Hard to win in Montana if you mock God, guns, and the family


Imagine you’re running for office and you decide to attack Christians, pro-family activists, and gun owners.

Now imagine you’re running for Senate in Montana.

Yup, that’s Amanda Curtis, who the Democrats nominated for the Senate race (in wake of Sen. John Walsh’s plagiarism scandal). I will allow for the fact that she is likely merely mocking those who believe in God, rather than God Himself.

Still. As Pepper Brooks would say, that’s a bold strategy.

Over the last decade, liberal Democrats have insisted that there is not war on Christianity or on religion. They insist that they do not hate God or have animosity against Christians.

But this video suggested that if was no accident that delegates at the Democratic National Convention booed a vote to restore mention of God into their platform. (They did not really boo God, but they strongly opposed the measure, and also the way Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa handled the vote.)

It’s worth noting that Barack Obama wanted that language returned to the platform in an attempt to convince Americans that the Democrats did not have hostility toward religion.

But this video shows that Democrats still have a long ways to go.

I’d also like to mention that these YouTube videos by Amanda Curtis really seem to show the unvarnished liberal mind at its most snarky, condescending tone. Anyone who doesn’t agree with her position on expanding Medicaid is like Frankenstein and has an ‘abnormal brain.’ The belief that the most basic unit of society is the family left her in utter disbelief — yet that’s been a mainstay position for conservatives for generations. During a debate in the Legislature, she admits that she wanted to punch a lawmaker in the face.

Do we really need more of this kind political discourse?

It makes you wonder if Amanda Curtis is really running for the Senate seat in Montana. Maybe she’s trying to become the next Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.
