Nutjob: Call for Killings by US Christian Fundamentalist Lawmaker Nets FBI Probe

A fundamentalist Christian US State Representative has been targeted for investigation by the FBI after the lawmaker’s call for a holy war to kill unbelievers was made public.

The Washington state Republican politician became the subject of FBI scrutiny after a how-to guide he penned on killing people that did not agree with his fundamentalist Christian beliefs was brought to the attention of the law enforcement branch of the US government.

GOP Representative Matt Shea, a five-term Washington state lawmaker, circulated among his devotees a carefully-written manual describing how to conduct a holy war in the US, according to the Seattle Times.

Called “Biblical Basis for War,” Shea’s broadsheet offered a bullet-point list on how to inculcate a Christian theocratic movement as a means to kill off any who oppose a hypothetical holy war in America.

In Shea’s flier, his Christian crusaders are first instructed to offer their enemies those demands by which a surrender will be accepted, including: “stop all abortions,” “no same-sex marriage,” “no idolatry or occultism,” “no communism,” and that anyone wishing to remain in the country “must obey Biblical law,” according to the Seattle Times.

If Shea’s terms of surrender are not accepted, his paper then instructs fundamentalist believers to “kill all males,” cited by the Seattle Times.

Support for the Republican politician from local white nationalist groups is well documented, according to al Jazeera. Shea has also declared that the science explaining the causes of global warming are a conspiracy to “manipulate the public mind,” cited by Talking Points Memo.

The GOP lawmaker’s document was given to the FBI by Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich, who reportedly took one look at it and picked up the phone.

“I gave it straight to the FBI,” noted Knezovich, cited by Thinkprogress.com.

    • Agreed Johnny! I caught the global warming bit. The demands are all Kosher pet projects, most things just short of race mixing, division, and race agitation. The biblical laws counter point would be the Talmud.

  1. Isn’t this the same as threatening terrorism? Or an act of terrorism itself? If anyone from the middle east said the same thing you would hear Murkans gnashing what teeth they have over it.
    This dude is a dangerous nut case. He is a domestic terrorist and a threat to the community. He needs to be censored from congress, dismissed, recalled and brought up on charges of domestic terrorism and his followers all arrested and charged as accessories.
    Time to raid the compound.

    • I think in my personal opinion, he don’t crossed the thin line between free speach and criminal acts…yet

  2. Johnny, they may close the liquor stores on Sunday but that doesn’t stop them from driving to the next county to stock up on Jim Beam.
    I lived in the Grand Rapids, Mi. area for 17 years and never saw such hypocrisy. Some of the surrounding towns were dry but most of the people living in them drank as much, if not more than the rest of us. They just kept it hidden.

  3. We get sooo upset when one of the legislators calls for Christian warfare against Israeli Infidels, Islamic Heathens, Christian Pagans (Catholics) here in the US but who gives a flying trapeze artist’s fart when the same goy or guy with his buddies in Washington are dishing it out all over the globe sanctioned by books like the Talmud and balancing the books of Slaytheon, Boying and Cockhead Martin etc. This chap won’t see his day in court otherwise he will be carrying the can (gas?) to incinerate all the others who should be brought to book as well. The real nut-jobs are those deflecting attention from what is really going on here in the good and old US of A – Russia anybody? South American Strollers? Assad Poison Gas Attacks? And each and every royal ‘wazool’ procreating with zombies; or Yale students – when not too busy in fulsome praise of Kim Kardashian’s ever so fulsome (and then some) butt, taking time to complete a thesis on Bono’s shoe laces. Don’t get me started …

    • 🖕- As you can see (look left) I’m very emoji’nal at the moment as you can appreciate and … and in a distressful state need time to calm down. Some of the articles here on VT leave me very traumatized.

  4. I had planned on adding a somewhat equally offensive response concerning this dangerous nutjob. Suffice to say I hope the Feds take very seriously what this dangerous nut job is saying and if anything happens, arrest him and his followers immediately.
    Will there be another Waco? If that wacko continues to spread his toxic b.s., the Feds should raid his home and church.
    Otherwise some bad crap is going to come down and as hopefully it will come down on POS like Mat Shea.
    Shea is obviously mentally ill/deranged to the point of being a dangerous threat to the safety of the public. he needs to be removed from society before he or his rancid followers harms someone.
    Ain’t Chirstianity great? Fundamentalism especially, is so enlightening.
    Time to raid his compound.
