Lookie here, our favorite “OMG” valley-girl-talking Republican candidate for Colorado’s House is posting extremely stupid things on the internet again. Here he is claiming a picture of two (unidentified) topless women in San Francisco are Hillary Clinton and her lesbian lover in college.
Wondering if Republican county vice-chair Sampson is wrong on the internet? Answer: high probability
The vice chair of Adams County Republicans typifies the level of fact-checking that often goes into GOP social media posts—none. Here’s John “massive voter fraud” Sampson posting a picture “worth a thousand words” that is 100 percent not Michelle Obama but rather Washington Post columnist Helena Andrews. This shows you the level of gullibility necessary to remain ensconced in the fact-free zone of a Republican confirmation bias bubble.
This is John Sampson. He is Vice-Chair of Adams County GOP. He says he’ll be posting Hillary Clinton quotes for his audience to ponder. So he started with this one:
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.
