Left Bias is Right

You've gotta love good ol' fashioned yellow journalism (see the end of this post). Yesterday, Sue Fox of the L.A. Times wrote an article regarding the L.A. County Board of Supervisors meeting. In it she quotes Gloria Molina as saying, "There's no way we're going to please this crowd." As if this were some small, isolated faction of the Los Angeles population. News flash, Gloria: This Crowd is your constituency. This Crowd is Los Angeles. But, it gets better.

Yvonne Burke, after calling the meeting "a religous frenzy", said, "I'm not going to lower myself to talk to a group of people like this. I don't have to be harrassed." She goes on to say in her brilliant and highly educated rhetoric, "This is as close to the Inquisition as we have seen in the 21st century." All I can say is: Really Yvonne? Really?

And on to dear Zev. He went on to chastise the citizens in the room, saying he was incensed by being called "anti-Christian." Liberals hate the truth. Case in point.

I hope you all realize that these leftist elitists are full of hate for you and your value system. They have nothing but disdain for you and believe you're a bunch of racist, bigoted idiots. That is exactly why they will not let this go to the ballots. You won't vote their agenda. Please email each one of them and express your outrage over their cavalier misuse of the authority they've been given, by us. Let them know that if they do not overturn their judgment, you will do all within your power to see them taken out of office. They are our representatives; not the ACLU's marionettes.

Well, I can't just end it without one other slam on the L.A. Times. Here are the pictures they published next to the article about the meeting. They make us look like a bunch of crazed lunatics because they offered no explanation to why these people's hands were up. For all we know, they're about to handle snakes and drink poison. Keep reading if you want to see them back peddle and to get the supervisors email addresses.


And this was the only poster with the cross on it. They want to make this look like a crazy, right-wing conspiracy. There were signs there made by Jews and Buddhists, but somehow those didn't develop right, or something to that effect.


Here's what the LA Times printed after getting loads of angry emails, I'm sure:
FOR THE RECORD: Protesters at meeting —In Wednesday's California section, a photo showed people waving their hands in the air at a Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors meeting at which the removal of the cross from the county seal was being discussed. The caption said that many in the crowd were showing their approval for comments made by audience members who opposed the board's vote to replace the cross with other images. It should have pointed out that Supervisor Don Knabe, in an effort to reduce noise, asked those supporting a speaker to wave their arms in the air rather than clap or make other noises.
~Good job guys. Way to be profession from the get-go.

Here are the emails I promised:
Gloria Molina: molina@bos.co.la.ca.us
Zev Yaroslavsky: zev@bos.co.la.ca.us
Yvonne Burke: burke@bos.co.la.ca.us

Thank Don Knabe and Michael Antonovich for standing up for the cross:
Don Knabe: don@bos.co.la.ca.us
Michael Antonovich: fifthdistrict@bos.co.la.ca.us

And while you're at it, email the LA Times about their outrageous selection of photos for their coverage of this event. Go here and fill out their form: http://www.latimes.com/services/site/la-contactus,0,3944908.htmlstory

As our leaders for "We the People" you people lost my respect for not respecting us. LEAVE OUR SEAL ALONE! Hypocrites! You'll get ride of our tiny cross but will leave in the big Roman goddess Pomona! Why? Is it because Pomona is dead and JESUS the Christ is alive!!!
