Weekly Roundup of the Virginia GOP Freak Show (3/9/18)


As we know, the Virginia GOP is a continuing freak show. I am seriously tempted to do a weekly roundup of said freak show, but for now, I think I’ll just do one for the previous week. If you have other items you think should be added to the freak show list, please mention them in the comments section. With that, enjoy (?)!

Virginia GOP US Senate Candidates

  • Theocrat, homophobic bigot, and all-around extremist EW Jackson muses about shit that happened 46 years ago and that he’s clearly still REALLY MAD ABOUT!!!!! LOL
  • Neo-Confederate Corey Stewart for some reason is claiming that Hillary Clinton is more likely to kill you than an AR-15. Given that there is literally a ZERO.ZERO% chance that Hillary Clinton will kill you, that’s a pretty audacious claim from Corey! LOL
  • Del. Nick Freitas (R-NRA) is super super excited that his pal Sean Hannity over at Fox Propaganda named the speech which just earned him a “coarse sandpaper award” from his fellow House Republicans (Del. Terry Kilgore notes that coarse sandpaper “just rips the skin off”) for his over-the-top, bats***-crazy speech last Friday. Yep, that same speech which was condemned by several of Freitas’ African-American colleagues for being “Hurtful,” “Painful,” “Divisive,” “Hateful,” and “Reckless.”
  • Meanwhile, another VA GOP candidate to get annihilated by Sen. Tim Kaine in November, Bert Mizusawa, FINALLY announced his candidacy in a speech that was a weird combo of incoherent and super boring. Even though Mizusawa keeps using words like “excited” and “tremendous excitement.” Hint: there isn’t any.

Virginia Republicans

  • Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA07), whose career is clearly on borrowed time, recently “liked” a tweet asking “Who Is Paying” (!) Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Student David Hogg. Yep, Brat was always a wackjob, but now he’s gone full Alex Jones-style “truther” on us. Fortunately, we can and will defeat him in November.

We could go on all day with this, but I think that gives you the idea of how the folks on the “other side of the aisle” are behaving these days. Aren’t you glad you’re not a Republican?
