GOP State Senator Shares Post Comparing Democrats to Slave Owners

Another gem from newly-elected state senator Nels Swandal (R-Gallatin, Sweetgrass and Park Counties). Swandal posted on his Facebook page a quotation and a picture from convicted felon and racist filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, which compares the Democratic Party to slave owners.

Republicans have been eager lately to say everything they oppose these days is as bad or worse than slavery–except perhaps slavery itself.  After all, many in Swandal’s party support nullification and secession – nullification is enshrined in the MTGOP platform.  

As TIME reported,nullification also has a controversial history. It was invoked by South Carolina lawmakers seething over tariff laws in the antebellum South, and again during the civil-rights era, when states opposed to the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision of 1954 used the idea of interposition, nullification’s kissing cousin, as a mechanism to resist integration.”

  1. And to think this guy was once a district court judge. How shameful. Only God knows how many peoples’ lives were messed up because of this clown.

  2. He’s now saying he’s been hacked. He doesn’t seem to know the ins and outs of Facebook because he’s simply been “tagged” by someone. LOL However, he’s more concerned about the yoga pants thing than he is about the slave comparison. THAT’S the one he should claim “hacked” over.

  3. Swandal is an embarrassment to his constituency.

  4. 1. This GOP state senator has been feeding at the government trough since 1983.
    2. The Swandal Ranch Company has applied for and received in excess of $150,000 in federal welfare.

  5. State newspapers have picked up this post.

  6. Art Wittich’s 11/30 tweet referring to COPP Motl as “boy” is another example of the hateful tone being set by the GOP for the upcoming session.

    Yep.Will his COPP boy care?”@CarterTroy: Gov. Hypocrite? DGA chair Bullock to raise dark money campaign cash #MTpol”
