Greens Take A Beating
Looks like the Green Party got a verbal lashing by the speaker at yesterday's Republican Women's Federation meeting at the Red Lion in Eureka. Author Holly Swanson blasts the Greens as being akin to socialists or communists and suggests much of the environmental stuff being taught in our schools is part of a broader agenda.
Our very own Dennis Mayo showed up for the meeting. I'll agree with him when he said that, while the earth may be sacred, "so’s our personal liberties and our property rights".
Green Party Chairgal, Dana Silvernale, couragiously entered the lion's den and sat in on the event finding herself disturbed by what she was hearing. She felt it must be the result of some misunderstanding saying the Greens aren't communists. I found that interesting since I believe Green Party candidate for Governor last time around, Pete Camejo, has described himself as a watermelon: Green on the outside, red on the inside.
No surprise that political parties can't understand why another party sees them as the devil incarnate. The weird part is that seems to always work both ways: Those guys are evil, but we're squeeky clean. Vote for us!
