A vicious attempt to censor and silence Santa Ana residents was defeated last night as Art Pedroza was removed as a moderator on the Santa Ana Citizens Yahoogroups. The Yahoogroups owner made itÂ HERE.Â official It all began earlier this week when I posted a link to my Liberal OC post on El Sol Academy. What followed were personal attacks by Orange Juice bloggers Sean Mill and Art Pedroza, who have been stalking myself and other Liberal OC bloggers for over a year now. You can read their attacks HEREÂ and HERE. I was not allowed to let them go unanswered and moved to defend myself with this comment:
Art, are you really going to go there about who victimized who?www.claudiogallegos.com and proudly claimed in an e-mail to “own my ass.” Will you explain now why you did that even though I had nothing to do with the transaction of www.artpedroza.com?
YOU are the one who went around town telling people I was an alcoholic.
YOU are the one who went and fed Sean Mill and Paul Lucas my past financial difficulties when I entrusted you as a friend. And you did it only because I did not return to blog for you.
YOU are the one who went and bought
YOU are the one who sent me a text threatening to “destroy” my career. It is available for viewing if anyone wishes to see it.
Suddenly I am the bad guy. You are the scumbag to end all scumbags Art. Yes I did send your info out after you did that to me. People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. By the way, good luck on August 3rd in court Art. Wish I could be there, but I will be on a wonderful family vacation. Bet you wish you could afford one right now. TTFN- Tah Tah for Now.
BTW people, his foreclosure auction has been delayed to August 26th, if you are interested in buying a nice home in Park Santiago.
Within moments, my defense was deleted from the Yahoogroups and my privilages were limited to where Art Pedroza had to approve any posts I did. I made several attempts to re post my defense. At one point, another moderator did resorte the post only to have Art delete it again, despite the fact that I broke no terms of service and did not libel Art Pedroza. Thanks to several supportive Santa Ana residents, the owner of the Yahoogroups, Â Paul Cook-Giles has now revoked Art’s privilages as a moderator. Thank you Paul, I know you are a busy person and did not need to deal with this drama. Unfortunately, with crazy stalkers like Art Pedroza and Sean Mill, we have to put up with their attempts to silence anyone they disagree with.
With Art Pedroza now running for school board, is this what we can expect if he is elected, silencing and stalking teachers, employees and constituents who may disagree with him. Will he have his “enforcer” Sean Mill going up to dissenters and threaten to “break their f_cking neck” like he did to Matt Cunningham? What happened yesterday was a victory against censorship, and a victory for free speech. It also gave a scary portrayal of the kind of city government envisioned by NAMBLA PromotingÂ Art Pedroza, Sean Mill and their allies on the City Council.
