Gross… Democrat Governor: Latinos Won’t Vote For Romney Cuz “His Family Came From Polygamy Commune in Mexico”

“Mitt Romney’s Family Came From Polygamy Commune in Mexico”

It looks like the tolerant left have started their religious attacks on Mitt Romney—
Montana Democrat Governor Brian Schweitzer told a reporter today that Governor Mitt Romney won’t win over Latino voters because his family “came from a polygamy commune in Mexico.”
The Daily Beast reported:

The Daily Beast contacted the office of Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer today to talk about whether his state would be in play in the 2012 presidential election. About a half hour later, the governor called back, and he had a lot to say. He didn’t think that Montana would be a swing state, but the Democrat did say that Mitt Romney could have issues nationally because his father was “born on a polygamy commune in Mexico.”

While discussing swing states, Schweitzer said Romney would have a “tall order to position Hispanics to vote for him,” and I replied that was mildly ironic since Mitt’s father was born in Mexico, giving the clan a nominal claim to being Hispanic. Schweitzer replied that it is “kinda ironic given that his family came from a polygamy commune in Mexico, but then he’d have to talk about his family coming from a polygamy commune in Mexico, given the gender discrepancy.” Women, he said, are “not great fans of polygamy, 86 percent were not great fans of polygamy. I am not alleging by any stretch that Romney is a polygamist and approves of [the] polygamy lifestyle, but his father was born into [a] polygamy commune in Mexico.”

Romney’s father, George—who served as governor of Michigan and was a member of the Nixon cabinet and also a presidential candidate—was born in Mexico in 1907 to a family of American Mormons who fled to Mexico when the United States government cracked down on the practice of polygamy. George Romney’s parents were in a monogamous marriage, but Mexico was the last bastion for the practice of plural marriage in the Church of Latter Day Saints. (The church has since expressly prohibited the practice.)

What a pig!

Remember: These are the same people who had absolutely no problem with Barack Obama hanging around a God-d*mning America pastor for 20 years.

    Look at the disgusting menagerie Obama came from.
    What’s your point, Porky?

  • Capitalist Infidel

    Obama’s father was an actual polygamist but these people are worried about Mitt’s grandfather?

  • Granny

    So? Obama’s purported father had at least four known wives. Just what does Schweitzer think the difference is?

  • Hey, Governor, you need to clean the wool out of your fly before you make public appearances criticizing your betters… he stoned or just in a hypnotic Obamabot trance? Look at that glazed expression.

    The Romney camp needs to make an ad showing Comrade Hussein’s NON-AMERICAN, BRIT SUBJECT, POLYGAMIST, MARXIST FATHER, pointing out that Hussein was born out of wedlock (a real bastard!) and, of course, talking about his 20-year relationship with the America-hating, white-hating, Jew-hating Black Liberation Theology, Nation of Islam-related “church” of “Rev.” Wright.

    But Mitt (and son Matt) called the slimy, vindictive, dictatorial, narcissistic Hussein “a nice guy”. And, besides, Mitt is a “gentleman”.

    G-d help us!!.

  • Buffalobob

    Remember Gov. Brian, obama and Mooshell didn’t attend the racist hate filled anti American church of Rev. Wright alone, they exposed their children to that vile filth.

    This surprises anyone? I predicted this a year ago. They will hammer Romney on his faith right up to election day.

    Out of all the good conservative prospects out there, this is what we get. Fluking media wins again.

    Yes, all the above is true, but this can easily backfire again for the desperate left. If generational family relationships and beliefs are what they want to talk about, they have a lot to explain with the leader of the left. Do they really want to go there?

    Just as Barack H. Obama’s dog story (mmmm mmmm mmmm) is a lot more weird than Mitt’s dog on the roof story…….Barack’s family? Barack’s affliations? Barack’s church in Chicago? I welcome some light being shone on HIS ROOTS!

    I still can’t get past the contradiction here. Hispanics will supposedly have a problem with polygamy because Romney’s grandfather fled to Mexico where he could practice it unpersecuted?
    Doesn’t sound like Hispanics have a problem with polygamy to me.

    Only the democrats try to put people in groups by race, gender, age, etc and declare that they all think and vote the same way.

    This year everybody is voting their wallet. Nobody cares that Romney is a Mormon. It certainly can’t be any worse than whatever Obama is.
    And attacking Romney on his religion will only make him a sympathetic figure to the squishy “middle”. SO keep it up, please.

    So Frank Marshall Davis had 4 wives?
    Oh, you were referring to Barack Obama senior. Got it…

    Actually, Obama’s problem appears to be one mother and four fathers.

  • Dobby

    No matter what they say about Mitt, we can always come back and say… “Obama is a dog eater”. And then just laugh at them.

  • tjinmontana

    Being from Montana I am appalled by the Schweitzers comments.
    This bug eyed bozo is a disgrace. Must be looking for a position in the future with his fellow travelers.

  • Billy Bob

    Hey Montanans! A Dem governor and 2 Dem Senators? I thought cowboys were for freedom and such not. What gives here? Ranchers need those Government handouts?

  • Vader

    “the Church of Latter Day Saints.”

    Romney doesn’t belong to “The Church of Latter Day Saints.” He belongs to “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”

    I wonder why they chose to leave that out.

    Montana is a great place to live except for the moonbats that moved here from WA, OR and CA. Brian is being termed out this year. He’s thinking about running for senate if Baucus decides to retire.

    Come on Montana…You guy’s can do better than this…The man is incoherent…I could be wrong, but I don’t believe that Mitt Romney has Ever had more than one Wife…He has Never been married to another man, his pet dog…The governor has a choice…He can Vote for the Sitting Socialist in the Oval Office…Or Not…

  • Ridge

    Schweitzer may be a “Dead Man Walking” in the next election as they say. He basically backstabbed his gun owning constituents over the Montana right to carry bill last year. That isn’t sitting well with us Montanans. He will most likely be in the closest race of his life next election. And Jon Tester is the same way in this election. He has supported Obama 97% of the time on votes in the senate. They both have forgotten who the people of this state are. Retirement will do both of them good.

    Mit was born in the now Communist of the former USA, therefore, he is qualified to replace the non citizen born former USA. It is Kenya is not a state of the USA, so, end of question.
