It seems like the Flathead County GOP needed a safe space this weekend.
Not wanting to be outdone by the Yellowstone County GOP’s controversial speaker, the Flathead County GOP found their own conservative nutjob to speak at their annual dinner. With the pseudo Law and Order speaker already booked, the Flathead GOP went to the next best thing: a pseudo intellectual and convicted felon!
Dinesh D’Souza, a man so off his rocker that he ignores 50 years of public policy history to declare the Democrats the TRUEEEEEEEE racist party, was invited up to the Flathead to speak.
While they fancy themselves the defenders of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and everything free in between–including the amount of sauces you can get at the local bigoted ChicFilA–the Flathead County GOP seems to have skipped over the First Amendment.
In desperate search for a safe space to protect their snowflake views, the Flathead GOP banned two media outlets from attending their event. Freedom of the press apparently falls below freedom to say dumb stuff and have no one outside of your worldview challenge you.
According the Montana Public Radio the organizers decided only to allow a reporter from the Daily Interlake in to the event. According to MTPR:
Skees added that as a private event, Flathead Republicans could choose who could buy a ticket.
It would appear that these little snowflakes need their safe space to hold their event. Can’t have the big bad media report on the crazy things that are said at their event.
For such champions of the Constitution one would think they’d remember the First Amendment includes the freedom of the press.
