Okay, okay, we’ll admit that some Republicans are actually very nice people, some of them are not racists and not homophobic, and a few of them are even gay. (OR SO THEY CLAIM.)
But among Montana Republicans, John Abarr hardly stands out, even though he was once an organizer for the Ku Klux Klan.
A Montana blogger’s been busy researching Abarr’s place in the Republican party. Let’s compare and contrast, shall we?
- Abarr “wrote fliers encouraging the deportation of gay men, lesbians and Jews to create a racially pure ‘Realm of Montana.’” Meanwhile, the Montana Republican party wants to “keep homosexual acts illegal.”
- Abarr claimed that “AIDS is airborne” and that you can get HIV simply by attending a Pride rally. Montana Representative Janna Taylor recently made up a story about prison inmates transmitting AIDS by means of blowdarts.
- Abarr says his beloved KKK is “not any different than the NAACP” and expressed his wish for an “all-white society.” Meanwhile, Republican Representative James Knox recently pushed a bill that would have stripped US citizenship from the children of immigrants and Native Americans.
To be fair, a lot of Republicans want him to stop Abarr from running for office as a Republican. It is totally embarrassing! And also, redundant.
