US Republican politician’s xenophobic ‘hate bus’

Georgia Governor Candidate Runs ‘Deportation Bus’ Ad

18 May 2018

It’s the kind of message you don’t expect to see on a US election campaign bus: “FOLLOW ME TO MEXICO.”

Those are the words on the back door of a repainted school bus Michael Williams is using to drum up support in his bid for the Georgia governor’s seat. He’s dubbed it the “Deportation Bus” and says it’s a show of support for the Trump administration’s crackdown on illegal immigration.

This is shortly after another US Republican’s advocacy on the Internet of killing disabled people.

This is five years after British Conservative Theresa May, then Home Secretary, now Prime Minister, used taxpayers’ money to have ‘hate vans’, with slogans against immigrants driving around the country.

This is 57 years after the original ‘hate bus’.

It advocated sending African Americans forcibly to Africa. It rode through Georgia and other ex-slave states in 1961.

It had been hired by Commander George Lincoln Rockwell, the founder of the American Nazi Party.

Unfortunately for the nazis, Rockwell had not paid enough, so the hate bus was repossessed.

One should hope this will also happen to the 2018 hate bus of candidate Michael Williams.

However, as there are now far-right billionaires like Donald Trump, the Koch brothers; and as candidate Wiliams is rather rich himself; etc. that unfortunately may not happen.
