Six years ago, One Colorado, the state’s leading advocacy organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer Coloradans and their families asked LGBTQ people across the state to complete a survey to determine what issues impacted their lives. More than 4,600 people responded to the survey and the results shaped the priorities of our organization: expanding relationship recognition, ensuring LGBTQ youth feel safe and welcome in their schools, and increasing access to health care.
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!!!!!!!!!!!!”!
“Good for Mike Coffman.” That’s the first line of an August Denver Post editorial, and, as it turns out, an excellent summation of the The Post editorial page’s singular stance toward Coffman over many years.
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!”
“And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?” -Matthew 7:3
I began my master’s at CU Boulder this year. Like most students, I was handed a small booklet of coupons in the first few weeks of the fall semester. The book featured the expected coupons for slices of pizza, tanning salons, and even a free hot wax for your skis. I then came to a coupon for a free pregnancy test and a free ultrasound.
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.
