Letter: Mike Fetterman, Leesburg

Editor: In response to last week’s article, “With 115 Dead, Randall Decries Protesters’ Mock “Casket Dance,” I wholeheartedly agree with County Chair Randall’s response to this as insensitive, ignorant and an affront to people impacted either directly or indirectly by COVID-19. 

As a conservative and registered Republican delegate in the 10th district, I’m embarrassed and appalled that fellow Republicans would do such a thing. I don’t want to make this political, but it certainly doesn’t help either party when things like this occur. 

We’ve all been impacted by this virus in some or many ways and for others it has been devastating. I applaud County Chair Randall for calling out these people for this type of demonstration. It’s demeaning, divisive and it’s the last thing we need for those of us who are trying to bring people together in unity on things we can agree with, to support each other, during these difficult and uncertain times no matter what political party we align with.

    She called out groups that had nothing to do with the coffin dance just more of her smear campaign and you don’t know the facts so you perpetuate the lies. Conservative my @$$!

    I have to respectfully disagree with Mr. Ketterman’s response the Chairman Randall’s hypocritical complaint. While he has every right to object to the specifics of the demonstration, he should be made aware that it occurred after 16 weeks of peaceful protests highlighting the devastating effects of Randall’s COVID decisions, based on no Loudoun specific data, that has had a disastrous effect on local small businesses.
    While doing everything in her power to shut down these demonstrations against the unreasonable, one size fits all restrictions, she was, at the same time, leading mobs of demonstrators supporting a cause she believed deserved exception. Further, Mr. Kellerman can rest assured that it is only Randall’s biased opinion that the Republican party bears any responsibility for these on going Friday morning demonstrations.
