We need to defeat the current Dist. 11 Representative "Jihad" Gerry Connolly next Tuesday.
Connolly is facing a challenge from Republican Chris Perkins, a former Green Beret in next week's election. The Congressman attacked Perkins military service (LVTSG, via Gateway Pundit).
Virginia Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-11) shocked constituents by suggesting that military Veterans are unqualified to serve in Congress because their deployments prevent them from putting “sweat equity” into the districts they hope to serve in Congress.
Congressman Connolly is running against Colonel Chris Perkins, a retired officer who served most of his more than 24 years in uniform as an Army Green Beret deployed overseas. Connolly has repeatedly suggested that Perkins’ lack of local involvement because of his military career makes him unqualified to hold federal office.
In an October 22nd Washington Post interview, Connolly “dismisses Perkins as unqualified” for Congress, despite Colonel Perkins’ many leadership assignments that included command of a Special Forces Battalion of over six-hundred men, and numerous combat deployments.
While speaking to a local Chamber of Commerce a few weeks earlier, Connolly asked the audience, “Where has my opponent been” while Connolly served in local government for 16 years.
Days later at a neighborhood civic association, Congressman Connolly subsequently pressed his line of attack dismissing Colonel Perkins’ extensive military experience saying, “I expect a [Congressional] candidate to have demonstrated some sweat-equity” on local issues, ignoring the 24 years Colonel Perkins served as an Army Green Beret.Perkin's response:
Connolly is following the same disgraceful attack lines used by fellow military-bashing Democrat Jim Moron back in 2010.
Personally, I think a Green Beret has more sense than a liberal clown who not only ran Fairfax County into the ground financially, but used his positions of public trust to act as a tool for radical Islamists, hence the nickname "Jihad Gerry."
When he was Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, Connolly vocally defended the Islamic Saudi Academy during their lease renewal hearing in 2008 when they were in the news for extremist material in their textbooks, as well as links to Islamofascist terrorism. In the process, "Jihad Gerry" attacked good people like Andrea Lafferty of the Traditional Values Coalition, her husband Jim Lafferty, and others as "slanderous bigots" while defending the madrassa as "diversity." (video below from Black Velvet Bruce Li).
It was during his run for Congress in 2008 that it was revealed Connolly had received support and contributions from radical Islamists. Connolly, along with former part-time VA Governor/DNC chair (now US Senate candidate) Tim Kaine, Moran and other Democrats were invited guests at a fundraiser in 2010 for the radical Dar-al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, VA, where two 9/11 hijackers and the Ft. Hood Jihadist attended the sermons of deceased radical Imam Anwar Al Alwaki. Kaine, Moron and others back out, but Connolly did not give word if he did attend or not.
During his first term, "Jihad Gerry" showed more of his outrage towards those who wear the uniform by wanting photos released of alleged "torture and abuse" of jihadis by US military interrogators. But despite all his defense of Islamists, "Jihad Gerry" doesn't believe in religious freedom, especially when it comes to matters of conscience with birth control and the liberal blood sacrament of abortion.
But despite all his concern for women's rights, Connolly's staff has contempt for conservative women, allegedly pushing one blogger back in 2009 during the run up to ramming Obamacare down our throats. Of course, Connolly is in lockstep with the extreme, left-wing agenda of Nancy Pelosi and Richard Milhous Obama. He has openly stated he is "proud of have been a part" of Obama's radical agenda that has destroyed prosperity in America. All the while, he openly lies about GOP VP Candidate Paul Ryan's plan to fiscal sanity.
Some are more equal than others, especially if you're a liberal Congressman. BVBL wrote in 2010 of how Connolly had snow from a blizzard on his street cleared for him to get to Congress while others, well, weren't so fortunate.
I could go on and mention Connolly being videotaped for advocating voter supression in selecting his replacement, Sharon Bulova, as Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chair in 2009.
It's time for us who are or are soon to be in District 11 to retire "Jihad" Gerry Connolly and replace him with a patriot who has served this nation with honor.
