Turiano Says “the Great Unwashed” Need Conservatism; Worries that “White America” Will Be “Exterminated”
If Montana’s GOP congressional primary is to be a race to the right, then a winner has now emerged. Enter Drew Turiano, a TEA Party candidate who has previously campaigned for Governor and Secretary of state in Montana on the Republican ticket.
Turiano apparently believes that the ideas he espouses need no longer be confined to white supremacy websites, he wants them engraved into federal law.
On his website, Turiano writes that what Montana and America need most is to completely outlaw all immigration any kind completely. He would repeal the 1965 Immigration Act because it “was always destined to devastate the Conservative way of life in Montana and America by forcing a Third World majority upon our nation that would soon give the Communist sympathizing Bill Ayers left-wing permanent control of America.”
Turiano calls not only for an end to all legal immigration, he also wants to deport children who were born here legally and have birthright citizenship, and deny the right to vote to all legal immigrants who have ever received any government assistance.
He complains that within 20 years, the U.S. will no longer be mostly white but instead have a “Third World majority.” He worries that this country “become like South Africa in 50 years or less” and that “white America” will be “exterminated.” [screenshot]
He says that because of America’s “changing demographics” that everything we hold dear “is on the threshold to total obliteration–including everything from conservatism, to Christianity the constitution to “capitalism etc.”[Screenshots here 1 2 3 4 5 6].
In Turiano’s campaign he announcement reveals that he is a birther when he tells us that conservatives “only need to look at Joe Arpaio’s report pertaining to Obama’s birth certificate” a birther screed. He’s also quick to point out that conservatism isn’t just what’s best for the real estate investment class like himself, its best for those he calls “the great unwashed.” Screenshot.
The only way Christian, traditional and Middle America can be resurrected in our country now is for us Conservatives to destroy the nation that replaced them. [Screenshot.]
He sent out a mass mailer last election cycle saying (among other crazy things) that his problem with immigration is not only with the undocumented workers and the “many murderers, rapists, and thieves in that group.” He said in the mailer that immigrants have caused “severe damage” to our “culture, customs, neighborhoods, crime rate, English language, schools, health care system and the general economic health of America.”
Turiano considers notorious racist Pat Buchanan to be one of his “political icons” and was lambasted on Huffington post just a few weeks ago after he told local television station KXLH that he thinks “America needs another Operation Wetback.”
Turiano seems unaware, or unconcerned that, as HuffPo points out, “Many Latinos would also likely take exception to naming a deportation program “wetback,” a derogatory term used primarily to refer to Mexicans.”
He is pro-nullification, favors forced birth for rape victims and his views on education are beyond the pale: Turiano would abolish public education entirely.
Turiano apparently believes that public schools make children gay. He writes that children are “manipulated into the homosexual lifestyle by that same school system in our country that seems to promote homosexuality every day.”
He says “medical statistics show that most of them will have their bodies ravaged by venereal diseases that will end their lives prematurely” and that this children’s “souls will enter hell for an eternity – for trillions and trillions of years.” [Screenshots 1 2 3 4]
He’s got so many incredible positions that his post has only just scratched the surface, so go read the rest of his views- there are enough wacky beliefs to fill many national news stories and blog posts. Not to be missed are his views on evolution [screenshot], and the argument he seems to believe proves that the earth is only 6000 years old. [screenshot]
When it comes to experience, Turiano doesn’t have much. He touts his work as a volunteer for Conrad Burns in 2006. He also openly admits he served as Communications Director for former Montana House Majority Leader Mike Lange–yes, the same Mike Lange that made national news after an angry, expletive filled tirade aimed at Governor Brian Schweitzer was captured by a television reporter. That’s not really something most people would include willingly on a resume.
Turiano lists his profession as real estate investor in Helena.
So this is the kind of frightening person inspired to run for Congress on the GOP ticket today, even though more people like this is the last thing America needs in Congress, or anywhere.Tweet
