Local Kansas GOP official: ‘Offending Muslims is the duty of any civilized person. Especially with a .45.’

This isn’t “offense,” this was incitement to violence. This Repugnant, Gavin Ellzey should know that there are more than a few that would put him in his place if he even dared to reach for a gun.

Local Kansas GOP official: ‘Offending Muslims is the duty of any civilized person. Especially with a .45.’

(Kansas City Star)

Gavin Ellzey, the vice chairman of the Kansas Republican 3rd Congressional District Committee, advised on Twitter in early July that “offending Muslims is the duty of any civilized person.”

Ellzey added, “Especially with a .45.”

In an interview with The Star, the Overland Park resident acknowledged writing the tweet in response to television news reports about Christians being “crucified” overseas.

“Sometimes you overreact,” Ellzey said.

“I’ve had folks call me,” he added. “I’m not trying to offend anybody. I sure wouldn’t shoot anybody. I don’t even own a gun.”

He said he later deleted the tweet.

Mahnaz Shabbir of the Crescent Peace Society said she was shocked when she saw the tweet.

“We’ve been doing a lot of work in the community to try to help others understand who we are,” she said. “When something like this comes across my computer, my first reaction is like, are you kidding me?”

She pointed out the tweet came just months after the shootings at the Jewish Community Center.

Shabbir said that Ellzey should be removed from his minor party office and that the Kansas GOP should apologize.

Clay Barker, executive director of the Kansas Republican Party, said the state party has “no responsibility for or connection to the public statements of private citizens who perform volunteer work for the party.”

He added that the “party in no way shares Ellzey’s sentiments on Muslims.”

Barker said new party officers would be selected in about two months in the wake of Tuesday night’s primary.

Told that the words were explosive, Ellzey said, “You’re right,” and said at another point, “I’m not trying to give offense to anybody.”

    Talking to yourself again ?
    You can get in to all sorts of trouble for that and possibly obtain medication weather you want it or nor 🙂

    You didn’t answer a single of my statements, but as usual concocted your own version and rambled on.

    “The Glorious Qur’an is the Word of Allah”…you keep repeating that as if, anybody in dialogue with you has even remotely refuted, denied or even argued against that!

    P.S. I don’t own a couch, O Great One.

  • Jekyll

    I am not a Christian, you double dealer.
    Immune you to Satan ? Do tell us the cure, Oh Great Mystic One ? Are you God’s private citizen ? Who’s has power you then ? Kali Ma ? No temptations by the devil ? No greed, no jealously, no arrogance, hmm ?
    Emphasis on the last ? Are already selected to enter Heaven by virtue of your reading of the Glorious Quran ? How do you read it ?

    Man’ twerked’…men don’t.

  • El Cid

    “Argumentum ad populum”

    Applies to you. As does your couch potato limited views.

    The Glorious Qur’an is the Word of Allah. You go follow Shataan’s or write your own. Makes not the slightest difference to me.

  • El Cid

    Conversing?
    So you think abuse is conversation?

  • El Cid

    Sorry, but I have to down grade you a couple of notches.
    You are no Sherlock. Even Watson could have done better.

    Even his Nemesis Moriarty Submits to
    El Cid

  • The greenmantle

    but it is my day job.
    Watson the game is afoot!
    What is the mystery of El Cid ? Is he/she Really Hamza Marshall Smith ?
    Does he/she really inhabit a basement of his folks house in down town Tel Aviv ?*

    Sir David

    * er no

  • Tanveer ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Khan

    …. I think I put the wrong person under surveillance.

  • Tanveer ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Khan

    You clearly have something to hide… why else would you make your comment history private? o_0 I’m watching you.

  • El Cid

    And you?
    Still on the double doze?

  • 1DrM

    Off your medication again?

  • El Cid

    No. I don’t think so.
    Are you?

  • Jekyll

    Don’t you hate Satan ?

  • Jekyll

    Dude, seriously ? Do you think I am a jew homosexual defending jew homosexual ??????

  • Jekyll

    Didn’t know you understood Chewbacca ?

  • El Cid

    Argumentum ad hominem is the last resort of the mentally challenged pervert. You just lost all respect as far as I am concerned.

    Enjoy your syntax…whatever that is. Take it with a full glass of your preferred drink. It will go down better than the dry, you are used to.

  • El Cid

    Jeez indeed !
    Who you kidding…that is a standard escape route.

  • El Cid

    I may be a layman but I hate no one, nothing. Its a wasteful emotion. Not worthy of me.

  • El Cid

    Where is this going? Why should that matter to you?

    Further, you telegraph your moves. You don’t belong in any sort of ring, any kind of contest, with me.

    You want to test that old Hadith fallacy. Go ahead with it, straight. Don’t work your way to it through ten questions. You will make me yawn.
    Get it? Got it ?
    Good !

  • El Cid

    You took the test. Did not blow your top. Not bad.
    I am impressed…not that it matters, you care or not.

    I don’t think you are unbecoming…the log you carry, I can’t fathom why, certainly is.

    I am sure that among your friends you could be quite charming. Among others…measured respect, I think.

  • Jekyll

    This would do well here:
    The Modern Jihadists: Khawarij or Mujahideen?

  • Jekyll

    Your syntax is worse than mine…but seriously yazdi girls are selling out fast..hurry…or perhaps you are of the candy cane persuasion ? No matter ISIS has a place for all perversions.

  • Jekyll

    What the layman can’t understand he hates.

  • Jekyll

    Oh dear fellow..ugg read my other comments…I was being sarcastic..jeez.

  • Jekyll

    (It behooves as what has been in the comments lately. Troglodytes scuttle in, scuttle out as the sun hits them).
