I tried to post this yesterday, but for some reason it didn’t take.
I wasn’t going to post this since I already talked about it twice before, but several people have gotten into the act including a blistering open letter sent to Senator Saslaw by Nicki Fellenzer of The Liberty Zone.
Since it’s generating so much interest, here’s the letter I sent to Senator Saslaw regarding his “Deliverance” comment:
I was mainly curious if your bigotry toward Virginia gun owners is only your own personal opinion, or was that statement made as Senate Majority Leader, and therefore the official position of Senate Democrats? I’m going to CC this to my Senator, Mr. Ralph Northam so he can respond in the event that he desires to depart from your stated opinion.
Yes, I’m aware that you have made a weak (and cowardly, in my opinion) contention that you “may” have been talking about another group. So I ask you: does it really matter WHICH group of constituents that you hold in such low esteem? Just the simple fact that you would refer to ANY of your constituents in such a disrespectful and dismissive manner indicates to me that you have a serious superiority complex.
I can only hope that the voters of the 35th district keep your opinion of unidentified sectors of your constituency in mind the next time you come up for re-election. I guess If they don’t, then they will continue to get the level of representation in the Senate that they deserve.
