Washington state rep discussed starting attacks, surveillance with right wingers
10 replies, posted
A Washington state Republican politician took part in private discussions with rightwing figures about carrying out surveillance, “psyops” and even violent attacks on perceived
political enemies, according to chat records obtained by the Guardian.
State representative Matt Shea, who represents Spokane Valley in the Washington state house, participated in the chats with three other men. All of the men used screen
aliases – Shea’s was “Verum Bellator”, Latin for true warrior. The Guardian confirmed the identity of those in the chat by cross-checking phone numbers attached to the Signal
The chats on the messaging app Signal took place in the days leading up to a supposed “Antifa revolt” on 4 November 2017. Throughout late October, far-right media outlets
had been stoking fears of political conflict on the basis of planned peaceful protests by a small leftist group.
Apart from violence, the men extensively discussed tactics of surveillance and intimidation. Shea, the elected Republican legislator, did not demur from any of these
suggestions. He also appeared willing to participate directly in surveillance of activists. When the leftist revolt failed to materialize, Shea did not rethink his conspiratorial
views and instead blamed the weather.
This guy: GOP Rep. created manifesto calling for a Christian state and death of infidels
And why is this creature still in office? this much evidence would have had him fucking arrested and thrown into a dark cell here, before he could so much as post another message.
Enemy of the State.
Taking notes from COINTELPRO I see.
Eastern Washington is on a different planet compared to western Washington. They're as conservative as any southern state.
He's white. In the Celebrity's America, there is 0 police time dedicated to white terrorism unless the bullets are already flying.
It's the same Matt Shea who wants Trump to be his senpai ?
I saw he reps Spokane valley, not the city so he's technically not calling to murder his constituents, but he still wants to torture and murder people that live near him
same thing down south here in Oregon, eastern oregon is very similar
More like Adolf Hitler.
Sounds like a good time to throw a few “conspiracy to commit acts of terror” charges at him.
Eastern and western Oregon are almost like two totally separate countries both culturally and ecologically. Eastern Oregon is nothing but rural shrubland and desert while western Oregon has a lot of cities and is largely coastal or part of the Willamette Valley which is heavily forested and humid. Eastern Oregon rather sucks in comparison.
