There are people who need to think twice before publicly accusing and falsely reporting someone else with having the same illness they are suffering from.
How dare Councilwoman Lois Tarkanian falsely accuse and cause another person the trauma and vitriolic public shaming of being called a racist when she so strongly displays great racism and discrimination against the American people in order to favor many others who took possession of the home of others, taking entrance through an open window or a crack in the wall, because the front entrance was never opened to them.
This little woman had the audacity to publicly call the publisher of The Las Vegas Tribune a RACIST. He could be called many other things and be accused of whatever pleases others, but racist? RACIST? Like the old saying goes: “A thief believes everybody is a thief.”
Nobody told me about her disdain and contempt against the very people of this nation. I was personally a victim of Lois Tarkanian’s racism and discrimination, together with a tiny, little guy employed by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department as an office — which is why I headed this column “The donkey speaking of long ears.”
There was a time when this woman held some meetings at Clark High School, but I don’t know if she still does, because those meetings were useless. She used to sit in the corner, out of touch, with a pair of city employees and the little Metro officer all around her, conducting the meeting. Don’t even think that I am trying to insult him by calling him a little man. I stood next to him and we were my same height, and I am only 5’2”. After all I always believed that good perfume and poison both come in a small bottles. He just needed to be arrogant to help himself appear to be taller.
It was forbidden to speak English during those meetings because according to the officer, those present did not speak English. In other words, it was forbidden to speak our native language— English — in our own English-speaking country.
It was stated very clearly by the officer that one must speak Spanish during those meetings because the majority of the people did not speak English. Of course I got up and left because I don’t appreciate being discriminated against by the racism of the same Councilwoman who supposedly represents all residents of the neighborhood she was elected to serve, and by a Spanish-speaking officer.
Nothing of interest to the neighborhood was discussed during those useless meetings. They didn’t care to hear about and present a solution for how to control gang-infested activities across from the very high school where the meeting was held. The councilwoman was only interested in accommodating all the people who don’t even vote (or so think many people who don’t realize voting fraud is very much alive and practiced during every election).
The councilwoman was not even interested in hearing complaints about graffiti activity against nice homes in some parts of the neighborhood, because she is very well aware who perpetuated that graffiti.
Instead of discriminating against English speaking citizens and demanding people to accommodate and bow to all those she wants to protect, Mrs. Tarkanian was supposed to negotiate from that same Clark High School and the school district to open up the doors of the school in the evenings and offer some English classes, as is done in many other cities in the United States, and help them learn the language of the country they took possession of and became productive members of the community they treat as their own, instead of encourage them to think one way only.
For Mrs. Tarkanian to call someone else a racist would be like someone who takes the law wrongfully into his own hands and then accuses the police of not getting it right. She needs to look inside her heart and accept that she is a racist herself, and realize that we can see something in her that is very common among racists — they hate everyone else but themselves.
Therefore, when I hear about Lois Tarkanian, what I hear is “The donkey speaking of long ears!”
