COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) – On the day a Hate Crime Bill passed the South Carolina State House after years of failed attempts, a controversy has erupted over one state lawmaker’s comments.
In an effort to explain why he was voting against the Hate Crime Bill on Wednesday, Rep. Vic Dabney, R-Camden, posted a statement on Facebook that one of his colleagues has called overtly racist and deeply offensive, saying Dabney should resign from office.
Dabney said in the post, which he has since deleted, that he would not vote for the Hate Crime Bill because he had spent his 63 years watching our society give in to the Liberals…. and it’s never enough.
He said he feels his way of life has been vilified by Democrats.
It’s our whiteness and our straightness’ that keeps getting in the way, Dabney wrote. No matter how much we give in to them, we just can’t seem to get it right.
