Perdue Makes Racist Remarks About Stacey Abrams

This rich white entitled racist asshole.   I watched her full statement.   She listed off the many ways Georgia was behind in the country like the states ranking in education and healthcare and she said it was not the best place.    She was telling the truth based on facts and she was saying there is room for improvement.  But Republicans hate the truth.   Also Perdue made a comment in the full version of this attack about how Abrams wanted the black workers to leave the fields and black workers to leave their jobs implying she was telling them not to work which is the Republican fantasy that all blacks live on welfare.    She was asking them to take time off to vote.  But this asshole Perdue made the comment that black people needed to stay out in the fields as it that was their place assigned by god.    On she is not from Georgia she was born in Wisconsin and lived there for 18 months.   She moved to Georgia as a child and she has made enough money to move if she did not love the state.      Really makes her a carpet bagger.     Hugs

 

The New York Times reports:

Former Senator David Perdue ended his Trump-inspired campaign for governor of Georgia with a racist appeal to Republican primary voters on Monday, accusing Stacey Abrams, the Black woman who is the presumptive Democratic nominee, of “demeaning her own race” in how she has described the state’s problems.

Speaking to an overwhelmingly white crowd, Mr. Perdue trained his ire on Ms. Abrams, who narrowly lost the 2018 governor’s race to Gov. Brian Kemp, the Republican whom Mr. Perdue is vying to unseat in Tuesday’s primary.

“Did you all see what Stacey said this weekend?” Mr. Perdue said from the stage. “She said that Georgia is the worst place in the country to live. Hey, she ain’t from here. Let her go back to where she came from. She doesn’t like it here.”

She moved to Georgia as a child.

Perdue is clearly desperate, and showing just how low he’s willing to go.

But the dog whistle there is “go back to Africa”

He’s also quite stupid in not realizing that she is correct in everything she says, and can back it all up by the actual data.

I think it’s more that he’s talking to stupid people, which is not necessarily a stupid strategy. The people he’s talking to will never fact-check anything.

Racists exist, they’ve always existed, we just need to vote and keep them out of office. If they get in, or remain in office – that’s on us.

He has a point. Ms. Abrams has only lived in GA for about 32 of her 48 years, making her a minor prior to living there. We all know that children always decide where their parents will reside.

Gee, I’m shocked that this man who had no qualms launching anitsemitic attacks against Ossoff would launch racist attacks against Abrams. /s 😡

This is nothing but a desperate attempt by someone WAY behind in the polls to get some media attention. He’s not going to win the primary. He’s irrelevant. That said, the fact that no Republicans are standing up against crap like this is more than enough evidence (like we needed more) that the GQP is a racist part. Or a party that panders to racists, as if those two things are actually different.
