Rebane is running out of local poker pals on his blog

Our resident pseudo intellectual, hard-right activist and Simi Valley “escapee” — George Rebane — is running out of local poker pals on his blog. Five to seven poker pals is considered ideal, but George has fallen below that.

—Russ Steele, the global warming denier and friend of Dr. Anthony Watt, is no longer a local. He relocated “off the hill.”

—Rich Ulery, former chairman of the local GOP, has moved to Arizona.

—”Scott O,” who embraces George’s ignorant definition of “rag head,” has moved to Idaho.

—”Fish, who often pollinates the site with his total nonsense, never lived here in the first place.

Who of his like-minded poker pals remain? Todd, Gregory, Don Bessee, and Bill Tozer. And that’s about it.

This speaks volumes about the eroding local base of George’s like-minded compadres — set against the backdrop of an aging and declining population. Tough times!

  1. Yet they dominate and pollute The Tea Party Gazette’s comments section with their vile, diseased excrement. … The Union now depends on promoting hate and titillation to stay afloat. Quite a business plan. But then Swift never was too swift on the uptake.

      1. And interesting enough Repoza’s FB profile page is basically blank. No friends, no photos, no background. A couple timeline posts of no consequence. It does say he lives in Sacramento. Though the only reference to a Herb Repoza in Sacrament is his obituary from last April.

  2. If the deniers are still denying global warming in the face of all that is going on, then they are clueless or just flat stupid. That whole tipping point concern with the planet’s climate that was talked about decades ago seems to be happening now. CO2 levels are climbing faster and faster, weather extremes are getting more extreme. In 1960 the CO2 level was 317 ppm, now it is 415 ppm. There will still be ice in the polar regions in fifteen years, but you get how serious this is becoming. The last time it was >450 ppm there was no ice in the polar regions, at the rate it is accelerating it will hit 450 ppm in 12 to 15 years.
    Following the climate scientists on twitter the charts they are showing is getting scary, panic level scary. There is now a new term some scientists are relating to, the “Sarah Conner syndrome” from the movie Terminator 2.

  3. He really should put an add on Facebook or Craigslist.

    I have no doubt there are more than enough racist, fascist, white separatist, misogynistic, anti-intellectual, weak minded sycophants and nazi ‘fellow travelers’ out there for him to populate both his blog and his poker table.

  4. Gregory has WAY too much time on his hands. Now he thinks I’m “Rock Hunter.” No, Gregory, I happily tell you what I think to your face — and sign my name. Go fish!
