Raymond Garcia is the man the GOP trots out every other year to be a sacrificial lamb in the race for state House District 1. He’s a big advocate of the police, as you can see here from a Facebook post a while back:
Ran across a post by state Sen. Tim Neville (R-Littleton) on Facbook in which he laments a law in Hawaii that requires sham “pregnancy centers” to let women know that abortion is an available alternative.
U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner refuses to defend the Republican health care plan to the people in Colorado he serves. I offer this spoof of Nowhere Man with apologies to the Beatles (for nonprofit educational purposes only).
It’s no longer acceptable to attack gay people, so conservative bigots pivot to attacking transgender children
This post is about one individual, but I must preface it by saying that the former GOP legislator Shawn Mitchell is not the only one. Since support for LGBTQ causes has risen to the point where it would be foolish to admit bigotry, conservatives have pivoted to attacking the one group they still feel it is OK to ridicule: Transgender Americans (especially children).
You might remember El Paso County Republican Party Vice Chair Joshua Hosler as the guy who got beat out by now state Rep. Dave Williams in a Republican primary for state Rep. Gordon “Dr. Chaps” Klingenschmitt’s abandoned seat.
With all the crocodile tears some conservative lawmakers have been crying about “divisive rhetoric” in the wake of the tragic shooting of a Congressman and others at a baseball practice, you might get the impression they are paragons of rhetorical virtue. As someone who trudges through the FeverSwamps™ daily, I can tell you that is not true.
Chair of CO GOP laments “divisive polarization,” yet he passes on incendiary falsehoods about Democrats on Facebook
Jake Viano, chair of the Colorado GOP, has been eating up all the attention he’s gotten based on the harassment by an anarchist of Republicans in the Denver Pride parade. Viano was all over Facebook lamenting incendiary rhetoric:
Local GOP activist incorrectly says Handel is the first Georgia Congresswoman, then laments that feminists won’t be celebrating
You might remember Kelly Couey from this post about his wife traveling to Washington to take part in a photo-op with Donald Trump, or his part in a failed anti-Bennett commercial promoted by local GOP activist Laura Carno.
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that conservatives in the Colorado State Senate appear to cheer the violence against a reporter by a Republican Congressional candidate in Montana. They used to be much more careful about appearing to endorse political violence. What has changed that they would now do something so careless? Perhaps it’s the election of a president who seems to encourage violence and who constantly attacks the free press and reporters.
