I have a lot of material to post. It might not all make it here. You might find video clips in various websites. I’ll try to provide links if that happens.
I had an idea of where to begin, but my plans were totally upended this evening when I read the newest comment on an older posting I did on LaRouche Democrat Kesha Rogers and her enviable ballot position in Fort Bend and Harris Counties.
The commenter was Kesha Rogers’ only true Democratic opponent, Doug Blatt.
Her other opponent is Libertarian John Wieder. Those two actually have more in common between each other than Blatt or the Democratic Party. Teabaggers would love it if Democrats nominated either of them.
The Blattster, as I want to call him, left a scathing comment on Kesha Rogers, all of it true in my opinion. I want to “front page” his comment here so people who don’t look at the comments can see what he had to say. Here it is pasted below verbatim:
Coming from someone who supports a candidate that says nothing about herself and only says what comes out of Lyndon LaRouche’s mouth, I will take your calling me a “party hack” as a badge of honor.
That means that I am and have been seen as the true Democrat in the race. Being a Democrat means something to people like us. People who support other Democrats, especially ones they worked hard to elect…people that share the same ideas, values, and opinions (for the most part). We don’t equate President Obama with Hitler or call for his impeachment. We don’t stand in front of public building waving pictures and chanting. We respect our President and each other.
Every time your candidate speaks, the people in the audience turn towards me and proclaim their support of me. That’s why I have several endorsements from Democratic clubs and groups that support Democrats and your candidate doesn’t.
I may be an unknown first time candidate, but I realize that when one actually gets into office, doing and saying things against your own party isn’t the way to be a success. You and others have said that I have no personality. You made that judgment from one or two early speeches when I was getting used to speaking in front of large crowds. I don’t have the chanting and yelling at the top of my lungs, annoying patrons of public buildings experience you do.
I may not be the consummate candidate yet, but I am definitely the one with the experience and temperament to do the job in Washington. How do you think the Democratic Party elected officials in Washington will treat her if she took office? She would get absolutely no support because she and the LaRouche people have shown them absolutely none.
If you are true Democrat out there reading this, tell your friends and family to do their research before they vote. I am confident in the result.
I also want to let you know that Doug Blatt’s speaking style in front of large audiences seems to have advanced to the next level in the short time that I have been watching him speak. As I mentioned, I videoed all of the speakers at the Fort Bend Democrats’ Candidates’ Forum, and The Blattster showed up and stayed to the bitter end.
Kesha Rogers, however, was not there. She was given the boot by the Club’s Executive Director who made the correct executive decision that Rogers is guilty of the crime of Speaking While Influenced by Lyndon LaRouche (SWILL).
That crime is punishable by permanent exile.
Here is a short video clip I shot of Doug Blatt who had to keep it short because as he spoke the librarians were coming in with spiked clubs ready to enforce their sacred rule: Closing Time.
Now we have to see if we can get him to do that gravelly thing with his voice that Nick Lampson was so good at. You know, the voice thing that got Howard Dean in so much trouble all those years ago.
