Facts/Any Mouse Fires Back

re: The following was circulated over the weekend to Kootenai County Republicans by Any Mouse (aka Facts). You’ll see he distorts what happened to him recently. He was given the boot for not following directions to post his question to the appropriate place and being indignant when directed to do so.

“Today’s editorial claims that the GOP is wrong to object to the club and wrong to suggest that a “NO” vote on the levy is an appropriate protest. In fact, the SR says the GOP ought to APPLAUD the formation of the Gay-Straight club.

“On the editorial blog you can post your comments and see the Aryan Nations comparison: To post comments regarding the Pachyderm = Aryan Nations/Nazi story, go here. To comment on the editorial, go here.

“You may remember that Steve Smith (the SR Editor in Chief who supervised the online entrapment of Jim West) based his OUTRAGE about former Mayor West on the fact that his ‘victims’ were teenage adults. He was OUTRAGED. Instead of outrage at teenage children being exposed to, and even encouraged by these clubs to ‘explore’ an alternative and illegal ‘lifestyle’, Mister Smith’s editorial page salutes them!

“Since I tried to hold the SR accountable for that hypocritical position, I have been banned from posting on their blog. (BTW the SR claims that part of its ethical duty is to ‘be accountable and responsive’ to its readers. I guess that is only when we agree with them.)

“Please take a moment to read both the editorial as well as the odious blog claim of moral equivalence between the Pachyderm Club and the Aryan Nations and leave appropriate commentary. On the Spokesman-Review Blog “HBO” the claim has been made that the Pachyderm club is equivalent to the Aryan Nations and, well read for yourself: (PS – go and comment if you’d like. The ‘open minded’ editor has banned me for asking questions about the editors he doesn’t like.)
