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.

    I am so proud of you! Most Democrats will die without having all of their Freedoms, they Have Allowed a Party of Bondage to Control them for generations, and to teach Hate for White People to keep them in line!

    When I registered to vote as an 18 year old, I believed in the ideas of the Democrat party by-in-large and was ready to do my part to support them. In the 40 plus years since, I have change my mind little , but my party has abandoned those ideas to embrace immorality at every turn while calling me bigoted for disagreeing. I did not leave my party-my party left me. I now vote as Republican. I no longer say, "I was a Democrat, I am now a Republican". I now say "I am Christian, and I vote my conscience".

    I have gotten to the point where I am as incredibly happy to hear a Democrat has left their party, endorsed Trump, and come to the realization of how horrible that party has become as I am to hear someone has experienced the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ! Honestly, it’s almost as important. Of course, I must apologize for being one who cannot believe it is possible to be both Christian and Democrat at the same time. May God have mercy on our souls ...Blessings to Rep. Vernon Jones for his courageous stand.

    So sad to lose good bipartisan politicians that put the good of its citizens above partisan politics. When will we learn.

    Pick up a REAL American history book...unless their parents still have college text books from the 1950's, I don't know where they're going to get REAL history!!!
    It's so horribly doctored that in today's books the bad guys are actually good guys and the good guys are bad for fighting the hood guys who were really bad!
    Makes nonsense,.. neither does the history they teach today!

    God bless you Sir for your service and I'm so sorry the Democrats did that to you. God has a bigger plan for you and he will open a door for you that never could have been opened before. I pray God gives you the strength, courage and boldness to continue your work and trust Him to lead, guide and direct you!

    Mr. Jones, I am so sorry that you and your family are being harassed. Thank you for your service to our nation. Thank you for taking a stand!!!! The truth about the democrats' policies needs to be exposed.

    The greatest fear the Democrytes have is a white Republican President ACTUALLY doing something for the black community, as opposed to the empty, carrot-on-a-stick, same old song, promises mantra they spout year after year... They are losing the base of their constituency to conservative ideals and that's what makes them so vicious in their attacks

    The people that he represents should be glad he's gone. He made an independent endorsement but he's in office to represent his constituents. Good Riddance!

    It is sad that the Democrats are so vile and belligerent to anyone who doesn’t have their views. Is this what you want to vote for???

    Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones, I commend your courage to hold to your convictions! I am also a former Democrat turned Republican. I deeply believe that President Trump has been anointed by God to be our leader during these tough times and I pray that he will be re-elected. Bless you, sir, and please bring many, many others in your culture to our side, the "Right' side! Meli in Texas

    If only all people in this country would think independently, we might elect people who really love this country and want to do what is best for it instead of just wanting to make themselves rich and keep power.

    Finally, others finding out what it means to be true American's. Be independent, otherwise it's
    The blind, leading the blind over the cliff. Sorry, not trying to say anything against the actual blind persons. But, if American's done wake up, and use their true senses, then we will make shambles of the freedoms of what we have now.
