Anti-Establishment, Local Resentment

I recently came across a local blog, “Brooklyn Revolution.” Brooklyn, New York will always be my home, but politics here is quite possibly more crooked than a stepped-on twig. The anti-establishment feel has taken to the streets when I found this blog post expressing anger and resentment towards the Brooklyn GOP establishment. Whatever the liberty movement has been going, it’s doing something right. 

A little background: The names mentioned in the blog post are figureheads in the Brooklyn Republican Party. Gerry O’Brien is a “political consultant.” Clorinda Annarummo is District Leader (in my District), and Craig Eaton is the Party Chairman. I’ve worked with two of the three individuals listed and I can attest that they are not the friendliest, nor the most liberty-minded people you would ever meet. I’m a County Committeeman in the 46th Assembly District in Brooklyn and have received a lot of flak from the establishment for being a libertarian Republican. 

The post I found is quoted below. There are other anti-establishment blogs in Brooklyn. My favorite is “Atlas Shrugs.” Enjoy the read.

So the Brooklyn GOP has decided to sprout out another puppet “Club” to uphold the “rising stars” of the Brooklyn Republican Party. Rising stars like Gerry O’Brien, Craig Eaton, and Clorinda Annarummo. Rising stars that are experiencing a super nova, slowing imploding on themselves.

In the wake of the “Theodore Roosevelt Republican Club,” I’m going to begin thrashing the Brooklyn GOP with one thesis: Theodore Roosevelt was not a Republican.
If they did their homework at all, if they understood history whatsoever, if they stopped the high school humor on their self-professed Hate Blog, they would understand that Teddy Roosevelt did not exhibit the principles of a true Republican. If anything, President Roosevelt represented the birth of the Progressive Movement.
Roosevelt was the same President who was dubbed, “Trust Buster.” Why? Because he outlawed companies from forming trusts; this was not only a direct interference and regulation of the free market, but Roosevelt sought to make markets “fair” rather than “free.” I thought Republicans were supposed to believe in small limited government?
This President also sent Union troops to protesting miners in 1902 and allowed Federal soldiers to open fire on the strike, killing several American citizens. Why? Because Teddy Roosevelt wanted Federal control over the coal industry… the same way Barack Obama wants control over the health industry.
After his defeat, President Roosevelt decided to start the “Bull Moose Party,” and chose not to run again as a Republican. So as a big-government, Republican Party turncoat, the Brooklyn GOP has decided to name its very own club after this statist advocate.
You really don’t have to go farther than the title to know that the Brooklyn GOP is completely off its rocker and literally has no clue as to what it is doing, what it wants to achieve, and how it wants to achieve it. They’ve become so desperate to rally supporters for their Hate-induced fanfare that they couldn’t even look twice at who they’re naming their clubs after.
