A sane Democrat (no, really!) breaks ranks

Good on ya, Congressman, and welcome aboard.

Georgia Democrat Vernon Jones said Thursday that the way his party has treated him since he endorsed President Donald Trump is proof that “they are the bigots they claim to hate.”

“The way the Democrat Party has treated me this past week has made one thing clear: they are the bigots they claim to hate and I won’t be silent about it,” Jones tweeted along with a video of local news coverage of his resignation from the state House.

Jones received immediate backlash from within his own party after he announced his support for Trump, saying that the president had done great things for the black community.

“I’m a Georgia State Representative and lifelong Democrat. But in this election, I’ll be casting my vote for @realdonaldtrump,” Jones tweeted just last week, adding, “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The Party left me.”

He threw in a Reagan quote too? No wonder the plantation overseers flipped out with rage on him.

“I’m sick and tired of me and my family being attacked and harassed by the Democrat Party for putting my country before my party,” Jones said in a statement released Wednesday and first obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

After the usual Democrat-Socialist shitfling over his sudden lapse into reason and rationality, Jones announced his intention to resign from office. Happily, he thought it over and decided to stick another thumb into their eye instead.

State Rep. Vernon Jones backtracked Thursday on plans to resign from his General Assembly seat, a day after announcing he would step down in the wake of fierce criticism for his endorsement of President Donald Trump’s reelection bid.

Jones, D-Lithonia, said on Twitter he decided to reverse course after receiving “overwhelming support and outcry” following his resignation decision Wednesday morning.

“That was emotional and that was motivational,” Vernon said, shortly before noting he will remain in the primary to hold his state House seat.

“Turn the lights off, I have left the plantation,” Jones said in a statement announcing his resignation Wednesday. “Someone else can occupy that suite.”

Again: good on ya, sir.

In recent comments, Jones criticized the Democratic Party as a stifling influence on conservative black Americans. He also hailed Trump’s economic record, his support for historic black colleges and universities, and for signing legislation to release low-level federal prisoners.

Jones has also lashed out against Democratic lawmakers for their stances on immigration, noting he prefers the crackdown approach Trump takes on illegal border crossings.

In a radio interview Wednesday morning, Jones said he plans to remain a Democrat despite the fact his statements of late have met with intense criticism from Georgia Democratic leaders.

“What are they going to do, spank me?” Jones said on The Rashad Richey Morning Show. “I don’t care what the Democratic Party is going to do.”

Nor should you. Nor should anybody, really.

  1. As I noted elsewhere, I was wrong when I said there wasn’t a sane non-commie democrat left. There is at least one.

    I still believe there may come a time when 20% or more of the black vote will leave the slave plantation. When that day comes the commie party is in really deep trouble.
