Devout Socialist Democrat and congressional candidate Mike Siegel is making quite a name for himself among Progressives, raising just under $1 million for his campaign and moving the Progressive political ball up the court against his Republican candidate, Rep. Mike McCaul.
Siegel is an unapologetic “red diaper baby” and Communist sympathizer, whose support for Black Lives Matter and defunding police is garnering him support and media attention, but could ultimately cause him the election against the well-funded McCaul?
Siegel’s defense of the criminal activities of Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA anarchists is displayed on his social media and his campaign website for the world to see.
“This is what is called an “extrajudicial killing,” tweeted Siegel in response to Trump’s remarks about the police-involved shooting death of the individual wanted in the murder of an anti-ANTIFA protestor in Portland, Oregon.

“Now we sent in the US marshals for the killer, the man that killed the young man in the street,” said Trump. “Two and a half days went by, and I put out [on Twitter], ‘When are you going to go get him?’ And the US marshals went in to get in, and in a short period of time, they ended in a gunfight. This guy was a violent criminal, and the US marshals killed him. And I’ll tell you something — that’s the way it has to be. There has to be retribution when you have crime like this.”
Siegel believes that Michael Reinoehl, the fugitive, was unjustly killed and without due process by U.S.marshals.
Recent national public opinion polls show that over 70 percent of Americans do not support the defund police narrative that Black Lives Matter and Progressives like Siegel support and promote. Mike Siegel has been endorsed by Indivisible, one of the leading “defund policc” organizations.
