Whooosh, that doesn’t even start in on his ties to white nationalism that in the wake of the New Zealand shooting need a closer look. Who is he funding? What does he stand for?
From the New Republic: Greg Gianforte has disturbing ties to White Nationalists:
Gianforte donated twice to the campaign of Taylor Rose, a Montana Republican with ties to Youth for Western Civilization and the Council for Conservative Citizens. Rewire also reports that Gianforte has donated to politicians affiliated with the Oathkeeper movement.
Served with [Douglas] Wilson on the board of the Association of Classical and Christian Schools.
With co-author Steven Wilkins, Wilson authored a book that characterized the institution of slavery as “a relationship based upon mutual affection and confidence.” He said of the ante-bellum South, “There has never been a multiracial society which has existed with such mutual intimacy and harmony in the history of the world.”
After what happened in the mass shooting in New Zealand we had hoped that the frightening comments would stop for a while, but sadly we heard some very frightening and dangerous comments from anti-abortion activists this week:
“I’ve done everything their is to do in the pro-life movement except shoot an abortionist”
This is what Greg Gianforte wants for Montana. He would sign these bills and put women’s health and safety at risk.
We must do everything in our power to prevent Greg Gianforte from becoming Governor of Montana.
