Woke hostage-taking infects House Democratic Caucus

September 14, 2023

Extreme House Democrat Andrea Salinas says she supports a government shutdown unless her woke ideological priorities are funded in a letter to Speaker McCarthy:


What Salinas is threatening to shut the government down over:

  • The elimination DOD funding for sex reassignment surgeries and gender hormone treatments.
  • The prohibition of unapproved flags at military facilities.
  • A ban on taxpayer-funded drag shows on military bases

NRCC National Press Secretary Will Reinert said: “Demanding taxpayer-funded drag shows on military bases is Andrea Salinas’ hostage in order to fund the government. It’s not just AOC and Ilhan Omar – even rank-and-file House Democrats are radical and dangerously out of touch with reality.”
