During a town hall meeting on Saturday, Congressman Al Green played recordings of threatening voicemail messages left for him after he demanded the impeachment of President Donald Trump on the House floor earlier this week.
“You’ll be hanging from a tree,” one caller said.*
The calls use graphic racial slurs, some calling Green the n-word. “You ain’t going to impeach anybody. Try it and we will lynch all of you,” said a caller.
Whatever your stance on impeachment (It is either/or for me—I voted for neither candidate in the election)--------can we AT LEAST get past these despicable comments?
So YES, Virginia, there IS still RACISM left in this country.
