The Washington Post’s Editorial Mr. Cuccinelli’s Bigotry exposes, not Senator Cuccinelli’s bigotry, but the Washington Post editorial writer’s own bigotry. And contempt. The proper way to address a Senator is, well, Senator.
To attack and ridicule a person for their religious beliefs is bigotry. The Editorial staff at the Post will never endorse or accept a candidate that believes in God and acts in accordance with his faith.
This editorial is proof that the Washington Post’s anti religious bias extends to all people of faith that find morality an important component of their lives.
Muslims also believe homosexuality is wrong. If Cuccinelli were part of the Islamic Community and held these same convictions one would assume that the Post writers would also find their faith based beliefs “extremist”.
It would appear that the Post’s ignorant bigotry is especially aroused by Catholics.
The relentless attack on Bob McDonnell’s thesis from 20 years ago is but another example of this anti-religious bias and bigotry that has infected the Washington Post.
From the Editorial:
As a lawmaker in Richmond, he has displayed contempt for non-English speakers; for those who care about global warming; and for the First Amendment.
Cuccinelli’s Italian heritage may be why he has contempt for non-English speakers, right? None of his ancestors are non-English speaking. Perhaps his maternal Irish genes make him a bigot.
And Global Warming? Get real. Most of us have seen the truth and understand that Global Warming is a hoax. If all man-made CO2 were stopped world-wide, it would take 33 years to drop the temperature 1 degree Fahrenheit. The minuscule amount that “Warmers” want to spend trillions of dollars and lose millions of dollars on would have absolutely no effect except to expand government control over our lives and line the pockets of evil capitalists like Al Gore.
Perhaps the Post’s fear of Cuccinelli on First Amendment issues has more to do with their desire to continue spewing their anti-religious bigotry and hatred. You have more to fear from the recently passed Hate Crime legislation than from Cuccinelli.
The Post also says:
Many of his fellow Republicans regard him as occupying the far-right fringe of the party, the ultimate small tenter.
Perhaps you misunderstand the new location of the Republican tent. Most realize the left wing fringe is the radical portion of the party. Take a look at the NY-23 race to see where the Republican tent is presently moving to. Cuccinelli is right in the center. Left leaning Republicans with the watered down Conservative message are proven losers. While it is obviously your mission to pull the Republican Party to the left, the motion of the party and the country is decidedly to the right.
The more immediate concern is this: If he is elected attorney general, Mr. Cuccinelli would drive away qualified lawyers from an office that functions as the state government’s law firm, and, given his bizarre ideas, he would very likely become an embarrassment for the commonwealth.
If these “qualified lawyers” suffer any discrimination working for Attorney General Cuccinelli, are you so ignorant that you believe a “qualified lawyer” is not competent enough to bring a discrimination lawsuit against Cuccinelli? If so, then they are not very qualified, are they?
And the only “embarrassment” Virginian’s are likely to suffer over the next four years is from an out of state Newspaper with an anti-religious bias for Muslims and Catholics.
Perhaps if you hired a few Virginian’s to write for your editorial staff your viewpoint would have more validity. As it is, not a single editorial writer lives in Virginia or pays taxes in Virginia.
You are all outsiders spewing your bigotry and hatred across the boarder. While your endorsements were unarguably effective with Democrats in the primary, they are not meaningful to Virginians in a general election.
And remember, after the expected major losses in Virginia, Democrats will be looking to blame someone. Anyone but President Obama (the real reason for the landslide).
Your primary endorsement of Creigh Deeds was no doubt the reason the voters nominated him.
You will be in the Democratic cross-hairs. Your bigotry is directly responsible for your continued marginalization and status as the radical left wing mouthpiece of the Democratic Party.
