Heidi Ganahl Takes The Stage With “2000 Mules”

As posted to Republican gubernatorial candidate Heidi Ganahl’s Instagram a week ago, speaking to party faithful on a tour of southern points in the state:

Look closely at the image displayed on screens beside Ganahl while she talks to voters:

As you can see, the local party (It’s not clear whether this is Fremont or Pueblo County) is promoting a “private showing” of the new and already thoroughly discredited conspiracy theory flick 2000 Mules from conservative whacktivist usual suspect Dinesh D’Souza–the same movie that Secretary of State candidate Tina Peters received court permission to travel to Florida and watch with Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago earlier this month. Despite the fact that 2000 Mules lays out a completely new conspiracy theory with no relationship to Peters’ half-baked suspicions about Dominion Voting Systems, the 2020 election denier crowd including Peters has enthusiastically embraced this new supposed plot in order to keep their confirmation bias pointed forward.

Now that Heidi Ganahl and 2000 Mules are cross-promoting at Republican events, we’d say Heidi Ganahl has volunteered herself for some of those dreaded “divisive questions!” After refusing to divulge her views about the 2020 elections followed by a grudging concession that “Joe Biden is President” with no comment on whether he should be, Ganahl has insisted to the point of liability on ignoring, redirecting, and shooting the messenger when confronted about the subject. And then in private, Ganahl assures the party faithful that she cares “about everything that you care about.”

At the moment, what the base cares about is…mules.

So let’s hear from Heidi Ganahl about the mules.

    I don't think I've seen a top-of-the-ticket candidate's campaign staff allow off-topic advertising while the candidate is speaking. 

    Questions:  how did it happen?

     * known and even encouraged? Is her campaign the "we" authorized for a limited number of attendees? 

     * known and discouraged, but the local hosts insisted?

     * known, but the campaign staff didn't have something better to put up on screen?

     * unknown, showing a lack of advance work for the facility and the sponsoring organization?

     * unknown and unnoticed even as it was going on?

      I've seen it. 

      2014 – "We Will Not Conform" a Freedomworks event Glenn Beck invites you to experience a night of action against Common Core. 

      Republicans raised money at each showing. In some states got a "Stop Common Core" party on the ballot and had all Republicans co nominated to run on that line as well.

    She'll say she was clueless and the real problem is the media.

    That is what the Republican Party has devolved to today…a bunch of jackasses spreading conspiracy theories about mules.
