Arizona Democrats tell America how they really feel about this country.
Fox: “A local Arizona Democratic Party deleted a tweet promoting an event called “F–k the Fourth.” The event, which the now-deleted tweet said was being hosted by the Tucson Women’s March, was promoted by the Pima County Democratic Party on Twitter. “F–k the Fourth. See you at Reid Park,” the tweet stated. “Bring comfortable shoes, water, lawn chairs, posters, and your anger,” the event description reads.

Then they tried to walk it back. “PCDP posted a graphic advertising a women’s march which, we agree, was in poor taste. We were eager to share the event, and in our haste we used the graphic provided by the event organizer. That was a mistake, and we will do better,” the Pima County Democratic Party tweeted. “Make no mistake, however. We support the event which will be on July 4 at 7 pm at Reid Park. The event was organized to help women in our community grieve for the loss of their bodily autonomy, which we consider an elemental right.”
They also said that while the graphic “upset some people,” the outrage should be saved for “the women in this state who will die of botched abortions…Our posting of the graphic upset some people. We urge you to save your outrage for the women in this state who will die of botched abortions. Arizona is not a good place to be a woman right now,” the group said. “This July4th won’t be the same, it will be a solemn occasion. We have lost rights,” one retweet states. “I will not celebrate a country that doesn’t recognize my rights to my own body,” states another. Not exactly a ringing apology.
Karrin Taylor Robson, a Republican candidate for governor in Arizona, said in response to the event that “This sickens me,” saying the event is an example of “the modern Democrat Party in a single tweet.”
“There it is – the modern Democrat Party in a single tweet. Arizona patriots will gather w/ friends/family on Independence Day to celebrate our nation’s birth & honor those who sacrificed for our freedom. But these Democrats will be doing something very different. Shameful,” Robson said.
“Pima County Democrats must be in the shovel business with the hole they’re digging themselves into,” Cameron Arcand, a writer for Red State, wrote.
Not all Democrats shared the sentiment. Democrat Adrian Fontes, who’s running for Secretary of State in Arizona, also slammed the tweet, asking “What the h–l are you thinking @PimaDems? Absolutely NOT how this Democrat feels. What the h–l are you thinking @PimaDems?!? How does this help us WIN?…Take this trash down!,” Fontes wrote. Well said Mr. Fontes, but too little too late. Your party’s hatred for America has been exposed, by yourselves.
