Gopal needs to end his silence on Sager and Nelson

Senator Vin Gopal has been silent about the radical anti-cop, pro-narcotics views expressed by Jeana Sager and Moira Nelson, Democrat candidates for Middletown Township Committee and Monmouth County freeholder.

We gave the senator a pass for his silence when his successor as Monmouth Democrat Chairman, David Brown, condemned Sager’s declaration that cops are criminals.  Gopal was on his honeymoon, a trade mission to India with the Murphys, when that story broke.  But the honeymoon is over now that Nelson has been exposed and Brown has remained silent.

In withdrawing Democrat support of Sager, Brown said,

The comments made Jeana Sager shouldn’t be said on camera or behind closed doors, because they are unequivocally wrong. Her false and demeaning assertions do not represent the values of the Monmouth County Democratic Party or the dozens of Democratic candidates trying to better their community across our county. Our Democratic candidates focus their campaigns on fiscal responsibility, supporting law enforcement in their protection of our communities and maintaining Monmouth County’s character and values.  Our Party will not stand for this disgraceful way of thinking, which is why we are refusing all resources to the Sager campaign and formally withdrawing the endorsement of the Monmouth County Democrats.  Let it be a clear message: The Monmouth County Democratic Party will not stand for this disgraceful behavior now or in the future.”

Does Gopal agree with Brown?  We certainly hope so.   But why has Nelson not been condemned for her “disgraceful” social media behavior?  Why is Gopal announced as a special guest at a campaign event featuring Nelson this afternoon if Freehold Township?

Do Gopal and Brown believe that Nelson’s views are consistent with the Party’s commitment to “maintaining Monmouth County’s character and values?”

    He’s basically in- charge of TF, several towns, and LD 11. Without a lot of money( yes, Brian, am helping,) work, luck, and GOTV, he only has to plan for 2020 and 2021 GOTV. This is what happens when we let guard down for a minute, and count on a few big towns- sorry- ugly, but true. We can still get some of it back if we keep pounding away, and wake more folks up- this, really, is the future of this county, at stake..

    What hack attempt at a smear. Anyone with half a brain who’s been paying attention to what’s been happening in this country and read something other than Fox News articles will realize Moira represents a growing left movement that will actually stand for ALL working people. Keep striving to write better content than the Breitbart comments section, Art!

    you angry libs ( who always resort to name- calling,) can’t recognize an actual compliment when you see one: that was a warning to the GOP, that Vin is everywhere,working to get his people elected, at all levels.. it’s a warning, and you might think of what is being referred to: that,” if you look at what’s happening in this country,” many liberal enclaves have either gone bust financially, and/ or, allowed criminals and homelessness problems sit, fester, and get worse. Those who move out of such places, to a place like this county, to be rid of lib- run disasters, but then vote the way they did before in those places, is a threat to we who work hard to keep this “ the place you want to be!”

  4. The place said at 10:29 am on October 7th, 2019:

    who wants to be? Most people who are from and/or work in Monmouth County find it far more affordable to move to Ocean, Burlington, etc. The horse has been out of the barn, Monmouth has been basically a North Jersey county for many years now. I moved my family out a long time ago and saved a ton of money.

    Are you “stuck on stupid” honey?

    How is it a smear when Nelson actually said these things? Miora represents the vile hate of the left. And if you want to attack Breitbart, you better come with FACTS to dispute the reality of hate contained in this article


    Oh, one more thing. You just proved why it’s impossible to have an honest debate with a liberal. You used one of the tools in this article #6 to be exact


    So, please spare us your false indignation, or does “Hate Hath No Home Here,” NOT apply to liberals and their words?

    are fantastic safe spaces.

  7. @the place.. said at 7:14 pm on October 7th, 2019:

    get your point- I personally, plan on leaving for the southern states, soon: it’s the property and other taxes, and repressive laws and regs of all of NJ, that are doing it. But, if you check voting registrations over the past few years, we are both right: northerners are moving here because it’s still cheaper than the northernmost counties, and, because of that, you and I,and many others, are giving up. Was speaking to those who,for school, family, or other reasons, need to stay for a few more years, to wake up, and not vote for these newcomers who are running in towns and county, who espouse the worst places’ ways,and will take Monmouth down, faster..

    This website is hilarious. Not since Colbert has someone so pointedly satirized the reactionary right wing.

    Oh no! She retweeted a civil rights legend who supported Colin Kaepernik! Hahahaha this is a great bit. A+

    I’ve always viewed this site akin to a Christopher Guest movie.

  10. What’s more said at 2:39 pm on October 9th, 2019:

    reactionary than the wacky left, who for three years, like baby sore-losers, can’t get over the 2016 election? What’s more reactionary than audiences, in supposed institutions of higher learning, who need” safe spaces,” and rudely and violently stamp out anyone who comes to speak, with ideas other than their rote- hate? (you don’t want to hear, don’t go!) -What’s more reactionary than the daily spreading of the left’s talking points, aka lies of the day, on most of the media? Why not start your own blog, maybe you will find your thoughts “hilarious?” – if not so dangerous to our Constitutional freedoms, wound find you “hilarious,” too.
