REPUBLICAN SAYS BLACK DEMOCRAT ‘WILL GO MISSING’ OVER GEORGIA CIVIL WAR STATUE ROW

 

A black former state lawmaker from Atlanta shouldn’t be surprised if she is met with “something a lot more definitive” than torches if she keeps lobbying to remove Confederate Civil War monuments, a Georgia state lawmaker warned this week.

 

In a series of since-deleted Facebook messages, Republican state Representative Jason Spencer told former Georgia state Representative LaDawn Jones that “people in South Georgia are people of action, not drama,” and if she doesn’t understand that she “will go missing in the Okefenokee”—a wild, 438,000-acre swamp.

 

Sounds like a Philadelphia Mississippi threat to me.

 

I'll never meet Republicans halfway on making people disappear in a swamp. Not even on the threats, it's just unacceptable.

   The words of UT-Austin president, after 4 Confederate statues were removed from that campus, "Those statues were erected during the period of Jim Crow laws based on segregation.    The statues represented the subjugation of African Americans.    That remains true today for White Supremists who use them today to symbolize the hatred and bigotry".    

 

    (that was part of the statement that I read at jam packed City Council Meeting last night).  

 

    For all the hate words spewed here, the gathering in San Antonio last night, was called for by the local Black Lives Matter group - so no they haven't disappeared or gone into hiding and as I stated above, the Council Chamber was packed, more than 200 people signed up to speak on removing a single statue.
