[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Leftist Washington State Governor, progressive Democrat Jay Inslee, came out against religious liberty on Monday, banning government-funded travel to the State of Indiana, because of the state’s new Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
Just days later, Inslee, a hysterical global warming alarmist, honored a government that allows its citizens no religious liberty and no freedom of speech, as well as having a history of heinous human rights violations (not to mention the biggest polluter on the planet).[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Progressives Today first reported that Inslee wanted to show “honor” to China Ambassador Cui Tiankai, who he was meeting with, and what a better way than to fly the Communist regime’s flag in front of the state capitol in Olympia, at the same height as the U.S. flag?!
The PolitiStick reached out to Washington State Representative Elizabeth Scott, who formerly taught in the Communist country of China, who strongly pointed out the irony and hypocrisy of the state boycotting Indiana, while honoring a tyrannical regime that inprisons people for their beliefs.
Representative Scott told us:
“I spent two years teaching in Red Communist China, 1989-1991.
As a State Representative (39th LD), I am working as hard as I can to preserve liberty for my children and to restore the liberty we have lost. The assaults on life, liberty, and property are daily and frankly, I was not amused to see this flag flying over our state capitol, particularly when our governor just made a big show out of ‘shaming’ Indiana for joining 19 other states with legislation to protect freedom of conscience.
The irony was just too rich!
So it’s okay to threaten a flower shop owner in our state with the loss of her house, business, etc., and we can mock other states for their attempts to protect freedom of conscience, but we’re totally fine flying the flag of a country that still throws people into prison camps because of their beliefs?
It’s time to stand up and fight for our freedoms and remind elected officials that our state and U.S. Constitutions were set up to protect our rights to life, liberty and property. That is the whole point of governments being ‘instituted among men.'”
Flying the Chinese Communist Flag apparently didn’t sit well with a group of brave patriotic Washintonians. In the video below, you’ll see them remove the Chinese flag early Saturday morning, all with the assistance of what appears to be a Washington State trooper or other officer!
Full disclosure: This writer ran against then Congressman Inslee in 2010 in Washington state.
