The Daily Caller is calling out Tennessee Democratic Party spokesman Mark Brown’s offensive language against Republicans, evangelical Christians who support President Donald Trump and even country music. Brown also serves as spokesman for Phil Bredesen’s U.S. Senate campaign.
“Many of Brown’s most offensive tweets have been deleted but have been documented with screensaver captures,” David Krayden writes for the Daily Caller, and lists several instances.
“On October 31, 2017, Brown, who is trying to get Democratic candidates elected in the Bible Belt, tweeted out an article from the LA Times entitled, ‘Under Trump, Evangelicals show their true racist colors.”
Brown, who lives in the heart of the country music capital, also tweeted, “If forced to pick my favorite mainstream country act, I would gouge out my eardrums with a f—ing icepick.”
Scott Golden, Tennessee Republican Party Chairman, said in a statement, “For him to attack people of faith for supporting the President is truly a new low. Such hateful vitriol is always a bad look, but Phil Bredesen and his followers continue to double down on their disdain for Tennesseans.”
Brown has been cursing up a storm.
Brown, who has been promoting Bredesen’s campaign in his role as a spokesman for the Tennessee Democratic Party, in the past has tweeted “f*** ‘reaching out’ to Trump voters. The idiots aren’t listening,” The Tennessee Star reported July 31, citing the Washington Free Beacon. The Star ran a story the following day citing Republicans’ reactions to the offensive language.
Golden also cited another Democratic official’s violent language: U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen. The representative last month said he wanted President Trump to tell U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who is running against Bredesen, to jump off a bridge. The Tennessee Star reported the story Aug. 10.
“The big orange president …. He’s going to come down here and he is going to endorse Marsha Blackburn, because Marsha Blackburn, if he says, ‘Jump off the Harahan Bridge,’ she’ll jump off the Harahan Bridge,” Cohen said in the audio obtained by The Huffington Post.
The remarks were made at a prayer breakfast hosted by Bredesen’s campaign. Bredesen was present but did not defend Blackburn from the violent language.
The Tennessee Republican Party released a new ad Tuesday highlighting Bredesen’s ties to extremist liberal Democrats and their immigration policies that are out-of-step with a majority of Tennesseans. The ad will run on digital platforms statewide and is available here.
Golden said in a statement, “There’s an old saying that one should put their money where their mouth is. But Phony Phil Bredesen’s mouth and money are in totally different places. He says one thing but then turns around and accepts tens of thousands of dollars from extremist Democrats who want to abolish ICE, refuse to build the wall, and resist President Trump at every turn. Tennesseans elected President Trump to secure our border and curtail illegal immigration. Phony Phil can’t run from the fact that his biggest supporters are at odds with Tennesseans’ priorities.”
In a recent video interview with the Chattanooga Times Free Press, Bredesen said he has one foot planted in the rural world and one foot in a “more sophisticated” world, The Tennessee Star reported recently.
He touted his experience at an Ivy League college and his work as mayor, governor and CEO of a public company.
