GORDONVILLE — Another day, another call for Montgomery County Commissioner Joe Gale to either rescind this comments in the wake of the national protests over the George Floyd death under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer, or to flat out resign over them.
I’m going to shock you here a little bit, but don’t count me among the chorus.
You want him out? Do it the old-fashioned way — just like I hope you do with your president (not mine) and his many minions in elected office, at all level — and vote them out.
Once that door closes, he will have nowhere else to go.
And that will be the ultimate revenge.
I have it on good authority that Gale, knowing he will be permanently be the in the minority among the three elected spots among the commissioners, has joked that he has a job for life.
Let’s put the joke on him, and pull the plug then.
No need to do it now.
Gale spoke his mind. He revealed his true self, which was not a surprise, really. He has marched to the drum beat — chewing up and spitting out all the generic Fox News talking points — since he has been in the public eye.
No one really cared — or noticed — what he shared on Facebook (we’re “friends” on there) or passed along on Twitter.
Why do it now?
Pigs grunt. A pig grunted.
End of story.
It is his right, as an American citizen to do so, just as it was Colin Kaepernick’s right to take a knee and for everyone else to take to the streets in protest since the Floyd atrocity that — as horrific as it seemed — was the straw that broke the camel’s back, in terms of systemic police brutality.
There is a core group of people, drawn from the same demon spawn, that Gale is clearly trying to score points with by saying what he is saying about Black Lives Matter and Antifa. He doubled down with decrying how the City of Philadelphia, over which has no say as an elected official, pretty much erasing Frank Rizzo — the former police commissioner and mayor — from history (I don’t agree with that, either).
Let him be their hero.
Let him be our zero.
It’s almost laughable, really.
Trust me on this one. I’ve met this guy a few times. I’ve encountered mannequins with better personalities.
They say some human’s brains are not even fully formed until the age of 30. Gale is 30, and he still lives with his parents. Can’t you just picture him in the basement with his little “Don’t Tread On Me” flags on the wall?
Maybe all this is about — this unoriginal cut-and-paste from the likes of Steve Bannon — is a nothing but a cry for attention.
As tempting as it is, don’t give it to him.
Don’t give him any more oxygen.
It’s already a shame with share it.
Feel bad for this little boy lost.
Let him find his own way, post-election, when he doesn’t have his alleged “job for life” anymore.
As what has been proven by the last few weeks of Americans of all colors and creeds demanding their country back is that there are far bigger fish to fry than Joe Gale.
