Insane Jane has a long history of despising conservative groups across Nebraska, especially Americans For Prosperity.
The Americans For Prosperity Foundation held their “Running on Empty” National Tour in Omaha and Grand Island this week. Both events had a crystal clear message: Gas prices are too high and it’s hurting our economy and the poorest of American families.
Insane Jane decided to hijack both events to promote her pipeline agenda.
As best we can tell, AFP has never made any statements on their website or taken sides on the TransCanada pipeline.
We’re going to report on both events, so let us break it down:
Omaha – June 8th at Walnut Grove Park:
First off, there was no “bus”. Insane Jane tells people to “Take a stand”. We’re not sure what that means, exactly, since this event was about a concern over high gas prices and the AFP folks are saying they want lower gas prices. Logic tells us that if BoldNebraska protested this event, they therefore want higher gas prices. Big surprise.
Apparently Jane wasn’t at this event…
One reader of this website said she counted 134 people at this event. We actually counted the number of people in one of the photos we were sent, and there were indeed well over 60. How is this shameful? We’ve seen many BoldNebraska events where less than a dozen people show up. Like that time that Insane Jane convinced her hippies to put black plastic trash bags over themselves and roll down a hill to simulate an oil spill. We’re glad to report nobody broke their hip at that event.
Here’s the 6 people who were “pushing back” at the Omaha event:
Wow, now that’s pushing back. In all fairness, there were also two BOLD guys in suits who showed up late. That makes 8. Wow. We also heard that the supporters of high gas prices were driving gas guzzling vehicles, which is just ironic and bizarre.
Who wears a suit with a jacket to an evening rally in a park? Weird. We wonder what would happen if folks showed up to the next Bold event with signs that said “BoldNebraska is Running on B.S.” We’re really not sure what the point was to the sign, but the gal with the peace symbol shirt seems to be having a grand old time.
Grand Island – June 9th at Stolley Park:
Insane Jane did show up to this event, and so did about a half dozen of her dried-up and crusty old hippie BoldNebraska followers. The sign in the background, “Save the world from the Kochs” is especially amusing. Americans For Prosperity is funded by evil oil tycoon billionaires who make decisions based on greedy profits! Oh, the humanity! And then the Koch brothers fork money over to fund Americans For Prosperity and for the Koch Environmental Projects and lots of other things. C’mon, BoldNebraska – are we really supposed to believe that you’re not being funded by Susie Buffet, George Soros and some other left-wing commies? Do you really want to open up this discussion? Becuase we’re happy to have it if you’d like us to start looking into your books. By the way, who really does fund BoldNebraska? Hmmm, maybe a call down to the Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Office on Monday morning would be would answer more of our questions. Where’s the transparency, Insane Jane?
It was overheard that after some proding, this old hippie finally admitted she wanted to see higher gas prices. From the KHAS news spot: “These protestors hijacked the event with their own mission: To discuss environmental issues. Particualarly, the proposed TransCanadian oil pipeline”. Unfortunately, her admission to wanting higher gas prices didn’t make the news spot.
Here’s an analogy: KHAS is to Insane Jane as CNN is to President Obama. KHAS could have chosen to include interview footage of Lt. Governor Sheehy, Congressman Smith, AFP President Tim Phillips, State Senators Gloor or Fulton, GI Mayor Vavricek in their news spot, but instead chose Insane Jane. We’re not surprised.
We would have loved to have been a fly on baby Willa’s head in this exchange between Insane Jane and one of our favorite Conservative State Senators, Tony Fulton. We may need to hold a caption contest for this photo in the future.
We’re pretty sure she meant “afp”, not “agp”.
We’ll be looking for ideas from our readers on specifics about hijacking BoldNebraska’s future events. Sometimes, although it’s not our style, we need to fight fire with fire. And this is just another example in a long list of reasons why BoldNebraska has forced our hand to put together this blog.
