After a Hall County Democratic Party virtual meeting was interrupted by hackers targeting a U.S. Senate candidate, Georgia Democrats are criticizing the hackers’ racist messages and calling for unity.
The local Democrats hosted a Zoom meeting the evening of Monday, Aug. 24, with U.S. Senate candidate the Rev. Raphael Warnock. However, the meeting was hacked, with people entering the meeting with racist slurs and pornographic content.
In a statement, the Hall County Democratic Party called the hacking a “disgusting display of the hatred aimed at Rev. Warnock and others who fight for a fair and equitable society.”
And Warnock isn’t letting racist hackers kill his momentum:
“I rise today to say that health care is a human right and it is certainly something that the richest nation in the world can and ought to provide for all of its citizens,” U.S. Senate candidate, Reverend Raphael Warnock said.
Rev. Warnock is one of the Democratic candidates for Georgia’s U.S. Senate race and isn’t alone when he says Georgians should have access to affordable health care. His Republican opponent’s Congressman Doug Collins and Senator Kelly Loeffler say they feel the same, but Warnock says the two want to get rid of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) which would leave 1.8 million Georgians uncovered. According to Collins’ website, he says he has voted more than 50 times against the ACA.
“And right now what you have is a United States Senator who does not believe that health care is a human right. Who is not willing to stand up, who is supporting the Trump administration as it’s trying to get rid of the Affordable Care Act in the middle of a global pandemic,” Warnock said.
