Preaching to the choir


I’ve been preaching (perhaps to the choir) on this page since April that Tan Nguyen is out of touch with the constituents of the 47th Congressional District. And since April, we’ve had Tan Nguyen supporters coming to this site to call me a “communist” or a “racist” or to call me “dumb” and “stupid” or to leave some other crude comments.

I’ve photographed the Tan Nguyen signs all over the district where people have voiced their opinions about Tan’s out of touch stance on the issues, and I’ve just imagined that Tan was sitting in his Main Street office, unaware that there were even people living in the district.

Tuesday, however, I was talking to a friend who happens to be a young republican (yes, liberals can be friends with conservatives…as long as we avoid discussing capital punishment, gun control, abortion, the separation of church and state, and labor unions, we’re fine). My friend was telling me that Tan Nguyen’s campaign manager Ryan Flynn talked at Monday’s Young Republican meeting about the constant vandalism the campaign sees on these signs.

A Tan Nguyen supporter said to me a few weeks ago “if criminals that write on people’s political signs are against Tan, that’s good.”

Which is just another out-of-touch reply. If your candidate is so lousy that you’ve got people in the streets writing messages on your signs (not destroying or removing the signs, but actually contributing to the message), your future looks grim.

Again, I don’t support anybody defacing a Tan Nguyen sign. If you really want to send a message to the Nguyen campaign, go walk precincts for Loretta. Call the Re-Elect Loretta Sanchez office and tell them you want to volunteer: 714.839.4431

    I love how this is news on your website. It is quite clear you are the one behind this vandalism. Why do you find it necessary to destroy his signs? Is this how Loretta depends on winning??? Oh wait she has illegal voting as another method…are you going to help with an illegal voting drive, as well?? Good work Mike on the betterment of “Democracy.”

    Mike “The Vandal” Lawson,

    I’m sure the person vandalizing these signs is an avid voter. Oh wait, I’m sure you do vote, right Mike? Good job “voicing your opinion” and destroying other’s property…your mom must be proud!

    What is wrong with you man. Posting complete lies about someone who wants to do good by a community is just wrong. Vandalizing posters and signs for someone who is putting their hard earned dollars into making a difference is just criminal. Your a fellon and you want you political voice to be heard?

    How hypicritical of you to compare a candidate to Hitler when you’re the one who is trying to silence free speach.

    You pathetic Mike.

    When have I compared Tan to Hitler? All that I have done is photograph the signs that people have vandalized.

    I’ve more than explained that I have never touched a Tan Nguyen sign…so for you anonymous blog commenters that insist on saying so, I’ve got nothing.

    Again, if vandals are coming out against your candidate, you’ve got some problems.

    Yeah ’cause vandals are make good voters. I’m sure on Election Day after they tag up Tan’s signs they will be sure to go to the polls. Mike you are an idiot, what happened did Mom drop you on your head a few too many times as kid? You’re doing a great job promoting this type of behavior.

    Can you post any examples that show Tan to be a racist? Or are you just using the classic liberal ploy of spreading lies.

    BTW, I thinks gays should have the same rights as all citizens, but a pillow biting fag like you deserves a curling iron in your corn hole.

    Are you still mad because Daddy didn’t hug you enough, (or maybe to much?)

    I love how you throw out in you article about your mystery repbulican friend. I have a mystery gay friend to. He says that you suck and are an embarresment to the gay community. They already have an uphill battle trying to get equal rights and now they have a used tampon like you making a negative image of the upstanding gays.

    It’s Pretty sad when gay me even call you a fag.
