Council candidate Kate Gallego subject of incendiary race baiting


Arizona Republic mum on “political lynching”

Who could forget the egocentric Jarrett Maupin, II, who as an Al Sharpton protégé found himself in a bit of trouble and was arrested back in 2008 for false reporting after he lied to both the FBI and the Sheriff about allegations involving then-Mayor Phil Gordon? 

Maupin ran against Gordon in the mayoral race but was tossed off the ballot after the Maricopa County Clerk’s Office determined that nearly 185 of the signatures gathered to ensure Maupin’s spot on the ballot were illegally collected by felons.  Later in 2011, the sterling Maupin served time in federal custody for violating the terms of his probation in the 2009 conviction, and was given 36 months of supervised probation upon release.

Now, like his mentor, Sharpton, notorious for his involvement the infamous Tawana Brawley case, the disgraced Maupin has taken up the loathsome mantle of race-baiting, interjecting himself into the District 8 Phoenix City Council race. 

Maupin flings the entire can of garbage at Kate Gallego, a woman who has the temerity to think she has the right as an American citizen and resident of Phoenix to run for a council seat that some in the black community think they own. In an inane effort to out her as a non-minority, Maupin even hyphenates her Hispanic married name with her maiden name, a practice she does not appear to follow, to expose “who she really is.”

As we pointed out recently, when she was being hammered for her ethnicity and skin color by former city councilman Calvin Goode, Kate Gallego is married to state Representative Ruben Gallego. Both are Democrats.

Seeing Red AZ is a politically conservative site, not in the business of giving aid and comfort to Dems.  However, the vicious assaults on this woman are reprehensible, and standing by in silence would be condoning this despicable behavior. We would be remiss not acknowledging that fact, regardless of ethnicity or party affiliation.

To complicate this sordid mess, Maupin, who fashions himself as a civil rights leader and a minister, is livid because Councilman Michael Nowakowski, a Hispanic with a Polish surname, has endorsed Kate Gallego — who is neither black nor Hispanic.  Maupin is goading him to “do the right thing and withdraw his endorsement of Kate Widland-Gallego.” Maupin chides Nowakowski to “support black leadership and promote diversity,” and calls Gallego a “white sham candidate in brown face,” “an interloping political puppet,“ (albeit with a degree from Harvard and an MBA from the Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania) and “a white political patsy.”  He also refers to her as “a power-hungry white…who not is openly campaigning as white.”

If that’s not stomach-turning enough, Maupin accuses Councilman Nowakowski of “practicing the politics of racial exploitation and engaging in the attempted political lynching of Phoenix’ black community.”

“Lynching?” Now there’s a hot button term intended to dredge up some vicious acts, although it’s clear this lynching is in reverse.

Unless we’ve missed it, not a word from the illustrious Arizona Republic newspaper on this outrageous behavior directed at Kate Gallego. Would the silence be so deafening if she were not a “white sham candidate in brown face?”

Since this was written, Kate Gallego divorced Ruben Gallego while pregnant with their first child.  Ruben Gallego is now a congressman representing AZ’s Seventh Congressional District in Washington, D.C.

    If the Republicans were smart…which I don’t think they are, they would work behind the scenes to get a quality black candidate to run and win in this election and win some chips from the blacks.

    Otherwise, it is just one more loss.

    • LD 7 PC says:

      Obviously you have a disconnect here. This is a district with high Democrat registration. There are many others. There are similar configurations in many statewide legislative and congressional districts. They were intentionally crafted that way. I’ve doubted your involvement in the political arena based on many of your previous comments. Your comment exposes your lack of awareness of what we are up against. If you are actually a Republican, I invite you to become active and learn what we are up against. Run as a precinct committeeman in your own precinct. Learn.

      • Westnash says:

        The Dems will be running and sometimes winning in high Republican districts. High Dem districts would be a prize to win. Most probably cant be won but when an opportunity presents itself it is worth some thought and a strategy.

        That’s EXACTLY the same thing I told you, Westnash, about CD 9. Liberal leftists hijacked the redistricting process and drew into CD 9 much of Pastor’s turf, which voted highly Democrat.

        Despite the fact that both LD 7 PC and I have explained to you EXACTLY the same thing, you go on about how Vernon Parker was not qualified, how he “alienated” Libertarian leaning voters, how the answer is to choose candidates of a particular race.

        You consistently find Republicans and Conservatives lacking but you never fault the Liberal left for things like hijacking the redistricting process or for facilitating the slaughter of hundreds of innocents to promote gun control with the “Fast and Furious” operation.

        In your most recent post, you fault me for “blaming” Marxism while you consistently blame Republicans and Conservatives!

    • eubykdisop says:

      We already know that you don’t think that Republicans are smart, Westnash. You constantly find Republicans and Conservatives lacking in one way or another.

      Westnash wrote:”…they would work behind the scenes…” No, Westnash, we don’t work “behind the scenes” like Liberals do. We don’t have to because, unlike the Liberal left, we have nothing to hide.

      Westnash wrote: “…get a quality black candidate to run…” No, Wetnash, your incessant urging to choose candidates based upon their race is part of the Liberal agenda to send Republicans off on a demographic wild goose chase. The issue is principles, not race.

      Westnash wrote: “…and win some chips from the blacks.” That is, without question, the most demeaning racist comment I have ever read. “The blacks”? These are not objects, Westnash, nor are they monolithic. They are people, human beings, U. S. citizens and independently thinking individual voters.

      “Win some chips”? Is that how you view the contest between the Liberal leftist Marxists and Conservative Republicans? It comes down to “winning some chips”?

      No, Westnash, the issue is principles. It’s Capitalism versus Marxism, Constitutional freedoms and liberties versus totalitarianism, sovereignty versus rule by international bodies, death versus life.

      • Westnash says:

        Obviously, Euby, it is easy for you to blame Marxism, but impossible to offer a solution for the Arizona Republicans. Hopefully there is someone in the party smarter than you.
        I only say put up an opponent based on their ability to win in districts where otherwise you dont have a chance.

      • eubykdisop says:

        Oh, I LOVE this one, LOL!

        “…it is easy for you to blame Marxism…”

        I’m so sorry, Westnash, that I’m BLAMING Marxism! How very unreasonable and unfair of me to blame Marxism.

        “We expect Obama — twice endorsed by the Communist Party USA as reported in the Canadian Free Press, and already mainstreaming Marxism — to promote like-thinking extremist Sinema, to assist in facilitating their vision of American destruction.”

        That quote is from an SRAZ article, “AZ’s new lows: Sinema, joblessness cause image to tumble”.

    Why are minority racists given a wink and a nod when a Caucasian saying similar things would be rightfully vilified? These bigoted comments of Jarrett Maupin and Calvin Goode are beyond the bounds of decency, yet they are met with silence. I applaud this site for speaking out. But where are the other voices? Why aren’t leaders in the black and Latino communities making an issue of this outrageous conduct? For Kate Gallego to be called a “white sham candidate in brown face,” disgusts me.

    Glad to see that this blog is back.

  4. Trace Vickrey says:

    Now, I plan to donate to her and host fundraisers.

  5. RJ says:

    Praise GOD!! Speaking the truth and quoting the outrageous attacks of evil people should always be protected!! I have been praying all day for this action and cannot express how grateful that the honorable people who toil at this blog have been exonerated.

  6. Frankly Speaking says:

    Seeing Red AZ,
    So happy to see you are up and running again. I’ve checked in several times, and am so glad to see that you are back up and running. There is something very strange about the timing of this supposed violation of the blog server’s terms of service. Why all of a sudden after being providing solid conservative vantage points since 2007? I can’t help but think the removal might have something to do with the Maricopa County GOP election on Saturday. Whatever the reason, I am sincerely happy to see this go to site back up. Thank you all for the solid information you provide.

  7. Seeing Red AZ says:

    Thank you to all of our loyal friends who have remained with us these past two days as we were mistakenly accused of violating the terms of service to which we agreed at the inception of Seeing Red AZ back in 2007. This site was taken down without notice and reinstated in the same manner. We are grateful to be back and able to provide the strong politically conservative voice to Arizona’s citizens.

  8. Persible says:

    Wow, that’s some kind of non-explanation.

    • Seeing Red AZ says:

      Sorry you prefer to view truth as a “non-explanation.” Seeing Red AZ did nothing to violate the Terms of Service policy, which precludes paid ads, pornography and inciting others to do harm to themselves. Humans make mistakes. The site was reinstated, for which we are grateful. Would you prefer we made something up to satisfy your curiosity?

      • Hunter says:

        Did WordPress explain how the mistake was made and what steps are in place to prevent it in the future? For example, are there automatic filters that triggered the suspension, did someone complain to WordPress, or did someone just make a mistake and shut off the blog without realizing it? I understand WordPress might not have actually told you the full story or that they may not want you to share it. I think, though, that is what those following your blog are wondering about.

        Most of us are probably wondering if there is anything we can do to help you avoid problems like this in the future.

        From your explanation, it sounds like there was an administrative error causing the site to be suspended rather than an actual problem with the blog.

        Regardless of the story behind all of this, I’m glad Seeing Red Arizona is back!

  9. CD9 says:

    I was so upset this blog was gone. It is a relief to be back.

  10. CD9 says:

    Hey did you all hear that Doug Little called Robert Graham an SOB at the LD meeting last night? Three people say something was said in a meeting last Friday, and three say no it was not. So Doug who was not at the meeting listens to rumors and calls names. What a putz, and he wants to be Chairman.

    WordPress was founded by an Obama support. Like Twitter and Facebook these are used as tools to censor Conservative opinions. I had a Twitter account. Never used bad words, threats, any intimidation of any kind. I responded to Liberals after the shooting of the Singh Temple in August that were racists tweets. Libs right away complained to Twitter and poof, account gone, meanwhile the same Libs calling for death to Whites, Conservatives, Palin, etc. as the cause of the shooting remained with their Twitter accounts. It’s the same with Facebook.

    • Seeing Red AZ says:

      Thank you for this information. It appears conservatives have to adhere to a different standard.

      • Westnash says:

        I fault the Dems and liberal left for many things…but we understand they are the opponents. It is win vs. lose and you can think you are right all day and continue to go down to a defeat.

        All it will take is a crying Gabby Giffords and some film of the shooting and your gun laws will change drastically and she will be in either the Senate or Governor’s mansion making it much harder on you.

      • eubykdisop says:

        As always, Westnash, you’re putting out nothing but Liberal propaganda. Let’s analyze your latest comment, shall we?

        Westnash wrote: “…you can think you are right all day and continue to go down to a defeat.”

        First of all, Westnash, we don’t THINK we’re right, we KNOW we’re right.

        Secondly, how are we going down to defeat? I’m not defeated. None of the Conservative Republicans here have said that they are defeated. Where is this defeat you keep talking about?

        Westnash wrote: “All it will take is a crying Gabby Giffords and some film of the shooting and your gun laws will change drastically and she will be in either the Senate or Governor’s mansion making it much harder on you.”

        Here’s what I find MOST interesting about this comment and other comments you have made, Westnash. You always refer to “you” and not to “us”; “…much harder on you” rather than “…much harder on us”. You make a consistent and clear distinction between the Conservative Republicans here and yourself.

        You keep forgetting, Westnash, that about 50 times as many innocent people were slaughtered as a result of Obama’s “Fast and Furious” operation as were killed in the Tucson shootings. The Tucson shootings were done by a mentally ill person but it was our own government, the Obama administration, which facilitated the “Fast and Furious” slaughter.

        Despite your assertions that the Liberal left has the advantage, they are actually in deep doo doo, on an ongoing basis, over Obama’s “Fast and Furious”.
