Update: Despite George Rebane’s comment that “The Union has not decided to publish it,” Norm Sauer’s diatribe attacking Hillary Clinton has been published on Tuesday morning. Who can blame The Union and its management (Publisher Don Rogers and Editor Brian Hamilton)? Losing one subscriber is losing one too many. lol.
On his hard right political blog George “Raghead” Rebane is whining that The Union won’t print a column from Norm Sauer, who also happens to be one of its editorial board members. It is an inflammatory and asinine article titled “Clinton unfit to lead.”
The real question is, why is Norm Sauer on The Union’s editorial board in the first place if the newspaper won’t run his articles because they’re so inflammatory? These are the same people The Union depends on to help write its own editorials.
It is a reflection on The Union’s demographics. Over the years, the Union has “reaped what is sows,” and this is a classic example.
The Rebane “hit parade” of Russ Steele, Don Bessee, Greg Goodnight, Bill Tozer, Walt all weigh in, with the expected responses.
It reminds me of the bar in Star Wars:
