Congressman Greg Gianforte, Doppleganger J.K. Simmons from “Whiplash”
So it begins. The establishment of “Fear Itself”
Following the illegal oppression of the right to protest by a foreign country, and months of all those accusations of fake news by the fake chief executive since holding office on January 20th 2017 (and a reprehensible remark by the DHS chief John Kelly on press protocol at the Coast Guard graduation ceremony).
A reporter from the Guardian, Ben Jacobs, attempted to get answers from the Republican candidate about aspects of the Expendable American Health Care Act after he wouldn’t divulge any details or opinions the last time he was asked by another reporter from that publication.
Initially trying to blow him off by passing the reporter to an aide of his, as is the usual procedure for these sold out miscreants, elected and running, not even a second later, he let is inner heel wrestler personality take over.
The candidate literally body slammed a reporter. In front of witnesses and most damnably in front of a Fox News affiliate:
At that point, Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him. Faith, Keith and I watched in disbelief as Gianforte then began punching the reporter. As Gianforte moved on top of Jacobs, he began yelling something to the effect of, “I’m sick and tired of this!”
Jacobs scrambled to his knees and said something about his glasses being broken. He asked Faith, Keith and myself for our names. In shock, we did not answer. Jacobs then said he wanted the police called and went to leave. Gianforte looked at the three of us and repeatedly apologized. At that point, I told him and Scanlon, who was now present, that we needed a moment. The men then left.
Here is a dramatization of the account above:
That bastard who feloniously assaulted the reporter was charged with misdemeanor assault citation by the county sheriff, who is also a donor to his campaign.
The day after, Greg Gianforte won the election.
Something tells me that this motherfucking prick assaulted this reporter knowing full well that he would get away with it and the people would turn out big for him, and he assumed right. For he has just exploited the momentum gifted to him by Fighurehead Trump and his persistent maligning, libeling of the free press who declared was the enemy of the American People.
As I wrote about of extreme precedence, this follows recent excessive charges and convictions of those who work and yearn for accountability from our snowflake representatives during Trump’s currently brief reign. Like the arrest and sentencing of an elderly woman protester from Code Pink, laughing out loud during Jeff Sessions hilarious confirmation hearing. A reporter who got roughhoused and handcuffed after attempting to question HHS Secretary Tom Price, who later praised the police for their ordered repression. A reporter from the National Press Club trying to ask questions at an FCC hearing got thrown against and pinned to a wall by security guards and was later thrown into a bathroom and was interrogated by them.
And here is the result of these felonious assaults on democracy. The election victory of an entitled, insecure, obscenely and undeservedly rich and inherently corrupt, violent snowflake asshole. This is not a dystopian novel, comic book or movie anymore. This is reality. There is going to be more of this. In fact, N.Y.C.’s own Mayor Big Slow De Blasio has been demonstrating passive aggressive oppressive tactics for the past few months when all investigations were dropped against him for his pay for play and slush funding approach to governing.
If anything, and judging by Fox News showing solidarity after the initial shock of the free press smackdown by Greg, this might light a long overdue fire under the bottom line attentive asses of the corporate news media. Thanks to the suplex heard around the world, it has gave birth to a new market of hardcore, unapologetic, uncompromising investigative journalism. If not, then they better arm reporters like Ben Jacobs with brass knuckles and baseball bats.
Apparently, the newly elected congressman had endorsements from 3 major dailies from the state and had an early advantage because of early voting. So Greg “the Lame Undertaker” Gianforte choke slammed a journalist knowing full well he had the election locked and the support of major newspapers, of a obsequious sheriff who donated to his campaign to bring down serious charges and despairingly, a subservient public who supports fascist acts and violent intimidation to oppress reporters and dissenters.
What Gianforte did is what mobsters used to do to anyone who would question their intentions. Mario Puzo couldn’t write this shit up. Figurehead Donald Trump has taken his experience working with the Italian and Russian mafias to build his empire in NYC and beyond and has now instilled it in his administration and is infecting the machinations of government processes and local politics in the states of America.
The Congressman beat up that reporter because he knew he already won the election.
These political gangsters have to be whacked, stat.
