"Senator" Robert "Needed Killin'" Wagner Chats About Campaigns Past and Present
Senator Robert "Needed Killin'" Wagner, Vermont secessionist candidate for one of Addison County's senate seats, likes to maintain a big, restricted (as in the old 30s, 40s and 50s meaning of the term as it applies to Jews) tent on his Facebook page.
I found this gem of a chat from his 2010 campaign in his Facebook photo album:
Is Wagner an anti-Semite like his secesher allies who post articles from known anti-Semites at their websites Second Vermont Republic and Vermont Commons where Wagner also maintains a tad unhinged blog? Certainly responding to an obviously anti-Semitic remark about the "Jew Mafia" uncritically has to make one think that Wagner is courting such support and, perhaps, more than a little sympathetic himself to the notion that Jews operate like a criminal enterprise that controls courts, the government and media.
Now, as if to show that his delusions about elections haven't progress much beyond the muddled state that they were in two years ago, here's the most recent post from his Facebook page today:
On the world where Wagner lives it's of no importance that Vermont legislators have no legal authority, nor can they assert same, over Vermont Army and Air National Guard assignments. Wagner sees politics as a game where the greatest ape who beats his chest hardest prevails.
Given that Sen. Claire Ayer (D-Addison) has been the number one vote getter for years and that Wagner seems only to be capable of locking up the 4% of drooling idiots who mistake bluster for competence, it'll be interesting to see what this year's results look like. Wagner may do a little better since there is no Republican in the race thus far and some Republicans can't ever vote for a Democrat, whether it be Sen. Ayer or her fellow Dem in the race, former Rep. Chris Bray. But we do know that Republicans will vote for idiots (read: Bush), so Wagner may pick up a few votes there. That is, unless the Republicans learn that Wagner backs an economic policy based on the confiscatory Henry George/Karl Marx model. Wagner's plans for private property in Vermont make Stalin's own actions look benign.
And, of course, Wagner's statement about his neighbor, Rep. Willem Jewett (D-Ripton), is utterly nonsensical in that Rep. Jewett is running unopposed in 2012. Maybe Wagner'll get a few people to write in his name for representative in the August 28 Republican primary for representative from Ripton. Why not? His sole secessionist running mate from up in Franklin County, Peter Moss, is also running for the U.S. Senate in addition to the Vermont Senate. Wagner wouldn't have a chance of winning either the senate or the representative seats but it'd sure give him a practical gauge of what his Ripton neighbors think of his nutty economics.
Meanwhile, in another matter related to Wagner's conflicting positions, there's been no word yet about whether Wagner will be returning the $288.30 Federal subsidy he received while flying out of the airport in Rutland, VT, which is exactly the kind of Federal subsidy that he "is strongly opposed to" and has argued harms Vermonters that I revealed he'd hypocritically availed himself of (as in sticking his snout in the federal money trough) here. Wagner must publicly give back that subsidy money or he'll be exposed for the hypocritical fraud that many of us Vermonters know him to be.
