Welp, it looks like there will be no trips to Idaho for us.  If we ever go east, I think maybe we'll drive around the state.  HuffPost has published a long article about what's happening in Idaho.  As you no doubt recall, Hayden was a hot bed for the Aryan Nation back in the 1990s.  Yep, Nazis.  They eventually petered out, but that's the kind of place it is.  It's actually worse now.

Far right activists are hard at work, taking over local politics.  Moderate Republicans, tired of being harassed and threatened are quitting.  Billionaires are paying conservative Californians to move to the state.  White Nationalist Vincent James Foxx, who is leading the charge to reshape Idaho had things to say about the over turning of Roe.

Christian nationalists across the country were thrilled last week after news that Roe v. Wade is likely to be overturned by the Supreme Court, setting the stage for banning abortion in places like Idaho.

Foxx was especially worked up, posting a livestream in which he listed off his hopes for the wave of policies the decision could unleash. “They’re gonna ban sodomy!” he said. “They’re gonna ban gay marriage! They’re gonna throw gays off roofs! Women lose, God wins. Christ wins,” he said, smiling, before adding: “We shall have our theocracy soon.”

Earlier this month, in an interview with Stew Peters — a conspiracist who has called for Dr. Fauci to be executed — McGeachin shared a similar sentiment. “God calls us to pick up the sword and fight,” she said, “and Christ will reign in the state of Idaho.”

McGeachin is the Lt. Governor of Idaho.  Every time the governor leaves the state, she implements things that he has to undo upon his return.  Apparently the force of bat shit crazy is strong in Idaho, I do wish they were farther away from Washington. 

It's a long article, but it's worth reading.  It gives you an in depth view of what's at stake.


  1. well we just can't wait for that, getting my apron and bonnet ready, tossing my shoes out for the dogs! Yassa massa!

  2. I know a few sane people in Idaho--so this is even more disturbing. (and terrifying!)

  3. I have long associated Idaho with craziness -- I guess because of the Aryan Nation stuff. I have cousins who live in Idaho and I wonder how they feel about all this? (They're not people I normally communicate with, not because of politics but just because they're from a branch of the family I didn't interact much with growing up.)

  4. I think the best thing is for all these religious crazy nuts to move to one state, Idaho would be fine, and all the sane people in that state leave. Let them have their little white nationalist theocracy with all their bans (remember all sane people will have left) and watch them spiral down. And, oh yeah, every state that borders on Idaho can build a wall on the border to keep them in their preferred place. But really why should they want to leave their perfect society anyway.

  5. I saw a video of a pastor named Greg Locke who was also preaching crazy, dangerous stuff. The kind of things that inspire warped minds to pick up guns.

  6. And it's not just Idaho, unfortunately. When we spent the summer in Walla Walla, WA a few years back, we learned about the far right sects in eastern Oregon. To think I'd always thought of Oregon as such a blue state -- and it still is, due to the large population of Portland. But still, there's a lot of crazy even in the lovely Pacific NW. Sigh....
