Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog

Public Corruption in Chester County, PA

I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

PA State Representative DanTruitt “We’re not extremists”

"I think it’s key to go out there and spread the message that we don’t hate Democrats. We have to make them think that, make them understand that, we respect them as people."

Listen to Republicans talking to each other at this fundraising session.

Dan Truitt is explaining how a right wing Republican can win elections in a liberal leaning Legislative District.

I think the reason is low interest and low voter turnout but he explains that you have to pretend to listen to Democrats and liberals.

Notice that Dan Truitt never mentions compromising with those liberal Democrats. 
He’s all about persuading people to come to his view because the it’s the Lord’s view.

"We're not extremists.

And I've always believed that the Lord’s not going to let me lose an election because I’m pro-life. So I move along to other issues.

"As a state representative in Harrisburg I don't just represent conservatives, I don't just represent Tea Party people. I represent 63,000 people. And some of them are very liberal. 

And for those people I listen to what they say and I try to find common ground with them. And that’s something I’m going to ask everyone in this room going forward into the coming election. 

Because it can be difficult sometimes when you hear someone express a view that you think it totally wrong of completely opposite of your own view to still back off and try to treat that person with respect and understand there’s probably some reason behind what they believe. Some folks who are very liberal are liberal because they believe, they’re trying to help people. Now the solutions they come up with tend to be very misguided. 

So what you have to ask yourself is well, what would Jesus do in this situation? Well he would try to teach those people. And that’s what I try to do every day I try to approach Democrats and liberals and people at the other end of the political spectrum and at least understand where they’re coming from. 

And then teach them the error of their ways.”

At the end of the fundraiser two questions were asked. One question was, ‘How do you intend to beat your Democratic opponent.’

"I think it’s key to go out there and spread the message that we don’t hate Democrats. We have to make them think that, make them understand that, we respect them as people. We just disagree with them on some issues. We make that mistake.

The Democrats do it to us all the time. They denigrate the Tea Party, like the Tea Party members are all irrelevant. They're not to be listened to. 

Well you have to listen to everybody. So we have to get out there this year and listen to everybody and make them understand that we hear them."
