Anti-LRT Woodbury guy has epic Obama-bashing Twitter account
Steve Ellenwood, the "very active" Republican from Woodbury who organized Saturday's ill-fated anti-LRT protest, has some cogent reasons for opposing projects like the Green Line. We detailed them in this post.
His reasons for opposing just about everything else associated with the Democratic party are not quite as compelling. But thankfully for our entertainment, he's outlined them publicly on his Twitter account.

Buckle up, 'cause here we go.
Ellenwood, who joined Twitter in March 2009, didn't get off to an auspicious start:
reading all of the tweets from Sarah Palin.-- steve ellenwood (@steveellenwood) July 17, 2009
He also seems to think merely starting your car is enough to impact global climate patterns:
Everyone, run out side and start every combustion engine you have...I know we can heat up the earth to turn the snow to rain!!!-- steve ellenwood (@steveellenwood) December 9, 2012
Everyone within the below zero part of the country, start every combustion engine you have to restart global warming! I think it died :-(-- steve ellenwood (@steveellenwood) February 6, 2014
This is a right-wing classic:
Hey 100 mil Al, bring your big fat ass to MN and tell me about global warming.-- steve ellenwood (@steveellenwood) January 19, 2013
Ellenwood also wishes for weapons of mass destruction to be used upon Americans:
Question in drudgereport, if nuke exploded in dt DC what shld u do? I don't know, clap cheer rejoice !-- steve ellenwood (@steveellenwood) April 15, 2014
But at least he's been a consistent opponent of LRT:
I'm looking for ideas on how to stop the central corridor light rail. If you have any ideas please post them. Thanks!-- steve ellenwood (@steveellenwood) May 16, 2011

Will the twin cities have rolling blackouts so light rail can have the electric it requires? No new power plants planned.-- steve ellenwood (@steveellenwood) March 12, 2013
The St Paul Saints Baseball Club would like you to name their new pig...I say name it "Light_rail"!-- steve ellenwood (@steveellenwood) April 7, 2013
Met council to give 2.5 million to MTC so teens can ride free! How much of the 2.5 million will be kicked back to DFL candidates?-- steve ellenwood (@steveellenwood) April 12, 2013
On the other hand, he seems to truly believe Obama is of the same lineage as Stalin.

If you are listening to comrade obama's speech I believe brezhnev already said it!-- steve ellenwood (@steveellenwood) September 7, 2012
Romney has a 1 point plan...get rid of the commies in charge now!!!-- steve ellenwood (@steveellenwood) October 17, 2012
And Ellenwood certainly likes to Blame It On Obama:
If you want to know what Obummercare will do to America, check out the photos of the Duluth flood!-- steve ellenwood (@steveellenwood) June 30, 2012
Obama library site being sought. I have a suggestion! pic.twitter.com/uq8SlMKhvk-- steve ellenwood (@steveellenwood) February 2, 2014
He also seems to think Democratic politicians are at the root of a wide assortment of Earth's evils:
HELP! Priests being demonized for homosexual acts against children. DFL glorifying homosexual lifestyle with bullying law - wait - What?-- steve ellenwood (@steveellenwood) April 5, 2014
But hey, at least he's gay... friendly?
I just found out from a Gay friend the devil is a democrat.-- steve ellenwood (@steveellenwood) May 21, 2011
