A Republican senator from Missouri posted a photo of a large gun on his Facebook page last week, leading to an online discussion about guns, abortion and liberals. Missouri State Senator Brian Nieves posted the gun picture and then explained that one of his constituents “brought some of his personal Arsenal [sic] for me to look at and Drewel [sic] upon.”
One commenter wrote that Nieves was a “white racist redneck” and another, a priest, said that he hoped Nieves would “realize that true patriotism is more than carrying a deadly weapon.” Nieves responded by accusing the commenters of working for a local newspaper and then called them dumb.
“There is NO Possible way ya’ll are real people who really believe what you’ve written on my page,” Nieves wrote. “I’m simply not falling for it. You two are obviously just people who are pretending to be that stupid in the hopes of drawing me in to some senseless argument and then try to snatch a quote for the RFT or some other lib-rag. Sorry, I’m on to you, you over played your cards and made your comments far too stupid.”
“Barry... I honestly wonder, and I'm being sincere about this, if liberalism is indeed a mental disorder. A person commits a heinous crime, the kind we hear about in the news, and they are not allowed to be executed but an innocent baby who is wrapped in the comfort of his/her mother's womb - Having been created by God - can be literally ripped apart, viciously murdered, and this "Man of God" supports it?!?!?! WOW!!”
Nieves continued to argue with the priest and also wrote that an abortion to save the life of the mother was “a matter of convenience.”
The priest eventually tired of the argument, Raw Story reported.
“I am perhaps too old and tired for this debate this evening,” the priest wrote. “You don’t seem to understand, or wish to understand what I said about education or providing birth control so abortion is no longer necessary. But then again, you couldn’t scream your disgust at me if you did.”
