Republican discussed violent attacks and surveillance with rightwingers

Source: The Guardian

Jason Wilson

. . .

Shea, a six-term legislator and military veteran, came to international attention in 2018 after a document he authored surfaced laying out a “biblical basis for war”, which appeared to be a plan for an apocalyptic battle with people who practiced “same sex marriage” and “abortion”, and instructed: “If they do not yield, kill all males.”

. . .

At that time, Shea lost donors, and he was stripped of his role as chair of the Republican caucus – though he was serving in this position at the time of the leaked chat.

But Shea has since regrouped, introducing bills to criminalize abortion and roll back gun laws, which other Republicans in Washington have supported. He has also continued pushing a plan for eastern Washington to secede and reconstitute as Liberty State. Robertson has also been a key architect of this campaign, and he and Shea have been regular guests on each other’s broadcasts.

Shea has long promoted conspiratorial views about the cooperation of leftists and Muslims in creating “counter-states” in the US. He has associated with conspiracy-minded far-right groups, and later this month will emcee a dinner for the anti-communist John Birch society in Couer D’Alene, Idaho.

2. Matt Shea would like to help them more but he has to be in Washington, voting to secede.



Matt Shea, surrounded by people he hopes will go out and kill all Democrats.

6. This douche is my state rep.

He's a crazy, scary asshole who is not above posting photos of his female opponent's home online and other sketchy moves. Unfortunately, even though WA is a blue state, Eastern Washington, a.k.a. Western Idaho, is scarlet red. The demographics are slowly changing, though, so hopefully we can vote his sorry ass out of office.

18. Dude, it's not the city of Spokane.

It's the Spokane suburbs. The Spokane Valley city council and mayor are just as crazy as Matt Shea. Spokane is starting to become liberal, but the suburbs are as crazy as Idaho.

10. If he was smart he wouldn't have said all the stuff in public.

I suspect he's all talk and no AR-15. It's the young people he stirs up that could be the real problem.
