Letter: Appalled by letter about Peninsula Patriots’ meeting
This letter is in response to the very hateful sounding letter of Ms. Montague ("Rabble Rousing…of the Worst Sort," Readers Write, Oct. 28, 2010). I am also appalled, but the thing that is appalling is that someone would read an article that is based on someone else’s opinion of a meeting, and then form an opinion. The name of this group is the Peninsula Patriots not the "so-called" Peninsula Patriots. It was formed locally by people who love their country. People who want this nation to continue to thrive, based on the principles that made this nation great. Things like our constitution, equality for all people, capitalism, self-reliance, personal responsibility and a strong national defense.
Her letter states that nowhere is Bishop Jackson recorded as offering constructive, realistic suggestions, sorry but she is wrong again. Just as she did not care enough to attend the meeting personally, she apparently did not care enough to go to Bishop Jackson’s website before she blasted him. This man loves God and loves his country and is committed to unifying Americans and taking a stand for what is still "One Nation Under God."
The thing that seemed to anger her the most was the fact that a group of people were able to meet in Gloucester, and disagree with her views. We are still free, we have the right to assemble and discuss the things that we like and dislike about the direction of our leadership. Since she stated that she doesn’t want this type of thing ("freedom of speech") in the community, she may be in the wrong community, or even the wrong country. Try Cuba!
