Republicans in my state are running on “Make Missouri Great Again” which is cool, but they’re the ones who’ve been in control of Missouri for two decades, so…

Auditor Galloway @AuditorGalloway
Latest monthly report on Missouri’s use of federal stimulus dollars received through CARES Act funding shows through end of August 2021, state has received $4.77 billion.

The Biden, Pelosi and Schumer agenda: Open borders and amnesty, taxpayer funded abortion, attacks on our religious liberties, job crushing regulations, billion dollar bailouts for blue states and higher taxes for you and me.

Missouri is a “blue state”. Fancy that.
You think he’ll sue to give it all back? Just asking.

Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
All Americans deserve to be treated fairly and impartially.
In July, I demanded answers from the DOJ regarding possible personal rights violations against the pretrial defendants who breached the Capitol on 1/6.
I’ve received zero response.
The DOJ’s silence is deafening.
2:06 PM · Oct 11, 2021
Hilarity ensues in the responses:
Too bad you aren’t concerned that your constituents can meet you in an open townhall forum to ask you questions about your record.
What are the possible violations you are sooooooooo concerned about?
You scared her with your hard questions Bob. I think that Warrensburg town hall was her last. How long ago was that,? 10 years?
Insurrections have consequences
Remember when you called them thugs and called for them to be punished to the full extent of the law?
Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
This is thuggery and violators must be punished to the fullest extent allowed under federal law. We cannot heal our divides as a nation if this lawlessness persists.
4:15 PM · Jan 6, 2021
She has a short memory.
Why are you giving aid and comfort to those who wish to destroy democracy?
I guess since you were complicit in the Jan 6 insurrection, you feel the need to defend these traitors, who by the way violated the personal rights of the Capitol police when they stormed the Capitol. But you were safe, weren’t you?
Hey @RepHartzler …you were just another dimestore seditionist on January 6, voting with the cop-beating mob to overturn an election. You don’t get to “demand” anything. It’s a travesty the 4th District is represented by someone so faithless to democracy.[….]
They’re still trying to comprehend your stupidity.
Seditionists have an Orwellian talent. Instead of identifying the 1/6 attackers as “accused domestic terrorists,” just call them “pretrial defendants” instead. Whatever has seized control of the GOP must above all else keep the money grift going for the next campaign. [….]

In 1492 the “consensus” among scientists was that the earth was flat. Christopher Columbus challenged that notion and changed the world forever. #HappyColumbusDay

What a dumbass.
Some of the responses:
This tweet must never be forgotten.
This demonstrates such profound ignorance that everyone should be appalled you hold statewide office.
Where did you go to college? You need to demand your money back for keeping you so stupid.
Ummm…NOT according to historical experts.
“no educated person in the history of Western Civilization from the third century B.C. onward believed that the Earth was flat.”
Get your facts straight, @Eric_Schmitt.
Next time, crack open a history book before you make a complete ass of yourself
This is what happens when you limit what can be taught in history classes.
Curvature of the earth has been known by sailors for 2000 plus years.
Critical Sailing Theories!! Lol
The scientific consensus that the world was round was agreed on in Ancient Greece, and understood before then.
What Columbus did was ignore the scientists who, within ~0.1%, accurately estimated how big the world is and declared the Caribbean to be India.
Just to clarify for anyone else reading (as I’m sure @trianglman knows) the Ancient Greek Eratosthenes of Cyrene had figured out the circumference of the earth very nearly correctly using records from the library of Alexandria (where he was head librarian.)
This was roughly 2000 years before Columbus.
Eratosthenes was off because his math assumes that the earth was a sphere, when it’s actually somewhat squished at the poles.
(Columbus’s math was off because he was bad at math and too arrogant to listen to everyone else.)
Also: Columbus thought the earth was smaller than it is. Imagine how long of a boat voyage sailing from Spain to China would be if North America was just water? Yeah, you wouldn’t want to sail that. But he thought that the known circumference was wrong and went for it.
Actually scientists long before 1492 knew the world was not flat. Ships disappeared over the horizon. Where did you go to school again?
You could research things before you tweet.
come on. if he won’t do research before filing law suits why would he do it for a tweet?
Dude, Europeans knew the Earth was round since the time of the ancient Greeks. Not only that, but Columbus underestimated the distance between Spain and East Asia, and his voyage would have starved had they not discovered the Americas as their supplies ran out
In 1492 Eric would taking Columbus to court to maintain it was flat. Can’t have someone getting a shorter spice route to India
You know why Columbus got mocked? Because scholars of his day new for a fact that the world was much larger than he thought, and he risked starvation over his error.
Just stop it. Wherever you were educated has a lot of explaining to do.
Tell me you don’t know history without telling me you don’t know history.
Omg, read a book. The Egyptians knew the earth was round over 6,000 years ago. Columbus did not “discover” Earth’s shape, scientists did.
“And then Columbus said, ‘I cannot tell a lie, father, it was I who chopped down the cherry tree, to show thst the world was round!’ Whereupon the father wept and welcomed the prodigal son back to his family, and they lived happily ever after.”
The dinoosaurs made him do it.
Oooh It’s history myth story time. Let’s all gather on the story carpet. Now do Thanksgiving. How ’bout the story where a state AG sues a country over a virus?
You should support creating a “Neil Armstrong Day”, the guy discovered the moon, after all.
This is why teachers, not politicians, need to be in charge of curriculum
Seems there was a child left behind, Bush.
This man passed the bar? Real question. Surely, someone checked, right?
Have you ever met a culture warrior stance you don’t want to peddle?
No. This has been another edition of short answers to simple questions.
Do you get your history facts from Buggs Bunny cartoons?
Did you take the bar exam with one of those really big pencils or a crayon?
Stay in school, kids
When you tweet these things, do you know they are wrong and rely on followers to not be smart enough to know, too? Or do you really not know? Either is bad. Do better.
How in the remedial coursework is this tweet still live?!
We all have the receipts.
Wow. Just wow with the inaccuracy.
This is honestly fucking embarrassing bro.
What’s truly offensive about this tweet is how stupid you think your supporters are. You pander so hard to folks you’ll never ever respect. You’re trash, bro.
Seriously? If Trump said the world was flat, you’d delete this tweet and sue all the school districts in MO for having globes in their classrooms. Have a shred of self respect.
Do you ever do any actual work??
This is hilarious. The tweet has been out there for 3.5 hours and still not deleted. Ignorance is strong with this one.
Man you really haven’t read any history have you… There was never a scientific majority that believed the earth was flat. It has only ever been the folksy imaginings of ignorant people.
Is this a parody account?
I will never understand why you think spouting off about things you clearly are ignorant about is a good look
Are you really this ignorant, or are you just assuming your followers are?
The level of ignorance expressed in this tweet has me question your sentience as a life form. Clearly your critical thinking skills are under developed for your current role. Could we substitute a potted plant for you so that we could have a productive AG?
There you go.

The monoclonal antibody treatment is developed and sold by big pharma and costs $2000 a pop. The vaccine is free.

5/ I can attest that, after this experience, I am even more dedicated to fighting against vaccine mandates. Instead of enriching the pockets of Big Pharma and corrupt bureaucrats and politicians, we should be advocating the monoclonal antibody infusion therapy.
Do you have a spare $2,000.00?
If you haven’t already done so, get vaccinated.

I won’t share his propaganda here, but Joshua Hawley is once again fanning the flames, hoping to turn this cold Civil War hot.
This week it’s by normalizing white supremacy.
Attacking children, parents + school board members is not patriotism.

“Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” ― Winston Churchill
9:29 AM · Oct 7, 2021
Is someone going to tell him?
There is much hilarity in the responses:
Thank you for explaining why you tried to overturn a fair election and why you are trying to prevent us from ending the pandemic.
Never, never give in to the worst among us for they are “full of passionate intensity.” If we do, “mere anarchy will be loosed upon the world.”
To whom are you referring is the enemy?
Q. Who is the enemy?
A. Any American that doesn’t support Eric’s viewpoint.
Churchill fought actual Nazis. Your enemies, as far as I can tell, are things like reason, dignity, kindness, cooperation. It’s misguided and exhausting…but I guess it pays well.
I’m thinking of how eloquently Winston Churchill would have rallied his nation to fight COVID through collective sacrifice, large and small. I’m thinking how unlike @Eric_Schmitt Winston Churchill was. I’m thinking of the COVID quitters who shrug off 700,000 deaths.
“A fanatic is one who can’t change his mind and won’t change the subject.”
Insurrectionist says what, Eric?
Churchill was a leader. He sometimes had to promote unpopular things in order to fight the common enemy. We have a common enemy in COVID-19. In the 40’s, you would’ve sued London because of their night time blackout policy. You’re not a leader.
Why you spell honour like that? If you’re gonna be in this country then learn to speak American
Just take Winston Churchill out of your mouth.
We already won that war.
I really hope Churchill’s ghost comes back to haunt you. The sheer irony of using a man’s quote that fought the Nazi to push a Nazi 2.0 version agenda is something.
Churchill didn’t view citizens as the enemy. That’s the biggest difference between repugs like you and real leaders.
Churchill fought fascists like you, chief.
Yet, you gladly tossed yours aside for your political aspirations.
“Except to convictions of honour and good sense” See that is the key phrase this quote is built around by all sides Eric. Perhaps the most important point made and the one that you are lacking the most. You have neither honor nor good sense, as evident by your recent lawsuits.
Liberty and equality. Learn to balance those you moron
They told him.
In a creepy sort of way.
Eric Schmitt @Eric_Schmitt
The Left is obsessed with obedience. They won’t allow people to disagree with their orthodoxy. Forced masking. Forced vaccination. Criminalizing dissent. It’s all happening. We have to fight back on all fronts.[….]
5:17 PM · Oct 6, 2021
Some of the responses:
Speaking for me- No one forces me to mask or vaccinate. Many people trust professionals. Some of us can even critically evaluate sources and info. If evidence-based science feels so oppressive, congratulations on your life of privilege [….] The cloth on your face isn’t hurting you.
Go volunteer in an ICU
I can always count on my state’s attorney general to speak out against citizenship, civility, and civilization. His message is brutal selfishness, cloaked by the buzzword of “freedom.” His tactic is demonization, masquerading as righteousness.
Impressive resume you got there, champ.
We’re you born a piece of shit, or did you work hard to do it?
Baby brain tantrum here
Who are you talking to? Who are you talking about? “The Right” is the faction of groups right now obsessed with obedience and against any conversation or dialogue. You’re banning books, flags, and theories; banning forms of health care; insinuating violence. Look at yourself!
You’ll make a good senator, Eric. You’ve already perfected the art of lying without shame.
I think you’re politicizing public health. You should be ashamed of taking advantage of peoples trust in you for personal gain.
The only thing you geniuses need to fight is willful stupidity… [….]
“Fight back on all fronts” – is code for commuting acts of violence and murder. This tweet WILL be used as evidence in the court of law.
Lock your doors and windows.

Hey @HawleyMO, just circling back to see if you saw the threats to school officials across the country. We made a montage for you in case you didn’t.
8:04 PM · Oct 5, 2021
Watch the video.
Some of the comments:
He’s taking this position when an out of stater charged with 260 counts of fraud, threatened Walmart pharmacists with execution & came to Hawley’s home turf to rant at the local school board meeting. [….]
It used to be that when someone’s perception of reality was this far off base he would get a trip in a special jacket so that he could not hurt himself. Now they just lie about where they live and get elected to office. [….]
Nurses in his state have to carry panic buttons. He doesn’t care.
Dude’s a traitor.
Help with with this. Is his the same Josh Hawley who called police and said he was being attacked when peaceful protestors walked in front of his house carrying signs earlier this year?
If you are expecting Hawley, or any member of the GOP, to suddenly start being intellectually honest, you will he waiting a loooong time.
@HawleyMO, we need your clarification in light of these threats. Do you support such conduct? For the record please!
If Josh took any interest in his home state, he’d know one of these “concerned parents” threatened a black admin with “something worse than lynching” this week. But he only cares about what his handlers say & his political ambitions.
Except the “MY” state should have been Virginia. Ain’t nobody in Missouri every seen him.
So embarrassing. I voted for Claire McCaskill.
so when a few people demonstrating with posters stood outside his house it was “harrassment”,but says the parents threatening the school board is ok?
Please find out how many days Josh Hawley has actually BEEN in Missouri since he was elected. Maybe he’s unaware of the real threats to individuals in Missouri since he lives in Virginia.
Good to know that Josh stands for law, order and tourism. The videos just show tourists at school board meetings.
I’m old enough to remember when Hawley was part of an insurrection.
Josh Hawley thinks this will get him elected President.
Well, there is a really low bar for his party’s nomination.
I can’t believe Hawley thinks he’s senatorial.
He does pompous ass really well.
He’s a jackass
Josh Hawley isn’t being sincere about threats at school board meetings. The American people have SEEN the verifiable threats made to educators, in the parking lots & in their cars.
Josh, when someone says to them: “We know where you live & we’re coming for you!”
It’s a threat.
If only everyone in the world knew what a lying, disingenuous, piece of shit he was before he was elected.
Oh wait, we did. Yet there’s enough partisan idiots in Missouri to put him in a position of power. Good work dumbasses
If Josh Hawley clutched those pearls any harder, he’d turn them into diamonds
Hawley knows exactly what he is doing, get these right wingers amped up so that they get themselves arrested. Keep playing that dog whistle.
So out of line. He knows, he is just an opportunist.
