Georgia 10th District Congressional candidate Jody Hice seems to be making national news yet again. Only this time, it’s the New York Times. In an article about a potential rightward shift for the GOP in the US House of Representatives, the author paints Jody Hice as possibly “even more conservative” than outgoing Congressman Paul Broun. The following is an excerpt from the article:
Then there is Mr. Hice. Having once called evolution a lie from “the pit of hell,” Mr. Broun, the departing representative from Georgia, would be hard to beat on the inflammatory front. But Mr. Hice has a record. He once said of women in politics, “If the woman’s within the authority of her husband, I don’t see a problem. ”
He compared the recent appearance of red “blood moons” to prophecies that preceded the expulsion of the Jews from Spain, Israeli statehood and the Arab-Israeli War of 1967. In a satirical book, he claimed he had found a homosexual agenda to “sodomize your sons” by seducing them “in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms.”
The article also makes mention of Hice’s former comments regarding Muslims not deserving 1st Amendment Constitutional protections, something that Eric has previously reported here.
Just to set the record straight, there needs to be a distinction in national media between “Conservatives” and outright “Xenophobes”. The sad truth is that GOP candidates and elected officials such as Jody Hice only do the conservative cause more harm than good by playing right into the liberal media’s allegations that Republicans hate everything and everyone who is not an old, rich, white, Christian male.
