When I saw this post on Casper Stockham’s wall, I thought I recognized the footage. Casper is the Republican opponent of Diana Degette (D-CO). He shared the footage from the extreme anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant group Silence is Consent. It is clearly meant to convey an anti-immigration and anti-Muslim message: If we allow refugees into our country they will start burning tires and shutting down highways! Be afraid!
I definitely wouldn’t want my children interacting online with disgraced former Jefferson County School-board member Julie Williams, who apparently considers teaching kids it’s OK to be LGBTQ as worse than presidential candidate Donald Trump talking about using his power to abuse women sexually.
State Sen. Vicki Marble (R-Ft. Collins) seems a little unclear of the purpose of elections. Yes, Vicki, it is to “judge” the candidates, but considering your candidate infamously bragged about using his power to sexually assault women, I can see why you wouldn’t want people to judge him—or you for that matter.
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!”
