During the past several years, Mike and Jeannine Robbins have become fixtures at Anaheim City Council meetings – part of a group of gadflies whose lives revolve around pontificating during public comments and heckling people with different political views.
The Robbins seem to view themselves as compassionate people whose activism is fueled by a concern for their fellow human beings – which makes for a jarring contrast with the ugliness of their behavior.
A few months ago, I was sitting behind the Robbins at a council meeting a few months ago. They, in turn, were sitting behind the execrable William Denis Fitzgerald. When Fitzgerald got up to make one of his cruel, misogynistic, racist, homophobic, obscenity-laden rants, Mike Robbins said to him, “Go get ’em!”
Mike Robbins has likened Anaheim residents who want the homeless out of city parks to Nazi death camp guards and KKK.
When people express views with which she disagrees, Jeannine Robbins doesn’t hesitate to heckle, harasses and otherwise interferes with their right to speak to the council. It’s disturbing behavior given that A) it’s wrong, B) she’s presumably capable of self-control and C) no one ever interferes with her right to express her views at the podium. Notwithstanding her goonish behavior towards her fellow citizens, she is running for city council from District 4.
In other words, the Robbins aren’t exactly the soul of grace and liberality.
So it’s unsurprising that yesterday, Mike Robbins was going door-to-door in District 5 dropping this dishonest, anonymous hit piece against Councilman Steve Faessel:
The flyer is a tissue of lies about Councilman Faessel, which is unsurprising since Mike Robbins lacks honor. Neither Faessel nor any councilmember voted to “evict” anyone from anywhere. Robbins knows that. And yet he deliberately misleads his fellow residents for political purposes.
Robbins accuses Faessel of supporting “O taxes for Disneyland for 45 years.” Again, false and ridiculous. Disneyland, in fact, is the biggest taxpayer in Anaheim. It pays an enormous amount of taxes annually. Again – Mike Robbins knows this, and consciously lies to his fellow residents anyway.
The flyer continues with a string of untruths, half-truths and distortions. It’s almost as if Robbins is incapable of honest and reasoned discussion, and believes he can only advance an argument through prevarication, exaggeration and deception.
“Somewhere in side [sic] every politician there has to be a human being,” reads Mike Robbins’ flyer. Funny – the same could be said of him.
Councilman Jose F. Moreno has made it clear in recent council meetings he’s going all out in next year’s election to replace Faessel with a minion, presumably AESD Board of Education member Ryan Ruelas. With increasing frequency, Moreno publicly and dishonestly attacks his colleague’s integrity and humanity.
Robbins’ distribution of a mendacious hit flyer is a reflection and extension of Moreno’s puerile behavior from the dais – a preview of what is coming in the next 12 months. For the Morenos and Robbins and the rest of that progressive Left cadre, their noble ends justifies their ignoble means, and all other considerations are subsumed to the acquisition of political power.
Please keep exposing them for the liars and evil persons they are!!
Unbelievable, thank you for exposing those LIARS. Shame on the Robbins and Jose Moreno for trying to mislead and manipulate their fellow Anaheim residents.
Well good for them, Mike and Jeanine Robbins are the finest people I know. Faessel has consistently proven to be Sidhu’s puppet. Sidhu on the dais tells Faessel how to vote. One time we all witnessed Sidhu reaching over pressing the button to cast Faessel’s vote for him. Short timer Faessel has consistently voted against his constituents and did his puppet dance. If this blog was not sponsored by the Devil’s servants Disney and the chamber of commerce they might tell the truth
Thank you Matthew Cunningham for revealing the unscrupulous and unethical behavior of these residents. What an embarrassment for Anaheim!
I’ve personally seen the Robbins make fools of themselves in public many times. They are so ill informed, but what’s worse than any of it is the passion they have for proving themselves stupid. Its embarrassing.
I know Faessel, and he is the kindest politicians I’ve ever met. He is sincere and genuine. I wish the Robbins could see themselves for how ridiculous they look from our side. And then move far, far away.
Try not to give stupid people any attention.
They are nobody.
Jose Moreno and his regime are trying to take over the council majority in the same way they have taken over the school districts. Make no mistake Jose is out for Jose. DO NOT VOTE FOR ANYONE WHO ASSOCIATES WITH HIM. DO NOT VOTE FOR ANNEMARIE RANDLE TREJO OR JANNINE ROBBINS.
Do your homework before you vote and do not trust the smear campaign that is already on its way = lies, smoke and mirrors. Relect Faaessel he is caring and tries to be fair to all people.
Can you please make an official request from Dr. Moreno and Ms. Barnes to comment on Orange Juice blog contributor, William Fitzgeralds racist comments directed to the Mayor ” Go back to where you came from…….”
I find Dr. Moreno’s race baiting beyond ironic and hypocrytical, when his media champion Vern Nelson’s Orange Juice Blog has Fitz blog under a fake name. If someone told Jose to “Go back to Mexico” and followed that by hurtful permanent attacks, Jose, Ryan and Jose would go bananas. I stead I WATCHED Mike and Jeanie Robbins laugh and cheer when the Mayor was called a dirty bastard, or something like that.
Vern is a tool. Vern is a FELON. I see some real PR challenges emerging for Jose.
