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.
POLL: President Donald Trump Leads Joe Biden Nationally, 48% to 46%
The President has come roaring back.
A new poll conducted by British newspaper the Sunday Express in conjunction with the Democracy Institute reveals that President Donald Trump is leading Democratic challenger Joe Biden by a margin of 48% to 46%. The national poll was conducted last week.
Perhaps more significantly, the poll reveals that President Trump is handily leading Biden in the most crucial of swing states, leading with voters in the states of Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin by a handy margin of 48% to 43%. If such polls translate to election day victory margins, President Trump could secure an even greater election night victory than he did in 2016, taking 309 votes in the electoral college by flipping Minnesota red.
Democracy Institute Director Patrick Basham claims that the poll’s methodology accounts for a population of ‘shy’ Trump supporters who are reluctant to respond to polls from corporate mainstream media networks. The poll shows a wide enthusiasm gap in the President’s favor, but Basham claims that 71% of planned Trump supporters are cautionary about revealing that they publicly support the President’s campaign for re-election.
Voters describe the economy as the most important issue in the election, with coronavirus containment coming in second. A majority of voters currently disapprove of President Trump’s coronavirus response in the poll, suggesting the President has room to grow his base of support by making progress in halting the coronavirus pandemic.
The poll is the latest suggesting that the presidential election is far more competitive than methodologically challenged polls from corporate media outlets suggest.
