After being chosen to be Speaker of the Nevada House, whackjob Ira Hansen has stepped down. And most the credit goes to Republican Governor Brian Sandoval, who pressured Hansen to quit, due to his support for Pat McCarran, whose stance against the immigration of German Jews led to the immigration to Adolph Hitler's gas chambers for many of them. In addition Hansen's comments over the years, in his newspaper columns and radio show, demonstrated a certain amount of racism, misogyny, hatred towards gays, support of the Confederate States of America and it's flag, and even support for Nevada seceding from the United States.CARSON CITY, Nev. (KRNV & mynews4.com)-- Incoming Nevada House Speaker Ira Hansen, R-Sparks, announced today that he has decided to withdraw from the post. Hansen sent an email early this morning to his colleagues in the Republican caucus announcing his plans to withdraw.
Well done, Governor. You probably made some enemies this week, but you gained many more friends. The Republican Party needs more like you and fewer traitorous assholes like Ira Hansen.
