A few years ago I ran across what had become an inside joke among liberal political bloggers. Basically, if you are looking for an explanation for GOP actions and behaviors that don’t make sense through a political lens, you should look to Cleek’s Law:
If you haven’t seen it, the GOP and Jeff Hunt, the anti-LGBT bigot who runs the Centennial Institute these days, made a dance video to promote the 2017 Western Conservative Summit. That’s the yearly meeting where “conservatives” get together and preach to the choir about their “economic anxiety” and promote their irrational fear of the “other”.
Despite wading through the Fever Swamps™ on a daily basis, sometimes even I am caught off guard by the overt, disgusting racism openly displayed by some members of the Colorado Republican Party.
GOP congressional candidate calls me a “F.A.G.” as part of claim he’s not bigoted against transgender people
If you read my columns, then you are probably familiar with Casper Stockham. He’s the former GOP congressional candidate who regularly posts 100% fake news on his Facebook wall and calls anyone who disagrees with him a racist.
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:
Coloradans know it’s hard to get any face time with U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), who hasn’t held a single town-hall meeting this year. It’s certainly not for lack of trying, considering his constituents routinely show up at his office to try and make their voices heard, especially when it comes to incredibly important issues like health care.
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.
Being a parent is difficult regardless of age, gender or the things that can make us feel different. Many parents struggle with a lack of access to a living wage or adequate healthcare or the support they need. This can be particularly difficult for women.
