Letter: Ted Osoba, Leesburg

Editor: Northern Virginia, including Leesburg, has become largely irreligious and liberal over the years, so it is no surprise that the mayor and Town Council would try to pass some politically correct proclamations. 

            When a duly elected councilman wrote his objections on the proclamation, the liberal members and mayor attempted to bully him into apologizing or resigning. Is this the “inclusiveness” the left always brags about?

            Slavery and segregation were horrible situations for those affected by them and have put a scar on race relations in this country, and a war was fought over this and the civil rights laws have been passed to correct this situation. 

            The NAACP was a moral organization that vigorously and courageously represented blacks, helping them overcome immoral treatment. However, over the past few decades, they have become a sharp-tongue, race-baiting pressure group. We voted for the mayor and council, not the NAACP, to run Leesburg.

            Regarding the “pride” proclamation, the act of sodomy was proscribed by all major religious and the natural law for thousands of years. That didn’t mean LGBTQ individuals should be bullied or put to death. They are free to live their lives, but don’t deserve special treatment. What’s next? Straight Pride Day? Polygamy Pride Day?

            It is appalling to see a mayor and members of the council engage in bullying, smear tactics and to grovel before left-wing pressure groups. I hope the voters of Leesburg take note of these cowardly actors and in the next election the courageous and principled conduct of Mr. Dunn will be rewarded and perhaps people of courage will be nominated and elected.

    He was free to object and not sign – he childish actions were the target of criticism and he has to live with the consequences of his decision – no one is complaining that he opposed the resolutions (and don’t forget this happened multiple times) – he acted like a foolish child and now you are defending him? I don’t get how you can support him
