A letterbox with the inscription Letter to the editor

What is wrong with Rep. Rob Wittman?  In recent weeks, Wittman has blanketed our airwaves and stuffed our mailboxes with dangerous, deceptive, dog-whistle ads.  Because Wittman is terrified of losing his job -- and has absolutely no accomplishments to campaign on-- he has taken a page out of Trump’s playbook and is spreading vicious lies about his opponent, Qasim Rashid.

Rashid is an American Muslim, a loving husband and father, and an immigrant.  He is the American story. He immigrated to the United States as a child with hopes and dreams for a better life. 

Rashid worked hard and graduated from the prestigious University of Richmond School of Law and became a civil rights attorney. He has worked with the U.S. government to improve national security here at home and also worked to protect the rights of those persecuted for their religion around the world, including protecting the rights of Christians in nations likes Pakistan and Iran.  

Wittman’s antics are shocking but not surprising because he never condemned Trump’s Muslim ban or his neo-Nazi praise. Spreading false information, engaging in misleading character assassination, and attacking a political opponent for his faith are shameful and beneath the office Wittman holds. 

As a Trump-Republican, Wittman has lost his way. He is not showing wisdom and forethought in his decision-making. His behavior is no longer consistent with the Virginia family values we hold dear. We must reject Wittman’s radical, race-baiting, cowardly behavior. Wittman has failed us, and we must vote him out.

Vote Wittman beware of these kind of negative stereotypes that some love to toss out, as soon as I see the phrase DOG WHISTLE I am positive the story is full of manure, probably from fido.

Mg, it's not the STORY that's full of manure, it's Wittman's COMMENTS. He is a walking, talking negative stereotype.🤣

cultured2014

amazing when whittman rolls out rashid's own tweets and he's called a racist for it. only in america

Grammy1357

Welp, cultured2014, I've got a hot news flash for you: Whitman IS a racist. This would explain why people call him racist.😝

[tongue_smile]I'm sorry to see such blatant propaganda in the Times. I guess you have to publish everything, no matter how misleading, or just plain false.

Grammy1357

Jack, everything the letter writer said is absolutely true. Which facts, exactly, do you object to?🙂

Wittman literally used Rashid’s own tweets.

Literally. His own tweets.

Shame on the Prince William Times for publishing this garbage.

Drronchapman, shame on Rob Wittman for SPEWING garbage so that people have to write letters to newspapers pointing out that he should be ashamed. 😠

cultured2014

Rashid has done zero

Grammy1357

cultured2014, you mean aside from his political activism that promotes peace and his authoring three books on how the power of dialogue can overcome racism, xenophobia, intolerance, and violence and the importance of meaningful and moral conversation between people of all faiths, ages, genders, in order to facilitate better understanding and tolerance and promote a more peaceful society?

What have YOU been doing besides writing hateful comments and denying true statements?

Mg

Did he write one on how their wonderful religious leader was a murderer and a pedophile too?
