It’s been a tough morning for Kyrsten Sinema as Arizonans woke up to brutal new stories today which have exposed Kyrsten Sinema for sympathizing with convicted terrorists and denigrating our troops (again!) by comparing them to illegal immigrants.
First – Fox News reports Kyrsten Sinema twice promoted events at Arizona State University with a lawyer who helped pass secret messages to terrorist organizations for a client who plotted to bomb the United Nations, an FBI building, two tunnels, and a bridge in New York City.
Sinema fervently defended the attorney who was convicted of providing material support to a terrorist organization, and promoted her on campus, saying she was “emphatically not guilty” and blamed the “hastily enacted PATRIOT Act” for her conviction.
Second – The Washington Free Beacon also reports that leaked emails from Kyrsten Sinema’s anti-war activist group show she compared American soldiers dying in Iraq to illegal immigrants, saying, “the deaths that people suffer in the Mexico-Arizona desert are the same as the deaths that people suffer in the Iraq desert.”
Arizona veterans were outraged at the comments and blasted her saying, “To compare the service and sacrifice of American servicemen and women to those crossing our borders illegally is about as insulting as it gets to the families still recovering from losing their son and daughter on the battlefield.”
Both stories are a must-read. Links are below.
