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 States 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 wasnt 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 groups supporters.
I know its partially about me being a Latina and being in this position of authority, said Giron.
Colorado Peak Politics revokes Girons 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 Girons logic, its racist then that she wants to disarm these Hispanics.
Well then tell the jack@$$ to move to Red China if she doesn’t like freedom.
Latina my arse, Mexican.
Just another example of “Liberalism” being a Mental Disorder.
When all else fails play THE card!
“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.
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.
Democracy! Woman and minorities hit hardest.
Not when all else fails, calling people names is usually the first thing libs do when they have no valid argument.
She’s an idiot. Go be the aide again for Sen Micheal Bennett or Salazar.
Says a lot for the voter in Colo! You asked for it you got it bend over!

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.
