Yes, Far-Right, “White-History”-Defending VA Sen. Amanda Chase (R) Really Is Comparing Herself to the “First Lady of Civil Rights” Rosa Parks

This is Trump's Republican Party...you can't make it up.


Yes, far-right Virginia State Senator Amanda Chase (R) really is comparing herself to the “first lady of civil rights” and “mother of the freedom movement” Rosa Parks. Of course, this IS Amanda Chase we’re talking about – the COVID-denyingCOVID-superspreadingERA-demonizing, “white history”-defending 2021 gubernatorial candidate who  recently claimed – falsely, of course – that Indigenous People’s Day is “a fraud pushed by pseudo-communists intent on destroying our country!”; who claimed  “It’s those who are naive and unprepared that end up raped”; who said “I Call My Revolver My Little Equal Rights Amendment” and “The ERA Amendment is nothing more than a ploy by the left to eliminate gender altogether”; etc. And yes, in Trump’s Republican Party, Chase is actually considered the frontrunner – at least at the moment – for the 2021 VA GOP gubernatorial nomination. Crazy.
