Tennessee County Commissioner Gives Official Elderly Bigoted White Male Trump Voter State of the Union Speech at Public Meeting-

County Official Rants About A ‘Queer’ Running For President, Loss Of White Men’s Rights

A county commissioner in Tennessee launched a tirade against the Democratic presidential field and the general state of white men in America on Monday during a debate about guns.
Warren Hurst, who sits on the Sevier County Commission, spoke up during a discussion on an upcoming vote to become a gun sanctuary city. He told the crowd, many of whom were holding little American flags, that it was time to “wake up people.”

“We got a queer running for president if that ain’t about as ugly as you can get,” he said, in comments captured by Knoxville-based station WVLT. “Look what we got running for president in the Democratic Party. We can go over here to Hoss’ jail [the Sevier County sheriff] and get better people out of there than those running for [the] Democratic [nomination] to be president of the United States.” (this sounds like the authentic frontier gibberish the movie Blazing Saddles talked about, and of course the sheriff's name is Hoss. perfect!!)

“I’m not prejudiced, but by golly, a white male in this country has very few rights and they’re getting took more every day.”
(Amen, brother. They're getting took more every day!!)


In a follow-up interview with WVLT, he stood by his comments and noted that he has some Black friends. HuffPost repeatedly attempted to contact Hurst, but his line was busy. (must have been practicing his banjo playing while squealing like a pig)

Well, he, like everybody is entitled to his opinion, but since he's in Tenn, I don't care.

I find confronting bigotry with bigotry not a great way to be....
making fun of bigots is not bigotry, it is better than punching them out, which they deserve. so, according to you, bigots who claim people who do not discriminate against gays, who would vote for democrats or perhaps even be a democrat, are worse than people in jail- do not deserve to be ridiculed? how is it bigotry to make fun of all people who are bigoted or racist, or to actively dislike if not hate them? that is based on THEIR COMMENTS AND ACTIONS, not on what race, gender, sexual orientation or religion they may be but on their own sickening comments and actions.

you confuse bigotry with making a reasonable decision. that is like saying it is wrong to hate all child rapers.

Maybe if they went and got themselves an education and learned about proper grammar and sentence structure, they wouldn't be getting stuff took from them so damn much, eh? :D
