"When all those gun nuts and
religious nuts from Spokane, Yakima and Moses Lake pile off those buses, we
will win in Edmonds and Lynnwood for sure. ... If I had your typical Republican
activist from Spokane or Vancouver showing up on my doorstep, that would be
pretty scary. They're probably packing heat or the Bible." Quote from WA
State Democratic Party Chairman Paul Berendt, found at http://www.keepandbeararms.com/news/kabanews/display_day_archive.asp?d=11%2F13%2F2001
[A Newslinks reference, taken from Paul
Berendt's remarks divisive]
Being a gun owner, a conservative
and a faithful Catholic from Spokane, I wonder if Mr. Berendt still has his
job, and, if he does, why? I know exactly what would happen if the chair of
the state Republican Party had made similar comments about "fill in the
blank with an insulting stereotype about Democratic Party constituents"
- - you wouldn't rest until they were ridden out of the state on a rail.
Although I consider myself a Republican,
I have voted for Democratic Party candidates in the past on the rare occasion
when I felt they were better qualified for the position. So long as this individual
holds any position of authority within your organization, I can guarantee you
it will not happen in the future.
Very truly yours,
