I live in Wisconsin’s newly GOP gerrymandered 6th congressional district, and this midterm election we had an especially nasty little troll seeking our seat in the US Congress. This ulcerated sore on the ass of democracy goes by the name of Glenn Grothman, and boy is he a real fucking winner!
Where do you start with a guy like Grothman? Is it his racism? After all, the guy says Kwanzaa is a white liberal plot to divide us. He knows this, he claims, because he’s asked some black people at airports in various parts of the country (probably while on ALEC junkets). If his claim is even true, then that must make him an expert on the subject!
I probably shouldn’t pick on Glenny. After all, he is fighting the good fight for me, and others of a similarly light-skinned persuasion, in his battles against the Liberal War on White Men. You know; The War on White Men, where caucasian males are facing increased deprivations at the hands of greedy minorities and women. Yeah. That one.
And speaking of women, Grothman challenges us to wonder why they get all the breaks. What kind of country do we live in that discriminates so heavily against it’s men?
Are you feeling left out because you’re not a woman or a racial minority? That’s okay. Are you gay? Grothman doesn’t give two shits about you — unless someone is advocating for you, that is. Then it’s a big fucking problem. Glenn Grothman said of Secretary of State John Kerry’s advocacy for homosexuals in Uganda, which has enacted
strict draconian anti-gay laws:
Not gay? Still feeling left out of Glenn Grothman’s narrow-minded bullshit factory? Not to worry. I think he’s got you covered. All you need to do is answer “yes” to one simple question: Do you work — as in, have a job? See! I told you we could fit you in! You’re screwed, too!
We could take the Way-Back machine back in time to when Scooter Walker and the Fitz
brothers thugs rammed through Act 10, the “law” that stripped collective bargaining and most other union rights away from Wisconsin’s public employees to show you Glenn Grothman’s disdain for the workers of this state, and that would provide plenty of ammunition right there. But we don’t need to.
Just last year (2014) Glenn Grothman introduced a bill in the Wisconsin legislature to strip away Wisconsin’s long-standing worker protection of “one day of rest in seven.” A law, I might add, that I had to invoke once at my own employer in 2013.
All of these positions are mind-numbingly horrible. They’re on record, and Glenny usually takes pride in shooting his mouth off. But not during the campaign season. Many press outlets have noted that he sequestered himself from all but the most safe of appearances. Apparently, Glenn Grothman’s handlers decided that the best way for Glenn to win was for Glenn to shut the fuck up. And the coward listened!
It’s no wonder. Even Republicans don’t like Glenn. The Huffington Post quotes a tweet from Kevin Binversie, a GOP operative and editor at the site Right Wisconsin:

I’ve given you a lot of links to check out. Believe me, if you live in Wisconsin’s 6th, you should seriously wonder what is wrong with people for electing Glenn Grothman instead of his opponent, Mark Harris.
It’s not just that Glenn Grothman is a racist, misogynistic, homophobic, anti worker piece of shit. It’s that he’s also one of the most intellectually stunted morons to hold office. He doesn’t have the intelligence to serve coffee, much less serve in congress.
