Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams has endorsed Joshua Hosler over former Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt (R-Colorado Springs) in the race to be vice chair of the El Paso County Republican Party.
With the high profile endorsement of Williams in his pocket, Hosler’s social media activity is under scrutiny.
For example, shortly after receiving Williams’ endorsement last week, Hosler, posted a meme on Facebook stating: “ISIS Beware: We Don’t Work For Your Brother Anymore.”
Does this mean Hosler thinks Obama is member of ISIS or an Islamic extremist?
No, Hosler told me in an interview today. The meme was intended to blame Obama for ISIS, Hosler said, who’s touting the Williams endorsement below.
Hosler believes Obama is responsible for the creation of ISIS, due to his decision to withdraw American troops from Iraq. Hosler says the troop withdrawal created a “vacuum” that allowed ISIS to form.
“The vacuum there was created by Obama and that created ISIS,” said Hosler, who emphasized that he does not believe Obama is a Muslim. Hosler said he served in Iraq in 2009, fighting in Mosal.
