What happens when Jason Rapert stops being polite...

Posted By on Wed, Oct 15, 2014 at 5:07 PM


At a debate last night in Greenbrier, incumbent Sen. Jason Rapert called his opponent, 28-year-old Tyler Pearson, a "boy." When Pearson had the microphone, Rapert audibly said "act like a man." Pearson held his ground and took the high road. 

Bro. Rapert, in fiery form, also asked Pearson if he was wearing a hearing aid and paraphrased Proverbs 9:8, telling Pearson, "When you rebuke a scoffer, he'll hate you. When you rebuke a wise man, he'll love you. You're making a choice right in front of these people here tonight." I will leave it to the Biblical scholars and Rapertologists among you to divine who the wise man is, and who the scoffer is, in Rapert's parable. 

Rapert says he doesn't like having to defend himself "when attacked maliciously." If there's one thread that runs through Rapert's public life, it is this: you will NOT DIRESPECT HIS AUTHORITAH!
