Georgia Democrat Lawmaker Resigns Amidst Partisan Pressure After Endorsing Trump’s Re-Election

Georgia state representative Vernon Jones has resigned.

Georgia state representative Vernon Jones of Lithonia is leaving his post after receiving a great deal of partisan backlash for endorsing President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign.

“Turn the lights off, I have left the plantation,” Jones said in a statement announcing his resignation. “Someone else can occupy that suite. Therefore, I intend not to complete my term effective April 22, 2020.”

Even though he is leaving the state legislature, Jones has no intention of leaving his party. He will instead try to talk sense into a Democrat Party that is growing more openly anti-American and communistic.

“I don’t plan to leave the Democratic Party because somebody’s got to be in there to hold them accountable —hold them accountable to how they are treating black people (and) root out the bigotry,” Jones told The Rashad Richey Morning Show right after he announced his resignation on Wednesday.

Richey was not happy with Jones and the interview ended abruptly. “Hang up on this clown, please,” the enraged host said.

Georgia Democrat leaders lined up to castigate Jones after he left the plantation last week, which set the stage for his resignation.

“We are going to take every step we can under our bylaws,” said John Jackson, the DeKalb County Democrat party chair, vowing to punish Jones for thinking for himself.

“We do not stand for President Trump. It’s Jones’ right to vote for who he wants, but when you get elected as a Democrat, you’re a part of the party leadership,” he added.

“He was never a Democrat but is gaming the system to win. He’s a wolf in sheep’s skin,” said Adrienne White, the Georgia Democrat Party’s vice-chair for recruitment, in a social media post.

“No supporter of a racist president who is actively trying to suppress the votes of eligible Americans will receive the backing of Fair Fight,” said spokesman Seth Bringman, who leads Stacey Abrams’ political organizing group Fair Fight.

Despite the fury from Democrats, Jones has not reversed his support for the president. He continues to advocate for Trump and his policies that have improved the black community.

“Let me be clear about one thing: I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party left me,” he said. “But one would say, ‘Why would a black man support Donald Trump?’ I would reverse that. Why wouldn’t a black man support Donald Trump?”

Although he may no longer be in office, Jones will continue to help other black Democrats find their way off the plantation and rally them in favor of President Trump heading into this year’s election.

Obama Reportedly Said Pete Buttigieg Too ‘Gay’ and ‘Short’ to be President

Tell it like it is, Barack!

Published

Former president Barack Hussein Obama reportedly said that former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg was too “gay” and too “short” to be a serious presidential contender during the midst of the 2020 presidential race.

Buttigieg, who ran for president in 2020 and surprisingly won the Iowa caucus, is now the Transportation Secretary under President-imposed Joe Biden. He is considered a rising star in the Democrat Party due to his homosexual lifestyle, which includes being gay married to a husband, but Obama is apparently a doubter.

Obama reportedly made his remarks while addressing a group of black Democrat donors in Oct. 2019 as he was attempting to exert his influence over the process. The revelation comes from a new book authored by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC’s Jonathan Allen titled, Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency.

At the time, Obama was apparently supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for president. The excerpt from the book, which includes various pot shots made by Obama toward Buttigieg, reads as follows:

When he was asked to return to the original question on his advice, Obama said he liked Buttigieg, a rising talent who’d worked on his own campaign. But despite his affinity for the South Bend mayor, he rattled off a list of reasons why Buttigieg couldn’t win. 

“He’s thirty- eight,” Obama said, pausing for dramatic effect, “but he looks thirty.” The audience laughed. Obama was on a roll, using the tone of light ridicule he some-times pointed at himself — ” big ears” and “a funny name,” he’d said so many times before. Now, it was directed at Buttigieg. “He’s the mayor of a small town,” the former president continued. “He’s gay,” Obama said, “and he’s short.” More laughter. 

Only months earlier, Buttigieg had sat in Obama’s postpresidential office in Washington seeking counsel on how to maintain equanimity in the face of homophobia on the campaign trail. Now, behind his back, Obama was riffing on him to some of the wealthiest Black men in America at a time when Buttigieg had been dubbed “Mayo Pete” by critics who believed he couldn’t connect with African American voters.

It goes without saying that any conservative who made similar remarks would be pilloried by the fake news media. Obama will get a pass, although the comments may make the former president’s relationship with the former mayor strained as Buttigieg climbs up the political ladder undeservedly due solely to identity politics.
