Can ya take a minute to ring up the Governor?

It’s a time for a full scale Yokel call to action folks! Our governor, Larry Hogan, was decidedly anti-Trump throughout this whole campaign season. Even to the point that our own Billy Shreve was trying to shame the governor into throwing his support behind the Orange Menace. Well now that we are here and there’s been one horrible appointment after another, this is what the Baltimore Sun reports that our brave leader advises the residents of Maryland to do:

Gov. Larry Hogan, offering rare public comments about the election of Republican Donald J. Trump, said Monday that “everyone ought to take a deep breath.”

sometimes-you-just-have-to-close-your-eyes-count-to-ten-take-a-deep-breath-remind-yourself-that-you-wouldn-t-look-good-in-prison-stripes-and-just-smile-at-that-2

We don’t know about you, but a deep breath was necessary after reading that! Guess what Guv?We are not going to take a deep breath when the proprietor of a hate filled, misogynistic website is named the President’s Chief Strategist! We will not take a deep breath when a man who called the 1965 Civil Rights Act a piece of “intrusive legislation” is tapped to lead the Justice Department!  And we certainly will not take a deep breath as the worst of the worst around us spews hate at our fellow human beings.

Our State Attorney General has opened a hotline for Marylanders to report any hate crimes. In his statement on this issue Attorney General Frosh wrote:

“Over the last week, reports of hate incidents directed at racial and ethnic minorities, Muslims, Jews, women, immigrants, and the LGBT community have increased. Sadly, Maryland is not immune to this outbreak, and it is important to remember that our laws prohibit this kind of conduct and provide protection from it”.

And don’t think we’ve been immune to it here in Frederick. Two recent FNP stories have shown otherwise.

We think the governor needs to be made aware how insulting and condescending his just take a “deep breath” comment is. If you agree please take a minute and give his office a call at 410-974-3901. Or if email is your preferred method of contact this link will take you to a contact form. Let the governor know that we here in Maryland will not tolerate him telling us to “take a deep breath”.

Smuckers demands action!

  1. In the past 4-5 days I’ve called 4 times. The first time the office was still closed so I left a message, and the other three times I spoke with someone (two different women, I believe). The first time I got a human on the other end, she read me a statement that she said had been put together the night before and would be going public “soon;” to the best of my knowledge, it hasn’t, because I’ve looked for it actively.

    So yes, please call. The more the merrier. 🙂

  2. It’s akin to what a friend said to me about the election and the appointments. “Think positive,” she said.

    Hey, I lived in Alabama for 18 years and learned all about “the Keebler elf.” No, I can’t think positive about what is happening.
