Saturday News: “Trump appears delusional — but the modern-day GOP led the way”; Ayn Rand-Style Right Wingnut Nick Freitas Joins 2018 VA GOP U.S. Senate Field – FREEDOM!!!


by Lowell

Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Saturday, December 9. Oh, and check out the video of newly announced VA GOP U.S. Senate candidate Nick Freitas channeling Ayn Rand about the horrors of gubmint and people telling you what to do and stuff. Nutjob. For some examples illustrating what Freitas believes, check out ‘Religious freedom’ bill passes House committee over objections from LGBT advocates and also his Project Vote Smart ratings (ZERO from NARAL, 100% from the NRA, a pathetic 24% lifetime score from the League of Conservation Voters, 90% from the bats***-crazy American Conservative Union, etc.). And note that Freitas will be facing two even MORE extreme Republicans, if that’s possible — neo-Confederate xenophobe Corey Stewart and frothing-at-the-mouth-crazy Ewwwww Jackson. Yes, that’s today’s Virginia GOP for you – the John Birch Society on steroids.
