|"Sho Tay Expresses Regret and Apologizes" - Watch the video here.|
Now I'm not going to complain too much about this. After all I have been kicked off far better web pages than "Voice of Arcadia." It attracts only a small readership and just a limited amount of commenters. This is also a site that I have found to be ceaselessly dishonest, at times laughable, and obsessed with conspiracy fantasies that most well adjusted people find difficult to take seriously.
But here is a problem I do have. I have made comments on VOA, some rather pointed, and asked a number of questions there as well. I did receive replies, mostly odd, and for a while everything I left there remained peacefully in place. However, when I posted the above video on that site, everything I had submitted was immediately pulled down. Along with the video.
Plus I am now blocked from commenting on there, so I have not been able to ask why this happened. Though I am pretty sure I know the answer.
The reason I posted the "Sho Tay Expresses Regret and Apologizes" video on the Voice of Arcadia site was to counter what I believed was an untrue statement. That being Sho Tay did not apologize at the June 5th City Council meeting.
Here is how VOA put it:
I am not certain how someone "expressing regret" over sending out an illegal and baldly dishonest political postcard during a highly contentious election is somehow going to "restore peace" to Arcadia. The financing of this hit piece mailing is, not coincidentally, being investigated by the FPPC. None of this seems like the kind of thing people would line up behind with much unifying enthusiasm.
So as a reply I posted that video on the Voice of Arcadia site, and it was immediately pulled down.
Obviously somebody there couldn't handle quite that much truth.
