Matt Cunningham, Blogger for Anaheim's Elite, Wusses Out and Deletes Post Mocking People Killed by Cops

How do you say "wuss" in "Outed Sex Abuse Victims-ese"?
If you want to know how out-of-touch Anaheim's ruling class is with the city they rule, just check out the wussiness of their hired gun.

Late last week, Matt Cunningham--the OC Scariest People 2013 honoree who outed sex-abuse victims and is nowadays paid by the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce to attack anyone who dares say something is rotten in the city--posted a horrifically offensive "story." According to Matty, he just happened to conveniently find a torn-up teddy bear and thought putting a Virgin of Guadalupe votive candle next to it constituted satire. Get it? All the recent police killings in Anaheim? Their grieving families? And how activists point to such sadness as a city gone awry? That's satire! Hardee-har-har!

It was pathetic, unfunny brain dribbles par for the Cunningham course. He lamely tried to defend the post over the weekend, going so far as to claiming he didn't know his post happened to come a day after a memorial for Caesar Cruz. Then yesterday, unsurprisingly, Cunningham wussed out and took it down. What a wuss!

You can read the original, pathetic post here courtesy of the Voice of OC, complete with Matty's increasingly desperate attempts to justify his wussiness to outraged commenters (bonus wuss points to Matty for calling our Gabriel San Román "Gabby," as a pathetic counterpoint to us and others now calling him the chavala that he is by addressing him as Matty). We would've actually had respect for Matty for once if he had kept up the blog post, as horrendous as it was--at least stick by what you write, you know? Instead--just like he did when he wussed out after outing sex-abuse victims--Matty pulled the post, proving once again what a wuss he is. And Anaheim's elites enlist this pendejo to do their dirty business?

May this episode show Orange County once and for all what we've been saying for years: Matty Cunningham is a powerless wuss who folds like the wuss that he is the moment anyone challenges him. True story: years ago, Matty and John Manly, the lawyer who decimated Matty's beloved pedophile protector, John Urell, were in the same courtroom. Neither had ever met each other before. I let one of Manly's attorneys know who Cunningham was just for shits and giggles; Manly then proceeded to introduce himself to Matty, whose look on his face suggested a sudden emptying of his bowels. What a wuss!

Well, we don't have to argue about it but (a) I know you REALLY don't like the OC GOP for various good and IMHO some bad reasons; (b) any political party that has a stranglehold on an area like the GOP has in OC for so many decades is bound to turn into a corrupt den of pendejos; and (c) it's pretty much a given that police, communities and their representatives are a lot less sensitive about the treatment, needs and concerns of residents in poverty-stricken areas where relatively new immigrants are often found. I'm not just another "ignore-the-problems-and-they'll-go-away" conservative


Actually, the GOP is less strong in the County than 1975, it takes time. Reagan won OC as 74 percent of the vote and Romney only 53 percent. The GOP in Orange County is dated to the days when everyone work for aerospace and houses were much cheaper and low poverty not as many minorities. Its going to be hard for the GOP which once command 74 percent for Reagan and went down to 53 percent for Romney to make it since the Republican In fact the Register shows most of the GOP in Orange County are middle age or elderly-prop 13 folks. The GOP is 51 percent of the population 55 and over and only 29 percent 30 and over. The GOP is much weaker in Orange County than the Democrat party is in the Bay Area. San Diego is the Future of Orange County since they are now purple land.

Man. Who would have ever thought Matt Cunningham could be a disgusting, senseless asshole with little regard for things like "reality" and "other people"?


Keep in mind this is coming from a guy who used to hide behind the pseudonym "Jubal" on OCBlog in order to both make similarly offensive statements as well as to talk about how smart that Matt Cunningham guy was.


Til we called him out of course. http://www.ocweekly.com/2006-04-13/news/who-is-jubal/

The post is cruel and incredibly stupid. This ranks down there with Prop 187 and poll guards. I hope the Chamber takes swift and decisive action.

Wow Edward Allison sure mows how to peg Mexicans. Of course he is in the right and can, with authority, make statements about ignoring and forgetting. And no Mexicans would not ite for Rubio, idiot. We are far more complex and diverse as Mexicans and Latinos than you can possibly fathom. I should know. I went to white schools and an Ivy League. So suck it. White people have a remarkable ability to forget...

Okay Gustavo you've got the brains for journalism. How would you illustrate what has been happening to moms in OC? By the way good eye on catching and giving your opinion on bad journalism.

I would suggest sharing your thoughts on this issue with those who employ him. The Chamber of Commerce is run by CEO/President Todd Ament, and if you think Matt Cunningham is a bully you should see the guy who signs those checks. Pure evil open to anything for a buck. Todd Ament answers to a Board of Directors who run the non-profit organization, thus far they have looked the other way, I assume Todd produces something of value, not sure what yet, his leadership drops the Chamber further into the red with each passing year, including a six-figure tab for unpaid payroll taxes. If you discover what Todd or Matt bring to the table in terms of benefit to the Chamber let me know. In the meantime, you may send your thoughts, prayers, poems, to the Board of Directors at the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce, 201 E. Center Street Anaheim CA 92805 or anaheimchamber.org but I suspect they go straight to Todd and I have no reason to believe he will pass along those messages to the board, where mail is harder to stash. 


Should you wonder where a flat-on-their-ass-broke Chamber of Commerce gets the scratch to pay Matt to fund Suite C, as a non-profit they are not required to disclose donors, but we do know their benefactors that make up the Anaheim City Council majority are very good at inventing little make-work projects for the Chamber at inflated price tags. Yep, there is a fairly good chance that if you are an Anaheim resident or business owner it is YOUR tax money that eventually worms its way into the bank account of the scum-bucket who finds it humorous to mock the mourning customs of Latino families one day after a candlelight vigil was held at Anaheim PD in memory of the shooting death of Cesar Cruz. Cesar's Mom, Theresa Smith, was at Council tonight with Donna Acevedo, mother of Joel, whose shooting death helped spark the "unrest" in July 2012. Both mothers spoke about the mocking of their sons' deaths and their own pain and mourning in the loss of their children, Theresa held up a photo of her son on a coroner's slab, along with the teddy bear screen shot. You wanna talk about being ashamed to be part of the same human race as Cunningham in that brief moment, it was AWFUL some of us openly weeping in Council Chambers...and while Gail Eastman expressed sorrow that the women endured that loss not one of them addresses the issue of the Chamber funding this crap, much less that the biggest funding source for Matt's employer is the City Council themselves. Accountability? Nope, just whining about how we don't offer them civility and respect when we come groveling to them from the podium. I have spent the last few days needing to scream or vomit, or both. 


Luis Lopez, a douchebag has a useful purpose, your epithets are aiming too high here.

And the comparison is apt. Apparently both Baldwin and Cunningham think saying/doing offensive BS is funny, and then both make lame excuses afterwards. Looks like MC is gonna lose his job like Baldwin did too.

So is Lou Dobbs, he is married to a Mexican, and look at how well we was received by the Mexican community. Mexicans have a remarkable ability to forget, and or ignore things. Welcome El Presidente Rubio, El Cubano en el nuevo GOP.

Sudden emptying of his bowels. I remember the Urell issue. That was when Urelle ran away to Canada in the middle of a deposition. He was about to get honest and the Bishops minnunnnns sent him away to the funny farm were life is good all the time. 

Matt-Cavron red carpet boy. Kiss ass who is paid have no moral stance or original thought for himself

Mr. Cunningham has proven himself to be a person of dubious character who seems to specialize in defending the indefensible.  This post is transparently racist and for that matter lampoons the devotion of the people of the Americas to Our Lady of Guadalupe.  Mr. Cunningham's employers at the chamber should disclaim it and him post haste.

At least a die hard racist like Tom Metzger will let you know exactly where he stands and makes no bones about who and what he hates, Rather than these dorks that pass themselves off as just concerned citizens exercising their free speech rights by posting offensive shit and saying " I'm only joking" then removing it to play off like they some type of morality if your going to play like you are a wolf at least have the balls to show your teeth all the time!

don't forget who wrote this story..can't call anyone racist when the writer is more racist than al Sharpton..at least this White guy obviously loves the OC..the writer of this story hates Orange County obviously and will do anything to deframe it.  accuses anyone who don't like Mexican food or agrees with him racist..sad thing is a lot of people buy into his bullshit..Gustavo reminds Me of someone who came from fresno or Bakersfield..if you people want and love pointing out the racist, why not just move north to L.A.  and join the left wing jew professors..at least you can feel cool and leave the OC for the Higher class folks..being poor doesn't give you all the right to call people racist!

@jamiepizza99 " leave the OC for the Higher class folks" Really? What, we not good enough to join the Clampetts? Come on now, we just want to be kin-folks too!

Btw, just because one calls outs the ills of your beloved OC does not make one a racist, nor does calling you a dumbass... dumbass! Allthough dumbassess arounf the OC might disagree.
