Call for Resignation of Richard Floyd for calling for violence against the transgendered.

Hi, State Rep. Richard Floyd threatened to "stomp a mudhole" into any transgender woman who uses a public restroom in Tennessee. "Stomp a mudhole," according to Urban Dictionary, means "To tear someone a new ass, to beat them to near death or to otherwise hurt someone to the point that they can not fight back." We cannot tolerate such hate! That's why I signed a petition to The Tennessee State House, The Tennessee State Senate, and Governor Bill Haslam, which says: "State Rep. Richard Floyd does not have the right to threaten transgendered women in his state. Hate speech like this should not be tolerated! Stop the cycle of hate now!" Will you sign this petition?

Dee,

Thank you for posting this.  Tennessee needs an awakening.  I don't know how that will be made to happen.  The fact that you are there makes it a better place.

You would think so, but he isn't getting any harrassment from the good god fearing people of Tennessee.

I'm no expert of federal law, but I would think this to be incitement to say the least.

Check me on this ... but isn't what Richard Floyd did a felony?
