A bizarre political trend is gaining momentum. It’s exemplified by the Swedish teenage climate change activist who has been the object of adulation by the left after addressing the United Nations, accusing the U.S. and industrialized nations of “stealing my dreams,” and threatening, “We will not let you get away with this…we will never forgive you.” Her latest admirer is Leonardo DiCaprio, an anti-Trump, high dollar Democrat donor who was recently described as “swooning” over her as he referred to her as “a leader of our time.” The object of his adulation preemptively stated she would refuse to meet with President Trump — who never issued an invitation.
Scientists at the Natural History Museum in London have officially named a tiny beetle after her. Fittingly, it has no eyes and lacks wings.
Arizonans have their own versions of this new breed of inexperienced aspirants who take on Republican incumbents. A former Martha McSally staffer living in Prescott is eyeing a congressional run. Though not a teen, Anne Marie Ward, who is in her 20’s, has decided to challenge Congressman Paul Gosar.
She is quoted as saying:
“We need to have younger citizens step up and run at every single level to really bring our conservative values back to life at the local, the state, the federal level,” Ward stated. “We have the Democratic Socialist party gaining momentum and the Republican Party losing momentum, and with that shift it’s time for the young generation to step forward and start using their voice to represent our communities again.”
She obviously missed the fact that it is the youth vote, known as millennials, that moved unlikely Bernie Sanders, an acknowledged socialist, within spitting distance of leading the 2016 Democrat ticket. They support radical leftist Elizabeth Warren and turned out to elect extremists Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib to congress. In response, the four women known as “the squad,‘ have irrationally called for lowing the voting age from 18 to 16.
Equally ill-prepared for the U.S. Senate seat he’s announced for, is Daniel McCarthy, 34, who is challenging incumbent U.S. Sen. Martha McSally for one of Arizona’s two senate seats — one already in the clutches of Dem Kyrsten Sinema. McCarthy’s ego-driven entry will do nothing more than aid current challenger, Mark “Mr. Gabby Giffords” Kelly, a gun-grabber, who is being funded by Socialist multi-billionaire George Soros.
Youth is great. We all wish we could keep it and our biceps, permanently ward off wrinkles and graying follicles. But the years bring with them the respectable trade-off of experience and wisdom.
At 60, retired dentist and current AZ CD-4 Congressman, Paul Gosar is just reaching his prime. He’s doing an excellent job in congress. Gosar is a known conservative who earned a Liberty Score “A“ rating from Conservative Review.
His unknown challenger, not even a decade out of her teens, tells us she holds to those same principles. Why, then, does she think we need to replace him?
