New Low for Oklahoma Republican Party

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, August 5, 2021 – How much lower and disgusting can the OKGOP get by fundraising off of the despicable social media post comparing the treatment of the unvaccinated to the genocide of 6 million Jews?

“What has the OKGOP come to? Oklahomans, regardless of party affiliation, should not tolerate any leader using anti-Semitic actions to fundraise. Oklahoma Republican Party Chair John Bennett has a history of hateful vitriol, specifically towards Muslims, and his latest doubling-down and Star of David comparison is just plain vulgar,” stated Alicia Andrews, Chairwoman of the Oklahoma Democratic Party.

“We don’t need nor want this type of leadership in our State. It’s an embarrassment. Despite political differences, the Republican Party use to stand for values. The OKGOP Chair is not adding any value to Oklahoma. This disgusting venom is hurting not only the Republican Party but Oklahomans as well.

“It’s time for elected Republican leaders and Party officials to not only stand up against the hostile take-over of their State Party but also this disgusting behavior, and rid their Party of the extreme infiltration spreading like cancer,” concluded Andrews.
