Georgia is a state that I know well.
My family is originally from Central Georgia. I have lots of relatives on the other side of the Chattahoochee River. My ancestors are buried there. I still travel frequently in the state. In my mind, the fate of Whites in Georgia is second in importance only to the Whites of Alabama. This is my home turf we are talking about here.
It was the invasion of Alabama and Georgia by illegal aliens that led to my own “political awakening” in 2001. This is why I got involved in the pro-White movement. The stakes are high.
King Roy vs. The Real Deal
It was thus particularly gratifying to see Congressman Nathan Deal defeat Roy Barnes in the Georgia gubernatorial election. For those who are unfamiliar with Deal, he is the Tom Tancredo of Georgia. While Deal was in Congress, he introduced H.R. 698, the Citizenship Reform Act, which would have abolished birthright citizenship for illegal aliens in the United States. This is a race that everyone involved in restrictionist politics was following very closely.
In contrast, Roy Barnes was the former Democratic Governor of Georgia. “King Roy” is infamous around here for gutting the Stars and Bars out of the Georgia state flag. That slap across the face to White voters cost him re-election in 2002 and led to the Republican ascendancy in Georgia state politics. It won him the John F. Kennedy “Profile in Courage” award. Barnes has been a hero to “progressives” across America ever since.
After leaving office, Roy Barnes remained a thorn in the side of Whites in Georgia. In 2005, Georgia passed a “Voter ID Law” (it was widely denounced at the time as a “Jim Crow law”) to discourage criminals and illegal aliens from voting in state elections.
“King Roy” litigated the Voter ID Law before the Georgia Supreme Court arguing that it was “unconstitutional.” The Georgia Supreme Court ruled against Barnes, but the Democratic Party of Georgia has repeatedly filed new lawsuits to challenge it on constitutional grounds. They still haven’t given up hope of reversing this small victory.
In this Georgia race, there was a clear and stark contrast between the “system politicians” who are running for office. In the “Red” corner, Nathan Deal was running whose debut campaign ad was a broadside against the Obama administration on immigration. In the “Blue” corner, his opponent Roy Barnes is widely despised as one of the worst enemies of White people in the South.
“Sue Us Too”: Standing Like a Stonewall
Nathan Deal, the victor in the Georgia gubernatorial election, has promised to sign Arizona-style immigration reform into law:
“I agree with the Arizona governor and Legislature that the federal government has failed miserably at protecting our borders and enacting sensible solutions that would protect our states, counties and cities from bearing the enormous costs associated with illegal immigration, from emergency room visits to public schools to the criminal justice system. As governor of Georgia, I’d work to pass and sign similar legislation.”
“We’re outraged that the Obama administration’s answer is to sue a state that’s trying to enforce the law. Well, I have a message for the president when I’m governor: You can sue us too, because in Georgia we believe in the rule of law and we believe in protecting taxpayers.”
In a debate before the Forsyth County GOP, Nathan Deal highlighted his record of fighting illegal immigration over the past fourteen years:
According to NumbersUSA, the choice in the Georgia gubernatorial election was between Deal a certified “true reformer” candidate and “King Roy” who released a campaign ad said he was “really listening” to voters this time around.
He even went so far to say that he would sign an Arizona-style immigration law himself. In 2001, Barnes told President Vincente Fox of Mexico that Georgia’s colleges and universities were authorized to waive out-of-state tuition for illegal aliens.
I’m glad that guy lost.
Red Revolution in Georgia
If Nov. 2 was a bad day for Democrats in the Heartland, it was a nightmare for the Democratic Party in Georgia. Republicans swept all statewide races: governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state, school superintendent, and the commissioners of insurance, agriculture and labor.
In the House races, Republicans won 7 out of 13 seats, including 1 pickup in Georgia 8 at the expense of Jim Marshall. The Democrat Sanford Bishop squeaked out a victory in Georgia 2. His opponent, Mike Keown, was a NumbersUSA “true reformer” candidate.
Heading into the 2010 midterms, Republicans had a 34-22 edge in the Georgia Senate and a 105-75 margin in the Georgia House. They retained control of both chambers of the state legislature. The “shellacking” of Georgia Democrats was so bad that the rats are jumping ship (three so far) in party switches. The final numbers in the state legislature still haven’t shaken out but Georgia Republicans are closing in on the supermajority necessary to amend the state constitution.
In a U.S. Senate race, Johnny Isakson A- defeated Mike Thurmond to win reelection. In Georgia 2, Austin Scott (true reformer) beat Jim Marshall, flipping a Democratic seat to the Republicans. In Georgia, Rob Woodall (true reformer) won an uncontested election.
The other Republican winners are ranked: Phil Gingrey, A+; Jack Kingston, A+; Paul Broun, A+; Tom Price, A+; Lynn Westmoreland, A; Tom Graves, B+. The Democratic winners are ranked: John Barrow, B+; Sanford Bishop, C; John Lewis, C-; David Scott, D; Hank Johnson, F.
There is a near perfect correlation between the number of Whites in a Georgia congressional district and their position on immigration. In North Georgia, there is an almost solid slate of anti-amnesty stalwarts. In Atlanta and South Georgia where blacks are more numerous the strength of incumbents tapers off in lock step with the non-White vote.
How do they do it?
I can’t find any exit polls to confirm my suspicion, but the “wave election” that swept across Georgia was undoubtedly driven by enormous White turnout and a depressed black electorate that suffered because Obama was not on the ticket. Whites in Georgia are also far more polarized than those in California and bloc vote like they do in Alabama.
Do we live in a “post-racial” society? Georgia state politics suggests otherwise.
Georgia and Illegal Immigration
There are an estimated 480,000 illegal aliens in Georgia. In fact, Georgia is neck and neck with Arizona (battling for sixth place) in terms of the number of illegals infesting the state. Those numbers have likely changed for the worst since Arizona passed SB 1070 this spring. 100,000 illegal aliens have fled Arizona this year alone.
The U.S. Census Bureau has shed light on the magnitude of the problem:
“The greatest percentage increases in the unauthorized population between 2000 and 2009 occurred in Georgia [115 percent], Nevada [55 percent], and Texas [54 percent],” the report noted.”
In other words, illegal aliens were invading Georgia at a faster rate in the last decade than the Southwestern border states. Ten years ago, there were 330,000 illegal aliens in Arizona while Georgia had only 220,000. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who is at all familiar with the formerly booming construction industry in the Atlanta suburbs.
In Georgia, the vanguardist “worse is better” program lost. As a result, Georgia now has a Governor in the mold of Tom Tancredo and Jan Brewer, two U.S. Senators against amnesty, a congressional delegation in favor of ending birthright citizenship and cutting legal immigration, and a state legislature with a solid restrictionist majority. “King Roy” is also looking for another job.
– An Arizona-style immigration law.
– New criminal penalties for employers of day laborers including enticing illegals to move to Georgia and harboring illegal aliens.
– A ban on driver’s licenses for illegal aliens.
– A ban on all illegal aliens from attending public colleges and universities.
Wouldn’t it have been better if the vanguardists had gotten their way and the Democrats had swept all the statewide and congressional elections? Wouldn’t Georgia have been better off with Roy Barnes for the next four years? Wouldn’t your state be better off if the Democrats were in charge of redrawing Georgia’s congressional districts in the wake of the 2010 census?
I think we all know the answer.
In celebration of “giving the bayonet” to “King Roy” and his mongrel army of blacks, illegal aliens, communists, homosexuals, and SWPL carpetbaggers in the Atlanta metropolitan area, I think I will play a little video for the edification of my friends over at Imagine2050:
Drive ’em to Washington!
