The scene tonight at a raucous Loudoun County school board hearing where many came to voice opposition to critical race theory. The meeting was stopped when the crowd wouldn’t quiet down and two were arrested.

Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
.@mogop_jasper have been looking forward for many days to being with you tonight for Lincoln Days. But the Senate has stayed in session and I’m still in DC representing our state. I’ll keep on standing up for what we believe – unafraid – and hope to see you soon 11:24 AM · Mar 6, 2021
As usual, there was hilarity in most of the rsponses:
You voted against COVID-19 relief.
You don’t represent Missourians.
Josh, we here in Missouri are so very proud of what you are doing for us. Standings up for what us right and just and fair.We voted for you and have been very proud of you.
And the folks in Virginia?
Most of the people in Missouri I know didn’t, and the ones who did say they feel duped. They especially don’t like they found out he was lying about supporting pre-existing conditions, and conned them about even living here.
Who’s surprised that the party responsible for a violent insurrection that left 7 Americans dead, hundreds injured, ended a 232-year peaceful transition of power and whose own members are now currently under investigation by the DOJ wouldn’t vote for a plan to help Americans?
Personally I’m glad bill passed as I NEED the help! But, I totally agree with the reasons the Republicans are voting against it. It’s not the helping Americans part they object to, it’s the 90% of the bill going to things thst are not covid or people related.
except for you voted against the relief package after WEEKS of virtue signaling when it was politically convenient. Woj said it best. Resign.
Josh expressed a degree of concern;
about Wray’s probe he tried more to learn.
His hands fairly twitched; his
voice wavered & pitched. Maybe
Josh felt a tinge of heartburn?
Why focus on the metadata?
We very well may find out later.
Senators Hawley & Cruz have repeatedly expressed concern about the idea of the FBI looking into phone records of those in Congress, on & leading up to Jan 6. Hawley in particular has fumed about this “violation of privacy” in multiple hearings.
Mmm… Wonder why…
You voted against raising the minimum, guess you guys really aren’t the party of the working class.
The guy who instigated an attempt at political assassination — is going to celebrate “Lincoln Days.”
This shit writes itself.
This person won the Internets yesterday.
Wait…was Josh Hawley really planning to come back to Missouri?? Guess his sister was going to make up the spare bedroom for him at his “home” in Missouri.
You don’t represent us – we wanted the Covid relief bill & you voted against it. Thankful for the Democrats who passed it. They care. You don’t.
Maybe, and I’m just spit balling, don’t let your party waste 10 hours reading a bill just to be obstinate.
“Unafraid” is an odd word to throw in there…
Unafraid of what? The FBI gathering data on terrorists? Donors abondoning you as fast as they can?
At least you won’t have to pay for a hotel in Missouri, since you don’t have a house to stay at while there.
Here, let me fix this for ya: “Don’t worry, I’ll keep lying for you, and can’t wait to be thanked for it.”
Its your party’s fault it took this long.
Yeah, where is that vote for raising the minimum wage? Anyway, you support insurrection. Just stay at your Virginia home.
You don’t even live in Missouri, Josh
The very last place you represent is Missouri.
Unafraid? To represent a state you don’t live in?
Josh is busy trying to prevent financial help from reaching middle class families so that there will more $ to send to his billionaire donors.
So good to know Joshie cares so deeply for the people he used to live among! He clearly deeply connected! #JoshLies
You don’t represent me. (A Missouri resident.)
Pretty confident most Missourians oppose insurrection.
It’s close though.
Which state? The one where you live?
For what “we believe.” Maybe represent your entire state not just “we.”
Give it up. One termer.
You voted AGAINST the American people
He just tweeted this to another girl, dont believe him
You sure about that?
What are you afraid of? Hmm…
If you were truly unafraid you would not constantly say you are unafraid. #Traitor
“standing up for what we believe”. Is “what we believe” just limited to treason, insurrection, and sedition, or is there more to it than that?
The more you say you’re unafraid, the more we get the impression you’re trying to convince yourself otherwise.
Josh…what is it “exactly” that you believe in…
CERTAINLY NOT the working class. So rich people rejoice, the other hundreds of millions of you go F-yourself
Signed – j hawley
Biden COVID bill passed by Senate.
100% of Democrats supported it.
100% of Republicans who voted opposed it.
77% of all American voters support it and are relieved it passed.
Relief is coming, no thanks to Republicans!
@HawleyMO, are you able to help your constituents understand which parts of this you oppose? Be specific.
Another canned tweet from a deadbeat Senator.
Your no vote on the American Rescue Plan proves you have been lying all the times you swore to fight for $2000 stimulus checks. You and your obstructionist comrades don’t care a damn bit about working families struggling to keep their families fed and a roof over their head.
Y’all voted against the stimulus package so please tell your constituents to return their 1400.00
.@JoeBiden & Dems are jamming through a budget that will be full of left-wing giveaways, risks Medicare funding and gives crumbs to working people. 1:30 PM · Feb 3, 2021
Some of the responses:
OK. Why not propose more layoff benefits, raise the minimum wage, and expand the relief checks? Strange you are silent on real benefits to working people.
Who’s the president?
He thinks we’re going to forget.
You misspelled taking care of people. That’s okay. Simple mistake.
You killed a cop
Maybe more funerals for police would make you happy too?
Every true patriot understands that Josh Hawley has blood on his hands. Each new gripe or complaint his repute helps to taint as he desperately tries to rebrand. An outcome of naked ambition? For Hawley: unbridled sedition.
Do you have any words of respect or condolences or maybe an apology for Officer Sicknicks family?
It’s cute how Republicans like to pretend to care about “working people.” The Republicans controlled the Senate + White House for 4 years, and the only thing you accomplished with all that power was a wasteful tax cut for billionaires
The “left-wing” giveaways you are referring to are $1400 checks for most Americans, expanded UI insurance to September, and money for the covid fight.
A social media response.
“GOP used budget reconciliation to spend $2.7 trillion for tax cuts that largely benefited the wealthy.
Democrats might use reconciliation to spend $1.9 trillion on a relief package for Americans in the middle of a pandemic.
Yes, there’s a difference between the two parties.”
Aren’t working people’s taxes going up this year, to help fund the Trump/GOP tax cut bonanza for the wealthy?
Yep, that was part of the Trump (r) giveaway to the top 1%.
Of course, you believe the “crumbs” are too generous…for non-1%ers, anyway.
You need to work on your resignation letter
All you have to do is copy and paste the following: I, Josh Hawley, resign effective immediately.
same working people whose votes you wanted thrown out?
insurrectionist says what
Can you give an example of the unity you’ve shown lately, please?
Smarmy quisling says what?
That sounds awesome! Will you stop killing cops
Oh, you mean like the budget Trump crammed through with tax cuts for the rich and crumbs for working people back in 2017?
If you’re not working at the DMV next time I go in for a renewal it’s going to be extremely disappointing.
That’s really unfair to the DMV.
You missed the point as usual. Trying to help all people is not left wing. Where did you receive your education in political systems. LOL
U.S. Senator Josh (R-Mo.) is filing a counter-complaint today against seven Senate Democrats who called for an ethics investigation into his objection to certifying Pennsylvania’s electoral count. The Democrats admitted in their complaint that Hawley’s electoral college objection was lawful. In a letter to the seven Democrat Senators, Senator Hawley called out the senators for their historic partisan abuse of the Senate ethics process and potential coordination with dark money groups.[….]
Last night there was a candlelight vigil outside the home of Josh Hawley (r) in suburban Virginia:
The fifty minute video documents the protest vigil – watch it from the beginning. It’s so typical of these types of demonstrations.
Meanwhile, in the comments:
Voter suppression?! More like voter multiplication
Get a job.
Shall not be infringed.. remember that.
What on Earth could that mean?
these people are mentally unstable
Imagine being so confident that your candidate won that you go out and attack the families of people investigating the legitimacy of your win.
Attack? A peaceful (albeit loosely organized) candlelight vigil with a dozen people passing around a bullhorn?
Don’t they know Christmas break is over.
Get to bed kids!
Thats it film your signs what a joke!!
Well considering that the senator lied about the interaction, it is probably a good thing they filmed it…
Well, apparently, an independent citizen journalist showed up to film it (watch the video from the beginning). One of the first rules of these types of protests is everybody film everything.
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Tonight while I was in Missouri, Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can’t travel. They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door. Let me be clear: My family & I will not be intimidated by leftwing violence 10:13 PM · Jan 4, 2021
It was in Virginia. There’s substantial video of the vigil. Local police observed the vigil. If these participants are actual Antifa no one has anything to worry about.
Some of the comments on Twitter:
Disgusting these people walk among us. So sorry your wife was terrorized tonight. Stay strong, don’t back down.
He’s lying to you.
It was closer to a candle lit vigil, lol.
And that exchange sums up the entirety of life in America in the 21st Century.
Totally honest Josh Hawley is telling the totally honest truth here I am sure. Fascists never lie.
Turns out he’s lying.
Hey it seems you lied again.
I agree that he exaggerated, but a mass of people coming directly to anyone’s home with their family seems a bit much in any scenario. I imagine if there was a group of people in front of my home with my wife and kids. How isn’t that concerning as a husband and father?
Only if you consider a “mass” of 10 adults with candles frightening, concerning, thuggish or Antifa. I’ve had more people than that in front of my house at Halloween and they were definitely more worrisome.
This is violence??????
To these fascists it is. Peaceful demonstrations scare the shit out of them.
I dunno, Josh. You’re the one trying to overthrow democracy. This looks pretty tame:
Except the protestors filmed the entire thing start to finish. Do you find it at all concerning that Hawley needs to lie this badly? If he’s willing to lie about an event with video evidence, what else has he lied about?
Where is the DOJ, FBI? and the police.
why were they not arrested
Because it was a peaceful protest. Nothing to do with antifa.
If it was as he described they would have been arrested.
There’s video, and you’re wetting your pants over a candlelight vigil. Have some warm milk and pipe down.
has he tried not being a fascist?
in real life it was 9 people holding a candlelight vigil
You were actually in MO? I know you don’t live here. Josh, that was 2 dozen people on a sidewalk with a megaphone.
Liar. The police were there.
You’re doing great damage to our democracy and you know it. Protesting that damage is expected.
Stop being a snowflake and an asshat.
He’s lying. Take a look at the video evidence and decide for yourself.
Ummm…it wasn’t “Antifa” (it’s an idea..not a group)… and…how do I say this…he’s lying. So…there’s that.
No violence. The whole thing was taped
Guess what, you’re shamelessly lying. The entire event was captured on video and none of what you’re saying is true.
Look at the damn video before believing him. It’s a lie
Yeah, we saw the video. Outrageous! They had candles!
Ma’am, please file your report with the police, not Twitter, and provide evidence that these “scumbags” were “Antifa.”
Weird huh? It’s almost as if this story may not be completely true.
Pro tip: don’t lie when there is video evidence that shows you are lying.
The whole thing was recorded bro…they never went beyond the sidewalk. But they did have megaphones…Oh, My…a whole 10 of them. [….]
To be clear, the whole event was videotaped and there was no violence or harm to property. Purely peaceful. Your attack on a fair and free election is likely to drive more protests. That is their right.
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
And then the Star, which used to be a Missouri newspaper, wonders why nobody takes their political “reporting” seriously
[….] 1:12 PM · Nov 20, 2020
He considers Breitbart an actual source.
There is much hilarity in the responses:
When all you can do is discredit the messenger because you can’t refute the message, you’re in a bad spot.
1) You don’t spend much time in Missouri.
2) Somehow after becoming a Senator you can now afford two very big homes.
3) You still haven’t passed rent and small biz relief.
@HawleyMO is a grifter
LOL at citing Breitbart as a “serious” source
He says while sharing “journalism” from Brierbart…
Breitbart huh? lol
An ad hominem attack on the media doesn’t invalidate the reporting…
Oh to dispute the @KCStar you cite, (checks notes) Breitbart. I thought you were smart.
Senator who used to be a Missouri resident has opinions on Missouri newspapers.
Why so defensive?
You read and believe Brietbart? I feel sorry for you.
Sharing Breitbart articles, as if they have even a shred of credibility… well, I guess a lack of credibility is something you share with Breitbart.
What address did you use to vote Josh?
Well, that is a public record.
Where is your home and where did you vote?
Oh you’d be surprised that some see through your naked greed and lies and deception. The Star is still as Missouri newspaper, you on the other hand, have an abandoned Missouri in a lust for power. We see you.
It’s funny as no one takes you seriously.
You used that photo? You look like an extra from Planet of the Apes that they didn’t spend much time on makeup because you’d be a background player, which is actually accurate of your political career.
Lol you trash a regional news paper in “your” state by pushing a blog post from a tabloid.
Breitbart reporting is your news source? Not sure you could even identify the state of MO on a map this days.
For a few hours last night over seventy-five individuals gathered in the park at the corner of 47th and Broadway near the entrance to the Plaza in Kansas City to demonstrate against Nazis and racism and in support of the people of Charlottesville, Virginia.
“Make Racism Afraid Again”
Pro tip: if you’re driving in slow city traffic resist the urge to yell a challenge to a large protestor on the sidewalk carrying a sign at the exact moment the traffic light turns red.
