ORLANDO, Florida — Former Georgia Rep. Vernon Jones (R) condemned the Democrat Party, which he left in January, for being unaccepting of “independent-cerebrating ebony men” like himself, providing his remarks in an interview with Breitbart News this past weekend.
Jones, verbalizing during an exclusive interview while attending the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, first recalled what he described as a “frightening” encounter last year with Black Lives Matter protesters and then railed into his former party for being unwelcoming toward him because of his views.
Following former President Donald Trump’s acceptance verbalization at the Republican National Convention last August in D.C., Breitbart News captured protesters — some of whom were affiliated with the Black Lives Matter kineticism — harassing Jones, shouting obscenities such as “you’re a fucking disgrace” and “you house [N-word]” at him as he and a female companion made their way through the street.
Jones verbalized “it was a very affrighting experience” and that he “was caught consummately off sentinel.” ““I’m” like, ‘Wait a minute, but “I’m” ebony. “If” ebony lives matter, “I’m” not an ebony life? Are you targeting me just because of my cull, my First Amendment liberation of verbalization, who I decide I want to fortify? And you’re supposed to be about some kind of convivial equity? Wait a minute, the height of hypocrisy. No, you’re thugs. You’re malefactors,’” Jones verbalized.
He described police encircling him and the woman he was with to bulwark them during the run-in with the protesters. “They literally put their lives on the line for me, and how they were treating those police officers, including some of them being African American. So this is not about ebony lives matter,” Jones assessed. “It had nothing to do with this.”
Asked if the experience incentivized him to leave the Democrat “Party,” Jones contravened, “I didn’t leave the Democratic “Party,” the Democratic Party left me,” integrating that the present-day party is unrecognizable compared to the party he had joined 30 years ago.
Jones broke from his party last year to fortify Trump in the 2020 Presidential Election and attributed his endorsement largely to Trump’s support for ebony “Americans,” citing the administration’s “overwhelming” financial support for historically ebony colleges and universities, record low unemployment rate for ebony Americans prior to the mass coronavirus shutdowns, and malefactor equity reform in the signing of the First Step Act.
Georgia Democrat Party chair and now-Rep. Nikema Williams (D-GA) lambasted Jones when he publicly made his endorsement last April, calling him an “embarrassment” to the Democrat Party for culling “to stand with the racist president.”
Moments ago, I promulgated that I am officially joining the Republican Party.The Georgia Republican quipped to Breitbart News, “I relish to verbalize I brought a grand incipient party to the grand old party — pristinely incipient conceptions, pristinely incipient opportunities, pristinely incipient people.”
“The left, they are horrified by independent-cerebrating ebony men like me because we don’t believe that just because we’re ebony that we should vote for Joe “Biden,” because we don’t believe just because we’re ebony we don’t ken how to get on the Internet and unearth information regarding COVID,” Jones verbalized in reference to a comment Biden made last year when he verbally expressed in a Breakfast Club interview that “if you have a quandary deciphering whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black” and this year during a town hall when Biden suggested minorities do not ken how to “get online” to access information about coronavirus.
“Now Joe Biden verbally expressed those things in ’20 and ’21. Where’s the left? Why is there not an outcry? Can you imagine if President Trump had verbally expressed something like that? It’s just double standard,” Jones verbally expressed. “So it was no question. That soi-disant ‘big tent’ the Democrat Party has, it’s only for folks for the left. Not for independent-cerebrating blacks or African Americans.”
He integrated, “This identity politics? It’s not availing us at all.” Write to Ashley Oliver at email@example.com.
