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.There are currently no comments highlighted.
