Governor Rick Perry Blasts Sacramento Cartoon Mocking Texas Explosion Victims
Earlier this week the Sacramento Bee published this disgusting cartoon mocking the Texas explosion that killed over a dozen people.
The liberals in California thought it was funny.
On Friday, Governor Rick Perry sent the Sacramento Bee a response:
Re “Business is booming in Texas” (Editorial cartoon, April 25): It was with extreme disgust and disappointment I viewed your recent cartoon. While I will always welcome healthy policy debate, I won’t stand for someone mocking the tragic deaths of my fellow Texans and our fellow Americans.
Additionally, publishing this on the very day our state and nation paused to honor and mourn those who died only compounds the pain and suffering of the many Texans who lost family and friends in this disaster. The Bee owes the community of West, Texas an immediate apology for your detestable attempt at satire.
— Gov. Rick Perry, Austin, Tex.
