Distill Social recently tweeted out that a recall effort was underway targeting five Michigan House Democrats. The Tweet stated, “Democratically-elected State Reps are being targeted by the Michigan GOP so that they can flip the majority in the State House.” I wonder if Oakland Joe Spaulding, who is connected with Distill Social, feels the Lucy Ebel recall is just as bad. You know, county Democrats targeting a democratically-elected Republican commissioner so they can flip the power of the Board? On top of that, targeting the one minority on the Board and calling her low-hanging fruit? This shouldn’t be surprising, though. If you YouTube Oakland Joe and Ann Arbor, you’ll see how he operates, including blatant racism toward minorities there as well.
I’m just curious, does the hypocrisy come naturally, or is it learned? I listened to an interview done by my commissioner, Mr. Bergman, with Mary Ellen Murphy. If you ever needed proof that this county needs some balance to its news and journalism, look no further than Ottawa Objects member Sara Leach and her 75 plus hit pieces on the Board of Commissioners, and Mary Ellen Murphy’s unhinged recent editorial, and her interview with Mr. Bergman. Alternative news sources are clearly needed.
In the interview, after patting herself on the back for her incoherent rant posing as commentary, she [Murphy] goes on WGHN and calls whatever her and Mr. Bergman proceed to be happening, “tyranny.” I could just feel the neutrality and balance. How about you?
That aside, were Bergman and Murphy asleep throughout 2020 and 2021?
He now has the audacity to call this Board the Republican majority tyrants? The irony is that it was because of the previous Board’s tyranny that he now has to actually deal with real Republicans on the Board.
He doesn’t care about our privacy, willing to give up any data and info on us to any entity offering money. Family values? Nope. He voted against the Childhood Innocence act, siding with the Democrat. In fact he consistently sides with Democrats, now with Commissioner Zylstra and, during the campaign, he campaigned with Democrats. His support came largely from Democrats. If you saw the placement of his signs, it was clear. He does nothing but trash every conservative board member and even public commenters.
I’m just wondering why can’t he just be honest and run as the Democrat he is? Why lie and be ashamed of it? Could it be that he knows he has a better chance to win with an R by his name than a D? So he lies and claims to be a Republican? Should we start looking into this as a form of election interference or election fraud? A Democrat posing as a Republican to get Republican votes, to get elected, and then governs completely against the beliefs of real Republicans and that of his constituents?
Back to the need for more honest and real journalism in this county, if the local newspapers around home weren’t just Democrat activists in disguise, maybe the public could have been made more aware of this fraud sooner.
