Conservative Critics of Government Are 'Freaks' Who 'Will Need Kevlar'

By Mark J. Fitzgibbons

Conservative critics of government are “freaks,” are “in for a pretty rough ride,” and “will need their Kevlar,” i.e., bullet-proof vests.

These statements didn’t come from the Obama administration or some radical leftwing organization. They are Facebook posts of a Republican elected official in Virginia’s Fauquier County.

Fauquier drew national attention in 2012 for charging farmer Martha Boneta with violating the law by having a birthday party for eight little girls without a permit and zoning site plan.

The highly charged posts of county supervisor Holder Trumbo came shortly after two recent events, and are emblematic of the civil war taking place within the GOP in Virginia and nationally.

One event was bipartisan passage of a Virginia state law that limits how and when local governments may require permits for farm sales and activities. Boneta and her supporters pushed for this law that gives consumers the choice of buying produce directly from farmers without red tape. The law is an embarrassing defeat for Fauquier County as well as the Virginia Association of Counties that lobbied on the taxpayers’ dime to protect zoning power abuses.

The other event was an election of Fauquier County’s GOP chairman and other members of the local party committee. The race for chairman was between a tea party proponent and the man supported by Trumbo and members of the Piedmont Environmental Council (PEC), a 501(c)(3) organization. Boneta had sued Trumbo, other county officials, and the PEC for collaborating to harm her by shutting down her farm under threats of fines of up to $15,000 per day.

Democrat Peggy Richardson, a former IRS Commissioner and friend of Hillary, sits on the board of the PEC. Martha Boneta was audited by the IRS after taking on the PEC. When news broke that one Fauquier County elected official was aware of the audit before Martha was, the farmer’s home was vandalized.

It was in this tinderbox setting that the recent county GOP committee election took place, but was made even more controversial after county Democrats supported the slate aligned against conservatives. The anti-conservative candidates for this GOP committee included Democrat donors and a board member of the Virginia League of Conservation Voters, which donates heavily to Democrats.

At the polling location, one of the conservatives running for the GOP committee was told she “would regret ever coming into this county and [her] days here would not be long.” She is a 10-year resident of the county, whereas the candidate for chairman backed by Trumbo and his bully allies has been in the county less than a year.

Establishment Republican Trumbo’s gloating Facebook posts speak to his allies, and reveal in unfiltered ways a crude and obnoxious elitism:

These freaks are out to overturn the will of the voters, rule from outside the county, and establish their rule that anyone who disagrees with them (or has most of their original teeth) is not capable of participating in their own destiny. Facebook friends, are you going to let this happen?

Why can't you face the fact that no one here wants what you're selling and remember when it comes to lies, your little cult practically invented the concept in Fauquier. Loser!

Is this writer an idiot? The only thing this is emblematic of is that the Rats and establishment are loading Primaries with fake GOP'ers to taint elections. I just posted a Red State piece where a fake GOP'er is running in a FL House race. This is their new tactic since they have been thoroughly discredited on the issues.
