Senator Roy Blunt @RoyBlunt
Because of vaccines, we have a pathway out of this pandemic. COVID vaccines are safe, effective, and accessible. Please consider getting vaccinated.
[….] 5:56 PM · Aug 2, 2021
The marks aren’t there yet. Probably won’t ever be.
Learn the truth! The vaccine is not safe!! Look at the CDC website!!
Stop Gaslighting the public. According to VAERS over 11,000 have died from the vaccine and an equal amount have permanent disabilities from the JAB. Vaccinated people are being infected with COVID at the same rate as the unvaccinated. And you are calling it “safe & effective?”
Vaccines are killing more people than Covid now. The CDC buries the info on its website.
they do not work
Stop spreading lies! The vaccine is not safe! The test fir the vaccine has been recalled due to all false positive results. The vaccine has failed its peer test!! There is nothing safe about it!
You can’t possibly know if this is safe. It hasn’t been around long enough to know what long term effects are. List of things we were originally told were safe: cigarettes, baby powder, J&J suntan lotion, DDT, asbestos, Avandia, Zantak, the list is endless.
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Liberals at @HuffPost say my bill requiring schools to teach our kids the Constitution, Bill of Rights, & Declaration of Independence is “whitewashing” history. That’s crazy. Those documents ARE our history & the high principles that unite us as Americans are worth celebrating 5:53 PM · Jul 26, 2021
Some of the responses:
Literally no one is saying that, Josh.
They did say Josh’s bill is white washing history, but that’s because of its stupidly narrow focus. Context to the documents is needed. But Josh is also fascist, so expect many distorted truths from him.
So when they learn the founding document states that black people count as 60% of a person, what conclusion should they come to?
You are a disingenuous ass
Yes, I left the Republican Party for many reasons, but it comes down to truth. Since Trump took over, my former political party is made up of people who don’t tell the truth. People who can’t handle the truth. People who rejoice in lying.
I can’t be a part of that.
Are we also going to teach them that Senators instigating insurrections is against the Constitution . . ?
How about a bill that teaches the GOP what a Certified Election means.
We should absolutely teach those things as well as slavery, the Civil War, Jim Crowe, reconstruction and the 1/6/2021 insurrection
My 3 adult kids graduated from MO public schools. You did not. They all learned this material in MO public schools. You would know that if you lived here, had kids in public school, or ever attended public school. Cool it with this hysteria.
You forgot that on 1/6/2021.
Those things are already taught in school. Try to keep up, Hee Haw Hawley.
Josh: *thinking* “what made up controversy can I stir up? Got it: I’ll lie & say kids aren’t taught about the Constitution in school which literally everyone knows that they are”
*ignoring a real crisis* story: “Missouri hospital just hit its all-time high for Covid cases”
You do realize that those are already taught in Missouri classrooms, and classrooms all over America, right? That’s literally the whole point of AP US History. And every 11th grade history class. Sheesh.
Schools across Missouri are already teaching those things. What exactly is the point of your bill?
You are a lying POS. You helped lead a revolt against our country.
You know what one of my favorite documents is the United States is? The Congressional subpoena. You should get one. Really.
Students do learn about those important documents (did you miss a lot of school??-it might explain some things). I also taught students one of America’s greatest strengths was it’s smooth transition of power. And now you ruined that. Very disappointing.
Okay, come back at us with what they really object to. Nobody is going to believe that anyone would object to teaching the Constitution, Bill of Rights or Declaration of Independence. What else does your “proposal” call for? What are they REALLY objecting to?
Self-Own – if that’s what he thinks “his bill” says, he hasn’t read his bill.
I’m imagine your bill is as vague and selective of this here tweet of yours?
Will they also be taught about the January 6th insurrection that your traitor ass participated in?
You should study those documents. Give em a good read.
Not sure where you went to school, but all three of my kids were taught these things. Do you ever get exhausted with all the lying?
What a ridiculous statement, after TFG especially.
Bad combover. Check. Too long red tie. Check. Orange spray tan. Check. Tiny hands. Check. Cluelessness. Check…
Wtf? Where are you coming up with these lies?
I’m embarrassed that I voted you in the past
Umm….please remind us of the name of the former president who claimed dictators were his friends?
The GQP lie, lie, and then lie some more.
* Keystone wouldn’t have brought lower gas or energy prices to Americans.
* Keystone wouldn’t have created more than a couple dozen new jobs at most.
* Nord Stream 2 is already nearly done and follows the same pathway as the original.
Hey remember when a bunch of your GQP colleagues visited moscow on july 4th and then came back pushing russian propaganda?
LOL. Is this a parody account ?
You are abusing prescription meds, aren’t you?
Full on Q.
Stands to reason…….
Vickster rode the #racist birther, tea party wave into office.
Of course she’d embrace the #Q movement to garner votes.
America benefits in no way from the leaky tube of toxic Canadian sludge Vicky is shilling for, so you have to wonder is she being bribed or does she just really love poisoning Native lands?
Please do Missouri a favor, Go Away.
Oh yea take hawley with you also
It wasn’t “America’s” pipeline. It was for Canadian oil to pass through the USA for shipping elsewhere out of the Gulf. Do you have ANYTHING accurate and worthwhile saying or are you just a pipeline for lies and misinformation?
Yes. This has been another edition of short answers to simple questions.
Vicky doesn’t care about anyone except an endorsement from Trump. We need someone to vote her out. She is a traitor
Does anything come out of your vicious mouth that isn’t a lie. You have no business being in congress. And I guarantee you will never make senator! This country is fed@up with your kind! Vote you out!
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Replace the lies with the truth! That’s what my Love America Act is all about. No more critical race theory in schools. Teach our kids the truth of who we are – a nation of liberators
[….] 6:33 PM · Jul 22, 2021
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
The Left wants to teach our kids that America is systemically racist. That’s false and it’s meant to divide. It’s time to replace lies with the truth! America is a great nation of good people – and our kids should be proud of that. That’s why I’m introducing the Love America Act
6:20 PM · Jul 22, 2021
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
It will require schools that get federal tax dollars to teach kids the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution & Bill of Rights, and the Pledge. These texts affirm the truths that unite us, and make us a great people.
6:20 PM · Jul 22, 2021
The first page of the United States Constitution  – National Archives – detail
Uh, the Pledge of Allegiance isn’t a founding document. By the way, which version?
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
No more critical race theory. No more hate. Let’s teach our kids what unites us as Americans – what we love together. Let’s teach them the truth
6:20 PM · Jul 22, 2021
As usual, there is much hilarity in the responses:
“And what unites as Americans in my world is complaining about Simon & Schuster canceling my book deal…”
Hawley when Jim Crow laws were enacted and when they had separate black and White dining areas was that racist?
Critical Race Theory is not being taught in schools!!!! It’s not!
Factual real history is taught and should be honored.
In that history are some things we cannot be proud of. But that doesn’t make them less important to look at and understand.
No whitewashing the facts.
Josh Hawley (r) doesn’t care.
Critical Race Theory is not taught in A SINGLE SCHOOL IN AMERICA. It’s presented to college students who have the ability to discern the information. Totally misleading…. AS USUAL
Putting a band aid and blinders on do not help solve our problems and unite us. Being honest and teaching our history, not a whitewashed history, and how we got to where we are is how we heal and grow together.
Ignoring prejudice won’t eliminate it. Ignoring hate doesn’t solve our problems. Turning our backs on issues is a plan for failure. Teach the truth. We can teach our children to face reality and they can still love our country
Wtf Josh, should we not teach children about the truth that there was slavery.. that the QOP has been hate mongering all through the last 2 years… just teach the truth good and bad..people can’t stick their heads in the sand
Like what you did on 1/6?
Sounds great. Let’s teach them the truth. All truth. Even the painful truth. Denying the racism that’s woven into our society isn’t teaching truth. Teach the truth. Allow our children to form opinions based on true history, not the whitewashed version you propose.
As a model for what you want schools to teach, can you begin with the history of how Missouri became a state?
What would you teach? Would you teach that Missouri’s first constitution prohibited the entry of free Negros and mulattoes?
“No more hate”… Does that mean LGBT are in or out? Hard to tell with you.
Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Why are you so against education & critical thinking? It’s not about division (unlike your rhetoric) it’s about taking an honest look at where we started, and trying our best to move forward.
Teaching history is not hate.
First. Critical race theory isn’t taught at our schools. Second, you can’t just pick and choose the history taught. History can be both bad and good. Our kids can take it!
Critical race theory isn’t taught in schools. It is usually taught as an elective in High level college classes. Stop fear mongering.
Dude who helped sell the big lie that the election was stolen and then incited a violent insurrection in an attempt to overthrow the government says what about the truth?
None of what you listed is critical race theory, son. It’s history.
So a guy who should be in jail for insurrection is introducing a bill to teach what is already taught because a manufactured outrage like Chris Rufo’s Critical Race Theory stunt is dividing people, causing FOX News viewers to believe teaching American history is bad. Got it.
You don’t know the first thing about the truth.
Some of us don’t love insurrections.
You should learn the definitions of the words and phrases you use.
Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
The really frightening ones use it as a blueprint.
You know full well CRT is only taught in colleges, but far be it from you to be honest with your constituents.
You are the opposite of a uniter.
I thought you said that you want to teach kids the truth. Truth is, the US used slave labor to build. Then even after freeing the slaves, the government systematically denied them basic human dignity and rights. You want to teach fairy tales.
So the way to love America is to restrict criticism of it? #fascism
If you can’t handle the facts of slavery and racism in the United States, you’re not concerned with the truth. You’re only concerned with propaganda.
This is the most pie in the sky bullshit I’ve ever heard.
It’s in his nature.
You’re never going to be president, Josh.
There’s already a really low bar. Donald Trump. I rest my case.
Pigeonholing all public schools to say the pledge? Bullshit.
You take civics teaching which is already being done and legal theory and confuse people by misleading through lying about what is actually happening. Insurrectionist continue to foment for the over through of the constitution. You should resign.
Kind of late to the right wingnut talking point bandwagon, eh?
And, as always, there is much hilarity in the responses:
Number of schools in your district where critical race theory is taught: 0
Number of counties in your district where COVID infections have increased due to Delta: 24
she’s never, NEVER in a setting where she must answer questions or defend her propaganda
can’t have a @RepHartzler without a sophisticated insulation system in place where the information only flows in one direction
If we were true to the Constitution, you wouldn’t even have the right to vote, Vicky.
I’m not sure why you wouldn’t want our actual history to be taught, unless you’re ashamed of it.
I stand with all the people who know the consequences of lying about history in order to make people feel better instead of teaching fact in order to *BE* better
Critical Race Theory doesn’t have a place in Missouri schools because it’s not *taught* in schools. It’s a graduate-level course with a specific meaning for students studying law and civil rights.
How ashamed of our country’s history, good and bad, do you have to be to want it not even to be taught?
Your party can not create a policy platform that serves its constituents so it defaults to these non existent culture war topics. Sad.
THIS parent is far more concerned about gun violence when I send my kids to school than the idea that their teachers might suddenly decide to teach them a grad-school theory. How about you deal with a REAL problem.
The fact that these hearings have been non-inclusive and one sided tells it all.
Right? “Here’s a bunch of white people to explain why we’re not racist, just ask anyone (white)!”
@RepHartzler CRT is not taught in 1-12 class rooms but I would like you to explain exactly what it is. Because unless you took the course in college, I’m guessing you can’t.
I was only able to watch 3/5 of your speech.
Someone wins the Internets today.
Unfortunately for you, kids don’t need to be taught CRT specifically to pick up on how the webs of power in this country heavily advantage some and disenfranchise others. They just need to go out in the world and meet people who are different from them. Sorry that scares you.
Well since its not taught in k thru 12….
The dog whistles are getting louder…
You could fit everything you know about Critical Race Theory on the head of a pin.
What a shocking turn of events, another mindless, virtue signaling republican coming out against CRT. [….]
You don’t even know what CRT is. But because it involves discussions around dismantling racism, you are against it.
You know what that makes you.
And tell us where this is taught? This is just catnip for your base.
Stop insulting your constituents by thinking we are stupid.
Was slavery racist?
And was it part of the law?
Heck, slavery was part of the original US Constitution.
Why don’t you want folks to know our Constitution?
Critical Race Theory is the new scary term the Right is using to create hysteria. Schools aren’t teaching it, never have and never will in any K-12 class.
You look more and more like Gaetz and Greene each and every day.
That’s a feature, not a bug
There’s a republican primary for a U.S. Senate seat in Missouri in 2022.
@RepHartzler, please have a bit of respect for your constituents. CRT is taught in *zero* public schools. You honestly believe your district is that stupid? Please work for the welfare of Missourians, and stop this performative bullshit.
Spreading false information in an effort to spread hate & fear makes you & your fellow representatives worthless legislators & actually hate-filled human beings. [….]
As usual, there is much hilarity in the responses:
Can you identify three policies Biden promoted that caused this spike in prices?
I do know one: the economy opened up when the vaccinations became available.
Do you miss a year ago when prices were low because the economy was shut down?
Vicky is not smart enough to comprehend this
Ooh…look at Republicans riding the “inflation” story as hard as they can. Meanwhile, back in the real world, lumber prices are down 2/3, and crude oil down 17% (look out gasoline). Rooting against America, like @RepHartzler does, is a powerful drug. [….]
It isn’t because of President Biden. It’s pretty simple economics.
She doesn’t understand economics.
She understands. She’s just lying. She knows post-pandemic inflation was predicted a year ago, but insists on blaming Biden.
Post-pandemic. Not exactly.
Why are Americans paying more in all the stores? Try COVID-19 and its near year long lockdown. People around the world could not produce the goods everyone is now wanting while under stay at home lockdowns. Fewer goods, more people looking, prices go UP.
I’m more worried about insurrection than inflation.
I was going to add scathing commentary, Vickster but, everyone else has pretty much got it covered.
I will add……
Stick with #Insurrection.
It is what you do best.
More lies and disinformation from Missouri’s welfare Queen.
Jackie W tweeted this uncited graphic yesterday. Now I am convinced you are not a independent thinking representative. Please learn supply and demand so you can understand capitalism. Your socialistic farm subsidy lifestyle seems to have horribly prepared you to speak on this.
Talking points, eh?
What’s the matter Vicky? You don’t have any photo ops scheduled for today. So instead you decide to peddle bullshit misinformation about inflation. Perhaps do something useful with your time. You know, something like reaching out to Missourians and asking them to get vaccinated.
We have a surge in domestic terrorists using the flag as their weapon! Hypocrite!
Pandemic unavoidably caused disruption of goods & materials pipeline. Government caused huge influx of cash, large hit to energy production, expectation of more regulation, expectation of higher taxes, cover for individuals not working. Why would we not expect inflation?
How stupid do you really think everyone is? Six months and this is all on him? What about your pathetic party that you bow down to? What about you? You post propaganda and take pictures.
Suck it, Insurrectionist. The GOP betrayed America.
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
A moment of candor from Jen Psaki, in which she refers to the monopoly social media companies as “public platforms,” as in arms of the government
[….] 2:07 PM · Jul 16, 2021
As always, there is much hilarity in the responses:
But you know that, don’t you ….
A “private” platform is a closed one, in which, say, employees of the same company communicate and share information for work. Or, you know, the secret group some folks might have participated in to plan Jan 6.
We see what you did there.
Private business voluntarily cooperating w/govt to solve pressing public issue doesn’t mean business is arm of govt
But you know that
Don’t you need to push more people for vaccination in Missouri? Oh, I forgot you don’t live in that state.
“Monopoly” of “companies” – mono is supposed to mean 1, and public means available to anyone… ugh
Hawley says if he had been there he would have raised his fist in hopes of helping incite yet another insurrection!
Doesn’t mean that all. But continue to speak against big tech while using their platforms.
If she said “social media platforms” you would have accused her of being socialist.
Stores are “open to the public” which means you can go in and shop unless you give them a reason to escort you out or call the cops. Does that make them “arms of government”?
Oh give me a break guy. She means “public” in the sense that everything people write on there can be seen by the public. As in the posts they write are not private. But I’m sure you know that. Your spin for the sake of confusing people and holding onto your own power is showing.
Public, as what is published is available to all. Platform, as in platform.
And your point is…?
There is none.
Like open to the public. Like a store.
They ARE public platforms. They are open to the public within the rules established. That doesn’t make them non-private.
Sounds like you want interfere with private companies and do a little “cancel culture” on them.
None of these platforms are owned by the US Government. They broadcast publicly.
Josh, just can it. @PressSec owns everyone on every topic. I wouldn’t go to a debate with her.
Pass the popcorn.
Proof that one should have some appropriate prerequisites to run for federal offices.
Lol public platforms means a platform for the public can speak out, NOT the arm of a government. Where do you get THAT definition?
That’s what you took away? You worked hard on that spin.
Why not do something useful instead?
Lmao you’ll never be president
Imagine being Peter Doocy waking up each morning and thinking he’s so gonna own the libs with the question he plans. Then every day faceplanting himself
Then imagine Josh Hawley thinking that Peter Doocy the Fox nepotism hire is some sort of blazing intellectual tour de force.
This is all you’ve got? A turn of phrase from the Press Secretary is your whole justification for nationalizing a private enterprise? I see why you’ve never actually tried a case, Josh. You’re very bad at crafting compelling, or even logical and consistent, arguments.
Still missing the point Joshy. Misinformation is killing your constituents.
Planning any treason today?
You make me doubt you graduated elementary school, not just Yale.
I don’t think she means what you think she means, insurrectionist.
We need healthcare, quality education, good Union jobs and a clean environment. Nobody gives a shit about this.
The information posted is publicly available made so by a private corporation according to their terms of service. It isn’t “spying” if the data is available publicly. And the government does not ban anyone off these platforms. That help?
I wish I had your job, getting paid by taxpayers to bitch about twitter on twitter all day.
Can everyone say “Dunning Kruger”?
Good, because that’s what Hawley suffered from.
And in turn, we ALL suffer for it.
We should rename the country the Divided States of ‘Murika
Nice try Josh. To be a “public platform” a communication vehicle does not have to be an “arm of government.” You know that, yet you put it out to the gullible, low-info Trump/MAGA/GQP base. They’ll believe it although anyone with a double-digit IQ will call it out as BS.
A public platform is not an arm of the government.
What do you gain by displaying such ignorance?
Asking for a country.
I take it you didn’t do well in English classes.
Public platform doesn’t mean arms of government. Stop spreading misinformation
How does someone with such a low IQ pass Harvard? Did Daddy make a big donation to get you through law school? Hey, it worked for Trump. Public Josh means open and available to the public, not owned or managed by the government.
What would you call them “private platforms”? They are very public–you look at them, I look at them. What is your point? Public does not always mean “government” you allegedly are a “constitutional lawyer” you should know that.
Didn’t people you went to school with say you were a fascist?
You’re really not good at this are you?
Do you really not understand what the “public” setting is when you post on a privately owned corporation’s social media site? Or are you lying to the public… again
How dumb is Josh Hawley? Everyone knows it’s a public platform because it is used by people – the public, but it’s run by a PRIVATE COMPANY and they can set their own conditions for users. If users don’t like the rules, then they don’t have to use the service.
You didn’t have many fiends growing up did you?
Wrong. As usual. Did you pay someone to take your exams for you?
You literally have no clue what your talking about
You lost your argument the moment you posted Peter Doocy.
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
So now the Biden Administration wants to get into people’s text messages … to force vaccine compliance and who knows what else
[….] 8:14 PM · Jul 12, 2021
Apparently the tracking microchips aren’t in the vaccine. Time to switch to a rotary dial land line.
Some of the responses:
Everyone needs to be vaccinated. How many dead do you want?
Since when is giving people correct information and offering them help considered “forcing” them to do something?
Where in the text does it say ANY of what you say-force vaccine compliance? Where? Is scaring the base the only way you know how to communicate, Senator?
What is wrong with a text message about how to get to a vaccine? I thought earlier you were praising how fast Trump got the vaccine done and now you don’t want people to take it? Which is it, you can’t have both?
Hey Josh, how’s that Delta Outbreak going in MO? Are you waiting for the Lambda version to arrive too?
Making something available and easier to get is not forcing.
So now the GOP doesn’t want Americans to get vaccinated? Headuptheass is a serious disease and it looks like we have another pandemic on our hands
Do you live in 2002? Are you paying per text?
Heard you were big on technology. Guess that was false
#protip: you can’t vaccinate text messages, mobile phones, etc.
Missouri counties are in the top 20 of USA for covid cases, hospitalizations, and death. Your voters are dying and You have no answers or appropriate response.
The irony is that the Biden administration is encouraging rural conservatives to get this life-saving vaccine, and you’re encouraging them to get this deadly virus.
Stopping the spread of misinformation and saving lives is such a horrible thing.
Those aren’t the text messages you should be worried about Joshy boy
We see what you did there.
Offering information is not force. Try helping America instead of standing in the way.
When undermining the world’s oldest democracy isn’t enough.
So managing public health concerns isn’t easy and I’m not sure where the privacy lines should be drawn but at least thought being put into it is better than a finger pointing Twitter barrage. Nice job as usual telling me something I can read myself.
Great! Conveying public health information is the function of good government. Thank you
That’s not at all what this says Josh.
I get amber alerts automatically. What’s the difference?
They might even start making you wear shoes in restaurants
That’s not what this says.
Your state is doing great. Keep up the good work.
God forbid Americans are informed
Bold of you to come out against Amber Alerts
The day they start “fact checking” my text messages to friends and family is the day I covfefe.
Bet your glad you live in VA now so your family is safe.
Oh the horror! People who want to be vaccinated getting vaccinated!! #Jerk
“To force vaccine compliance”? Did you actually read the thing you posted? It says no such thing. You’re not even a good liar.
Jason Rosenbaum @jrosenbaum
Pretty strong and unequivocal message from @RoyBlunt as MO continues to deal with more Delta variant cases, especially in SW Missouri:

Roy Blunt (r). Just a step or two…or three behind.
Governor Mike Parson @GovParsonMO
I have directed our health department to let the federal government know that sending government employees or agents door-to-door to compel vaccination would NOT be an effective OR a welcome strategy in Missouri! 7:47 PM · Jul 7, 2021
