Stop talking about Barbie and do your job—or get out of Congress!
The president of Barbie Land, played by Issa Rae in the new film directed by Greta Gerwig, would not tolerate conspiracy to incite armed insurrection. And here in the real world, we don't either. Add your name to tell Sen. Ted Cruz and MAGA Republicans that they are no more welcome in Barbie Land than they are in Congress.
Why is this important?
In the midst of multiple social, political, and environmental crises, Sen. Cruz and other conservative members of the GOP have decided to use their platform to oppose…the new Barbie movie. Sen. Ted Cruz called it “Chinese communist propaganda” due to a crudely drawn map briefly shown in the film, and Rep. Matt Gaetz's finacee called for a boycott of the film.
While we recognize the impact that glib and careless representations of geography can have within larger historical and sociopolitical contexts, let's be clear: A man whose actions contributed to a violent insurrection isn't concerned about geopolitics or democracy. We suspect Sen. Cruz and MAGA Republicans just don't like a movie that actually passes the Bechdel test and where a Black woman was elected president.
Sign the petition to let Sen. Cruz and MAGA Republicans know that they are no more welcome in Barbie Land than they are in Congress!
How it will be delivered
When we reach 250,000 signatures, we'll deliver the petition to Sen. Cruz's office on *official* pink paper.
