Sadly, the title of this piece is not hyperbole.
Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA) is a proud supporter of the Palestinian Authority, who has joined with/sided with Hamas who are the Palestinian wing of the Muslim Brotherhood.
“When there are voices calling for the defunding of the Palestinian Authority, I oppose them, publicly. In fact I signed a letter signed by Congressman David Price of North Carolina, also signed by Jim (Moran D-VA), that said we are not going to defund the Palestinian Authority. That would guarantee an explosion in an already volatile situation. When there was a motion to close the Palestinian Authority office here in Washington or let it just be in New York, I opposed it and said it would be a terrible blow to diplomacy and not in U.S. interest let alone Palestine’s interest.”
Shocking new audio from a speech last week from Gerry Connolly.
“When there are voices calling for the defunding of the Palestinian Authority, I oppose them, publically,” Connolly said, later referring to the Palestinian Authority (PA) as just “Palestine.” Calls came to defund the PA after Hamas—designated a “terrorist group” by the United States and much of the Western world—officially joined the PA’s unity government. With the United States still sending funding to the PA, our government is now directly funding a terrorist group and their attacks on Israel.
At this same speech, Connolly called a large group of Virginians “bigots” for having concerns over potential terror activity in Northern Virginia. Connolly also spoke in defense of deposed Egypt dictator Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, saying, “I was the only member of the Foreign Affairs Committee who spoke out against the Egyptian military after the coup, because they overthrew a democratically elected government, whether we like it or not… that government did not mow down thousands in Cairo and Alexandria.”
Connolly was the only member of the Foreign Affairs Committee who opposed Morsi’s removal—despite Morsi granting himself unlimited powers, censoring and prosecuting the media, and attacking nonviolent protestors.
Connolly’s Republican opponent in the 2104 midterm, Suzannee Scholte, released a statement earlier this week saying, “We also need to destroy terrorists not fund them.”
“Sending money to Hamas is reckless and hurts Israel, our closest ally in the Middle East – while destabilizing the entire region by legitimizing a terrorist group with U.S.dollars.”
In an interview with Watchdog.org she added, “Since being elected to Congress, Gerry Connolly has become more and more out of touch with his constituents while becoming more and more radical in his positions. It is the reason he stopped having town hall meetings years ago as his extremist views on foreign policy are completely at odds with Northern Virginia, one of the most educated and diverse areas in the nation.”
With men like Gerry Connolly in our legislature it’s any wonder that we actually accomplish anything positive in this world. He is so blinded by liberal ideology that he supports funneling millions of dollars to terrorist organizations whose actions he claims to detest in some misguided effort to support “democracy.” Ironically enough, his efforts to support democracy instead do just the opposite – his votes work to prop up Islamofascist demagogues bent on total control of their populations. Way to go, Gerry.
Hopefully the people of Virginia’s 11th District hear our pleas and put this guy out to pasture in November. Here’s hoping.
