Although I'm a highly-conditioned well-trained athlete and grandmaster Hearts player, I have very few natural abilities. I do excel at one thing. I have an uncanny ability to really piss people off. Right now, South Whitehall Comm'r and attempted union buster Matt Mobilio is rolling around the floor, frothing at the mouth, over my criticism of him. This phony liberal suggested that Trump supporters be hung for treason, but hates seeing his own actions called into question. But to be clear, let me warn you that I'm an equal opportunity offender. NorCo GOP Exec candidate Steve Lynch (and suspected domestic terrorist) is blowin' oil about me, too.
Lynch calls his followers his "#lyncharmy" or "#teamlynch." I have a better term - lynch mob. I'm sure he has a noose or two somewhere. After all, he was part of the lynch mob that invaded the U.S. Capitol on January 6 in a unsuccessful coup against the Congress. They even had a gallows set up for VP Mike Pence. Lynch, who by his own admission was visited by the FBI over his own role in that failed fracas, is now the Republican party's lead candidate in the upcoming NorCo races.
I reached out to Lynch before his formal announcement and he agreed to sit down with me, even though I warned him we have little in common. Lynch not only reneged on his promise, but blocked me from his Facebook page. Lynch called me a "deplorable," a term I thought was reserved for Trump supporters. Here's how he explains his decision to block me. "Why should I give a liar and a partisan political hack access to my Facebook page or my candidate page?" Well, Steve, if you believe in transparency, you should.
Lynch failed to enumerate what lies I told about him. Everything I wrote about him came from his own mouth or public records. I have preserved the videos of him admitting he was visited by the FBI and that he failed the physical for the Reading police department. I have his voting record showing that he simply fails to vote in municipal races, and cast no vote in either of the last two Exec races. The judgments against this so -called businessman are a matter of public record. What I wrote might be unflattering, but happens to be true.
As to his claim that I am a partisan political hack, I am a Democrat but have often voted for Republicans. In most years, I usually vote for more Republicans than Democrats. But just as Mad Matty Mobilio is vewy vewy angwy, so is Lynch. Here's what he recently wrote:
"The left are the most vile, racist and hypocritical group of human beings I have ever come across in my entire life! You can take your narrative you try to spin about Patriots and shove it. The Dems even blew up their 'moment' when the coordinated attack on Washington (not by Patriots but by the ones who are always projecting their sins and crimes onto us) was overshadowed by their relentless pursuit to abolish free speech! You people are a cancer to society and would be ashamed of yourselves if you had a conscience. We win in the end because we are the light that has come to abolish the darkness."
Steve needs a nap. He talks about censorship when it is he who has blocked several people. He is attempting to blame Democrats for the failed coup in which he was either a legal or illegal participant even though the evidence (and arrests) make clear that those responsible were right wing nuts. He is gushing hate on a political party and ideology simply because it differs from his. This is anti-American.
