Colorado Senator Claims Democracy Is Racist

Colorado state Senator Angela Giron (D-Pueblo) says that democracy in our republic is racist. Colorado citizens, angry over her votes to further restrict their Second Amendment civil liberties, have gathered thousands of signatures to force a recall election.

The group working to recall state Sen. Angela Giron, D-Pueblo, delivered more than 13,000 signatures to the Colorado Secretary of State’s office in Denver on Monday.

Pueblo Freedom and Rights needed 11,285 signatures from registered voters in Senate District 3 to force a recall election. The group said it returned 13,570 signatures. Victor Head, a founder of the group, said the names were all collected by volunteers and were reliable.

Giron said she wasn’t surprised that the group was able to deliver boxes full of petitions. But she said she was surprised at the racial undertones taken by some of the group’s supporters.

“I know it’s partially about me being a Latina and being in this position of authority,” said Giron.

Colorado Peak Politics revokes Giron’s race card:

Carefully ignored is the fact that three other Hispanics, both Republican and Democrat, male and female, opposed a number of gun bills this session.

Republican Latina Clarice Navarro opposed all the gun bills.

Democrat Latinos Ed Vigil and Leroy Garcia opposed the Mag Ban, and Vigil also opposed the background check bill.

No recall campaigns have been initiated against any of those Hispanic politicians.

According to Giron’s logic, it’s racist then that she wants to disarm these Hispanics.

“Position of Authority”

What a phrase to be used by a representative who is to serve the interests of the public.

The people are in a position of Authority.

Yet some still want to grant amnesty for 12 - 30 million.

Past time to get tired of all this crapola, and vote accordingly. Get these b******* out of office.

Pronto.

“I know it’s partially about me being a Latina and being in this position of authority,” said Giron.

Perpetuating racism - taught by Jesse and Al. Always play the race card. It's easier than just admitting your far-left ideology doesn't mesh with common-sense.

Well, I guess it’s a good thing we’re not a democracy.

As much as progressives in this country would like for us to be one, we are a representative constitutional republic and NOT a democracy.

Democracies are little more than mob rule, which is why Liberals love them so much and want to change our our nation into one.

They’re not trying to recall her because of her race; they’re trying to recall her because of her anti-gun dipshittery.

Not when all else fails, calling people names is usually the first thing libs do when they have no valid argument.

My ancestors came to this country and assimilated into the culture. They did not come here and try to ram their personal vendetta down peoples throats.

No, it's about you being in a position of delegated authority, having been elected to represent the people of Pueblo, Colorado. If you think democracy is racist, then you must not want to represent a portion of your constituents.

Considering that she looks like (and is) a typical middle-aged white woman, that's a stretch:

“Position of Authority”

There seem to be a number of politicians on both sides of the aisle that have the “misconception” that in a representative republic they have some kind of authority. They serve at the will of the people. It appears that they all need to be reminded of that. I thought that we had given them some insight in 2010. They must need another remediation.

It IS racist. She’s trying to make poor, black rifles become illegal. She also hates magazines with different capacity gifting.

Clearly racist.

Yeah, I'm sure being a Constitutionally illiterate slut and a wannabe tyrant are completely irrelevant. It's all about the GWB (Governing While Brown).

Since the local news isn’t covering this, I went ahead and posted it on their message boards.

In several places.

I’m in Denver. They’re too busy reporting about a republican, “Scandal,” to mention Giron.
