Incoming Tennessee State House Rep London Lamar Busted Calling Residents ‘Racist’, GOP Voters ‘Uneducated’

In a racist rant, a Tennessee Democrat newly elected to the House of Representatives has said the state is racist and most residents who voted Republican are uneducated.

Democrat London Lamar, who ran uncontested in House District 91, posted the now deleted video last week.

“Tennessee’s racist. Period. Period. Like, Tennessee is racist.”

“Most of the Tennesseeans who voted Republican are uneducated.”

“White men voted Republican over — well over 60 or 70 percent, so obviously that’s a particular base of people who believe in superiority.”

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.”

On Monday, Lamar, in a Facebook post addressing the footage, described it as a “statistical analysis of the midterm elections based on my numerous years of political experience.” More

There you have it, folks. The real racists. The left loves to gaslight their opponents. She has no proof to back up her ludicrous claims. People vote for the candidates that align with their values, conflating that with race and pulling the race card is not doing the Democrats any favors.
