Black Congressman Threatened With Lynching After Calling for Trump’s Impeachment

Deep in the heart of Texas, it can still be sketchy for black folks. Ask Sandra Bland. Or James Byrd Jr. Or the scores of others who lost their lives in acts of racial terror in the Lone Star state.

Editor’s Warning: The images in the video below are of a real life lynching and are extremely disturbing.

So when Congressman Al Green of Houston played recordings of serious threats against his bodily person during a town hall meeting on Saturday, they should definitely be taken seriously.

The Houston representative said the threats came en masse after he called for he impeachment of President Donald Trump on the House floor earlier this week in light of the James Comey debacle, according to MSNBC.

 He was the first Congressman to do so from the house floor.

“You’ll be hanging from a tree,” one caller said.

“You ain’t going to impeach anybody. Try it and we will lynch all of you,” said another.
