Small town Montana newspaper editor walks into buzz saw on Syrian refugee issue
Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 23, 2016
I have a million more things to write about (and am waaayyy behind), but when this popped up in my alerts just now, I thought it was something you all needed to know—Montanans are trying to save themselves from becoming the newest destination for Syrian and other Middle Eastern and African refugees*** and they are being vilified by Leftists now in charge of small newspapers attempting to control the narrative.
Truthfully, I am not wading into all of the he said/they said. You can read it all yourself. But, it seems a new newspaper editor penned a piece last week entitled ‘Syrian refugees are not welcome in Sanders County‘ that has angered the rural Montana community and they are letting him know.
First read what editor/reporter Trip Burns said, here.
Then see his response to the criticism, here, including this from a reader, Les Wood of Plains:
I know that you are a new guy in town, but you better know that we watch over and protect our own. We are not so quick to accept a new guy who thinks that he has all of the liberal answers for the world and that we are a bunch of old retired hicks who don’t know which way is up.
Continue reading here. (I guess we should give him credit for posting all of the criticism!)
You don’t need these small town rags!
I feel like I am beating a dead horse when I say this, but please, all of you in ‘pockets of resistance’ must develop your own alternative media to bypass the Leftwing-controlled corporate media industry. This paper (Clark Fork Valley Press) has a circulation of a whopping 1,466 and is owned by some big corporation called Hagadone Corp. (whoever the heck they are!), see here.
Use your free speech! Get your own facts out on what is happening to Montana by writing blogs, websites, and through other forms of social media! Go door to door with flyers if you must!
