Note, this ONE FUCKING MONTH since a bunch of Nazis were arrested in Kansas for planning to murder a bunch of Muslims.

The Kansas Republican Party is sending mailers out in legislative races around the state depicting ISIS fighters and explosions from terrorist attacks.

A mailer going to homes in Wichita’s House District 88 shows an ISIS fighter holding a machine gun with a message that reads: “Have you met the new neighbors?”

The other side of the mailer, which was paid for by the state party, touts incumbent Republican Rep. Joseph Scapa’s support for funding for training Kansas law enforcement officers to “recognize and deal with foreign and domestic threats to our state, from those who support ideologies that are in conflict with the U.S. Constitution and our Kansas values.”

Clay Barker, executive director of the Kansas Republican Party, said similar mailers are being sent out in districts around the state.

“We did polling and focus groups and the one issue that got overwhelming positive response and was associated with Republicans was safety,” Barker said. “You know, Gitmo, that article that came out back in August that ISIS had named soldiers for assassinations, police being shot and those knuckleheads in Garden City, it all kind of added up to a security issue…the whole feeling that’s there violence out there. And it’s a positive issue for Republicans.”

The FBI thwarted a terror plot earlier this month in Garden City. A group of white nationalists allegedly planned to detonate a bomb at an apartment complex that houses Somali Muslim refugees and serves as a mosque.

Fist yourself with brass knuckles, assholes.

Cool, they can chat about their mutual love of guns, theocracy, and their distaste for gays and liberalized women

I take it that Kansas' economy is still going down the shitter and the Kansas GOP is using this scare tactic to hide the fact that their party destroyed the state economically just before the election?

Someone needs to tell them that nobody, especially ISIS, gives two fucking shits about Kansas.

Right? It's always the places that have absolutely no threat freaking out. It's the same thing with immigration. The places with no immigrants are the ones yelling about there being too many.

$50/hour, but no kissing on the lips and colors must be pre-separated
Do you think they put out an ad for the person in that picture or just be-terrorized some dude in the office?

Accurate.

Also the party is campaigning to recall judges that ruled kansas schools needed to be funded equitably.
