Georgia GOPer says his warning that Democrat could disappear in a swamp was ‘misinterpreted’

A Georgia Republican lawmaker who warned that his Democratic former colleague could “go missing in the Okefenokee” over supporting the removal of Civil War monuments said he regrets that his comments on Facebook were “misinterpreted as a threat against her.”

State Rep. Jason Spencer added that the nation’s “terrible” racial division would only get worse if he cannot continue to have the type of conversation he had on social media with former Democratic state Rep. LaDawn Jones.

“It is a painful conversation that we need to have, in our communities, our state, and our nation,” the Woodbine Republican said Wednesday in a statement. I’m grateful that LaDawn Jones is willing to start that conversation with me, and I hope that our experience will start similar conversations among others.”

Spencer has faced a flood of criticism since he warned Jones, who is black, that she won’t be “met with torches but something a lot more definitive” if she continues to call for the removal of Confederate statues in south Georgia.

    I understood it, no explanation necessary these pissy boys and girls need to put on their big boy britches and the girls their big girl knickers. If you consider this a threat you obviously are oblivious to what is happening all around us daily.

    The time for talking is over, Chamberlain tried to talk to Hitler, look what happened. The situation is now “Critical”, “Dangerous”, “Out of Control: and a threat to anyone who does not back these monsters created by Obama and the Progressives and make no mistake about it, it was created with a purpose and we are seeing what that purpose is.

    The evil in the works and entrenched more daily in evil. Take them down and out. No more violence without punishment.

      A SUPER, SUPER comment Tiger and SO TRUE! I’ve never seen so many calling for the NEXT CIVIL WAR, but for some reason our GOV. isn’t doing one D’N thing about it! Are they WANTING something to HAPPEN so they can consider the WHITE MAN a Domestic Terrorist so they can use what ever! But if it’s black, or muslim and now Antifa it’s just fine! Maybe Nostradamus was right, the New World (AMERICA) would see 2 Civil Wars, both would be very BLOODY, we’ve had one my friend!! America is AWAKE and it has the GOV. worried for they will really be no winners, we’ve both been in the military and know what can happen!!

        Thank you Rodney it seems I am not alone in my summation. Activists on the Left are saying Antifa a gift to the Right. Mags that back Liberals are telling them they need to squelch the riots and violence. They are of course correct.

        The catastrophic events in Texas, the way it was handled, the responses by the hated Christians and good people of this country has given the Left a KO. They have laughed, mocked and attempted to belittle all the good done, how sad is that and what kind of people do such a thing.

        The Stark Reality is that Katrina brought such looting, rape and corruption visible to all watching that it is now seen more clearly than ever for what it was and who was responsible for it. Allowed it etc. Texas is indeed a Star in the Stars and Stripes forever.

          AMEN Girl, AMEN!! You can really tell the difference between a person that loves his country and one that hates it !!!!!!!

            For sure and notice that those giving CEO etc. to Texas are all Christian companies or backed Trump, also Trump giving 1 million of his own money, where is the Left’s millionaires and billionaires? Where is Zuckerberg who has billions sitting in the savings? He wanted everyone to get a paycheck, wouldn’t this be a time to give? And Hollywood where are they along with Rappers etc. I also told one Leftie hey you see anyone being thrown off the boats saving people? They are saving not according to race and color or political affiliation but to need and a love for all humanity.

            The Left is nothing more than a Comedy and Tragedy all in one.

          2. Rodney Steward says:

            You couldn’t be more right, where is the big money, are these B-TARDS this sick, or is it because Texas voted Trump!! And it’s been said that Suckerberg’s going to run for President the next go around!!

            Not there they only talk the talk but never walk the walk. Just another nail in their coffins and more fodder for 2018 and 2020.
