OutofStaterTater: If I’m late to the party on this topic, I apologize, but I thought this was totally sweet: the keynote for the Kootenai County Lincoln Day this year is Sheriff Richard Mack, who regularly speaks to, and works with…wait for it…The John Birch Society. Ok, so that’s not totally sweet. Actually, it’s an embarassment. Yes folks, the John Birch Society - the group that accused Eisenhower of being a communist operative. The group that thought Reagan was a liberal and a sellout to the left. ?!? The group that regularly peddles paranoid conspiracy theories and thinly-veiled anti-Semitism. And Sheriff Mack apparently thinks that’s all ok. So does the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee, apparently. Yow.
Question: Are there any official John Birch Society groups meeting in the Inland Northwest?
