Michael Williams: DeKalb County Planning to Defy State Law on Confederate Monuments

Sen. Michael Williams, Republican candidate for Georgia Governor:

“The DeKalb County Commission is openly seeking to defy state law regarding Georgia’s Confederate monuments. In last night’s Commission meeting, it was decided to seek a way around the spirit of the law to remove a Confederate monument in the City of Decatur. While they may attempt to play word games with the law, it is very clear that Confederate monuments on government property may not be ‘relocated, removed, concealed, obscured, or altered in any fashion.’”

Williams continued, “this is another attempt by the Democrats to stir up racial tension rather than healing. There was no controversy over this monument until they created one. After a record number of black Americans voted for President Trump, Democrats are grasping at straws to pit Americans against each other based on race. “

“It should be noted that DeKalb Commissioner Nancy Jester did not fall prey to this false controversy. She should be commended for her vote of opposition to this resolution,” Williams added.

In 2004, for example, President Bush got 11% of the black vote or roughly 1.47 million votes. In 2016, Trump got 8% of the black vote or roughly 1.3 million votes. Yes, Trump improved on Romney’s share of the black vote (6% to 8%), but that figure is misleading considering there was a significant drop in black turnout from 2012 to 2016 (66.6% to 59.6%, the largest percentage point decline… Read more »

Who do you fault for the drop? Not energized by Hilly?

Reagan got 15% of the black vote and 37% of the Hispanic vote in 1980. While his percentage of the black vote dropped in 1984, his percentage of the Hispanic vote went to an unreal 66%. How times have changed.

We should ask Roy Moore: What do you do when you do not approve of the law regarding the placement of a statue?

Yeah, leave it to the Democrats to seek to undo the racial healing of disproportionately unjust treatment of African Americans by the justice system fostered by the Southern Strategy.
