Here’s Nydia Tisdale with her picture on the front page of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Gretchen and I dropped in on Nydia Sunday afternoon in Roswell, GA.
Needless to say, we support Nydia.
She usually doesn’t even provide commentary with her video reports,
yet when videoing public meetings she’s repeatedly faced obstruction
from people who don’t seem to know the First Amendment, nor even the Four Amendment, much less Georgia’s Open Meetings Law.
Mostly what the assembled rotaries and homebuilders seemed to be interested in was getting the Senator to defend Moody Air Force Base against closure,
which makes sense, since Moody is still by far the largest economic engine of the entire central south Georgia and north Florida region.
Maybe you can hear where he says anything about defending us from the invading Sabal Trail fracked methane pipeline; I must have missed that part.
He ended by saying it wasn’t about rich vs. poor, and quoting from the Declaration of Independence about “we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.” There’s no mutuality in the federal government giving eminent domain to a pipeline company from Houston, Texas to take our lands so they can profit by exporting fracked methane.
State Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens reportedly asked Nydia Tisdale “I don’t know why you’re videotaping” and was recorded moments later laughing as
she yelled for help while a deputy
forcibly ejected her from a political rally
in front of Governor Nathan Deal and U.S. Senate candidate David Perdue.
