Illuminating the liberal agenda can’t be done in short form.
Trevor Loudon’s New Zeal blog, does a superb job “shining the torch for liberty,” with this exposé on the election goals of the Democrat Party apparatus titled: “The Rainbow Conspiracy Part 14: Stealth Socialist Steve Phillips Backs David Garcia, Plots Turning Arizona Permanently Blue.”
There’s a lot to digest as Loudon lays out the Brown Agenda to turn Arizona Blue.
David Garcia, a liberal Democrat who lost the Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction race in 2014, is back with a vengeance, this time running for governor and bankrolled by out-of-state leftist billionaire Tom Steyer. Their strategy is ethnic division based in the “Browning of America.”
Elected Republicrats — such as John McCain, Jeff Flake, and former office holders Jon Kyl and John Shadegg — have spent years lecturing about the common values Hispanics share with conservatives, including family values and a work ethic. We should open the border and our hearts to them, bring them on-board to expand our vision of liberty, we are told. What is actually expanded, however, are the numbers of the Democrat voter base.
Despite the hard facts, such as high out-of-wedlock birthrates and dependence on government assistance, in 2008, then-U.S. Rep. John Shadegg called Arizonans who desire actual border security and policies focused on legal immigration, “intolerant and xenophobic,” in this interview with the New York Times. He never gave such ham-fisted quotes to the local press and likely thought the hometown yokels don’t read the tony liberal eastern newspaper.
The recent election of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old Hispanic member of the Democratic Socialists of America, is instructive. Running for Congress in her first ever campaign, she shockingly trounced 10-term incumbent New York Congressman Joe Crowley by 15 percentage points last month. Crowley, the chair of the House Democratic Caucus, out-raised her by a 10 to 1 margin, and in 20 years had never faced a competitive primary. Her campaign, fueled by promises of “free” healthcare, “free” college tuition, government supplied jobs and the abolishment of I.C.E., captured the growing base of Socialist voters, exemplified by the 2016 youth vote for Bernie Sanders.
Make time to read Loudon’s fact-filled report. It’s the ammo you need in your knowledge arsenal.
This is radical leftist Democrat David Garcia:
