GOP endorses DiSanto's meme

The statement Rep. Lynne DiSanto shared with her Facebook friends, and in so doing with millions of others, I find despicable and shocking. The fact that Republican House Leader Lee Qualm sees it as nothing and states that he is happy to have Rep. DiSanto continue to serve as a majority whip is just as shocking.

Ms. DiSanto, I want you to know that a movement advocating the splattering of people with an SUV who disagree with us is not a movement we can all support. I commend the Rapid City Journal in their calling for you to apologize.

Where are the Republican Party Leaders of our state: Gov. Daugaard, Sen. Thune, Sen. Rounds and Rep. Noem? Your silence is speaking loudly and clearly.

DiSanto should not be re-elected

Dear citizens of Pennington County, I respectfully request that you re-think your choice of Representative Lynne DiSanto. Her post on social media depicting a person being run over by a vehicle with the words “All Lives Splatter,” “Nobody cares about your protest” and “Keep your (expletive) out of the road."

Her thoughtless post indicates at best she is tone deaf to the racism rampant in our country and the tragedy resulting in the death of a peaceful protester in Charlottesville who was run over by a domestic terrorist. At worst, it indicates she is unaware of our First Amendment right to speak up and protest against social injustice.

I grew up in Rapid City and love the state of South Dakota. Do not let this craven individual speak for you. Vote her out of office.
