Democrat Terie Norelli Brings Civility To the New Hampshire House?

by Steve MacDonald

Get a load of this. It is part of a quote from an elected member of the New Hampshire House.

“What we can do is make the environment here so unwelcoming that some will choose not to come, and some may actually leave.  One way is to pass measures that will restrict freedoms that they think they will find here.”

Can you imagine any person in elected office saying something like this and not being run out of office by their party leadership? The person speaking is talking about using the legislature’s police powers to intentionally drive people away from New Hampshire or out of New Hampshire. They are suggesting we use the government to restrict people’s freedom, on purpose.

Would it matter more or less if the speaker was talking about limiting the freedom of homosexuals? How about blacks or other minorities? What if they wanted to run off immigrants? How about scaring off the mentally ill or handicapped, or senior citizens? Honestly, does it matter?  What class of law abiding citizens deserves to have their freedoms restricted because some elected official doesn’t agree with them, who they are, or what they believe?

Does it matter that to the best of my knowledge Democrat House Speaker Terie Norelli has not done a damn thing about it?

Wait.  This was not a Republican I’m quoting.  It was New Hampshire House Democrat Cynthia Chase (D- Cheshire 8).

If a Republican had said this,

“What we can do is make the environment here so unwelcoming that some will choose not to come, and some may actually leave.  One way is to pass measures that will restrict freedoms that they think they will find here.”

…that would be a different story. But it was a Democrat.

I guess Democrats don’t have to be civil; they just have to claim their opponents are not, even when her statement is directed at people Cynthia Chase views as opponents.  She’s talking about members of the Free State Project.

But that shouldn’t matter, should it?  It should not matter because some Free Staters are women, or minorities, or gay.  Some are senior citizens, and there may even be a few who have handicaps?   But Cynthia Chase doesn’t care.  She thinks we should use legislative authority to restrict their freedoms and drive them away.  Sounds more like tyranny than civility.

So why is she still in office?
