Kathie Obradovich writes in the 8/19 Register, referring to Paul Ryan’s speech and the debacle that was. She mentions a good quote from Socialist Workers Party candidate David Rosenfeld who says that, “Shouting down those you disagree with is not only counter-productive; ultimately it will undermine our ability to defend our free speech rights when they come under attack.”
Law enforcement is clueless on what to do. A fight is going to breakout and the wrong person will get charged. Or worse.
It’s funny how Democrat candidates never suffer these insane verbal assaults. Just Republicans. You would almost say the Dem’s have a corner on histrionic nuts. Okay, a monopoly. Obradovich did help with one thing though, she refers to the morons from Citizens for Community Improvement as “jackasses”. I had always wondered how that was spelled. I thought it might be ‘jackass’s’. Or maybe ‘jackass’ ‘. But now I know. When I want to refer to “Father” Frank Cordaro and his co-conspirators, I’ll say “jackasses”.
The whole situation with the Register’s “soapbox“, reminded me of a similar situation that happened on their website. For several years they had provided a forum for everyday readers called the “Recent Reader Blogs“. 20 or so ordinary Iowans (and a few others from out-of-state) regularly put up posts on the Registers website in the form of their own blog. Iowa JBS did as well. Their site got lots of traffic. It got to the point though where a couple of psychos ruined it for everyone else. They took a good thing, free, highly visible blogs, and killed it with their fighting and feuding. The Register got fed up with the obscenities and bickering. They just eliminated it.
The 2 main offenders were a communist from New York who is in love with O’Bama named S.G. Guiletti, and a Republican from Ankeny named Rick L. Those 2 were just insane in their bickering. They seriously thought their respective presidential candidates were the answer for everything wrong in America. They each thought the other party was all wrong. And their party was always right. The idea that there might be a third way never occurred to them. The idea that both the Democrats and Republicans were playing them for fools, was incomprehensible to them. To this day, even after they killed the Recent Reader Blogs on the Register site for everyone else, they still maintain a death-grip on a false dialectic.
