October Surprise?

I'd thought that the on again, off again secession supporter Emily Peyton, a 2014 Vermont gubernatorial aspirant, couldn't top her tone deaf solicitation of campaign support from "child molesters, murderers, violent criminals and other convicted felons" that I posted about back in June here but, in what can only be described as a self-inflicted October Surprise this month, Peyton points to a "recent mention" about her and her campaign at an anti-Semitic hate website called Veteran's Today. She provides a link to the article on the home page of her campaign website with no warning about the article being contained at a website that promotes whacked out conspiracy theories and Jew hatred, thus putting the reader one click away from such loony filth.

The article published earlier this month at VT is written by Mia Feroleto who has also been mounting a largely unsuccessful letter writing campaign on behalf of Peyton to various Vermont newspaper's Letters to the Editor pages here, here and here. A fourth letter from Feroleto here prompted this comment:
Comment to Reformer Letter
"emilypeyton=smellysatan" • a month ago
"sorry Mia but you don't know emily peyton aka smelly satan... she's been arrested for her racist assault against John Hughes, a really talented artist and musician..documented, she's also a woman who's campaign's are funded by her dad in Boston... he should be taken to task for allowing this to go on year after year year after year and the assault on ALL of us that comes with each election cycle. NPR is doing real JUSTICE by not giving a platform to her redundant and false rhetoric. It's total bs from a serial narcissist."
The publisher of Feroleto's Peyton piece is Veteran's Today's senior editor and chairman of the board, Gordon Duff, an anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist, a 9/11 Truther, a promoter of Holocaust denialism and of the claim that Julian Assange's Wikileaks is an Israeli intelligence operation. The Southern Poverty Law Center has published an extensive report on Veteran's today that can be found here . Veteran's Today provides a publishing platform for a host of well known anti-Semites like Alan Sabrosky, Gilad Atzmon, Kevin Barrett, to name only a few. One VT contributor, J.B. Campbell, who believes that Jews control the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Army, wrote:
“Since Jews control every important aspect of our lives through banking, finance, law, war, food & drugs and entertainment, we are literally floating on a reservoir of truth blocked by a dam of lies… . The Jews have poisoned our minds for a long time, certainly for all the time that we’ve been alive.”
Peyton has indicated that this may be her last campaign but that she's willing to share her expertise incompetence with anyone stupid enough to buy into her platform. She'd even school that person on how to get campaign finance funding, something that she's been unable to do for her own campaign. Only a fool would take advice from her.

I have found that liars lie from a deep sense of fear. There are numerous examples of falsehoods in this post. I can point them out, but the problem of Tom's Fear remains. Its deeper than being afraid of me, who has never been arrested by or had John Hughes arrested. For example.

And yet, despite claiming that there are "numerous examples of falsehoods" in this post, the only point you raise is in response to a claim from the comment section of the Brattleboro Reformer in a rather they said, she said way.

Significantly, you do not address the first fact, that you accept the support of "child molesters, murderers, violent criminals and other convicted felons" or the primary assertion that you wallow in the recognition that you've received at a virulently anti-Semitic website. No big whoop, huh?

Apparently, even with your limited debate experience you've learned the slippery pol trick of evading the question on the table and calling your critics liars without citing a single lie that they themselves have written. Figures.

BTW, are you still a secessionist or are you now weaseling on that also?
