Apparently Secretary of State Brian Kemp is attacking another Conservative group called Citizens for Georgia’s Furture. Conservatives have to attack everyone. They trust no one. No wonder our government is dysfunctional. It is, not surprisingly, being run by Conservatives.
The latest evidence is a report from Greg Bluestein, AJC Political Insider, that Kemp assailed “secret donors and shady tactics” from Citizens for Georgia’s Future in a speech at the Cobb County GOP over the weekend. Kemp was upset that Citizens for Georgia’s Future said they ” could” launch ads to try to influence the race for the No. 2 spot in the May 22 primary.
Kemp is reported as having said:
- “That’s typical, pathetic, insider politics if you ask me,” ,
- “I fully expect” to be targeted by pro-Cagle forces in the next two weeks.
- He said the group will criticize his record as Georgia’s top elections official and question his experience in the private sector.
- “Cagle’s team will attempt to stop the bleeding he’s experiencing by lashing out at me,”
- “But you’re smarter than that.”
Just as a reminder we are filling up two big Kemp evidence buckets: 1) Kemp’s role in data breaches and disclosures, 2) The lawsuit claiming he lied to make $500,00.0.
Again, this is evidence that Conservatives just cannot govern. They don’t trust anyone.
In these critical times for our communities, one would think the GOP would be talking about how to solve the issues. Particularly how to solve the issues of divisiveness in our communities. Instead of walking the walk of improved civility they chose to attack in relatively mean ways. Using phrases like “secret donors and shady tactics” and “That’s typical, pathetic, insider politics if you ask me.”
It is normal political communication to criticize your opponent. But, Kemp, Cagle, and most Conservatives have raised criticism to a hateful art.
We know they don’t like government. This is evidence for a possible reason they hate government. Perhaps they hate everyone that is not them.
