Democrat Party Shows True Colors in Vile July 4th Sign

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

July 4th, Independence Day, the great American holiday celebrating our independence from tyranny. However, this year is much different. Americans are celebrating more fiercely than ever while suffering high prices in gasoline, groceries, and all trappings of the traditional outdoor celebration.

With fireworks, food, and patriotic music, flags and sentiment, Republican, Democrat or Independent alike should be reveling in the common bond of being a citizen of the United States. But the polarizing of political parties in the United States has reached new heights, or more descriptively “depths” of vulgar words and actions.

No matter which side you are on, wouldn’t most agree that profanity and pornography should be off-limits in public venues and places?

We know that in the past few years, we have seen protests nationwide that have included profanity, violence, murder, and happenings so extreme that the “norm” of what can be acceptable during a protest has skyrocketed.

The question of free speech arises; should profanity and pornography be allowed in the name of free speech?

Some say yes, there should be no limits.

Those who maintain a platform of morality say no, in the public eye there should be a limit to some speech and actions.

Women’s marches for women’s rights have been taking place for decades, but only recently have women themselves turned away from the protests in disgust at the vulgarity.

The women’s march in Washington D.C. in 2017 even featured hats worn by protesters that were styled after and were meant to represent the reproductive parts of women.

Although the following year, march coordinators recommended leaving the hats at home since they discriminated against “women who don’t have vaginas.”

But in Arizona this weekend, lines were once again crossed, this time with rhetoric.

In Phoenix, Pima County, Arizona, a July 4th event crossed that line.

The Democratic Party in Pima County was promoting a women’s march in Tucson during the holiday weekend, a Fox News outlet reported.

The Arizona Democratic Party itself tweeted a post about the march in a post which included profanity.

The Twitter post, which was since deleted, featured a graphic with the words “f*** the 4th,” Fox reported.

The tweet then attracted criticism from the Arizona Republican Party.

In their tweet, they called it a “disgraceful rallying cry.”

“The Democrats aren’t even trying to hide the fact they are the party of radicals anymore,” read a portion of the tweet.

The Arizona Democratic Party officials responded with other tweets, one condoning the vulgar tweet.

“We believe there can be room for both celebration and criticism. That is at the core of American freedom,” read a portion of the tweets.

Officials with the Pima County Democratic Party did not withdraw their support for the women’s march.

“Make no mistake, however. We support the event which will be on July 4 at 7 pm at Reid Park. The event was organized to help women in our community grieve for the loss of their bodily autonomy, which we consider an elemental right,” read a portion of the tweets. “Our posting of the graphic upset some people. We urge you to save your outrage for the women in this state who will die of botched abortions. Arizona is not a good place to be a woman right now.”

And apparently justifying the tweet in the name of supporting women.

But some of the officials with the Arizona Democratic Party have also criticized the post, Fox noted.

Officials cited haste and being “eager” as a problem for the offensive tweet, and also blamed one of the organizers.

Later, via a series of tweets, officials with the Pinal County Democratic Party said in their haste, they used a graphic that was provided by an event organizer, Fox wrote.

In the tweet, the officials said “we agree, [the post] was in poor taste.”

“That was a mistake, and we will do better,” read a portion of the tweets.

the Arizona Democratic Party deleted the tweet, and then continued to tweet about the march.

The Dems then tried to backtrack, posting support for the march.

Dems also tried to spin the outrage at the tweet to be in support of women.

The question arises when talking about women’s issues using profanity and vulgar actions; how many women are not showing up to any protest that is connected to such things? How many women are alienated by the use of vulgar actions and words? How many women will question supporting an event that contains that which they would not let their children see, or be near?

There is no question that there is a significant amount of women who consider themselves above such things, and would not participate in those events which seems to be a reason to have a higher level of integrity in events themselves and the promoting of the events.
