UNBELIEVEABLE: Ousted Montana Tea Party Leader Tim Ravndall States he Thought "Hanging Fruits" Meant "Hanging Poster Signs" – Tea Party Board To Consider Reinstating Him Next Week

Now that ousted Montana Tea Party leaderTim Ravndal, who was fired over a Facebook conversation that appeared to make light of killing gay people, is back from hunting on Crazy Mountain (No, really) wants his job back. He is also spreading so much idiotic talk to defend his condoning of homophobic violence if what he says is true and he REALLY  IS that stupid he shouldn’t be allowed to run a flea circus let alone a political party.  Even one as moronic as the Tea Party.

Ravndal still claims that he was unaware that hanging “fruits” was a reference to killing gays, but NOW adds that instead he thought that “hang” meant to”display” described a political communications strategy.

“I thought he was using his derogatory adjectives of the gay and lesbian community. A display could mean many things. Are we talking about poster signs, are we talking about a book?”  Ravndal said.

And as for his response to the comment: “@Dennis, Where can I get that Wyoming printed instruction manual?” Ravndal said he thought there was “an actual printed manual about displaying the facts in this issue.”

The Montana Human Rights Network responds:

“Mr. Ravndal is insulting the intelligence of Montanans that care about human dignity and safety. The comment from Dennis Scranton was clearly about hurting gay people,” said spokeswoman Kim Abbott. “I think that people that care about the safety of all of their community members need to decide on whether they believe Mr. Ravndal when he says he doesn’t know what that meant.”

  The Big Sky Tea Party Association board is expected to vote next week on whether or not to reinstate Ravndal’s membership
Well I don;t buy his crap for a second.  And if the Montana Big Sky Tea Party reinstates him it proves the case that the Tea Party is nothing more than idiots leading other idiot
Oh and by the way.  The Montana Big Sky Tea Party Association is backing a rally next week opposing Helena’s proposed sex education program that includes teaching tolerance about gay love, an event Ravndal helped organize.
