Maybe the headline doesn’t strike you as news?
Despite his record of bigotry and extremism, some Colorado Republicans embraced hardline conservative Christian Roy Moore after his upset over incumbent Luther Strange in Alabama’s U.S. Senate GOP primary election this week.
This story flew around the Fever Swamps™ like a bad illness when it was first reported. It went along the lines of: Overly politically correct ESPN banned an announcer from a game simply because he shared a name with infamous traitor General Robert E. Lee. State Rep. Lori Saine (R-Firestone) bought it.
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:
State Rep. Dave Williams, a Republican from Colorado Springs, is well known for his unfriendly attitude toward undocumented immigrants.
A coalition of Colorado grassroots groups launched a website Tuesday where constituents can find rankings for their state representatives.
State Rep. Hugh McKean (R-Loveland) last week took to Facebook to defend his vote for a state program providing drivers licenses to immigrants.
State Rep. Dave Williams seeks to reign in “lawless politician community” by targeting sanctuary cities
State Rep. Dave Williams (R- Colorado Springs) and State Sen. Vicki Marble (R- Fort Collins) presented a bill Wed. at the State Capitol aimed at holding the “lawless politician community, run by the Democrats,” accountable for the actions of undocumented Americans in the sanctuary cities of Colorado.
There are plenty of reasons to oppose State Rep. Dave Williams’ (R-Colorado Springs) anti-sanctuary bill. Sanctuary cities are safer than non-sanctuary cities, undocumented immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than U.S. citizens, and the bill would place an unfunded burden on local law-enforcement, to name a few. But I want to focus on something else: hypocrisy.
