Conservative Critics of Government Are 'Freaks' Who 'Will Need Kevlar'
American Thinker ^ | April 1, 2014 | Mark J. Fitzgibbons

Conservative critics of government are “freaks,” are “in for a pretty rough ride,” and “will need their Kevlar,” i.e., bullet-proof vests.

These statements didn’t come from the Obama administration or some radical leftwing organization. They are Facebook posts of a Republican elected official in Virginia’s Fauquier County.

Fauquier drew national attention in 2012 for charging farmer Martha Boneta with violating the law by having a birthday party for eight little girls without a permit and zoning site plan.

The highly charged posts of county supervisor Holder Trumbo came shortly after two recent events, and are emblematic of the civil war taking place within the GOP in Virginia and nationally.

One event was bipartisan passage of a Virginia state law that limits how and when local governments may require permits for farm sales and activities. Boneta and her supporters pushed for this law that gives consumers the choice of buying produce directly from farmers without red tape. The law is an embarrassing defeat for Fauquier County as well as the Virginia Association of Counties that lobbied on the taxpayers’ dime to protect zoning power abuses....

His name is HOLDER TRUMBO.

I can see he learned from both namesakes.

He thinks there’ll always be armed men around to protect him.

They don’t consult me on their advertising schemes on these websites for some reason.

for those not familiar with Martha Boneta’s struggle - and the ASSININE actions against her and other samll farmers in virginia.

Gone have a birthday party for your girl - without getting a PERMIT?

threatened fines of #25,000 a DAY

After she started fighting back - big surprise - the IRS came calling

(It looks like the socialists have been pretty successful in infiltraing the puby party too)

People like this bastard Trumbo are going to end up causing a flashpoint. He really needs to shut his mouth unless he wants to apologize.

Those who think they can fight from within the Whig Party to save it are whistling past the graveyard. The Whigs are nothing more than a faction of the Communist Party that rules Acirema.

All that goes on in Versailles on the Potomac is bread and circuses. The “Left” takes our money to fight the evil “Right”, while the “Right” takes our money to “stand on principles”, which they don’t.

I too also noticed that his namesakes are Oliver Trumbo & Eric Holder. No wonder he is pro government.

Looks a bit like law-and-order conservatism versus libertarian conservatism.

They are left wing plants. I wouldn’t be surprised if Todd Akin wasn’t one. They seem normal until elected and then they go nuts.

I think the same of Huckabee. I don’t trust him. I’d trust a used car salesman first. Why do evangelicals and christian conservatives do the same thing as liberals and vote by identity instead of history and competence?

Conservative critics of government are...“in for a pretty rough ride,” and “will need their Kevlar,”

So....he's confirming that everything they believe is true?? THAT'S the way to win an argument!

It was actually part of the quote from the reporter who was barred from covering an event. So it was part of the story. I will contact the author—that part of the article makes no sense the way it looks on my computer. The website is screwed up—I couldn’t even email them. They’ll figure it out sooner or later...

Evangelical culture is heavy on gullibility unfortunately. We are to be wise as serpents.

Conservative critics of government are “freaks,”

One of Cantor's minions?

Word 'round the campfire is that he's openly hostile to conservative Republicans in his bid to become Speaker.

I agree. The pseudo-struggle between Democrats and Republicans is just like the Roman gladiator games -- entertainment for the masses. Just to keep us cheering on "our side" against "them" so we don't realize both sides are screwing us. They are all the same, both sides of the aisle. The elite politician class.

Yes, he was governor. Not a stellar record.
