Nathan Kosted is a relatively new voice at the partisan hack blog, Intelligent Discontent. In a recent hit-piece Nathan chose to articulate his discontent with State Rep., Adam Hertz, who didn’t vote on the attempt to blast the failed anti-discrimination legislation. Here is how Nathan expresses his intelligent discontent:
Adam Hertz is a coward who does not deserve to represent the wonderful community of Missoula. Do not forget this come election 2018. He did not even have the nerve to stand up for his values or his constituents. He just ran away. We don’t need cowards in government.
Unmentioned in this weak attack is how Hertz made a recent, non-cowardly attempt to support legislative efforts to abolish the death penalty in Montana. Like the time Adam saved Missoula from being sued by the ACLU after “progressive” Caitlin Copple tried to ban sitting on downtown sidewalks (a move that outraged her LGBTQ supporters), he used a fiscally conservative argument to support abolishing the death penalty.
Adam Hertz is someone who can reach across the aisle because he’s reasonable and he listens to people. With Democrats in the minority, Adam is someone who can be worked with, so it’s very unfortunate that the ID partisans have resorted to childish name calling.
I would have commented directly on this piece, but I am not able to post comments at ID, and Don Pogreba is a liar when he stated recently on Twitter that I am not banned. Like Trump, when I called him out, he just doubled down on his lies.
It’s sad that with so much losing of elections, partisan hacks can’t seem to figure out why they keep losing, and make the necessary adjustments. Attacking a reasonable conservative like Adam Hertz won’t do anything good for Democrats or Missoula.
Unfortunately I don’t think that reality will stop the tantrums. Sad!
