Texas Democrat Kesha Rogers compares President Obama to Hitler; leads U.S. Senate race

keshaLeft-wing loony Kesha Rogers has been making headlines for a few years now with her anti-Obama diatribe. But it’s no longer a laughing matter because Rogers is actually a front runner for a seat in the Senate.

Rogers is a loud-mouthed political activist who spews nonstop invectives at President Obama whom she wants impeached, and she even went so far as to compare his Obamacare to the policies of the Nazi regime.

Her uncouth and unscrupulous tactics are paying handsome dividends, however. Political “ratchetness” has unexpectedly surged the neophyte to front-runner status in the race to become Texas’ Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate.

Rogers is a follower of Lyndon LaRouche, who heads a fringe political movement that has been compared to a cult. His supporters are often seen carrying signs depicting Obama with a Hitler mustache. One of Rogers’ own campaign posters features that image, and reads, “Down with the Traitor! Impeach!”

Five candidates are facing off Tuesday in the Democratic primary election for the chance to unseat Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas in November. A February 24 poll by The University of Texas and The Texas Tribune showed Rogers leading the field.

The two-time loser of the Texas congressional seat is not getting the support of the Democratic Party. Former Rep. Martin Frost, D-Texas speculated on MSNBC Monday that Rogers’ boost is due to name recognition; she previously ran for Congress in 2010 and 2012.

Emmanuel Garcia, the communications director of the Texas Democratic Party, told The Huffington Post Tuesday that he didn’t expect any candidate would win the primary outright and that a run-off election was likely. In such a scenario, Garcia said he is confident that Rogers would lose.

Garcia added that Rogers has been on his radar for some time, and the party’s been trying to warn voters to steer clear of supporting her. It has disavowed the LaRouche organization, passing a resolution in December stating,

“Texas Democratic Party will have no relationship with the campaign of any person indentifying [sic] him or herself as aligned with the LaRouche Movement or Lyndon LaRouche.”

The party has also disseminated a fact sheet about Rogers to its members and local chairs.

    Selling your soul to get elected to office. This tells you right away, she is not working for the people. Tired of crazies and fly by nites.

    Why is she a NUT case, is it simply because she has her own opinion about the president. Do shame someone because of what they believe. Numbers don’t lie, when a sitting president spends the kind of money he did with no results. You would question it too or are you.

      @ Kingman112 – NO RESULTS…That’s a lie…President Obama is trying to better America and the people…but you have the powers to be trying at every level to stop that…People like you like to DISTORT the truth and TWIST words…the American people see through all of that and that’s why the Replublican party will lose seats in the next election…The American public remember the Shutdown and how the Republicans were so childish and irresponsible, slowing the Recovery with their actions, not putting it to a vote, etc..all while they still collected paychecks…
      As for Ms. Rodgers, I will do my research on her…but to call the President, Hitler, is disrespectful and damn near treasonist. OBAMACARE is GREAT and we will see the great things about it in the future…A Healthy Nation is a Prosperous Nation. Now that it’s the law, everyone should try to make it work, especially the Republicans, but they’re wasting everyone time and MONEY trying to repel it. Anything will work when people are behind it!
      What we need to do to help the economy is first stop FRAUD within the Food Stamp program and other programs like that…what are they called Entitlements? I’m sure some of you know people who sell Food Stamps after they get them from the government…Everyone on entitlements should be held Accountable and should Work to receive entitlements…I realize there are some real cases where that cannot happen (from medical reasons to terminal illnesses), however, if you get any kind of entitlements, you should work to get them. Stoping fraud and having people on entitlements work for what the get from the government will put this country on path to Greatness.
      So much to say, not enough time to say it…

    What recovery, do you understand for someone to have spent more money than all the other presidents combine and yet has nothing to show for it Is terrible. And please don’t forget that he was given the best opportunity for success than any other president has had by having the presidency, the congress and the senate ALL under one party and still have nothing to show for. As a man you have to stop blaming others for your short comings ie Bush. But as yourself are you happy with your take home pay these days.

        I’m sorry but if you spend a million dollars on a home that was suppose to cost $50k and it’s after 6 years it’s still not built. Then in my eyes you have failed. But please don’t miss understand me, They All Don’t Care For You. Democrats nor republicans, the black ones nor the white ones Don’t care for us. It’s a business of getting rich and staying rich. The next time you vote I ask that you vote for someone new in. That’s the only way things are going to change for us.

    Selling you soul, isn’t that what they ALL do. So let’s trying something new…Vote them all out and start over.

    Kesha !!She will have my vote 100%. Don’t judge her being connected to
    LaRouche, instead start reading both of their websites and then you
    won’t sit here like idiots reading this column and some of the idiotic
    comments. She is a Brilliant woman to say the least ! She is a woman of
    Change, and this woman is not some backed Millionaire who sits and
    blows steam like the rest of the dems here in Texas. Start being
    informed and finally back a real candidate. For her single issues, she
    states in a nutshell she wants Obama out of office for the USA to make
    big changes and to come back out of the hell we are in right now. Start
    waking up realizing Keisha is the only chance we’ve got for a future.
    She will create a massive change starting in Texas and trickling down
    from there, you will see,
