Right-wing activist Rebane latest jab: calls local Democratic women “somnambulant”

The insulting comments directed at women continues on the local right-wing blogs. George Rebane recently lobbed a personal attack at fellow local Hillary Hodge, claiming she “couldn’t connect the dots.”

Rebane hasn’t let up. Now he insults Democratic women, writing: “Here in Nevada County the usually somnambulant Democrat women have awakened and organized themselves to join their sisters in Sacramento on the steps of the capitol.  On cue local lackey leftwing blogs have gotten into gear to support the anti-Trump efforts, identifying county Republican women’s organizations as ‘stodgy’ and incentivizing ‘right-wing bullies in the local blogosphere.'”

Rebane got it wrong again — I wrote that the Republican Central Committee was “stodgy,” not the Republican Women’s Federation.

For a Ph.D Rebane has long struggled with nuances. Go figure.

  1. Trump is an emptitious empleomaniac who got elected by stroking the tarassis of the rust belt. The fact that trump and company seek to quomodocunquize from their position of power seems to be lost on alt-right cheer leaders like Rebane.

  2. I’m not a Democrat, have not nor ever will be a republican, but will support this march against tRump and all chauvinists who only like women as chattle.

  3. And it’s not just women. Now Rebane writes: “In the aggregate, Millennials lack social skills. So conclude a number of studies as reported by NPR this morning. This adds to the list of significant deficits that our new generation has demonstrated (also reported here, here, here, and here).”
    Imagine that this “get of my lawn” fellow runs a “Tech Test” for our local kiddos. Go figure!

    He also got it wrong on Sunset. The magazine named NC the No. 1 on the “best value towns” list, not the “best place to live.” https://sierrafoothillsreport.com/2017/01/04/sunset-magazine-ranks-nevada-city-1-in-its-2017-best-value-towns-list/

    1. Note the “also reported here, here, here and here.” When someone resorts to quoting themselves as a trusted source of their own statements you’re either dealing with multiple personality disorder, narcissism, or an ignorance so deep that the bottom of the pit can only be found in your dreams.

  4. Rebane is a self absorbed ahole. He left his Jeep blocking fully half of the right lane on Cement Hill while he casually checked his mail box. He has a huge area to pull off the road, but couldn’t be bothered, or perhaps he was “thinking”. I understand when one gets to a certain age it can be difficult to do two things at once.

  5. Like we should be running Doonesbury next to Crabb in the paper, we should have Thom Hartman for an hour after Rant Rocket Rebane show on KVMR. Fair and Balanced went out the window with the general manager of the station, when he put this idiot on the airwaves. After listening to Rebanes crap for 60 seconds on their way to Nevada City, the Sunset magazine reader would turn the car back down the hill. Maybe the Chamber of Commerce could do something-
