Honey Badger Clarifies a Few Things

The Patch this week profiled HD61B GOP Endorsed Joke Candidate Nate “Honey Badger” Atkins. The profile contains some interesting insight into the Destroyers.  But first a bit of background.

District 61, the Honey Badger District, is in the heart of the Fifth Congressional District. The Chair of SD61, Mark Johnson, is also the CD5 Deputy Chair. He’s the guy who wrote the 1700 word post we covered here about “rebooting” the Fifth CD and “starting from scratch”.

Which makes a bit more sense, when you read the wisdom of the Honey Badger.

Atkins is part of a faction trying just that, by attempting to push social conservatives out of the state Republican Party in the name of Ron Paul and libertarianism. Campaigning on issues like legalizing marijuana, defeating the marriage amendment, ending wars, and tearing up the deal that gave the Minnesota Vikings money for a new stadium comes from a libertarian stance, Atkins argued that change was necessary to keep the party alive as its base ages and dies off.

Emphasis mine.

This is how Destroyers talk publicly.  To the press even.  Imagine the conversation behind closed doors.

Destroyers are arrogant enough to think that the Republican Party should be remade in their image, and destructive enough to take things over just to run them into the ground. They try to push Builders out by creating drama and discord, and If they can’t push all the Builders out, they’ll just wait for them to die off.

I want to thank Honey Badger for the moment of clarity.  It will be helpful November 7.
