Dr. Patrick Johnston is quite a study in contradictions. He’s one of those small government, flag-waving patriots who wants to secede from the US and force women to bear a rapists child with the power of the New Christian State. He’s also a gun maniac, hate radio jock, anti LGBT, and an anti-science homeschooler. He’d feel real at home in the Republic of Gilead:
Plunderbund — Patrick Johnston, founder of the anti-abortion group Personhood Ohio, sent out an email this past weekend encouraging recipients to help his cause by “buying an assault rifle” and “some high capacity magazines and a ton of ammo.”
He wasn’t suggesting they buy just any assault rifles, mind you, but assault rifles from Johnston’s personal collection including two Chinese SKS rifles and a MAK 90. All three weapons use the same ammunition the AK 47 (7.62×39mm). Two of the rifles come with high capacity magazines and one includes a drum holding 100 rounds. He is also auctioning off 2550 rounds of ammo.
Nothing says small town American values like Chinese assault weapons. Amirite? The dominionist wing of the Republican Party has come completely off the hook. We can only hope they doom the GOP in the midterms and beyond.
