Haters gonna hate, so let’s get this over with
Haysus in a handbasket! We elect some serious whackadoodle in this fine, fine country of ours. And I’m speaking about this dose of major whacktard: Matt Shea and his Messianic hate crime.
Now before I go on, let’s clarify
- I’ll never be an elected official (unless you count Scribe one year in summer camp when I was 11). I’m way too biased, distracted by shiny objects, and couldn’t legislate my way out of a cup of coffee.
- Did I mention I was biased? For the record, I’m Jew biased. Both Mumsie and Pa were Jews making every single cell in my body Jewish. And that is old school Jewish for all you goyim (this factors heavily later in my blathering).
- I’m not so smart. I can’t speak to lot’s of local political issues. I’m currently ok with that, but that may need changing.
And on with the post. Who the f*(k is Matt Shea and how is it he is now seeking his third term in the state House of Representatives? We really voted in someone who totally freaked out on Shawn Vestal (Spokesmanreview) on Twitter and I mean freaked. What the he!!? See for yourself:
Ohhhhhh all caps. Scary. Angry boy. And some of you, you voted for him. Care to explain that one to me? Oh wait, I don’t really think I care to know.
Now here’s the haters gonna hate part: Apparently someone painted swastikas all over some of Matt Shea’s “vote for me or else our Constitution is going to implode” signs. Hmmm, vandalism. Happens. Sucks. The signs are replaceable. Replace them. Take the higher road. Act respectably. React like a normal person. Right?
HA! In Representative Matt Shea’s twitter and email weirdness (I really should link to Shea’s blog, but I just cannot get myself to click the little chain link icon) towards Shawn Vestal (@vestal13), Matt Shea is calling this a hate crime (see image above) and plays the Messianic Jew card. WHAT THE F*&K? (See, I can do that all caps thing too, Mr. Shea). Really? Really? Get the f*%k outta here. You can call it a hate crime all you want but don’t think you lend credence to your argument laying down some Messianic Jew stuff. Hello, not Jews — see this is where things get sticky, I admit it. I’m fairly sure my tribe (see MOT) members do not believe in Jesus, his resurrection or his loaves of bread and buckets of fish. Just a thought dude. If you want to lend credence to your hate crime argument, why not cc Pride Foundation, or the JCC, or the leaders of the Sikh Temple of Spokane? Why not really try to make your point and go for the gusto, hmmmm? But I digress. And I’m missing the point of their whole argument anyway.
I’m just saying, you chose a group most like yourself to try and pump a little credence (not clearwater) in your argument. Try again.
And PS, thanks to Shawn Vestal who sent me the Washington State Legislature Malicious Harassment definition (which I did not read all of; told you, I’m one of the woefully uninformed) which includes the following as an act of a hate crime:
Defaces property of a victim who is or whom the actor perceives to be of Jewish heritage by defacing the property with a swastika.
Are you Jewish, Mr. Shea? Not with a last name like that, you’re not.
So, folkes, how about we try to vote in some sane people? And don’t accuse me of going all liberal on your a$$. No, I’m simply saying regardless of whether you swing to the left or swing to the right (Stand up, sit down, fight fight fight….I had a brief foray in to the world of cheer leading in high school before I got kicked off the squad), how about you not bring all your cray cray baggage with you and attempt to make laws based on your emotional craziness. Pretty sure, our Constitution does not need to be butchered by your whacktardness.
Alright, start your hating.
