Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones, who made headlines for being an African-American Democrat who endorsed Trump’s reelection, is stepping down from his office less than a week later. He said he’s sick and tired of him and his family being attacked and harassed by the Democrat Party for putting his country ahead of his political party.

Jones said, “I take pride in being an independent thinker. My First Amendment right to freedom of speech is under siege. I intend to help the Democrat Party get rid of its bigotry against Black people that are independent and conservative. Turn the lights off, I have left the plantation. Someone else can occupy that suite.”

He said that with Trump’s record of creating jobs and record-low unemployment for African-Americans, he is best prepared to lead a post-virus recovery. He added, “I endorsed the White guy (Trump) that let Blacks out of jail, and they endorsed the White guy (Biden) that put Blacks in jail.”

The Democrats are playing a dangerous game by refusing to rein in their Trump Derangement Syndrome mobs with their vicious intolerance of any wavering from the leftist line. They’ve already sparked a “Walk Away” movement. If they can’t count on 90+ percent support from black voters, they’re in trouble electorally. And when their intolerance has grown so glaring that their own Black office holders are not only walking away, they’re comparing the trip to fleeing a plantation, that’s really bad optics. It might even inspire a lot of miseducated students to finally pick up a real American history book and learn who ran the original plantations and which party was created to end that system.

    It Is In my opinion that the black people should know who started the KKK and what congressman was in office running the KKK for many years.I think the Democrat party has abused black people for years using them to get votes.It Just not fair to have black people thinking that the Democrat party Is there to help them..

    I just read this a.m. that because of the overwhelming Rep. Jones received from across the Nation, he rescinded his resignation. I certainly hope this is true.

    He dropped out because he couldn't live honestly supporting a man of such low values. He was indeed a pawn and realizes his biggest mistake. Such an embarassment to his people.

    I'm tired of the misinformed narrative that the 1860s Republican Party is the Rrpublican Party of 2020. The two party political system exists to maintain the priviledge of the status quo. The assumption that one party is somehow better for minorites shows a lack of understanding of American history. Vernon Jones is merely leaving one plo antation for another one. Trump had nothing to do with the market firces that created more jobs for blacks. Any jobs blacks have are incidental to the bigger economic picture. Maybe Trump has a special position for ass-kissing blacks . #WDDWM

    Everyone has the right, or should have the right, to speak their thoughts without consequence. I am sad that you and your family were treated so badly. No person is perfect, but I am glad you acknowledge President Trump's good decisions. It is too bad that so many democrats have such a bad agenda and are so intent on taking Trump down. I wish you and your family the best and God's Blessings.

    Many blessings for your decision. Our country has never been like this in my lifetime. The parties have never been this mean. I am in my 70s and want so badly to get our country turning back to common sense and to the Lord. America has always been great until the lat 20-30 years. So sad because of selfishness.
