Greg Gianforte is a Republican politician who opposes abortion, Planned Parenthood, sanctuary cities, same-sex marriage, and minimum wage increases. Gianforte also has opposed efforts to settle refugees in Montana. Gianforte also approves of Donald Trump’s 2017 United States federal hiring freeze, as well as “Trumpcare” which would strip 23 Million Americans of insurance by the year 2026. As well as Trump’s Wall on the southern border and his racist and xenophobic Muslim Ban. Gianforte has donated to organizations, such as the Family Research Council, Focus on the Family, and the Montana Family Foundation, which are groups that oppose basic human rights of women and the LGBT community. The recent controversy relating to Gianforte is how he chocked and beat a journalist simply just questioning him and carrying out his job. Another example of how the Radical Right along with their followers do not believe in free speech and freedom of the press, which is stated in the Constitution and is one of the backbones of our American democracy. The Right does not like this factor of democracy, because reporting of factual evidence is rarely in their favor, and it can stop them from spreading their toxic and dangerous message. Which seeks to undermine the concept of democracy itself, along with the human rights and civil liberties that are given through it.
