A week ago, longtime Anaheim crank William Denis Fitzgerald made waves during a special Anaheim city council meeting by lambasting councilman Jordan Brandman as representative of a small cabal of "evil" and "scheming" Jews, and topped it off by calling him "one very sick faggot."

Fitzgerald's homophobic slur at the end elicited immediate disapproval and disgust from the dais and the assembled public. Condemnations of Fitzgerald--Anaheim's version of Archie Bunker, who has also trashed Muslims and Vietnamese in the past--rightfully came swiftly from all corners, with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Log Cabin Republicans and the Orange County Human Relations Commission issuing press releases decrying him. And, Anaheim politics being what they are today, Councilwoman Kris Murray and her lackeys at the blog headed by hack Matt Cunningham (who outed sex-abuse victims) are blaming Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait for Fitzgerald's rant. Murray appeared alongside Tait on PBS' SoCal Insider saying, "I think what's hardball is when we have the chambers filled with hate speech...That really is what should be the story, the presiding officer not taking action to stop what was some very clear, horrific things that were anti-Semitic."
What a pendeja--especially considering last year, one of Cunningham's frequent commentators was as racist toward Mexicans...yet nary a peep.More »
