Lang Sias Dedicated To Backing Trump Now And Re-Electing Him In 2020

The Colorado Republican Party’s candidate for lieutenant governor apparently backs Trump not only now but also in the 2020 election.

State Rep. Lang Sias (R-Arvada), who’s Walker Stapleton’s running mate, became a “new member” of a Facebook group called “MAGA Trump Colorado” last week, according to a Facebook post obtained from a source.

MAGA Trump Colorado describes itself as “dedicated to supporting President Donald Trump and committed to his reelection in 2020.”

“Let’s work together to fulfill his vision of making, and keeping, America great,” states the group’s Facebook page.

Recent posts on the MAGA Trump Colorado website show bigotry to Muslims and hostility toward people of color generally.

For example, one post states, “WHY WOULD ANYONE BELIEVE THAT ISLAM CAN BE PART OF A MULTICULTURAL SOCIETY.”

Another post states, “AS A WHITE PERSON, I AM SICK AND TIRED OF BEING JUDGED BY THE COLOR OF MY SKIN BY PEOPLE WHO HAVE COMPLAINED FOR DECATES ABOUT BEING JUDGED BY THE COLOR OF THEIRS.”

Stapleton’s campaign did not return an email to confirm his MAGA Colorado membership and seeking to know if Sias 1) was aware of the bigotry on the MAGA Trump Colorado site and 2) would consider withdrawing his name from the site.

Another question for Sias that went unanswered: Is there anything Trump could do, or information that could be revealed, that would stop Sias from voting for Trump again, as Sias is apparently committed to doing?

The MAGA Trump Colorado site lists as its Executive Director David Huntwork, who’s a birther  and apparently a bigot and possibly a Christian nationalist, having once wrote:

“Once we start to believe that all religions have equal validity, then this is what you end up with. History tells that this nation was founded by Christians on Biblical principles. One may not like that, but the truth is the truth.”

Huntworth did not respond to an email request for comnent.

Sias’ support for Trump reflects the stance of Walker Stapleton, the GOP’s candidate for governor, who’s said he would like to campaign with Trump in Colorado.

    Can hardly wait to see the campaign materials emerging from the MAGA Trump Colorado site. 

    Anyone else see the possibilities of an abbreviation MAGAT-Colorado?

    *sigh* Another "reasonable Republican" bites the dust. Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated.

    That's unfortunate.  Sias started out as a fairly reasonable, moderate Republican…now he seems to have devolved into a racist, reactionary, Republican like most of the others.

    The things we do to advance our careers…..

      Yeah.  Too bad the majority of Colorado and the country can't stand Benedict Donald and will not be standing with the MAGAT group.

      Since Nutter is incapable of addressing the ‘elephant in the room’, I’m going to provide his disclosure that 50% of his household budget is beholden to the power-of-appointment of the sitting POTUS. 

      Judge his comments here accordingly.

    And when his staunch defenders are chased out of office, whether in '18 or '20 the ones like Sias, who just wanted to be on the side that was winning, will be left flapping in the breeze and unable to get back on the team that never gave up its sanity.
