Kesha Rogers, a Democratic congressional candidate, has lost the support of her party for her criticism of President Obama, and for comparing the president’s Affordable Care Act to the same ideology that led to the Holocaust, and for calling for his impeachment, according to media reports.
Rogers called for the impeachment of the president in 2010 because of the dismal performance with the economy and what she calls “non-leadership,” BET.com reports. She also campaigns on the platform that “Mr. Obama is a puppet of the bankrupt financial system, and has pushed policies made notorious by the Adolph Hitler regime … since condemned by the entire world,” adds the HuffPost.
Rogers is a Democratic nominee for the U.S. Congress for Texas’s 22nd District, and as the Huffington Post reports, Gilberto Hinojosa, chairman of the Texas Democratic Party, said the party was surprised that Rogers won her primary race because she had been cut off from all resources available to Democratic candidates due to her lack of support for the president.
Hinojosa also said that Rogers, who won her primary race by just 103 votes, could have done so with the aide of African American voters that didn’t know her political stance. He also said he does not rule out Republican influence in Rogers getting elected.
And to top it all off, the current slogan for her website is “Save NASA, Dump Obama.” Slandering your own party can’t be a good look if you’re trying to stay or get in office.
