In our continuing series of articles concerning state public officials’ and political candidate social media pages, we’re highlighting Democrat Melissa Smith, who lost to GOP incumbent Fred Anderson in Cascade County’s HD 20 in 2020.
Here, in someone else’s poke at Governor Gianforte, Smith equates a vague reference to a ‘gun’ as an example of a ‘cult of toxic individualism raging’ across the land.
And here is Smith’s take on the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement service and the use of the Senate filibuster – ‘yes yes yes yes’ they’re examples of ‘white supremacy’.
Never mind that Smith’s own party, the Democrats, used the filibuster in the U.S. Senate over 300 times last year alone. Does that mean that Kamala Harris is a ‘white supremacist’?
Interestingly, Smith is still using the @Melissa4HD20 Twitter handle. We take that as a fairly obvious sign that she intends to be back on the ballot next year.
We also see this as the obvious reason that every single Democrat on the ballot in Great Falls lost last year.
