Jon Hubbard, Arkansas House of Representatives: Resign for Your Racist and Ignorant Comments

    1. Jen Brown
    2. Petition by

      Jen Brown

      Seattle, WA

Jon Hubbard, R-75, states in his book "Letters to the Editor: Confessions of a Frustrated Conservative" that slavery, and all the systematic physical torture, rape, unpaid servitude, enforced ignorance, separation of family, and being sold like cattle that it entails, was actually a "blessing in disguise" for African-Americans. He then states that the racial integration of young people is bad for education, African-Americans do not contribute to society, and compares the rise of Christianity in the U.S. to Hitler's rise to power (in a positive way!) Somebody who holds this reactionary, racist views that are a complete denial of human rights and U.S. history has no place in our government. Join with me in calling Jon Hubbard to resign.

      I take statements like those from an elected official with influence over the laws of this country as a threat to both my safety and the safety of my family. If he feels slavey was ok then than as far as i'm concerned he feels it would be ok now. He needs to step down now.

      With such blatant hatred and ignorant remarks of the black race this man should never be allowed to sit in any office of any government. He claims to be a Christian, tell him to read his Bible, the last time I checked, God was and is no respecter of persons. He needs to resign QUICKLY...

      There is no place for an elected official in government with views such as yours. Please resign your position.
