Yeah he’s done. Probably couldn’t respectfully run for class president with that trail in his past. Lesson for the millennials!May 8, 2015 10:53 pm at 10:53 pm #1075614
Lesson for everyone!
I’ve seen people of all ages at like complete morons on social media. ;)May 9, 2015 12:12 am at 12:12 am #1075632
It cracks me up the number of people still defending him by saying “he was in college” or “they’re just jokes.” The dude’s 26 and together those posts add up to one sad, hateful little man. I hope he drops out but if he doesn’t it will be my pleasure to not vote for him.May 9, 2015 6:02 am at 6:02 am #1075637
For a trip to bizarro world, let me recommend visiting the “Take Back Gahanna” Facebook page to see the discussions on this…and yeah, that’s a real thing.May 9, 2015 8:17 am at 8:17 am #1075640May 9, 2015 9:37 am at 9:37 am #1075644
Now there’s a whole conspiratorial thing about the Stonewall Democrats getting involved…countdown to use of the phrase “gay agenda” starting now…May 9, 2015 10:18 am at 10:18 am #1075654

Heh. Does it really matter WHO is pointing out the guy’s asshattery? If Joseph Gergley has a history of posting racist, sexist and homophobic messages, then to me it sounds like there’s only one person to blame.May 9, 2015 1:58 pm at 1:58 pm #1075666May 10, 2015 1:20 pm at 1:20 pm #1075732May 10, 2015 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #1075739
Didn’t mean to be a racist, sexist homophobe. My bad.May 10, 2015 3:02 pm at 3:02 pm #1075741
Also “bittersweet” is one word and “past social media posts from my past” is redundant. Even if his character wasn’t shaky his grammar would be. (Plenty of misspelled words in his hateful tweets as well.)May 10, 2015 5:30 pm at 5:30 pm #1075745

Also…apology in paragraph 4? Nothing like burying the lead.May 10, 2015 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #1075750May 10, 2015 9:18 pm at 9:18 pm #1075757

And only after spending paragraphs 2 and 3 blaming the media for not printing his quote exactly as he saw fit. As if playing the victim card and attempting to offset the blame onto the media could help cast him in a better light.
