Rep. Stella Tremblay: How can a Facebook comment create such a vicious backlash?

Writing on Facebook, state House Rep. Stella Tremblay defended herself from criticism that Democrats will benefit from her incendiary claim that the U.S. government was responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing.

The Auburn Republican said Republicans who have attacked her have abandoned their principles and will be punished at the polls. "It is all about ‘the GOP’ staying in power and not about standing up for principles or truth," she complained. "Joining the attack does not add credibility to the GOP party and the difference between the parties,” Tremblay added. “They are the ones that will never win another election.”

Tremblay blamed the media for twisting her words. “They certainly know how to tell the truth without ANY manipulation or prejudice right?” she asked sarcastically.

"I did not embezzle (as some representatives did and are now back), I did [not] damage peoples property, steal, extort, bribe, or anything of the kind. There is only one that I am accountable to: GOD, the creator of our universe," she concluded.

The full, unedited exchange follows:

Jack Frost: Tremblay criticized for comments on bombing victim. NH GOPers like this are giving NH Dems even better odds at retaining the legislative majority…

Stella Tremblay: So Jack Frost: It is all about “the GOP” staying in power and not about standing up for principles or truth. We certainly have turned in the direction of evil…and completely embraced it!!! Look at the crazy stuff happening? Students with “permission” slips from their parents to take advil , yet they can go to get the “morning after” pill. We have no idea of the long term effects. Oh have you ever talked to the Media, Mr. Frost? They certainly know how to tell the truth without ANY manipulation or prejudice right?

Jack Frost: It’s one thing to question the government. It’s something else to attack the victims of the bombing… or appear to.

Stella Tremblay: THAT was twisted. It is because of the “victims” that we as Americans from all parties should DEMAND a full investigation. Can you match the dots? Bengazi, Fast and Furious, etc. Have we had an investigation? NO! It is all determined that it is “classified” and swept under the rug. Those that are emergency personnel and our troops deserve better. Honesty for one.

Stella Tremblay: Just one more thing. How can a “comment” on facebook create such a vicious back-lash? Do you realize that our town had two mail-box bombs (only one went off) the same day I had a letter delivered to my home with the sign of the SOLIDARITY Fist. You know the groups that enjoy discussion and discourse. When are we going to stand up and fight those that will say whatever they want (which is a First Amendment Right for ALL) and yet not be allowed to do the same if we disagree. Joining the attack does not add credibility to the GOP party and the difference between the parties. They are the ones that will never win another election. I have had many e-mails to the effect that people want “HONEST and trustworthy politicians” in the government, and thanking that someone is asking the questions they want answered. I did not embezzle (as some representatives did and are now back), I did damage peoples property, steal, extort, bribe, or anything of the kind. There is only one that I am accountable to: GOD, the creator of our universe.
