Thanks to Liz for alerting me to the recent obscenity from the Sterling supervisor, in which he rants about the Board of Supervisors supposedly “punishing” business leaders:
The pursuit of profit and prosperity is what makes America a great nation.
To attack free market leaders and business spokesman in Leesburg– our local seat of government– or on Wall Street– is an attack on all our freedoms..
..[T]his board has ochestrated and frequently hosted assaults in public on business leaders and spokesmen and spokesladies who simply come and give professional written testimony about what other business leaders think or say.
Top business leaders have been brought into the public gallows and condemned by members of the Loudoun County board of supervisors by name and accused of crimes, undue influence and illegal acts on a routine basis.
“Top business leaders” like OpenBand spokesman Ben Young, perhaps? He does seem intent on removing any obstacles – like competition – to his company’s “pursuit of profit and prosperity.” The rant is followed by this, about the “top business leaders” who have donated to Eugene’s campaign: “These donors and their companies have been generous on the record and make a very big difference.” Indeed.
Translation: “I get piles of cash from OpenBand because they expect me to vote in favor of their lifetime monopoly franchise on cable services in Broadlands. That’s exactly what I’m going to do. If you complain about it, I’ll just say that you hate capitalism.”
This obscene gesture directed at the rule of law (not to mention the free market) is consistent, at least. We’re talking about someone with the chutzpah to wail to his donors that he was attacked by “homosexual activists” and beaten with a rock – send money! – in his Falls Church office one night:
I’ve been putting off sending you this message for a while because I didn’t want to worry you.
But late one night while sorting through pro-family petitions from supporters like you a thug crept in through a door, threw a blanket over my head and pummeled me with a rock.
Thankfully, one of my volunteers heard when I yelled for help. I thank God when he came running into the room, this goon was startled and ran off. I wasn’t seriously hurt.
I’ve gotten death threats before — nearly two dozen this year alone — and I never take them lightly. But when they go beyond threatening and actually try to kill me, it’s a whole different story.
There’s more my friend…
No police report has ever been filed, of course.
What a pathetic little excuse for a man. Contact Al Nevarez to help keep Eugene’s ineffective whining in Falls Church.
