MISSISSIPPI: GOP Lawmaker Calls For Lynching Public Officials Who Vote To Remove Confederate Monuments

Jackson’s ABC affiliate reports:

Mississippi State Representative Karl Oliver’s Facebook page is getting a lot of attention after a recent post. It’s regarding the recent removal of Confederate monuments in Louisiana. The Republican represents District District 46 – Carroll, Grenada, Leflore, Montgomery, Webster counties.

“The destruction of these monuments, erected in the loving memory of our family and fellow Southern Americans, is both heinous and horrific. If the, and I use this term extremely loosely, “leadership” of Louisiana wishes to, in a Nazi-ish fashion, burn books or destroy historical monuments of OUR HISTORY, they should be LYNCHED! Let it be known, I will do all in my power to prevent this from happening in our State.”

The post remains on Oliver’s Facebook page at this writing.
