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!!!!!!!!!!!!”!
tales from the fever swamp
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
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.
This time it’s her duplicitous wishes for a happy Labor day.
One interesting feature of the Fever Swamps™ is the absolute arrogance with which fallaciously premised beliefs are held. In the post below, Colorado State House candidate Raymond Garcia demonstrates the form with practiced self-assuredness.
If there ever was a sate senator out of step with her district it is Laura Woods. Even when she’s running she can’t help but let her extremist views show, yet I haven’t seen much reporting in Colorado media on her incendiary statements or radical policy preferences. That is rather surprising considering her race is pivotal to determining who controls the Colorado State Senate in the coming year. This is a person who rationalized the Planned Parenthood attack in Colorado Springs; who supports the radical personhood amendment that would outlaw birth control; who is doing her best to bring back preventable, deadly, diseases by weakening Colorado’s (already weakest in the nation) vaccination law and spreading the long-debunked falsehood that vaccination is connected to autism.
Perhaps the most dangerous belief Arvada State Sen. Laura Woods promotes is the long-debunked notion that vaccines cause autism.
