Enjoy your only term, dear

A newly-elected Tennessee state lawmaker is apologizing after a video surfaced of the Democrat calling her state “racist” and claiming that most of its residents who “voted Republican are uneducated.”

The eyebrow-raising comments from London Lamar, a Democrat who is set to take office in January after running uncontested in the state’s House District 91 in the Memphis area, were made last week in a Facebook Live video posted the morning after the midterm elections.

“Let’s just call a spade a spade. Tennessee is racist. Period,” Lamar says in the video, which has been uploaded on several news websites after being taken off Facebook.

“Most of the Tennesseans who voted Republican are uneducated. So, they don’t even know that they showed up to the polls to vote against their own interest,” Lamar says at another point in the video. “They literally voted on color lines.”

    Uhhh, I’m pretty sure its the Dims that are uneducated and vote along color and religious lines.
    (I;m thinking slums, blacks and jewish folks here- not that theres many jewish folks in prominence in TN).

    • Bacon says:

      Wrong. There are at least 20,000 Jews living in Tennessee, not including college students and not including those uninvolved in the Jewish community and therefore uncounted.

      A 15-second search shows at least 20 active synagogues in 8 different cities and towns in Tennessee. And these days, the majority of American Jews are not members of a synagogue.

    Well, Memphis.

    Now, if you or I said “a spade is a spade…”, their hair would be on fire.

      Like she wants to get re-elected. That requires work. Better to just sit back and collect that nice congressional pension.

    From London Lamar’s own webpage:

    Dear Friends,
    I’m a proud resident of Tennessee’s 91st House District. The 91st District has remained the conscious of the legislature; fighting for our families and for our future.

    The “conscious”? So much for the value of a PoliSci degree from St Mary’s College (in Notre Dame, IN). Then again, I’ve never heard her speak. Perhaps she speaks in dialect and “conscience” and “conscious” sound the same in her patois.

    only term
    I doubt it. If anything this will make her more popular in that district.

  6. Chris Mallory says:

    She was elected with 100% of the vote since she did not have an opponent in the general election.
    Looks like the 91st is a South Memphis district. I imagine white faces are seldom seen.
    She will have a long career.

  7. Just a Chemist says:

    Meh… just another racist pile of shit. And too stupid to actually get along with anyone in the state senate… her single term will be marked out by her total impotence, and they she will fade away.

  8. Bear says:

    That’s Memphis, 63% Black (and probably 99.99% in 91). She’ll only be one-term if she gets arrested, too. Which reminds me: Did they run out of Fords to fuck shit up?

  9. Elmo says:

    The hypocrisy is mind boggling. And that’s a completely separate issue from her blatant racism. She’ll make a great Democrat politician.

    I weep for my country.

    One term? If Tennessee doesn’t start a recall before this bigot is in office don’t expect me to feel bad.

    • crazyeighter says:

      She’s Triple Immune: Woman, Black, Democrat

    • Chris Mallory says:

      Tennessee only allows recall of local officials in very limited circumstances. State level elected officials are not subject to recall.

      Only 19 states allow recall of (some) state level politicians.

      • ChuckN says:

        So? From Maine to Florida to California communist democrats are actively and openly trying to steal every election they can. Do you think for a second that if the parties were reversed the dems wouldn’t be shouting for a recall and forming mobs. It’s no use playing by the rules when your the only one doing so. Time to start using their own tactics against them.

    Knee grows are the most racist people, as a whole, there are.

  12. Dirk Furugusun says:

    She just said what all LIE-berals believe!!!! She will probably get an award for being so brave to speak “the truth”!!!!!!! As long as she runs in that district, she has a life-time job!!!!!

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
