Kiah Morris, the first black woman to ever serve in Vermont’s state legislature, is speaking out about her decision to resign in late September after facing repeated harassment — including acts of intimidation at her home that forced her and her husband, who was recovering from heart surgery, to flee to a different town. Morris, who was first elected in 2014 and won re-election in 2016, announced that she wouldn’t seek reelection this year — despite running unopposed — after facing vandalism, death threats that were seen by her young son, and a break-in to her home while her family was present. Despite her declaring her intent to leave office, intimidation from angry youths who would pound on her house’s windows and doors at night continued until she and her husband, who was recovering from heart surgery, were forced to flee her home in Bennington and move to another town.
“There’s obviously online harassment that can happen, and that’s a part of our social media world right now, but then when things started happening in everyday life, that’s when it becomes really worrisome and terrifying,” she told The Associated Press. “That’s the worst part about this. I realized, in seeing what’s happened over the last few years … seeing that our system is not set up in a way to protect someone like me, I cannot be the legislator that I want to be. I cannot speak my truths in a way that need to have been said. I cannot do these things and be secure, be assured of safety for me and my family.”
The lack of action from police to protect her and her family, she added, was shameful.
“There is a component of harm that takes place, whether you say that it’s protected speech or not. And that, I feel, has not been fully vetted and appreciated yet,” she said, explaining that activists, average citizens, and even children in schools were also left without recourse against similar harassment and intimidation.
“Are our law enforcement actually equipped, capable, and knowledgeable enough to really deal with these kinds of complex cases that on their face may seem like a simple act of vandalism, but have so much more happening underneath? They don’t have those capabilities,” she continued. “When it comes to our state’s attorney and they see all this evidence and they say, ‘I can’t move forward with charges because the statute’s not strong enough,’ that’s a systemic failure that has to be addressed or otherwise everyone is left vulnerable.”
As soon as she uttered the phrase, “speak my truths” I knew she was full of shit. There is no “my truths.” There’s only “the truth.” And anyone who uses that phrase is a SJW who is more than likely lying through their teeth.
Of course the mainstream media went for the most sensationalistic headlines they could find:
Voters in Vermont made Kiah Morris a pioneer when, in 2014, they elected her as its first black female legislator. Two years later, another Vermont surfaced: Racist threats eventually forced her to leave office in fear and frustration. https://t.co/4q66INSuXA

Vermont is the whitest state in the country. They’re a bunch of progressives who pretend to care about black people, but yet intentionally moved far away from them. I didn’t trust for a second that this story was how it was being presented. She shit on the cops and the DA in particular for not doing their jobs, which I found impossible to believe. Especially since there would be so much political pressure for them to find these racist terrorists trying to scare the first black elected official from that area. I knew there had to be more to the story, because the mainstream media lies.
And as usual, Turtlegirl was right.
This is Kiah’s husband James Lawton:
He’s classic Vermont – gun toting, freedom loving, virtue signaling SJW. It’s a rare combination that you don’t find anywhere outside of the Green Mountain state. He spends most of his time resisting:
Opining that the biggest threat to America is white people:
Falling for easily debunked racial hoaxes:
And virtue signaling:
The MSM failed to point out that he once threatened one of his wife’s constituents, who he disagreed with on policy matters, by sending them a message with a picture of his semi-automatic rifle, a shotgun, two semi-automatic pistols and a bunch of ammunition magazines, one of which was a large-capacity magazine that’s now illegal in Vermont.
The person who received this message viewed it as a threat and reported it to the AG’s office. Coincidentally she resigned shortly thereafter.
Here’s the best part – his wife voted in favor of a recent gun control bill that outlaws one of the high capacity magazines he sent in the threat.
Obviously then she gets a lot of pushback from her political opponents, one of who is a conservative named Kevin Hoyt. Her husband James goes out of his way to call Hoyt a racist whenever possible. For instance, Hoyt shared a meme of a bunch of black Republicans, and mocked liberals who suggested that people like Candace Owens were Uncle Toms. This happens to black Republicans all the time and it’s stupid. But for even mentioning “Uncle Toms” this made Hoyt the racist:
Dude is full of shit. This is the definition of race baiting.
James Lawton is obsessed with an actual racist named Max Misch, who he constantly quotes:
Hoyt has repeatedly spoken out against this toolbag, but James Lawton insists they’re boys anyway:
This whole thing started because Hoyt, a proud second amendment dude, challenged Morris to a debate for being a hypocrite when she signed a bill that would ban magazines that her husband owned, and called people Nazis when she disagreed with them:
Remember though, she says she’s dropping out of the race because the cops won’t protect her from racist threats that have never happened.
But that’s not true either.
The cops took her allegations very seriously. According to this press release they asked for Morris and Lawton to hand over their computers so they could read some of the threats they allegedly received in context. They did hand over the computers initially, but stalled when the cops asked for the pass codes. After Morris reluctantly provided them to the cops, Lawton marched down to the police station and demanded to have them back, which the cops refused to do. Instead they sent them to the Attorney General’s office for forensic analysis, and right after that Morris resigned.
In other words, there was a shitload of incriminating evidence on there that likely proved that Morris and Lawton were the ones threatening people, and instead of having a political scandal on her hands she dropped out of the election, blamed the racist police and DA for not protecting her, and spoke “her truths.” And the mainstream media did what they always do – fell for it.
