VIDEO: Republican Election Official Slams Trump, GOP for ‘Complicity’ in Violent Threats

A noose meant for a 20-year old poll worker was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

If there is one thing that a majority of sane Americans can agree upon, it’s that our political rhetoric has gotten enormously heated over the course of the last several decades, and particularly so in the last few years.

Some of this angst was expected, as Donald Trump sauntered into the nation’s capital for the express purpose of “draining the swamp”; a notion that already had a great many establishment politicians on edge.

But the emotional toll of the 2020 election is what has Gabriel Sterling, a Republican election official in Georgia furious.

After a noose was found targeting a 20-year-old Peach State poll worker this week, Sterling had seen enough, and called a press conference to address the issue.

Sterling started the press conference calling out President Donald Trump and Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, who he said he still fully supports, for not coming out against the on-going threats being made on Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, his wife, and numerous elections officials and contractors.

“Be the bigger man here and step in and tell your supporters to stop,” Sterling, a life-long conservative, directly challenged the president.

He said the “straw that broke the camel’s back” was a 20-something Gwinnett County contractor with Dominion, the company entrusted with Georgia’s new voting system, had a noose out in front of his home with his name on it after a video was posted online claiming to show him “manipulate data.”

“He just took a job,” an emotional Sterling said adding he chose to have a high-profile job, but the young man who was threatened was just doing his job. “People started accusing him of treason.”

The lifelong conservative turned the heat up on the White House as well.

“Mr. President, you have not condemned these actions or this language. Senators, you have not condemned this language or these actions,” Sterling said, visibly angry. “This has to stop. We need you to step up, and if you’re going to take a position of leadership, show some.”

Video of the speech has been circulating online, and is a must-watch tirade.
