moreno chuchua youngAccording to the Anaheim City Clerk’s website, the first big donors to left-wing Chicano Studies professor Jose Moreno’s city council candidacy were Brian Chuchua and SaveAnaheim.com’s Jason Young.

Moreno filed to run for Anaheim City Council on August 8. The next day, Chuchua wrote him a check for the maximum contribution of $1,900 and Young cut one for $1,000.

Chuchua is a retired businessman, two-time council candidate, one of the two (known) members of CATER (Coalition of Anaheim Taxpayers for Economic Responsibility) and helped found the Anaheim Small Business Association. Which begs the question of why he maxed out to the most left-wing, anti-business candidate in the race? Is imposing a gate tax, burdening Anaheim businesses with retention ordinances and killing jobs by imposing a “living wage” the economically responsible thing to do for Anaheim taxpayers? Of course not, but philosophically coherent action isn’t one should expect from the political precincts inhabited by Chuchua and those he follows.

The only other contributions so far to the Moreno campaign are a $1,000 transfer from his school board campaign account, a $1,777 personal loan, and a $1,900 contribution from United Food and Commercial Workers Local 324 PAC.  We won’t know about contributions of less than a $1,000 until the next round of campaign reports, due on October 6.

wait until my blogAnaheim Insider here.

Julie Tait, the wife of Mayor Tom Tait, sent an e-mail to supporters yesterday with a link to an OC Weekly puff piece on the Mayor. In the e-mail, she writes:

“When the special interests groups and their lobbyist start coming after Tom, please don’t believe the nasty things you might hear or read.”

Yes, because only special interests groups and lobbyists could possibly be opposed to what Tait has said and done as mayor.

“Rather than sticking to the issues, we suspect they will attack Tom’s character.  As we all know, attacking ones character is the lowest form of argument.”

The hypocrisy here is that character attacks are the stock in trade of Mayor Tait’s most intense campaign supporters and volunteers, such as Cynthia Ward, Jason Young and others. Mrs. Ward is practically the Taits’ bodyguard these days. She can hardly write a sentence without attacking the character of an Enemy of the Tait. Has that pious criticism ever been communicated to her? Young no longer publishes his nasty pro-Tait website, but character attacks against anyone who disagrees with Mayor Tait were the only kind of argument he could manage.

You can’t give what you don’t have. If the Tait campaign truly believed “attacking ones character is the lowest form of argument,” they would put a leash on their attack dogs. Otherwise, complaints about character attacks are simple hypocrisy.

Jason Young fullertonThat was quick.

SaveAnaheim.com has come and gone. Jason Young started this his attack blog last year, using it to personally malign political figures he disliked and to apotheosize those he liked.  Young, a wedding videography with a checkered past, employed a simplistic, manichean blogging style that reminded me of old communist organs like Pravda and consiting mainly with re-gurgitating other people’s content.  If you had the good fortune of not having read SaveAnaheim.com, it was the blog equivalent of a certain behavior exhibited by simians in zoos.

In October of last years, the OC Weekly named it “Best Blog of 2012” (sort of a doorknob award in the OC blogosphere). Now its history, and Young has shuttered the eponymous political action committee and moved to the Golden Hills section of Fullerton. The URL is re-directed to the New Anaheim, a garish blog that basically aggregates press releases and OC Register articles and is operated by the even more vicious and meretricious Art Pedroza.

Jason Young liarAnaheim Blog readers remember Jason Young, gadfly wedding videographer with a court record.

Jason is about as subtle and nuanced as a sledgehammer. Jason’s favorite tactic is accusing people of being “liars” – an interesting approach from someone convicted of burglary and identity theft.

Today, Jason unsheathed his stiletto in an attempt to slash (figuratively speaking) the newest member of the Anaheim Citizens Advisory Committee, Amanda Edinger.

I’ll not link to Jason’s attempt at character assassination. He posts screenshots of some comments Mrs. Edinger has made on Facebook and uses them to falsely claim Mrs. Edinger is anti-immigrant. In other words, the guy who continually accuses other people of being liars shows himself to be exactly that: a liar.

Amanda Edinger’s comments reveal that she thinks the federal welfare state is too big and that too many people are dependent on it; that immigrants who are in this country illegally should not be given amnesty; that immigrants to this country should learn English; that the federal government should be able to control the border; that individuals should strive to be self-sufficient. All of these are views that are squarely in the mainstream of American political thought.

But Jason Young, in a deeply dishonest act, smears her as “anti-immigrant.”

Logic? Consistency? Those are for lesser beings.

Logic? Consistency? Those are for lesser beings.

Let me say right off the bat that I’m not according Jason Young undeserved credibility, but it is worth highlighting a comment he made on the Voice of OC yesterday while tangling with Anaheim Blog contributor Anaheimocrat — if only because Jason’s cognitive dissonance is held in such high esteem by the crowd that opposes the GardenWalk agreement while simultaneously wanting to put it on the ballot.

First, Jason tosses out this assertion:

“The majority votes on the original agreement, the public outcry is overwhelming negative against the deal (over 15,000 signatures gathered to oppose TOT giveaways), and a judge throws it out.

The people have spoken and yet Kris Murray, Gail Eastman, and Jordan Brandman  will try and ram this deal through again?”

When it is pointed out to him that the people actually did speak by electing the pro-GW candidate and rejecting the ant-GW candidates, Young quickly contradicted himself:

“The people don’t know what is going.”

So, which is it? There is no reason to grant any gravity to the signatures gathered by Take Back Anaheim’s union-funded circulators if, as Jason Young says, they were gulled from “people [who] don’t know what is going on.”

And how can “the people speak” on GardenWalk if, as Young asserts, they are don’t know what is going on? How can you there be an overwhelming outcry from an ignorant public?

This painful cognitive dissonance isn’t confined to Jason Young’s rantings, but runs through the commentary and pronouncements of anti-GardenWalk activists.

Jason and his admirers can’t have it both ways.
