Larry Harris, of Willcox, Arizona, terrorized 11 National Guardsmen transporting COVID-19 vaccine to Matador, Texas, on Monday morning.

According to WAFB, Harris followed 3 vans in Lubbock, Texas, attempting several times to run them off the road. Eventually, he swerved into their path and stopped the vans.

Identifying himself as a “detective,” he ordered the unarmed Guardsmen out of the vans demanding to search the vehicles. He later told authorities he believed the vans were carrying a kidnapped woman and child.

All of the guardsmen were in full uniform.

Police say Harris was in possession of a loaded Colt 1911 pistol .45 Caliber along with an additional loaded magazines.

Harris was taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, unlawful restraint of 11 National Guard Soldiers, unlawful carrying of a weapon, impersonating a Public Servant, and interference with Texas Military Forces.

Eric Williams, Idalou Police Chief, said in a statement that Harris “appeared to be mentally disturbed.”

 

40 Republicans Vote Against QAnon Rep’s Delay Motion

The day after QAnon Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) was stripped of her committee assignments due to spreading conspiracy theories and racist dogma, Greene began offering random motions to adjourn the legislative sessions of the House of Representatives just to obstruct the work of the day.

She did it again today.

From the Washington Post:

Her repeated motions to adjourn legislative debate over the past several weeks have forced members to scramble to the House floor and vote to remain in session, a move that is infuriating Democrats and, increasingly, members of her own party.

On Wednesday, she moved to adjourn as the House was preparing to debate the coronavirus relief package. The motion was defeated, with 40 Republicans joining Democrats in opposing it.

That marked the fourth time in recent weeks that Greene moved to adjourn. Each time, the number of Republicans voting against her increased, including some of the chamber’s most conservative members on Wednesday.

Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) told reporters he may propose a rule that only members of committees (which Greene is not) can make a motion to adjourn.

QAnon Rep. Greene Scrubbing Years Of Social Media Posts

As more and more disturbing clips of freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene keep surfacing, several outlets are reporting Greene is quickly and quietly scrubbing her social media of her many inflammatory posts.

From CNN:

Searches of Greene’s Facebook show the posts from 2018 and 2019 have been removed. Links saved by CNN’s KFile during a review of hundreds of posts and comments from Greene’s Facebook page are no longer available.

Greene is facing backlash for her conspiratorial social media posts after CNN reported she indicated support for executing prominent Democrats in Facebook comments and videos.

The freshman congresswoman from Georgia also deleted videos she posted on Facebook Live where she said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is “guilty of treason” and that she will “suffer death or she’ll be in prison” for her “treason.”

QAnon/GOP Rep Publicly Supported Violence On Dem Politicians

A review of hundreds of Facebook posts by freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) reveals repeated support for executing prominent Democratic politicians in 2018 and 2019 before being elected to Congress.

From CNN:

In one post, from January 2019, Greene liked a comment that said “a bullet to the head would be quicker” to remove House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In other posts, Greene liked comments about executing FBI agents who, in her eyes, were part of the “deep state” working against Trump.

In one Facebook post from April 2018, Greene wrote conspiratorially about the Iran Deal, one of former President Barack Obama’s signature foreign policy achievements. A commenter asked Greene, “Now do we get to hang them ?? Meaning H & O ???,” referring to Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Greene replied, “Stage is being set. Players are being put in place. We must be patient. This must be done perfectly or liberal judges would let them off.”

There’s much more at the link. I encourage you to read the full article.

When asked about the comments, Greene posted a statement to her Twitter account that read, in part, “Over the years I’ve had teams of people manage my pages. Many posts have been liked. Many posts have been shared. Some did not represent my views.”

Oh, I see…it’s not her fault. She’s not to be held responsible for what occurs on her own social media accounts. It’s ‘other people’ to blame.

CNN also found footage of Greene harassing David Hogg, one of the survivors of the deadly Parkland shooting. Greene reportedly spread a conspiracy theory that Hogg was a “bought and paid little pawn” in calling for commonsense gun control measures.

She also called the mass shooting a ‘false flag’ event.

This is from before her time in Congress, but is this what she did with her time? Follow and harass a high school student? This video was recorded just weeks after the shooting incident.

Nut-Job Predicts Democrats Will Shoot Republicans To Suppress GOP Voter Turnout

Virulently anti-LGBTQ ‘citizen reporter’ and far-right nut job Rick Wiles told his TV audience today on the TruNews program that Democrats plan to begin killing Republicans in an effort to suppress GOP voter turnout in 2020.
Far-right Nutjob Rick Wiles

Virulently anti-LGBTQ ‘citizen reporter’ and far-right nut job Rick Wiles told his TV audience on the TruNews program that Democrats plan to begin killing Republicans in an effort to suppress GOP voter turnout in 2020.

I kid you not.

Declaring the Democratic Party a “terrorist organization,” Wiles called Democrats everything from “demonic” to “baby killers.”

“The Democrats are now stalking members of the Trump administration,” Wiles said. “My friends, I’m telling you there is a day coming, perhaps this year, they’re going to shoot members of the Cabinet, they’re going to shoot members of the House and Senate.”

“The Democrats have lost their minds, they’ve gone insane,” he added. “We have to put bodyguards around our elected officials to protect them from Democrats? At what point do you charge the Democratic Party with being a terrorist organization?”

“The Left has gone berserk. They’ve already crossed the line,” he railed. “They’ve already lost their senses – They’re willing to do anything and killing is the next thing that they’ll do.”

“Don’t forget the Democratic Party stated the first civil war,” said Wiles as he continued his rant. “The Democrats will start the second Civil War to protect abortion.”

“They’re fanatical baby killers. Anybody that would kill a baby would kill you. They want to kill babies, of course they’ll kill you. They’re crazy. They’re demonic.”

“Mark my words,” Wiles hissed. “They’re going to kill Republicans and by 2020, on election day, they’re going to kill Republican voters, they’re going to block Republicans from voting.”

Wiles has previously said ebola could “solve” America’s problem with gays; declared the Las Vegas mass shooting was carried out by a super secret gay nazi death squad; that the city of Houston was punished by God with Hurricane Harvey because they love LGBT sexual perversion; and that gay Nazis control America.

Watch the crazy loony-toons below.

Whack-Job Flip Benham: Roy Moore Dated Teenagers Because Of Their “Purity”

Flip Benham

You must stop, drop and scroll down to listen to this spectacular crash and burn by right-wing, ultra-conservative, anti-LGBT activist Flip Benham.

Flip called in to speak with Alabama radio hosts Matt Murphy and Andrea Lindenberg on their “Matt & Aunie” show about the ongoing controversey with GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore.

Benham attempts to defend Moore by saying when Moore returned from serving in Vietnam all the women he might have married were already married, so he started dating teenagers because “purity.”

I know, I know…

Via Right Wing Watch:

“I think that, number one, you need to understand, 40 years ago, what the Sitz im Leben was like in Alabama. Judge Roy Moore graduated from West Point and then went on into the service, served in Vietnam and then came back and was in law school. All of the ladies, or many of the ladies that he possibly could have married were not available then, they were already married, maybe, somewhere.

“So he looked in a different direction and always with the [permission of the] parents of younger ladies. He did that because there is something about a purity of a young woman, there is something that is good, that’s true, that’s straight and he looked for that.”

Then the radio hosts point out a few facts Benham didn’t bother to know and it all goes off the rails.

Benham gets so defensive he won’t stop talking as Andrea says, “You can keep talking over me but no one will hear you.”

Seriously, you have to listen to this.

Pickle-Gate: InfoWars Alex Jones Isn’t Buying Hillary’s Incredible Feat Of Strength

InfoWars nut Alex Jones apparently took 7 minutes this week to dissect and dismantle the serious controversy of “Pickle-Gate,” which began when Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was challenged – and succeeded – in opening a jar of pickles on Jimmy Kimmel’s show to prove she’s strong enough to be president.

But Alex isn’t buying it. Seven full minutes, including slow motion views of the pickle “can” Hillary opened, were taken to explore how on earth Hillary could achieve such an amazing feat of strength.

Like all good comedy, when you start based in reality then veer into absurdity, this gets pretty funny.

Christian Activist: Hillary Clinton “Needs To Be Put To Death” For Being A Witch

JoeMyGod points to this lovely display of “good Christian love” from anti-LGBT activist, Ted Shoebat:

“We need judges who uphold the death penalty for evildoers,” he said. “We need judges who would uphold the death penalty for those, not just murderers, obviously murderers deserve death, I think most people would agree with that. But you also have other people who deserve the death penalty, not necessarily murderers; people who are involved in witchcraft, who promote witchcraft. Witchcraft is very, very dangerous, very demonic and look how much destruction it has caused in the United States.

“Look at Hillary Clinton. That’s a witch that needs to be arrested and put to death. Most definitely. As the scriptures says, I believe in Leviticus, ‘Thou shall not suffer a witch to live.’ Homosexuals also need to be put to death, because it is evil, it is demonic and it is against human nature.”
