UPDATE: LOSER JOE KENT HAS LOST. WA DISTRICT #3 HAS SAID HE'S TOO EXTREME, MISINFORMED AND DIVISIVE! GOOD RIDDANCE! WE DON'T NEED NO THUGS AND THEIR IDIOTIC CULTURE WARS!
No matter what Joe Kent may say about his support of the elderly, in truth Joe Kent and the Republicans HATE the Elderly. If they didn't hate them, then why are guys like Senators Ron Johnson, Rick Scott and other Republican leaders all proposing that Social Security and Medicare should no longer be guaranteed as mandatory for seniors? Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) is calling for Social Security and Medicare to expire every five years unless renewed by a vote in Congress. Scott, head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, is basically calling for an end to the social safety net for the over-65 crowd. By ending either of these programs it will plunge MILLIONS into poverty, homelessness, plus medical peril and debt.
Furthermore, Joe Kent fully backed Trump when he proposed a plan to foolishly defund Social Security for the sake of a self-serving scheme to give the wealthy and those who make above $100K an even bigger tax dodge.
Republicans also want Wall Street to get their greedy little hands on the billions in the Social Security fund under the false guise of "privatized fund management." No thanks. We don't need another stock crash, and a depletion of those funds, to remind us of what happens when the greed of Wall Street is given money that they can play risky games with.
All of these schemes are warnings of how much Joe Kent and the Republicans HATE the Elderly and hard-working Americans.
Let's be 100% honest. Joe Kent and the Republicans HATE women. Their extreme misogynistic party policies and proposed legislation are wide-scale direct attacks to restrict women's rights, especially reproductive rights.
Joe Kent is perfectly fine with denying women access to reproductive health services, particularly birth control and abortion services, no matter how much it may save a woman's life. He and the rest of the Republican party are all for the horrors of denying an abortion in the case of rape, or bringing criminal penalties against rape victims who seek abortions, no matter how young the rape victims may be.
As for workplace discrimination against women, equal pay scales and protecting women from abuse, Joe Kent makes sure to keep sowing the GOP's hatred of women by continuing to deny their importance and deflect away from topics important to women.
We can’t let a man who hates 52% of the population serve a single day in Congress!
If Joe Kent gets into Congress we can be assured that he'll do nothing to help the lower and middle classes. Instead he'll just go along with the rest of the Republicans, moving in lock step to only benefit the wealthy and huge corporations at the expense of everyone else. The Tax Cuts and Corporate Bailouts Republicans have been in favor of have led to shortfalls in every other sector of government services that help the lower and middle class. Higher medical costs, higher housing costs, and decreased infrastructure services are just some of the ways the Republican schemes of finance mismanagement have show how much HATE they have for hard-working, tax-paying Americans.
Joe Kent would be just another corrupt player in this massive theft from US citizens.
While conspiracy minded Joe Kent is off directing his hate at ridiculous culture wars, businesses and workers in the Pacific Northwest sink deeper into debt and ruination. Does Joe Kent offer any plans on how to bring good paying high tech jobs, manufacturing jobs, or small business incentive zones to anywhere in Washington District Three?
No. Instead of proposing real changes that would help to lift up the income of Washington businesses and workers, Joe Kent is too busy spinning Trump and Q-anon lies about mythical boogiemen coming after your children, or fiddling with our elections. We don't need a divisive, conspiracy nut like Joe Kent. He's obviously more concerned with dog whistle issues than with the reality of actually helping to grow Washington businesses or get workers better pay, good jobs, or affordable housing.
Joe Kent HATES that your children might learn the TRUE history of the United States regarding Slavery, the Civil War, or Black Americans' civil rights struggle. He thinks your children shouldn't learn about these things, or learn how immigration and the labor movement made this country great. He also thinks they shouldn't learn about the women's suffrage movement, women's rights or even about the functions of their own bodies. Furthermore, Extremist Joe Kent doesn't want your children to learn about other religions or cultures. Joe Kent wants your children to stay ignorant so that he and the Republican party can brainwash them with Racist Nationalist Demagoguery.
Joe Kent's kind of radical extremism only breeds more hate and violence, which as history has shown, destroys countries and democracies.
Joe Kent's authoritarian censorship has no place in truly honest, educational programs, especially at a time when American children are quickly falling behind the rest of the world in all areas of higher education. Our children will face a future fraught with huge problems that'll have to be solved by open, highly educated minds. Joe Kent and the Republican's agenda will only guaranteed more closed minds and more problems in that future.
Even worse, let's look at the past as a guide for what Joe Kent and Republicans will do if they win the majority in Congress. If we look at the Republican conference agreement on the fiscal year 2016 budget resolution, we see they proposed massive budget cuts to education that would have led to decreases in student programs and school funding as well as massive increases in student debt. Huge student student debt is one of the things that is currently putting a yoke around our economy. People with massive student loans are unable to make real contributions, such as home or auto purchases, to our country's economic growth. Instead they are roped into a life of perpetual loan repayment that constrains every aspect of their lives.
Considering all these factors, it's easy to see how much Joe Kent and the Republicans HATE to see Americans achieve the American dream of a good education and home ownership.
Joe Kent is an avowed Christian Nationalist, which is the anti-democratic false belief that America is a nation by and for Christians alone. This of course goes counter to the establishment clause of the First Amendment of the US Constitution which prohibits the government from making any law “respecting an establishment of religion.” This clause not only forbids the government from establishing an official religion, but also prohibits government actions that unduly favor one religion over another. It also prohibits the government from unduly preferring religion over non-religion, or non-religion over religion.
But Joe Kent thinks his right-wing misinterpretation of Christianity and the US Constitution allows him to discriminate and perpetuate violence against LGBTQI+ people, women, and religious minorities.
The truth is Christian Nationalism is a threat to US Democracy.
Joe Kent and other Republicans who follow Christian Nationalism are dangerous hypocrites. The claim religious freedom is all important, yet they readily deny the importance of other religions, or the rights of those who seek freedom FROM religion.
In their hateful attacks on others under their blind perversion of what Christianity really means, Joe Kent and the Republicans obviously forgot what it says in Matthew 5:44 or Proverbs 14:21 : "He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth."
Perhaps instead of sending Joe Kent to Congress we should send him a new bible and a copy of The US Constitution.
While Crazy Joe Kent is searching under his bed for fictional Antifa members, he's happily climbs under the bed covers with REAL Domestic Terrorists like the Oath Keepers and the Proud Boys, who are perpetuating real violence and the de-stabilization of our government!
He states he backs law enforcement but he obviously HATES them through his support of an insane country-wide Constitutional Carry/concealed carry permit. This lunacy will only lead to more guns getting on the streets and more gun deaths. One only has to look to Wisconsin to see how badly the concealed carry permit created more assaults and more gun deaths. If gun nut Joe Kent were serious about supporting Law enforcement, he'd be in favor of real background checks and giving law enforcement agencies the discretion to deny permits, thereby keeping more guns from getting into the wrong hands. But apparently Joe HATES the safety of Washingtonians or their law officers.
It's no lie that Republicans see every immigrant to the US as a threat, no matter how hard an immigrant works or how much they pay taxes. Republican leadership falsely perpetuates the ideas that every immigrant is a threat to jobs, to their voting base, and to the "whiteness" of the United States. Unfortunately, this kind of racist xenophobia is nothing new to our country. Every generation of immigrants has had to face this discrimination and the hardships which come from being used as tools by demagogues who want to achieve political office.
Joe Kent and the Republicans have become very skilled at amplifying this hatred of immigrants for their own political gain. But truth is the Republican position on immigrants is just mean-spirited hypocrisy.
Our country has always heavily relied on immigrants in almost every unskilled job sector. Agriculture, Farming, Manufacturing, Food services and Hospitality are just some of the industries that need hard-working immigrants.
Instead of attacking and victimizing immigrants, as Republicans have done, we should be providing immigrants with more effective pathways to become honest, tax-paying citizens, whose tax contributions can help bolster the funds of things like Social Security or Medicare.
Unfortunately short-sighted Republicans like Joe Kent would rather step on immigrants as scapegoats for HATE on his climb into office.
Joe Kent must HATE his own children. How else could he think that relying on more oil and gas drilling will save them from a quickly heating world due to fossil fuel driven Climate Change? While wanting Energy Independence is a great idea, his approach is incredibly wrong-headed. He apparently believes the lies told to him by own party regarding their collusion with Oil and Gas companies to keep plundering and polluting the world for the sake of shared greed.
Joe Kent also seems to believe the lies of auto industry lobbyists. The Auto Industry could easily help increase our country's Energy Independence by making cars and trucks, especially trucks, with improved technology to have higher MPG standards, but the auto industry won't implement these changes unless Congress forces them. Joe Kent should open his eyes and see that the move to more renewable and less polluting technologies such as electric or hydrogen fuel cells furthers that independence goal more the fossil fuel drilling ever will.
Joe Kent must also hate humanity as a whole when it comes to saying U.S. energy independence should rely on nuclear energy. He foolishly thinks it’s clean, safe and affordable.
Aside from the obvious problem of where to store used nuclear reactor waste, The average nuclear power generating cost is about $100 per megawatt-hour. Compare this with $50 per megawatt-hour for solar and $30 to $40 per megawatt-hour for onshore wind. Renewable energy from Wind and Solar has been proven time and again to be safer and cleaner than nuclear energy, but we guess Joe Kent would rather that Washington State have more polluted Hanford nuclear waste sites than admit he's lying about his energy plan.
Sadly, it’s his children and their children that will have to deal with the awful consequences of his misguided energy lies and his hatred of real environmentalism.
JOE KENT IS TOO EXTREME, TOO MISINFORMED
AND TOO HATEFUL FOR WA DISTRICT #3!
