Dear Elected Officials of Washington County,

We, a portion of the people that you represent, request and require that you take specific actions to combat and publicly disapprove the terrorism displayed by domestic insurgents taking over the United States Capitol building and disrupting the certification of a free and fair presidential election on January 6, 2021. 


We require that you publicly disavow these terrorist actions without employing false equivalency statements, whataboutisms, partisan rhetoric, straw man arguments, misinformation, or equivocation. We require that you publicly condemn the insurgent attack on the US Capitol and US Congress on January 6th and that you clearly call these actions, behaviors, and motivations exactly what they so clearly are: terrorism.


We require that you publicly acknowledge and make restitution for your complicity in this tragic insurrection and painful act of terror on the American people and its beloved and vital institutions. We require these public actions because of your involvement in these behaviors and because you swore an oath, not to party or to ideology, but to the people of your state and to the Constitutions of both Oklahoma and the United States. Your blind devotion to President Donald Trump and his seditious words, your refusal to be honest about the 2020 elections with your constituency, and your support of partisanship above oath, district, and people make you complicit in the dangerous behavior of Donald Trump and the terrorist actions of these partisan insurgents. Your continued support of the incendiary and irresponsible behavior of President Trump amounts to a dereliction of duty and gross negligence, jeopardizing the very people you swore to serve.


We require that you publicly condemn white supremacist behaviors in Oklahoma and in the USA, that you acknowledge the role of white supremacy and racism in the terrorist actions of January 6th, and that you actively work to dismantle the systemic support for white insurgency and hate that made yesterday’s terrorism both possible and inevitable.


We require that you publicly repudiate the dangerous and seditious conspiracy theories by the group QAnon that have contributed to the terrorist actions of January 6th. In addition to public disavowal, we require that you hold conspiracy theorists accountable within your own constituency by using your social influence and the influence of your elected seat to speak the truth rather than give a platform to such dangerous insurrectionists in our local community. 


We require that you publicly disavow authoritarianism and Donald Trump’s support for authoritarian behavior that led to the insurrection on January 6th. 


Finally, we require that Senator James Lankford and Representative Kevin Hern resign their positions immediately for their role in inflaming the terrorist insurgents by lying to the American people about the specifics of the 2020 presidential election, thereby violating Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment to the US Constitution. We also require that our state elected officials, Senator Julie Daniels, Representative Judd Strom, and Representative Wendi Stearman, provide a plan for detailed public engagement in our community to combat conspiracy theories within their political parties and constituencies.


You work for us, and we demand you work towards restitution, rebuilding trust, and focusing on critical jurisdictional issues rather than partisan sabre rattling and ideological posturing. The residents of Washington County will be better served when you start focusing on the issues that matter to us most: robust and sustained funding for public education, expanding access to rural broadband, a science-based approach to protect us from Covid-19, and the diversification of our rapidly ageing economy.
