Again, McMorris Fails to Speak out

Once again, Republican Cathy McMorris Rodgers in the U.S. House of Representatives from the 5th Congressional District fails to speak out.  A few days ago, Trump used a Native American name, specifically Pocahontas, to denigrate Senator Elizabeth Warren because of her very distant Native American Heritage. Most of you probably see why this is racist.  It is using someones name in vain, and choosing a historical minority person as the name.

Actually, the actual historical details of Pocahontas possibly quite gruesome.  Much of it is no Disney story. She was kidnapped and allegedly raped and poisoned by white settlers.  I sincerely  doubt that our idiot President was aware of that, but it just adds to the insult.

It is a sad day when someone has to be afraid for their life because of a threat of violence. It makes it even worse when the threat of violence comes from an elected official who (is supposed to) hold the public trust. This is what happened in November, 2011. It was Republican State Representative Matt Shea, Spokane Valley, WA, 4th Legislative District, who pulled a loaded handgun on Leroy Norris of Spokane County.  Here is a YouTube video that we produced about the incident involving Matt Shea.  Spokane is safer without him.  Read the rest of this entry
