John Sims, Cooper City Commissioner, Posts Racist Obama Message on Facebook

Cooper City City Commissioner John Sims is considered to be "outspoken." A straight shooter who isn't afraid to "tell it like it is."

He's also mind-blowingly racist.

As Bob Norman reports, Sims had himself a racisorgasm and threw out every racial stereotype anyone has ever said pertaining to Obama EVER.

And, of course, he did it on Facebook.

Sims took to the The Facebook to make a joke about a fake Obama stimulus package he received:

"Just wanted to let you I received my 2013 Social Security Stimulus Package. It contained two tomato seeds, cornbread mix, two discount coupons to KFC, an 'Obama Hope & Change' bumper sticker, a prayer rug, a machine to blow smoke up my ass and a 'Blame it on Bush' poster for the front yard. The directions were in Spanish. Yours should arrive soon."

Holy. And shit. That's a bouillabaisse of racism right thurrrr!!

Although we're willing to bet Sims wrote "two watermelon seeds" and then was all I need to be more subtle with my racism! and changed it to "two tomato seeds."

The corn-bread mix and coupons for fried chicken, though, those made the cut.

Of course, Sims soon deleted the post. But only after people were outraged about it.

"It was obviously negative racial stereotypes putting down African-Americans, Hispanics, and he was putting down a religion," Cooper City resident and assistant chief of the Hollywood Police Department James Jones told Norman

"People need to know this -- he's an elected official, and people need to know this about him. He is representing us, and people are paying him to do that."

Jones sent an email to City Hall asking other commissioners to denounce Sims and call for his resignation. 

According to Norman, Sims says he took down the original message and reposted it differently because "some might view it as inappropriate."

Or, as straight-shooting Cooper City City Commissioner John Sims might call it: RACISM.

We scoured Sims' Facebook page for the "re-worded post" but, between the posts about Bill Whittle for President! and pictures of bison meatballs, we couldn't find it. Or maybe it's because we no eh-speeck-ah deh Engleech, and so we just missed it.

Although we noticed his favorite quote is "Don't Tread on Me."

Because of course it is.

It is okay to put down religion, but not at the expense of one religion ( because I would bet that he is a card carrying member of the judeo/christian cult). The rest of his rant is the utterances of a demented mugwump. Great thing about social media is that the cretins of the world get a chance to expose their collective asses. Does Florida law allow recall for city commissioners, or is it left to the Guv to toss them out (good chance with Skeletor at the helm).  Let's see what his constituency has to say.


Cooper City is where the whites are making a final stand in Broward.


On a positive note, at least Sims didn't threaten to pop him in the ass with a cap.

That seems to be a common refrain amongst the Angry Old White Guys Who Sell Insurance, er..., the GOP.

Oh no...Someone denegrated Saint Obama?  What?????  Let's all march on Cooper City Hall.  Demand an apology, burn him in effigy.

Bet he's a birther nut too.


Ask John about his job at a certain engineering firm, formerly in Boca, now in Pompano Beach (on Military Trail)… A certain family owned enterprise bought out by a large multinational.

How he got shown the door… How he was always surfing the web (aka naughty bits)… How he was goofing off all day long.

How he was blisteringly fucking incompetent.

How he was intensely disliked by his coworkers… How they put up with his lying. His cheating… His deception.

A close personal friend of mine, who worked with Sims, told me, “I’ve never met a bigger liar in all of my days. One thing is sure… If Simms was talking, he was lying.”How he can’t find another job.

Yeah John. I know your whole deal…

We both know I was under a cone of silence that’s no longer applicable.

Want me to tell the world? Or will you?


I always am amused by so called " straight shooters" .  I am pretty certain the members of the KKK or National Socialist Party , also fancied themselves as, " truth tellers" "straight talkers."

Its just coded language for closed minded, bigots to get their message across to other people of same ilk. Mr Sims

Puleeze, just come right out and say what it is that you really want to say and don't worry about political correctness. Just be honest , since that's what you want to portray yourself as who you really are.

@KennyPowersII There's only a few ways to remove a Commish.  Recalls are *Very costly* -- as I helped Fane Lozman with Recall Riviera Beach.

He can resign (ain't happening, as that would kill his bottom line).

He can be removed for committing certain crimes (his utter blazing stupidity, though, isn't illegal).

The option of a public censure exists - a dressing down by his colleagues on the dais.  Not likely, as most politicians lack any testicular fortitude.

@winsomelosesome No. More like an elected official was really, really, ridiculously racist. But, keep reading what you want to read, winsome. It seems to be working for ya.

And I have some recommended reading for you too.  No, never mind, it's for open minded people.

Look, the guy made some stupid, and yes, racist comments.  The question is is, is he a racist? I don't know, maybe he is but it's a hell of a charge to level based on some FB ramblings.  I'm not defending what he said, just pointing out that ANY comment against the annointed one is viewed, first, through the prism of racism. And that deminishes the point that often times is being made. 

Question...Is Jason Whitlock racist?

winsomelosesome topcommenter


This all started with a stupid attempt at sarcasm on my part. You took umbridge at my Obama comments.

I am calm and not shouting.  I had no problem with you calling out racist behavior. I DID  have a problem with you labeling someone a racist.  You don't seem to be willing to acknowledge you did that. 

We disagree on political solutions to problems based on our own beliefs.  No problem. I felt this went beyond that.

@winsomelosesome Holy crap calm down. 


If anyone -- Democrat or Republican -- does something stupid (ie racist), then I will post it. You're so bent on disagreeing with me and yelling at me you miss the human fucking element of the story.

Some d-bag commissioner did a very racist thing. THAT'S IT. Doesn't matter what party he belongs to. And the fact that it's in Cooper City makes it newsworthy here.

Holy smokes, man. 

winsomelosesome topcommenter


And don't YOU get all indignanat when I call you out on your stupid rush to judgement reporting.  I don't know this Sims guy.  I DO know it takes a TOTAL LACK OF DISCIPLINE to lable him a racist based on what you have. 

He's a Republican so that made it easy for you.  Just look the hell around you, stop knee jerking all the time. 

And your Whitlock comment was such a cop out.

Anyway, you're right. The Internet is a big place.  Time to take a break.  Fight the good fight, Chris.  Except, if you fight it here,you won't get anyone to disagree with you,

@winsomelosesome Yes, what he did was mind-blowingly racist. There is no grey area there.

Look, I honestly can't debate someone in circles, man. It's futile.

The internet's a big place, winsome. You don't need to hang here if you don't like me calling out racists or calling out Rubio on his shit.

I'm not making up these stories. Your GOPers in public office do it to themselves. Don't get all butthurt because we call them out on it.

You want to debate policy with me, let's do it. But not in a blog post where a guy was a racist ass. It makes you look just as horrible as he does, and I'd like to give you the benefit of the doubt and think you're not like Commissioner Sims.

That's all.

@winsomelosesome "I'm not defending what he said". Yeah we know, you're just another "openminded" teabagger.

winsomelosesome topcommenter


Chris. You called the guy a racist, man. "He's also mind-blowingly racist.." 

Is there some voting record I'm missing here?  He said/did a racist thing.  I was questioning your wisdom in labeling him such based on some ramblings on FB.

Hymietown.  Is Jessie Jackson an Anti-Semite?

And, as far as picking my battles, I can do that just fine on my own, thank you.  It doesn't seem to matter which battle I choose, your minions are quick to respond. 

Speaking of picking battles, you might want to give Rubio a rest as it can get tiresome if it is  going to continue for 4 years.

Doesn't go down so well when someone else suggests it, eh?

chrisjoseph13 writer

@winsomelosesome Uhhh.... It's pretty clear that what Sims wrote was racist -- which, by the way, is nothing new with your party over the last four years regarding our president. But yea, OPEN MINDERRRDERNNESSS.....

There is no other message here other than an elected official did a racist thing.  Obama is only mentioned because Sims happened to mention him.

Look, I get that you disagree with me politically -- that's fine. But you gotta pick your battles, dude. Seriously. There is NO DEFENSE for what Sims did. None. NONE. Nooooooonneeeee. Sims even knows that. 

(As for Whitlock: I don't read him, so I have no comment or opinion on the man)
