|We all recognize intolerance don't we? Well Mr. Pelline apparently does not|
Todd Juvinall, once a county supervisor supposedly charged with leading all of us, not just his like-minded friends, has had enough of the “hoimosexual” (sic) activists! http://sierradragonsbreathe.blogspot.com/2014/04/hoimosexual-activists-are-new-fascists.html#comment-form
This is a market-driven issue, not a First Amendment issue. The Union’s subscribers include the aging, highly conservative demographic (Todd and George Rebane), so it caters to them with homophobic editorials like this. What would prompt you to write such a letter for publication in the local newspaper? Our family will never subscribe, because we live and work in the 21st century with a wide diversity of people. We’ve moved onto other issues and would rather discuss those. And our son is being raised to accept the LGBT community, so he probably won’t subscribe either. It will be irrelevant content. I happily recall how Obama’s children influenced his stance on same-sex marriage:"
When I returned from being away (I left my computer at home), there were some comments from bloggers on the topic and they were including mention of a couple of kids by some local people. I got a number of emails from Mr. Pelline chewing me out and demanding I remove those comments. I was under the impression that kids were off limits (that is actually my policy) and I removed those comments and asked the people to stop that. Then I was told Mr. Pelline had actually made the above comment on his blog and included his kid. Pelline actually called the Sheriff ! Well, no law was broken but etiquette demands I do the right thing and I did. Today I was told about Mr. Pelline's comments on his own son and now I am pretty pissed at the hypocrite.
So there you have it. Pelline tells the world he is teaching his son and mentions him on his own blog and chastises others for doing the same thing. Liberals always do this don't they? Yep. Anyway, I would have removed the comments anyway and now that I read Pelline's comment and then his "thanks" to the Sheriff, (for dramatic inpact I suppose and/or imtimidation), we can all rest easier. But this just cements my view of the person we all call the FUE (former Union Editor) as the hypocrite we have come to know. Thank you Jeff Ackerman for getting this fellow out of the newsroom of our prized and cherished Union Newspaper. We are sooo grateful.
