BACKLASH: Georgia Democrat Lawmaker Blasts Party for Prioritizing Illegal Aliens Over Black Americans

In this episode of Welp, Who Didn’t See THIS Coming?…

As the Biden administration continues its hellbent importation of as many illegal aliens as it can get away with, a Georgia Democrat state legislator is calling BS. It seems that State Rep. Mesha Mainor (D-56) is fed up with her party prioritizing “every other minority” (translation: illegal aliens) over Black Americans.


It also seems that Rep. Mainor is dead-on right.

Mainor posted a video to Twitter on Saturday in which she laid out a convincing case:

I’m State Representative Mesha Mainor. And I recently found myself in the crosshairs of my Democratic Caucus. … I represent a solidly blue and highly diverse district. And I have never hesitated and will never hesitate to vote for the best interests of the communities I represent over party politics.

I support school choice, parent rights, and opportunities for children to thrive — especially those that are marginalized and that tend to fail in school. The Democrats at the Capitol took a hard position and demanded every Democrat vote against children and for the teachers union. I voted ‘yes’ for parents, and ‘yes’ for children — not failing schools.

Some of the schools I represent have a 3-percent reading proficiency, or children can’t do simple math. So I have a few colleagues upset with me to the point where they are giving away one thousand dollar checks to anyone who will run against me. I’m not apologizing because my colleagues don’t like how I vote. My community loves the fact that someone is finally sticking up for them, and holding these systems accountable.

Let’s be real. Parents do not want their child trapped in a failing school. And they aren’t frustrated with teachers; they’re upset with the elected leaders that put the teachers union and donors ahead of their constituents. If you listen to the people working so hard to push me out of office, you’d think I actually did something wrong. But in reality, they’re upset I didn’t do what they demanded, ‘like I said, little girl.’

But it’s ironic. I’ll say, every election year I hear ‘Black Lives Matter!’ But do they? I see every other minority being prioritized except black children living in poverty that can’t read. We’ll send a million dollars to the border for immigrant services. But black communities? Not even a shout-out. I’m sorry, I don’t agree with this. I’m not backing down. I’m actually just getting started.


One quick look at the video and you just know Rep. Mainor is not only dead on point; she also articulates a message very clearly, that no honest Democrat can deny — without lying. And therein lies the problem: Mesha Mainor is a clear and present danger to the Democrat Party.

While Mesha Mainor is right, she’s not the only Black American who’s fed up with the Biden administration and Democrat Party prioritizing illegal aliens ahead of all Americans, yet the reality is particularly stinging the Blacks who’ve believed the Democrat crock of crack for six decades, only to see their lives and communities fall further behind.

Here’s more, via Breitbart:

In Chicago, for example, blacks have organized to oppose their loss of power to immigrant voters, and to the placement of migrants in their neighborhood south of central Chicago.

In Washington D.C., where blacks comprise 50 percent of the population, council members are complaining about the growing cost of aiding poor migrants.

Many comments and polls show that many blacks oppose large-scale migration — even as they also support government aid to migrants and Latinos.


Mainor’s comments have garnered attention beyond Georgia State Legislature Democrats. D.A. King, a pro-American activist who founded the Dustin Inman Society to oppose illegal migration into the state, told Breitbart:

I’m surprised to hear any state-level politician speaking up for Americans over illegal aliens, especially so if it’s coming from a Democrat. I hope there are a lot of Republican legislators looking at that part of her statement because they need to speak up as well.

Here in Georgia, most of the state level politicians, including the governor, don’t speak up against illegal immigration because they’re afraid of the retribution from the special interests led by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce.

The retribution for any politician under the Gold Dome here in Georgia is delivered in the form of ‘We will find someone to run against you in the next primary if you don’t do what we have ordered.’

Exactly. As Mesha Mainor said in the video, “Let’s be real.”

The Democrat Party has long viewed America’s Blacks and other minorities as simply guaranteed votes. Black Americans — conservatives, in particular — who refuse to live on the Democrat plantation are to be discredited, dismissed, and ultimately destroyed if they speak out and expose the party’s narrative for exactly what it is: pandering and exploitation.

While Black America appears to be slowly waking up to this reality, Hispanic American voters are already well on their way. As I reported in December 2021, Hispanics have been abandoning the Democrat Party in droves since 2018.


A [then]recent poll conducted byRMG Research, Inc., showed Hispanic voters favor generic Republicans over the generic Democrats by two points. Forty-eight percent of the Hispanic voters would support a generic Republican on the ballot if the election were held today, compared to the 46 percent who support the generic Democrat. Four percent said they “would not vote,” while only two percent said they were “not sure.” However, this is a 42-point swing from 2018.

The two-point margin was insignificant, but the 42-point swing in just three years was monumental.

Democrats would be wise to ask themselves some very hard questions as they continue in their intentional mission to destroy America as we know it, but will they? Hell no, they won’t — all one needs to do is listen to Mesha Mainor for the reasons.

Anyway, as the shift in Democrat priorities in favor of illegal aliens continues, is the growing disaffection among Black Americans a product of the law of unintended consequences? Hell no, it’s not.

On the contrary, it’s a quintessential example of how the Democrat Party has mistreated Black Americans for six decades: pandering hollow promise after hollow promise, blatant exploitation, and taking the Black vote for granted in every election. It’s also a clear example of how more and more Black Americans are finally wising up and saying: “We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore.”

Incidentally, if you’re thinking that Mesha Mainor just might have a future in politics beyond the state level, I beat you to it. That is if the Democrat Party doesn’t destroy Mainor and her truth before she gets a chance.
