Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), is hoping to become a member of the United States Senate. If she’s truly serious about achieving that goal, she has some explaining to do. Why? She once co-hosted a radio show with a conspiracy theorist who claimed that the September 11, 2001 terror attacks were perpetrated by the U.S. government, Fox News reported. Moreover, in February of 2003, she was interviewed by Ernest Hancock’s “The Valley of the Sun” program on a local Arizona radio station. During that interview, Hancock remarked that he thought if an individual wanted to go fight for the Taliban, that would simply be “a personal decision.” A statement with which then Green Party activist Sinema agreed. She replied: “Fine. I don’t care if you go and do that, go ahead.”
But she does care if someone fights for the rights of unborn babies. That’s intolerable. She’s for legal abortion without restrictions. She also cares if someone fights for the United States, period. That’s nationalistic. While Sinema tries hard to obscure some of her policy positions, she opposes “expanding the military,” and would almost certainly vote to cut defense spending so as to better fund entitlement spending.
How our society has changed. How Democrats have changed. Can anyone honestly imagine FDR saying, “Fine. I don’t care if people go and fight for the Japanese or the Germans, go ahead.” Or JFK stating, “I don’t care if people go and fight with Fidel Castro and the communists. Go ahead, it’s a personal decision.”
And now the Washington Examiner says it has obtained emails that prove Sinema invited a prominent coven of feminist Arizona witches, called the Pagan Cluster, to an anti-war protest and celebration of International Women’s Day in 2003. Sinema apparently exhorted the witches to wear “colorful clothing and come ready to dance, twirl, and stay in touch with your inner creativity and with the Earth.”
I wonder if Sinema would say of those preparing to vote for her Republican opponent: “Fine. I don’t care if you go and do that, go ahead.”
Double, double, toil and trouble; fire burn and caldron bubble.
She’s as likely to win as…Barney Rubble.
