Rick Tyler, An independent candidate for Tennessee's 3rd congressional district has paid for at least two billboards in Polk County, one of them
plastered with beatific Caucasian faces with "Make America White Again" emblazoned in large letters, the other depicting the White House ringed
with confederate flags with the slogan "I have a dream" on it. Twelve hours later the signs were taken down, most likely by the billboard owners.
When pressed about the message Rick Tyler responded that he has no hatred for people of color, he just wants america to go back to ""1960s, Ozzie
and Harriet, Leave it to Beaver time when there were no break-ins; no violent crime; no mass immigration." "I believe the majority of people like
it" He goes on to say.
Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Ryan Haynes stated "There's no room for this type of hateful display in our political discourse. Racism should
be rejected in all its heinous forms in the Third Congressional District and around the country." Congressman Chuck Fleischmann also gave a
statement today "I totally and unequivocally condemn the billboard and Mr. Tyler’s message and will vigorously fight any form of racism in the 3rd
district of Tennessee or anywhere else in the nation." Link
He seems to think what America needs is to go back to the way it was in the 60s, make white people the super-majority in America again... this is the
same sort of speak that preceded programs of ethnic cleansing in other countries. Man, what a piece of work.
What agenda? That this delusional wanna-be Congress critter has a right to say this stuff? DB is correct, he does, just like we have a right, a duty
even, to point out his delusions, and urge people not to vote for him.
That agenda??? What would you rather be said/done about him?
I'm just going to point out that this was from last year, and he obviously didn't win. Just amazed that someone spent the money and had the balls to
do something this egregiously contemptible publicly.
I'm worried this overt white-supremacy is getting more normalized.
