Yesterday, Arizona Republic reported that Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) “is facing a censure vote from the Arizona Democratic Party,” whose farthest left members feel Sinema has been too acquiescent toward President Trump’s policies. Dan O’Neal, the state coordinator of Progressive Democrats of America, claims Sinema has abandoned the Democratic stances she supposedly ran on.
The censure vote against Sinema reveals the malady that plagues contemporary politics.
The backlash against Sinema provides a window into the state of leftist orthodoxy and why it’s important to acknowledge those who forge their own political paths. When criticizing Sinema, O’Neal explained that the purpose of the censure was to alter her voting patterns. “The way she is voting is really disappointing. We want Democrats to vote like Democrats and not Republicans.”
