Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
Honored to stand with @tperkins and receive the @FRCAction’s “True Blue” award for my unwavering commitment and support of faith, family, and freedom!

[….] The Family Research Council (FRC) bills itself as “the leading voice for the family in our nation’s halls of power,” but its real specialty is defaming LGBTQ people.
The FRC often makes false claims about the LGBTQ community based on discredited research and junk science. The intention is to denigrate LGBTQ people as the organization battles against same-sex marriage, hate crime laws, anti-bullying programs and the repeal of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.
To make the case that the LGBTQ community is a threat to American society, the FRC employs a number of “policy experts” whose “research” has allowed the FRC to be extremely active politically in shaping public debate. Its research fellows and leaders often testify before Congress and appear in the mainstream media. It also works at the grassroots level, conducting outreach to pastors in an effort to “transform the culture.” [….]
[….]Tony Perkins heads the Family Research Council, an anti-LGBT hate group located in Washington, D.C. Perkins has a sordid political history, having once purchased Klansman David Duke’s mailing list for use in a Louisiana political campaign he was managing. In 2001, Perkins gave a speech to a Louisiana chapter of the Council of Conservative Citizens, a white supremacist group.
Since joining the FRC, Perkins has taken the group in a harder anti-LGBT direction, using it to publish false propaganda about that community and contending that gay rights advocates intend to round up Christians in “boxcars.” [….]

Storming the US Capitol in a failed attempt to overthrow an election? 8:56 AM · Mar 30, 2022
Constantly whining about progressive blue states while living off of what they pay into the federal government.
This tweet, it would seem.
No joke. Every response to this tweet is a salient point that hits like a slap of reality.
Kneeling to a man who asked the Russian dictator who’s actively committing war crimes to help him overthrow a duly elected American president.
Censoring students and teachers
Policies that result in generations of Missourians unable to get a good job at a good wage because they grew up with four-day school weeks, the lowest paid teachers in America, and a Legislature more concerned with banning books than helping kids. #moleg
Putting bounty on womens heads for wanting body autonomy
Attempting to ban Missouri residents from getting abortions out of state?
Eating horse paste and drinking your own urine?
Trying to make laws about what Missourians are and are not allowed to do in other states, like access basic reproductive healthcare. #MOdeservesbetter
A 7-1 congressional map
Having an idea that snitching out your neighbors can net you some cash
Raging against big government while legislating women’s and lgbtq rights?
Perhaps that whole thing when you threaded schools and their bond funding…
We see what you did there.
Voting for MO GOP.
Decades of disinvestment in public education?
Not understanding how public bond debt works when you are a state treasurer.
Blackmailing school districts is up there.
Cutting taxes on the wealthy. That’s more stupid, but we’ve done that already.
Convincing a bunch of your voters to die from a preventable disease.
Wow, Scott. You really opened up a can of worms with that question. Maybe consider some of the answers.
The Students First Initiative aims to ensure a quality education for Missouri’s children by uncovering and eliminating curriculum and policies and practices that prioritize politics in the classroom instead of student education and success. The Attorney General’s Office urges parents to submit information about objectionable curriculum like Critical Race Theory, teacher training materials, school initiatives and speakers, administrative overreach, and other issues and practices that don’t prioritize student education and success in their children’s schools.
The Attorney General’s Office is dedicated to fighting on behalf of parents and increasing transparency in schools across Missouri.

Most of us are not in the legislature, are we also irrelevant?
He literally has 10 times the twitter followers you do LMAOOOOOO
And Jason’s are even actual people…
This isn’t the burn you think it is.
I’m sure that veterans who have homes because of Jason Kander believe Kander is relevant & doing important work. People who are feeding the hungry, helping the homeless, taking care of the sick, & teaching kids are important. You aren’t helping people & you know that.
Jason Kander @JasonKander
Replying to @Eric_Schmitt
Eric, I genuinely hope for you that you get to a place where that word means to you what it means to me. 6:27 AM · Mar 29, 2022
Jason Kander (D) [2016 file photo]
@Eric_Schmitt told a veteran doing this work he’s no longer relevant. [….]
You’ve got to be kidding! While Kander is working every day to support homeless veterans, you spend your time and our tax dollars filing frivolous lawsuits. Talk about irrelevant.
He’s… running a charity for veterans.
And you’re suing schools to help yourself get more famous..
He does more for veterans than you’ve done for Missouri, so I don’t think you want to pull at this particular cape…
If “being in legislature” is your measuring stick for relevancy, you have a lot to learn, kid.
He builds houses for veterans. Why do you hate that people help veterans?
It’s genuinely hard to tell which state has the most loathsome Republican Party, but Missouri is always high on the list.
Hey Schmitt, instead of picking fights on Twitter, maybe do your job for once?
I’ve heard of Jason Kander.
You’re trailing the guy who stole from his Veteran’s charity and you thought this was the appropriate move. Your campaign manager must think you’re a real genius.
imagine being a state attorney general and having nothing better to do at 11:43pm on a monday than bash a veteran on twitter
Lol. The lack of self awareness from Schmitt is astounding.
This is Eric Schmitt’s idea of irrelevant: A veteran working for the mental health of fellow veterans.
You’re a bad punchline. What have you done for Missouri?
Really hard to put your finger on why your polling numbers suck, isn’t it. Life’s a mystery sometimes.
What a sad little man you are.
This is not the snappy retort you think it is. You’ve only proven yourself to be a bigger douche than most thought you already were.
Eric Schmitt thought his Tweet was a good idea. Ponder that for a brief moment.

We need America First fighters who won’t cave to the woke Left. [….] 8:55 PM · Mar 26, 2022
Some of the responses:
That’s not how democracy works.
…But that’s the point.
We need representatives that realize they must help all of their constituents, not ones who only pander to their base to hold on to power.
Can you please explain what this means?
I think he means Eric Greitens
I mean, like, all of it. What’s “America First” and what does “woke Left” mean?
Precisely! A tactic used when one hopes the reader self creates their own interpretation in their brain to fit a narrative. Example: “We need a foot forward leaning battler for the people.” But what does that mean?!
So… “America First” people who hate 40% of America?
I don’t think that phrase means what you think it means.
Oh, he knows all right.
We need an AG who recognizes that his job includes more than shouting bumper sticker slogans at the internet.
We need an AG who recognizes that his job includes more than shouting Fascist bumper sticker slogans at the internet.| Fixed it for you.
We need people who want to work for their constituents, not people who pay lip service to their country whilst prostrating themselves before a political party.
No, we really don’t. We need people who are willing to work for the good of their communities.
FYI.. You sue school districts. Is that “America First”?
So you’re recruiting for a new Klan chapter in Missouri? Count me out.
Buzz word buzzz word Buzz word no policy Eric Schmitt
What the hell does this even mean?
By fighting you mean frivolous lawsuits that cost the taxpayers thousands?
We need a country where candidates better than you run for the Senate.
We need decent human beings who will do what is best for everyone not blowhard politicians that will try to out evil each other to get on Fox News.

Voter ID laws don’t prevent people from voting. They do however prevent people from cheating. 10:27 PM · Mar 25, 2022
Some of the responses:
You, of course, have evidence of massive cheating in Missouri because we don’t have a mandatory photo ID requirement.
You might think so.
Homeless people get to vote. Lots of retirees don’t have a permanent residence.
Josh Hawley doesn’t live where he votes.
Isn’t Josh Hawley (r) the third senator from Virginia?
Now can you chat with Mrs. Mark Meadows?
* it’s okay if you’re a republican
Actually, they DO keep people from being able to vote.
That’s the plan.
Why did Mark Meadows and Josh Hawley vote in states they don’t live?
See *IOKIYAR, above.
We don’t a problem with cheating. We have a problem with voter suppression
Oh yeah, voter id’s. The classic example of a solution looking for a problem.
And they disqualified Willie Nelson… even I can identify Willie Nelson.
Exactly wrong. In person voter fraud is even rarer than dying from the COVID vaccine. Voter ID disenfranchises hundreds of thousands of eligible voters. every election.
From voting yes. Cheating no
Ask Mark Meadows…he’ll tell you how to do the voter fraud
How many people have you charged with election fraud? How many convictions? #SchmiitLies
Actually they don’t. The few voter fraud cases in this state over the past several years, would not have been prevented by photo ID. Once again, you lie.
The GOP is so sad. Zero ideas. Just obstructionism and voter suppression.
When Black people vote, Republicans don’t stand a chance. Prove me wrong.
WRONG AGAIN!! They make old people get out and get IDs, they are not for FREE. Just another poll tax.
Can’t get a mail in ballot without it being notarized.
Any other BS claims you would like to share?
