Fresh off of calling for overturning the election and basking in the glow of Thing 45's resulting praise, Arizona state GQP Senator Wendy Rogers has sounded the alarm to white supremacists by Tweeting:
“We are being replaced and invaded.”
This was in response to a news story about 730,000 migrants who have been caught at the border in Texas this fiscal year. But Roger’s rhetoric echoes the racist ‘great replacement’ myth, which holds that white people are being systematically replaced by non-white immigrants. That myth has been the motive in multiple mass murders in recent years.
But, you know, as long as they’re murdering all the right, er, non-white, people.
After some backlash, Rogers went back to Twitter to explain she merely meant:
"We Americans who love this country are being replaced by people who do not love this country."
Right, Karen; but then howsabout this Tweet:
Let’s break this down:
Indian people are from India; in America we call native peoples Native Americans,
Redneck is as offensive as “coloreds”.
Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben are racist icons.
Lee and Sherman were traitors to this country.
Wendy Rogers is a lunatic who will do anything and say anything to get noticed.
Rogers spent ten years trying to convince voters to send her to Congress, going so far as to baselessly accuse a Republican rival of having ties to a sex-trafficking ring in 2018. When that didn’t work, she moved from Tempe to a travel trailer in Flagstaff in 2020, to launch a bid for the Legislature.She spent more than a million dollars, running a slash-and-burn campaign against then-Senator Sylvia Allen—saying that one of the most conservative members of the Legislature was “not conservative enough”.
Rogers touts her membership in the Oath Keepers, the far-right militia group that figured prominently in the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol—which she blames on antifa; she believes the 2020 presidential election was rigged, and is prone to retweeting the moronic rantings of QAnon nutbag Marjorie Taylor Green.
Arizona? Really? This Bitch?
