Today in Brian Nieves

UPDATE: St. Louis Activist Hub has video of Nieves' extended reaction on his Thursday radio program.

The Senator from Franklin has lost his mind on Facebook again, this time complaining at length about a constituent named Tom Smith of Washington. 

The target Brian Nieves' ire is Tom Smith of Washington, described by the Senator as "just another Liberal NEA Activist" who is also "Sub-Human and, in my humble opinion, a Very Dangerous man who must be shown for what he is." 

What did Smith do wrong?  According to Nieves, he "advertises when I'll be out of state" and "put my family members at risk" by "put[ting] information in the paper telling people future dates when I'll be out of state."  Presumably, Nieves is writing about this letter to the Washington Missourian published a full month ago that includes the following line:

We learned he was preparing to go to Cincinnati on April 28 and 29 to attend the American Legislative Exchange (an ultra right-wing think tank) and was very excited about going.

But what if I told you Nieves' mad ravings began just a few hours after a trio of new letters to the editor were published in the Missourian yesterday afternoon, one of which was from the same Tom Smith?  The three letters offer more details about the May 11 confrontation in Nieves' office first reported on May 19 by Show Me Progress' Sarah Jo, and are headlined as follows:

You can read the letters and Show Me Progress post and reach your own conclusions about what went down in Nieves' office on May 11. 

You can also read all of what Nieves wrote about Smith below the jump and reach your own conclusions about Nieves' fitness for public office. A few lowlights:

  • I wish I could explain the Evil I saw in this man (should I even call him that) when I asked him why he would do such a thing!!
     
  • What will he do next?? I'm glad he doesn't know the code to my garage door opener!!
     
  • He is a Bully and a Thug and there is only ONE Way to deal with the kind of person who takes no remorse in making women and children feel threatened!
     
  • Some believe I should dismiss my God Given obligation to protect my family! Should I passively allow Thugs to put my family members at risk? What say you??
     
  • He got exactly the treatment he deserved and all you gotta do is look at recent headlines about what crazy people are doing to elected officials and people of noteriaty and you'll know why my wife and kids were upset about his actions. I was not a gentleman and he will never be allowed in my office again. He is Sub-Human and, in my humble opinion, a Very Dangerous man who must be shown for what he is.

Full excerpts and screenshots below the jump.

--------------------------

Here are all of Nieves' comments about his constituent, for posterity.  Freedom-loving spelling, capitalization and grammar are copied directly from Facebook. 

  • I take the protection of my wife and three young children very seriously. I don't appreciate a man who advertises when I'll be out of state. Do you agree?
  • Can you believe someone would purposely announce my future out of state travel to the public?!?! When I asked him WHY he would do such a thing - He gave me an Evil Sneering Look and said he would do it again!! There are those who probably think a Senator should not be allowed to stand up for his family and just take what ever abuse others dole out but I will NOT!! God gave me a family BEFORE he gave me the Blessing of serving as a senator! The man in question, Tom Smith - an NEA activist, is just another Liberal NEA Activist who will use any tactic he sees fit to intimidate an elected official who stands up to him! He is a Bully and a Thug.
  • I will be discussing this at length with Michelle Moore on the radio tomorrow! My Dad taught me when I was still a Boy that I would someday need to defend my family and my nation and at 45 years old, I still remember those lessons and thats why it amazes me to see what some people expect me to just sit back and "take" because I'm a senator!
  • Thnx everybody! Chuck... I wish I could explain the Evil I saw in this man (should I even call him that) when I asked him why he would do such a thing!! It literally made me sick!! He explicitly spelled out to me that it was Too Bad AND if given the chance he will do it again!!
  • My Dad nor my Grand-Dads would have put up with another man being willing to advertise in the local paper when he/they were going to be out of state!! I know that not all NEA members are thugs like our very own Tom Smith of Washington, Mo. but it kind of makes you wonder why they send a 6'2" BIG BIG Guy to do their bidding! What will he do next?? I'm glad he doesn't know the code to my garage door opener!! Perhaps he would advertise that in the paper and people would still expect me to roll out the red carpet for him when he comes to lobby me in my senate office?
  • Really Folks, let's think about this for just a minute ... I think we all know I've gathered some Very Ugly Enemies over my years in politics because I am Hard Core and will NOT "Go along to get along" right? So why would anybody put information in the paper telling people future dates when I'll be out of state? I guess this Tom Smith guy is just used to being able to bully and intimidate and push people around? Perhaps since he is such a fan of public information and wants everybody to know everything about everybody .... Maybe I should make public HIS address, phone number, schedule etc etc etc....
  • Thnx for the kind words of agreement and support! Bottome line is this... He put information about my future, out of state, travel plans in the paper - my wife was justifiably bothered by such a lack of discretion on the part of Tom Smith and the Missourian news paper for doing something so stupid. I called the missourian and they promptly apologized and said it would never happen again. Tom Smith had the nerve to come to my office and sneeringly inform me he WILL do it again if given the chance!! Trust me folks... I did NOT just lay down and say - "Oh, OK Mr. Smith, feel free to make my wife and kids feel unsafe all you want" He is a Bully and a Thug and there is only ONE Way to deal with the kind of person who takes no remorse in making women and children feel threatened!
  • Some believe I should dismiss my God Given obligation to protect my family! Should I passively allow Thugs to put my family members at risk? What say you??
  • Mr. Stone ... Trust me Sir, I did NOT wait for the "Committee of They" to tell me what to do! I did what any American Man who cares about his wife and kids would have done. These FB posts are educational in the fact that people probably don't realize how much the public tends to want elected officials to just lay down and let people do inappropriate things! Many have contacted me saying I should have just "Let it go" and as an American Man, I don't believe thats the right answer.
  • Thnx for the kind words of agreement and support! Bottome line is this... For those who haven't yet heard the thumb sucking liberals cry about this issue. He (Tom Smith, NEA Thug from Washington, Mo.) put information about my future, out of state, travel plans in the paper - my wife was justifiably bothered by such a lack of discretion on the part of Tom Smith and the Missourian news paper for doing something so stupid. I called the missourian and they promptly apologized and said it would never happen again. Tom Smith had the nerve to come to my office and sneeringly inform me he WILL do it again if given the chance!! Trust me folks... I did NOT just lay down and say - "Oh, OK Mr. Smith, feel free to make my wife and kids feel unsafe all you want" He is a Bully and a Thug and there is only ONE Way to deal with the kind of person who takes no remorse in making women and children feel threatened!
  • Laura!! You are such a Goof Ball!! I know you well enuff to know yur just trying to mess with me!! You'd never let somebody get away with something like this!! You can't trick me!.
  • It's interesting that a guy twice my size and three times the size of Julie and my eldest daughter, 4 times the size of my youngest daughter and 5 times the size of my sone would do something that upsets my wife and kids and then comes to my office and tells me he doesn't care about whether or not he put them in danger AND tells me he WILL do it again if given the chance would cry about what I say to him! He got exactly the treatment he deserved and all you gotta do is look at recent headlines about what crazy people are doing to elected officials and people of noteriaty and you'll know why my wife and kids were upset about his actions. I was not a gentleman and he will never be allowed in my office again. He is Sub-Human and, in my humble opinion, a Very Dangerous man who must be shown for what he is.
