Why Do Montana Republicans Always Talk About Civil Wars?

Typical responsible Republican rhetoric on abortion rights today.

Wendy Warburton (R-Nutsylvania):

“Last night, Democrats essentially voted to muzzle the people of Montana on one of the most important issues of our time: abortion,” said Rep. Wendy Warburton, R-Havre (pictured).

I probably missed Wendy’s press conference after House Republicans blocked discussion about the death penalty in Montana.

Dan McGee (R-Wingnuteria)

“It is truly unfortunate that the big business of killing babies has so persuaded the Democratic Party,” McGee said.

McGee said Republicans attempted to work with Democrats on these issues but it did not seem to take. He also compared abortion with slavery and predicted an upheaval comparable to the Civil War. “You bet there will be,” McGee said.

No comment.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
