Georgia Governor’s Race Not Over Yet as Dem Refuses to Concede

Stacy Abrams is making it very difficult for Georgians to move forward on Wednesday.

The main story of the American midterm elections of 2018 has been written, and it goes a little something like this:

Democrats predictably snagged the House while republicans kept the Senate, meaning that Donald Trump will have some uphill battles to face in doing forward with his stated agenda.

But not every storyline from Tuesday has been wrapped up neatly with a bow.  Take Georgia’s gubernatorial contest for instance, where democratic nominee Stacy Abrams has declined to concede, believing that the election will be subject to a December runoff.

Trending: Trump Gives HILARIOUS Response When Asked About Socialist Ocasio-Cortez (Watch)

Early Wednesday morning, Georgia’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams refused to concede to Republican challenger Brian Kemp.

“Votes remain to be counted. There are voices that were waiting to be heard,” Abrams said before a crowd of supporters. “Across our state, folks are opening up the dreams of voters in absentee ballots and we believe our chance for a stronger Georgia is just within reach. But we cannot seize it until all voices are heard. And I promise you tonight we are going to make sure that every vote is counted – every single vote.”

Just how far off is Abrams?

As Abrams gave her speech, NBC News reported on screen that with 99% of precincts reporting, the gubernatorial hopeful was down by 115,362 votes, or approximately 3%.

According to The New York Times, with 100% of precincts reporting as of publication, Abrams still trails Kemp by 94,468 votes, or approximately 2.5%.

Georgia state law dictates that if no candidate receives a majority of votes, the top two candidates enter into a runoff election. According to NBC News, such a runoff would take place on December 4.

Abrams’ opponent Brian Kemp is the current Secretary of State in the state of Georgia, with his office being responsible for electoral oversight in The Peach State.  This fact has added an unnecessary amount of drama to the proceedings, with Abrams doing little to shore up voter confidence in Kemp’s staff to remain neutral in the election.

THIS is the type of person Democrats voted into office. THIS is who they want!

Michigan freshman Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is making quite the name for herself.

She’s the one who refered to President Trump as a “motherf*****.”

Now Tlaib, a Democrat, has been pictured with a Palestinian activist who hates Jews and praises Hezbollah.

His name is Abbas Hamideh.

Check it…

From Daily Mail:

Michigan first-term Rep. Rashida Tlaib has been pictured with a Palestinian activist who has praised Hezbollah and called Jews ‘Zionist terrorists.’

Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American congresswoman, drew headlines the day she was sworn in after she was videotaped an evening event saying it was time to ‘impeach the motherf*****,’ in a crude comment referencing President Trump.

The line was called out by Republican and Democratic leaders, but Tlaib didn’t apologize.

Apologize? Why apologize?

Facepalm.

More of Hamideh’s tweets:

The people who voted Tlaib into office obviously don’t understand that Israel is one of America’s greatest allies.

They probably don’t even care that Rashida was seen draped in the Palestinian flag after learning she won her election.

Democrat Rashida Tlaib danced wearing the Palestinian flag at a victory party in Tuesday evening, after she won a largely uncontested race for the open seat in Michigan’s heavily Democratic 13th congressional district.

Tlaib: “A lot of my strength comes from being Palestinian.”

Tlaib and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) are the first two female Muslims elected to Congress.

The first elected Muslim was Keith Ellison, who is now attorney general of Minnesota despite being accused of sexual harassment by an ex-girlfriend.

On their first day in office, Tlaib and Omar gleefully posed for pictures with radical activist and anti-Semite, Linda Sarsour.

From Daily Wire:

Far-left Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) embraced anti-Semite and alleged Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer Linda Sarsour this week on their first day in Congress.

Sarsour wants people to stop “humanizing” Jews.

From Daily Wire:

Far-left Islamic activist Linda Sarsour made strong anti-Semitic remarks during a speech this month at the annual Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention in Houston, Texas — calling for the dehumanization of Israelis.

Sarsour: “So when we start debating in the Muslim community about Palestine, it tells me a lot about you and about the type of faith that you have in your heart. If you’re on the side of the oppressor, or you’re defending the oppressor, or you’re actually trying to humanize the oppressor, then that’s a problem sisters and brothers, and we got to be able to say: That is not the position of the Muslim American community.

Sarsour is rumored to be a Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer, as evidenced by the tweet below:

The founder of the Women’s March, Teresa Shook, is calling on Sarsour to step down for her anti-Semitic and homophobic remarks.

“As Founder of the Women’s March, my original vision and intent was to show the capacity of human beings to stand in solidarity and love against the hateful rhetoric that had become a part of the political landscape in the U.S. and around the world. I wanted us to prove that the majority of us are decent people who want a world that is fair, just and inclusive of Women and All people. We proved that on January 21, 2017 (and in the U.S. this past midterm with a diverse electorate).

Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez of Women’s March, Inc. have steered the Movement away from its true course. I have waited, hoping they would right the ship. But they have not. In opposition to our Unity Principles, they have allowed anti-Semitism, anti- LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs. I call for the current Co-Chairs to step down and to let others lead who can restore faith in the Movement and its original intent. I stand in Solidarity with all the Sister March Organizations, to bring the Movement back to its authentic purpose. As Women’s March founder, I am stepping up to bring focus back to the Unity Principles on which our movement began, and with the support of all of those who marched and have continued to march, I pledge to support grassroots, decentralized leadership promoting a safe, worldwide community devoid of hate speech, bigotry and racism.”
