FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 30, 2018

 

McCann needs to decide where he stands on MSM's condemnation of  conservatives like Littell-McHose, Garrett, Doherty, and Trump.

A shamefully obsequious John McCann knelt before the Main Stream Media today to praise their hit piece on conservative Republican Steve Lonegan.  In an editorial yesterday, the Star-Ledger's duo of Tom Moran and Julie O'Connor delivered an attack on Lonegan that revealed their base contempt for all conservatives.

The Star-Ledger accused Lonegan of being "anti-gay" and, as proof, offered Lonegan's  support of traditional moral values, his opposition to same-sex marriage, and the fact that he is Pro-Life on the question of abortion.  Evidently, John McCann is none of these.

If John McCann was any kind of Republican -- leave aside conservative -- he would be standing with his opponent in the June 5th  Republican primary and McCann would be loudly defending Lonegan against the same people who trash President Donald Trump on an almost daily basis. Attacks from people like Moran and O'Connor should remind us who we are, of our commonality, and unite us in opposition to the liberal establishment that they are paid to represent.

McCann should know that the same Star-Ledger duo trashed the daughter of his campaign co-chair, Virginia Littell, and the boss of his other co-chair, Ron Petit.  So 100 percent of the leadership of the McCann campaign has been attacked by the same Star-Ledger duo that attacked Steve Lonegan. 

The Star-Ledger -- in particular this duo --  have viciously attacked President Trump, throwing every accusation in the book at him -- from racist to homophobe to sexual predator.  So how can someone like McCann, who claims to support President Trump, praise them for their serial attacks on Republicans?

Is it because John McCann is simply a Democrat shill -- as many have suggested -- who will go back to holding a Democrat patronage job once the election is over?  Or is it because he is a genuinely clueless and soulless human being?  Either way, it is time for John McCann to tell us one whose side he is on:  Does he stand with his own campaign co-chairs, with other good Republicans, and with President Trump?  Or does he want to make new friends in the Main Stream Media -- far-left, establishment liberals?

Your move, John McCann.
