Watch Georgia Democrats Shout Down a Political Candidate For Being White

Supporters and campaign staff of the Democrats' gubernatorial nominee in Georgia silenced a woman for being white.

Stacey Abrams is the Democrats' gubernatorial nominee in Georgia. You can watch the above video for yourself. It happened last July at the leftwing Netroots Nations conference that was held in Atlanta, GA.

Taking the stage is Stacey Evans, who was Abrams' Democrat opponent in the primary. Abrams' supporters, including some of her staff, disrupt Evans' speech and begin to loudly chant "Trust Black Women."

What we are seeing as the campaign for Georgia Governor concludes is that the Democrats who back Stacey Abrams have returned to their original playbook. They are weaponizing race into an "us v. them" issue. They drowned out a white woman on a stage because she was white and now they're screaming that Republican Brian Kemp is trying to keep black people from voting.

Democrats scream about Republican divisiveness, but Democrats are dividing up people along racial lines thinking it will help them politically.

confused... while protesters were out of line-- where was Abrams? Is that her at the end, where all I hear is "We have to have respect?" -- Why is she responsible for these protesters actions?

When a person acts badly, they most likely will be treated badly. That is as it should be; because rewarding bad behavior only teaches others to act badly. No one should reward these people by condoning their bad behavior. Sometimes your "free speech" comes with a price you don't want to pay!

Shouting down a gubernatorial candidate at a political "forum" is not democracy in action, but more a form of mob-ocracy. The difficulty for Stacey Abrams appears to be that she can't easily distance herself from her most ardent supporters -- but if she doesn't, then their "enthusiasm" will doom her chances.

Here was Abrams' response, saying that she didn't think the "Trust Black Women" chant was a racial attack on Evans (which Abrams says she would have objected to had it been racial), while Abrams also appears to endorse disruption of Evans' speech. This is a disturbing lack of commitment on the part of Abrams to civil discourse, and should be a concern for Georgia voters even if one might like her policies on things like rural healthcare.

It's hard to imagine that MLK would have condoned disruption of other people's speeches. His technique was to let them talk -- and then use the language against them.

The biggest racists in this country are on the democrat side, and Stacy Abrams is one of the biggest racists of them all. God help GA if she gets elected.
