Unhinged Senate Candidate Scolds Opponent: 'The Majority Doesn't Like Unhinged'

Another Republican who doesn't own a mirror

Meet Wisconsin State Senator Leah Vukmir.

Vukmir is the GOP establishment candidate that wants to run against U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin. She is also an esteemed member of ALEC, currently sitting on their Board of Directors.

She is running a particularly nasty and negative campaign against both Baldwin and her primary opponent, Kevin Nicholson.

Not only has her campaign been nasty but she regularly takes dives off the deep end, such as the commercial that she's been running with a handgun sitting on her dining table like a centerpiece. She reportedly has the gun because she feels unsafe due to people being upset that she and her fellow fascists have been taking away people's rights for eight years.

Alrighty then!

Vukmir also irresponsibly and visciously attacked Baldwin because Baldwin wouldn't blindly approve Gina Haspel as the CIA director, even though Haspel is all for torture, going so far as accusing Baldwin of teaming up with terrorists. Or maybe Vukmir likes Haspel because they're both all in for torture. Either way, Vukmir accused Baldwin of teaming of with the terrorists because of it, a stance she refuses to apologize for or even walk back today.

Alrighty then! But wait, with all things Vukmir, there's more. There's always more.

In case voters weren't sure that Vukmir was as crazy as an outhouse rat, she made sure she jumped the shark in the column in the right wing Daily Caller. It is breathtaking in its hypocrisy and utter lack of insight:

The national Democratic Party and liberal members of Congress who are allies of Senator Tammy Baldwin, such as Maxine Waters, are openly advocating for violence against citizens they disagree with. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also learned this past week it is no longer acceptable to dine in public with your family if you aren’t OK wearing one of those pink hats or raising your fist in the name of Resistance.

While Democrats whine about the demeanor of President Trump, their party is led by intolerance fueled by anger and hatred. It’s obvious that they failed to learn the lessons Wisconsin Democrats suffered through in 2010: The majority doesn’t like unhinged.

Unfortunately, we learned firsthand that when the unhinged cannot win on the issues, they will attempt to win through the politics of personal destruction.

America is winning in so many ways with President Trump — from appointing judges who believe in the Constitution and delivering historic tax cuts to cutting regulations that strangle our small businesses and telling foreign nations that we will not bow to them. Because they can’t battle these wins, liberal ugliness will get worse before it gets better; desperate liberal politicians like Tammy Baldwin know no other way.

Maxine Waters’ fiery diatribe, the restaurant owner in Southwest Virginia, Twitter trolls who hide behind their phones and keyboards are only the beginning.

Conservatives have stood up to the unhinged left before, and we cannot be afraid to do so again. Intimidation, scare tactics and threats of violence didn’t stop the Walker-GOP agenda in Wisconsin, and it will not stop President Trump from draining the swamp, either.

Anyone else see the problem with saying that voters don't do unhinged as a defense for Trump?

Vukmir has already come out in favor of torture, of gutting Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security and kicking millions of people out of health care coverage. Is it any surprise she is equally OK with ripping babies from the arms of their mothers and keeping them in cages in ungodly environments? I mean, what does she care? Those babies are neither white nor wealthy.

I just hope that she is correct on this one occasion and that the voters do not like unhinged. Then she can go back under the rock she crawled out from underneath.
