Sadly, in The Age of _____, the Asshats are multiplying, like cockroaches.
Georgia State Representative, and Repugnant Republican, Jason Spencer, might just be one of the “fine people” _____ recently mentioned who are white supremacists or ... he’s an Asshat; you decide.
Over there to the Facebook, former state representative and colleague of Spencer’s, LaDawn Jones came upon a photo Spencer had taken alongside a monument to Confederate president Jefferson Davis and posted with this statement:
“This is Georgia’s history.”
LaDawn Jones questioned whether state tax dollars should pay for the upkeep of the memorial, which includes the house Davis fled to after the Civil War ended. Jason didn’t like that ... and he replied:
“Continue your quixotic journey into South Georgia and it will not be pleasant. The truth. Not a warning. Those folks won’t put up with it like they do in Atlanta. I can guarantee you won’t be met with torches but something a lot more definitive.”
Doesn’t that sound a little like a threat, especially when you toss into the story the fact that LaDawn Jones is a black woman?
When someone else commented about the differences between Atlanta—which has a large black population—and the rest of Georgia—which, I’m guessing has a large population of bigots, rednecks and Klansmen— Spencer agreed.
“They will go missing in the Okefenokee [swamp]. Too many necks they are red around here. Don’t say I didn’t warn you about ’em.”
Now, it might just be me, but that’s a threat, and that’s exactly how Jones took it:
“Sounds like a threat of physical violence … is that what we are doing now? Desperate times call for desperate measures huh? Afraid of what is going to happen in southern GA? I saw those white supremacists crying when sh*t really hit the fan.”
No comment from Jason because he probably just realized that he’s a white elected official from Bigoted, Rednecked, Alt-Right South Georgia, who just threatened a black woman on Facebook, and, as most cockroaches do, he scurried back into that hole in the wall when the lights came on and he was exposed.
Jason Spencer; ignorant, bigoted, racist, rednecked Asshat of the Week.
I'd ask Georgians to vote him out, but ... it's Georgia.
