David Howard Watch: Violence Against Young Black Men and the President

Shares

While it seems Representative David Howard can do and say almost anything without getting attention from the media, I thought his latest political observation on Facebook was worth passing along.

In the wake of the Zimmerman verdict and President Obama’s measured remarks today, Representative Howard took a somewhat less civil view:

For a refresher, Mr. Howard was appointed by House Republican Leadership as the Human Services Committee chair and served on the Judiciary, Agriculture, and ETHICS Committees.

Unfortunately, Don, being a racist asshole resonates with a goodly portion of ReePubes in Montana. Hell, Sen. Cornhole Burns led the way his entire senate career. He started the ball rolling. But of course ol’ Cornhole was much more subtle about it. But even so, it was all by design to send the coded message that racism was perfectly acceptable here in Montana. But it wasn’t just Cornhole Burns. Judy Mars was a huge proponent of home schools and the militia morons. She did her part to attract weirdos as best she could. And it worked! Hence, guys like Birther… Read more »

Though I disagree with Larry on the size and scope of Bigots moving to the state, I can agree with him that it seems only the Bigots, Warmongers and Corporate greedsters , and out of staters run for office on the GOP ticket lately.

Talking to biggie when he has just a tiny weenie heart and and even smaller brain doesn’t help you Larry. Your arguing with a flea from the defunct flea’s circus….. chances are he doesn’t know what next dog to jump on.

I actually like Swede. He’s an interesting fellow in all his incarnations, AND, he owns one of the most beautiful chunks of Montana I’ve ever trespassed across. I just wish he wasn’t such a racist asshole. That’s all. I think that most of the time he enjoys playing the devil’s advocate.
