If A Republican Does Not Renounce And Condemn ‘White Replacement Theory,’ They Are Complicit In The Political Violence It Incites

Above Image: h/t The Daily Beast. Wajahat Ali, a columnist for The Daily Beast, writes Republicans Must Answer for ‘Great Replacement Theory’ Violence: Republicans and the conservative media ecosystem have to answer for the blood on their hands. Either through innuendo or direct statements, they continue to promote the white supremacist “great replacement theory” which has yet again radicalized a terrorist to commit violence against people of color. And they should be held accountable for their role in it.

The Arizona Republic Calls On The Do-Nothing Arizona Senate To Investigate And Expel Sen. Wendy Rogers

Last week, the Arizona Senate approved the Senate Ethics Committee investigating Sen. Wendy Rogers (R-Flagstaff), a white Christian Natonalist and QAnon cult member who has a disturbing history of outlandish and racist comments on social media, for her most recent posting. The Senate Ethics Committee is where investigations go to die. The whole point of this is to bury taking any disciplinary action against Sen. Wendy Rogers. GOP legislators rejected an attempt by Senate Democrats to immediately expel

Tucson Mayor Regina Romero Denounces Louisiana Judges Decision to Keep Title 42

On March 20, 2022, Louisiana District Judge Robert Summerhays, a Donald Trump appointee, applied an injunction on the lifting of Title 42, a rule both the Trump/Pence and Biden/Harris Administrations had utilized to turn back asylum seekers during the COVID 19 Pandemic. While the Biden/Harris Administration has filed an appeal to overrule Judge Summerhays decision, the injunction is likely to stay in place until a lawsuit cosigned by 24 states (Arizona included) is tried in court.

Engel and Hernandez Exchange Views on the Issues in CD Six Debate

Arizona Reaction to the Biden/Harris Efforts to Make Sure Families have Access to Baby Formula

The Biden/Harris Administration, Congress, and the federal government have taken several steps to ensure that families with babies do not have to worry for an extended period whether or not they can purchase formula for their children. First, the Food and Drug Administration announced a streamlining of the bureaucratic process to allow international manufacturers to ship baby formula.
