A video that was taken in 2011 shows current Arizona Democratic Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema mocking Arizonans as “crazy” while giving a speech in Texas.

She further called Arizona, as a whole, a “crazy” state and blamed it on Republicans.

“Because over the past several years, people would watch what was happening in Arizona and be like, ‘Damn, those people are crazy. Is it something about the water?’ No, the water’s fine,” Sinema told the audience. “We swell from Colorado. There’s nothing wrong with the water. They’re just called Republicans.”

According to Sinema, she was trying to warn the Texans how to prevent their state from turning into Arizona.

“And I want to talk to you about some of the things that I think that you can do to stop your state from becoming Arizona. […] Because Arizona is the state of the five C’s. So cattle, copper, citrus, cotton, and climate,” she explained. “And those are the five things that our state historically made its money off of. But I would add a sixth C. It’s called crazy.”

Watch the video below:

In a 2006 interview with Scottsdale nightlife magazine 944, Sinema had harsh words for stay-at-home moms, according to the Phoenix New Times.

“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 said. “That’s bulls**t. I mean, what the f**k are we really talking about here?”

Sinema later backtracked her comments, passing them off as an “over-the-top ‘Daily Show’-type spoof.”

  1. I’d need to hear the context more. Sounds bad, but I say stuff is crazy all the time. It’s just how I talk. What is she specifically saying is crazy?

    That last bit about stay at home moms… not cool. I’m not, but it IS feminsm to choose that as your life.

    • Don’t think there is much more “context” needed??? Obvious that she is working the crowd bad mouthing Republicans… If YOU say such stuff to your friends, ok, but you have to take accountability if you say if from a obvious political platform… why would you not?

        • I’m a Democrat. I try to fit the word choice in all of my conversations. I’m lazy about it though – so sometimes i just scream “its my choice” and slap coffe out of your hands when i walk by. Its why I’m not allowed in the office before 11 AM.

          (I’m kidding)

          • Phoenix, we both know there’s a huge difference between using words and actually living them. Where the choice is all your’s and the other side gets none, well that’s a choice too. It’s called oppression.

            Remind me never to drink coffee around you. *g*

        • Now how did my comment that was in support of stay at home moms get taken to oppression?

          Did we jump topics to abortion or whats your beef with stay at home moms? If we jumped to abortion, i would be a bit surprised if you assumed my views on abortion were so black and white.

          • Abortion? That’s not what I meant by “choice”. I was referring to another thread we had where “choice” also came up, but abortion was not a part of that discussion.

            Let’s avoid the conflation of “choice” as ONLY meaning abortion or not. It’s an unfortunate side-effect of the use of “pro-choice”

        • That was my bad

          In a perfect, or in my opinion minimum standard, partnership/marriage, the choice would be discussed between both partners and a mutual decision is made.

          I’ve always thought of choice, in this instance, to be a reminder that you have a voice in the discussion and your vote in the decision counts. Not that yours is the ONLY vote that counts.

          • I agree that the choice to work/stay at home should be an adult and rational one AND mutually agreed upon, BUT sometimes economic circumstances dictate the “choice”.

    • I watched a somewhat longer video of her speech. Besides trashing her fellow Arizonans she went on to warn Texans NOT to let their state become another Arizona, filled with Republicans (and craziness).

      • I didn’t have time today to watch the video so I’ll trust you on that. I guess will be up to AZ voters to decide if they agreed with her statements or not.

        It would be weird if she were actually saying Texans shouldn’t let Republicans overrun the state of Texas. Mainly because it is Texas – it is already filled with Republicans. That is really the only reason I wondered if there was more to what she was saying – though I also do not doubt a Republican wouldn’t like whatever it was she was saying.

        • I too was pressed for time, but did a little research. She’s a real winner. (/sarc)

          Sinema’s has campaigned on claims that she lived as a “homeless child”, which the NYT (!!) has proven an outright lie. She’s also claimed that US soldiers who died in Iraq and Afghanistan were “terrorists” who deserved it. The last was on a campaign flyer.

  2. They managed to talk about a viral video without ever showing it. Guess I’ll pass the baton to the retards in the room. . .

  3. Touting hatred heart! Doesn’t belong is any office of the people ANYWHERE! Arizona is a beautiful state. WALK AWAY!! United we stand !! ♥️✝️♥️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
