Southern Strategy is alive & well in Oklahoma but in a bizarre form.
- Nationwide voter suppression aimed at black & other minority communities to prevent the nation’s first black president
from winning re-election;
- Reports of Oklahoma purging democrat voters from the voter rolls ;
- White Oklahoma republican legislators pushed for affirmative action to be abolished in the state that is
known for its hatred for a black US President;
- Oklahoma Republicans had this affirmative action question to be placed on the ballot to be voted on in the
presidential election knowing that a black president’s name would also be named on the same ballot;
- Racist vitriol spewed by Oklahoma GOP politicians which fueled hate rhetoric to their constituents at conventions &
political gatherings against a black president;
Then these white republicans in Oklahoma with venomous hatred for this black man in the White House decided to show the depth of it by executing another black man on
Yes, they did this! While black folks in Oklahoma were scrambling to get to the voting polls on ELECTION DAY to vote for a black man to remain as president, the state of Oklahoma was executing another black on the same day. In my opinion this was a twisted message the white republicans of Oklahoma was sending to the black people in the state.
When they say racism is skin deep disease to the bone, they aint lying, cause these white republican politicians in Oklahoma have got it bad. Real bad. How low can they go?
By the way, the blood RED state of Oklahoma at 6:05 pm on November 6, 2012 – ELECTION DAY, executed a mentally ill black man named Garry Allen. At that same time – 6:05 pm, blacks folks were still standing in long lines at voting polls in Carter County & other Oklahoma counties trying desperately to vote for another black man to be re-elected President of the United States & that man’s name is Barack Obama. It was reported that the last words of inmate Garry Allen at the ELECTION DAY EXECUTION was his prediction of an Obama win to the presidency.
The following video was recorded at the Oklahoma Death Penalty Discussion/Session held at the NAACP Oklahoma state convention in Oklahoma City on 11/10/2012.
(R-OK) Steve Harrison, sitting councilman is running for Mayor of McAlester, Oklahoma. He feels council members should at least make a good impression while sitting on bench at meetings for the sake of public appearance. He said his rival John Brown (another councilman) shows up wearing shorts. But when Harrison shows up to city council, he dresses up in suit & tie.
Harrison also answered questions about the McAlester landfill that the council had previously imposed a restriction on its use. Harrison explained that the landfill was full & that the city had to comply w/DEQ rules.
About the matter of McAlester council passing city law that conflicted w/state law in regulating the sale of over the counter cold medicine, Harrison said that the city council rescinded their ruling after its passing due to ruling from Oklahoma Attorney General. The initial reason given by the council in trying to regulate the cold medicine was to clamp down on meth labs. But Oklahoma attorney general Pruitt said towns can’t regulate sale of cold pills.
Steve Harrison, who is a republican, is currently a city councilman for ward 2 McAlester, OK. He seeks to win the office of Mayor, as the outgoing mayor – Kevin Priddle, is retiring. John Browne, a democrat is also running for mayor.
Election for the mayor race is super Tuesday – March 6, 2012.
