Something that fascinates me is the “telephone” game played by conservative publications. The article (below) posted by Saguache County GOP Chair Richard Drake illustrates the phenomenon.
The Koch brothers’ influence pervades the Colorado GOP caucus. Leadership made this explicit last year when they hired Sean Paige—a former Americans for Prosperity flack—to run their communications operation.
Once again the pride of the Colorado GOP Derrick Wilburn is promoting lies and deception on Facebook. Here he passing along the lie that Ruth Ginsburg wants poor people to have abortions when, in actuality, she was attributing that view to others.
GOP Chair of Otero County implies that descendants of black slaves are “pussies looking for free shit”
Something sure stinks in U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton’s (R – Colorado) district. First Delta County GOP Chair Linda Sorenson was forced to resign for her Facebook post depicting President Obama as a chimpanzee. Now, Otero County Republican Chair Judy Reyher posts this racist meme with an enthusiastic “Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!”!
I run across and get sent a lot of stupid things said and posted by Republicans in Colorado. Remember Raymond Garcia? He’s the guy who threatened Hillary Clinton with beheading and punctuates nearly every Facebook utterance with “BWAHAHAHAHA!”
We don’t have former State Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt to kick around anymore, but rest assured he is still out there spreading ignorance. It’s too bad there are so many Republicans in the state legislature who are equally ignorant, such as State Sen. Tim Neville (R-Littleton) and State Sen. Laura Woods (R-Arvada).
Short of the assumption that they really want to live in a fabricated bubble of belief-affirming thought, I’ll never understand why prominent members of Colorado’s Republican party post stuff like this on social media without fact checking.
State Sen. Tim Neville has no use for free markets when it comes to his pet causes. Yes, we all feel empathetic for people who lose their jobs, but the premise that jobs in the coal industry have been lost at the hand of Obama is laughable.
