Andi Elliott: Response to the Post Register

September 13th, 2009 by Halli

By Andi Elliott

You can imagine my surprise when Nick Draper, of the Post Register, called me for an interview after having been “banned” from having my opinions published. I have worked with Nick on animal cruelty situations before. I found him to be fair and am always eager to spread the word about my two passions…my love of animals and my country.

The comments from Steve Zeman in no way corresponded to the police report I filed just days after the Health Care Rally naming Bob and two women in it. I was cursed at, shoved, flipped off, and told to leave, as was another one of the 8 Conservatives there. I am faxing a copy to the Post Register.

Naturally, I must address Roger Plothow’s comments about my “ugly language”. Really??? I have copies of editorials spanning decades and have found no such language. I did, however, use the word “hell” once when quoting my father.

So, I am one of two people “banned”? At the Tea Party on 9/11, a fifth person told me that HE was the other person AND all of us are Conservatives…I guess content DOES matter!

When Mr. Plothow receives copes of my editorials this week I hope he has time to highlight (highlighter enclosed) my “ugly language”. I’m betting that he doesn’t even have to remove the cap.

Thank you to the five other newspapers that publish my opinions in support of our First Amendment Rights as guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States.
