Arizona: The Patriot vs. the Pretender

Democrat Sinema thinks Arizonans are “crazy,” and that joining the Taliban is just “fine.”

If Democrats want to capture the Senate in November, winning the seat of retiring GOP Sen. Jeff Flake is paramount. But that race took a wild turn in recent days as past comments from Democrat Rep. Kyrsten Sinema have surfaced. Sinema has held a slight lead in most polls, but her mouth might cost her the race against Rep. Martha McSally, a retired Air Force combat pilot.

The Washington Examiner reports on emails of hers from 2002, when she was a community organizer for the Arizona Alliance for Peaceful Justice. “When AAPJ attended May Day (sponsored by the Phoenix Anarchist Coalition), we knew that their guidelines differ from ours,” Sinema said in an email to a fellow protester. “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.”

To Sinema, destroying private property is fine … for a cause.

In 2003, Sinema opined on whether people could join the Taliban to fight against American Armed Forces Patriots, “Fine. I don’t care if you want to do that, go ahead.” She co-founded a group in the early 2000s to resist “U.S. terror in Iraq and the Middle East,” and the group depicted U.S. soldiers as skeletons with machine guns.

So while McSally was fighting for her country, flying combat missions in the Gulf War, Sinema was giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

Sinema also evidently thinks Arizonans are “deplorables,” to borrow a word. She has declared Arizona to be the “meth lab of democracy,” and said, “Over the past several years, people would watch what’s going on in Arizona and be like, ‘Damn, those people are crazy,’” On another occasion, she told leftist activists in Texas, “I want to talk to you about some of the things that I think that you can do to stop your state from becoming Arizona.” It’s probably not a good idea to habitually make your state the butt of your jokes when you’re running to represent your state in the Senate.
