Feeling the pressure of a very, very close election (34 vote margin) Columbus County Sheriff Jody Greene called former Captain Jason Soles and vented like a Grand Wizard of the KKK

Back in 2018, Greene was furious that a complaint was made against him, which initiated an investigation to see if he was ineligible to serve his position.

Paranoia engulfed him. Greene claimed there was a "snitch" leaking information to his rival. And then his true character was revealed.

"I’m sick of it. I’m sick of these Black bastards. I’m going to clean house and be done with it. And we’ll start from there,” Greene said.

While the powers that be were fighting out the election, Soles told WECT that immediately after his appointment as acting sheriff, he began getting late-night phone calls from Greene.

“This one particular phone call that [I] received, he made the comment that he hated Democrats. And then he said, ‘I take that back. I hate a Black f***ing Democrat.’ And, and I knew right then, I was like, ‘Wow, this is coming from the sheriff.’ And, I had to start recording those conversations,” Soles said of the moments before he hit record on the phone call."

Greene's rage only grew.

“Tomorrow’s gonna be a new f**king day. I’m still the motherf**king sheriff, and I’ll go up and fire every godd**n [inaudible]. F**k them Black bastards. They think I’m scared? They’re stupid,” Greene said. “I don’t know what else to do it. So it’s just time to clean them out. There’s a snitch in there somewhere tellin’ what we are doing. And I’m not gonna have it. I’m not going to have it.”

In the recording, Greene can be heard saying he’s going to start firing people who are “guilty by f**king association” with Campbell and Hatcher.

“We’ll cut the snake’s head f**king off. Period. And Melvin Campbell is as big a snake as Lewis Hatcher ever dared to be. Every Black that I know, you need to fire him to start with, he’s a snake,” Greene says before ending the phone call.

When conservative friends or family members try to tell you racism doesn't exist any more, play them this tape.
