US conservatism has taken a turn towards pure insanity and disgust. Each week we find striking examples of the extent to which the US populace has allowed a national political party and ideology fizzle into a social quagmire can only spell danger for the nation.
Over the weekend, an Assemblywoman in the Great State of Nevada: Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R) caught our attention. Fiore came to national attention last April with her support from US anarchist ("Let me tell you about the Negro") Cliven Bundy. While the linked interview with MSNBC's Chris Hayes garnered much praise from the Right, especially from rightwing social media, HateWatch aired a Youtube video that depicts Fiore as a supporter of the tax-dodging racist: Fiore shows an utter lack of social class and on-air civility.
Fiore's support for witch-doctor cancer patient medical procedures (baking soda) has no support from the FDA and the American Cancer Society, her efforts to advance the use of uncleared drugs follows similar measures in five states: “right to try” bills.
Think Progress published a piece about the Nevada lawmakers support for medical procedures that may provide zero effective relief to potential terminal patients.
“If you have cancer, which I believe is a fungus, and we can put a pic line into your body and we’re flushing, let’s say, salt water, sodium cardonate [sic], through that line, and flushing out the fungus… These are some procedures that are not FDA-approved in America that are very inexpensive, cost-effective.”She has also commented as follows.
....Nevada is already “the capital of entertainment” and this bill could help “make it the medical capital of the world as well.”
....Fiore made news last Wednesday for her assertion that “young, hot little girls on campus” need to be armed with guns to prevent themselves from being raped, saying that every citizen should “have the right to defend him or herself from sexual assault.”
-Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R).As reported by Think Progress, the Nevada Assemblywoman is reported to own a "healthcare company." As shown below she is typically republican and illustrates the extent to which (sane and insane) people can acquire over-the-top weaponry.
