“Censorship” Crybabies

This is a minor issue, but it illustrates how out-of-touch with reality are the motley crew who present themselves as the genuine Voice of the People of Anaheim.

Jason Young, who decamped for the Golden Hills section of Fullerton several months ago, posted an item on his Save Anaheim blog accusing Anaheim Councilwoman Kris Murray of “censorship,” claiming she blocked “Anaheim activists” from posting on the popular Anaheim Hills Buzz Facebook page.

Where does one begin to address such unreality?

First, what really happened:  Steve McKay, who runs something called the Anaheim Canyon Community Coalition and its associated Facebook page, posted a political video (the Murray-Tait face-off on SoCal Insider) on Anaheim Hills Buzz.

if you haven’t been to Anaheim Hills Buzz, it is a popular FB page where people post things such as recommendations for a good contractor or if they’re looking for a handyman or about a community event. It is a community-oriented site that is very non-political page due to desires of the proprietor of the page and those who populate it.

The proprietor of Anaheim Hills Buzz eventually removed the video, which didn’t sit well with the McKays. At this point, it bears mentioning that the Anaheim Canyon Community Coalition is a de facto Tom Tait re-election committee; nothing wrong with that, but it is what it is and underscores the irony of the criticism from Jason Young and the McKays that Anaheim Hills Buzz wants to remain non-political. Here’s what Rose McKay posted on the ACCC FB page (I have removed their photos from their comments per their request):

Here’s the whinier complaint from Mr. McKay:

Steve Mckay complaining - Copy

Sheesh. Cry me a river.

It’s kind of hilarious to read the moaning that they were “only” posting neutral information, blah, blah, blah – not to mention hypocritical. it’s even more ridiculous for Mr. McKay to accuse anyone of being biased, given that his FB page tilts so far in one direction that it is horizontal.

Earlier this year I posted one item on the McKay’s Anaheim Canyon Community Coalition Facebook page – an innocuous, very positive announcement from Kris Murray about a proposed home improvement fee holiday. One day later, it was removed and I was booted from the ACCC’s Facebook page. In other words, I was “censored”!!

That’s fine. It’s their Facebook page. But it’s a little much to see them huffing and puffing that they aren’t being allowed to transplant their political activism onto someone else’s Facebook page, and applying to that person a standard to which they are unwilling to hold themselves. It’s very unkind.

Also, the fantastical claim that Kris Murray is controlling who can and can’t post on Anaheim Hills Buzz vividly illustrates how certain voices in Anaheim civic affairs view the local political landscape through a lens that is distorted by a conspiratorial, almost paranoid mindset. It isn’t rational to believe that Kris Murray actually has the interest, let alone the time, to track and control who is posting on a deliberately non-political community Facebook.

  1. Resident in Anaheim Hills

    I have not ever seen Kris Murray post on this page until a few days ago when she politely responded to some vicious comments from people who are clearly in Mayor Tait’s camp. This site was formed as a community forum and not a political site. The McKays are being very hypocritical to attack the Buzz site and it’s admin policy. Sounds like sours grapes because no one is interested in their vicious and bais posts on their own site.

  2. Mayor Tait’s tribe gets crazier by the day. Jason Young, Cynthia Ward, Los Amigos, and now this crazy group accuse Kris Murray of controlling the actions of everyone from her colleagues on the council, to the owners of the Register, to the business community, neighborhood leaders and now this community Facebook page. This is turning into a modern day witch hunt. Give us all a break and please – Mayor Tait, the civility of your supporters begins with you. Stop talking about kindness until you are willing to lead with kindness.

    Rescue BononbosEvict Latino Gangbangers and Graffiti Vandals

    Bonobos are peaceful great apes. Bonobos, smaller than their cousins the chimpanzees, live in packs of 100 and are only found in one country, the Democratic Republic of Congo. Bonobos share 98% of the same genetic makeup with humans. A notable difference is, in the Bonobos community, harmonious coexistence is the norm.

    Bonobo populations declined from 200,000 in 1976 to 100,000 in 1996 and with less than 10,000 today are projected to drop to 4,000 by 2030. If we take no action Bonobos will be extinct while Latino gangbangers and graffiti vandals will overwhelm the planet.

    In contrast to the male dominated criminal culture of Latino gangbangers and graffiti vandals in Anaheim, Bonobos society is peaceful and powered by females. Bonobos are loving, caring and compassionate and Bonobos males are very polite unlike Latino gangbangers and graffiti vandals who are aggressive and nasty and sells drugs in the alley and wave illegal firearms at police at 9:45 at night.

    Bonobos in captivity have learned to use human language unlike Latino gangbangers and graffiti vandals who flunk out of Anaheim High School and use gangbang gibberish.

    Bonobo Females migrate to other groups when they reach puberty eliminating the chance for incest and this increases genetic diversity whereas incest is prevalent among females and their Latino uncles as reported by Mrs. Contreras’ daughter Lisa Herrera and this decreases genetic diversity in Anaheim which breeds defective character and forms the psychological basis for gangbanging and graffiti vandalism in Latinos in Anaheim.

    Our sibling species the bonobo is facing extinction. We humans have a responsibility to do everything we can to protect them. The Bonobo Conservation Initiative needs our help. Log on to bonobo.org. For mentally incompetent Caucasians like Mr. Fitzgerald and intellectually defunct Latinos like the Latino Mr. Fitzgerald John Leo’s, That’s b o n o b o .o r g.

    Latino gangbangers and graffiti vandals in Anaheim need our help too. We humans have a responsibility to arrest, legitimately charge, heavily fine and sweep Latino gangbangers and graffiti vandals and their culpable Latino parents as soon as possible.
