A wing-nut’s wing-nut
This is creepy.
Pictured here is our friend Derek Skees and a woman in a Guy Fawkes mask at a Tea Party holding up signs. The mask and the signs send a problematic message. This guy is out there. He’s as out there as they get.
It’s going to be hard to argue that this is just an ordinary mask that the woman wears because she seeks anonymity (as it would indeed be embarrassing to be seen tea-bagging) and not an evocation of anti-government terrorism, because of the distinct anti-faceless message on the signs she and Skees hold. It’s going to be hard for Skees to distance himself from this, because he is proudly posing for these pictures.
Another problem, Mr Skees, is that your sign calls the “coaching” of doctors by bureaucrats “socialism” but what do you call it when you so-called “pro-lifers” in state legislatures start mandating in law what care a doctor is allowed to provide for women? [~crickets~] Your other sign also conflicts with the supposed “pro-life” positions you claim to hold.
