IN Placer County in 2020 – Three School Boards turned from Dem/Squish R majorities to solid R majorities. It appears that the Sacramento Bee is enraged by this. 2021 has seen a “columnist” from the Sacramento Bee who is fresh out of the People’s Republic of Davis on the dope rhyme. She has unloaded her vitriol on several local electeds in Placer County and has been seen at board meetings trolling for people to attack.
These are the sorts of things the misguided people on the right should be focused on. The Communists in Sacramento and their whores in the Sacramento Bee know 100% who the enemy is.
The Sacramento Bee penned an article recently that tied the Proud Boys and Militias to parents protesting at school board meetings. 30 years ago when my wife was a journalism student, this practice was called juxtaposition and was regarded as an unethical practice.
Ryan Sabalow – one of the Bee reporters is from Shasta County and I first met him when he worked for the Redding Record Searchlight. I do not know this leftist cheap shot artist, the Sabalow I knew was a good reporter, but that is not allowed in today’s media. Further, anyone that calls Shasta Supervisor Leonard Moty a conservative must be a blithering idiot or a product of China.
In case you have any doubt as to the Bee’s agenda – take a look at this section of the article:
From Modesto to Placerville, Sacramento to Oroville to Redding, the dangerous, conspiracy theory-driven spirit behind the deadly Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riots has spread across California as far-right extremists and anti-government activists mobilize to disrupt the work of local elected officials. Local government and school board meetings have turned into tedious and contentious slogs filled with hours of public comment as extremists shout and ramble on, spewing misinformation and sometimes threatening public officials.
Got it? Anyone speaking out is now part of January 6th.
But wait – there’s more:
Central to many of these efforts: Christian church leaders, including many who have boasted about defying public health orders and made a show of doling out exemptions for people who won’t take the vaccine. In some cases, churches have spearheaded conferences riddled with prominent conspiratorial figures. Some say they are organizing to “take back” the power.
The Bee has always hated the Church and when given a chance to smear the Church with other groups, they could not help themselves.
Also notice the lack of Bee coverage about BLM, ANTIFA and other far-left groups. I don’t recall Act-Up, the Earth Liberation Front, or other violent enviro groups making the pages of the Bee… just angry parents and people angry about the policies of the Bee’s fellow leftists in California Government. This is why I refer to the Sacramento Bee as a whore for the left.
What makes this moment particularly dangerous, experts who study political violence and anti-democracy movements say, is that right-wing activists are using misinformation — about public health, school curriculums and elections — to gain traction. This is not just routine conservative organizing, said Lindsay Schubiner, a program director at the Western States Center, an Oregon-based nonprofit that promotes equity and counters white nationalism. It’s a confluence of “bigoted and anti-democracy groups” working to undermine basic institutions.
Please note that the Western States Center is a far-left organization routinely discredited for leftist smears, similar to the Southern Poverty Law Center. It makes perfect sense that a rag like the Bee would go to them for a quote.
I am going to finish with a large quote from the Sacramento Globe by Katy Grimes:
“MORE EXTREME THAN THE TEA PARTY” the Bee subhead says. How “extreme” was the Tea Party – that “non-partisan grassroots organization of individuals united by core values derived from the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States of America and the Bill of Rights as explained in the Federalist Papers,” fighting excessive government spending and taxation?
“What makes this moment particularly dangerous, experts who study political violence and anti-democracy movements say, is that right-wing activists are using misinformation — about public health, school curriculums and elections — to gain traction,” the Bee said.
This is not just routine conservative organizing, said Lindsay Schubiner, a program director at the Western States Center, an Oregon-based nonprofit that promotes equity and counters white nationalism. It’s a confluence of “bigoted and anti-democracy groups” working to undermine basic institutions.
It’s curious that the Bee chose this non-profit, whose board members include an attorney with the Southern Poverty Law Center, a self-described “social justice agitator, cultural sexologist, and public/sexual health educator,” and a member of the PLAN Action Fund board, which “Organizes people to use our collective leverage for social justice.”
“Oregon has faced political violence and attacks on our democracy throughout its history from bigoted and anti-democratic movements,” the Western States Center says.
But ignore what’s happening in Portland… residents are fearful of going to the “trashed” downtown. A tourism report by Travel Portland found that people don’t want to travel to Portland because they associate the city with homelessness, homicide, and civil unrest. “Because of group cancellations stemming from the pandemic, homeless, and downtown riots, tourism jobs in the metro area have dropped by 10,000 from 36,000 in 2019,” Oregon Catalyst just reported.
This is a perfect storm fomented by media, organized leftists, shadow government NGOs and non-profits, and government: Call parents “terrorists,” while defunding local police. This won’t end well.
The Globe reported on this shift away from fully-funding Sacramento’s police department in October 2020:
The Sacramento City Council voted unanimously to pass a “public safety” resolution, but there is little safety involved. The resolution is intended to officially redefine public safety — Sacramento Police Department, Sacramento Fire Department, and Emergency Medical Teams — to include what the city calls “youth-prevention services” such as arts programs and health food programs, and other “community outreach programs.”
Even with all of the data and statistics of a stunning crime spike in the Capitol City, instead of beefing up the very effective Sacramento Police IMPACT Team and the gang enforcement unit, Mayor Steinberg chose to offer concierge services to “the underserved,” and “unhoused.”
“The community engagement team organizes residents through civic engagement to ensure they have access to resources and opportunities provided by the city of Sacramento. The engagement team is the direct liaison between the community and the mayor’s office, and its focus is on reaching the underserved.”
The City already has mental health and homeless outreach units with the Sacramento Police Department, who are trained to deal with these unique issues – unless they’ve already been defunded.
The source articles follow:
The Bee has lost a ton of subscribers in the last decade. The Paper is a shadow of its’ former self. Instead of following proven principles of marketing, they double down on the very far-leftist ideology that cost them tens of thousands of subscribers. This is the body politic of 2021.
