Montana state rep says US Constitution calls for socialists to be jailed or shot

State Rep. Rodney Garcia is concerned about the rise of socialists Montana. But he says there's something people can do about them – kill and imprison them.

"So actually in the Constitution of the United States (if) they are found guilty of being a socialist member you either go to prison or are shot," Garcia told The Billings Gazette.

From the article:

Garcia said he views what he sees as an influx of socialism in Montana as a "very dangerous" situation and that socialism has destroyed countries like Venezuela.

"They're teaching that to kids. Thank God my grandkids know it's wrong because I teach them. And it's a very dangerous situation," Garcia said.

Garcia added he believes socialism is growing, citing advertising he says is done by socialists on Facebook.
