Sounds like Stephen Lowell is making terroristic threats.  He should be investigated.
 
2022-08-19 9:13:03 PM  
Here's a thought.

It should be law that any declared candidate for any office that uses hate speech or stochastic terrorism in any context immediately shall be stricken from the ballot.

It's about integrity in gaming elections... voting with bullets is what these farkstains consider integrity.

Too bad MN isn't a "stand-your-ground" state.  There could be good times if it was....

Why should he be investigated for a crime that someone else noticed?

/He should call Bob Loblaw.

"It's your fault for noticing I was talking like a seditious jackass!"

Well, that and the exhortation on Twitter to shoot Federal agents. BTW: the Feds really don't like that, and they sort of have authority OVER the States in a lot of areas. Drawing their ire...well...how are you financing this campaign, because you just drew the Eye of Sauron, dude.

I think I found it, but I'm not sure: Stephen Lowell - Minnesota Candidate - Transparency USA

Tamara Schuette must be his aunt or something, bless her kind heart.

He's got $4,149 in cash on hand, so this Rupar fellow probably gave him the biggest bonerreturn on investment.

Well I've played with bb guns at the County Fair and at the Canadian National Exhibition and those bbs left a lot of hanging chads on those star targets. I'd hate to see how they get sorted down-ticket. If they can't use bullets then they better hope the ballot paper is crisp, maybe with some bamboo fibers in it.

This was a lot funnier when it was a sitcom joke and not the primary (and often only) defense of a major US political party.

My dad always told me to dress for the job you want.

Apparently Stephen Lowell wants to be assistant manager at a tractor supply store.

It was nice of him to get all dressed up to blow a dog whistle at the crowd.

I was going to make a snappy remark but MN is 4th place in Ag exports according to this .pdf brochure so maybe he kinda is though.

As someone who actually married their Canadian girl friend - I believe you.  Honestly, I hope he's OK.  I haven seen him post in at least half a year.

christians sure do love violence as their reaction to everything. I figure that their jeebus is just a violent sack of shiat.

christians, can you tell me about how jeebus murdered people he didn't agree with?

It has a definition. There are hate speech laws on the books around the world that accomplish this. Your criticism that a person acting in bad faith can undermine its intent through wilful interpretation could apply to any law. Your objection is purely a result of a lack of experience living with effective hate crime legislation.

It's too easy for agent provocateurs to use a rather normal speech by a genuine candidate to commit stochastic terrorism "on behalf of that candidate" to get that candidate to be stricken from the ballot.

Well, I mean thats the pickle, isn't it? That's what the fight is about?

Seems to me that's exactly what 70+ million pieces of contemptible shiat are fighting for and a portion of us always are.
