Comrade Thompson Outraged Snarky Blog Best Source of Inner Party Information

At KBOO fm Jim Thompson opines his questions haven't been answered:

Open Question about tomorrow's board meeting?
The other day I posted a question. It goes like this...
Simple and open question to the powers that be. What is this 7/15 board meeting about? It is off-schedule -- that implies something special is going on, but there is no public notice (that I can see), regarding the purpose.
Public Notice
KBOO Board of Directors Meetings for July 2013
Monday, July 15th, 2013, 6pm
Monday, July 29th, 2013, 6pm
20 SE 8th Avenue, Portland, OR
So what is this meeting about? Is this something the members should be aware of?
I'm a member and wanna know.............
SO ....................................................................
That date has come and gone. And the only online source with any related information seems to be ... This is a satirical site bordering on ugly and slanderous.
How has it come to be that a website such as this should become the best source of current information?

Backhanded complement received, Comrade!

But as flattering as this sounds, we suspect Comrade Thompson is overstating the situation.
Comrade Thompson is perfectly capable of showing up when Glorious leader calls and made these two videos of one Board meeting, clearly pushing Glorious Leader's agenda that this was DEMOCRACY IN ACTION, instead a cluster fuck of geriatric Tea Party rejects:

He posted these to Indymedia:

We should probably be nicer since he was broadminded enough to include this blog URL in his video description:

Shot from the back wall of KBOO Studio One. Board meetings usually consist of the board folks and a handful of observers. This nite was different. The room was full to overflowing. This borrowed camera had some limitations. It stopped recording abruptly between the first and the next, then ran out of memory.

This is the beginning of the public speaking part of the meeting.
More info ...

The meeting was much longer than what I was able to record. The clock on the wall tells some of that story.

And while we were wrong about Thompson being the one saying "Pinko Commie" was the same as "Black Mexican Whore Killers", or something, he was there to help set up Joe Uris to say these things, as blogged here:

This was part of a nasty, er, Glorious Gambit, to pin a T-shirt only the reactionary right wouldn't get, onto EVIL FITCH, even though staff(Ani & Co) designed and approved it.  So far as we can tell, Comrade Thompson has never spoken out about either the setting up of Uris or the LIES about who made the T-shirt.

Thompson has been in Glorious Leader's circles of acquaintance since 2006:

9:30-10am PRESSWATCH Teresa Mitchell goes full tilt into this week's 'news you're not supposed to know'
10-10:30am STEPHAN MINDE, conductor of the Portland Opera 1970-84, and his wife Edith, talk with Jim Thompson about their lives, travels, careers--and life together
We don't know what game he's playing, but it's odd, if Thompson want's to know what the hell the Inner Party is doing, that he doesn't use messaging email to ASK THERESA OR ANI

The workings of the Inner Party are mysteries known to only a luck few!  Just remember:  Glorious Leader is Watching You.  

That will keep you on the straight and narrow.

    1. "ugly and slanderous"
      Like blaming Fitch for a T-Shirt his own friends made and approved?

  2. Replies
    1. Which one? They're both scary!

  3. Ya know? Jim might be waking up from the SaveKBOO nightmare. He's asking the right questions. Let's see if he comes round.

    1. Maybe. It's odd he hasn't just emailed the usual suspects though.

    2. "Jim might be waking up from the SaveKBOO nightmare."

      HA HA HA HA
