Palm Beach Democrat Official Goes On Rant Against Combat Veteran, Calls Him ‘Traitor’

She lost her mind.

An elected official in Palm Beach is under fire after a horrific Facebook rant, in which she degraded a military combat veteran.

“On July 16, 2018, a local elected official from the Palm Beach Soil and Water Conservation Board of Supervisors viciously attacked a US military veteran using derogatory, divisive, and unprofessional language on social media; that elected official is Vice Chair Patricia “Pat” Edmondson,” wrote Michael Barnett, Chairman Republican Party of Palm Beach County on Facebook. “Such behavior by a public official cannot be tolerated.”

Edmonson’s comments were directed towards James Plowman, a combat veteran.

“I don’t bother with traitors,” she wrote in one comment. “Do your dead brothers ever visit you in your dreams and ask you why you’ve turned your back on them? Does it wake you up with your heart pounding? Are you disoriented? Do you smell the rotting flesh of those you’ve betrayed? You’re a traitor. Live with it.”

Not that Democrats have ever respected our fine military service members, but this has to be a new low.

Another post from Edmonson suggests that Plowman has an “untreated traumatic brain injury.”

Edmonson is listed as a Board Member of the West Palm Beach Democratic Club and was a volunteer leader in the Palm Beach County “Hillary for America” campaign, according to Biz Pac Review.

Barnett posted a handy screenshot showing all of Edmonson’s vile comments:

“Differences in political opinion should be discussed with more diplomacy and mutual respect than Ms. Edmondson displayed towards Mr. James Plowman, a military veteran,” he wrote. No one, whether a veteran or a private citizen, should ever be treated so contemptuously by an elected official.”

Barnett called for local Democrats to disavow Edmonson.

“In addition, Ms. Edmonson should apologize to all veterans who have faithfully served this country – the men and women who sacrificed so much deserve better.”
