Cartoonist Depicts Martha McSally, First Woman to Fly in Combat, Getting Shot Down By Political Opponent

A cartoonist from Arizona Central crossed the line of decency and invoked violence, standard operating procedure for Democrats in 2018, in a cartoon depicting Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) shooting down Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) published Sunday.

Steve Benson, an editorial cartoonist, drew the Democrat candidate for U.S. Senate holding a bazooka, while the Republican candidate’s plane crashed and burned. McSally, an Air Force officer, was the first female to fly combat missions.

But leftists do not celebrate the shattering of “glass ceilings” when Republicans shatter them – only the political left can have that honor. They instead turn to violent and sexist attacks against their political adversaries.

McSally and Sinema are locked in a tight race to determine who will replace retiring Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) in the U.S. Senate, which will be decided in the Nov. 6 midterm elections. The news media is dutifully promoting the Democrats, as usual.

But Sinema has run into trouble over the past couple of weeks, as five videos were separately released showing her mocking the state of Arizona while old Tweets of her doing the same were drudge up. Friday, reports were released showing Sinema bashing stay-at-home mothers, calling them “leeches.”

“These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life,” she told Scottsdale nightlife magazine 944 in 2012. “That’s bullshit. I mean, what the f*** are we really talking about here?”

That likely will not help Sinema in a midterm cycle where suburban women are a hotly contested demographic.
