A homosexual state senator in Utah is apologizing for donating to a left-wing rioter representing the ANTIFA/Black Lives Matter movement who has been charged with a felony.
“It is a matter of record that I support criminal justice reform. I love Salt Lake City and Utah, and I believe in progressive activism,” Sen. Derek Kitchen (D-Salt Lake City) wrote in his apology.
“In this instance I responded to a solicitation on social media for financial support for what I understood would be a peaceful rally for justice,” he continued.
“I gave a small contribution to support the cause of justice, but I wasn’t involved in the planning or organization of the event,” he explained. “I did not attend the protest and have only seen press reports of what happened. I will always advocate for the constitutional right to peaceful protest but I don’t condone violence or vandalism.”

Kitchen is being investigated with four other liberal Democrats for donating to the Venmo account of ANTIFA/BLM rioter Madalena McNeil. McNeil has been charged with a first-degree felony for her alleged participation in a violent July 9 protest in which police were accosted and the district attorney’s office was vandalized.
Kitchen sent $10 to McNeil on June 28 along with the word “paint” to describe his Venmo donation. McNeil and other leftists have been accused of vandalizing the district attorney’s office with paint, which makes it seem as if Kitchen knew exactly what he was supporting when he sent money to the activist.
McNeil confirmed in a tweet that she is friends with Kitchen and whined about how police resources were being squandered by the investigation.
“Good to know that police resources are being spent to investigate the very serious crime of my friend sending me $10. Never forget that all of this is because @SimGillDA got his feelings hurt by protestors speaking out against him upholding and excusing police brutality,” she wrote.
Salt Lake City police spokesman Greg Wilking is currently investigating the matter, and his office is taking the matter very seriously.
“It’s one of those things where people are paying to get this paint that will cause destruction and cost taxpayers money,” Wilking said. “We don’t look at the size of crime, necessarily. It’s what that represents.”
Big League Politics has reported on dangerous leftist riots in Utah, including a Provo display that featured a deranged leftist shooting at a terrified motorist:
Footage emerged Monday night of a Black Lives Matter rioter opening fire upon a motorist who refused to stop for a roadblock the mob of rioters had set up in Provo, Utah, inching through an intersection as a group of rioters attempted to detain him.
The mask-clad man was caught on camera firing at the window of the motorist’s SUV at least twice.
A close-up shows a rioter clearly holding a semiautomatic pistol, which can be heard firing at the man’s white SUV at least twice.
The pistol is quite clearly pointed at the vehicle’s driver, potentially creating a basis for attempted murder charges against the violent criminal who opened fire. The earlier footage shows little to no real risk to the rioters as the driver inched through their illegal roadblock, and they could’ve easily just stood aside as the man drove on his way.
The incident has several similarities to an earlier Black Lives Matter shooting in Amalosa, Colorado, in which an attorney named James Marshall shot a disabled veteran in the head. Marshall would later be charged with attempted murder, although remarkably the BLM protestor, who is caught on camera shooting at Danny Pruitt, has been freed on bail.
Democrats are learning that there are consequences for fomenting a nationwide terror movement. Kitchen will be lucky if he is not detained by DHS for his supporting role in ANTIFA/BLM violence.
Michigan Republicans Demand Inquiry Into Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Murderous COVID-19 Nursing Home Policies
She is as guilty as Cuomo.
Republican lawmakers in the state of Michigan are pushing back against Governor Gretchen Whitmer for her genocidal COVID-19 policies that have resulted in the needless deaths of countless elderly individuals.
State senator Jim Runestad is leading the charge to hold Whitmer accountable in a similar manner that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is now being held accountable for implementing similarly murderous policies in his state.
“Gov. Whitmer’s regional hub policy placed patients with and without COVID-19 in the same facilities and may have exacerbated the death toll in those facilities,” said Runestad in a press release.
“Questions remain regarding the accuracy of data, compliance with CDC guidelines and compliance with our state’s Freedom of Information Act. There is a critical need for a full investigation into these matters,” he added.
Runestad believes a federal investigation is needed into Whitmer’s actions because of how her COVID-19 approach has lacked transparency.
“Michiganders understand there are many, many similarities between Gov. Whitmer’s handling of the virus and Gov. Cuomo’s: their unilateral overreach (both struck down by the courts), their allusion to vague metrics and data, their questionable vaccine distribution plans, and their outright defiance to losing their emergency powers. The alarming similarities with New York raise serious questions about what really happened in Michigan,” Runestad said.
Runestad and other Michigan Republican lawmakers have sent letters to Attorney General Dana Nessel and the Department of Justice demanding accountability, but Democrats are not likely to police their own behavior.
Big League Politics has reported on how Whitmer doubled down on her policies to murder elderly nursing home patients by housing COVID-19 sufferers next to them:
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer vetoed a bipartisan bill on Friday that would have protected the elderly and vulnerable by banning COVID-19 patients from being quarantined in nursing homes.
“Protecting the health and safety of nursing home residents and their staff continues to be a top priority for my administration,” Governor Whitmer said while announcing her veto.
“Senate Bill 956 is nothing more than a political game that would relocate vulnerable seniors without any requirement for consent, doctor’s approval, or notification to patients and their families. It’s time for the Republican legislature to get serious about protecting our most vulnerable and addressing the public health and economic crisis faced by our state. We look forward to continuing our work with stakeholders and legislators on the task force to develop real solutions that make sense for Michigan seniors and their families,” she added.
Senate Republicans are firing back at Whitmer for her cruel and callous decision to veto the common sense legislation.
“In a mean-spirited move, Gov. Whitmer announced she vetoed a plan that would have prevented COVID-19 patients from entering our nursing homes,” they wrote.
While Michigan Republicans may be putting an effort toward pushing back against Whitmer, she is not likely to be held accountable until she is up for re-election in 2022.
