|Another bigot elected to office! Not afraid to go rogue when the time is right!|
This state legislator wrote his frustrations of social liberalism. One in particular is the integration of public schools
Jon Hubbard, a Republican member of the Arkansas House of Representatives, has written a new book in which he says slavery was "a blessing" for African-Americans, among other questionable statements.
Hubbard, a first term Republican from Jonesboro, Ark., makes a series of racially charged statements in the self-published book, including saying that integration of schools is hurting white students, that African slaves had better lives under slavery than in Africa, that blacks are not contributing to society, and that a situation is developing the United States which is similar to that of Nazi Germany.
The questionable statements in Hubbard's book, "Letters to the Editor: Confessions of a Frustrated Conservative," were first reported by Arkansas Times and TalkBusiness.net.
An Air Force veteran, Hubbard sells insurance in Arkansas and Missouri. He serves on several legislative committees, including ones dealing with issues related to aging, insurance, telecommunications, and waterways and aeronautics policy.
On his campaign website, Hubbard says he will defend Christianity as a state lawmaker.
"And perhaps the most important pledge I can make to the people of District 58, the citizens of Arkansas, and to myself, is to do whatever I can to defend, protect, and preserve our Christian heritage," Hubbard says on his website. "Regardless of one’s religious beliefs, if we as a nation continue to turn away from those Christian principles and values upon which this great nation was founded, we will have truly lost everything worth saving!"
Hubbard has a history of taking conservative stances in the legislature. In June, he called for the University of Arkansas to be audited to see if tax money had been spent on a panel discussion about undocumented immigrants. In February, he asked the state Department of Health to implement a policy that would require birth certificates be produced by anyone seeking non-emergency medical care in a hospital in order to prove their citizenship.
Instead of getting angry at these bigoted politicians here's what you should do!
Put President Barack Obama into the White House!
Don't let these conservative agitators like this politician, Glenn Beck, Matt Drudge, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and Fox News win this election.
Mitt Romney and the Republicans are going to muddy the water and it's going to get worse before the election.
Fight back against the hate machine by voting!
