Finally, a Writer Takes A Stand Against Baseless Political Accusations

Roy Brown, the victim of the outlandish accusation

Roy Brown, the victim of the outlandish accusation

In a political climate festooned with attack ads, whisper campaigns, deceitful mailers and robo-calls all asserting a plethora of false claims and stretched truths, it’s easy to tire of such rampant vilification.

But, every so often the condition reaches a breaking point; accusations are made and things are said which cannot and should not be tolerated. Something so vile, it forces those of us who favor a civil dialogue among our elected officials, to stand up and say STOP!

Recently, Montana’s gubernatorial candidate, Roy Brown was accused of being, of all things a vegetarian!

Now, this vegan writer has seen his share of mudslinging and baseless accusations before, but never something of this caliber. Vegetarians are compassionate people who care about the welfare of animals; the environment and often the health and well being of their bodies – we should not be attributing these outlandish qualities to Roy Brown.

I know Vegetarians, and you Mr. Brown are no vegetarian!

    “I am not and have never been a vegetarian,” Brown said. “I am disgusted by the baseless allegation that I am a vegetarian.”

    Wow….just….WOW!@!

    Feel silly for asking, but this article was fake, right? It had the ring of Onion-esque satire.

    lizzle,

    The accusation was real (see link), my take on the matter though, could possibly be described as satire, yes…

    Yeah, I was talking about the actual article seeming fake.
    This line seems so contrived:

    “Asked to respond, Brown told me, “That’s ludicrous, and I’m not talking about Ludacris. I am not now and I have never been a fan of any kind of music except country music. Those Democrats are notorious for spreading these kinds of lies – and I’m not talking about the late rapper Notorious B.I.G., who was tragically gunned down in 1997, and who remains a personal hero of mine.”

    Well, if it’s not satire, at least I found humor in it. :)

    OK, so the accusation was real, but maybe the author Ed Kemmick ran with it a little to satirize “elitism” as a political smear? Or, maybe I just need to laugh because I’m having a crappy day.

    A slightly less flowery take on the story (also from the Billings Gazette).

    But note that the hip-hop quote is from Taylor Brown, who is different from Roy Brown. (45 seconds of careless of Googling didn’t help me figure out if they’re even related to each other.)
