Mindy Robinson is running for Congress of Nevada’s District 3 in the Republican primary slated for June in what has turned into perhaps the strangest election year of our lifetime, and we’ve had some odd ones.
The Post Millennial wanted to find out more about this Massachusetts native who moved to California to become an actress, and is now a Nevada congressional contender.
TPM: Some journalists are concerned about how civil rights are being affected due to broader government reach into our lives due to the pandemic, from everything from free speech, free assembly, freedom to bear arms. How do you think Americans will be able to get their civil rights back after the pandemic passes?
MR: Like most people, I want to do the right thing during this time of crisis to help keep my fellow Americans safe...but it’s also impossible not to notice the immediate power grab the Left went for here. The minute our backs were against the wall and we were at our neediest, the Democrats saw it as a green light to start stripping away at our constitutional rights while simultaneously using the opportunity to push forward their leftist ideals and socialist platform. If they think Americans didn’t notice, or that we weren’t going to demand our rights back the minute this is over...then they’re in for a very rude awakening.
TPM: CNN and other media outlets have used their platforms to block President With CNN broadcasting Trump's press conference on a delay rather than live. What does this say about the future for the press in the US?
MR: It couldn’t be any clearer that our media is biased against conservatives and manipulative in general. You’ll notice that when people on social media started calling out fake news that that’s when the platforms started cracking down and censoring vocal conservatives and libertarians. Every time the Left can’t win they try to move the goal posts instead, and I believe ALL of America sees what they’ve been doing now.
TPM: What do you think the best way to handle the uninsured is during this crisis?
MR: I think all the uninsured that get sick with corona should be treated...and then China gets the bill. In reality the government would probably pay the bill out of the stimulus package...but I think we should at least wipe our trillion debt out with China and hold them to the fire for this, honestly.
TPM: What do you think "normal" looks like after this for both Nevada and America?
MR: Normal is for people to go back to work and salvage what we can out of this economy...which I have faith that as Americans we can do.
With a Governor that has restricted the use of a working medication to treat coronavirus, to district Reps like Susie Lee (who I’m currently running against) that refuse to address the concerns of their constituents...this entire situation has exposed the inadequacy and pettiness of Nevada politics. If we can see this as any kind of warning...it’s that the Democrats cannot be trusted in positions of power when emergency situations arise...not without them trying to take away our rights, guns, freedoms, and pushing a socialist agenda to the detriment of American citizens apparently.
