"Prissy Attacks on Citizens of Maryland..."

Help Save Maryland Action Alert

Look who is back for another round of prissy attacks on the good citizens of Maryland. With the assistance of the Gazette Newspaper, owned by the Washington Post, it's Prince George's County's junior state delegate Ben Barnes (D-Dist 21).

Barnes is a Nancy Pelosi style, San Francisco liberal who denounces anyone who disagrees with his anti-citizen, pro-illegal alien agenda. After recently attacking the African-American group People for Change in Prince George's County, Barnes now points his hate attack at the multi-ethnic citizens of Help Save Maryland and, amazingly, ALL participants in the historic 9-12 Taxpayer March on Washington!
Looks like another bee has gotten into in Ben's stylish bonnet.

Contact Delegate Barnes and let him know that his anti-citizen, hate agenda must end.

Let's not let Barnes get away with his lies and misinformation.

Taking on Help Save Maryland

I wrote a letter to the editor of my local paper this summer taking on an anti-immigrant group, Help Save Maryland, for its message of intolerance. On its Web site, the group has created a fictional bad guy by the name of "Jose Illegal" and [its members] have pronounced themselves proud participants in one of the now infamous tea parties where we saw such disturbing, disgusting and racially charged images as our president portrayed violently as the Joker from the latest Batman.

One woman affiliated with the group (and listed on its website) even went so far as to come to Annapolis and hand out a flier with a sombrero superimposed upon the head of the chairman of the Judiciary Committee. I believed (and still believe) that as a public official I had an obligation to speak out against such ugly and blatant racially-motivated stereotyping. This type of divisive and offensive rhetoric has no place in our rich diverse community and has been used by the right wing for far too long. Now this group has attacked me by lying about my record on education.

Well, I want to set the record straight on this because nothing could be further from the truth. I am a strong supporter of teachers and education and was proud to receive the endorsement of the Maryland State Teachers Association during my last campaign. In fact, I received an "A" rating from [the teachers association] just this summer. I don't mind having an honest debate on the issues with these extremists, but I just wish that they would stick to the truth. The right wing has had a rough time doing this in the past (see for example their attacks on President Obama and his health care plan). Perhaps it is the truth that they are afraid of.
