Arkansas State Representative Tells Pro-Choice Mother She’s a Murderer

In the span of just a couple of days, we have yet another Arkansas legislator who dismisses the legitimate concerns of his constituent with a flippant response.

On Monday, Rep. John Payton responded to a mother’s concern about her atheist daughter having to sit through a moment of silence (and the inevitable bullying of students who know she’s not praying) by tossing out a couple of Bible verses calling atheists fools.

But there’s more where he came from. Last week, a Pagan woman wrote to Rep. Nate Bell — a Republican, of course — urging him to reconsider the state’s strict new veto-overridden anti-abortion laws.

Bell responded by calling the woman a murderer, somehow throwing sarcasm into that verbal assault:

This is the same guy who once (mis-)quoted Hitler on his Facebook page, by the way. A real winner.

I don’t know if there’s something bad in Arkansas water or whether this is just the Republicans’ new strategy: Don’t just ignore your constituents; be a dick to them at every opportunity.
