Lies the Maryland Democratic Party Says
The above is the screen capture of this tweet from the Maryland Democratic Party Veterans Leadership Council, which is an official arm of the Maryland Democratic Party.
Of course the problem is that it’s totally fabricated.
The actual quote that Governor Hogan said, as reported by Bryan Sears of the Daily Record is:
“I support what’s going on in South Carolina with the removal of the flag from there…….We don’t fly the flag above the State House here in Annapolis so that’s not an issue. Some of this other stuff, to me, has really gone too far. It’s political correctness run amok. Where do we draw the line?””
Hey, maybe these guys should start with themselves…..
I get that Democrats have been with Governor Hogan and his stance, because Democrats want to rewrite history. But that’s exactly why Governor Hogan has a problem with what’s going on:
Hogan said he’s concerned about attempts to erase or re-write history.

“It’s starting to get to the point where it’s gone too far,” Hogan said. “We can’t pretend as if there wasn’t a Civil War and we’re going to remove every Civil War person from our history books.”
But that’s no excuse for the Maryland Democratic Party to lie about what the Governor said, particularly trying to hide behind the account of their Veterans Caucus. Why do Democrats want to dishonor the reputation of the many Democratic veterans who honorably served by associating their caucus with this nonsense?
The Maryland Democratic Party owes Governor Hogan a public apology. We know he won’t get one, but it’s the right thing to do.
UPDATE: The Maryland Democratic Party doesn’t have the courtesy to apologize to the Governor, but they did quietly spike the tweet. Which is why we save screen caps, kids.
