In some parts of Washington State, these would all be points in his favor.

Holy shit, indeed.

America, land of the free, home of elected representatives that support biblical child terrorism training camps. And race war. In the open.

Normal exasperation doesn’t work anymore. Someone kick this racist terroristic bible thumping asshole out of office, immediately!

Indoctrinated child soldiers, because there are some things even white nationalist fuck adults won’t do.

State Reps are often nutvalls, but this guy is scary. The Pacific Northwest seems to be centre of Y’All Qaeda activity these days.

Zero points for correctly guessing this gentleman’s political party affiliation.

Bible warfare… suuuuuure. With guns, of course, 'cause ‘Murica!
And who cares about the teachings of that hippie Jesus, there’s plenty of murderizin’ to be done in the Old Testament.

Might be worth asking for more gun regulations AND Bible regulations.

Ah… Rep Matt Shea… Let’s check off the list of things that weren’t highlighted.

He’s pulled a gun on another motorist in traffic…

…and to @TheGreatParis’s point, that one happened during his re-election campaign, and he won, because his opponent had shown her boobs in playboy in college.

He’s a fan of the Bundys

He’s been accused of campaign finance violations several times (no links because my browser history has more than enough Shea in it now)

Before this, his most recent highlight is this one

Knezovich is trying to play moderate republican. He’s had things to say on gun laws, and immigration:


But he’s been vocal about Shea for years.

And he wants to separate from the Starbucks-swillin’, craft brew sippin’ grunge Gomorrah that is Seattle (and everything else west of the Cascades).

People love to think of Washington as this lefty Utopia where everybody swills Starbucks, wears plaid, sandals with socks, and groans about the weather but outside of the King County area it is largely a super red state.

I guess it’s not surprising that a guy who refuses to enforce some of the laws of his state is what passes for moderate in the GOP these days.

Eventually- the child soldiers will feel he’s sold them out - and they’ll start the most dangerous hunt.

Good luck,

In the bible, god can’t do anything when iron chariots are involved. So anything more recent than about 2500 years ago is way outside god’s scope.

This guy is personally in favor of terrorism.

Yeah, but that basically passes for mainstream around here. That’s one of his “normal” views.

Shea had already openly supported Team Rugged and appeared with child soldiers the group had trained in promotional videos, praising their training, saying, “I love the fact that you guys looked like almost an acrobatic special-forces team out there.”

Not content with taking inspiration from the Taliban, now they’re going for the Rwandan genocide too. Great.

“Team Rugged” had a Faceballs page but have either made it private or deleted it. That data is still in Google’s cache, for now. Here’s the phone number, email address and website associated with those horrible people in case anyone wants to chat with them:
