Think Paul Broun was insane? Meet Jody Hice( R) nominee for US congress.

Last edited Fri Jul 25, 2014, 06:29 PM - Edit history (1)

"In his seven years in Congress, Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) distinguished himself by calling biology "lies straight from the pit of hell" and accusing President Barack Obama of establishing a secret national police force to push a Marxist dictatorship. But the man who may replace Broun in Washington could outdo him.

In a 2012 book, that candidate—pastor and talk radio host Jody Hice—alleges the gay community has a secret plot to recruit and sodomize children. In It's Now or Never: A Call to Reclaim America, Hice also asserts that supporters of abortion rights are worse than Hitler and compares gay relationships to bestiality and incest. He proposes that Muslims be stripped of their First Amendment rights.

On Tuesday, Hice clinched a spot in the runoff to replace Broun, who declined to run for re-election in order to run for Senate. Hice will face businessman Michael Collins in the July 22 runoff. In a district that gave 62 percent of the vote to Mitt Romney two years ago, Hice, the leading vote-getter in the first round of balloting, stands a good chance of being elected to Congress."

Seeing as how they voted for him...

4. You are being kind - Batshit crazy is an understatement

And to think that both these wackos represented, and likely will represent, one of the most progressive cities in Georgia, Athens. My parents live over there, and they can hardly stand it. Said the university folks couldn't even talk to Broun he was so nuts. Had to reach out to other reps outside their district.

I rotate between amused melancholy and venomous anger at the whole situation.

5. yea I'm in Grad school at UGA in Athens.

Damn State Republicans gerrymandered the districts to dilute the democratic vote here, split Athens in half. into districts 9 and 10.

I got a bad feeling this hatemongering wack job will win. Just look at how much money he has compared to his opponent,- Hice's raised $567,918 compared to $29,220 for Ken Dious (D) opponent.

7. I am here too. GOTV is the only way to defeat Hice.

GOP gerrymandering & redistricting has been very successful here.

I am going to work to GOTV in Athens.
