As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach.

Police Chief Sent A Message

DOUCHE BAG MARK KESSLER
UPDATE

In a follow-up to our blog regarding asshat police chief Mark Kessler, and his rage against the "libtards" - via several YouTube videos- now comes the rest of the story:

The Pennsylvania police chief who made a profanity-laced videos while firing machine guns and ranting about liberals has been suspended without pay for 30 days.

After a 55-minute executive session, the Gilberton Borough Council voted 5-1 on Wednesday to suspend Chief Mark Kessler for using “borough property for non-borough purposes without prior borough permission” by using machine guns and other weapons in his YouTube videos. Kessler had donated the weapons to the borough earlier in the year.

In online videos posted in July, Kessler had used profanity to berate “libtards” and suggested an armed rebellion against the government.

According to WFMZ, Michael Morrill, executive director of the liberal group Keystone Progress, delivered a petition with 20,000 signatures to the council on Wednesday demanding that Kessler be fired.

WPMT reported that gun-right activists — many of them armed — showed up to support Kessler.

“Why do you hate freedom?” Hecklers yelled at Morrill. “Liberal lies!”

“I make no apologies and I have no regrets,” Kessler told reporters after the meeting, adding that he accepted the decision and looked forward to returned to work “30 days from tonight.”

But following the meeting the suspended police chief posted a message to his website accusing council members of taking part in a conspiracy to fire him.
“COUNCILMAN ERIC BOXER (D), COUNCIL PRESIDENT DANIEL MALLOY (D), MAYOR, MARY LOU HANNON (R) are going to have me terminated during this unjust thirty day suspension!” he wrote. “Councilman ERIC BOXER (DEMOCRAT) leading the charge for termination by orders from MAYOR MARY LOU HANNON ( REPUBLICAN ) ALONG WITH COUNCIL PRESIDENT DANIEL MALLOY ( DEMOCRAT ) ARE conspiring behind closed doors for full termination, they needed to suspend first to allow themselves time to look for or make up any reason or lie.”

The State Police were expected to serve the borough residents until Kessler returned to duty.

Having signed the petition myself to oust this douche bag, 30 days is not long enough! Let's make sure this hillbilly town in Pennsylvania, and this right wing nut job, grasp the concept that we will not tolerate this crap, not in this state, not in this country! These actions are not tolerable in anyone, but especially someone who is supposed to stand to protect and serve all!
