Spencer dropped his pants and repeatedly used the N-word in the episode of “Who Is America?” Spencer had earlier threatened legal action to prevent the network from airing footage of him.
In a statement shortly after the episode aired, Ralston said Spencer’s actions and language in the video are “reprehensible.”
“Rep. Spencer has disgraced himself and should resign immediately,” Ralston said. “Georgia is better than this.”

I can guarantee you won’t be met with torches but something a lot more definitive. People in South Georgia are people of action, not drama.” He added that people who want the statues removed “will go missing in the Okefenokee,” referring to a swamp in Georgia.

I haven’t read the later books in the Southern Reach series, but I imagine if the phenomena had eventually extended past the swamp to interact with horses and wolves the result would have looked very much like this: All animals are beautiful. All animals are wonderful. All animals OH GOD OH NO. pic.twitter.com/O3SlSj48o0 — AC […]
