You just knew Missouri state rep Justin Hill would finally get the praise he deserves.
Calling it ‘cancel culture’ when good people refuse to stand silently by while you work to destroy the country allows you to pretend that you didn’t wreck your own life.
Your life is still wrecked, though.
They are always the victims. Always. An entire political movement built partially on a refusal to take personal responsibility for anything, to feel constantly ignored, put upon, persecuted. They are addicted to feeling like victims.
What he is referring to as ‘cancel culture’ is more accurately ‘consequences culture.’ In other words, your actions, who you support, and what you say have consequences, and sometimes they may not be to your liking. This is also called “adult culture.”
What happened to personal responsibility?
Cancel Culture is the GOP wanting to cancel the election and disenfranchise millions of voters.
Why should this be surprising to this guy? I wouldn’t knowingly do business with a Nazi, a KKK member, etc. You either believe in markets & capitalism or you don’t. The market is solving the problem. Now let’s hope this post goes viral and he loses even more business.
We feel for you, snowflake.
“Cancel culture” is a funny way of spelling “consequences of actions.”
I’m not understanding the correlation. How is firing your insurance agent for insurrection “cancel culture”?
You take the ride, you pay the price.
It’s almost as if siding with insurrectionists to overthrow the legitimate government of the United States makes you unpopular or something. That’s so unfair.
I’m old enough to remember when people like that used to complain that the problem with society today is that young people today are growing up without rules and consequences.
He literally took part in trying to cancel the votes of 81,283,485 people, 51.4% of votes cast.
Who would want to do business with an American traitor?
Cancel culture? Maybe simply principled customers with freedom to choose where they spend their money.
It’s not cancel culture. It’s called accountability.
There are consequences to be seditionist. You’ll just have to live with them.
You made your choice, buddy.
One of my favorite sayings:
“You can have anything you want in life, as long as you’re willing to pay the price.”

Your profile says you’re a proud grandpa. I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt (though it’s not mine to give) and say you didn’t know he was quoting his son.
Be a human and apologize. Show your grandkids how a stand up guy behaves.
Happy New Year.
Mr. Rone, if your grandkids are handling your tweets, you ought to inform them this type of response (“Who cares”) is petty and rude. At a minimum, whoever is tweeting these zingers should at least use punctuation. I’m left wondering who is “Who” or is it WHO?
He must have been a terrific teacher
You do, Don
Howdy, Don. I care. And apparently over 700 people who liked Jason’s tweet care. For context: That’s equivalent to more than half of the followers you have accumulated since Joining Twitter over six years ago. Take a page from the wife of your party’s leader… Be Best.
You seem nice, especially for a former teacher and pround grandpa.
I don’t know you but judging by your Twitter account, you seem like the kind of scum who needs to be voted out.
Apparently you do…cranky old bastard
Nice response to a kid. What’s your next act? Kicking a puppy?
Good grief crusty ol guy.
You sound like a great state rep…rude and pointless.
You’re an ass.
Are you 10 years old? Good hell dude, you’re ancient…. grow up.
Republicans are spiraling past the point of no return. They’re all throwing temper tantrums like little children because they’re cult leader lost.

SECOND EXTRAORDINARY SESSION OF THE
SECOND REGULAR SESSION
House Resolution No. 2
100TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY
INTRODUCED BYREPRESENTATIVE HILL.
1241H.03I DANA RADEMAN MILLER, Chief Clerk
WHEREAS, the President of the United States has immense enumerated powers and serves as both the head of the executive branch of government of the United States and as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces; and
WHEREAS, the election of the President of the United States should be free and fair in order to preserve the legitimacy of the government, avoid constitutional crisis, and promote the general welfare of the people of the United States; and
WHEREAS, the legislatures of the states are delegated primary responsibility to ensure that free and fair elections for the office of the Presidency of the United States are held under Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution of the United States which allows each state to appoint presidential Electors in such manner as the legislature thereof may direct; and
WHEREAS, the Congress of the United States is authorized under Amendment XII of the Constitution of the United States and the Electoral Count Act of 1887 to independently evaluate whether or not free and fair elections have occurred and to uphold the fundamental principle that the laws governing elections that are enacted by the legislatures of the states prior to the election are fully complied with during the election process; and
WHEREAS, historically low absentee ballot rejection rates occurred in the 2020 election despite the overwhelming new and unprecedented use of absentee ballots and mail in votes by many different persons and organizations; and
WHEREAS, a razor thin margin favoring Biden was reported in the days after election day in many swing states including Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia, Arizona, and Nevada and political analyst Robert Barnes observed that Trump would win the election if any historical absentee ballot analysis process and rejection rate was assumed;
WHEREAS, statistically abnormal vote counts were reported in numerous states late on election night and the Biden-to-Trump ratio in reporting was 90 percent or more for some batches of votes;
WHEREAS, the manifest lack of any absentee ballot and mail in ballot oversight by unelected election administrators shows that the laws passed prior to election day were likely ignored and violated in numerous ways and that this violation was of significant magnitude to change the results for the election of the President of the United States; and
WHEREAS, in Pennsylvania 23,000 absentee ballots have impossible return dates, 86,000 absentee ballots are questionable, 50,000 votes held on 47 USB cards are missing in Delaware County, and signature matching for mail in ballots has been rendered impossible by the destruction of ballot envelopes; and
WHEREAS, in Georgia, Matt Braynard’s Voter Integrity Project estimates that 20,312 nonresidents cast ballots, there is video evidence of the statistical anomalies that occurred when Biden overtook President Trump with 89 percent of the votes counted, and for 53 different individual batches of votes counted, Biden led by the same 50.05 to 49.95 percent margin in every single batch; and
WHEREAS, a full and fair investigation of the election results, including analysis of absentee and mail in ballot samples for compliance with state election law, is necessary to ensure a free and fair election and should be conducted by Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia, Arizona, and Nevada:
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the members of the House of Representatives of the one Hundredth General Assembly, Second Extraordinary Session, hereby have no faith in the validity of the results of the 2020 presidential election reported by the states of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia, Arizona, and Nevada; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that if a full and fair investigation is not completed, that the United States Congress sitting in joint session refuse to accept electoral votes for the office of President of the United States from the states of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia, Arizona, and Nevada; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Chief Clerk of the Missouri House of Representatives be instructed to prepare a properly inscribed copy of this resolution for each house of the United States Congress.
These people really are that stupid.
Uh, Robert Barnes (whatever non-entity he is) is not the arbiter of any election in this country.
Uh, Matt Braynard (whatever non-entity he is) is not the arbiter of any election in this country.

Hi, my name is Jess and I’m running for HD1 in Northwest MO. I’ve been told I can’t win, but I don’t play to lose—ever. I’m a mom, teacher, rural Missourian, and a fighter. I believe every Missourian deserves representation.
[….] 1:06 PM · Nov 22, 2020
I believe in fully-funded schools in Missouri. I will fight for teacher salaries across the state and especially those in rural areas that are hard hit by teacher turnover. Rural kids deserve great schools and rural teachers deserve a livable salary.
I believe in common sense gun laws. I believe 2A. I am a gun owner and will fight for the rights of gun owners while understanding the responsibility that comes with ownership. We need universal background checks and safe storage requirements.
I believe in healthcare for all Missourians. I will fight for rural healthcare systems and make sure that all Missourians have access to affordable and quality healthcare. This starts with Medicaid expansion and keeping kids on the Medicaid role.
I will listen to and fight for all Missourians—our children, our seniors, our neighbors. Can you help me kickstart my campaign today with a donation? I’m so excited—help send me to Jeff City. Thank you!

As I complete my six years in the Missouri legislature, I have made the difficult decision to forego my final term in the Missouri House of Representatives. Instead, I will join Senator-elect Greg Razer (D-Kansas City) as his Chief of Staff. While this was a difficult decision to make, I am confident it is the right decision and I am excited about this opportunity. Allow me to explain my decision.
I have served six years in a super-minority party to which I remain committed. With my focus on the state’s budget, my attention to crafting policies that push our state forward, and my desire to forge relationships built on trust, I feel strongly that I have been an effective representative for the 45th District. I am very proud of my work expanding access to telehealth services, which has proven critical during the pandemic. I am proud of my six years’ work on the Budget Committee, and for the 3.5 years serving as the Ranking Minority Member, delving into the state’s budget and finding ways to appropriate funding for our shared priorities.
Mostly, I am proud of my work helping constituents navigate state government. As important as it is to affect state policy, working with the people of the District has been the most rewarding part of the job. The relationships I have developed across the District, the city of Columbia, and Boone County have made me a better person and a better representative.
Serving in a super-minority has been very challenging, but it has not prevented me from finding ways to be effective. I have focused my time and energy on opening new pathways for communication, while building trust inside the Capitol and across the three branches of government in order to have a seat at the table and impact public policy. In the age of term limits, the seat that I have worked hard to attain and honor to the very best of my ability is two short years from being pulled out from under me.
Term limits, especially when reduced to eight years in Missouri’s House and Senate, work against good governance and do nothing to improve it. Speaking from direct experience, it has taken me six years to earn the respect needed to be an effective member of a super-minority and to feel confident in my ability to serve in this important role. The state budget alone requires years of experience in order to fully understand its complexity. The six years that I have taken to study and dissect the budget, to understand its implications and ramifications, will have been lost because of term limits, forcing yet another newly elected representative to repeat the process, without ever having gained an in-depth understanding or achieved the necessary expertise and continuity to craft sound budgetary policy. The lack of institutional knowledge by elected officials in the House is obvious. We train up members of the General Assembly only to indiscriminately kick them out the door as they hit their stride. This is not good for democracy and it is not ideal for effective governing.
In order to continue to build on the foundation I have built over the last six years and ensure my continued ability to impact policy in Missouri, I am humbled to accept the offer made by Senator-elect Razer to serve as his Chief of Staff. Senator-elect Razer and I have worked together for the past four years in the Missouri House. We have shared interests in policy and priorities. Senator-elect Razer is a True Son of the University of Missouri and he was literally Truman the Tiger. It is important to me that he will continue to be a champion for higher education, especially for Mizzou. Undoubtedly, we will have policy disagreements from time to time, but rest assured that I will do my best to advise him in continuing to make decisions that are in the best interest of Missouri.
It has been my absolute honor to serve my constituents as representative of the 45th District. I know my decision will upset some, and I understand. But I ask that you please know my decision is made in good faith as a way to continue the work that I started six years ago. I am no less committed today than at the beginning of my first term to serving the people of Missouri. I hope to return to elected office in the future, if the voters agree. Now, I am ready to become Chief of Staff for Senator-elect Razer and work hard for Missourians in a new way.
I’m Ashley Aune and I’m running for state representative in Missouri’s 14th house district. If we haven’t met yet it may be because campaigning looks a little different these days. But it’s more important than ever to elect someone who will do whatever it takes to represent you. As a business owner and lifelong Kansas Cityian I’ll bring a unique perspective to the Missouri legislature, one that focuses on creating and nurturing opportunities for economic success, both for our families and our business community.
As your state rep I want to be a voice for progress in the Northland. You can trust me to fight for the best educational opportunities for all our children, quality affordable health care access to keep our families and workforce strong, a fair and transparent government that works for everyone, protections for the workers and union members who move our economy forward, and a balanced approach to ensuring the safety of our families in the face of crime, gun violence, and inequality.
