Assemblyman Wirths Slams Murphy’s “contempt for GOP protest”

Assemblyman Hal Wirths responded to Gov. Phil Murphy’s comments about Republican lawmakers who refused last week to comply with vaccine and testing mandates to enter the Statehouse.

“What is absolutely outrageous is that the governor doesn’t think this is about freedom or civil rights when he treated the State Police like junkyard dogs protecting the Assembly from Republicans like they are a danger to the property,” said Wirths (R-Sussex). “He ordered the State Police to keep us out of the chambers. They deserve better than that. At least the State Police have respect for the law and individual rights.”

“We are law-abiding citizens who are elected to represent the people of New Jersey and we peacefully represent them,” continued Wirths. “If we don’t need a vaccination card to buy groceries, we don’t need a vaccination card to do our constitutional duty.”

“He can’t coerce us into how we represent the people who elected us,” concluded Wirths. “He has an utter disregard and contempt for anyone who disagrees with him, and he is unable to see the other side.”

  1. Governor Knucklehead, is just that, a KNUCKLEHEAD!

    He’s a socialist Democrat and that’s all there is about him. As I drive around the state including what would be strong leftist areas of the state, a month after election day and I see all the Jack For Governor signs still up, I really wonder how real his election was.
