During a debate, a white political candidate advised a mystery meat candidate who pushes for reparations for the Negro population to “Go back to Africa.”
All in all, while the press is trying to smear Paul Congemi, I would say he scored a small victory for common sense. He said the words “Go back to Africa” and lived to tell about it.
Both Congemi and Jesse Nevel, the mystery meat candidate for mayor whose platform is reparations for blacks, are fringe candidates. But anytime we can get the idea out that disaffected blacks have a choice to buy a ticket to Africa, we win.
A Florida mayoral candidate went on a tirade when he told his rival’s supporters to ‘go back to Africa’.
St Petersburg GOP candidate Paul Congemi made the remarks during a mayoral forum in the town’s City Hall on Tuesday.
In the midst of a question about opportunities for youth in the city, Congemi veered off-topic in comments directed at supporters of International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement-affiliated candidate Jesse Nevel.
Jesse Nevel demands reparations.
‘Mr Nevel, you and your people you talk about reparations. The reparations that you talk about, Mr Nevel, your people already got your reparations. Your reparations came in the form of a man named Barack Obama,’ the Republican said.
A raucous ensued and a woman in the audience could be heard yelling: ‘Get out of here, get out of here,’ at Congemi.
‘My advice to you if you don’t like it here in America, planes leave every hour from from Tampa Airport, go back to Africa,’ he told Nevel supporters.
‘Go back to Africa. Go back to Africa. Go back!’ he said.
Nevel, 27, the national chairman of the movement that organizes white support for black-led community social justice, is white himself He dismissed Congemi as a ‘non-factor’ after the remarks.
However, Congemi said his comment was meant towards just a specific group.
‘I must comment on the remarks I said last night…Yes: I did tell those people to go back to Africa,’ Congemi wrote in a statement to The Tampa Bay Times.
‘My remark was meant for the group Mr Nevel represents. Not all African Americans. Just those that Nevel represents.’
Congemi also attacked current mayor Rick Krisemen for his support of the LGBT community.
‘I will never endorse sin,’ he said.
This is Congemi’s third run for mayor. He said he wants to hold the record for the most bids for mayor in St Petersburg history before he dies.
He’s also had several run-ins with the law. In the most recent, Congemi was charged with felony elder abuse in January after his 87-year-old mother ended up in intensive care for bed sores.
The sores on her tailbone were reportedly so neglected that the bone was visible. Charges have since been dropped.
You have to suspect that the (((power elites))) would like to shut Congemi up, which is what led to the since dropped criminal charges.
