Stacey Abramsís Burning of Georgia Flag With Confederate Symbol Surfaces on Eve of Debate
NTY ^ | Oct. 22, 2018 | Richard Fausset

At a protest on the steps of the Georgia Capitol in 1992, Stacey Abrams, now the Democratic candidate for governor, joined in the burning of the state flag, which at the time incorporated the Confederate battle flag design and was viewed by many as a lingering symbol of white supremacy.

Ms. Abrams’s role in the protest, which took place around the end of her freshman year at Spelman College in Atlanta, has begun to emerge on social media on the eve of her first debate Tuesday with her Republican opponent, Secretary of State Brian Kemp. Mr. Kemp and his allies have sought to portray her as “too extreme for Georgia.”

If elected, Ms. Abrams, 44, would become the first black female governor in the nation. In August 2017, after the violent white supremacist demonstrations in Charlottesville, Va., Ms. Abrams injected the issue of Confederate memorials into the governor’s race by calling for the removal of the giant Confederate carving on Stone Mountain, a granite outcropping east of Atlanta, noting, correctly, its ties to white supremacy and the revival of the Ku Klux Klan.

Yeah let’s destroy history and art. And could the “news” article be any more biased?

Many lies in this paragraph, even by NYT standards.

30 years ago this would have spelled her doom, but so many Georgians are northeast transplants or illegal aliens, I’m not sure this hurts her that much.

“a lingering symbol of white supremacy.”

The NYT is viewed as a lingering symbol of Nazi Germany by 87% of Americans, according to a CNN poll.

This comes as no surprise. The rest of the state will have to outvote all the transplants in Atlanta - that’s nothing new and they almost always do.

Don't you just love the total abandonment of any journalistic ethics, shown below?

calling for the removal of the giant Confederate carving on Stone Mountain, a granite outcropping east of Atlanta, noting, correctly, its ties to white supremacy and the revival of the Ku Klux Klan.

I know. I know. We expect no less. But it is still breathtaking.

And let’s not forget.....

When Eric Holder advocated kicking Republicans ......he was at a campaign event for Stacey Abrams.

Holder’s advocating violence against Republicans, was greeted with laughter and applause by Abram’s supporters.

I recall in 2016 the dems were making a lot of noise that they would win Georgia. On election night, Trump was way, way ahead in Georgia but the networks all refused to call it for him. I think they called PA and Michigan and Trump was leading by like 10 points in Georgia and they were still saying "too close to call yet". I think they all knew that the dems had been building some big fraud machine in Georgia and they were waiting for it to kick in rather than calling it for him. But Trump won it so handily that it didn't come into play.

I think Georgia and Texas are the same. The dems crow in every election "this is the one! We flip it!" and they really believe it in spite of every bit of history. It tells me they think they have a fraud advantage. Thankfully so far, not good enough dems.
