The Jason Rapert open line

Posted By on Sun, Jun 4, 2017 at 5:28 PM

Here's your Sunday open line. And what better way to fuel a discussion than Sen. Jason Rapert?

It seems he went off on liberals yesterday on Facebook, caught some grief and emended the post a bit after getting a pile of critical comments. The Facebook page, Arkansans Against Rapert, was all over it, with screen shots and comment. Then Rapert got engaged on THAT page, calling out the sponsor as a "coward." Several noted that Rapert doesn't hesitate to block critical commenters from HIS social media.  Just another peaceful Sabbath in the Land of Opportunity.

A portion of the deleted Rapert post follows.

After I asked for a screenshot of the post, Rapert fired a Twitter blast at the Arkansas Blog. Alas, I was at "Godspell" at The Rep (good show, lot of quotes there about the Great Commandment, senator) and so couldn't readily engage. They included this:


Whole lotta pot stirring going on, seems like.

He did post an e-mail and phone number for those who'd like a civil discussion. That address: jason.rapert@senate.ar.gov
