Democrat London Lamar is getting off to a great start. After Tennessee voters chose her to represent them in the State House, she thought it best to call them racists, and uneducated…
Well, just the ones with a certain skin tone…
A newly-elected Tennessee state lawmaker is apologizing after a video surfaced of the Democrat calling her state “racist” and claiming that most of its residents who “voted Republican are uneducated.”
The eyebrow-raising comments from London Lamar, a Democrat who is set to take office in January after running uncontested in the state’s House District 91 in the Memphis area, were made last week in a Facebook Live video posted the morning after the midterm elections.
“Let’s just call a spade a spade. Tennessee is racist. Period,” Lamar says in the video, which has been uploaded on several news websites after being taken off Facebook.
OK…Lets “call a spade, a spade”…
You’re an idiot.
Tennessee is our neighbor to the north and I’ve visited the state many times. Tennesseans are strong, independent, and so very sweet and kind.
All three races live in peace there.
Middle Tennessee is known as “the Athens of the South,” for the large concentration of institutes of higher learning found there.
When a Democrat says “uneducated,” they mean “un-indoctrinated!”
She is referring to people who ARE educated, but had the ability to think for themselves and didn’t buy into the liberal crap force-fed to students from start to finish.
Tennessee people, apparently, can sense and discard bull-crap…
“Most of the Tennesseans who voted Republican are uneducated. So, they don’t even know that they showed up to the polls to vote against their own interest,” Lamar says at another point in the video. “They literally voted on color lines.”
On Monday, Lamar, in a Facebook post addressing the footage, described it as a “statistical analysis of the midterm elections based on my numerous years of political experience.”
Her campaign website says she has served the President of the Tennessee Young Democrats and has been a vice-chairwoman of the Black Caucus of the Young Democrats of America, among other positions and recognitions.
“they showed up to the polls to vote against their own interest“:
What the hell are you talking about?
How is flooding the U.S. with third world idol worshipers who want to kill us, and illegal aliens criminals, in OUR OWN interest???
How is restricting the freedom to keep and bear arms, in OUR OWN interest???
Being forced to bake sodomite cakes???
Please, use all your “numerous years of political experience” to explain, once and for all, how any damn thing the Democrats try and force on free Americans could ever be construed as in our interest.
I particularly find her line, “they literally voted on color lines,” hilariously hypocritical given she’s pictured in our feature photo next to a homemade sign supporting a racist, hate-terror group, and proudly mentions her vice-chair role of the BLACK caucus…
It seems Ms. Lamar is the one who lines up along “color lines.”
She issued a half-assed apology…
“After a review of the numbers after the midterm election, I felt the need to record a Facebook live video to discuss the numbers from both Tennessee and nationwide,” Lamar wrote in the apology post. “My comments did not intend to make a generalization about every white person who voted Republican. The truth about a large number of those who responded with their vote for Republican candidates this election cycle is, they voted in response to the racially charged rhetoric that has come from our President.”
Lamar, however, provided no proof in her Facebook post to back up that claim, nor did she explain how she determined things such as the interests or motives of each of the voters who had cast their ballots in Tennessee last week.
She went on to say that Tennesseans “live in a state that is very racially polarized.”
“In my video I made one mistake and that was an over-generalization of white people and for that I sincerely apologize,” she said. “However, we must not discount the election day data. We live in a state that is very racially polarized. When you look at the needs of rural west, middle and east, the democratic values speaks to their needs. I sincerely desire for the great state of Tennessee to give the democratic values a chance to work for all people.”
