Read Keith's response to the radical right's ongoing attacks on our values:
“Ellison supports discrimination against women.” “There is a very thin line between communism, progressivism, Marxism, Socialism.” These are the newest lines in the latest barrage of attacks designed to tear me down because I won’t back down when it comes to defending our progressive values.
Fox News, Tea Party Rep. Allen West, and my Republican opponent don’t like it when I talk about tax fairness, women’s rights, or getting corporate money out of politics—so they sling mud. It’s politics as usual, and it’s a telling sign that conservatives have no credibility when it comes to the issues that matter most.
The radical right is stepping up its game because they’re scared of our values. They’re scared of an America where everybody counts and everybody matters, where there’s economic prosperity for all, not just the richest 1 percent.
I can weather these attacks, but it’s only because people like you have got my back.
P.S. Conservatives are attacking me because, like you, I support health care for all, equal pay for women, and our right to collectively bargain. Chip in $5 or more right now so we have the resources to prepare for the radical right’s next round of attacks.
