Jones said, “What I see happening from the Democrats and the Left: banding together, going throughout this country unlawfully tearing down statues and removing monuments and changing the name of streets and buildings because they feel it’s associated with racism and bigotry and the Confederacy.”

He then added, “But, here’s what they’re not touching and not banning at all or changing the name: the Democratic Party.’”

Jones said his party should use their national convention this year to change Democrats’ name in order to severe their past association with racism, slavery and the Confederacy.

“Join me and others. Let’s challenge the Democrat Party, to have at their national convention, the number one platform issue that they will disband and change the Democratic Party,” Jones declared.

The state lawmaker added, “It would no longer be called the Democratic Party. Why? Because it’s associated with racism, bigotry and the Confederacy.”

“I’ve got a lot more. Stay tuned with me, America. We’ll see you soon. Peace out,” Jones finished.
