"linked to controversial legislation such as Florida's "stand your ground" law, voter suppression and climate change-deniers."

"stand your ground": Means they don't want you to protect yourself.

"Voter suppression": Meaning they want anyone to be able to vote, like the criminals, mentally retard and the likes, societies most precious members.

"climate change-deniers": Meaning they want big govt. to tax people more so that they can start a new govt agency.

Common Cause = Good
Freedom to express other ideas = evil and must be stopped.
That's the America I'm proud to be part of.
