State Rep. White Accused Of Attacking Shale Supporters Online (democrat thug)
KDKA Pittsburgh ^ | 05/29/2013

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Janice Gibbs is a grandmother and was born and raised in Washington County. Although she has no drilling lease on her land, she believes that shale gas drilling is great for the local economy.

“I just think it’s a good thing for our community,” Gibbs said.

When she started posting her pro-gas views on local websites under the name “Proud American,” she was soon shocked at how nasty things got.

First, State Rep. Jesse White allegedly posted Gibbs’ real identity. Then, someone posting under the name “Prouder American” called her an “industry troll.” Another posting under the name “Harold,” called her an “undereducated yonder,” “dumber than a box of rocks,” “an embarrassment to her community.”

Gibbs has long suspected all the comments were actually posted by White himself.

“I can’t prove it Mr. Sheehan, but hopefully somebody can and stop it because it’s getting worse,” Gibbs said.

And things did get worse. Gibbs was soon under attack by someone posting under a name “Janice Gibson.”

One of the comments said, “Janice Ludwin Gibbs is a local mole for the gas industry propaganda group Energy In-depth.”

“A mole, an Internet troll, I’m getting paid by Energy In-depth. I wish my paycheck would hurry up because I could sure use it,” Gibbs said in reaction to the comment.

Surely it’s telling that the left is becoming more and more openly brazen in doing these kinds of things. When scandals break, don’t count on shaming them as a tactic, because they have already done everything to prove they have no shame. They don’t even have any shame when caught unless their own come down on them, which happens less and less these days, because they have no shame regarding what their side does, as long as it benefits the cause. “The end justifies the means” is a point of pride with them. Think back to illegal aliens in the Oval Office, people bragging on teevee about multiple voting for Obama, etc. They just have no shame. As long as the right is unwilling to take the consequences for bringing them to justice and damn the left’s the reaction, or the stupid ignorant idiocracy’s reaction, they’re only going to get worse. And the right will never risk potentially losing votes from the idiocracy, the amnestied illegals, etc.

So there we are.

All this crud can’t go on. There must be a line somewhere, it is becoming unbearable. This is not my country, I want my country back.

Well-said. No standards, no morals, and zero shame.

Are people really this stupid?

I just read that. The GOP spokesman says it’s “deplorable” but has no plans, apparently, to take action. Why should they? “You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours”. It’s a club for enhancement of wealth, power, and perks, not public service. It goes all the way to DC.

Ping if you haven’t already seen this. I think KDKA is the only local news channel covering it.
