Opinion: Where is Republican outrage at disruption to Democrats’ event?

On Monday evening, Aug. 23, a Zoom event hosted by the Hall County Democratic Party was disrupted by a troll. The disruption was vile, disgusting, misogynistic, racist and misanthropic.  

There are all kinds of people in our society, and people who cause such disruptions are pathetic cowards. 

The disruption prevented a presentation by U.S. Senate candidate Raphael Warnock. Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Rep. Doug Collins employ a political philosophy that encourages such disruptions.  

Can you hear their outrage at the disruption on Monday night? I can’t hear it either. Do you hear the Hall County Republican Party chairman’s outrage? I can’t hear it either.  

By not expressing their outrage they encourage such disruptions. There are nice folks on both sides, huh? I am outraged! 

When you vote, choose wisely.
