The GOP has a tricky situation now. They have to decide what position they will take publicly about whether LGBT citizens of Montana should be punished or beaten or killed for being gay, which a great number clearly believe.
With the ultra-right, gay-hating, gun-wielding, Winston-smoking crowd fired up this season, and with third-party candidates running in some seats, the Republicans must decide whether they will just ride the wave of hatred and hope it gets enough voters out to win the day; or, whether they should do what they know is the civilized thing, and denounce the violence against gays, denounce Ravndal and those who believe he did the right thing when he advocated violence against gays on his Facebook page, and renounce the GOP plank that calls for gays to be imprisoned.
So far, nothing from Deschamps or Greenwood on this issue. Or from Rehberg, or Story or whatever inconsequential and obscure idiot was the House minority leader last session. Anyone remember? Jason Priest is a national “joke.” Perhaps these lunatics are enjoying the national attention. Nothing from Corey Stapleton, Child Addict, nor any other Republican candidate for Governor or Senator.
Time to step up to the plate and say what you believe. We’re waiting.
