Over at Freedom to Screech (blechh), the forever masquerading Vicky Ann Denschak is audibly gloating.
Someone important has been paying attention to “them.”
Seems “they” received a congratulatory letter from a man named Eric I. Miller, founder of Advance America, which at casual first glance might appear to be just another in a chain of check cashing joints or, more topically, one in a series of Boston tea party lobbying groups embroiled in the current Indiana property tax debate.
In his innocuous note to our decidedly non-existent professor, Miller restricts his comments to the usual “keep fighting the good fight” triteness, and these brief remarks are followed with the expected semi-coherent ranting on the part of the trognonymous blogging duo.
Lest the easily duped in New Albany believe that Miller and Advance America are all about saving their “monies” and nothing else, it’s important to know who Miller really is, and what his organization really stands for, because in fact, Advance America somehow weaves the abolition of property taxes to a bizarro-world “family values” and Christian supremacy platform of gay bashing, anti-abortion rhetoric and jackbooted flag waving. While the current emphasis is on tax reform, it doesn’t mean the rest of the Miller’s planks have been discarded.
It turns out that a diligent Indianapolis blogger (Advance Indiana) named Gary Welsh has been acidly commenting for quite some time on the putrid phenomenon of Miller, a one-time failed gubernatorial candidate and gay-baiting fellow attorney. While I might cite dozens of Welsh’s entries as an introduction, we’ll start here with just three:
Frame this: Long accuses Miller of misleading voters
Miller schools candidates to be just like him
Miller Enriched by Self-Dealing at Advance America
It isn’t a pretty picture, but then again, the Denschaks have seldom been discerning in their choice of political bedfellows.
To favor property tax reform, must one also favor depriving fellow citizens of human rights?
