Following last weekend’s uproar of racist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, where white nationalists gathered for the “Unite the Right” protest against the removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee, President Trump first responded by condemning “many sides.” Later, after a brief change of heart, the President blamed many sides again.
I’m gonna miss Derrick Wilburn, former Vice Chair of the Colorado GOP. He is reliably one of the nuttiest and most hyper-partisan members of the party. As a tribute to his history of Fever Swamp hysterics, I offer this case study in double standards. A few days ago, Wilburn posted this on Facebook:
With rumors that Derrick Wilburn may take a run at State Chair of the Colorado GOP, I thought it might be useful to take a look at the type of things he believes. In this instance, he posted his thoughts about liberalism and parlayed them into a chance to launch a sideways attack on one of the most vulnerable groups of people in our society—transgender citizens.
Derrick Wilburn, vice chair of the Colorado Republican Party, will decide whether to run for state party chair later this month, after current GOP chair Steve House makes his decision on whether to seek re-election to the post.
Derrick Wilburn is the Vice-Chair of the Colorado Republican Party. He says a lot of nutty stuff on Facebook with a self-assurance that probably seems impressive to those prone to believing it. The trouble is, Wilburn really doesn’t seem to know much about anything, be it public policy, history, or, in this case, vaccination.
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.
