More Crazy Talk from Noem’s campaign

I wonder if this letter also came with a shovel? I enjoyed this line;

But these sacred principles are now in jeopardy.

They sure are, because of you. Like when a majority of South Dakotans voted for Rec MJ and you getting the high court to strike it down. Or the AG’s office ignoring a lawsuit against Amendment C which would give power to the minority. This isn’t limited government, it is authoritarianism.

Oh, it is gets better;

Government is crushing the economy.

Yes, because of the billions in Federal Aid that flowed into the state. And when you had an opportunity to help low income peeps pay rent with some of that money, you gave that money back. Utter stupidity and callousness.

At this point I would prefer an ANTIFA rioter over you as governor.

Minnesota lost 2.3% of its population to covid, while South Dakota lost 3.3% of its population to covid. Minnesota shutdown while South Dakota, for the most part, did not during the height of covid. Over 2900 people died in South Dakota due to covid, but based on Minnesota’s numbers and a reflection of Noems policies it’s fair to say that 1% of the population in South Dakota died because of covid and Noem’s policies. This is roughly 882 South Dakotans . Who are these people? Shouldn’t we be talking about them? What did they die for? Freedom? Liberty? How free are they now? You could call them victims of a just war, but was it when Minnesota won the same war with less casualties on per capital basis? When you cross the border into Minnesota do you become less free, I don’t think, but Noem would want you to think so. Noem’s legacy will be those 882 deaths…. Oh, and that smirk she had on her face when asked on FOX as to whether attendees at the 2020 Sturgis bike rally would be required to wear masks….

Actually, that’s .23% and .33%, but it’s still all relative and we are still talking roughly 882 deaths.

“‘882 deaths’?”….. “Say, how many abortions did we have in South Dakota last year?”…..

Seems more like a sermon than political. Maybe sing a hymn to break it up some. Can we leave after the collection plate?

Let’s see now.

That’s 882 excess deaths from Noem advocated freedom to catch Covid.

That’s 1130 gun deaths (2019)–up sharply from 75 in 2010–
as Noem touts freedom laws to own and carry guns.

That’s 132 (2021) South Dakota traffic deaths–22 in Pennington County with its Noem touted freedom Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

And that’s 106 South Dakota resident abortions (125 total) in 2020.,those%20were%20in%20Pennington%20County.&text=RAPID%20CITY%2C%20S.D.%20(KOTA),County%20over%20the%20last%20year.

Riots, pandemic, insurrection, inflation, war, and now gun violence is up. If you ask me, the apocalyptic Badlands Pawn was ahead of its time. #TimingIsEverything

That’s 130–not 1130–gun deaths (2019)–up sharply from 75 in 2010–as Noem touts freedom laws to own and carry guns.

She’s right. Covid didnt shut down not only our economy, but the global economy. MUCH more harmful to us than the actual deaths from Covid. Just look at China right now! They are not allowing anyone on the streets, and yet Covid is increasing. What they are doing now is going to have a huge effect on everyone on earth, for what? A virus that humans can’t control?

Gun deaths are up, and I think it will continue to rise. Why? A lot of these shootings are related to gang and drug violence, and we have more and more people coming here from Democratic strongholds like Shitcago, and bringing their crime here. Unlike all you on here, I commend the SFPD for trying to keep us all safe. Unfortunately, all the Lib’rals at a certain Mexican restaurant parking lot won’t “snitch” on the people responsible for that shooting, and the police can’t solve it. Do you think those people committed that one crime and decided to stop? Doubtful. What other things are they up to right now?

Why do you hate the Sturgis Rally? You do realize it isn’t put on by anyone within our great state, right? It is a coming together of people who like to ride motorcycles, and would have happened wether it was endorsed or not. But, that wouldn’t fit your agenda, now would it?

Now to abortions. This is a made up issue created by the Dems for nothing more than vote getting. This shouldn’t be political. A loss of any life is horrible, but doing it on purpose to something YOU created is…I can’t begin to imagine how awful it must make people feel knowing what they are doing.

Just for the record, Republicans were the ones who originally spearheaded abortion legalization and PP. Mostly for racist reasons (wanting blacks to get abortions) but they also believed in privacy rights. Now Republicans seem to be concerned about every thing you are doing in your private lives. It’s no longer a party of liberty, freedom and conservative fiscal policies, it’s just authoritarism.

Say, “Noem’s Fault”, do you know why China is currently having the problems it is having? It because the vaccine they created sucks by western standards. They came up with their own vaccine, due to nationalistic chauvinism, and their failure at that has brought them back to March of 2020.

Gun violence is up because there are too many guns, period.

I don’t hate the Sturgis Rally. Although, some fellow feminists once got mad at me for going to one recently, which is a story for another day. In fact, I’ve been to Sturgis during the rally in three different years (’75, ’12’, and ’18) and will be going again this summer.

You are right, however, that abortion shouldn’t be political, because the legislative body that deliberates abortion should only consist of a woman and her doctor and not a body of a bunch of middle age white men who happen to be congregated in Pierre, Lincoln, Bismarck, St. Paul, Des Moines, or wherever. #TrustWomen

“What about Cheyenne?”…. “Don’t forget about Cheyenne”… (“Everybody always forgets about Cheyenne”… (…”And Helena”… 🙁 ))
