  • The RCAC. People appointed by those liberal Demorat County Commissioners to “look out for” the interests of the rural areas of the county as it gets annexed and paved over by the small towns. The rural areas that “have no representation” according to some, even though they are represented by the RCAC.
    .
    This morning on his pudcast, one Ward Scott badmouthed Commissioner Byerly and voiced his support for the Secession of Springs County. Other mornings this so called Ward Scott likes to imply Communist leanings by calling one commissioner “Hutch “Karl Marx” Hutchinson” and we all know Commies are Bad.
    .
    Interesting, as this so called Ward Scott works for Byerly and Hutchinson.
    He is the Chair of the RCAC and has been for some 12 years.
    .
    In other countries, advocating secession from the political leaders you were appointed by and work for would be called “Treason.” Guess the rules are different in liberal Alachua County.

    Some open minded people are asking serious questions on the Spring County facebook page. Questions about taxes, county finances, government organization. Self Appointed Wannabe Dictator Dear Leader Lil Tim is not pleased and is banning any views but those of his loyal rabid cult followers.
    .
    Some recent quotes from the Springs County facebook:
    .
    Springs County Florida Nothing has been deleted. (Comment: Lie. Posts have been deleted recently on the SC facebook page)
    .
    Springs County Florida And if you read thru comments, we do not ban people that are opposed to this, just rude antagonistic people with no point and no knowledge of what civil discourse is. (Comment: So they admit they ban people with opposing views)
    .
    Springs County Florida 4. If you continue to be antagonistic, I will ban you from making comments. (Comment: this from folks who call Hutch a Communist Dictator. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.)
    .
    (Citizen) . . .Springs County please remain bound to the 1st Amendment on the threats of banning.
    .
    Springs County Florida this is a warning that if you infer that anyone that is supporting Springs county is a racist, you will be banned from this page.
    .
    (Citizen) their “mission” is heavily republican and the entire concept of Springs County is very scammy. They keep sharing things like this to make it sound like a good idea, but when pressured for real plans and questioned, they don’t plan on reducing taxes and actually plan on raising them
    .
    End quotes
    .
    Do regular people want these totalitarian opponents of Free Speech to run their new utopian rural government?
    .
    Anyone who questions the Leadership of Springs County is called “antagonistic” to the Great Cause, their posts are deleted, and they are blocked from posting on the SC facebook page. “Antagonistic” is anyone who does not goosestep to their narrow view of the world.
    .
    “Approved ” posts go “Yes to Springs County. We White, We Right, Gainesville Liburls BAD, Virus = Hoax, Masks BAD. Secede—NOW. Let’s have another mask free Covid spreading gathering soon. God Bless Dear Leader Lil Tim.”
    .
    Yes, operators of a private facebook page do not have to follow the First Amendment, as it only applies to governments. But do you really think these thin skinned short tempered bullies will quit banning people who disagree with them as soon as they have a government to run? The recent actions of the Gainesville City Commission regarding citizen comments and emails show otherwise, and these are liberal Democrats. Look under the skin of a conservative Republican and you find a closet fascist hiding there.
    .
    The counterrevolution of the proletariat against the oppressive government dictatorship has begun in Springs County. Long live the counterrevolution. Resist the new tyrants.
