…Will Deschamps, Chair of the Montana GOP.
Will Deschamps tried to fashion himself as some kind of “moderate” Republican in his race for GOP party chair against extremist Ron Paultard Rick Breckenridge. But don’t be fooled; he’s not.
Deschamps’ many panderings to the extreme right are infamous in Montana, and his mouthpiece Bowen Greenwood’s latest spewed mess in the national media to attempt to whitewash the Montana GOP’s bigotry without actually opposing it is just the latest iteration of his hypocrisy.
Nobody has ever taken the initiative to change it and so it has remained in the party platform, Greenwood said. The matter has never even come up for discussion, he said
No “initiative” and no “discussion” least of all from its party’s leader, Will Deschamps, who has still not stated whether or not he supports or opposes the platform of the party he “leads,” (or used to before the TEA Party arrived) which calls for the imprisonment of gay Montana citizens.
In fact Republicans have voted over and over again on the wrong side of these issues, (and so has the Montana GOP’s token moderate John Brueggeman.)
For cravenly supporting a bigoted platform, which dishonors the citizens of the state of Montana, and justifying that support with cliched blather about blaming the problem on everyone else’s lack of initiative and discussion (and leadership), Will Deschamps truly deserves recognition as a giant hypocrite and a terrible leader.
