Watch your back Rep. Jones. Your party is evil. The penalty for apostasy is death.
‘Action Will Be Taken’: Georgia Democrats Vow Revenge On Lawmaker Who Endorsed Trump
By Daily Caller, April 14, 2020:
Georgia Democrats are targeting one of their own after state Rep. Vernon Jones endorsed President Donald Trump for reelection on Tuesday.
Jones announced his pick for president in an interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, praising Trump’s handling of the economy and issues impacting black Americans. The black lawmaker represents one of the most Democratic districts in Georgia covering parts of DeKalb and Rockdale counties.
“It’s very simple to me. President Trump’s handling of the economy, his support for historically black colleges and his criminal justice initiatives drew me to endorse his campaign,” Jones said.
“This is not about switching parties. There are a lot of African-Americans who clearly see and appreciate he’s doing something that’s never been done before,” Jones continued. “When you look at the unemployment rates among black Americans before the pandemic, they were at historic lows. That’s just a fact.”
Within hours of the interview being published, Democrats in Georgia began condemning Jones. One Democratic party leader from a county Jones represents promised “action” against Jones for siding with the Republican president.
“I am aware that Rep. Vernon Jones has endorsed Donald Trump. This is in no way acceptable. Action will be taken at @DekalbGADems steering committee meeting on Thursday. I will address this more later,” said John Jackson, Democratic chairman for DeKalb County.

State Sen. Nikema Williams, who chairs the state Democratic Party, released a statement Tuesday slamming Jones for endorsing the “racist” president. The senator called Jones an “embarrassment” to Georgia Democrats.
“[Jones] chose to stand with the racist president who has made an all-out assault on Black Americans, who has tried to rip away American health care, and who has failed our country in its greatest time of need during the most important election in our lifetimes,” Williams said. “Vernon Jones doesn’t speak for Georgians, and neither does Donald Trump — which is why Georgians will send him home in November 2020.”
