By now you have heard about the horrifying rape of a 14-year old student at Rockville High School in Montgomery County, Maryland. Two illegal immigrants, one 18 years of age and one 17, attacked the girl in a bathroom. Both alleged attackers were detained by immigration authorities but released prior to trial. Both made their way to Montgomery County, which has been a sanctuary county for illegal immigrants for quite some time.
Montgomery County Public School Superintendent Jack Smith has to date refused to do anything about public safety in Montgomery County schools, and originally refused to cooperate with the office of Governor Larry Hogan in sharing information about the alleged assault. Smith’s inaction on protecting students has created a sense of uncertainty in Montgomery County students. On Red Maryland Radio
last night we spoke with Ryan Gniadek, Chairman of the Montgomery County Teenage Republicans
. Gniadek spoke about the concern that he and his fellow students had about safety in their own schools in the wake of this incident and Dr. Smith’s inaction on the subject. Gniadek’s group has created a petition to demand Dr. Smith’s removal
The Democrats in the General Assembly passed this four days after the heinous attack in Rockville.
This is Democratic establishment who is far out of touch with reality.
A NO vote on Question 4 not only promotes the rule of law and the dignity of citizenship, it is a vote to restore balance and democracy to a state whose leaders have long ago abandoned the will of the people with impunity.
Nearly five years later, we see Maryland’s leftists continue to disrespect the rule of law and disrespect the will of the people of our state.
Fortunately, the citizens of Maryland stood up in 2014 and elected a Republican, Larry Hogan, as Governor. Governor Hogan is standing up for citizens and standing up for the rule of law by pledging to veto the Maryland Law Enforcement and Trust Act. He understands the importance of the respect for the rule of law, and to respect the impact this bill will have on the citizens of our state.
The lesson of all of this is the fact that Democrats will politicize anything to protect their core values. That they will do it despite its impact on public safety and immediately after a heinous and avoidable attack on a 14-year old girl is disheartening and disturbing.
