Lawmaker Faces Lynching Threats After Calling for Trump’s Impeachment. This is Trump's base, ignorant, poorly educate bigots. Hilary Clinton had it right; "basket of deplorables" speaking about one half of Trump supporters. I think she was being kind.
"A black congressman from Texas has been on the receiving end of some horrifically racist slurs after he vowed to pursue impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump earlier this week. Texas Rep. Al Green played constituents a few recordings of some of the voicemail messages he received over the past few days. He later posted those recordings on YouTube.
"You'll be hanging from a tree," one caller said. Another warns that “you ain’t going to impeach nobody. Try it and we will lynch all of you.” Not surprisingly, the messages are filled with racial slurs, and the n-word is frequently uttered."
