A Parents Bill of Rights that Gov. Brian Kemp highlighted in his State of the State address this past week will be carried in the state Senate by one of Gwinnett’s legislators.

State Sen. Clint Dixon, R-Buford, expects to introduce the legislation, which he said will cover several different areas related to education including curriculum, sometime this week. Dixon is one of Kemp’s floor leaders in the Georgia Senate.

Apparently Kemp is oblivious to the fact that it is conservatives who foment divisiveness while Democrats keep trying to bring everyone together. His speech which was throwing raw meat to the far right shows how little he understands what Georgians need in a governor. Dixson can carry this bill all he wants and it may pass thanks to the gerrymandered legislative districts which give conservatiives much more influence than the voters support. The bill is full of nonsense pandering to the far right minority which seems ignroant of relevant facts and which serves as the rotten core of the Republican party in Georgia. Let them rue the day as it should enrage voters to throw out a Republican party that won't act in the best interests of all Georgians.
