Obama hates America and other thoughts from Fortuna City Councilman Dean Glaser
Now that Fortuna is fixing to place the motto “In God We Trust” in its council chambers at city hall, KSLG’s John Matthews sat down with Councilman Dean Glaser, who proposed the signage.
Go ahead and listen, and then ask yourself how the heck Glaser ever got elected to a governing body. The only thing missing from his iconic flag tie and buttons is a tin foil hat.
In the world according to Glaser, shadowy forces are slowly destroying the United States by seeking to eliminate American borders and forfeit our sovereignty. And if you don’t believe him, just ask Gene Owens, a Fortuna Tea Bagger and member of the John Birch Society — a group working to drown the US government, “with God’s help.”
Glaser believes what he wants to believe and neither facts nor Google will change his mind. Early in the interview Glaser is adamant that unlike other presidents, Barack Obama doesn’t say “God bless America.” This is false. Obama uses the phrase ad nauseam, as noted in transcripts here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here, and there are many more examples. How does a God-fearing Christian American miss all those God Blesses? And why should anyone take his other claims seriously?
The Atlantic covered this very issue in January, chastising Obama for using the tired phrase to end his speeches. The author notes revered Republican President Abraham Lincoln chose not to say it, which must make him a Godless Commie in Glaser’s eyes.
“I need to save my credibility,” Glaser said. “I try to be an informed citizen.”
Glaser is hoping other Humboldt towns will hoist the “In God We Trust.” He named Blue Lake, Trinidad, Ferndale and Rio Dell as possibilities.
