Vermont Seceshers Throw a Party to Promote Bigotry
When I first heard that the Second Vermont Republic and Vermont Commons honchos, the Dixie singin' Thomas Naylor, Rob Williams and anti-Vermont Army and Air National Guard doyenne Juliet Buck were throwing a party in the Vermont Statehouse, I wondered so how come they didn't invite me? I mean, Williams has been proposing late night trysts at various bars over the years and here's a chance for us to get it on really in public and I didn't make the list.
Perhaps the reason why is that they knew I wouldn't approve of their intent to formalize their bigotry in the seat of Vermont government, the General Assembly chamber of the Vermont Statehouse, let alone anywhere else.
For years the baas of SVR, Naylor, has promoted the lie that Jews control the U.S. government, "having a hammerlock hold over American foreign policy." You see, in Naylor's squirrelly view it's Jews that need a little push back, not the Holocaust denying scumbags that he's repeatedly agreed to be interviewed by like Victor Thorn, James Edwards and the talking heads at Iran's propaganda ministry.
But I'm getting ahead of myself here.
Naylor and three other tired old white guys got together and crafted a "Montpelier Manifesto" comprised primarily of Naylor's repetitive, cliché ridden, excessively anti-American crap. It's a lot of the same old same old that they've been unable to get traction on in Vermont since they began their campaign nearly 10 years ago. Naylor's lied repeatedly about the actual support in Vermont for his secession plan for years, first telling us that 8%, then 13% of Vermonters were buying into secesher nonsense - fact is, when Vermonters got a chance to vote on his handpicked, angry, "Israeli Mafia" hating surrogate for the governor's office, 99.24% of them voted for someone else.
Now Naylor and his "small community," as SVR co-founder Ian Baldwin calls them, of alienated clones intend to lead Vermonters into a mixed nut bag of Ron Paultardism, Jew hatred and a rainbow of conspiracies while being anti-virtually every Vermonter who isn't with them in their dogpatch of irrelevance called the "Montpelier Manifesto."
No, I'm not going to link to it but here's what these old farts, Thomas Naylor, Kirkpartrick Sale (a South Carolina delegate to the racist League of the South" front group, Southern National Congress, ), James Starkey and Charles Keil, have to say about "the Jews" within its "Document of Grievances and Abuses":
Foreign PolicySure, and playing footsie with outspoken racists like Edwards or Thorn will make you a player in the peace process, eh, Tommy Boy?
4. "The hammerlock hold of the Israeli Lobby over American foreign policy that forces us to support an Israeli-inspired war on terror against Muslims and keeps us from any real commitment to an Israeli-Palestinian peace process."
Although two thirds of Israelis oppose any attack on Iran, and tensions continue to rise between the U.S. government, and while Netanyahu's minority viewpoint continues to be marginalized, and while Americans are being murdered in the Middle East for no good reason, Naylor and his other old cranks (NB: two others unworthy of note have now signed on to the Manifesto, probably because they'd like their own failing secesher operations to get some recognition) continue to promote the (and I never use ALL CAPS) LIE that Jews control the U.S. government.
But, never to worry, tomorrow's KKKonference will approve the racist libel proposed by Naylor and the other old white men since, after all, Williams "agrees with Thomas" about the Jews and Buck is pissed at everybody.
In their press releases Williams and Buck have made a big deal out of holding their stunt in the Vermont Statehouse. Like them, Fred Phelp's gay hating Westboro Baptist Church or the reputed Vermont Ku Klux Klan would be as eligible to use the the General Assembly chamber. Yeah, the standards are that low.
Since they're having music at their anti-Vermonter klavern, here's mine:
Look for me there tomorrow. I may just "shed my skin."
