Democracy Alliance, the George Soros-led left-wing donorsâ€™ collaborative thatÂ aims to turn America into a European-styleÂ socialist state,Â has welcomed a new board member from Colorado named Ted Trimpa.
According to Rob Witwer, aÂ Republican former member of theÂ Colorado house of representatives, Trimpa played a significant role in helping to convert Colorado from a solid Republican state to a solid Democratic state in a few short years.
An Atlantic article from 2007 describes Trimpa as â€œan acerbic lawyer and former tobacco lobbyist.â€ It also describes the gay activist as â€œColoradoâ€™s answer to Karl Rove.â€ Trimpa was also mentioned in a Time article in the fall. The article bore the tongue-in-cheek title, “The Gay Mafia That’s Redefining Liberal Politics.” Trimpa also understands Republicans and how they think: he used to work as an aide toÂ former U.S. Sen. Nancy Kassebaum (R-Kansas).
Trimpa’s bio at the Democracy Alliance website describes him as
…a sought-after advocate resulting from his deep understanding of the national and multistate political and nonprofit landscape. He has been recognized in national publications, including The Atlantic Monthly, National Review, The Advocate, and The Weekly Standard for his central role in designing cutting edge public policy strategies.
Trimpa’s approach to politics bears a resemblance to the in-your-face approach advocated by radical leftist Saul Alinsky.
“You have to create an environment of fear and respect,” Trimpa told the Bay Area Reporter. “The only way to do that is to get aggressive and go out and actually beat them up [politically]. Sitting there crying and whining about being victims isn’t going to get us equality. What is going to get us equality is fighting for it.”
