Democratic candidate implodes in Arizona

"When Kyrsten Sinema began her rise in Arizona politics in the early 2000s, she was a Ralph Nader supporter and local spokeswoman for the Green Party who worked to repeal the death penalty and organized antiwar protests after the Sept. 11 attacks," the New York Times reported on September 24.

The story left out a radio interview in 2003 by Ernest Hancock.

HANCOCK: "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: "I don’t care if you want to do that, go ahead."

The Daily Caller compared that to her Republican opponent, Martha McSally.

The news organization reported, "The comments put Sinema in stark contrast with McSally, a former Air Force combat pilot who ran missions against the Taliban during the war in Afghanistan."
Holy cow.

It gets better.

Philip Wegmann of the Washington Examiner reported that at age 26 in 2002, Sinema was a community organizer for the Arizona Alliance for Peaceful Justice. She emailed a colleague about the group's pairing with violent anarchists.

The email said, "When AAPJ attended May Day (sponsored by the Phoenix Anarchist Coalition), we knew that their guidelines differ from ours. They are okay with weapons and property destruction in some instances, and so those of us who chose to attend the event knew that it would be inappropriate to ask someone to not destroy property or to carry a weapon."

Hmm. She was a community organizer hanging out with violent people. Ladies and gentlemen, I believe we have found the Democratic presidential candidate for 2020.

Her work with violent protesters is not her only problem.

Wegmann wrote, "Sinema has also had trouble because of old videotape — from after she was elected to Congress — in which she gave speeches demonstrating contempt for Arizona and its residents. In one video, Sinema warned a group of liberal Texans to 'stop your state from becoming Arizona.' In another, she trashed Arizona as 'the meth lab of democracy' to get some laughs at a NetRoots Nation conference."

The videotape is on Twitter.
This was not some kid. Sinema was 35 and running for Congress.

Sinema spokeswoman Helen Hare said, "She was frustrated that no one in the state legislature was standing up to out-of-state special interests working to take away health care from children, make tuition more expensive, and take job security away from working families.

"Kyrsten was born here, and will always stand up to outside special interest groups to protect and defend Arizonans."

But her words in the past belie any support for women and children.

LANGUAGE WARNING. The following paragraph quotes a liberal and contains rough language. Readers under 18 are advised to stop reading.

Breibart News reported in 2006 (at age 30) Sinema said, "These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bullshit. I mean, what the fuck are we really talking about here?"

We shall see if Arizonans are crazy enough to elect her.

Now I must go to the store. I ran out of popcorn.

    1. Good thing you added, "or so I am told," or we wonder about you. Some question, however, still remains.

  6. Mr. Surber said:

    I believe that was the Democratic presidential candidate for 2008.

  7. Hard to have more polar opposite candidates. Should be a landslide but Arizona does not have a good track record.

  8. Sextant ... check.
    Tricorder ... check.
    Well-thumbed copy of Gray's Anatomy ... check.

    Well, Sinema's as ready as she'll ever be, trying to find her own ass.

    1. Latest I could find (Real Clear Politics) as of today (Oct 13) is a tossup (45.3 for McSally vs 45 for Sinema). Makes me wonder....

  10. No need to tell you this, Big D, but for new or occasional readers, a good lesson: Right now there is no such thing as a moderate Democrat. Sinema, Bredesen, Skipper Joe Manchin...do not be fooled. They will govern according to the wishes of their overlords if elected.

  14. It's been a few yearssince I'be driven through the western Charleston area, but I do recall a Sam's. There may be a Costco as well. I would suggest that you buy popcorn in bulk from one those establishments. If you don't, you'll run out when you desperately need more, and have none.
