Bacon Bits: Politicians Behaving Badly

Amanda Chase anti-vaxxer. Republican gubernatorial candidate Amanda Chase, R-Chesterfield, has famously refused to wear face masks. Now, if a report from the liberal/left The Daily Beast can be believed, she will refuse to to get vaccinated. She would “absolutely not” get a shot because “many of the vaccines are actually manufactured in China,” she told a reporter. Aside from the fact that her information about the China connection is inaccurate, I wonder if Chase is experiencing any cognitive dissonance from the fact that she’s on the same side as leftist anti-vaxxers who spurn the COVID-19 vaccine because it was approved by the administration of her hero Donald Trump. Look, from a philosophical standpoint, I’m primed to be sympathetic to any politician who embraces small-government conservatism and individual liberties. But public policy positions need to be grounded in accurate facts and real data.

Hey, at least he’s acting out his values! A Fauquier County man who ran for Prince William County seats in Congress and the House of Delegates as a self-described “red pill libertarian” was arrested in Denver last week for allegedly coaxing a 12-year-old girl to send him pornographic images and sneak away from home to join him on a flight back to Virginia, reports the Prince William Times. Nathan Daniel Larson faces felony charges for kidnaping, child abduction, soliciting child pornography from a minor and meeting a child for the intention of sex. Larson previously was convicted of threatening to kill President George George Bush. As a convicted felon, he was barred from seeking state office in Virginia until Governor Terry McAuliffe restored voting rights to thousands of felons in 2016. According to Wikipedia, he admitted to raping his ex-spouse… who was transgender and committed suicide after the birth of their daughter. He advocates positions from the legalization of marijuana and child pornography to “benevolent white supremacy.” Seriously, dude, if anything, if your life history proves anything, it is the degeneracy of the white race.

Watch those social media posts! Robert Erhhart, a former King William County board of supervisor member and now a candidate for county treasurer, has gotten himself in hot water over his social media posts. The Tidewater Review cites a profanity-laden post referring to the county’s 2020 budget process. The newspaper also pointed out “homophobic” posts such as one in which he said of the Women’s National Basketball Association, “Who the hell goes to watch the WNBA anyway? I guess it’s a bunch of lesbians going to watch.” Ehrhart says that his personal views toward gays would not affect his conduct in elected office. Moral of the story: If you want to run for public office, be very careful what you say online. It will come back to haunt you.

  1. Its almost like people who are attracted to power of political office are psychopaths

  2. I would venture to guess that Nathan Daniel Larson is a product of his Virginia upbringing. Raise a kid in a cesspool, what do you expect to happen?

  3. Politicians ( BOS members) in SWVA have said far worse than the King William candidate. Unfortunately they are still in office and continue to post ugly things on Facebook. It is embarrassing !

  4. re: who doesn’t want vaccination:

    ” Republicans four times more likely than Democrats not to get COVID-19 vaccine: poll

    An ABC News-Ipsos poll found that a respondent’s party identification was directly related to their willingness to take the vaccine. A total of 26 percent of Republican respondents said they would never get the COVID-19 vaccine, compared with 6 percent of Democrats and 14 percent of independents.

    So Chase is channelling the GOP?

    What does Cox say?

  5. Prince William County Libertine Party?

    Yeah, attendance is thin, but I just figured it for people unimpressed by dunks.

  6. Amanda Chase “jumped the shark” when she advocated martial law. There is no way I can ever again take anything she says seriously.

    • Speaking of sharks. A friend sent me a sure fire way to tell if there are sharks in the water. Take a shot glass, wade out about knee deep, dunk the glass and taste the water. If it’s salty, there are sharks in the water.

      • Excellent method. Of course, even if it is not salty there is still a chance there are bull sharks in the water.

        Your friend’s test reminds me of my father’s method for identifying different kinds of snakes: If it has rattles it is a rattlesnake. If it does not have rattles it is a cobra. 🙂

  7. Let me offer some corrections:

    I have been active in the risk awareness movement (anti-vaxx) for many years and communicate with people worldwide. I can assure you that the vast majority (~95%) of anti-vaxxers are Republican, Libertarian or Independent. There are only a handful of Democrats.

    Degeneracy of the white race? How racist is that. It’s all races as it’s human nature.

    No honorable mention for Northam hauling off another statue in the dead of night?
