Virginia Delegate: Americans Not Bigots just because we don't vote Democrat
Virginia GOP Del. Nick Freitas blasted Democrats for routinely labeling Americans opposed to their radical agenda as bigots during a speech on Wednesday, noting how he and his constituents "have had it" with such denigrating smears.
"I've never gone on this floor and challenged the faith of an elected official because I disagreed with them on policy," he said while speaking on the floor of the House of Delegates. "I've never gone on this floor, Mr. Speaker, and suggested that the other side of the aisle were racists & I've never suggested they were sexist because they didn't agree with my particular policy positions. But I'm keeping a running tally so far of this session. & Almost every day, someone on the other side of the aisle either gets up and either subtly, or comes right out and suggests, that if you don't agree with them on policy, then you're not a Christian, you're a sexist, you're a bigot, you're a racist.".............
"But if you're going to question the faith of the intentions of anybody that happens to disagree with you on policy, then you don't get to lecture us on compassion, tolerance, or an open debate," he added.
