Kansas Lawmaker Denounces Black Protester, Suggests She ‘Go Back … Home’
In the wake of Trump all the masks fall off.
Seiwert, a Pretty Prairie Republican seeking re-election against Democrat Clifton Beck of Wichita, commented under a photograph of performer Denasia Lawrence and a headline that said, “I’m so sick of these anti-American blacks — f—- Black Lives Matter.” The actual post didn’t delete letters from the offending word.
“Go back to where you claim home,” Seiwert said on the Facebook thread. “So, if they don’t like it here, I believe that their freedom completely allows them to go wherever they believe is more fair and non-racist.”
In an interview Tuesday, Seiwert he didn’t view his remarks as racist. He said the intent was to stand up for the U.S. flag and to honor military service members who sacrificed for the country. People who don’t like their job get another or get divorced when in a bad relationship, he said. He said he didn’t see the derogatory headline about Black Lives Matter until after he had posted to Facebook. Most reaction to his comments are positive, he said.
