Say wasn't John Wayne Gacy an activist in the Democratic party in Illinois? Does this somehow taint all Democrats in your eyes?

Some people have to believe what is make believe you know! or they could not exist. They have to sort of talk them selves into believing that which is not true, to make themselves feel so much better.
There are whackos out there itching to gun someone down. They are from both party's, all races, different genders, and relgions. Another words many people are nutcases, has nothing to do with one party or another, bogus lies. Anone can become a controversy.
Sorry to say in todays worls we live in, we live amongst many crackpots, they come from all backgrounds, all races, different genders, and relgions, does not matter to a crackpot.

Thank you. It is nice to see someone from the Left make a post like this.

There is no Republican or conservative that would allow or stomach a Nazi or liberal in their ranks.
Could someone be a nut, hide who they really were like the homosexual pedophiles did when seeking to be priests in the Catholic Church? Sure!

What about the JT Ready connection to Russell Pearce? Pearce was AZ Senate President and one of the leaders of the AZ GOP. He was told by the Anti Defamation League that JT Ready was a neo-Nazi a couple of years before he ended their relationship when the media began to put pressure on him. In the intervening time period, Pearce endorsed Ready's candidacy for city council, attended his LDS baptism and helped make him an elder in his own LDS church. So you are clearly wrong when you say that NO Republican or conservative would stomach a Nazi in their ranks.

Thank you so very much for your sincere honesty, it is so warm and refreshing. Very rare coming from a Democrat on this Forum.

I truly beleive that people from both sides of the aisle, feel the need to politicize tragedies, and why, nothing more then for their own political gain.
Neither party as i can see it has Saints! and niether comes without their fair share of guilt.

Default Is the OP lying or making things up?

Where does the OP find the "GOP supporter" mention in the story? I see nothing in the article addressing party affiliation.

So explain how "Liberals" are comparable to Nazis now? Considering most "Conservatives" have more in common with them socially & politically?

Because Nazis believed in the free market and gun rights for citizens, eh?

Exactly. He had been among the ranks for a long time with the AZ GOP. If it wasn't for the media heat once they found out his neo-nazi ties, he likely would still be in office right now (minus the heinous murders he committed of course)
