James Upchurch is the county commissioner who switched from democratic socialist to Republican during the relatively recent past. He has now announced his resignation to take a job out-of-state.
A Rhino article this week disclosed that Upchurch had received death threats because he changed parties.
But wait a minute. I thought the socialists were supposed to be loving, caring and compassionate people.
Is anyone surprised that he received death threats? I am not. People do not understand the intensity and the ruthlessness associated with their drive toward Godless socialism.
