Alabama state rep. Alan Harper (R-of course), is very selective about which of his constituents he works for and he suggests that you should be too.
In a now deleted Facebook post (thank you Crooks and Liars, for your screenshot), Harper made it very clear that good Christians should stop frequenting convenience stores owned and run by people darker than him.
Alan Harper, an Aliceville Republican who represents Tuscaloosa and Pickens counties in the Alabama House, said in a Monday Facebook post that travelers should try to “shop and purchase gas and other items at American owned stores.” “The C stores/tobacco outlets, etc. with the lights around the windows and doors are not owned by God fearing Christians.” Harper wrote, using an abbreviation for a convenience store. “In large part, these stores are owned by folk that send their profits back to their homeland and then in turn use these funds against our country to create turmoil, fear and in some cases death and destruction. “I realize I am “painting with a broad brush” here, but the madness has to stop. Please join me in making the extra effort to never support these stores/shops! I am trying to do my part and I know you will too,” he said, adding “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! May God Bless.” Source: AL.com
He’s right. The madness does need to stop, but that means stop looking at Muslims (or other dark skinned people) when violence breaks out and start looking at people with a compulsive need to hoard guns, under the guise of the Second Amendment, of course.
Instead, Harper is simply ginning up more fear and, well, we can only hope that his neighborhood 7-11 doesn’t see the type of violence we see in this country every single day.
Of course, it’s not just that. Harper was elected to serve all the people in his district, not just the people who he deems white enough, Christian enough or American enough.
