IT IS TIME TO VOTE THIS RACIST OUT OF OFFICE
The Montgomery County, Maryland County Council is about as liberal as you can get. And despite the claims of “We represent all of the People” and “Diversity is Our Strength” … They clearly do not represent all the people and diversity in everything, but political thought is what they really mean.
However, recent events call attention to the most racially biased member of the Council, Will Jawando. Councilmen Jawando has been an outspoken critic of the Montgomery County Police Department and has likened the Police to the “Slave Patrols” of the old South … this just to heighten the rhetoric against police when the country and the county could not be more divided on the issue. And true to the Democrat credo of never letting a crisis go to waste… Jawando has not failed to produce with this Tweet:
Now one would have to deaf, dumb, AND BLIND not to understand the circumstances the Police were faced with and the unenviable requirement to shoot and kill a 15 year old black girl. The video from the Police Body Cam tells us what we need to know about this unfortunate incident…
The entire world can clearly see that the victim Makiyah Bryant is about to plunge a knife into the girl in the pink suit. This is not a “Social Worker” call, or a “Slave Patrol” collecting a bounty… this is a MURDER IN PROGRESS that has been thwarted by the Police… We can see that --- WITH OUR OWN EYES --- but not Will Jawando. His racial animus and not so subtle bias is failing to serve the residence of this county. His calls to “reimagine the police leave us all less safe… and his willingness to use the death of this potential murder as a cudgel beat on the Montgomery County police has reached the point where he must be called on it.
There are many residents of this county who are frightened by this type of anti-police rhetoric. They are frightened for their families, for their property and the well being of the County.
It is time for Jawando to call off his raciest attacks on our police and start acting on behalf of the entire county. Montgomery County deserves better… and November of ’22 is just over the horizon.

Opposing the teaching of racial hatred in our public schools
Testimony of Amy Waychoff
Member of the Montgomery County Republican Central Committee
To the Montgomery County Board of Education August 24, 2021
Thank you for this opportunity to testify. I have lived in Montgomery County for 33 years, and all three of my children graduated from MCPS.
In a recent viral video, a man in Colorado, who happens to be descended from slaves, convinced his school board to ban Critical Race Theory (CRT) with these words: “I can think of nothing more damaging to a society than to tell a baby born today that she has grievances against another baby born today simply because of what their ancestors did two centuries ago.” Derrick Wilburn was referring to one aspect of CRT that is being taught right here in Montgomery County.
CRT posits that White people are inherently racist, from birth, while Black people and other minorities are victims, oppressed by the white supremacy that supposedly permeates everything.
MCPS will deny that its schools are teaching CRT. But this Marxist ideology goes by many euphemisms, and one undeniably used in MCPS is the doctrine of becoming “antiracist.” No matter how it is phrased, however, it is racism. Earlier this year, some of our fourth and fifth graders read Tiffany Jewel’s “This Book is Anti-Racist.” The author states,
- Non-White students should “go to the head of the line,” but if you are White, “step aside.”
By these metrics, school board members who are White should resign immediately. Are you planning to do so? If you do not, then by your lack of action you agree that CRT is insane and absurd.
Also in Jewel’s book,
- We must “fracture the very foundation of our racist society” and “shake it all up so it can crumble.” This is a revolutionary statement.
Last year, Cabin John Middle School had its ENTIRE COMMUNITY read a book coauthored by Ibram X. Kendi, who asserts that “the only remedy to racist discrimination is antiracist discrimination. The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination.”
There are many Black Americans who disagree with Kendi. Derrick Wilburn testified that “I’m not oppressed and . . . putting CRT in classrooms is not combating racism. It’s fanning the flames of what little embers are left.” I agree with him: “let racism die the death it deserves.”
Thank you for this opportunity to present my views.
