Default Senate Dem hopeful Kyrsten Sinema said 'I don't care' if people go to fight for Talib

Looks like Socialist Girl has some competition in the extremist stupidity department.

Senate Dem hopeful Kyrsten Sinema said 'I don't care' if people go to fight for Taliban against US

U.S. Democratic Senate hopeful Kyrsten Sinema said “I don’t care” if people go and fight for the Taliban in Afghanistan in a newly resurfaced radio interview and co-hosted a radio show with a conspiracy theorist who claimed the September 11, 2001 terror attacks were perpetrated by the government, Fox News can reveal.

Sinema appeared on a radio show in February 2003 hosted by Ernest Hancock, a libertarian activist who presented “The Valley of the Sun” program on a local Arizona radio station.


During the interview, Sinema told the host that she didn't object to individuals going abroad and fighting for groups hostile to the U.S.

“As an individual, if I want to go fight in the Taliban army, I go over there, and I’m fighting for the Taliban, I’m saying that’s a personal decision,” Hancock told Sinema, who was then a Green Party activist.

“Fine. I don’t care if you go and do that, go ahead,” she replied, according to the audio recording obtained by Fox News.

In the same interview, Sinema said the U.S. military went into the Middle East for “a number of reasons,” including “oil, power, control” of the region.

“There’s also, what I think is rather convenient, which is the switch and bait theory, which is, don’t pay attention to the falling economy, don’t pay attention to the tax cuts for wealthy, let’s pay attention to this horrible imminent threat,” she added.

Just two months after the interview and a month after the start of the Iraq War, she told the Arizona Republic that “we should feel compassion” for enemy combatants killed in the country.

The Sinema campaign did not respond to Fox News’ multiple requests for a comment.

Fox News can also disclose that, in 2005, she befriended a conspiracy theorist who believes 9/11 was perpetrated by the U.S. government.

Between 2005 and 2006, Sinema co-hosted a radio show together with Jeff Farias. Farias is a conspiracy theorist who signed a 2008 petition that claims the World Trade Center collapsed because of explosives planted inside the buildings by the U.S. government.

Farias frequently promoted 9/11 conspiracy theories during his radio show up until 2010 and was the co-master of a conference in 2007 that rejected the government’s explanation of the 2001 terror attacks. The conference was attended by InfoWars’ Alex Jones.

He also asked his guests on his radio shows in 2006 whether they saw the film “Loose Change 9/11” – a film that was produced in part by Jones. The premise of the movie is that the U.S. government planned the 9/11 attacks.

“It’s a really fascinating film, and a part of what their premise is, is that what we were told about what happened on 9/11 is not the truth,” Farias said of the conspiracy movie. “They go into a lot of the scientific explanations of how the buildings came down, but they also talk about how no plane remains were found either in Pennsylvania or at the Pentagon, and it’s impossible that nineteen people, you know, with box cutters were able to pull this off.”

While Sinema doesn’t appear to speak out about the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on the show, she maintained a close relationship with Farias throughout the years and attended an event co-sponsored by a conspiracy group.

In 2006, both Sinema and Farias spoke at an anti-war rally called “End The US Occupation Of Iraq,” an event sponsored by multiple groups, including 911 Truth Of Arizona.

The latter group states its mission is “to expose the official lies and cover-up surrounding the events of September 11th, 2001 in a way that inspires the people to overcome denial and understand the truth; namely, that elements within the US government and covert policy apparatus must have orchestrated or participated in the execution of the attacks for these to have happened in the way that they did.”

Sinema continued to appear on Farias’ own radio show. She was interviewed by him in 2010 and 2012, while remaining Facebook friends. Sinema also participated in a 2010 panel discussion moderated by Farias.

In 2015, Farias posted a picture from 2005 featuring Sinema and himself in a radio studio, adding in the comments that he saw her recently.

Farias did not respond to multiple Fox News’ request for an interview.

The comments and associations follow a series of recent revelations about Sinema, who has portrayed herself as a moderate Democrat throughout the Senate race against Republican Martha McSally.

Fox News previously reported that in 2003 Sinema also promoted events at Arizona State University featuring a lawyer convicted for aiding an Islamist terror organization and its leader, who was charged and sentenced to life in the 1990s for plotting to blow up the United Nations, an FBI building, two tunnels, and a bridge in New York City.

In a 2011 leaked video, Sinema said her home state produced “crazy” and advised liberal activists how to “stop your state from becoming Arizona.”

A Fox News poll taken last month showed Sinema with a two-point lead over McSally, 47 percent to 45 percent.

But, but she has been reformed into a pragmatic moderate who will vote only in the best interest of AZ even if that's not what the Democrat party wants. Yeah sure.

We have had enough of two faced Senators claiming to be Conservatives then acting like Democrats best friends in McCain and Flake. Time for someone who will vote like she says and work with the party.

Since a likes to brag about her 100 pairs of shoes, McSally talks about her 100 combat missions flown.

So? You think its perfectly acceptable that politicians a republican said it is okay if Americans join the Russian army then every leftist would be on that story like a crack whore on crack condemning Republican.

The Sinema campaign did not respond to Fox News’ multiple requests for a comment.
Is it faux outrage or stupidity.

How about this.

I don't personally care if Donald Trump committed obstruction of justice or if his campaign conspired with the Russians during the 2016 elections. I don't personally care but I do expect them to be held accountable for their actions.

If an American went to Afghanistan and joined the Taliban I don't personally care. I do expect them to be held accountable for their actions.

The invasion of Afghanistan was overwhelmingly "vigilante justice" by a Texan where he managed to attack the wrong country for 9/11. The government of Afghanistan was not involved in the attacks of 9/11, no Afghani citizens were involved in the attacks of 9/11, the attacks were not organized or planned in Afghanistan, the 9/11 attacks were organized and planned by KSM and not Osama bin Laden, and the Taliban government was attempting to negotiate the extradition of Osama bin Laden when Bush ordered the invasion of Afghanistan.

Cyrsten Sinema is about as far from being a socialist Democrat as any Democratic candidate can be. She was a political independent until 2004 when she became a Democrat for election purposes and her voting record is one of a highly independent and moderate politician where she's supported legislation from both sides of the aisle.

Sinema's opponent for the US Senate in Arizona to replace Sen Jeff Flake is Martha McSally. McSally is a Trump Republican that has abandoned all of the former values of the Republican Party. McSally wouldn't even be close to replacing Senator Flake that at least showed token resistance to Donald Trump.

Kyrsten Sinema as a Democrat is far closer to representing traditional Republican values for the people of Arizona than Martha McSally that's thrown alll decency under the bus in becoming a Trump Republican.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

Liberals believe that people have a "right of liberty" to make their own decisions and if those decisions violate the law then they should be held accountable for them.

Republicans seem to believe in "Trump mind control" where people should be puppets of the president.

Liberals believe that people have a right to make their own decisions? You can't be serious.

Worthy of note is your first paragraph, last phras.

and if those decisions violate the law then they should be held accountable for them.

SSI, Medicare, ACA, schools. All Democrat favored laws. None allow me to make my own decisions.
