June 13, 2011Representative Tom Hackbarth100 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.Saint Paul, Minnesota 55155Sent via email and by U.S. Postal ServiceDear Representative Hackbarth,I received a copy of an email that you sent to one of my members, Robin Seifert, inregards to her membership in the union I represent. While I appreciate your willingnessto respond to your constituents, I am deeply troubled about what you wrote and ask youto shed light onto linking a public employee union with the rise of Adolph Hitler andmurderous armies of Fidel Castro.I would appreciate you clarifying your statement to our member on June 9, 2011, at10:14 pm:
“Robin,
 I can't believe what I'm hearing from folks? All, similar letters to yours. Are you a Union member? If so, are they the communist giving you thispropaganda?Do you know the who, what, when, where, why, and how, of Fidel Castro?Hitler rose to power using and blaming the jews for the destruction of theGerman economy. Castro built his army of murderers by blaming the rich bankers and capitalist for destroying Cuba and taking advantage of the Cubanpeople. Hummmm?
Representative Hackbarth”
 
Representative Hackbarth, do you really equate advocating for the middle class and
Minnesota’s vulnerable citizens as communist propaganda?
Do you really believe that when our members ask you to protect 140,000 Minnesotans from losing their MnCare benefits rather than having the richest two percent of Minnesotans paying their fairshare of taxes it compares to the rise of Hitler and targeting the Jews? When didsupporting public services for battered women, crime victims and students in publicuniversities become a fascist notion?
 
  When did humanity and caring for our neighbors and asking for millionaires to pay their fair share become supporting Fidel Castro and his murderous armies?Monroe LetterTo Rep. HackbarthJune 13, 2011Page 2 As I am sure you would agree, we are lucky to live in a free society. But with thefreedom of expression, comes the responsibility of explaining oneself. I ask that youplease explain to me the basis of your email response to a hard working public employee who wants to work for Minnesota, is proud to serve this state and is worried about whatan all-cuts budget will do to her family and the rest of the middle class. We are not asking you to agree with everything, but you were elected to serve all yourconstituents and listen to their concerns respectfully without denigrating their ideas.Please remember that their hard earned tax dollars fund your position. At the end of this letter, I will attach the full exchange between you and Robin Siefert torefresh your memory.Thank you for your time with this matter.Sincerely,James MonroeExecutive DirectorEnc: email exchange between Rep. Hackbarth and MAPE member.
