The Tea Party Guy and His Scary-Influential Google Group

12 Jun

Apparently, I’ve been likened by Jim Ostrowski to a character in an Ayn Rand novel. What a nerd-dope.

Anyhow, Ostrowski’s last remaining ally in local politics is a very silly tea party guy who so badly wants to be paid attention to, so badly wants to be relevant, that I won’t ever use his name again, thus denying him the recognition and attention he so craves. So here’s what that silly tea-party guy who runs the Google group and is a full-fledged birther, has to say about me:

Ellsworth Toohey. That is funny. I don’t know why this guy wastes everyone’s time posting his inane drivel. I have allowed you and your fellow back alley snipers on ReformNYS for all these months, bp, and all you do is look for ways to trash me for expressing my opinions, and I see you do the same thing to others here. Do you not know that it is not yet illegal in this country to express one’s opinion despite your efforts to make it so? There is no censorship and no moderation of comments on ReformNYS which means that anyone can post anything at any time except insults to another member and yet, you lie on your crappy blog and say that I have to approve everything.

Firstly, let me say this: there was a time that I had been removed from this person’s Google group, and when I made a stink about it on my blog, I was reinstated – or my access to its content was. I haven’t ever posted to it, nor do I feel compelled to. I also don’t obsess about Coniglio’s little online salon the way he seems to think I do. But here’s exhibit A of this individual’s unintentional hilarity. This line:

Do you not know that it is not yet illegal in this country to express one’s opinion despite your efforts to make it so?

Here’s a challenge for this person. Point to a single, solitary thing I’ve done or said that would tend to be evidence of an “effort” on my part to make it “illegal” for one to “express one’s opinion”. Just because you have the right to clumsily express your silly opinions, doesn’t mean I don’t have a concomitant right to mock or criticize them. HTH.

You are a liar, Bedenko. A liar has no worth. Face that. You say that I throw people off my list who disagree with me. In the 5 years I have been running ReformNYS, I have thrown 5 people off the list. Several years ago, one swore and cursed list members constantly and refused to stop, so I removed her. I got rid of three a month ago when TeaNY orchestrated lying attacks on me on ReformNYS and refused to stop until I threatened legal action for slander. I had enough of them as they were liars. You know what I think of liars. Don’t you? The fifth was you, at the behest and urging of Rus Thompson. I can only guess why he wanted you off that list so much. Maybe he just wanted to cause further enmity between us, between the Truth and a lie.

Again, with the list. I would love to see the “slander” that was allegedly published on an online forum, rather than spoken. I don’t give a crap about your list, except insofar as I get to read the nonsense you – and the small handful of people who still align themselves with you – write.

You whined for a while to TeaNY, I answered you and them together, I crushed your every whimper, I challenged you to a debate which you refused, and then I felt sorry for you because you had nothing to say and I let you back on. That was my mistake.

“Let me back on” to what? I don’t engage in debate or otherwise post to your Google group. I have no idea when or to whom I “whined” or “whimpered”, but I certainly didn’t do it to Rus or anyone else. Not about you, for sure. I’m a liar? In what way? What have I posted that’s false? Nothing. Not a single thing. It just sucks for you that no one takes you seriously, you can’t get TV time like Jim or Rus, and you’re basically a joke.

Also, I never saw a challenge to a debate (mostly because I don’t obsess about you the way that you believe), but my God, why would I waste my time? What is there to debate, precisely?

I thought you had some decency. I have learned since then that you have none. You cannot compete with me. You are small minded, unkind, and full of hatred. What could possibly have caused a human being to become so miserable and so full of negativity, so contemptuous of life, and of a humanity which seeks to be free? You do not deserve freedom because you abuse it in order to continue your lie. You know what I think of liars. You are fortunate that I am a compassionate person. I will say no more.

The indecent accusing me of indecency. I’m not trying to compete with cretins. I’m trying to educate people and expose you for the small-minded, wrong, attention-craving ignoramus you are.

    Quite a coalition Jim O has put together. I think Coniglio should head the minority outreach effort for TPC:

    “Slacking is now in the genes of the people who have been on welfare for 3 or 4 generations or more and these people are now, for all intents and purposes, societally worthless, ineducable and probably beyond redemption. Yes, they are different because they have been bred to do nothing but slack and vote for Democrats by their slavemasters Jackson, Sharpton, Farrakhan, Reid, Kerry, Kennedy, the Clintons, etc.” (From Reform NYS)

    And I guess Rebmann, whose take on the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, was, “Well, no one forced them to work there right?”, could be in charge of worker recruitment?

    I see big things ahead for the Coalition.

      let’s not forget the other side of this ridiculous “movement”: rus thompson. he turned the tea party from a bad movement to a bowel movement. thompson, a racist right wing nutcase is seeing the whole wny tea party arrangement grenade itself right in their face. let’s be realistic though, thompson is no libertarian. he’s lower than that. lower than a snake’s ball bag. look at that picture of him shaking karl rove’s hand and smiling, with the caption “karl you magnificent bastard”.

      not to offend Rob, but our President felt that men and women who volunteer to fight wars for the United States should pay their own medical expenses. Yet we pay medical expenses for millions that do nothing and contribute nothing to our Society.

      I once worked in an independent drug store in Louisiana. 4 women of the same family came in one morning–a 60 year old woman, a 40 year old, a 20 year old, and a 16 year old girl all with welfare Rx’s. The Pharmacist only got paid 5.00 instead of his normal 9 dollar fee to fill welfare Rx’s—he asked them if work was some kind of allergy in their family and threw them out, told them to go to Wal-Mart as he didn’t want their business. Kinda shocked me actually.

    People read Google groups? Seriously? Aren’t those for guys who can’t afford a $10 domain registration and $15/month web hosting fee?

    I have not initiated anything.
    Not once. Ever. Shall I post
    All the e-mails with the dates and times on them? If I do,
    I will post
    EVERYTHING. Do you get it yet?

    Shall I name that person
    or should I continue to be discreet? I am
    a little more mature than you
    so I shall remain discreet.

    You have no
    reason, therefore, to involve
    yourself in these things. Please, do yourself
    a favor and stay out of it because
    I am really not going to hold back
    anymore.

    I would have a whole lot
    more respect for you if you did not allow yourself to be
    used so willingly.

    Sometimes, secrecy is good,
    isn’t it? It will come out
    later, however. I promise all of you.

    Yes, we have had many traitors
    and liars in our midst, and I will
    number among them several with whom I was very close and
    whom I cared about very much. One woman in particular,
    formerly my closest ally,
    has spread so much venom about me
    that I wonder that I can still walk.

    In short, my conscience is clear and I will
    say this clearly before God.

    – from “Ode to Mike Madigan”, by the Victorian poet Allen Coniglio; full text (all 4,000 words!!) available at the ReformNYS list-serve.

    You know what they say about the similarity between fighting on the Internet and running a race in the Special Olympics, right?
