Entrenched lib mayor who staunchly supports taking in Syrian refugees learns a lesson on Election Day

Liberals usually imagine that if they wallow in PCism enough they will be returned to office over and over again, and in liberal Vermont that is usually the case. But one town mayor got the surprise of his life when his extreme stance in favor of bringing Muslim “refugees” into his town got him fired by the voters.

Mayor Christopher Louras of the town of Rutland, Vermont, has been a loud voice for bringing hundreds if not thousands of Muslim “refugees” to his area, and tens of thousands more into this country. The five-term mayor helped negotiate the federal contracts to bring these “refugees” into Vermont and last year he announced to his constituents that he had arranged for his small town of 16,500 people to take in 100 Syrian refugees in fiscal year 2017, WND.com reported.

And then he went up for re-election assuming that his long incumbency would continue unaltered. But when all the ballots were counted, Louras was shocked to find that he didn’t just lose his bid for re-election, he was drubbed.

Once Election Day was over, Louras lost his bid winning only 32 percent of the vote. 52 percent went to his challenger, Davide Allaire.

This result is shocking. Hillary Clinton, who was a strong advocate for untrammeled Muslim immigration during last year’s election, won the county by just under a thousand votes but won the city’s vote in a landslide in a state that went for Hillary 56.7 percent to Trump’s 30.3 percent. So, the area is pretty liberal, yet this mayor was literally thrown out of office.

Interestingly, the winning mayoral candidate got no help at all from the local media which was in the tank for the incumbent mayor.

“In their sacrilegious and diabolical effort to squelch the truth, they won’t put it out there, so it’s hard to emphasize how important this victory is because the leftist media just doesn’t give you a fair shake, and we went into it expecting that. We knew we wouldn’t get a fair shake,” local activist Don Chioffi told WND.

Perhaps some liberals are starting to wake up?

The losing mayor is blaming his voters for the loss essentially calling them bigots.
