Al Green played a recordings of racial slurs he received from Trump supporters at a packed town hall in Houston on Saturday. Green has been dealing with this inhumane behavior for the past couple of days ever since he called for Trump’s impeachment.
“You can decide for yourself what we’re dealing with,” He said to the gathering before the recorded audio of death threats played.
“Try it,” the first caller threatens, referring to impeaching Trump, “and we’ll lynch all you fucking n****rs, you’ll be hanging from a tree. I didn’t see anybody calling for the impeachment of your n****r Obama when he was born in Kenya. He’s not even an American. So, fuck you, n****r.”
Green had received a number of such threats as another caller makes the same threat. Green said his staff had also recorded a third similar message.
Unwavering, the congressman promised to continue his fight to oust Trump, which so far has been a solitary one among his congressional colleagues who have stopped short of calling for president’s impeachment.
“No amount of threats or intimidation will stop us…I promise you,” Al Green had noted accordig to a tweet by Tim Murphy.
First call he received ends with "Fuck you n——"
