Commenters on Juvinall’s blog mock late Ambassador Chris Stevens’ alma mater

An anonymous commenter on the blog of Todd Juvinall, a former county supervisor,  no less, wrote:

“Ambassador Christopher Stevens is buried up here in Grass Valley. Also many veterans of the Civil war, and down in time to the present. All buried Patriot’s are important and Ambassador Stevens is of high importance due to the circumstances of his death.
Flowers and flags are place on the graves of the fallen and there are so many we alternate from year to year but Ambassador Stevens is number one every year since 2013. Don’t forget Ambassador Stevens.”

Yet at the same time, an anonymous commenter on Todd’s blog mocks the late Ambassador’s choice for a university education, UC Berkeley:

“Thank you, you are a true patriot and it’s too bad a beautiful city like Nevada City has become populated with “Freeze Dried” hippies from the Bay Area, graduates or attendees to Berkeley and or “Hate Asshbury District” socialist wing nuts. I spelled it correctly! The sad part is they hate you because you do not follow their beliefs. This county needs more patriots like Todd Juvinall, you and me.”

Todd’s blog is a cesspool, and this is just one example.

  1. You can’t make this stuff up!

    No one I know of on the right is as deranged as Griffith (sic) and her minions. They are the low of the low. I have heard she is coming to Grass Valley in mid June. What should people do who disagree with her depravity?”

    Memo to Todd: Griffin is on the left, not right. MrHillbilly.com

  2. Dear Todd, As for deranged rightists, how about the dude in Portland, whose outburst in court yesterday pretty well confirmed how far to the right he is. Let’s face it, any connection to Bernie is totally spurious, and Christian’s actions and throat slittings make him a total American Taliban, right down to the physical deeds.

    As for Berkeley, do you like your laptop?

    Lee Felsenstein, a fellow student of mine and at one point my employer, was the engineer who designed the Osborn I, the first luggable computer. He’s gone on to design many third world computer innovations, and oh, yes, he’s kinda a hippy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Felsenstein

    Do you like you MRI Center at the local hospital? Or any of thousands of electrical devices that are found in the main hospital? Look for H/P on them, Many H/P engineers attended Berkeley, even though Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard attended Stanford, our friendly rival. (Disclaimer, I wrote over $1,000,000.00 in grants benefiting, Lowell High School, for the William Hewlett Computer Lab, where I taught. Lowell got the least amount of money from the District, as Lowell students are the most successful in the city. Lowell is the largest feeder school to UC Berkeley, And not surprisingly, Hewlett graduated from Lowell.)

    What the hell, Mr, House Painter, “A” is for Astronaut.

  3. What does he have against Bernie? Or Hippies? Or Berkeley? I know a very conservative family who are all Berkeley grads. Guess what? They also wear (gasp!) Birkenstocks rather than the imitation ones.
