Heartless Mayor In Texas Resigns After Telling Freezing Residents Desperate For Power To Stop Being Lazy
If you haven’t been following the news, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and especially Texas just experienced their worst winter storm in over 100 years.
A large portion of the state, including Dallas, experienced lows below zero. That’s almost unheard of in Texas. In addition to the shockingly cold temperatures, there were also two winter storms that rolled through the area, dropping several inches of snow and lots of ice.
All this caused Texas’s power supply to fail miserably. Of course, conservatives in the state tried to blame this on green energy, blaming the frozen wind turbines, but of course their claims weren’t based on facts. They never are. The situation was mostly caused by a natural gas failure.
Anyway, millions of people in Texas have been without power for over three days, and some have even been without water as well. At least 17 people have died during the storm.
We say all this to set the stage for perhaps the worst mayor in history. Folks in the little town of Colorado City, TX, located just outside of Abilene (where temps fell five below zero) elected one a**hole of a mayor.
The mayor, Tim Boyd, went on Facebook during the storm to tell his residents to stop being lazy and asking for handouts, as they were literally freezing to death inside their homes.
In his lengthy rant, he tried to blame socialism for all of this…

God has given us the tools to support ourselves in times like this? If God gave us everything we needed to live long lives on Earth, we would have never had the need to develop vaccines for deadly viruses that would have surely wiped out the majority of people living on Earth.
Does he think people back in the day just always survived extreme weather? DOES HE THINK HIS RESIDENTS ARE GOING TO GO OUT INTO THE WILDERNESS AND SKIN A F**KING BUFFALO TO KEEP WARM?
This dude is nuts. Of course, the post was deleted, but not before it was shared across the internet. He received lots of backlash and later announced he was quitting.
He also kinda issued an apology…
I would never want to hurt the elderly or anyone that is in true need of help to be left to fend for themselves. I was only making the statement that those folks that are too lazy to get up and fend for themselves but are capable should not be dealt a handout. I apologize for the wording and some of the phrases that were used!
As of Wednesday morning, nearly 3 million homes and businesses are still without power in Texas…but hey, toughen up you snowflakes! DRINK URINE IF YOU MUST! STOP BEING LAZY!
