The following is an open letter opposing Linda McMahon’s candidacy for US Senate representing Connecticut. Watch the video and you’ll understand why.
An Open Letter:
As mothers, grandmothers, daughters, and sisters, we are compelled to voice our strong opposition to the candidacy of former World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Linda McMahon to represent Connecticut in the U.S. Senate. (Note: the following video below is explicit and disgusting.)
As Mothers Opposing McMahon, we know you don’t have to be a mom- or even a woman- to recognize that what Linda McMahon has been marketing, especially to kids, is appalling and unacceptable. She is on her way to spending $50 million in an attempt to buy this election, money earned marketing extremely violent, sexually explicit content – featuring abusive, degrading treatment of women. This open letter is an invitation to women – to other moms, grandmothers, daughters, and sisters – and to every citizen of Connecticut, to join us in sharing the truth about Linda McMahon to make clear she should not represent us in the U.S. Senate.
There is a real price paid for what Linda McMahon calls “soap opera” by wrestlers who sustain terrible injuries in the ring, some even killed by an environment a Congressional investigation said encouraged steroid and illegal drug abuse. She earned her millions putting her workers at risk, and failing to provide health insurance or other disability benefits. The candidate now promising to create jobs laid off ten percent of her workforce to protect her personal profits.
Please share the short but explicit video we’ve attached and the truth about Linda McMahon with your family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers. We do not believe this video is appropriate for children, though Linda McMahon originally created, broadcast, and marketed its content to children. This is what she has been selling:
- Female wrestlers, forced to strip to their underwear, then beaten, kicked, and dragged around by their hair in the ring, before being throw on top of each other like trash;
- Females wrestlers forced to bark like dogs, strip, and touch each other, while being screamed at and insulted by jeering crowds yelling “slut” and other words that can’t be printed here;
- Wrestlers beating their opponents with folding chairs – some wrapped in barbed wire – and smashing glass pitchers over their opponents’ heads
Join us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/mothersopposingmcmahon, and invite others to join us, too, to show your support for this open letter and to make sure Connecticut moms – and everyone else in Connecticut who cares about our kids and thinks women should be treated with respect–knows the truth about Linda McMahon and why she’s the wrong choice for U.S. Senate.
