Skip to comments.As a Democrat, I Know When I See A Radical Liberal Activist

We are told that Xochitl Torres Small is a traditional New Mexico Democrat like myself — one who loves hunting on our beautiful public lands.
This wouldn’t be the first time that a campaign ad has tried to mislead us about a politician, of course, but it’s still insulting.
Small is a lifelong liberal activist who has raised millions of dollars from out of state interests to brand herself as a moderate and win the race for New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District in November, but her political record is simply too blue to hide behind a quick coat of purple paint.
If you want to get a sense of where the Democrat candidate truly stands on issues, just take a look at her employment history and her stated policy positions.
Over the course of her career, Small worked for Planned Parenthood and was a field representative for Democrat Tom Udall, an extreme liberal during his time in office. Not surprisingly, Small’s biography on her website doesn't mention anything about her stint with Planned Parenthood.
While Small’s carefully-edited policy platform does a decent job of painting her as a moderate, she can’t completely hide the radical positions she has always supported.
In reality, Small supports amnesty for illegal immigrants, promises to “fight for a path to citizenship” for those who are in our country illegally, andpledges to “oppose the construction of a border wall” with Mexico.
Then there’s the issue of gun control. Publicly, Small claims that she doesn‘t want to abolish the 2nd Amendment, proclaiming that hunting is “part of my heritage.” Yet, she frequently advocates for “common sense” gun control without specifying what that would entail, and hasn’t been endorsed by the National Rifle Association (NRA).
In contrast to Small, Republican candidate Yvette Herrell doesn’t hide her political platform from the voters, proudly supporting President Trump on key policy issues.
That’s precisely why Herrell was endorsed by dozens of conservative groups and policy organizations including the National Border Patrol Council, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Federation of Independent Businesses, National Right to Life, Gun Owners of America, and the NRA.
“Yvette Herrell is the only candidate in this race who will defend our Second Amendment rights,” said Chris W. Cox, the chairman of the NRA Political Victory Fund. “The NRA encourages all freedom-loving New Mexicans in the 2nd Congressional District to vote Yvette Herrell for Congress in November.”
Real defenders of the Second Amendment know exactly who will protect your rights in Washington and who won’t, which is why a deceiving photoshoot with hunting rifles hasn’t convinced them to support Xochitl Torres Small on Election Day.
Radical Democrats are hoping to sneak one of their own past voters in Southern New Mexico, but we can’t let ourselves fall for slick hunting ads funded by out-of-state liberal extremists.
Xochitl Torres Small a moderate? It was worth a shot, but that one landed well wide of the mark.
Another Dem running as a moderate.
No such animal.
Sell Miller was the last decent Democrat.
In previous generations, especially the WWII generation, aka the greatest generation, Democrats like Zell Miller were the norm.
The Democrat rank and file were filled with WWII and Korean War Vets who were rock solid patriotic Democrats.
The Democrat Party since has been taken over by a hardcore leftist progressive contingent. They are a danger to America.
Liars abound among the Dem candidates this time around.
Yes there was a time when you can honestly say that democrats and their party actually loved America—it was just a matter of how you felt it should be run—more government or less government with a few other differences. But you never doubted that the average Joe democrat loved America.
heck, I’ll even go on a limb and say that even Carter loved America—he was just a disaster all around. A forewarning of whats to come.
The democrats today though, my gosh they are the bottom of the barrel.
I’m going to assume the woman with the big WIDE OPEN mouth is the candidate. What on earth is wrong with the demon-crat women that they have to open their mouths wide enough to swallow someone? Have they never considered just a pleasant smile?
“”Sell Miller was the last decent Democrat.””
Zell Miller and he died just recently. What a guy. Knew the party was full of it, bailed out of DC and didn’t mind
telling people why...”A National Party No More” is his book.
Boy - the “person” running on the demon ticket for governor of GA is something else. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that good sense prevails tomorrow!!! Prayers are needed for GA and FL races as well as the entire country!
When you see a descendant of the Aztecs’ slaves using an Aztec first name (Xochitl means “flower”) it’s a dead giveaway she is a Leftist and her parents really named her Maria. :)
Ole’ Zell went a little off the rails at the end, endorsing Nunn’s daughter for Governor in 2014. I beleive he bowed out of endorsements in 2016.
