Now that Donald Trump has successfully eliminated decency and honor from the public arena, plenty of political observers are asking, “Where do we go from here?” You might think that there is nowhere to go but up, but you’d be wrong, for many of the nation’s political players have descended into madness.
Mother Jones reports that the Republican candidates seeking the governor’s office in Georgia, are taking the President’s sanctimonious race-bating to the next (lower) level.
Brian Kemp—who serves as Georgia’s secretary of state—suggests he intends to personally detain and remove immigrants from the country.
I got a big truck, just in case I need to round up criminal illegals and take ’em home myself. Yep, I just said that.
Kemp really sticks it to the liberal elite with that one—he admits he’s a racist and lives to tell about it!
In the race to the extreme right, Georgia’s Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle refuses to be out-rednecked by anyone. Here’s Cagle’s counterpunch:
Pema Levy, the Mother Jones reporter, suggests that “a race in which candidates seem to be threatening to carry out extrajudicial kidnappings is an ominous indication of where the 2018 campaign season could be headed.”
Georgia’s primary election is Tuesday, May 22nd.
