GreenMountainHardRight! Goes Belly-Up


W
ow!  That didn't take long!

The blog that seemed to radiate at the mention of Kevin Blier or his hate group, Vermont Renewal, has left the building.
"Green Mountain Hard Right! will now be known as "Ordo Et Traditio".  All future posts will be found at (that) web site..."
You can read his tortured reasoning for discarding his old skin here.

We'd sum it up this way:   He's moved to upstate New York; even though the blog name NewYorkHardRight! is available, it's racist origin is, umm, discomfiting and has proven troublesome; he's found a new, equally unappealing name, in a Gucci glasses, Prada red shoes, and old school Roman Catholic, fascist kinda way; and he discloses that Vermont's own Fred Phelps, Steve Cable, was a boss of him!

Perhaps our posturingly learned friend should have considered naming his blog "Absurdo Ab Inconvenienti".  It would seem more apt.

Kevin Blier:  Flamer


N
o, no, no.  Not that kind, this kind.

Late last week we learned that Kevin Blier is still trying to peddle the spin that he knew nothing about the New Hampshire GOP Phone Jamming scheme until after the fact and that everyone is either mistaken or slandering his good(?) name.

This time he's doing it in the form of a discussion board flamer.  If you've ever had the misfortune of coming across a flamer like Blier, you know the type.  Rational discussion is never the point.  Being pointlessly argumentative and insulting is the best that they offer in their posts to a discussion thread.  Even when they've clearly got something wrong, as Blier did when he said that the Lost Nation TV website was anonymously operated (not that there's anthing wrong with that!), the flamer never relents, they merely sidestep their error and reach for another insult.

You'll find Kevin flaming away here.

Cashing In On Foley-gate


N
aturally the websites of the Kevin Blier hate groups Vermont Renewal/Center for American Cultural Renewal are following the lead of other notorious hate groups such as Tony Perkins' Family Research Council.   Unsurprisingly, Perkins, to whom their piece refers, has longstanding ties to racist groups.

Blier's group has posted a tortured, outcome oriented, analysis of the latest Republican congressional scandal with the usual fund-raising "donation" buttons at the top and bottom of the post.   The Blier group piece deliberately and cynically blurs the lines between Pedophilia and Ephebophilia, as do other fundamentalist activists, seeking to inflame the matter as much as possible as a part of an attempt to divert attention from the makeup of the the group that has covered up this situation - conservative Christian Republicans.

This ABC News piece takes a different view, exploring the Republicans own self-made closet issue, while pointing out:
Social conservatives... have seized on the story line that homosexuality leads directly to interest in underage partners, though it should be noted that there's as yet no evidence of any improper physical contact between Foley and the former pages.
Although the Blier group piece contains links to earlier Jack Tapper, Salon and ABC News articles, you won't find this more recent one on his websites.   After all, you can't raise as much money with the truth, can you?

Fisking Kevin Blier


W
e've come across another one of those wickedly funny emails from Kevin Blier that he sent to a website that clearly has his number, LostNation.TV.   When he whigs out as he did here, Kevin's reading skill and power of observation seem to escape him. And when tied to the long-standing Republican precepts of misdirection, misinformation and minimization, along with his by now well known nasty, anger management issues, it can all make for some humorous reading:
"Re: Jamming - NH Phone Jamming Conspiracy Case Widens
I suppose, Mr. anonymous "Lost Nation TV webmaster", that I should have alerted the authorities of the "impending" felony after it had already happened? And since Kathy Sullivan was aware of the actual crime for 12 hours longer than I was, I suppose that makes the NH Democrat Chair a "co-conspirator" in the cover-up as well?"


If Kevin had bothered to look at the bottom of the piece or had troubled himself to examine the website's main page, he'd have been able to learn, as we did, that the "webmaster", editor and author's name were all in plain view and in numerous locations.   The charge that "Kathy Sullivan was aware of the crime for 12 hours longer than [he] was" is merely that, a charge.   Kevin offers us no evidence, unlike that of the orchestrator of the 2002 NH GOP Phone-jamming scandal who has told investigators repeatedly that it is his belief that he told his confidants, among who he counted Blier, before the criminal event that it was to occur.   Nor does he yet tell us why he kept this statement to him by the perpetrator of the felony his little secret for three and a half years until it all came out earlier this summer in the Union Leader.   Sadly, Kevin can't seem to resist the urge to further victimize the targets of the aborted scheme.

"Seems you could use an editor!"

See above, Kevin.

"I was always willing and available to talk to the FBI and Justice Department long after their initial inquiries, however, it seems I had little to offer their investigation."

This statement does nothing to clear up whether Kevin ever advised any of the investigators that he'd left New Hampshire or why he didn't come forward to tell them what he did know.   There has been no public assestment offered by the investigators of the value they might placed in what he could have told them, had he chosen to come forward. Would his story have remained the same?   Who can say? While it is a crime to lie to investigators, it isn't a crime to lie to a website or a newspaper, so we can't really say yet, given his previous obfuscations and minimization of the event, that we know the whole truth about what Kevin knew and when he knew it.

"I have never accused you liberals of being that bright...and low and behold...you've proven it once again!"

"Now, since logic doesn't seem to be a strong suit, and smearing people anonymously is how you seemingly fulfill your fantasies, there's a 9/11 conspiracy theory awaiting you and the rest of the left-wing kooks working to slander anyone who they disagree with."

Now, just who's smearing and slandering who here, eh Kevin?

"Once you become an honest journalist, and are able to check your facts, show your face, and stand behind your assertions with those whom you accuse, than maybe someone other than your minions, sleuthy wannabes, and Star Trek convention-goers would take seriously what you write."

"Sleuthy wannabes???" Really, Kevin.   The rest of what you said before that was just your usual substanceless posturing for effect, but we think the "sleuthy wannabes" crack might have been directed to us.   Frankly, you ain't seen nothing yet.   As for the "Star Trek convention-goers" jab, the funny thing about that is it seems the headliner for your recent exclusive, invitation only, bigot-fest was a... Trekkie!

"Get a life...  better yet...  get a job and become a contributing member of society." --

In all honesty Kevin, there aren't many who would consider your present position as the "Director" of a second-rate, secretive hate group, actively engaged in destroying one Vermont family as a part of a fund-raising scheme, to be much of a life, or much of a job, or much of a contribution to society.

"Kevin Blier"

Kevin Blier  -  What has become, by his leaving, New Hampshire's gain, is now Vermont's loss.

Someone's Got His Sheet In a Knot


K
evin Blier's
hoity-toity lapdog over at GreenMountainHardRight! has a hilarious series of refutations of our charge that he likes the thinking of racists and other assorted bigots, here, here and here.   They bring to mind another royal "I just thought the uniform looked cool" kind of dissimulating.


He clumsily cites a racist plagiarizer, Michelle Malkin, whose presence, he would argue, is "proof" that he can't be a racist himself.   Like the blogger at GMHR!, she's also a fan of the white supremacist ideologue, Steve Sailer.   Gee, we didn't know you had to be white to be a racist.   We suppose that sort of thinking must be a consequence of signing on to the other crap espoused at a website like VDare's.   The fact of the matter is, Malkin is merely further confirmation of the extremist, fringe nature of GMHR!'s gross predilections.
"Quite simply the reason I read Steve Sailer is the same reason I read George McCartney who writes the film reviews for Chronicles: I want to know what films they recommend. If reading the film reviews of Steve Sailer makes me a racist then how can I fight such ludicrous logic?"
Next thing he'd have us believe is that he buys Playboy for the articles

More (again) on where GMHR! gathers its many insights on diversity among like-minded "paleoconservatives" here and here
