Michael Williams, a Georgia state senator running for governor, has tried to boost his 3 percent approval rating by being as demonstrably racist as possible.
To that end, he’s been parking his so-called ‘deportation bus’ outside of Cracker Barrel restaurants in sanctuary cities around the state. The bus is adorned with mis-spelled sentiments like “FILL THIS BUS WITH ILLEGALS” and “DANGER! MURDERERS, RAPISTS, KIDNAPPERS, CHILD MOLESTORS [sic], AND OTHER CRIMINALS ON BOARD.”
The racist political ploy has drawn protesters bearing signs like “Bus yo ass out of here” and “No human being is illegal.” On his website, Williams bills himself as a “Fearless conservative Pro-Trump conservative Republican for Governor. MORE RESULTS. LESS TALK. NO EXCUSES!”
In a statement, Cracker Barrel made it clear the company rejects the Republican’s message of hate, the Daily Beast reports. “We are not sponsoring this event or supporting Mr. Williams’ campaign stops in any way, and per our company policy, we will not allow him—or any political candidate—to host an event on Cracker Barrel’s property,” they said. “We take pride in showing our communities and our country that the hospitality we practice is indeed welcoming and inclusive to all.”
