“I like Indians and I like Redskins. I like Aunt Jemima and I like Uncle Ben. I like Robert E Lee and I like Stonewall Jackson. I don’t like traitors who hate America,” wrote Rogers, apparently missing the irony of herself praising literal traitors. “Stand up for our culture!”

Rogers is a fierce Trump supporter and an advocate of the controversial partisan “audit” going on in Maricopa County, and has given commentary to the far-right conspiracy theory network One America News (OANN) as they have covered the process.
