Some Arizona Democrats had a “sorry, not sorry” moment over the weekend regarding how radically different they feel from most ordinary Americans about celebrating Independence Day. After tweeting and then deleting an offensive post about an Independence Day protest, the Pima County Democratic Party offered a patently insincere apology.
The post was originally tweeted by the Tucson Women’s March advertising a gathering at a Tucson park with the banner “Let’s Mourn With F*** the Fourth.” It told readers to “bring comfortable shoes, water, lawn chairs, posters, and your anger.”
The event was in apparent response to the decision issued by the Supreme Court on June 24 that struck down the 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade. The new ruling returns the issue of abortion regulation or prohibition to the states individually.
The Libs of TikTok account regularly posts images of liberal hysteria just as it was originally published in order to show the often ridiculous nature of leftist social media content. The account posted a screenshot of a post made by the official account of the Pima County Democratic Party retweeting the offensive Tucson Women’s March post.
The Pima County Democrats later deleted their post with the “F*** the Fourth” image. The group said that it was “eager to share the event” and hastily posted the image it then admitted it “was in poor taste.”
The PCDP said, “That was a mistake, and we will do better.” The post did not directly address the party’s use of the offensive language in reference to the Fourth of July.
The party went on in its thread to say “Make no mistake, however, we support the event.” It said the event was set up to help “women in our community grieve for the loss of their bodily autonomy.” The PCDP asked readers to “save your outrage” for Arizona women it claims will die because of the court’s decision.
The party went on to declare that “Arizona is not a good place to be a woman right now.”
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s office issued a press release indicating that the state’s “trigger law” banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy will go into effect in approximately 90 days.
The Tucson Women’s March meanwhile remained unapologetic about using the vulgar term in reference to the American holiday. It said that it is not the only organization using the same phrase and added that it supports all communities affected by the court’s decision. The group claimed that includes Native, BIPOC, and LGBTQIA people.
