“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

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.

All In with Chris Hayes @allinwithchris
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.
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
It is shocking to see the President of the United States repeat false narratives and threaten law enforcement agents from the White House podium. It’s a new low, even by Biden’s standards 1:19 PM · Sep 24, 2021
January 6, 2020?
As always, there is much hilarity in the responses:
Hi tourists [….]
He doesn’t live in Missouri, he lives in Virginia
It was not whips (and I don’t believe he said it was) but that was cleared up pretty quickly. Still inhumane and horrible as you’d know if you’d ever been around horses and people who actually work cattle.
Crazy that you can have degrees from Stanford AND Yale and not have a basic understanding of “irony.”
Again – how about we focus on MO!
It wasn’t shocking when you supported the insurrection.
Oh it’s real rich, seeing @HawleyMO talking about false narratives.
Good thing Biden fixed the crisis. Quick too! Good job Joe! [….]
You looking in the mirror when you say someone is spreading false narratives?
Did you pay any attention to the last administration??
I believe the “new low” was January 6th. Ask your friends about it
He was there, with raised fist.
Like when they claim they won an election they clearly lost then incited an insurrection with the help of several US Senators? [….]
And given half a chance to get real power, Josh will stoop much, much lower…[….]
Aren’t you late for your goose stepping lessons?
Shouldn’t you be getting your phone records together? [….]
“Repeat false narritives”. You’re joking right?. Your master, Trump, was the king of false narratives.
Hoo boy, let me tell you about a former President who was the king of false narratives!
You are all for repeating false narrative when it’s done by Trump. Isn’t it a false narrative to say you actually live in the district you supposedly represent?
Spare us your fake outrage. Where was it when trump put children in cages?
Wait- weren’t you the guy that encouraged the insurrectionists on the way into the very building they later attacked? Time to slide off that high horse, @HawleyMO.
It’s shocking to see someone who lied to try to destroy our democracy on behalf of Donald Trump say “It is shocking to see the President of the United States repeat false narratives”.
You are such a projecting, dishonest, seditious clown.
You actually helped a President of the United States repeat false narratives, attack law enforcement and then tried to overturn an election you seditious shill. Were you always this deceitful or is this something you practiced?
That’s RICH! The big orange baby who’s ASS you kiss every day still to this day repeats false narratives. You’re such a hypocrite.
Dumb asshole who champions false narratives that lead to an assault on the nation’s capital says what?
Do you ever read what you write you effing idiot?
You’re shocked about false statements? Look back to 1/6. What a phony.
Oh really? The idiot you worship does nothing but lie and spread falsehoods, as do you
Remember when you and the former guy pushed false election fraud claims and your idiot supporters actively threatened and injured law enforcement officers at the capital?
It’s so funny. You were not shocked at all with TFG and his mafioso antics. Obstruction, him trying to steal an election, crimes, corruption, bribes. All of a sudden you discover “a new low?” Where have you been traitor?
Bad combover. Check. Too long red tie. Check. Orange spray tan. Check. Tiny hands. Check. Cluelessness. Check…

One reason the # of Afghans is so high is that people are bringing their entire extended families, regardless of whether anyone meaningfully aided war effort or faces a particularized threat. Perception of an unrestricted policy surely helped drive oversized crowds to airport.

You’re a big part of the reason good deserving people who actually fought for their country and ours never got their SIVs and are hiding from the Taliban with little chance to escape.
I personally have two dozen Afghans stuck there. I’d happily trade you for any one of them. 1:35 PM · Aug 28, 2021
he is crushing the fascists and demagogues, you are one and the same with the commies.
Obviously slept through junior high school.
Yes!! Fight tyrants from Jeff City who come to your town & say the know better than the locals & your community can’t decide for themselves!
Sarcasm? It’s hard to tell these days.
This is only a strong arm play to set him up for political office. Dont be fooled!
This is appalling.
Have you been vaccinated? Do you urge all Missourians to be vaccinated?
Oh you’re the AG. Disgusting.
Is it worth it, Eric? All those people who are going to get infected & die so you can rake in the right wing extremists money? Do your kids wear masks?
No one asked you to storm the beaches at Normandy, @Eric_Schmitt. Be a decent human being and leader and quit contributing to the harm of Missouri’s constituents.
Remember the good ol’ days, when fascist politicians didn’t rile up their base by accusing anyone who doesn’t support their candidate of being an enemy of the state? I mean, sure. It worked for Hitler, but is that really the country you want to live in?
Fascist in lawyer clothes
Forgive him, father, for his tiny monkey brain does not know what it has done. You are destroying the integrity of the Republic. We are at war with a foreign enemy. The Republic must not fall. This divisiveness will ruin us. What we do now decides the next 30 yrs. No going back.
You’re not “fighting tyranny”. You’re killing people.
You couldn’t explain Marxism if your life depended on it. You’re just an ignorant parrot pandering to other irresponsible idiots.
You’re a truly evil piece of shit, and I truly hope you get your come-uppance.
Geez sounds like something a guy from the 40’s would say. thanks for suing to give us no choice on masks. sounds like tyranny to me. You piece of shit you.
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?
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.
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.
