Delaware

This is what White Trash looks like

On the death of the glorious Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, this was the reaction of Lauren Witnazi:

She took it down after even her own supporters told her it was stunningly racist and incredibly tone deaf and cruel. But, to quote Mike Matthews: “This is what it means to be an unapologetic Trump supporter. And it’s why he cannot fill that seat.”

Of course, she was going to react this way. Witnazi is a horrible person. I don’t care if she smiles at you on Kirkwood Highway and says some nice things for five minutes. She doesn’t just believe in the insane QAnon conspiracy theory. She is also a “Groyper.” She isn’t just a racist. She’s also endorsed making Trump king for life, and said she believes that the Earth is flat.

From the Daily Beast: “Witzke’s interest in conspiracy theories doesn’t stop with QAnon, judging by her Pinterest account. Amid ideas for clothes and interior design, Witzke has tagged images purporting to explain the structures of the Illuminati, promoting various 9/11 conspiracy theories, claiming that the Sandy Hook shooting was staged, and even one, illustrated with Israeli flags, suggesting that the Jewish Rothschild family had advance warning of 9/11. 

In her “political” section on Pinterest, Witzke also saved an image suggesting African-Americans haven’t been grateful enough for white soldiers’ deaths in the Civil War. 

“Over 620,000 white people died to free black slaves,” the image text reads, over a picture of Civil War dead. “And still to this day not even 1 thank you.” […]

Witzke has extended her flat-earth promotion to Pinterest, tagging a meme about flat earth on the site.“I’m a flat earther…I am such a flat earther. ”— Republican Senate candidate Lauren Witzke.

Witzke is open about her far-right politics. In a Ballotpedia candidate questionnaire, Witzek recommended that people read Pat Buchanan’s 2001 book Death of the West to understand her political philosophy.  

In Death of the West, Buchanan posits that the West is on the verge of a disastrous demographic shift because of immigration. He also describes feminism as a sign of “the death of the nation and the end of the West,” calls homosexuality “slavery” and a “death style,” and writes, in references to Mexican immigrants, that “different races are far more difficult to assimilate.” Buchanan also includes a citation in the book to the author of The Turner Diaries, a race-war novel that has become a foundational text for white supremacist terrorists. 

In the place of new immigration that would be blocked under her decade-long moratorium, Witzke’s campaign website proposes an elaborate scheme to promote married couples raising more children and ending no-fault divorce.

“Those who divorce will lose all benefits,” the policy platform reads. “These benefits will far surpass any potential child support received after. Single parents who marry will be grand fathered into the program for a period for 10 years, after which the benefit will only be applied for those who marry and have children together.”  […]

In a May 27, 2019 appearance on [her campaign manager] Sisco’s podcast, Witzke basically endorsed the idea of a Trump kingship. […] “You know, that would be really cool because I really think that he is a man who puts America first, and he is the first president I’ve seen in my lifetime who really puts America first and the people of America first,” Witzke said, in remarks first reported by Right Wing Watch. “I guess I could get behind Trump, lifelong term, I guess.”

Delaware politics from a liberal, progressive and Democratic perspective. Keep Delaware Blue.

  1. She needs oxygen to thrive. Don’t give it to her.

  2. John Kowalko

    Alby’s correct on that point. Take her tweet down and never give her an ounce of legitimacy by acknowledging her existence.
    Rep. Kowalko

  3. Kay Bee Ell

    More Delaware Republicans, like Anthony Delcollo, need to step up and denounce this candidate. In a year of horrible things, this may be my tipping point.

    • john berryhill

      Don’t hold your breath waiting. Brady, Ramone, Delcollo and the rest only manage to hide this when they know someone’s looking. This IS the Republican Party. This is who they are.

  4. She needs the oxygen, but no harm is asking EVERY SINGLE GOP candidate running of they endorse this shit. Even Jane Brady disappeared today.

    • Yes, I sent the screenshot to Jane Brady last night, asking if she still had the support of the Republican Party. No reply yet.

      • John Kowalko

        The closer any of Brady’s Delaware candidates get to the Trump inner circle of projectile vomiting lunacy the closer Jane gets to an orgasmic fulfilling of herself.
        Representative John Kowalko

    • To be clear, I’m not criticizing the post. But as others have noted, her reason for doing this isn’t to win, it’s to generate controversy and attention. Report what she does, but deny her the outrage.

      Liberal outrage gives these people their jollies. Deny them their fix.

  5. HyperbolicDem

    She’s doing all of this for attention, fame, and a possible job on some right-wingnut media outlet. The craziness is just getting started and the more attention she gets, the higher the volume will get. Let’s just hope her gun toting followers don’t take anything she says too seriously.

  6. You really want to see who her handlers are… look up her FEC… take a look at the name of the treasurer… and I assure you that name comes from the swamp of the crazy… wanna know what Roy Moore and Lauren have in common?

  7. I had hoped such a degenerate person would not exist.

  8. Donna M Becker

    shes traitor trash….just like all the rest of them.

    She may be trash but she appears to have the DSP FOP in the dumpster with her! A supporter pointed his gun at my 69 year old ass along with a group of mostly black women! It was reported to the DSP on the scene and they did nothing. Then they claimed the guy “fled”. That’s a demonstrable lie! The dude hung out until the event ended and casually drove away. His name is known. There was an investigation worthy of the ” Great Train Robbery” for egg throwing a couple weeks back. But for pointing a firearm at a group of black folks ON VIDEO, crickets! I have communicated with multiple electeds including a certain retired Trooper and more crickets! My conclusion is the DSP is not being controlled by the chain of command but by the Trump loving FOP! Mr. Carney, Ms. Jennings please prove me wrong!
