Pictures speak a thousand words. One that recently made the rounds online makes it clear that Kyrsten Sinema was leading anti-war protests in a pink tutu while American soldiers were putting their lives on the line battling terrorists in Afghanistan.
Now Sinema is running for the U.S. Senate to represent the great State of Arizona — home to seven military bases, over seven dozen A-10 fighter jets, and 600,000 veterans.
Think this was an isolated incident in her past? Think again. A recent investigation uncovered that Kyrsten Sinema was the leader of an extremist group that circulated anti-American propaganda accusing our nation of inflicting “terror” in the Middle East.
“American soldiers are terrorists” — that’s the motto Sinema adopted while Americans were protecting our homeland. American soldiers were actually on the front lines defending her right to smear them. Now she wants to represent them in the Senate.
But while Kyrsten Sinema wore pink to protest our military, GOP nominee McSally wore camouflage to protect our freedoms — and put her life on the line to do so.
When America needed heroes, McSally answered the call, dedicating more than two decades of her life to protecting our nation.
Before representing Arizona’s 2nd district in Congress, McSally served in the U.S. Air Force, becoming one of the highest ranking female pilots after earning the rank of colonel and the first female pilot to fly in combat.
Unlike her political opponent, McSally fought real terrorists, clocking in over 100 combat hours during two tours in the Middle East and playing key roles in crucial Air Force operations. Her experience as an American warrior means that she understands how important the military is to her state.
In the Senate, McSally will put her combat experience to good use fighting do-nothing establishment politicians like Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senator Elizabeth Warren — like when she fought for and secured the largest military pay raise in nearly ten years and when she took on Democrats to keep Arizona’s defense industry alive.
She also won big for Arizonans in the 2019 budget, securing nearly $114 billion to rebuild our military bases, $9.4 billion to support the 6,000 Arizonans working on F-35 aircrafts, and new funds for Air-to-Air Missiles built in Tucson.
Sinema, on the other hand, would parade her radical activism through the halls of the Senate and likely vote to shrink our national defense budget and put our military men and women at risk. That’s not what Arizona needs from its senator.
Unlike liberals in Washington, President Trump believes in peace through strength — not war through weakness. That’s why as the Commander-in-Chief, he needs a senator like Martha McSally to keep America safe from threats, both foreign and domestic, and maintain a firm commitment to our military and our veterans.
Pictures do speak a thousand words — and the images of Kyrsten Sinema’s radical anti-war past tell Arizona’s voters everything they need to know about her.
This Election Day, the people of Arizona should choose the patriot over the protester.
