Hey, Remember This? (Doug Mastriano Dressed As A Traitor)

Remember this?

The blog post contained this image:

Well, there's some pushback on St Sen (and now GOP cand. for PA Gov) Doug Mastriano's choice to dress like a 19th Century traitor.

From The Philadelphia Inquirer:

A group of nearly 60 veterans from Pennsylvania signed a letter deriding Republican candidate for governor Doug Mastriano for being photographed wearing a Confederate Army uniform, calling it “shameful” and saying it’s “an insult to those of us who served and those who continue to serve.”

The letter, released by the campaign of Democratic nominee Josh Shapiro, comes three weeks after a photo surfaced of Mastriano, a state senator and combat veteran, wearing the Civil War-era garb in a faculty photo from when he was a professor at the U.S. Army War College. The photo was from the 2013-14 academic year.

The prominent signatories of the letter are Democrats. They include Patrick J. Murphy, the former under secretary of the Army who served two terms in Congress representing Bucks County; U.S. Rep. Conor Lamb, a western Pennsylvania congressman who unsuccessfully ran in the Pennsylvania Senate primary this year; and state Rep. Jared Solomon (D., Philadelphia).


Mastriano has said that criticism of the photo is proof that Democrats “have nothing else to run on.”

Oh, but they do, Doug. They really do have lots of stuff to run on.

Like this:

That's you, right? In that yellow box? This was January 6 and at that point you've already walked past the police barricades.

You participated in Trump's attempted coup.

Then there's this:

Women will die because of your "pro-life" fetish.

Then there's your support of the Big Lie, your participation in the fake elector con.

Do I need to continue?

You took an oath to "support, obey and defend the Constitution" and you betrayed your oath by participating in Trump's coup. 

So dressing like a traitor isn't that odd for you.
