New Mexico Democrats have a BIG groping problem

Groping has become essentially synonymous with the Democrat Party in New Mexico. The Democrats’ standard bearer, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, paid out $150,000 in donors’ cash to a former staffer, James Hallinan, who accused the embattled governor of groping his penis after pouring a bottle of water over his crotch area. Gruesome stuff.

Previously, a man came forward in 2018 before the gubernatorial election accusing Lujan Grisham of groping him at a party, which led to the end of his relationship. 

The man, Eddie Dehart, said of the 2005 groping incident, “In 2005, we have a party at my girlfriend’s house. It was an artisan party to showcase some art in Santa Fe and help the artists out to sell their products…During the game, it was Michelle’s shot. And she walked around the pool table and walked by me. When she walked by me she grabbed my crotch.” He said that Lujan Grisham exclaimed to his girlfriend that “you have a man here.”

“Michelle was asked to leave the party,” he said. “I didn’t do nothing [sic] to provoke it.” Dehart said that Lujan Grisham’s conduct led to a rift with his girlfriend. “Michelle’s drunkenness and her touchy hands ended up breaking us up in the long run.”

The governor’s rhetoric toward government officials and their actions go contrary to her very position, saying in July 2021 regarding indicted Democrat Sheryl Williams Stapleton, “But I will say that public confidence in government is seriously damaged by even the appearance of impropriety, or illegal activity, which is why public officials must always hold themselves to the highest possible standard of behavior.”

In 2017, former lieutenant governor candidate, state Sen. Michael Padilla, was accused of a decade-old sexual harassment charge. At the time, Lujan Grisham demanded Padilla drop out of the race for office. Padilla was just promoted to Democrat Senate Majority Whip.

She told the Associated Press, “My position on sexual harassment is clear: it is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated by me or in my administration. Michael Padilla’s actions were wrong.” She continued, “There is no room for excuses and he should withdraw his candidacy for lieutenant governor.”

Lujan Grisham didn’t live up to her own standard, flatly claiming, “There is no room for excuses.” Her excuse for the $150,000 was that she was busy during the pandemic and didn’t have time to fight the claims.

She said at the time, “I was focused on the pandemic, and I’ll stand by that decision [to settle] every minute of every day.”

But despite the damning payoff and excuses made by the governor, Democrats are now demanding their own Democrat state Sen. Daniel Ivey-Soto be expelled from the Senate after allegations he groped a lobbyist. The legislative panel found no probable cause for the claim.

Still the Democrats and leftist organizations demand his removal.

“They want me to be expelled from the Senate on the basis of one complaint on which no probable cause was found,” Ivey-Soto said Monday. “That’s an interesting form of justice they have.”

The Democrats, led by their Senate Pro-Tem Mimi Stewart (D-Bernalillo), allegedly sent so far as to threaten to release documents about debunked claims of sexual assault if Ivey-Soto did not resign. Ivey-Soto filed a complaint with the FBI over the apparent extortion threat by Stewart. 

How interesting that Democrats are hell-bent on attackign Ivey-Soto, who recently resigned from his position as Chairman of the Senate Rules Committee, but Lujan Grisham gets a break for not only allegedly groping two men, but for paying out hundreds of thousands of dollars to settle accusations she groped her ex-staffer’s crotch. 

So far, Lujan Grisham’s GOP challenger, Mark Ronchetti, has not made a big deal about the embattled Democrat’s groping. It was, however, a topic of conversation in the primary. 

Whether it becomes an election issue, Democrats clearly have a groping problem within their ranks. While actual settlements for sexual assault claims made by Lujan Grisham are brushed under the rug, debunked claims of groping against Sen. Ivey-Soto are met with fury and even alleged illegal threats. Time will tell if, in November, New Mexicans see the sexually predatory aspects of the Democrat Party. Maybe don’t make the same mistake by giving the leftists more power.

Lame duck Speaker Egolf demands NM vote Dem in doom and gloom op-ed

In an op-ed published in The Hill Saturday, far-left lame duck New Mexico House Speaker Brian Egolf (D-Santa Fe), who is retiring after his current term, and Michigan House minority leader Donna Lasinski (D) teamed up to demand voters support pro-abortion candidates or else. 

Egolf touted New Mexico’s 2021 abortion up-to-birth law that stripped all protections for mothers, babies, and medical professionals while legalizing full-term abortion in the state. 

He wrote, “We cannot overstate the importance of this victory,” adding, “this is only possible because, in 2021, our Democratic legislative majority and Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) repealed an abortion ban that had been on the books since 1969, ensuring it would not become enforceable again if Roe fell.”

He called pro-life laws that save babies a “nightmare scenario.”

The two pro-abortion Democrats claim that “a majority of Americans want abortion to remain safe and legal,” but lie because a recent Albuquerque Journal poll shows that most New Mexicans (59 percent) believe in restrictions on abortion.

14 recent national polls continue to confirm that most Americans back abortion restrictions, with most of these polls being conducted by academic and left-leaning pollsters.

Despite this, Egolf and Lasinski claim, “But a vocal and well-funded right-wing minority has poured dark money into state legislative races for far too many years, creating gerrymandered legislative majorities to try and inoculate Republicans from public opinion. We must keep fighting back.”

The rhetoric falls flat because Democrats are the recipients of millions in dark money from the likes of George Soros, Bill and Melinda Gates, and Michael Bloomberg, funding dark money groups such as pro-abortion Planned Parenthood, EMILY’s List, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and others that attack pro-lifers. 

Another laughable claim is that “gerrymandered legislative majorities” are supposedly “inoculating” the GOP from public opinion, but rather in states like New Mexico, Egolf’s Democrat majority gerrymandered the latest legislative maps to promote extreme Democrat supermajorities in both chambers and in all three of the state’s congressional districts. Dark money groups were even caught giving $50 bribes to those who would testify in the “Citizens Redistricting Committee” to support the partisan maps. 

In the op-ed, the two Democrats conclude, “We cannot afford to sit this election out while Republicans undermine the will of the people by abolishing our fundamental freedoms state by state,” but when it comes to the “fundamental freedoms” of the babies in the womb, both are silent.

The survival of our way of life depends on energy reliability

The survival of critical infrastructure that supports modern life starts with reliable energy.  We must be the ones to call out the policies and the lies being told.

I was there at the new Department of Homeland Security when it opened its doors after 9-11 in 2003.  (Ten years later, I served Governor Susana Martinez as the Deputy Cabinet Secretary for Emergency Management and Homeland Security.) In 2003 my team was asked to consult with a lot of other smart people to develop a Critical Infrastructure Program for the 16 critical sectors in the U.S. Sandia Lab was hired to model the interdependencies of the critical sectors.  At the top of the list was and still is ENERGY.  Without it, the other 15 infrastructures that we rely on for modern life fail. There is no excuse for advanced countries like those below to experience a shortage of electricity or other types of power or severe inflation of energy costs. But failing we are. How many examples do we need to change our course?

Example 1: Remember last winter when California was forced into rolling brownouts in its quest for zero-carbon power ahead of other states? They were only at 27% of meeting their renewables goal, and the electric grid couldn’t function. You see, the grid wasn’t designed for intermittent energy flows like wind and solar.   

Example 2: On August 26th, the California Air Resources Board adopted new regulations effectively banning the sale of gas engine vehicles by 2035. 17 states have tied themselves to California’s emission standards, and New Mexico is one of them. Four days later, Gov. Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency due to excessive heat and the electric grid. The Governor is urging residents and businesses to reduce the use of electricity to avoid additional power outages by not plugging in cars and major appliances between 4 pm-9 pm! Experts say that reductions in energy supply are a direct result of California energy policy making the grid unreliable by mandating renewables. How is it that government can require everyone to have electric cars in 10 years even though we can’t even plug them in today?

Example 3: Look at the disaster that is befalling the U.K. and the rest of Europe. The U.K. is announcing that energy could be rationed for years. Why? Gas prices for the UK are more than 16 times higher than the average prices over the previous decade. Household bills for wholesale gas and power are due to increase by 80% a year from now even though the U.K. has large potential supplies of oil and gas. Countries like the U.K. and Germany are facing failure because they needlessly failed to provide for their own energy reliability and self-sufficiency. And the Biden administration is following the same path.  

Example 4: France is a little better off because its electricity has come from its own fleet of nuclear power plants.  It has generated 70 percent of its electricity from a fleet of 56 reactors, but 32 are now offline.  The French President says companies may face energy rationing this winter. The government is working on a quota trading system where businesses can buy and sell electricity to each other.  President Macron says, “The months ahead are just a step in the bigger transition that we need to make.” Boy, does that sound familiar.

Example 5: Germany’s impending disaster is one of its own makings, but with more variables. Angela Merkel announced her nation would close all its nuclear power plants after the Fukushima disaster in 2011, at the same time quadrupling down on the decarbonization of its economy. In so doing, Germany is left with relying more heavily on Russian natural gas while Putin is demanding EU nations pay for energy in rubles, thus undercutting the European economy on a whim. Germany now has the highest global electricity prices per household in the world, at ten times higher than the seasonal average for the past decade. To reduce the cost of electricity, the German government announced it will subsidize the use of more coal-fired power plants. Germany began its transition to green renewables 30 years ago, and now they are begrudgingly returning to fossil fuels — it claims temporarily. This situation of declining supply and radically higher costs is facing the US too. Could you pay a utility bill every month that is ten times more than last year?

Example 6: Meanwhile, China and India build a new fossil fuel plant every month to fuel their economy at our expense. 

The elite left yearns for a utopian future and doesn’t care about the costs faced by us-its citizens in the US and Europe. We saw it last month. Gas prices rose to $7/gallon in California, and Biden said it’s just part of the transition. The transition, though, will take 20-50 years, not 2-5.  Meanwhile, the energy independence and system reliability we enjoyed here in the US just two years ago slips away, and costs continue to rise. Failing we are.

Like clockwork, Dems make Labor Day about socialism

Monday signifies the federal Labor Day holiday, celebrating working people and the fight at the turn of the last century for humane, fair working conditions. This seemingly non-political holiday to celebrate the working man and woman, of course, had to be seized by left-wing radicals to promote socialism via modern unions and initiatives that work hard to put as much government into private industry as possible.

Democrat Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver, who previously failed to run for the U.S. Senate in 2020, claims Labor Day is meant to “celebrate our unions who ensure that every worker – regardless of what you make, what you look like, how you pray, who you love, or how you identify – has the rights, benefits, standards, and opportunity we deserve.”

She then continued to tout socialist policies, such as a guaranteed living wage, universal health care, and other government-funded programs, while erroneously claiming there is an attack on the right to vote. 

“Every one of us deserves a living wage, access to healthcare, good benefits, adequate working conditions, and easy access to the ballot box,” she wrote. 

Democrat Rep. Teresa Leger Fernandez of New Mexico’s Third Congressional District took time on Monday to tout extremist labor leader Dolores Huerta, who said that babies in the womb do not have souls. 

Huerta previously said in 2021 to promote abortions, “I know that the child has no soul until they are born. Right?” 

Leger Fernandez wrote on Labor Day, “Today, we honor working Americans — and the unions and labor movement that gave us the five day work week and moved our nation forward over the decades. As one of my personal heroes, Dolores Huerta, once said: ‘Honor the hands that harvest your crops.’” 

Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham shared a video on Labor Day with clips of her posing alongside Huerta while touting organized labor. She did not mention, however, that she has killed over 40% of small businesses in the state due to her brutal pandemic lockdown. 

She wrote to tout unions, “When unions exist, everything gets better. Thank you, New Mexico Labor.”

In a subsequent tweet, she promoted socialist policies, writing, “Without your organizing, we would never have achieved paid sick leave, accessible child care, a higher minimum wage, or many other policies that protect working people’s interests.”  

Other far-left politicians, such as Rep. Melanie Stansbury (NM-CD-01), Democrat Second Congressional District candidate Gabe Vasquez, and others, wrote similar sentiments online, trying to tie Labor Day with socialist policies.

Leftist NM columnist launches venomous attacks against Herschel Walker

In a column published on Thursday, far-left Santa Fe New Mexican columnist Milan Simonich launched attacks against Republicans, including Trump-endorsed Pennsylvania U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, and Georgia U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker, among others.

Although softly bashing all of them, Simonich launched particularly nasty comments against Walker, who just so happens to be Black.

Simonich wrote in his poisonous opinion piece, “Palin seems like a Jeopardy! champion compared to Walker.”

But Simonich’s venom against Walker was not just in his latest column. He’s been railing against the football star for weeks — in an apparent vendetta of rage for some strange reason.

In another August 23, 2022, column, Simonich launched another racially tinged attack targeting Walker, claiming GOP New Mexico gubernatorial candidate Mark Ronchetti, who is White, is “is several cuts above Walker, which isn’t hard.”

He added, “A Republican, bumbling Walker is Trump’s handpicked choice in a state the former president lost in 2020,” dubbing him “The worst candidate this year.”

“Lujan Grisham can’t afford to underestimate Ronchetti. For all his generalities, he’s no Herschel Walker,” Simonich concluded.

Why all the low blows against the Republican, who just so happens to be Black? We will let you make your own conclusions on that.

Democrat gov. denies press credentials to two conservative news outlets

By John Block and Nick Wilbur

On Wednesday, both The Conservative New Mexican and the Piñon Post were denied entry into Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s media briefing regarding her support for abortion in the State of New Mexico.

Left-wing media went head-over-heels when a far-left reporter, Shaun Griswold, for the foreign-owned “Source New Mexico” was not admitted entry into Republican gubernatorial nominee Mark Ronchetti’s private campaign rally with Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) earlier this month.

According to the campaign, “Source New Mexico was denied a credential because they are ‘a left-wing advocacy group, not a legitimate news organization.’” The online newspaper’s liberal founding, dark-money funding, and one-sided “reporting” indicate this to be true.

Regarding Griswold not being allowed into the campaign event, leftist media collectively lost it over “freedom of the press.” 

The Las Vegas Optic wrote in a melodramatic editorial, “It’s a gross overstep of authority, and one everyone should be concerned about,” adding, “We don’t know about everyone reading this, but that sure doesn’t sound like freedom of the press to us.”

The Santa Fe Reporter chimed in, claiming Griswold’s denied entry was “an obvious affront to press freedom.” 

New Mexico Foundation for Open Government (NMFOG) whined that booting Griswold was “a dangerous precedent to let any public servant decide who is and is not a ‘legitimate’ reporter.”

To test this theory of supposed “press freedom,” both the Piñon Post, a news site initially founded in 2018, and The Conservative New Mexican, founded in 2021, requested press credentials for Lujan Grisham’s Wednesday press briefing. 

The event was scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday. As of this writing, the governor’s press secretary has yet to respond to either of our requests for access.

We will see if these supposed beacons of journalistic prowess will be crowing from the top of their lungs about “open government” and “press freedom” now that two conservative-leaning outlets were denied access—to a PUBLIC event, no less.

At the presser, Lujan Grisham announced that in the 2023 Legislative Session, if re-elected, she will designate $10 million of public capital outlay money to build a new abortion facility in Doña Ana County, according to the Santa Fe New Mexican, which was granted access to the briefing.

Even more damning, every single correspondence sent from the Piñon Post requesting comment on a story or access to an official press conference has gone unanswered, both by press secretary Nora Sackett and former communications director Tripp Stelnicki. 

The shameless hypocrisy of these leftist “news” outlets like the Reporter and Optic and “open government” groups like NMFOG prove that the crowing over “press freedom” is all a political ploy meant to dredge up more controversy and take jabs at Conservative voices. 

We will patiently wait for these leftist editorial boards and “transparency” groups to denounce Lujan Grisham for her administration’s “affronts on the freedom of the press.”

Woke op-ed: NM’s ‘free’ college holding state ‘hostage’ because oil & gas funds it

In a hilarious move, the left-wing “Source New Mexico” blog ran an op-ed by a person called Jonathan Juarez-Alonzo, who the website says “is a queer, two-spirit Indigenous climate activist” who is “working on the frontlines of combating environmental racism and ecological destruction here in New Mexico.”

Alonzo claims the extreme taxpayer-funded “free” college passed last year by the Democrat-dominated Legislature doesn’t go far enough because of “climate change” and funds from oil and gas being used to fund the socialist program. Because of the supposed climate crisis, Alonzo says he is “on an indefinite leave of absence from the University of New Mexico”

Oil and gas made up 33 percent of the state’s revenue in the last fiscal year.

“[F]unding these scholarships with volatile oil revenues, students like myself feel our futures are being held hostage: Do we invest in ourselves and take advantage of free higher education? Or should we even be wasting these last fleeting years of our youth in a classroom when our elected leaders are leading us down a path toward total climate collapse,” writes Alonzo.

Throughout the rest of the piece, he claims victimhood, invoking the name of slain fentanyl addict George Floyd, saying that is why he quit college to go into “criminology and social work,” writing that he grew up “surrounded by one of the most violent police forces in the nation.”

Alonzo then calls for the total decimation of the oil, gas, and all extractive industries, writing, “We’re lacking the political willpower to dismantle and transform an industry that holds every aspect of our state in economic hostage.”

“New Mexico is handing out symbolic victories like tuition-free college that are meaningless when thousands of New Mexicans are being displaced by wildfires, and our farmers are losing their crops because the acequias are running dry,” he writes, claiming that fires and droughts are caused by the fictitious “climate change” emergency.

He claims “real solutions” entail “investments in proven renewable energy and battery technologies, and investments in industry cleanup (which our politicians should make the polluters cover),” but does not take into account that states that have implemented far-left enviro-Marxist policies like California are facing raging blackouts statewide, which have led to the deaths of people.

Solar and wind have extreme environmental impacts due to the materials mined to make these “renewable” energies a reality. Also, the ecological impact kills countless wild animals, such as solar killing around 138,600 birds annually and wind turbines responsible for about 538,000 bird deaths and 900,000 bat deaths every year.

But despite the radical Democrats passing the Green New Deal via the “Energy Transition Act” to totally annihilate the oil and gas industry, that is still not enough for Alonzo and the folks at “Source New Mexico.”

Beware: the ‘League of Women Voters’ wants to snatch your guns

While some may still see the group as a “non-partisan” organization, the League of Women Voters (LWV) is anything but. 

Recently, organizers for the group that puts on debates and other events regarding elections wrote an op-ed for the Las Cruces Sun-News, which advocated for partisan Democrat gun control measures.

LWV gave its stamp of approval to the far-left anti-gun bill recently passed by Congress, saying it “limits access to guns for those who have been convicted of domestic violence in a dating relationship, creates federal straw purchasing and trafficking criminal offenses.”

As well, the group went even further to declare support for four other extreme anti-gun measures. The group wrote in the Sun-News piece, “In addition to these two features, the League recommended the following actions in a letter to the Senate and House judiciary committees: (1) closing the gun show loophole which exempts certain sales from the requirement of a federal background check of the buyer of a weapon, (2) providing universal background checks, (3) banning assault weapons and placing limits on high-capacity ammunition magazine size, and (4) funding research and reporting on gun violence in the United States.”

In essence, the group advocates for universal background checks on all firearms sold ever, banning many styles of firearms (making millions of Americans felons if the bill is passed), and extremist “gun violence” reporting, such as in New Mexico with the recently funded “Office of Gun Violence Prevention” aimed at assaulting Americans’ right to keep and bear arms, as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.

LWV contends in the op-ed that the fact that good guys with guns help stop bad guys with guns is “dangerous” and that “people with guns make mistakes,” whether they are good or bad. It did not, however, speak on the fact that most crimes in America are committed by criminals who do not abide by gun laws — thus, anti-gun laws do not work.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, “An estimated 287,400 prisoners had possessed a

firearm during their offense. Among these, more than half (56%) had either stolen it (6%), found it at the scene of the crime (7%), or obtained it off the street or from the underground market (43%).” 

The DOJ report added, “Among prisoners who possessed a gun during their offense, 90% did not obtain it from a retail source.”

Despite the facts, the League of Women Voters is propping up the far-left group run by Miranda Viscoli, New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence, which helped ram through New Mexico’s “red flag” law that has not been effective whatsoever in stopping “gun violence.”

Since the bill’s passage in 2020, the state has seen a sharp increase in violent crime, suggesting that the far-left anti-gun laws passed in New Mexico have not done anything but exacerbate violent gun offenses.

As well as gun-snatching, LWV put its rubber stamp of approval on socialist “free” (taxpayer-funded) college programs that are costing the state at least $75 million annually.

The group wrote, “Limitations on economic and educational opportunities also need to be addressed. Greater access to community colleges and universities through the Opportunity Scholarships and the efforts by the City of Las Cruces to lift up neighborhoods may help.”

The League of Women Voters has come out as an extremely leftist partisan organization and cannot be trusted to be anything but skewing sharply to the political left.

Opinion: The time is now

Reject the one-party rule at all costs! Democrats have weaponized the DOJ, FBI, and the IRS against you and your families. The media will push a certain narrative to fit the elitists’ agenda. The media is known for feeding you disinformation and forcing you to reject what you know is true. 

America is at a pinnacle tipping point. We are headed for a socialistic regime of one-party rule where the opposition will silence, raid, and remove anyone who speaks out against the Democrats and their operatives. True Americans must now stand up and fight back against this ideal; we must reject this nation’s Joe Biden, Gavin Newsom, and Michele Lujan-Grisham. We must ensure that we elect real Americans to this office and pursue them to uphold and maintain the constitution of the state of New Mexico and the United States of America. 

The point of no return is upon us. The Democrat elites will take any measure to silence you.  They will start by watching how you move your money, just like how they watch what you say on social media, then they will silence you for your beliefs and freeze you out of your assets. 

While not everyone likes 45th President Trump, remember, if they can raid his home, who’s to say they won’t raid yours? The current leadership of the US government is no longer for law and order. They no longer wish to uphold the rule of law. Instead, it will be used as a weapon against anyone they deem harmful to their plans this November and beyond. We must elect real Americans and show the elites in Santa Fe and Washington that we will not lose our freedoms to their show of totalitarianism against our republic. 

Reject the hurt that Joe Biden and the Democrats have placed on you and your family; reject the media for echoing the establishment’s decree that we should be grateful that they brought down gas prices by 40 cents. We are not peasants of the Democrat and GOP establishment elites: we are their bosses. We, the American people, need to remember that we are not electing our oppressors but our representatives who work for us. It is high time they remember that the American people are in charge of this union. 

In November, we must send a message that we, the American people, will not become the second Roman Empire and crumble. This Republic will not fall from within. We will not bow to this type of fear-mongering and oppression. 

For far too long, the American people have allowed the establishment and elites to go unchecked, and they must be put back in their place. It is important not to remain idle. It was President Trump’s house that got raided this year next year, it may be your house. We must remove all Democrats who applaud this tyranny and who vote to raise your taxes during the worst inflation in over 40 years. 

The time is now for the American people to stand with one voice and reject totalitarianism that the Democrats and GOP establishment are trying to push on us, the American people. We are the makers of our own destiny, and we will not allow this regime to put us on our knees and force us to lick the scraps from their boots. 

The time for the Democrats to be removed from power is now. The time for the DOJ, FBI, and IRS to be cleansed of their political bias, if not abolished for their treason, is now. These unspeakable acts of terror that have been placed on American citizens are egregious, while the elites like Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, Hillary Clinton, and Michele Lujan-Grisham and all their operatives place themselves above the law must end. Now, my fellow Americans, it is time to make a stand, or our children will have nothing left to stand on.

Far-left Dem who praised conservative censorship now has egg on her face

When it comes to state Rep. Liz Thomson, hypocrisy doesn’t register on her scale, especially if it means bashing conservatives.

Over the years, Thomson has been one of the most stalwart supporters of banning and censoring conservatives on many platforms.

In 2021, Thomson applauded 45th President Donald J. Trump getting banned from Twitter and suspended from Facebook, writing, “Let’s go all the way and hope for an ‘FBI Ban’!”

She also applauded other conservatives being banned, writing, “Ban the losers forever!”

But now, as the streaming platform, Hulu has banned certain content promoted by Democrats at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Thomson is now crying about so-called censorship.

Thomson shared a Washington Post article about it, writing, “Censorship pure and simple.” 

Many chimed in to call out Thomson’s blatant hypocrisy. 

Piñon Post’s John Block wrote, “but she was happy [when] President Trump got banned from Twitter … NOW she cries “cEnSoRsHiP.’” 

Another person wrote, “So, it’s a business decision not the government censoring, so it’s not censorship (like @twitter censoring Trump) argument is no longer valid? Is it just because it’s happening to Democrats?”

“You’re the biggest hypocrite I have ever met,” wrote another Twitter user.

One person wrote, “This [clown] is constantly calling to ban trump supporter[s] but cries when he[r] echo chamber gets shut down!” 

But the Democrats’ Hulu ads ended up being accepted at the end of the day, with changes to wording that went with the streaming platform’s guidelines, as reported by the Washington Post, which Thomson shared. However, the far-left lawmaker continues to cry “censorship” despite having egg all over her face from her shameless hypocrisy.
