Phoenix, AZ — On Saturday, Democrats in Arizona decided to censure Sen. Kyrsten Sinema for failing to support abolishing the filibuster. The measure passed by a unanimous vote.
NBC News reports that Arizona Democratic Party Chair Raquel Terán said, “While we take no pleasure in this announcement, the ADP Executive Board has decided to formally censure Senator Sinema as a result of her failure to do whatever it takes to ensure the health of our democracy.”
The keywords in that statement are “whatever it takes.”
We all know that the radical voting bill the Democrats were attempting to ram through Congress was not in an attempt to “ensure the health of democracy.” After all, we are a Constitutional Republic! It was a dream scenario for Democrats to attempt and pass measures to secure more ways to win elections in the future.
The measure would make cheating elections easier than it has ever been. It would abolish voter ID laws. It would not even be surprising if Democrats were able to abolish the filibuster if they took a page from New York City and others to allow anyone to vote regardless of citizenship status.
Another quote from the NBC News article was, “Activists across the state feel betrayed by her after they knocked on doors in 100-degree weather in Aug. 2018 … only to see her go against everything we thought we were electing her to do.” So they were expecting her to go to Congress to attempt to federalize elections? Was this really the Democrats’ plan in 2018?
I don’t believe the Democrats had the vision to see this back in 2018 in this exact scenario. Their only desire was to attempt and eliminate Donald Trump and his mean tweets. They had a senator in Arizona that was vulnerable and found a candidate that was moderate enough to win.
Sinema has not been a progressive as the Democrats have wanted for quite some time. In fact, most across the Republican side seem to have a lot of respect for her. Not just for her filibuster stance, but because she is willing to work beyond party lines. Even her campaign website says she is an “independent” voice.
It seems that the Democrats believed she would simply fall in line and do as King Biden wished. They believed she would go along with anything that they wanted to do, instead of doing her job. That is, to research and learn about the various aspects and vote on them based on how people in Arizona feel.
Arizona may have voted for Democrats, but the state is far from a radical state like California or New York. Arizona truly is a moderate state, especially when you recall that they had moderate Republican John McCain who represented them for so long. McCain was not a hard core Republican and frustrated many establishment Republicans just like Sinema is frustrating radical Democrats.
So while they want to take it out on Sinema for not doing “whatever it takes,” I would imagine there are a lot of people in Arizona who are thankful for her actions. Not those who wear a partisan label, but those everyday Americans who elected her into office because of her more moderate stance.
So while they claim that Sinema did not do “whatever it takes,” she actually did. She did do whatever it took to protect our nation from partisanship and a runaway train. She stood up to the radicals and Joe Biden and said that this is not communist China, Russia, or whatever nation you want to make this look like. This is America where we value freedom over all.
