The "Civility" of Scott Parsons' Supporters
During the Debate at the Slate, Ron Angle opponent Scott Parsons stated several times that he'll restore civility to Northampton County Council, and immediately followed that up with a few personal attacks. It seems those are always OK if they are made against Angle. Now the outrageous behavior displayed by his supporters reveals that Scott Parsons may need a few lessons in civility before he can start preaching it.
At last week's County Council meeting, when a group I call the Gracedale Goons began heckling Ron Angle, I turned around to film them in action, as I've done once before. Jack Dalessandro responded by lunging at me, from two rows back, in an effort to prevent me from revealing the usual disruptive catcalls made at every Council meeting. He knocked one woman right out of her seat in the process.
Collateral damage, I guess.
Of course, I posted the video on Friday.
These are the people on Scott Parsons' side, and he considers himself "blessed."
After I posted that video, things got ugly. Since Friday, they have posted vicious comment after vicious comment on their own hate blog [I refuse to link to it], hoping to silence me by shouting me down. I have demanded removal of some real clear defamation, but they just poured it on even more.
So I find it necessary to make clear here that those disgusting comments (I will not describe them) are completely untrue, and are made maliciously. I do intend to take legal action, once I have the requisite funds. Mary Ann Schmoyer, Mario Martinez and Peg Dalessandro are three people with posting privileges, and I know at least two other people are involved in this sick not-so-anonymous venture.
Amazingly, the smears do not end there.
Yesterday, I visited LU to talk to one of Bill White's journalism classes, along with LV With Love blogger George Wacker. He's a blogger who does everything right. He's got money, babes, a cool beard and even a frickin' car, all as a result of blogging.
Me? I'm a case study in how to screw things up. I think Bill uses me to scare his students straight.
I like it.
After leaving class, I eventually checked out my iPad to learn that now, in addition to the vicious comments, there's a full-blown blog, just to say that "the nonsensical ignoramus [that would be me] has been spotted at Lehigh university just minutes ago, you think maybe he's going for and EDU or is he stalking a member of the Coalition?" In the comments that follow, I am accused of having been there to stalk someone, apparently one of them. Then another blog entry was posted, accusing me of writing those disgusting comments myself, presumably so I could play victim.
The disgusting comments still remain. In fact, more have since been added.
Bill White felt compelled to write a story himself, explaining that that I was at Lehigh to visit his class. "Sorry, guys, but he was not up to anything nefarious."
White's blog made no difference to them, even when one of his readers popped on their site to explain why I was at Lehigh. In fact, his journalistic integrity was attacked next. There's this - "The local media including Bill White would only write the press releases given them by John Stoffa." - followed by a hypocritical "God bless."
That sure sounds like the Fake Rev to me.
I'll be asking him.
Until then, I am reposting the Jack D'Alessandro Attack of the Gracedale Goon.
These are Scott Parsons' supporters.
