Pro-choice protestors hold rally outside Sen. Kyrsten Sinema's office in Phoenix

Source: AZFamily KTVK/KPHO

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Several hundred protestors gathered outside Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s office in Phoenix on Monday night for a pro-choice rally. The crowd was chanting and holding signs outside the office near 32nd Street and Camelback Road around 7 p.m. “Hey hey! Ho ho! Sinema has got to go,” the crowd chanted.

Some were seen holding signs advocating for pro-choice and criticizing Sinema. Several signs read “bans off our bodies” and “I won’t stay quiet!” Several protestors spoke with Arizona’s Family about why the protest was held outside the senator’s office.

“We’re here to protest against Kyrsten Sinema because the people have put her in a position of power and she’s not going with the best interest of what we wanted her to do in the very first place. She made campaign promises that she never upheld because at the end of the day, there’s obviously money, politics that got involved. Essentially, we feel, she turned her back on all of us and we’re here to protest that today,” said one woman in attendance.

Monday’s protest was the latest in several rallies held by pro-choice supporters. A demonstration was held in Tempe on Sunday night, where a crowd marching down Mill Avenue and University Drive was pepper-sprayed by someone driving by. Tempe police say the pepper spray hit four people, and one had to be hospitalized.

Senator Sinema will definitely lose to an as yet un-named Democrat in the 2024 primaries.

Many people, including elected officials and election officials,

are receiving threats of violence against themselves and their families from right wing domestic terrorists, and are resigning their positions because of this.

Is the DOJ investigating these threats? If not, why not?

It is my understanding that threats of this nature are felonies. Yet there seems to be no law enforcement investigations directed at finding the perpetrators of these threats whatsoever.

What's going on? Does the DOJ need to hire more cyber crime investigators to root out these fascist criminals? Are these threats the responsibility of individual state agencies to address? If so, fascists in red state law enforcement agencies will not investigate their fascist cohorts who make these threats. So maybe the DOJ needs to investigate these state agencies to find out why they are allowing these threats to continue with impunity, if that is the province of the DOJ.

I don't understand. Anyone know why fascist domestic terrorists are freely allowed to make threats of violence against American citizens with total impunity?

The filibuster must be ended. SCOTUS must be reorganized.

Manchin and Sinema need to get on board with this.

They are actively helping the fascists destroy and take over our country.

The Department of Justice investigation into Donald Trump's conspiracy to overturn the 2020 presidential election with phony electors continues to heat up and now includes another top GOP leader.

"Arizona GOP Chair Kelli Ward and her husband Michael — who were among the false pro-Trump electors — have received grand jury subpoenas, according to a source familiar with the matter," Politico's Kyle Cheney reported.

On Wednesday, the FBI reportedly executed a search warrant on Michael McDonald, the chairman of the Nevada Republican Party.

Georgia Republican Party Chair David Shafer was served with a subpoena.

Biden Celebrates Pride Month Amid Attacks on LGBTQI+ Communities

President Joe Biden said he’s marking this year’s Pride month celebration with more than rainbows and decorations. On Wednesday, he signed an executive order aimed at combating bills opposed by LGBTQI+ communities that have been introduced in state legislatures across the country.

The administration says the new order takes steps to advance equality and address discrimination, including preventing so-called conversion therapy that seeks to change the sexual or gender identities of LGBTQI+ youth.

“Today, I'm about to sign an executive order that directs key federal agencies to protect our communities from those hateful attacks and advance equality for families," said Biden. "My order will use the full force of the federal government to prevent inhumane practices of conversion therapy. This is the first time the federal government is aiming a coordinated response against this dangerous, discredited practice.”

June is the month in the United States when LGBTQI+ communities celebrate their equality and increased visibility. Rainbows are seen as a symbol of the wide spectrum of human sexuality and gender identity.

I love President Biden.

All of our Democratic party leaders need to start speaking out, and acting, against the rapid spread of violence and fascist terrorist threats of violence against LGBT+ in the United States.

First they came for the LGBT+....and?

Before there was SRV & Double Trouble.....there was Rory Gallagher.

Legend has that when a fan asked Jimi Hendrix, "How does it feel to be the greatest guitar player in the world?"

Jimi replied, "I don't know man, go ask Rory Gallagher".
