Montana's Governor Schweitzer(D): "Romney’s father from ‘polygamy commune’ in Mexico"
Helena Independent Record ^ | 4.21.12 | Mike Dennison

Posted on 04/21/2012 4:44:33 PM PDT by tuckrdout

.Gov. Brian Schweitzer, talking Friday to a national news website, said Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney might shy from talking about his family’s Mexican roots because they came from a “polygamy commune” in Mexico.

Schweitzer made the remark in an interview with The Daily Beast, a news and opinion website, after being asked whether Montana might be a swing state during this year’s 2012 election.

According to The Daily Beast, Schweitzer said Montana likely would vote for Romney, but that Romney, a Mormon, might have trouble nationally because his father, George Romney, was “born on a polygamy commune in Mexico.”

Schweitzer, a Democrat, said later that he wasn’t misquoted, and that his comments had nothing to do with Romney’s faith or his church, which does not condone polygamy.

Schweitzer said he was describing the dilemma facing Romney, who is in trouble with Hispanic voters because “he took an ultra-right-wing position on immigration during the (Republican) primary.”

The problem with your definition of “bigot” is that it is overbroad, in that it is impossible for any person secure in their own beliefs to avoid the charge. Consider the Merriam Webster definition:

“a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.”

Parse this: What is “obstinate” versus “settled?” What is “intolerant” versus “not gullible?” When is a strongly held “opinion” NOT “bigotry?” What is a “prejudice,” and how is it different from “belief?” If there is a real difference, do you think most people understand its use accurately, or do you think it is a term easily co-opted by the left to suppress the expression of Christian/conservative belief in the public square?

Put another way, if rejecting Romney based on a sense of Christian civic duty is bigotry to you, how then does the sincere Christian believe both you and Christ? He did not instruct us to hide our lights under a bushel, but to let them shine for all the world to see. Not in the sense of pride, but as a choice we make to honor God in what we do, whether public or private.

Yet you pride yourself on the privacy of your religion, but that neatly compartmentalized life is not the way Christ taught us to live. The law of God is good. It heals the sick, and gives strength to the weak. It is meant for everyone, to benefit everyone, and to lock it away in some dark corner and not live it out boldly in both our public and private lives, is to deny medicine to those who need it. It is an act of unlove. As CS Lewis would say, false humility is as damning as hubris, and is in fact just another form of hubris, and not humility at all. God gives us gifts, and he would not have done so unless he meant for us to use them. You have worked on a farm. What happens to a cow who withholds her milk, or a hen who won’t lay her eggs?

By the same token, if God has warned Christians against false prophets and other mortals aspiring to godhood (and he has so warned us), and warned us against those who replace the Christ of Scripture with some lesser being of their own invention (and he has so warned us), is it not the utmost in hubris to ignore all those warnings and voluntarily GIVE POWER to those very individuals whom God said were out to destroy our very souls? While criticizing those who DO heed his warnings as “bigots?”

Put another way, what earthly end can be so important that we should surrender our souls for it? What did Jesus say? What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul? What will it profit us to be rid of Obama if we have to permanently scar our eternal souls to do it, by knowingly throwing our support behind the very type of person Jesus warned us against? Some obedience to Christ is very difficult, the little decisions day by day to be honest, loving, and good. But this one is easy. Don’t give an enemy of Christ any power over you. You will regret it, and to the extent your decision affects the rest of us, we will regret it too.

You and svcw are quite the pair.

I did a little investigating(thanks to BrownDeer) and read some of your previous posts(especially Special Witnesses of Christ (Real LDS/Mormon)http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/religion/2665706/posts?q=1&;page=51)

What a pair of hypocrites you two are.

I don't pretend to be a preacher but I know you two are too self righteous and too flawed to be badgering other people for their sins.

So try removing the beam from your eyes before you remove the speck from your brother's eye

I didn’t take it as a Romney rebuttal. What I imagined was a Rumpelstiltskin type character stamping his feet in frustration and, not getting the joke, furiously typing his next barrage.

You might have something worth sharing, but you present it as a jumbled muddle and it’s hard to understand your point. I did a little research and the Wikipedia articles diminished your standing as a factual source. You’ve not rebutted that or directed to any clarifying information. I get the whole Romney RINO thing, but this military service meme is silly. No need to reply unless you’ve got some lucid info.

You didn’t say anything. Who were those men in Romney’s direct line that served, his sons, father, grandfather, great grandfather and who?

LOL, a freeper making a negative statement about an anti-conservative, pro-abortion, anti-gun, pro-homosexual liberal, and it outrages you, amazing.

I guess we conservatives will just have to live with your disapproval.

Aside from the inaccurate characterization of Mitt Romney, as shown above, it does seem fair to note that what "outrages" me is the cheap shot taken at the man.

It is one thing to assault the man's positions on the issues; it is quite another to indulge in below-the-belt attacks upon him...

No one is making “below the belt attacks” on the scummy leftist, Reagan hating, anti-conservative, democrat fund raising, Planned Parenthood fund raising, Mitt Romney.

You’re not going to get me to defend Romney, but it is you who didn’t say anything.

Imagine that we’re talking about Tom Thomas. Though American, his family lives in outside the US for most of its history - territories and then say Canada. Looking at his great-grandfather (lived and died outside of the US), grandfather, father, Tom Thomas, and sons none of them served.

So that’s the narrative, but it proves nothing other than that Tom Thomas’ four generations didn’t enter the US military. You have to tie that to some other statistic to make it make sense. If the population stats are 50-905+ of four generation Americans at least one male member served in the military you might have something.

I mean Al Gore and John Kerry served in the US Armed Forces. What did that prove? Bad thinking doesn’t make a good argument. That’s my point. Don’t shoot the messenger and don’t hold a grudge against me because that FReeper spanked you with a solid retort. Instead improve your argument and have it make sense in context. Otherwise it is just nonsense and nonsense is the realm of liberals, not us.

I will allow that observation to stand, without further comment.

Well, except to note that if this is indicative of your level of serious analysis...oh, never mind...

“the scummy leftist, Reagan hating, anti-conservative, democrat fund raising, Planned Parenthood fund raising, Mitt Romney.”

That is careful analysis of five years of research and reading on the man, something that we have documented in the freerepublic Romney files. The videos alone shows that.

Either you don’t know the lifelong Mitt Romney, or you are pretending not to, to promote the campaign image of him.

You certainly don't know much about reseach, if you don't even know about all the people in the Romney that served in our country's military. Why don't you know much about him? It's all out there in the public domain!

I'm not voting for Romney, but there have been a few very misinformed and ignorant people posting some very strange nonsense on this thread...

Clinton, Carter and Gore all had reasons for changing their minds, those are not flip flops...

Romney’s family could not have fought in the Revolutionary War as mormons, there where no momorns until 1830.

Sorry honey George Romney’s parents were polygamists.

Really? How so?

I’m used to Romneybots disrespecting American values and veterans among many other things...

...no Romney man has ever served the United States as a military man, that is about 180 years of unbroken cult devotion that needs to be looked at.

Miles Romney arrived in this country 131 years ago and I count at least 16 descendants of Miles Romney that haved served in our country's military branches during this past century including the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines.

No mormons fought in the Revolutionary War, there where no mormons until 1830.
Clinton and Gore said “I was pro-life and for these reasons I am now pro-choice” that is not a flip flop.
Romney said “I have always been pro-life”, when he for decades has supported pro-abortion groups, and legislation.
You say “I am not a Romney supporter BUT.....”
Sorry anything after the BUT is misdirection.
psst, you need to re-examine your genealogy........really you do.

No kidding? So, what's your point?

psst, you need to re-examine your genealogy........really you do.

psst, where's the error? Really, show us!

Romney said “I have always been pro-life”, when he for decades has supported pro-abortion groups, and legislation.

We all know that, so what does that have to do with his family serving in the military?

No mormons fought in the Revolutionary War, there where no mormons until 1830.

Are you trying to say that no Mormons had ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary War? Are you serious? Mitt Romney's 4th great grandfathers Amos Stanton & Seth Kellogg were both Revolutionary War Patriots.

You said Romney’s mormon family served in the Revolutionary War.
Mitt did not serve.
George did not serve.
Grandfathers did not serve.
Great grandfathers did not serve.
Really, explaining what a flip flop.
You keep stating you are not a Romney supporter, yet spend time and words defending him, therefore “I am not a Romney supporter but.........” misdirection or lie if you prefer.
You want to support the liberal called Romney be my guest, I do not support liberals.

Interesting since the Mitt Romneys came to the US in the 1830s to join up with Joseph Smith.
That is not what you said said you said mormons fought in the Revolutionary War, you may have misstated, I’ll give you that.

Stop your lies. Where did I say that? Please don't change my words.

The fact remains that Mitt's ancestor's Seth Kellogg and Amos Stanton were both Revolutionary War Patriots!

You keep stating you are not a Romney supporter, yet spend time and words defending him, therefore “I am not a Romney supporter but.........” misdirection or lie if you prefer.

DON'T CALL ME A LIAR, AGAIN! If you want to remain ignorant, then fine, but DO NOT EVER CALL ME A LIAR!

If you were not the person who said mormons served in the Revolutionary War, I apologize, I thought it was you.
I did not call you a liar, I said “misdirection or liar if you prefer”.
I will stand by my first statement that you are spending a lot of time defending Romney when you claim not to support him.
If you are just misdirecting, ok.

Mitt Romney wasn't born until 1947 and his Romney ancestors didn't come to this country until the 1840's. You can't get anything right, can you?

Ok, here is what I said.
Mitt Romney did not serve.
George Romney did not serve.
Mitt’s grandfathers did not serve.
Mitt’s great grandfathers did not serve.
Before that they were not in this country.

Mitt Romney did not serve.

Did you?

George Romney did not serve.

He was ten years old during WWI. He was working for a U.S. Senator in 1930 and had a family a couple years later. About 90% of the people living in this country did not serve in WWII.

Mitt’s grandfathers did not serve.

Neither did mine. Gaskell was almost 50 years old during WWI and Harold LaFount probably wasn't drafted because he had four daughters to support.

Another lie. Charles Robison served under Cpt. Jonathan Page. His wife Rosetta received a Civil War widow's pension.

Mitt’s great grandfathers did not serve.

Are you sure about that?

Before that they were not in this country.

and the lies just keep on coming! like I already said and provided DAR links to, at least two of his ancestors were Patriots of the Revolutionary War.

Mitt did not serve. George did not serve. Grandfathers did not serve. Great grandfathers did not serve.

Mitt's sons are not currently serving, but what's the point of this argument? Are its purveyors claiming a conspiracy?

Context matters. Could any of them have served? How rare is military service in general and other the time periods stated?

The problem with this line of reasoning is it is stupid and proves nothing special without any context. If 50-90%+ of Americans under similar circumstances had served in the military over this time period then you'd have a story. But, this meme alone and in isolation tells us nothing.

Without any context or comparison you don't get any conclusion and those purporting this sound like goofs.

Mitt Romney did not serve in any capacity in the US military, neither did his father, or grandfathers.
There does not have to be a war to serve in the military.
Romney’s family did not come to the US until the 1800s, the immigrated from Europe.

It appears to be really important to you that Romney’s family served in some capacity in the US military so If having a distant cousin or anyone with his name who served in the military is a way for you to say that the Romney’s served ok.

Good bye and good luck

Mitt Romney did not serve in any capacity in the US military, neither did his father, or grandfathers.

So now, you change your story again? So, it's now down to only Mitt, his father and two grandfathers, but only one of those two grandfathers was a Romney. So, three Romney men did not serve in our military, one who was only ten years old during WWI and the other was living in Mexico during the prime of his life. ;-)

You still didn't answer the question. In what capacity have you served our country's military?

It appears to be really important to you that Romney’s family served in some capacity in the US military so...

No, it is not important to me at all, but when idiots choose to mislead and lie to people, I will call them out. It was stated earlier in this thread no Romney had ever served, and also stated that Mormons do not serve in our military, yet I showed at least 16 Romney's in this line that have!

...If having a distant cousin or anyone with his name who served in the military is a way for you to say that the Romney’s served ok.

NONE of them are DISTANT cousins!

I never said that.

I said: Romney did not serve, his father did not serve and his grandfathers and great grandfathers did not serve. Those are the facts, like it or not.

If you want to keep bringing up relatives beyond that, be my guest.

Bottom line for me is that Romney is a liberal, and I don't vote for liberals.

Good bye

...and great grandfathers did not serve. Those are the facts, like it or not.

but his great grandfather Charles Edward Robison did serve! That is a fact, whether you like it or not!



Still waiting for your answer...

In what branch of our country's military did you serve?

Brown Deer,

Excellent post!

For the record, I am not a "Romneybot." In fact, I would have preferred either Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich as president (although I believe either--and especially the latter--would have found it much more difficult to win the general election).

I just fear for our country if Barack Obama is given another four years in office; especially considering that it would be an unfettered Barack Obama, free of any constraint due to considerations of his re-electability in 2016 (since he would be ineligible for a third term).

So I don’t misrepresent what you have said, be so kind as to clarity which Charles Robinson you are speaking about.

Was it the CR (Charles Robinson) who served in the Colored Military Troops 6th Infantry, New York, 1861-64.

Or the CR who served in the Regular Army, 1862-64 and deserted in 1864.

Or the CR who served in the 14th Infantry, Tennessee, 1861-66.

Or the CR who served in the Regular Army, Tennessee as a private, 1863.

Or the CR who served in the Regular Army, Missouri, in 1865.

Or the CR who served in the 17th Infantry, Michigan,New York 1863

Or the CR who served in the 14th Heavy Artillery Division, New York, 1866-1868.

Did I serve in the military as an active member - no.
When I was of the age to join and it was not easy for women to enlist when there was not an active war going on.
I attempted to enlist after high school, rejected.
After I received my college degree I attempted to enlist again and was again rejected.
Most women who were accepted had a specific skill set that was need, being an industrial psych/poli sci major wasn’t what they needed.
I am sure today it would be different.
There is not a single man in my family as far back as can be traced that has not served in the military for this country (three of the four lines of my family can be traced to 1625-1650 (The New World), one line came here in the 1910 and began serving then.
I have had women in my family who during active wars where able to served for the duration in some capacity.

Romney is not about his service or non service is is about his liberalism and I will not vote for a liberal where he has an R or a D by their name.
