Let the anti-Mormon hate mongering begin!

The Democrats kick the bigotry into gear.

The Daily Beast contacted the office of Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer today to talk about whether his state would be in play in the 2012 presidential election. About a half hour later, the governor called back, and he had a lot to say. He didn’t think that Montana would be a swing state, but the Democrat did say that Mitt Romney could have issues nationally because his father was “born on a polygamy commune in Mexico.”

So that is the way it is going to be, huh? Mitt Romney isn’t a polygamist. His father wasn’t a polygamist. His grandfathers weren’t polygamists. His great-grandfather who died in 1909, however, was a polygamist. We are going to tar Mitt with the activities of a great grandfather who died 40 years before he was born. Okay. Let’s start….

You don’t have to go back that far for Obama. His proudly Marxist father – you know, the one he has dreams from – was a polygamist. And not just a polygamist. He became a bigamist when he played that shit stateside.

Go back a couple more generations and Obama’s ancestors were American slave owners. I mean, if we are going to vest our candidates with the sins of their dead ancestors, Obama carries the sin of slavery in his DNA.

In fact, if that is the way we are going to play it, Obama is a pretty easy target.

So just let me know governor and I will fire up the old ancestry.com account and find out what your great grandfather was up to.

    My great great great grandfather was the first to settle a savagely contested area of the northwest territory shortly after leading Continental Army troops in the American Revolution. The Real Real Revo.

    He settled an area beyond Daniel Boone’s exploits. He brought the first boatload of settlers and pioneered a fertile area and established one of the largest cities in the NT. He was an indian killer. Does that make me unelectable?

    I just got a family history book passed on to me. We arrived in 1633. It’s amazing to see the history. I had two officers of the revolution (father and son) and several family members in all the big wars. It even has a copy of the customs declaration from my grandpas return from Saipan. I never knew anything about my family. It’s nice to know this written record exists.

    I have a great, great, great grandfather who was a soldier in the Prussian Army and fought the Austrian Empire before he emigrated to America. Within four years of arriving, in 1858, he enlisted in the 6th Iowa Cavalry as a Company Sergeant.

    He didn’t fight Johnny Reb, however. He fought the Sioux in the Dakotas. He fought at the Battle of Whitestone Hill which isn’t all that glorious by today’s standards.

    The Battle of Whitestone Hill was the culmination of operations against the Sioux Indians in Dakota Territory in 1863. Brigadier General Alfred Sully attacked a village September 3–5, 1863. The Indians in the village included Yanktonai, Santee, and Teton (Lakota) Sioux. Sully killed, wounded, or captured 300 to 400 Sioux, including women and children, at a cost of about 60 casualties.

    He was commissioned and discharged a lieutenant in 1865. I suppose I have that “oppressor of Native Americans” stain on my DNA too.

    My ancestors came late. My earliest ancestor arrived in 1856 and my latest ancestor arrived in 1872. Every ancestor I have was either born in Europe or Iowa. In other words, I am Iowa to the core.

      I plan to share some more of the details in an inner circle post when I get the time. I realize most don’t give 2 shits about my family history – hell, I never even bothered to care – but having seen it, I want to share it with my friends.

    I checked out some Masonic records from the period and it turns out that killing savages was quite the lucrative business. They were offering $138 for a scalp with the ear attached – if you were initiated – $125 if not.

    Thats GOOD money back then. It was advertised in the papers. My, how the world’s changed, eh?
