David Howard: Still A Racist

Shares

Well, Representative David Howard is still at it: using his Facebook page to advance crackpot racist theories and abuse apostrophes unmercifully.

Remember, when you vote for a Republican for the Montana Legislature, you’re voting to put people like this in the majority and in charge of committees which impact the lives of all Montanans.

And as a man of some size myself, am I allowed to express my joy that Howard referenced Chris Christie, a 400 pound man who gets his paycheck from the government, as evidence?

  • I do wish he’d leave progressives out of it and limit his comments to Democrats. You folks don’t even want us around except to vote for your stellar lineup. Why does he paint with such a broad brush?

  • How does an analogy of how our federal government has handled a separate jurisdiction constitute a “crackpot racist theory?” If you want to witness racist theories, how about focusing your attention to what is taking in place in Florida with the New Black Panther Party threatening to spill the blood of anyone with “blonde hair, blue eyes”….Or how about addressing our Attorney General’s and Washington DC’s stunning response to incriminate a citizen who has yet to be put through a trial by law. You soft liberals based out of Helena and Missoula have lost the ability to reason with any clarity and are ruining the state of Montana on the political front. The day you people can return to CA, OR, WA, east coast, or wherever will be the day this state gets back on track.

  • I am equal parts disgusted and amazed that anyone living in this country in this time is still racist. I thought that whole thing had been pretty much put to bed decades ago. I am aware that racists and bigots still exist, but I thought the vast majority of them had crawled back under their rocks waiting to die off like the dinosaurs they are.

    I can only hope that, as a country, we heap enough disgust on these slugs to drive them into extinction.

    • It has been well argued by many, including the President himself, that this resurgence of racist rhetoric was inevitable with the election of the nation’s first black President. It doesn’t make it any less disgusting, I know.

      And someone should inform Tokarski that to the supporters of the party of actual evil, there is no difference between Democrats and Progressives.
