The Georgia gubernatorial race is heating up and is looking like it will be a tough and bitter one, primarily because of how dire the situation in the Peach State will be if Stacey Abrams, a far-left candidate, wins.
While both Brian Kemp and David Perdue, the two GOP candidates currently battling it out in the primary, are relatively uninspiring candidates, either would be far, far better for the state than Stacey Abrams.
That’s because she’s so far to the left as to make Biden look like a moderate, as could be seen during her recent appearance on MSNBC’s “Deadline”. Asked by MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace “What are you hearing from voters as you campaign around the state?”, here’s what Abrams had to say:
“They are deep[ly] concerned about Medicaid expansion and health care. We have seen recent hospitals shut down. It will happen again in a couple of days in the state of Georgia.
“It’s because we refused to accept Medicare expansion dollars that could help half a million people with access to health care but also bring $3.5 billion of taxpayer money back to our state and create 64,000 jobs. People are concerned about housing prices, both affordability and inventory. And they’re deeply concerned about children.”
Continuing and moving on from the topic of medial welfare to the culture war issues that currently dominate, Abrams accused Republicans of wanting to ban books and of perfecting “arms-length cruelty” against transgender kids, saying:
“Yesterday, the governor signed a swath of bills that are designed to lie to our children. My parents raised me to believe that a lie of omission is a lie, nonetheless.
“Anytime we start to tell children we are going to ban books that they can’t read, we are going to change the history that they can learn, then we are not doing our job. And what is most cruel —Brain Kemp has perfected arms-length cruelty — is that he has set up a commission that is designed to tell transgender children that they can not compete with their friends.
“He is doing everything he can to make our most fragile and vulnerable children feel even more lost at a time we should wrap them in our arms and tell them they belong. So my deep concern and the concern of so many is they want a governor that believes in them. My mission is to be a governor that serves all of them.”
Left unsaid was that her policy, allowing boys to compete against girls in women’s sports, would be just as cruel to those girls unable to ever win a competition because they were really competing against boys.
Stacey Abrams is far, far left. Though Kemp and Perdue aren’t great, one of the two needs to figure out how to beat Stacey Abrams for good and figure out how to stop the Peach State from turning into some hellish blue state like California or New York.
