It’s accidental fascism so its okay… except it wasn’t an accident

Remember the Washington State proposal to give Sheriffs the right to search gun owners’ homes once a year? The author of that bill said that he didn’t know the bill he sponsored included that provision. Those darn staffers wrote it without telling him. It was accidental, not deliberate fascism, so it was okay. “I made a mistake,” state Senator Adam Kline said. “I frankly should have vetted this more closely.”

The only thing is, he was lying through his teeth. It wasn’t dumb ass, accidental fascism. It was evil, deliberate fascism. How do we know? He sponsored bills with the identical language in 2005 and 2009. Different staffers, same language.

Frankly, I am not that impressed with the argument by a lawmaker that accidentally proposed fascism should be shrugged off. That said, this wasn’t accidental at all. It was quite deliberate.

This begs the question, why would a lawmaker lie about his intent regarding a bill he has been sponsoring again and again? If he is proud of what he is doing, should he be promoting his work rather than lying about it? Of course, unless…. If he is working against the desires of his constituency and the purposes for which they elected him, he would have to lie, wouldn’t he?

    I suspect he is working for the desires of his constituency. It’s Seattle! Moscow on the Sound. His comment was one of those, “wink, wink, nudge, nuge,” directed at his constituency. He’s lying to the people who didn’t vote for him, not that it matters.

    It would be worthwhile to subject Senator Kline to the joys of an impromptu search by law enforcement looking for various items of questionable legality. Maybe a few car stops and searches too. Sieg Heil, Kline.

    This POS is one of the worst of the Statists/Socialists in the Washington State legislature. He was on a panel to discuss voter fraud. When the sugestion was made that voter rolls be compared to jury selection lists to weed out those not eligible to vote, he walked out of the meeting, because he apparantly thought it unfair to discriminate against illegal voters!

    When I lived in Bremerton I know they used to use the lib politicians as platforms for laws to see if they could get it passed in calipornia. So people were paid to stand at the malls and major stores to get petition signatures from ANYBODY for new Washington state measures on the ballot. This is probably one of those. You never knew where the money was coming from.
