Screamers across the aisle, elected officials, citizen rabble-rousers suffer amalgam of disorders

Screamers across the aisle, the raucous, rabble-rousing clan in Compton — City officials and citizens who have contempt for the Compton Herald, please understand: Our news is not required reading!

There are innumerable loyal readers inside and outside of Compton that outnumber the lunatic fringe firing aimlessly at everyone who opposes their narrow political views. That includes the city’s elected officials.

The Herald is not a smut-tabloid. We don’t publish lies and innuendo. We do not publish “hit-pieces” on people we do not agree with merely to disparage their reputation. That is the antithesis to the role of a newspaper. For the ones who do not “get it,” we hope for growth in their Intelligence Quotient.

And dispense with the slobbering dribble — “We need a newspaper!” You, madame, mister, apparently have no inkling of a good, sound newspaper or the mission thereof.

You can always attempt to publish your own newspaper. Yeah, good luck with that one.

People talk about Donald Trump! Well, this city has its fair share of Trumpians who apparently swallowed his book — Art of Lying and Rabbling. We’re being facetious, but, seriously, some Comptonians are mired in the quicksand of “delusion.” You’re probably familiar with the noun: something that is falsely or delusively believed or propagated.

Those hating on the Herald need take a reality check. What has happened can be reversed. The citizens in Compton are ready to get with the business of restoring Compton to its past glory. Thousands of first-time voters can achieve this.

Out with the old incompetence, in with the new. The old cronies and vindictive curmudgeons need to get out of the way. That’s how we see it. If that’s any reason to revile the Herald, we can take the hit. Maligning the Herald will not impede our mission to tell it like it is — the good and the bad.

For prudes, haters, and envy mongers, it is clear their anguish is a cry for deliverance from the snare of social impudence — in and out of City Hall.

The first step is a “house cleaning” of the current elective office holders. The smidgen of the city’s registered electorate that does vote, keeps returning the same tired, argumentive representatives to office. The mayor and council cannot seem to work together for the good of their constituents.

City governance is constipated with pettiness, arrogance, unforgiveness, “Trumpianism” — yes, that’s a noun that aptly applies here in all of its ugliness.

The city needs an enema, blood transfusion (translated – new council and mayor), and an old-fashioned Holy Ghost deliverance because there are some on the council that needs the “laying on of hands.”

That’s putting it mildly
