Healey is a radical leftist who will ruin Massachusetts
By Jeffrey T. Kuhner
Massachusetts is on the brink. If Attorney General Maura Healey wins on Nov. 8 and becomes the next governor, the Bay State will become California—a dysfunctional, progressive Third World hellhole.
Think I’m exaggerating? Healey champions the Green New Deal, the forcible transition from “fossils fuels”—oil, natural gas, coal—toward a net-zero, carbon-free economy based on “renewable” energy sources, primarily wind and solar power.
This is why she approves of soaring gas prices and electricity rate hikes of at least a whopping 64 percent that kicked in Nov. 1. It’s also why she killed two natural gas pipelines as attorney general.
The goal: to drive up the cost of tanking up your vehicle or heating and powering your home to such an extent in order to force consumers to embrace wind turbines, solar panels and electric vehicles. In short, she backs Joe Biden’s war on domestic energy production.
The results have been sky-rocketing inflation and a massive decline in our standard of living. Middle- and working-class Massachusetts residents will be paying thousands of dollars more this winter simply to heat their homes and keep the power on. And under a Healey administration, energy and electricity costs will only continue to soar, eventually breaking the back of ordinary workers and taxpayers.
Moreover, she supports a radical left-wing social agenda. Healey is a cultural Marxist, the Bay State’s version of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The attorney general believes in granting driver’s licenses to illegal aliens, as well as turning Massachusetts into a full-fledged sanctuary state. Healey believes in defunding the police, disastrous soft-on-crime policies (like no-cash bail) and domestic terrorist groups, such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa. During the bloody 2020 summer riots, Healey—as the state’s attorney general—openly encouraged and embraced the mass arson and looting that took place in big cities, including Boston.
“Yes, America is burning. But that’s how forests grow,” she said.
Healey wants to impose transgender ideology and critical race theory on school kids as young as 8-years-old. She also supports books that promote gay and child pornography being introduced into classrooms and libraries in Middle School—directly targeting minors starting at the age of 12. And any efforts by parents to ban such filth from public schools Healey denounces as “censorship” and “book burning.”
She also champions Covid-19 vaccine mandates for school children from 6 months until 17-years-old. If Healey becomes governor, kids will be forced to take the jab or they will not be allowed to attend daycare, pre-K or K-12 public schools of any kind. In other words, she is an authoritarian leftist (and an LGBTQ fanatic), who seeks to override and abrogate basic parental rights, children’s rights and human rights.
If Healey wins, she will be the worst and most destructive governor in Massachusetts history—and that’s saying something.
There is only one man who stands in her way: Geoff Diehl. The Republican gubernatorial candidate is everything Healey isn’t.
Diehl is a common-sense conservative, who believes in low taxes, secure borders, energy independence, law and order, personal health care choice and parental rights in education. He rightly opposes the anti-growth Green energy agenda, transgender bathrooms, driver’s licenses for illegals, defunding the police, gay porn and anti-white racism being peddled in the classroom, woke indoctrination in public schools, vaccine mandates, and crippling tax increases (he’s a big “no” on the Question 1 ballot referendum, while Healey is a staunch “yes”).
In short, Diehl speaks for and represents Middle Massachusetts—taxpayers, parents, teachers, first responders, veterans—the largely forgotten middle- and working-class, decent, hard-working, law-abiding folks whom liberal elites, such as Healey and Biden, have abandoned and betrayed.
For the first time in a generation, voters in the Bay State have a real, clear choice: a conservative patriot versus a radical socialist.
Make no mistake. On Nov. 8, a huge Red wave is coming. The Republicans will sweep back to power in the U.S. House of Representatives, most likely retake the Senate, and they are poised to capture numerous governorships—including in deep blue states, such as New York, Oregon and Michigan.
The only question is whether Massachusetts will fall to this GOP tidal wave. The fact that Healey had to call in Vice President Kamala Harris to come to Boston and hold a rally with her just days before the election shows the Democrats are nervous. Forget the bogus polls. This race is tightening. Early voting has been light and low throughout Massachusetts, especially in Boston. That’s a bad sign for Healey. If independents, disaffected Democrats and Republicans turn out big for Diehl on Election Day, a massive upset is possible.
Scott Brown pulled off a Massachusetts miracle once before. Diehl may do it again. Vote!
