Letter: Ellie Lockwood, Ashburn

Editor: Last year the commonwealth elected the most diverse trio to ever lead Virginia. Not much was made of their diversity because they were all extremely qualified candidates, and its long past time to begin to judge people on the content of their character, not the color of their skin.

However, it was not long before the racist, hypocritical left began referring to Attorney General Miyares as “little Fidel” because he is a first-generation Cuban. One can only imagine what racist witticisms they will employ when trying to denigrate VA-10 Republican candidate Hung Cao.

Will they find it amusing that a Viet Nam immigrant, like so many of the recent immigrants in Loudoun County, loves and appreciates all the values and opportunities offered to them in the United States, and are determined to preserve and fight for these values? In Cao’s case, those opportunities included graduating with the first class of Thomas Jefferson High School of Science & Technology before attending the U.S. Naval Academy and establishing an outstanding career as a much decorated naval officer.

What negative stigmatizing label will they apply to his home-schooling family? Something that makes perfect common sense for a family of five children that has moved 12 times in the service of their country and he is, understandably concerned about the erosion of excellence and the apparent discrimination of Asians at his old, beloved, high school. 

We know we can expect screeds of “labels” from the comedians on the left, but it will be interesting to see the attempts to smear this decorated veteran while working to hide the racist hyperbole they generally apply.

There are two sides to many issues. We all know where Rep. Wexton stands because her 100% Nancy Pelosi voting record over four years has brought us unprecedented high prices for gasoline and groceries that continue to escalate daily, and while she has been very vocal in her support for transgenders, she was uncommonly silent when a Virginia Tech swimmer was cheated out of her rightful place on the podium and when a skirt wearing boy sexually assaulted a girl in a girls’ bathroom in a Loudoun County high school

On her first day in office, Wexton removed a flag honoring POW/MIA victims who sacrificed their all for this country, and replaced it with the Rainbow flag. That was an insult to all military members and every veteran that I hope Hung Cao will rectify on HIS first day in office.

    Wow. So, until today, I haven’t heard of anyone calling Attorney General Miyares “little Fidel”. Sure you didn’t just make that up?

    COVID and it’s resultant supply chain issues and a war between Russia and Ukraine (Remember Trump being impeached for trying to blackmail Ukraine when they asked for help to fight the Russians?) have caused much of the turmoil in the economy. Maybe you can explain exactly which Pelosi policies caused it, though?

    And no – the girl in the school was not assaulted by a “boy in a dress”. She was assaulted by a boy she’d previously had sex with. But hey, a couple of deputies have turned out to be trouble. One appeared to be grooming young girls, and another was convicted elsewhere. And threats against school board members were so severe that one wrote her resignation letter in the middle of the night when police protection was removed. The sheriffs department has refused to investigate these threats and has worked with partisan organizations to attack democrats on the board.

    As a side note, Loudoun County Republican Party has turned out to be very silent on the mass murder of 19 school kids. What’s the plan now? More guns, fewer doors? Might as well paint the floors red, so kids won’t be upset when their friends are bleeding out next to them.

    I have not heard a single person attack Cao’s homeschooling. It looks to me like these are fabricated claims that allow you to criticize liberals for things they never did. Gee, what’s another word for not telling the truth? Oh, I know – lying.

    It’s wonderful that Hung Cao bravely served his country in the military. But with all due respect, the gentleman sees goblins that simply don’t exist. Nobody in Loudoun is trying to groom children, teach them CRT & turn them into communists. Thankfully, Rep. Jennifer Wexton doesn’t live in a haunted house full of goblins. She has my full support for another term of office. Welcome to June Loudoun!

    Wait…What? Fidel Castro is a democrat party hero: Bungled command controlled economy, check! Secret repressive police to round up anyone who disagrees with the police state, check! A healthcare system that only caters to the rich and connected, check! Limited food supplies with regular folks prohibited from eating beef, check! No freedom of speech, check! Restricted and censored access to the internet, check! Tow tier system of justice and equality, with the powerful on top, and everyone else a slave of the state, check! Political prisoners is the norm, check! Hero worship to mass murderers, check! One party rule, check! Everything sucks, except for those in charge, check!

    Everything the modern democrat party hopes and is working for. Why would they call the AG “little Fidel?” I don’t get it.

    Ellie lives in fantasy land. Let’s review:

    1) She erects a strawman, alleging without evidence that “the hypocritical left” called the AG “Little Fidel.” I have no idea whether or not that happened, nor do I particularly care, but I *do* know that the AG has acted like an authoritarian and is not above criticism. It also seems obvious to Ellie that the “hypocrisy” in this allegation is self-evident. I’m not seeing it?

    2) The strawman argument causes her to then forecast — again, with no evidence — that the “hypocritical left” will obviously then make racist comments about the Republican nominee for the 13th. This seems like an odd claim considering Ellie cannot even correctly spell Mr. Cao’s homeland (it’s “Vietnam” not “Viet Nam.” This liberal is actually pretty impressed with Mr. Cao’s credentials, and is actually pleased he demolished that Brandon Michon clown, who, frankly, seems like he’s more Ellie’s speed.

    3) I’m also good with Ms. Wexton. But I do love how Ellie shoehorns in gas prices and doubles down on her disgusting hatred of transgender people. I certainly hope Ellie doesn’t consider herself a Christian, because it’s pretty clear she’s destined for Hell after she dies.

    4) Her fixation about the POW/MIA flag is just bizarre. The fact that she spent 3 years in a rage about that is … weird.

    Anyway, from what I can tell the 13th will be well represented by either Ms. Wexton or Mr. Cao — both seem like serious, competent people. Let’s hope we can have a serious election based on the issues rather than the idiocies of people like Ellie. They’ve done far too much harm to Loudoun already.

      And this Classical Liberal knows the country can be spelled both ways. Since we’re playing the smug spelling teacher today Big Daddy, you should know we live in the 10th congressional district. There is no 13th.

      Normally I’d understand, but you repeated yourself twice on the error. Deriding somebody’s debatable spelling while completely failing yourself is never a good look.

    How about we exchange partisan talking points (B.S. mostly) and replace them with actual federal problems that have or have not been honestly and competently addressed: 1. The withdrawal from Afghanistan was a national embarrassment but it seems similar inconsistent policy is being pushed in both Ukraine and Taiwan with no comment of input from our representative. 2. The interstate commerce issue affecting the insane traffic congestion Loudouners suffer EVERYDAY with the Route 15 north of Leesburg issue still hasn’t even had a federal meeting with Maryland and Virginia traffic planning folks. Can anyone see why that is a sign of lethargy or worse? 3 The USA HAS A WORSENING border problem which our representative has had nothing to say and frankly even the few words about the Uighurs has had no bite. These are national and global embarrassments. 4 Do I need to mention inflation as even the Costco is pushing $4.46/gallon regular gas and we blame Russia???? Mr. Cao is going to have to add a lot more federal issues to his presentation or else fail in my opinion but it is his opportunity to succeed if he makes an effort to go beyond Partisan BS. 🙂

    Wexton is going to lose! The Democrat Party can come out with anything they want because their policies are so pathetically bad that they are going to be annihilated in November. And I am going to be a fool at Hung Cao’s victory party dancing on the Democrat Party’s grave.

    Jennifer Wexton is an extreme left wing ideologue who votes with Nancy Pelosi 100% of the time.

    Democratic policies demanded by Pelosi and Wexton have DIRECTLY RESULTED in soaring inflation (with no end in sight), out of control crime, the “defund the police” movement, a massive humanitarian crisis at the Southern Border (which Democrats deny), national embarrassment of the Loudoun County Public School System, unfounded COVID hysteria, a breakdown of our foreign policy (remember the Afghanistan surrender fiasco?) trillions in wasteful spending (thank goodness for Joe Manchin – a moderate Democrat) , $54 billion in cash to Ukraine with no accountability and a complete denial of any responsibility for any of these results.

    If Wexton’s record isn’t disqualifying for another term in Congress, I don’t know what is. How could it possibly be worse? I don’t know Mr. Cao. He seems to love America. I cannot say the same for Wexton. I’m willing to vote for Cao and send him my campaign contribution. What do you have to lose at this point?
