LOUDOUN COUNTY REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE
STANDS FOR FREE SPEECH
LOUDOUN COUNTY, VIRGINIA, MAY 14, 2023 – More information has come out about the Loudoun Love Warriors, a group espousing violence and hatred toward Virginia citizens including Governor Youngkin, Lt Governor Sears, Attorney General Miyares, Loudoun Country Republican Committee Chair Pio, and more than 100 other Virginia citizens.
Members of the Loudoun Love Warriors are affiliated with several Democrat-elected officials, including among others Commonwealth Attorney Buta Biberaj, Board of Supervisor Chair Phyllis Randall, Supervisor Juli Briskman, School Board members Atoosa Reaser and Erika Ogedegbe, and candidate for Sheriff Craig Buckley and candidate for School Board At-Large Anne Donohue. Additionally, members of the Love Warriors are linked to Democrat Loudoun organizations such as Loudoun 4 All, Students Demand Action, the local Loudoun NAACP chapter, and the Minority Student Achievement Advisory Council.
Why did a “secret group” of leftist Democrats keep a list of Virginians that they wanted to track, dox, harass, mock, intimidate, threaten, assault, silence, and ultimately destroy?
Those are the actions of domestic terrorists.
Reporters who have viewed the Love Warrior messages provided by a whistleblower state that the Love Warrior terrorists felt using such tactics would protect Democrat officials from the backlash of Loudoun parents upset over the cover-up of the rape and sexual assaults of two girls by a boy identifying as a girl in Loudoun schools.
Why would anyone or any group want to cover up such terrible incidents as sexual assault in our public schools?
Because it threatens their hold on power, and through that power their ability to impose a radical, leftist social narrative that is fundamentally divisive and destructive to our community.
Democrats say they want diversity, but the actions of the Loudoun Love Warriors speak louder. What leftist Democrats really want is conformity in thought, quotas, and a caste system where some people are better than others simply because of immutable traits.
The old saying, “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it,” is gone. It appears that a more accurate saying for Democrats in power is, “I disapprove of what you say, and therefore you will be silenced.”
Do you value freedom of speech? Do you believe that differing viewpoints and open dialogue are vital for a healthy society?
Free speech is a fundamental human right that enables individuals to express their thoughts, ideas, opinions, and beliefs without fear of censorship or retaliation. It is a cornerstone of our founding documents.
Free speech enables our community to participate in public discourse, explore different viewpoints, find common ground, provide a check on power, promote accountability, and encourages innovation and creativity. Free speech is a powerful tool against tyranny and oppression.
In this upcoming election, please ask yourself which party values free speech and which party, by its actions, crushes free speech.

MOULTHROP CALLS FOR CIVIL DISCOURSE IN RESPONSE TO SOCIAL MEDIA THREATS
LOUDOUN COUNTY, VIRGINIA, MAY 10, 2023 – Greg Moulthrop, candidate for Virginia Senate District-32 in Loudoun County, issued a statement in response to ABC News affiliate WJLA’s reporting of threats against Loudoun County residents:
“I strongly condemn threats of violence against any and all residents of our County. I entered the race for Virginia Senate because of the divisive, heated, and personal attacks on members of each party. I believe we need candidates and elected officials who focus on delivering solutions rather than creating rhetoric. I have been assured that Loudoun County Sheriff, Mike Chapman is fully aware and concerned about the threats, and I call for patience while his investigation is conducted. At this time, I ask that we remember the impact to the three members of our community who received the violent threats. It should not be controversial to stand with our neighbors, and to understand their fear for their own safety, and that of their families. Political fights belong on the floor of the legislature, outside the chamber we must remain civil to one another. We must change the way we do politics and this is our year. Let’s restore a sense of community and civility, and focus on debating shared goals that improve the lives of all Virginians not tear us apart. I believe that Loudoun County, and the Commonwealth as a whole, has a better, brighter, future in store for us all. ”
Background: On May 9, 2023, WJLA reported that the Facebook group “Loudoun Love Warriors” posted hundreds of messages calling for violence against three Loudoun County residents who have publicly vocalized support for issues including parental rights and school safety. The Facebook group includes members with ties to the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, School Board, Commonwealth’s Attorney, and Loudoun County candidates. The Loudoun County Democratic Party is conducting their own investigation and vows to expel any members from their party who tolerated the threats. The Republican Party of Virginia called the attacks “repugnant.”

LOUDOUN COUNTY REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE CONDEMNS
POLITICIZED INDICTMENT OF A FORMER PRESIDENT
LOUDOUN COUNTY, VIRGINIA, MARCH 31, 2023 – Today, a grand jury from Manhattan, New York, led by a George Soros backed and funded democrat District Attorney, indicted former President Donald Trump, the leading Republican Candidate for the 2024 nomination for President.
Our country has now become a Third World nation, where the criminal justice system is weaponized according to political agendas to drive prosecution of political opponents.
This is not a left or right issue. Every citizen, regardless of where they land on the political spectrum, should be outraged and frightened by this turn of events.
The Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank that is not aligned with liberal or conservative political ideologies, has said the indictment is a “shocking affront to the Constitution’s plan for limited government and the rule of law.”
Legal scholar and constitutional expert Jonathan Turley called the indictment “a patently political prosecution,” “deeply flawed,” and “legally pathetic.” Former Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz called the indictment “foolish” and said, “this is not what the criminal justice system is supposed to be.”
But under Democrat leadership, this is what our criminal justice system has become.
Here in Loudoun County, we have firsthand knowledge of the corruption of a Soros-funded district attorney within our own commonwealth attorney’s office.
Democrats cannot be trusted with our justice system and our Constitution. Rather than uphold the rule of law, Democrats tip the scales of justice in favor of their political agenda and progressive biases.
Democrats repeatedly drop legitimate charges, or pursue unjust prosecution, based on skin color and ideology. Nationally, we have watched Democrat prosecutors use easily manipulated grand jury investigations, and the “secrecy” that comes with them, to undermine the principles of transparency and due process while at the same time distracting the general public from the widespread failures of the Biden administration.
Every citizen must think about what future lies ahead for their children and grandchildren. What the Democrats are building for young people is a tyrannical, totalitarian, communist, Marxist society.

LOUDOUN COUNTY REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE DISAPPROVES OF COUNTY EQUITY RESOLUTION: WHERE WILL BOARD OF SUPERVISORS DECISION LEAD?
January 23, 2023
LOUDOUN COUNTY, VIRGINIA; JANUARY 23, 2023 — On January 17, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors (LCBOS) voted 6-1 (with one abstention and one absent) to support the “Social and Racial Equity as Fundamental Values,” resolution that now requires the county to govern through an equity lens. Votes are below.
Yes – Randall, Saines, Briskman, Glass, Turner, Umstattd
No – Kershner
Abstained – Buffington
Absent – LeTourneau
The Loudoun County Republican Committee (LCRC) of Virginia, a grassroots organization whose members take action to promote issues of importance to Loudoun County residents, disagrees with this resolution.
The reality is that this resolution requires Loudoun County government to apply the Socialist concept of “equity” and discriminate against people of one skin color, nationality, or gender in favor of another. In direct violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the Board members have dismissed the concept of selection based on merit, which is a foundational element of Western civilization that gave us our current standard of living.
Loudoun County is three generations removed from the passing of the Civil Rights Act. Today, most Americans reject the idea of preferences based on such things as skin color by a wide margin. For example, 74% reject racial preferences in college admissions, here https://tinyurl.com/swa9yfcf. Our county is a fully integrated society with many relationships crossing different races and nationalities and with our children growing up having friends from many diverse backgrounds.
Why should the LCBOS Equity Resolution be of concern to Loudoun County citizens?
Because it further divides our community into so many camps rather than uniting our county in a common pursuit of excellence.
America is the land of opportunity. A person’s place in today’s society is not a fault of society but a result of individual choices that each person makes. Enabling government officials to decide who is qualified based on anything but merit will divide our county, inevitably lead to a quota system, invite government corruption, and be a violation of civil rights.
The way to address this racist resolution passed by our Board of Supervisors is to elect supervisors who support non-discrimination and equal opportunity for all.

LOUDOUN’S COMMONWEALTH ATTORNEY DECLINES TO PROSECUTE CERTAIN CRIMES: ARE SMASH-AND-GRABS FAR BEHIND?
January 17, 2023
LOUDOUN COUNTY, VIRGINIA, JANUARY 17, 2023 – On December 30, 2022, the Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney, Buta Biberaj, notified district judges that her office would no longer prosecute the following crimes: hit and run with property damage; eluding police; petty larceny (including goods up to $1,000); possession of certain controlled substances; failure to appear in court; and others. Instead, these cases will be sent to district courts with only law enforcement representing the County. This is a startling turnaround for Biberaj, who in 2021 took the unusual step of personally prosecuting a Loudoun father for misdemeanor charges.
RAM VENKATACHALAM: EQUITY - THE WOLF IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING
January 16, 2022
This week, the Loudoun Board of Supervisors plans to vote on a lengthy resolution to codify “social and racial equity as a fundamental value” of county governmental policies and personnel practices.
It is a bad idea, and I oppose it.
Many proponents of this and other equity-styled initiatives seek to denigrate those of us who oppose them by suggesting we are against the equal protection and treatment of all persons regardless of race, gender, religion, national origin, or anything else.
This is a falsehood that needs to be exposed.
I am strong and lifelong advocate Equality of Opportunity for All – a moral and legitimate objective of any just society. Equity advocates want something different – something that is neither equitable nor moral at its core.
They want equality of outcome, so no matter how hard someone works, or their gender, race, or background, they get the same result as everyone else. This is not good social policy, nor something our local Board of Supervisors should be spending its time on.
I am a proud American of Indian heritage. Over the years I have learned much about what it means to be compassionate and to help others – and what it means to pick winners and losers regardless of merit or a true belief in equality. One is noble; the other is not.
In India, Mahatma Gandhi fought for equal rights and opportunities for “untouchables” humans – the so-called Children of God, who were suppressed. Mother Teresa fought for Indian people with leprosy whose needs were ignored and whose humanity was disparaged.
In America, the Rev. Martin Luther King fought for civil rights and against racial prejudice that perpetuated segregation and the separate and UN-equal treatment of American citizens.
In South Africa, Nelson Mandela fought against apartheid – not to secure some version of “equity,” but instead to secure basic equal rights for non-white people.
All of these were noble battles for equality, not equity of outcomes.
Most of us or our fore-bearers came to America as immigrants. Those of us who have settled in Loudoun County are grateful. It is where we work, socialize, and raise our families with gratitude for the opportunities and freedoms afforded to us – including the opportunity to be treated equally, work hard, and succeed.
I recently traveled to India with my family and met with family, old friends, and others in various cities who asked about America and wondered if their hard work would still be welcomed here. They were uniformly critical of divisive politics, and troubled that Americans are not working together better for the common good. They also voiced uniform opposition to equal outcomes for all, which is different than the legitimate goal of equal opportunity for all.
America already has “fundamental values” enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, its amendments, and the law. We don’t need new values mandated by the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors – and certainly not the complex, backward-looking resolution that is intended to impact all aspects of county policy and personnel practices.
It is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and it should be rejected.

LCRC OPPOSES POLITICALLY MOTIVATED FBI RAID APPROVED BY BIDEN'S
August 13, 2022
The Loudoun County Republican Committee opposes the dangerous precedent of an FBI raid of the home of a former U.S. President, particularly when document disputes should be settled by negotiation. The Fourth Amendment of the Constitution is designed to protect Americans from unreasonable searches and seizures by the government. A raid like this against the home of a former U.S. president should not happen. It is at a minimum, another example of Federal government overreach approved by the highest levels, and another reflection of a politically motivated FBI. Hung Cao, a retired Navy captain running for the 10th District Congressional seat, is committed to restoring Constitutional government, fighting government overreach, and reestablishing trust in our institutions. Vote for Cao and help restore Constitutional government.
