The Governor beat around the bush a bit, but Kevin persisted. His Excellency finally said:
" . . . I don't know about MassResistance. If they have an attitude, then the chances are I'm not going to meet with them. But if they want to bring a view forward -- and people have and do -- then I'll meet with them. Sure."
Us? Have an attitude? MassResistance pleads: Guilty as charged.
Nevertheless, the next day we submitted a formal request to the Governor's staff
for a meeting. We're willing to be reasonable!
Actually, if you listen to what the Governor says, it sounds like he has never even heard of MassResistance. Go here to see the video.
I also wish I could be there when Governor Patrick finds out that MassResistance is named a Hate Group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. I know I already emailed the Governor's office.
BTW, MassResistance also makes it easier to email the Massachusetts Senate to tell them that MassResistance is a recognized hate group. You can get their email addresses here from MassResistance's website.
