Palm Beach Democrat Official Goes On Rant Against Combat Veteran, Calls Him ‘Traitor’

She lost her mind.

Published

An elected official in Palm Beach is under fire after a horrific Facebook rant, in which she degraded a military combat veteran.

“On July 16, 2018, a local elected official from the Palm Beach Soil and Water Conservation Board of Supervisors viciously attacked a US military veteran using derogatory, divisive, and unprofessional language on social media; that elected official is Vice Chair Patricia “Pat” Edmondson,” wrote Michael Barnett, Chairman Republican Party of Palm Beach County on Facebook. “Such behavior by a public official cannot be tolerated.”

Edmonson’s comments were directed towards James Plowman, a combat veteran.

“I don’t bother with traitors,” she wrote in one comment. “Do your dead brothers ever visit you in your dreams and ask you why you’ve turned your back on them? Does it wake you up with your heart pounding? Are you disoriented? Do you smell the rotting flesh of those you’ve betrayed? You’re a traitor. Live with it.”

Not that Democrats have ever respected our fine military service members, but this has to be a new low.

Another post from Edmonson suggests that Plowman has an “untreated traumatic brain injury.”

Edmonson is listed as a Board Member of the West Palm Beach Democratic Club and was a volunteer leader in the Palm Beach County “Hillary for America” campaign, according to Biz Pac Review.

Barnett posted a handy screenshot showing all of Edmonson’s vile comments:

“Differences in political opinion should be discussed with more diplomacy and mutual respect than Ms. Edmondson displayed towards Mr. James Plowman, a military veteran,” he wrote. No one, whether a veteran or a private citizen, should ever be treated so contemptuously by an elected official.”

Barnett called for local Democrats to disavow Edmonson.

“In addition, Ms. Edmonson should apologize to all veterans who have faithfully served this country – the men and women who sacrificed so much deserve better.”

City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”

There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.

Published

on

The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”

“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.

Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.

The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.

Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”

Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.

Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
