Skip to comments.ZOT! Candidate Who Threatened Bush Snubbed by Dem. Underground; Portends GOP Victory in Washington!
Posted on 07/27/2004 12:44:07 PM PDT by Jack Savage
A candidate for state office in the great state of Washington appears headed for defeat even before the first absentee ballots are mailed in. (This is my first post on FreeRepublic, by the way, so bear with me if I make a few errors.)
David Blomstrom is a candidate for Superintendent of Public Instruction who issued a press release calling for the "legal or quasi-legal" execution of President George W. Bush. It was discussed in this thread http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1168765/posts
Apparently, his actions were legal, as his sites are still online. But the website may outlive Blomstrom. Check his campaign website, at http://www.edrevolt.org/:
"EMERGENCY: My name won't appear on the ballot unless I raise $1,017 for my filing fee and deliver it to Olympia by July 30! Please give me an opportunity to inject some fire into an otherwise hopeless campaign by making a contribution and urging your friends to chip in. See my Support page for more details."
Can you believe that? This nutjob lives in liberal Seattle, and he can't even find any support there! If he hasn't raised $1,000 by now, he certainly isn't going to do it in the next three days.
How hard can it be to raise a lousy $1,000? If you could find just 100 liberals who cared enough to donate $10 each, you'd have it made. There's just one problem: LIBERALS DON'T CARE.
The significance of this extends far beyond this particular candidate. No matter how twisted his ideas, no matter how disgusting his lack of patriotism, you have to admit this guy has guts. He has also obviously put a lot of work into his cause. Check out all his websites. You could spend days reading his material! This man could be a serious threat if his fellow liberals supported him.
But they don't. In fact, liberals are ignoring him, preferring to throw millions of dollars at corrupt candidates who offer nothing but rhetoric. I read somewhere on one of his sites that Blomstrom was banned from Democratic Underground!
I saw a post promoting Blomstrom on Democratic Underground's Washington State forum at http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=show_topics&forum=184 but it has been removed. They're eating their own!
Therefore, I nominate David Blomstrom as the Ralph Nader of Washington State. He won't divert any votes, because his name won't even be on the ballot, but he can be likened to the proverbial canary in a coal mine. Blomstrom's courage (or recklessness) stands in stark contrast to liberal voters who prefer gazillionaires like John Kerry to grassroots activists.
I also think we should thank Democratic Underground for censoring David Blomstrom. If we say PLEASE, we could probably get Democratic Underground to endorse George W. Bush.
Oops, I forgot - most ilberals aren't going to vote anyway so why bother? :)
welcome to free republic...
although I wonder...
BTW, do you think you could have used the DU name any LESS...
bit of overkill there
Welcome to Free Republic.
He certainly is revolting.
If he needs money he should hang out in front of the federal building when the great unwashed come down to do their silly little protests. He could make a bundle.
I smell troll
Me too. Something tells me that "Jack Savage" either knows or works for this dude's campaign.
"BTW, do you think you could have used the DU name any LESS..."
I don't understand; are you worried about giving DU too much publicity? I thought I was rubbing egg in DU's face with my post.
It's like when Clinton had his affair with Monica, we gave him more publicity than he could ever wish for. Likewise, I think this situation is hysterical and should be used to humiliate Democratic Underground.
But correct me if I'm mistaken, or if I've violated some sort of FreeRepublic convention.
hmmmmmmm.... a troll..
was wondering that myself... lets give him a chance to reply, but the post is very suspicious...
Not every newbie is a troll. They're usually pretty easy to spot and this doesn't look like one to me. Time will tell.
no "convention violation"... yet
You must understand, when you post, your very first day, we have a tendency to be a bit... leary in our acceptence of newbies..
stick around, and answer what is thrown at you, and see if you can handle the pressure :)
The language has a certain "troll accent" about it.
lets just see if he handles the pressure.. he has already responded to my first post...
but as I put in the first reply... I wonder....
Posting this means that this guy's web site is going to get some traffic, although no one would dream of giving this guy any money. Secondly, this person seems pretty familiar wuth DU and made many mentions of it in his post, almost wanting to give it a plug. Lastly, if I am contradicting myself from last point, could he be one of those people too left wing for DU? Rare I know but hey, if the NYT can write a favorable piece for GWB then anything is possible.
You wrote, "hmmmmmmm.... a troll..
"was wondering that myself... lets give him a chance to reply, but the post is very suspicious..."
A little suspicion is fine, but why such cynicism?
1. Everything I wrote is true. You can easily verify it.
2. Everything I wrote is GOOD news - or do you actually want this guy on the ballot? Are you thinking that his name in the Voters Pamphlet would discredit all the other Democratic candidates? It probably would, but I the GOP would be ahead if he wasn't in the race at all.
3. Apparently, I used a forbidden word - Democratic U... As I explained, I thought I was rubbing egg in their faces. I think you're being way too sensitive. But if there's an unwritten convention that this name shouldn't even be mentioned, don't keep me guessing - just spit it out.
Again suspicion is fine, but don't be so cynical that you see a conspiracy in good news. You bashed this guy in a very long thread - over 180 posts. Several people said they contacted the FBI and the Secret Service, but nothing happened.
Now this guy's campaign is going to be finished in just THREE DAYS.
Congratulations if you're a conservative. But yes, we don't give a flying hoot about those losers and threads about them are usually deleted.
Is using the DUh word a few too many times not a good thing??
come see for yourself :)
Good advice, and glad to hear it from one of the oldies.
