Wendy Rogers is at it again, spewing obscene statements that rattle most people in the sane world.
As columnists like AZ Central’s EJ Montini have reported, the Arizona Legislative District (LD) Six State Senator would like to go back to the repulsive old days of McCarthyism in ridding American political influence of the so-called Soros hold on the body politic.
Rogers apparently does not know her history. McCarthyism, like the first Red Scare at the end of World War One, and other historical events like the Salem Witchcraft Trials (which Arthur Miller used as an analogy to McCarthyism in his renowned play The Crucible,) ruined innocent lives and brought shame and historical ridicule to those who ignited and spread it.
Most of these politicians are either Soros bought or are Soros-sympathizers. It is like in Vietnam, most were either VC or helping VC. Bring back McCarthyism. We are well past the #RedScare days.

By attacking Soros, she also demonstrates that she may be an Anti-Semite.
Unfortunately, the LD Six Senator did not agree with Montini’s assessment, grounded in historical reality, of her tweet, and in the words of Coconino Democratic Party Chairperson Ann Heitland, “doubled down” by tweeting:

Heitland, whose county includes part of LD Six, commented on the latest Rogers pronouncements, stating:
Arizonans do not need that type of person shaping public policy in the Arizona State Legislature.
Vote her out in 2022 and shun her from public life like Senators and voters did to Joe McCarthy after his reign of terror in the 1950’s.
