TheBlaze’s Lawrence Jones was threatened and received death threats for his conservative views on Obamacare even as he advocates for the black community, Jones said Monday on “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”
TheBlaze reported that Jones went on Fox & Friends Sunday to respond to comedian Wanda Sykes, who said on “The View” that the fight to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act is rooted in racism.
The “30-hour rule in Obamacare affected my community harshly,” Jones said on Sunday, referring to an Obamacare provision. “A lot of us weren’t able to get jobs and couldn’t get the necessary hours because of that 30-hour rule. So I think it’s really comical that the liberals are all of sudden concerned about black America.”
Jones came to the studio on Monday to talk about the backlash to his comments.

“I got a slew of death threats, and a lot of these were white progressives,” Jones said, detailing a comment from someone who said Jones deserved to be “strung up” for being a “white-loving black person.”

On Thursday, Jones had tense interaction with reporter April Ryan during Trump’s press conference when the president insisted Ryan set up a meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus. Ryan is a reporter for American Urban Radio Network and is not a member of Congress, TheBlaze reported.
Jones told Ryan, “So what did Obama do? Double the national average in unemployment? Young people struggling to get jobs… Common core that hurts our community – what did Obama do from an economic standpoint to benefit the black community? Zero.”
Lawrence Jones at one time supported President Obama and campaigned for him but does not support Obama now after seeing the real truth that Obama did nothing for the black community.
As with all black conservatives, the liberals and socialists paint such individuals as traitors to their own race, even if he or she speaks the truth.
