WND Dominionist Runs for Office on ‘Freedom’ Platform

The Worldnetdaily’s Molotov Mitchell is running for the state legislature in North Carolina and his employer is pulling out the stops to promote his candidacy on their “news” site. Hilariously, and ridiculously, Mitchell says he’s running a platform of privacy and freedom.

One of WND’s edgiest voices is challenging a liberal stronghold in North Carolina by running for state senator on a platform of personal freedom for everyone – liberal, conservative or otherwise.

“I am the GOP cruise missile, and I intend to crush the Obama clone in Raleigh,” says Molotov Mitchell, who appears in WND each week with his “For the Record” video column.

For the record, this was said by someone over 8 years old.

Mitchell told WND, however, he has no intention of relying on strictly Republican votes but intends to aggressively target Democrat voters by running on a platform that transcends party lines. His views on several issues are on his website NC2014.com.

“I intend to fight for privacy, business and personal freedom,” Mitchell declares.

This is a perfect example of “you keep using that word.” This alleged advocate of “privacy” and “freedom” endorsed the Ugandan anti-gay bill even while it still included language giving the death penalty for ‘aggravated homosexuality.’” How’s that for privacy and freedom? He also has advocated the imposition of the Mosaic law rather than Sharia law, as though there were any significant differences between the two.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    Somebody named Molotov couldn’t find a better weapons-based metaphor for himself? That’s pretty weak. “I am the GOP Molotov cocktail, and I’ll burn reason and decency to the ground!” would have been so much better.

    It’s more like the Orwellian platform.

    Or the mass murder, “Let’s kill everyone” platform.

    Under biblical law, it is estimated that 99% of the US population would be stoned to death.

    “You keep using that word” never has it been more true than when groups put words like “freedom” or “patriot” in their names.

  • raven

    …when groups put words like “freedom” or “patriot” in their names.

    Or “Family” or “American”.

    Is he running as an (R)? If so, I don’t see how his “personal freedom” appeal to democrats would survive the very first question he gets about abortion.

    Well, Vyacheslav Mikhailovich Skryabin did take the nom-de-guerre `Molotov’ long before he became Premier and later on Foreign Minister of the USSR in the first half of the 20th century. `Molotov’ is derived from `molotok’, which means `hammer’.

    This one is perhaps dumber than a box of…

    “Freedom to not just do some of the things I approve of in advance, but ALL of the things I approve of in advance! I’m for freedom*!”

    Mr. Mitchell advocates that the equal protection of GBLT be put to a vote; the hell with individual rights along with the Constitution and its 14th Amendment. Just another hypocrite.

    His campaign website on this topic in full:

    People must be free to live however they see fit, and they have a constitutional right to do so. At the same time, people also have the freedoms of speech and religion, which can create conflict over issues like gay marriage. Censorship and bullying (from either side) will only exacerbate the problem. Molotov firmly believes in a democratic solution. While Washington often weighs in on these sensitive matters, it is ultimately the job of North Carolinians to vote and settle them at the state level.

    I’m not sure how “tyranny of the majority” or “mob rule” counts as “democratic”.

    But apparently it does to Molotov.

    Also, I’m not sure how there is a conflict between living how one sees fit and freedom of religion – unless the freedom of religion under discussion is the “freedom” to impinge upon other people’s freedom to live as they see fit.

    Freedom of religion means their religion is free to tell you what to do.

  • busterggi

    Ain’t no one more free than a dead man.

    Mass graves do lack privacy though.

    Mass graves do lack privacy though.

    The grave’s a fine and proper place

    But none do there, I think, embrace.

    Mazel tov Molotov.

    Freedom is a word in the dictionary somewhere between frabjous and frustrating.

    Do you think that after the interview he thought, “Patriot Missile! I should have said Patriot Missile! That would have been way better.”

    Orwell’s 1984 is no more bleak than the Bible, especially as read by Fundamentalists.
