Spokane GOP leader authors 'Biblical Basis for War' manifesto calling for end to abortion, same-sex marriage and death of enemies who disagree

 

 

A Washington state GOP politician is facing fallout after he authored a chilling “Biblical Basis for War” manifesto that calls for an end to abortions and same-sex marriage.

 

Matt Shea, a four-term rep from Spokane who wants the eastern half of Washington to become a 51st state called Liberty, recently admitted in a Facebook Live video that he created the document.

 

The four-page document, leaked online by Spokane resident Tanner Rowe, includes multiple biblical citations and says vanquished enemies must “stop all abortions,” disavow Communism, prohibit same-sex marriage and “obey Biblical law.”

 

“If they do not yield – kill all males,” the document reads.

 

Spokane Public Radio reported Tuesday that several Shea campaign contributors were reassessing their support of the candidate.

 

“His beliefs do not reflect the views and values of our organization, member credit unions, or customers,” Lynn Heider, a spokeswoman for The Northwest Credit Union, told the NPR member station.

 

The credit union’s PAC made a $1,000 donation to Shea this year but reportedly wants the money back.

 

Avista Corp, meanwhile, donated $2,000 to Shea and told SPR it was reviewing the so-called manifesto and future contributions.

 

“Going forward, there are actions that any particular candidate engages in, I’m not necessarily distinguishing Rep. Shea, but there are things that clearly conflict with the values of our company.

 

We will take those into consideration in deciding whether to support a candidate in the future,” company spokesman Collins Sprague told SPR.

 

Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich told The Spokesman-Review newspaper that he forwarded the manifesto to the FBI for possible investigation.

 

“The document Mr. Shea wrote is not a Sunday school project or an academic study,” Knezovich wrote in an email to the newspaper. “It is a ‘how to’ manual consistent with the ideology and operating philosophy of the Christian Identity/Aryan Nations movement and the Redoubt movement of the 1990s.”

 

He said Shea visited right-wing activists during their armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Eastern Oregon in 2016.

 

“The goal of these groups has always been to create a white homeland consisting of Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Oregon and Washington,” Knezovich wrote. “The ideas presented in the (biblical war) document are how these groups intend to seize control, by force, should there be a governmental collapse or civil war.”

 

Shea said in his Facebook Live video that he was not promoting violence with the document and that its contents had been taken out of context.

 

He said the “counter-state” was “working overtime” to slander him though a “Maoist insurgency model” ahead of the midterms.

 

He also argued the U.S. is indisputably a “Christian nation” and said the two main counter-states threatening its survival are the “Marxists” and “Islamists.”

 

Shea blasted Rolling Stone magazine for a recent “hit piece” that explored his ties to right-wing and extremist groups.

 

The recent piece highlighted Shea’s ties to the Holocaust-denying pastor of the Lordship Church in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, as well as rogue rancher Cliven Bundy and InfoWars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

 

Shea did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily News.

 

Comments:

 

He said the “counter-state” was “working overtime” to slander him though a “Maoist insurgency model” ahead of the midterms.

 

He also argued the U.S. is indisputably a “Christian nation” and said the two main counter-states threatening its survival are the “Marxists” and “Islamists.”

 

Shea left out the globalist, ( Jews )  one world government ( UN )  and Neo-Marxist, though he did get close with the " Maoist insurgency  ".

 

No mention of migrants though he did mention  “Marxists” and “Islamists.”, it might go without saying the " caravan "  is concealing them using the children as shields or camouflage.
