Be Best, GOP

‘ A local road commission meeting in northern Michigan on Tuesday started with one commissioner asking another why he wasn’t wearing a mask amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The unmasked official responded with a racist slur and an angry rant against the Black Lives Matter movement.

“Well, this whole thing is because of them n-----s in Detroit,” Tom Eckerle, who was elected to his position on the Leelanau County Road Commission in 2018, told his colleague at the start of the public meeting.
The commission chairman, Bob Joyce, immediately rebuked his colleague, but Eckerle, who is White, continued his diatribe.
“I can say anything I want,” Eckerle said at the meeting, which the public could listen to via a dial-in number, the Leelanau Enterprise first reported. “Black Lives Matter has everything to do with taking the country away from us.” ‘

Well, you know, the GOP has done more for Blacks than anyone ever, I’m told.

...with the possible exception of Lincoln. Did you know he was Republican? Who knew?

Well, it sounds like the other members of the commission and the state representative are doing the right thing.
