Another day, another piece of evidence of how leftist and unhinged Arizona Democratic senatorial candidate Kyrsten Sinema has been in her political career. This time, it’s an email involving a protest against President George W. Bush in 2002.
In the email, Sinema writes: “Meet at Patriot Square Park at 3 p.m. (tentative time) then march to the downtown Civic Center Plaza, where we’ll protest Bush’s well …. pretty everything the man does is worthy of protest. You can pick from the following:”
Sinema then lists 11 problems she has with Bush, followed by an open space for a twelfth the responder can add. Among the items on the list are these tidbits:
Stealing all of our civil liberties in the name of something called freedom (it’s okay, I wasn’t using those liberties anyway.)
Putting arsenic in our water.
Setting up secret tribunals to persecute innocent people for indefinite periods of time without notifying their families.
Stealing the election.
Crowning himself King of the World for Life (oh wait, he’s not taking taking over the world for another year…).
Sinema has been trying like the dickens to portray herself as a moderate, but that effort seems to have fallen flat among the numerous pieces of evidence of her radically-left perspective and disgruntled feelings about hailing from Arizona. Let’s count the ways.
In February 2003, in an exchange with a local radio host, Sinema said she didn’t have a problem with Americans who wanted to join the Taliban. The host commented, “By me, as an individual, if I want to go fight in the Taliban army, I go over there and I’m fighting for the Taliban. I’m saying that’s a personal decision …” Sinema responded, “Fine. I don’t care if you want to do that, go ahead.”
In 2003, as The Daily Wire has reported, she “smeared U.S. soldiers serving in Iraq and the Middle East in 2003 while she led a far-left activist group that passed out flyers portraying American soldiers as skeletons committing ‘U.S. terror.’”
In 2010, she stated that Arizona should serve as a warning symbol for the rest of the country, opining, “One of the reasons I think it’s so important to share the story of my Arizona with others around the country is to serve as a warning symbol for each of you to take note about your changing communities. For if you choose not to acknowledge the changing nature of your community and allow instead extremists to fill the space that is created by the natural movement of change then Arizona could also be your future.”
Sinema implied her fellow Arizonans were racist, speaking of the changing demographic of the 1990s spurred by illegal immigration: “What happened was a very typical experience that humans all over the world face: that of dealing with change. In Arizona, we did not take an institutional stand to deal with or adjust to this rapidly changing community. Instead, we quietly allowed it to happen and quietly fostered and allowed to fester latent prejudice, discrimination, and feelings of fear.”
