Dave Anders, Again
Mr. Anders, a perennial supporter of Our Dear Leader, had this to say about Mack’s comment from yesterday:
“Eric, again, the letter is not signed. If an IAFF member has criticism of the IAFF or our GP, surly [sic] he/she would not hesitate to sign their name and list their Local number. The lack of an id can only mean one thing, you wrote it.”
To which IAFF Delegate responded:
“Mr Anders, there are valid reasons for members to remain anonymous here. I know. I took a tongue lashing from my President for using my name here once. I was told that our state President and our DVP were upset with me and our Local because of it. I think it was a matter of our President being cast as not having his Local under control because a member chooses to speak out. Similarly, another elected member of our Local was chastised. We both decided it would be better to go under cover. If we didn’t, we would not be able to accomplish things within our Local or state.
This is part of the intimidation that takes place.”
As did Mack, himself:
“Mr. Anders, with all due respect, did you read my post? I was inspired to reply because I DISAGREED with Eric when he wrote that we as Union members are, “well aware of his ethics and “style” of operating”. Eric also wrote that, “only a few local leaders are smart enough to maintain their independence regarding whom to support for top offices”, a point which I countered by throwing myself only partially under the bus by saying that, “I was ignorant all those years, not stupid….”
I’m a real person, sorry to have to point that out.”
Mr. Anders and the Wizard of Oz
Mr. Anders cannot bring himself to look behind the curtain “and see that the Great and Powerful Oz is just an old man hiding behind a curtain.”
But our OZ has far more in common with the Wicked Witch of the West.
Only a “wicked witch” would steal nickels to the tune of $1,385,000 from children suffering a life-threatening disease in order to slurp red wine at $200 a bottle.
In the IAFF Oz remake the munchkins are the cowardly and emasculated vice presidents who back his every play even when it involves destroying our own members and our bedrock ideals.
More than any other single issue, the Great Muscular Dystrophy Rip-off and the fact that IAFF members support it, perfectly illustrates how far the IAFF has fallen under Schaitberger’s pillaging watch.
For the MDA theft alone we deserve to be purged from the earth in the defense of morality and decency.
