A Communist council member in one of Georgia’s biggest cities picked Malcolm X over the Bible for her swearing-in.
Mariah Parker was sworn in this week to represent District 2 on the Athens-Clarke County Commission and refused to take her oath of office on the Bible, WSB-TV reported.
“They asked if they would like the Bible and I said no. My mother asked if there was a copy of the Constitution around. No,” Ms. Parker told the AJC.
“I wanted Malcolm’s book,” she said, referring to “The Autobiography of Malcolm X,” which, despite its title, was written by Alex Haley after its subject’s assassination by members of the Nation of Islam.
“I think they saw it coming,” said Ms. Parker, who also raised her fist in a Communist salute while taking the oath.
She is a 26-year-old doctoral student at the University of Georgia, in Athens, and won her race by just 13 votes. She campaigned for “bold, progressive leadership in Athens.”

You're right, every vote counts, and it's a shame that a #racist, #Hate filled #Communist was ever elected to any office in #America #WeThePeople are onto you, and #communism will be driven from #America pic.twitter.com/kzGn6mR6gv

“I was very lucky to break away from some of the generational patterns, by going to college and getting out of the town,” said Parker. “But I struggled and I thought people only looked at me as having nothing to offer.”
A progressive (Communist) who describes herself as openly queer, Parker was motivated to run for office because of what she saw was a need for vocal leadership.
She beat Taylor Pass by 13 votes, running on a Cultural Marxist platform of economic justice, reducing poverty and discrimination, affordable housing, fair wage jobs, youth development, criminal justice reform and marijuana reform.
“Malcolm’s willingness to uneditedly speak about black people at large, are qualities that I want to embody,” Parker said. “To speak out when I see things going wrong.”
Unfortunately, she is what’s going wrong. It’s doubtful she will speak out against her own hate, love of communism, and the genocide of the black race in abortion clinics.
