No one should be surprised the GOP is colluding with right-wing violent groups to harm Americans.

The surprise here is that finally, one got caught.


Quote:
Republican Representative Matt Shea discussed violent attacks and surveillance with rightwingers

A Washington state Republican politician took part in private discussions with rightwing figures about carrying out surveillance, “psyops” and even violent attacks on perceived political enemies, according to chat records obtained by the Guardian.

The group included Jack Robertson, who broadcasts a far-right radio show, Radio Free Redoubt, under the alias “John Jacob Schmidt”. The chat also included Anthony Bosworth, whose history includes a public altercation with his own daughter and bringing guns to a court house. Bosworth participated in the 2016 occupation of the Malheur national wildlife refuge, reportedly at Shea’s request. The men proposed to confront leftists – whom they repeatedly refer to as “communists” and “Antifa” – with a suite of tactics, including violence.

Even if this is true, which is questionable coming from the Guardian, it pales in comparison to the weaponization of the federal government by the Obama administration against conservatives.

Examples?

I'm going to guess you are talking about Kim Davis, correct?

Wearing a MAGA hat is a first amendment right. When a person openly flaunts his/her racism by wearing that hat, don't be surprised when other people also exercise their 1st amendment rights and say something.
