Interesting doings over at the Whitefish Facebook community Informed Whitefish, where TEA Party Republican Derek Skees (R-
Whitefish Kalispell) has blanketed the site over the past few days with his unique TEA Party views.
Unfortunately it seems instead of getting in line with the views of his constituents, Skees’ idea is get online and berate the citizens. It’s his way or no way. But a House Representative is supposed to…well…represent the district, and the Whitefish district is a liberal one. Mostly Skees has figured out that even moderate Republicans’s are upset with his extreme ideology. There are rumors that Skees may not run for HD 4 again now that Tom Muri is in the race. Though Skees isn’t saying he’ll abandon the seat, rather, when the topic came up in the forum:
Then Skees expresses support for a project that his own bill would have eliminated:
Whitefish citizens like windmills and hydro power as indicated by the city having its own hydro plant. And Rep. Skees wanted to repeal energy efficiency standards….come on, this self proclaimed TEA fanatic is out of touch with the main street values of anywhere, not to mention Whitefish.
There are many more Skees rants on the page, which is definitely worth a read. Skees makes up and misuses words (he couldn’t have really meant that he opposes “obvious biases towards one’s own potions” could he?):
There’s even ranting about civil war era weap0ns and what are presumably obscure war philosophy books. Some of this stuff he’s since edited, hence the screen shots.
And don’t forget your standard TEA party insults toward constituents:
