Job Opening: DuPage County Democratic Party social media director

Mary Lemanski, social media manager for the Democratic Party of DuPage County, was let go from her position Monday morning after posting a series of tweets comparing Kyle Rittenhouse to the driver of the SUV that sped through barricades and struck dancers, musicians and others during a Waukesha, Wisconsin, Christmas parade.

ďIt was probably just self-defense #Wisconsin #KyleRittenhouse,Ē Lemanski tweeted about the tragedy that left five dead and 40 injured.

She followed up the statement, replying to a comment deriding her opinion and saying, ďIím sad. Iím sad anytime anyone dies. I just believe in Karma and this came around quick on the citizens of Wisconsin.Ē

1. Social Media Manager?

She failed at Rule #1 of Social Media. THINK before you post something that might be considered out of line.

6. That's true

Democrats don't get away with what Republicans do.

9. It Was A Stupid & Premature Statement By Her

I don't care whether she's a Democrat or a repub. It was very insensitive given the fact many were killed and injured.

11. That is fine..

But when we hold our own accountable, we must point out Republicans are worse and do not hold their own accountable.

13. You Seem To Be Implying A Repub Would Have Gotten Away With Those Comments

Given how dumb the comments were, thatís not a safe assumption.

Comments like that do nothing to make our side look better. Just enables people to maintain that both sides make insensitive comments.

Iím glad she was fired. We should be better than that.

14. I think this why we lose

We are always playing defense. Republicans always go on the offense when put on the defense. And it works.

15. We Just Have Standards

There was no defense or justification for her comment. You canít go on offense when defending the indefensible.

She was almost implying that the people killed/injured deserved it because Kyle was acquitted by a Wisconsin jury.

16. You are misconstruing my argument

I am not saying we should defend the indefensible. The women should be fired. I am saying we should deflect and attack Republicans for not holding their own accountable.

17. Well, That Goes Without Saying

But that's what makes them repubs. Instead of admitting that they're guilty of something, they double down and rally the troops.

I don't know that they're ever going to change. Corruption, Breaking The Law, Acting Insensitive, and generally Behaving Badly, is kind of their brand.

8. Just reiterating what someone pointed out upthread:

What, does she think she's a republican so she can get away with that? Never forget: Democrats have Consequences.

12. No sympathy, she should have known better

Terrible thing to say.

(And frankly DuPage County is in no place to throw stones.)
