There was a comment from Great Falls GOP legislative candidate Steve Gist on the ECB Facebook page recently that went like this:
“Please be aware that Democratic candidates in Great Falls and around the state are going around claiming they are either Independents or Moderates.
My constituents are telling me this.
DO NOT Be FOOLED by these deceptive practices.”
Good advice. Don’t be fooled.
So starting today E-City Beat will be running a series of reminders of what local candidates were saying before campaign season started, when they thought no one was paying attention, demonstrating that the local Democrat machine is STILL dominated by the same far left ideas and candidates for state legislature that Cascade County/Great Falls voters rejected in 2020.
We’ll start with Barbara Bessette, who lost her run for re-election in 2020 to Steven Galloway in Great Falls HD24 where she is running again this cycle.
Here’s a charming Tweet from Bessette. Makes one wonder how she could possibly work with fellow legislators if elected, given her opinion of them here.
“F*** yes”, agrees Bessette, our U.S. Supreme Court “is an active shooter” and police make a habit of filling Black men with “60 holes”.
Apparently Bessette doesn’t think much of white men, so why is she asking for their votes?
Finally here’s Bessette wearing her “Hail Satan” shirt. She thinks it’s cute and funny and mocks anyone who considers it offensive.
I wonder if she would be so cavalier and snarky if someone posed publicly in a shirt with a mocking portrayal of indigenous peoples’ religious beliefs, or a cute cartoon ridiculing Islam.
Stay tuned. More to come.
