Goat Killer says his critics are domestic enemies of America

by: Eric B.

Mon Jan 27, 2014 at 13:42:15 PM EST


I give you the continued face of the Michigan Republican Party.

“There is a movement to silence the conservative voice in the GOP," Agema said. "Your voices must be heard. Principles matter. When we deviate from our principles, we’re going to lose this country.

“(As a U.S. Air Force pilot) I was prepared to die to defend our Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, and my opinion is we have domestic enemies at this present time. We’re starting to become what I used to fight against."

This is the same Goat Killer who, by the way, extolled the common sense of Russia's laws allowing the government to jail people pushing for equal rights for homosexuals. What does he have to say about Freedom of Speech?

“This is going on through the United States. You’ve got a small minority of people who are basically shutting down freedom of speech because they speak the loudest, they holler the loudest," Agema told MLive after the breakfast. "The easiest thing for me to do is just say, ‘I don’t need the hassle,’ because it doesn’t pay a dime. But all the support I have says, ‘Don’t give up, Dave. We put you in there for a reason. You’re supporting the grassroots and we want that voice heard at the RNC.'

Goat Killer, still a victim of the LGBT Gestapo.

Tail Gunner Dave (4.00 / 2)
Maybe he'll fly his plane to Wheeling, West Virginia, denounce America's "enemies from within," and brandish a list of 205 known Communists. Hey, it worked for this guy.

A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul.

Someone should do an Agema countdown clock (4.00 / 3)
Ticking off how many minutes (hours, days, months, years) go by before the leader of the Republican Party in Michigan, Gov. Rick Snyder, comes out from under his blanky and calls for Agema's ouster.  Not resignation. Ouster.  

Bet the over (4.00 / 4)
Snyder is deathly afraid of offending the Tea Party. Don't forget that 70 percent of the delegates to the GOP state convention voted to oust Saul Anuzis and replace him with Tail Gunner Dave.

A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul.

This is the Dave I know (4.00 / 3)
I almost didn't know what to think when I heard an almost contrite David, last week.  That's right, idiot, double down on Teh Krazee.  

Yes, the poor, discriminated against majority.  More sinned against than sinning.  What a piece of work.


Taking some Umbrage here... (4.00 / 2)
Dave, I swore the same gorram oath you did, and I do NOT accept your perverse opinion that I, my friends or anyone who doesn't agree with your extreme views are "domestic enemies."

And what's truly perverse -- Bizarro World, Cloud Cuckoo Land bass-ackwards -- is that YOU represent that "small minority of people" who "holler the loudest."

YOU, Dave Agema, with your position as an elected leader of the Republican Party, a notoriety that grants you instant access to print, broadcast and social media, and a big chorus of Tea Partiers ready to echo your blatherings (and in isolated cases, act on them), can shout your bigotry much louder than a mere private citizen like me.

To what goal? Apparently your end state is to impose strict right wing Christianist values on women, religious minorities, the LGBT community and "fellow travelers" that, if ever implemented, WOULD shut down THEIR freedoms of speech, religion, assembly, due process, privacy and all the rest.
