Hans Zeiger wants to be Washington’s next Republican State House rep. If only everyone would ignore his former claims that the Girl Scouts of America are nothing more than a lesbian-y feminist recruitment tool.
Like Christine O’Donnell, Zeiger, who is 25, would like to forget the extremist statements he made in the past. Like when he wrote in a blog post:
One might wonder why the Girl Scouts have been spared the painful attacks that have been launched upon the Boy Scouts by the Left in recent years. The reasons are simple: the Girl Scouts allow homosexuals and atheists to join their ranks, and they have become a pro-abortion, feminist training corps …. If the Girl Scouts of America can’t get back to teaching real character, perhaps it will be time to look for our cookies elsewhere.
Zeiger, however, has no problem with the Boy Scouts of America’s discrimination against gay scout masters, because hey, that’s just good fun. He’s also an Eagle Scout, which means he’s spent many years of his life working his way up in an organization that totally has nothing to do with the homosexual lifestyle — just the molesting one.
The Republican candidate has deleted as many as 50 posts from IntellectualConservative.com where he rails against the Girl Scouts — but only because they no longer represent his true beliefs and would otherwise serve as a distraction. Or a war tool for Democrats. Which it has, as this press release illustrates.
What is Hans Hiding?
More than 50 Far-Right Blog Posts Suddenly Pulled from Website Zeiger has listed as his “job”;
Out-of-Mainstream views clearly a problem for 25 year old ideologue
PUYALLUP– More than 50 far right blog posts by State House candidate Hans Zeiger were removed over the weekend from the IntellectualConservative.com website, an ideological blog Zeiger had listed as a job. The now absent posts contained Zeiger’s controversial positions on many issues, including highly divisive opinions on public education, women’s rights, and religion.
Zeiger is running against critical care nurse Dawn Morrell, a mother and grandmother whose children are graduates of local public schools.
Alex Hur of the House Democratic Campaign Committee (HDCC) said that he and members of Morrell’s campaign team noticed the missing posts Saturday. “I have to wonder what Zeiger is afraid of people reading,” said Hur. “Why are these articles disappearing now, when more voters than ever are in favor of open government and transparency in their candidates and elected officials? Voters deserve to know what a candidate’s values really are.”
Hur continued, “If Zeiger truly believes what he wrote, like, ‘I spent most of my K-12 education at my local government indoctrination center… the typical public high school graduate moves into the world devoid of character, conscience, or courage’ and ‘the PTA is now more decadent than ever’ then he should live with his words instead of hiding his out of touch opinions from voters.”

Zeiger is the author of a plethora of blog postings and two books, Reagan’s Children: Taking Back the City on the Hill and Get Off My Honor: The Assault on the Boy Scouts of America. In his various writings, he expounds on a variety of issues, including his deep appreciation for the Boy Scouts, and his obvious distaste for Girl Scouts, stating “If the Girl Scouts of America can’t get back to teaching real character, perhaps it will be time to look for our cookies elsewhere.

Hur isn’t surprised Zeiger, who moved back to Puyallup a year ago, has focused mostly on federal policy issues instead of local concerns in his prolific writings.
“He’s a guy who hasn’t had to deal with the real life concerns of local families,” said Hur. “It’s okay to be an academic, but there is nothing academic about struggling to make ends meet when a job is lost, fighting an insurance company to get needed coverage, or standing up for vets when the federal government is slow to respond. Dawn Morrell will remain true to her record of service for the people of Pierce County.”
