Georgia City Council Pressures Mayor to Resign for Questioning the Notion of White Privilege
Bloomingdale, Ga. Mayor Ben Rozier is under fire from his town’s city council after giving his candid thoughts about white privilege theory, a common trope of the Marxist Left that is at war with Western Civilization.
Rozier had enough of Black Lives Matter (BLM) thuggery and posted the following Facebook message to set the record straight on what “privilege” is really all about:
“What is privilege?….
“Privilege is wearing $200 sneakers when you’ve never had a job.
“Privilege is wearing $300 Beats headphones while living on public assistance.
“Privilege is having a Smartphone with a Data plan which you receive no bill for.
“Privilege is living in subsidized housing where you don’t have a water bill, where rising property taxes and rents and energy costs have absolutely no effect on the amount of food you can put on your table.
“Privilege is the ability to go march against, and protest anything that triggers you without worrying about calling out of work and the consequences that accompany such behavior.
“Privilege is having as many children as you want, regardless of your employment status, and [to] be able to send them off to daycare or school you don’t pay for.
“Privilege is sending your kids to school early for the before-school programs and breakfast, and then keeping them there for the after-school program…paid for by the people who DO HAVE TO DEAL WITH RISING TAXES AND COSTS! …you know, us so-called ‘PRIVILEGED’ the ones who pay while you TAKE TAKE TAKE!”
The Bloomingdale City Council is calling for Rozier to resign immediately for his sin of telling the plain truth, which is no longer allowed in an America that is besieged by diversity and multiculturalism.
“The Bloomingdale City Council wishes to state collectively that this action taken by Mayor Rozier is his action and his action alone. We in no way condone or endorse any single or collective posts made by the Mayor,” the city council wrote in an announcement.
“It is unfortunate that Mayor Rozier’s posts on Facebook has caused this set of circumstances and ill will in our beloved community, in no way does this reflect the ideals and values of the City of Bloomingdale or the Bloomingdale City Council,” they added. “Based on the actions of Mayor Ben Rozier, the entire City Council has respectfully requested that Mayor Rozier tender his resignation immediately.”
Far-left organizers also organized a protest over the weekend against Rozier in which they called for his immediate resignation as Mayor of Bloomingdale.
“No one should be allowed to say the hateful rhetoric that he said that was obviously racist and post those pictures,” said organizer Hannah Minter. “If you are in a position of power and you speak for the people underneath you and the people of your community, you are not allowed to speak like that.”
“I think he absolutely needs to resign,” said organizer Destin Winter. “Whether or not you believe that the post was racist, it’s clearly unprofessional and he’s clearly not an effective leader.”
Despite the pressure, Rozier has given no indication that he plans on resigning from his duly elected post. He is the rare public official with the courage to stand and tell the truth against the left-wing mob.
