Joshua has a very disturbing report that took me by surprise:
The Republicans in State House District 6 in Denver are about to make a terrible mistake.
At their Assembly on March 1, they nominated a terror apologist, and an avowed enemy of Israel, with no credible conservative credentials as their candidate to succeed Rep. Andrew Romanoff. Her name is Rima Barakat Sinclair.
Joshua has all the details and the links to make his case. It’s not the religion, but the Leftist affiliations, the moral equivalence, the deceptive behavior, and the dissembling rhetoric that Ms. Barakat Sinclair should have to answer clearly for.
Rather than rehashing it all, I would say that if there is any truth and substance in this report, that Joshua’s conclusion is absolutely correct. The Party needs to find another candidate to rally around in District 6:
Fortunately, the nomination is not yet set in stone, and there is still a chance to petition a more appropriate candidate onto the ballot.
Such a candidate would be able to help build party strength, keep it viable in a difficult season, promote ideas and philosophies we all care about, and perhaps even help in some small way the candidates for statewide and national office.
It would be an almost sure defeat in the general election, but the cost to petition on the ballot would be well worth saving any honor the Party has.
