Spokane GOP leader authors 'Biblical Basis for War' and death of enemies who disagree

Spokane GOP leader authors 'Biblical Basis for War' manifesto calling for end to abortion, same-sex marriage and death of enemies who disagree

A Washington state GOP politician is facing fallout after he authored a chilling “Biblical Basis for War” manifesto that calls for an end to abortions and same-sex marriage.

Matt Shea, a four-term rep from Spokane who wants the eastern half of Washington to become a 51st state called Liberty, recently admitted in a Facebook Live video that he created the document.

The four-page document, leaked online by Spokane resident Tanner Rowe, includes multiple biblical citations and says vanquished enemies must “stop all abortions,” disavow Communism, prohibit same-sex marriage and “obey Biblical law.”

“If they do not yield – kill all males,” the document reads.

Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich told The Spokesman-Review newspaper that he forwarded the manifesto to the FBI for possible investigation.

“The document Mr. Shea wrote is not a Sunday school project or an academic study,” Knezovich wrote in an email to the newspaper. “It is a ‘how to’ manual consistent with the ideology and operating philosophy of the Christian Identity/Aryan Nations movement and the Redoubt movement of the 1990s.”

2. The GOP's end game

is a fascist religious dictatorship.

Trump is not building all of these concentration camps just for border crossers. He is moving massive amounts of US military around this country as well.

Imagine the insane reaction that would occur if a democratic president was doing the same thing.

But we sit silent as Trump and the GOP build their gulag and the news media looks the other way.

3. I think it is $$$$. GOP-backed companies are profiting off of detaining children and immigrants.

Those companies need to be exposed, shamed, and removed from Federal Contracting.

4. Shout out to Tanner Rowe: THANK YOU!!!


Thank you for exposing this very dangerous "man" that obviously has let his religion rule his behavior.

I'd love to see his manifesto. Luckily the FBI will.
