Eyman attacks civil rights
On Monday, January 30th, Tim Eyman filed an initiative to overturn the recently passed HB 2661, which outlaws discrimination based on sexual orientation. Tim Eyman has truly established himself as an evil person:
He seeks to cripple the very institutions that form the foundation of our representative democracy.
He seeks to appeal to the people of the state under false pretenses, masquerading as a faux populist and distorting the truth, attempting to convince the electorate to stab itself in the back.
He seeks to destroy funding for our most precious and valued public services – services that make our communities livable, like police and fire protection, libraries and schools, parks and pools, and public works.
He seeks to make our society less safe and undermine our economy by wiping out government investments in transportation infrastructure.
And now he seeks to allow discrimination and inequality in Washington State.
Tim Eyman is a filthy, despicable creature. This organization, the Northwest Progressive Institute, and its Permanent Defense division, will not allow Tim Eyman to go unchallenged.
This organization will stand up not only to defend transportation funding, but it will also stand up to defend equality and civil rights.
Tim Eyman has been defeated before. He will be defeated again. Whether or not his measures get on the ballot this year, we will work to stop him. The fight against Eyman is a battle to save the future and the health of Washington State. We can and we will win it.
