Alabama State Rep. Joe Mitchell (D-Mobile) is evidently not a fan at all of voters who back Second Amendment rights. On January 27, Eddie Maxwell sent a mass email to state legislators asking them to resist efforts to curb gun rights. State Rep. Mitchell’s response came from his official email address, and was highly unusual for an elected representative.

Mitchell responded from his public, ALHouse.gov email account at 11:59 p.m., telling Maxwell: “Your folk never used all this sheit (sic) to protect my folk from your slave-holding, murdering, adulterous, baby-raping, incestuous, snaggle-toothed, backward-a**ed, inbreed (sic), imported criminal-minded kin folk.”

Maxwell was taken aback by Rep. Mitchell’s response. The full email chain is at the link.

Setting the racism and profane typo aside, the fact is, Rep. Mitchell has his history wrong. Gun control laws in the the Jim Crow-era south were primarily used by Democrats as a means to keep black Americans from being able to defend themselves.

Southern Democrats have been getting into quite a bit of trouble over the past week. Palm Beach County (FL) Democratic Party vice-chairman Deandre Poole is currently under investigation for having a class that he teaches at Florida Atlantic University stomp on a piece of paper with the name “Jesus” written on it. The Palm Beach County Democratic Party and the Florida Democratic Party have remained silent on the controversy.

Well, I, for one...am completely in favor of a thorough background check system that fully investigates a leftist before he is given the freedom to go around shooting off his gums.

The US Congress aside, ville, corrupt state legislators abound in both parties. Don't get cocky just because today's "Name That Party" honoree has been outed. "What difference does it make, anyway!"

I disagree that the main point is the upside-down history.

The main point is that this email accurately reflects the elected leader's true feelings about an entire race of people.

The typos probably are not typos.
And the problems is all there.
If you can't even write correctly you probably haven't educated yourself thoroughly.
And you remain a prisoner of the true racists who use you as a mere tool.

"The Palm Beach County Democratic Party and the Florida Democratic Party have remained silent on the controversy."

Which tells me that Florida Fascist-Democrats do hate Christianity. And as the DNC hasn't called for an investigation, the national Fascist-Democratic party hats Christianity too.

The black Left: making friends one white person at a time. That's aside from them being the last hold out of institutional racism in America. The black Left is its own explanation for failure, and why so many people who might otherwise be neutral are coming to despise them.

But according to Adria Richards, blacks "CANNOT" be racists.
