TFW they’re still doing it: squeeeeee the local Republican autodefenestrations continue!

Kirby Delauter’s Facebook page has it all. Man these people are excellent at making themselves look insane on social media. This would be a good time to remind everyone not to vote for Cindy “F Your Feelings” Rose.

This is only the beginning. It goes on and on…and on…and on…

Honestly, there is so much packed into this Mexican standoff, it is hard to limit ourselves. It’s a public post on Kirby’s page, if you’d like to do your own rubbernecking.

Danny Farrar immediately rebuts, in a post approximately as long as that horrible David Foster Wallace novel that we have mercifully forgotten the title of, and things go downhill from there.

You mean to write, “…only Kathy and me…” Oh toss it all, we aren’t going to start editing for another one of these dingbats.

 

He’s still not done.

You can see how the factions are aligning. It’s a shame, really, that Danny (according to some people we know) used to slobber all over Billy and Kirby at SoldierFit, to the point that the egregious sycophancy caused them to discontinue patronizing Danny’s business and NOW LOOK! Was it worth it?! Now he’s in a big, undignified “you throw all your friends under the bus” spat with him. And Danny is sure not wrong here, but…this is also as undignified as a Young Family Facebook Reunion.

Is he questioning Kirby’s manhood? It kinda seems like he is questioning Kirby’s manhood…lol, we approve of this. Still, don’t vote for Danny Farrar. We have candidates who can discern a low IQ when they see it. I mean, only one of our council members has been ridiculed by the national media for his stupidity…and that one is Kirby. When you think about the superlative stupidity contest, that is pretty bad.

Oh here’s some solid evidence of the low IQ thing: Kirby’s anointed County Executive candidate in disagreement with Kirby and all his friends on their hot button issue!

It’s never too late to learn, yo…

 

And, there it is! BWAHAHAHAHAHA.

He just basically says, “What? Cut off my nose to spite my face? Why yes, I do think I will, thanks for asking!”

Seth Eisenberg chimes in to defend Kirby and chastise Danny (random thought that just occurred to us: why are grown adults named Billy and Danny in this county?). Please someone sit Seth down and explain how “you’re” is a thing. His contributions are lame, and he manages to look dumb in content, contribution, and composition.

The Cindy/Mary spat has been a wonder to behold.

Cindy Rose (Worst and Most Often Failed BOE Candidate Forever) and Mary Posey’s spat dates back to an earlier episode, which caused the Republican Club of Frederick County to lock down their page. We like to call that winning! We temporarily quarantined some terrible ideas, thereby depriving us of all the pointing and laughing that Kirby’s page has resuscitated here.

It’s amazing how she is always trying to be deliberately obtuse for the purposes of gotcha. And what a dumb argument for her to get involved in. Being disagreeable is her hobby. Like the candidate may not have been out for days on his own…oh well, whatever. We skipped all the back and forth with Danny about “binding arbitration” and whether he is with or against the firefighters and it does kind of seem like he’d rather not be for or against it. This issue has been really interesting to see from all sides.

One observation we have come away with: people we used to think were way out there don’t even crack the Top 10 Farthest Out There in This Neck of the Woods. We do apologize for our earlier harsh judgment.

Carry on fools!

 

Cindy Rose is stupid AND dangerous

There continues to be absolutely no evidence Cindy Rose has ever read a book. Maybe if she had she would be aware that “Hitler’s Brown Shirts” were not a part of a grassroots organization protesting the government, but a paramilitary government police faction that operated tippy-top down, predating Hitler, and weaponized by him against the people to the point that stuff like, oh, say…Kristallnacht happened. If you are a reader, we have a book to recommend by Erik Larson called In the Garden of Beasts that may help clarify who is a good guy and who is in charge of whom in Nazi Germany. If you are Cindy Rose, there is a chance that they are going to make it into a movie. Get a load of this:

This is really, really reaching.

Here’s a tidbit for ya: in 1920 Hitler outlined the Nazi Party’s 25 Point Plan. Perhaps a more thorough investigator would like to check those out and assess in what ways history may repeat itself. Protesters tried to shout Hitler down at *his* big rally in Munich, and they got rounded up by these Brown Shirts (a.k.a. Sturmabteilung, or maybe you’ve heard of them called the SA)!  All of the people who possess critical thinking skills are able to see the delineation here where the Brown Shirts and the protesters are on opposite sides, right?

For the lady who is not even able to lay claim to the weakest degree of verystablegenius, please note that the government leadership and the ruling party who hold power (who would that be in America right now?) and who are getting shouted at by upset citizens are all on the same side of the analogy, and the Brown Shirts act against those out of power on behalf of the government to violate their free speech. Pro tip: Cindy Rose is a dangerous idiot.

She plugs away at proving it constantly. To the point that we have ignored a lot of it lately, because frankly it gets old, but this is beyond the pale. Before you get on the Board of Education, just get an education.

Maybe ever.

But….her dignity!!!

It’s time we get back to the election, because how the hell did it sneak up on us so fast?! Today’s post is dedicated to twice defeated BoE candidate Cindy Rose.

Just this week, a second BoE forum was held, sponsored by the PTA (yeah, she didn’t show up to the first one either). She was called out on a local conservative page by someone, who has been sounding all too rational to us lately, for not showing up! Behold her reply:

Screen Shot 2018-10-11 at 4.47.46 PM

WOW!!!! So, the PTA are the mean kids?! And it’s beneath her dignity to show up at either forum to express her beliefs? She doesn’t really want to win, does she? Later, on that same thread she posts her Curriculum Vitae for the board of ed position:

Screen Shot 2018-10-11 at 4.47.52 PM
We guess she forgot to list what she would do to address these issues!

And last, but certainly not least, here’s a 3 minute video of her making public comment at the last BOE meeting:

Okay, first of all this should have been what was beneath her dignity. No law changes your beliefs! It just guarantees that you cannot discriminate against someone BECAUSE of your beliefs. Really people we don’t need a Billy Shreve -like character on the BoE. Make sure you make your voice heard on November 6.

Shall we send the truant officer to investigate?

So Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and the League of Women Voters co-hosted a forum for the Frederick County Board of Education candidates, and guess who did not show up. Cindy Rose and April Miller.

If you aren’t familiar with LWV, you should be. They are a non-partisan group that focuses on voter education. As you can imagine a nonpartisan group focusing on voter education would be a terrifying thing for anyone to involve themselves with. Especially people who are allegedly interested in education within this community. These are the sights, sounds, and smells of people who know that they have nothing to offer that stands on any merit in the marketplace of ideas, folks.

And we weren’t previously familiar with Delta Sigma Theta, but this sounds like a great organization. College-educated women dedicated to public service with an emphasis on programs that target the African American community. So, double whammy for blowing all of these great ladies off.

More about League of Women Voters: they publish the handy dandy voter guide, and what they do to accomplish that is give a series of questions to candidates and let them respond to those questions in their very own words. Then they publish those words–just what the candidate says about his or her own self–on their website. When you visit the website, it asks for your address, and then you get to choose candidates to compare for races specific to your totally address specific voting conditions. It is super cool. It is extraordinarily helpful for local races that are not covered on CNN’s traveling circus of idiot opinions or Fox News grotesque Trump petting freakshow.

The site is called vote411.org. You should use it, and you should share it with your friends, far and wide. The more people who are informed and vote, the better off and healthier our democracy is. The more people who are informed and vote in our local elections, the better off and healthier our community is. PSA: Do not vote for Cindy Rose. Just don’t do it. We have an extensive body of work detailing this, and we will be happy to refer you there.

And when you get informed about the local community, one thing you definitely should not miss is that the Mayor of Ye Olde Fredericktowne and the City of Frederick have nada nothing nyet nichts to do with funding the local school system, which is called the Frederick COUNTY Public School System for one weird reason. If you plan to vote for Kim Williams, you may wish to consider waiting for the City Board of Ed race. Good luck with that, y’all.

In other local and voting matters, we have not heard about any crazy voter suppression shenanigans around here, but you should know (and again, tell all your friends, wherever they may be) that you can check your voter registration status here. For whatever it is worth, it’s a fair point to say that every vote does matter, and if it didn’t there would not be parts of the country where people are trying to make sure they make it difficult for as many individuals as they can to be heard from at the polls.

And stick with us here for one last thing. This is very important. Know it, share it: if you show up at your polling place and are told that your name is not on the rolls, demand a provisional ballot. Even if you show up at the wrong polling place, casting a provisional ballot with an affidavit is your right.

When you only see the world in pink and blue!

It’s the first day of school, and we need to get back to concentrating on this election! Keep your eyes and ears open for forums, debates, newspaper profiles, and other meet and greets so you can get a feel for what each candidate stands for.

Let’s talk a minute about the school board election. The PTA is holding a forum on October 9th, and all but one candidate has sent in their RSVP. Can y’all guess who that may be?

Oh Dear!

We decided to look around the internet and we see that she started yet another Facebook page that has managed to garner 6 whole likes! Is she really even trying? We were comforted to see that she’s sticking to her main talking points when it comes to our transgender kids:

Screen Shot 2018-09-03 at 5.12.19 PMScreen Shot 2018-09-03 at 5.13.58 PM

End of discussion y’all!!!! We love that someone tried to push back, but NO! Cindy only sees the world in blue and pink!

SIDE NOTE: Don’t tell Cindy, but until fairly recently pink was considered to be more a boy color and blue was seen as a girl’s!

Anyhoo, she’s also not happy that Colin Kaepernick is going to be the next spokesperson for Nike. How dare he not be punished for the rest of his natural born life?!

Screen Shot 2018-09-04 at 6.27.39 AM.png

We will be looking forward to what all of our other school board candidates have to say! Happy First Day of School everyone!!!!

 

TFW the local Republicans go cannibal

You are definitely going to want to see this. Team Hogan Frederick County Edition has emerged, and since Team Hogan is code for Team Afzali (*actual Hogan endorsements ambiguous) a brouhaha has ensued on the Republican Club of Frederick County page. The principal players are One Potted Plant Enthusiast, Area Woman, #KirbyDelauter, and Our Least Favorite School Board Candidate in History (et. al. aspiring BOE idiots). All have gone Full Donner Party, and they aren’t going to wait for anyone to get cold before they roll up to the all day cray cray buffet.

Screen Shot 2018-08-04 at 1.09.22 PM.png
Although this post is principally about the epic mudslinging going on on the Republican Club of Frederick County’s page…(there are two, because of course there are; when you look at this hot mess it appears that soon each Republican will need their very own club, because otherwise they would be part of a slate that no one can tolerate)…anyway, we would be remiss if we didn’t wonder how to freeze taxes and fix infrastructure. Like that’s free. That sounds like some GWB nonsense. How “fiscally conservative” of them.

Here are some of the beautiful things that are going on for all the world to see. We can start with this announcement of our intentions:

Screen Shot 2018-08-04 at 2.05.21 PM
yah. That’s the idea.

Cindy Rose adamantly refuses to vote for Afzali and maligns anyone who appears with her as having the stench of Afzali on them. There is a mighty feud between Cindy Rose and Mary Posey on this point, because Mary Posey understands how politics works, and the bulk of these other people seemingly do not. They take Mrs. Posey’s superior comprehension personally. Dummies gonna dumb, yo.

Screen Shot 2018-08-04 at 1.25.49 PM
In Afzali’s defense (gag), it would be so easy to have a personal problem with someone who has a personal problem with everyone, and who now refuses to compromise during an election because she has a personal problem. #irony
Screen Shot 2018-08-04 at 2.15.27 PM
Guess who we specifically would not trust on the little things? If you think it is someone who didn’t take the time to read a picture book with about 45 words in it to discern whether or not it is socialist propaganda before spouting off about it, step up and collect your prize!

Kirby blames Chuck Jenkins for Afzali’s win. ICYMI Jenkins and Afzali have a difficult history, which is also fun. These people must have the best parties. Like the Palins in the neighbor’s driveway…

 

Kirby blasting off at Jenkins is the most fun we’ve had in years.

 

This dramedy between Jill King (failed aldermanic candidate from days of yore) and Seth Eisenberg (failed BOE candidate and supermoron) goes on for awhile, mostly a lot of the same. None of it surprising.

Screen Shot 2018-08-04 at 1.52.20 PM

 

Then Jill King deigns to take up the mantle of Miss Manners, and Seth Eisenberg may be a total jerk, but he isn’t wrong about the figurative running of her mouth online. So that’s too funny.

Screen Shot 2018-08-04 at 1.35.28 PM
Not really the main idea, but who is Fred Propheter’s ideal conservative?! Yikes. Incidentally, Jill is correct, they are crazy to behave like this, but please proceed, right? There’s a field day to be had.

Boy howdy. Nothing like an intramural butthurt festival to get the Local Yokel Correspondents popping our popcorn. Incidentally, we hate that word, but it always seems to be a favorite maneuver in any Frederick County Republican Online Catfight. The County Council Watch Membership has some sort of butthurt identification service, apparently, because it comes up a lot. Either that or they are as emotionally mature as the average twelve year old.

Kirby calls Mary Posey a “POS.”

Screen Shot 2018-08-04 at 1.19.38 PM
We’re always surprised when we see Mary Posey’s perspective. We thought she was wacky when it seemed like Bud Otis’s moderate politics were a personal affront, speaking of taking things personally. But today is a different day. Wow.

Oh! And then there is this! Different space, but on the same topic of cannibalism, Kirby endorses Kai Hagen over Danny Farrar! The one endorsement Kai may have preferred to skip. But oh well, right? We will all hope to see more of Kirby’s Epic Sour Grapes. Election 2018 is going to be more fun than we had hoped for!

 

 

Click, Clack, NO!

That’s what we would like to know Bessie!

In today’s edition of the Frederick News Post is a brilliant letter about how unfit Cindy Rose is for a seat on the BoE. The letter writer not only lamented Cindy’s position on transgender people, but the fact that she’s unable to take any criticism on her Facebook pages, and therefore deletes and blocks opinions that differ from her own.We previously discussed, in Part Uno of our Cindy Rose field guide, her call to action to ban the award-winning children’s book Click, Clack, Moo. In case you missed it take a looky:Screen Shot 2018-07-08 at 12.30.55 PMIf you haven’t read the book, and Cindy obviously has not, it is not teaching kids to have a temper tantrum to get what they want. The plot of the story is as follows: The cows are very cold at night and since they cannot speak English, they type a letter to the farmer asking for some electric blankets. The farmer becomes enraged and refuses. The cows then talk to the chickens, who are also very cold at night, and they also ask for blankets. The farmer again refuses, and in return the cows refuse to give the farmer the milk produced from their bodies and the chickens refuse to relinquish the eggs they laid! The cows send another letter saying that they will relinquish the typewriter in return for the blankets, to which the farmer agrees. Can you imagine the horror of teaching your children speak up for themselves when they are cold? What kind of world are we living in anyway? Cindy also wants to know if the counterpoint is being read to the poor defenseless children?

Screen Shot 2018-07-08 at 12.31.03 PM
Take note that she turned off the commenting for this post! Guess she didn’t want to hear any other sides!

Let us just imagine the counter point to this for a moment. What could possibly be the alternative to the cows and chickens not getting their blankets?

2dmp71.jpg
So many shades of wrong!

We contacted the author via Facebook about this and she was taken aback!  Her exact words after reading the above diatribe from Cindy were, “Wow…that’s a very interesting position! Only in today’s environment can typing cows become political.” Isn’t it horrible how Cindy is perverting the message of this book for her own political agenda? And lest you think this is the first time she’s advocated to remove books she hasn’t even bothered to read, check out these PIA requested emails that showed up during last election season:Screen Shot 2018-07-08 at 3.22.26 PMScreen Shot 2018-07-08 at 3.22.36 PMScreen Shot 2018-07-08 at 3.22.44 PMWe know it’s summer and you want to relax, hell so do we, but there will be no relaxing if Cindy gets on the board. We all know too well what can happen when we get complacent. Forward this, and anything else you’ve seen about her, to every Frederick voter you know. This is an easy problem to solve. #localelectionsmatter!
