Local “alternative facts” blog The Humboldt Consequential (formerly the Humboldt Mirror) has been conducting a fatiguing character assassination campaign against all round “nice guy” Patrick Cleary for quite sometime, accusing him of anything they can conjure up. Now they’ve decided that newly elected Austin Allison must pose some kind of threat to their little neo-con world. In their latest tirade they accuse Austin of be pro Firefighter, OMG! That’s right those hard working, life saving, public safety heroes have somebody looking out for them. It’s got the right completely tweaked. You see, even though the Fire Department is made of very conservative people (just like the Police Dept.) it’s always the left that’s looking out for them, when it comes to pay and benefits. The idea being, the better you pay them the higher the standard you can hold them too.
