Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog

Public Corruption in Chester County, PA

I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

Some rambling about the local political condition here in Chester County

The local Chester County Republican Party is weakened by the total meltdown of the Republican National Party now firmly under the control of Palin, Norquist and Limbaugh.

It appears as though a well organized ultra right wing group of local Republican “Tea Parties for Palin”, anti-Darwin, Confederate Flag waving types are rising out of the ashes of the former staid old foxhunting and country club Eisenhower Republican Party here in Chester County. It looks like the local Chester County Republicans may condense into Ideologues who are very good at energizing each other and not much else.

They have formed a local group called “Chester County Action, Americans for Christian Traditions in our Nation” (sounds more than a little KKKish) and a Pennsylvania wide “Pennsylvania Conservative Council”.


All it would take is a light to moderate countywide voter turnout to reduce the Republican Parties influence in Chester County even further. A heavy voter turnout might almost eliminate the local Republican Party.

At the same time the Chester Democratic Party is growing with each Election; each Election, not just the General Election in the fall. You also need to keep in mind that the “Country Club Republicans” of the Eisenhower area are living and possibly reflexively voting to the memory of that long gone Republican Party. And most of those Republicans are in their 80s.

The flag of that “Eisenhower Republican Party” ideology has been picked up by the Democratic Party that now represents the views of the overwhelming majority of Americans. That fact is being demonstrated by voting patterns all across our Nation.

We have to be careful what we wish for. It is not a good thing to have a one party system. It would be much better to choose from two qualified candidates from either party than to choose from one qualified Democrat and one tinfoil hat, extremist screwball Republican. The tinfoil hat Republican types are usually very well armed and if frustrated enough could turn to violence.

There are some interesting articles on the local condition here:

“Creationism” seems to have entered the West Chester Area School district race with one candidate’s controversial statement at a forum before the primary election (see “WCASD candidate Wingerter on creationism”).

Many factors cited in defeat of Chesco incumbents

  1. "Hate Bill" Favoritism

    If "hate bill"-obsessed Congress can't protect Christians from "gays" as much as it wants to protect "gays" from Christians, will Congress be surprised if it can't protect itself from most everyone? If "hate bills" are forced on captive Americans, they'll still find ways to sneakily continue to "plant" Biblical messages everywhere. By doing so they'll hasten God's judgment on their oppressors as revealed in Proverbs 19:1. (See related web items including "David Letterman's Hate, Etc.," "Separation of Raunch and State," "Michael the Narc-Angel," and "Bible Verses Obama Avoids.") Since Congress can't seem to legislate "morality," it's making up for it by legislating "immorality"!

  2. You mention the School Board race in the West Chester Area School District. This is a perfect example of the "Teabag Republicans" trying to inject their ideology into the main stream community. The "Gang of Four" Republican candidates were recruited by Chester County Action an ultra right pro-life, bitter group of ideologs. Sean Carpenter, the leader of the "Gang of Four", said they were thrilled to be endorsed by the Republican party because this is the road to "taking back" the party.

    The school board is no place for this. We don't need a Dover, Pa or OJR situation in our schools. Further, this cynical use of our children through the school board to promote the political ambitions of "The Gang of Four" is wrong.

    Fortunatly, this time, there is a slate of four highly dedicated professional women endorsed by the Democrats to save our schools from this Republican "Gang of Four".

    I encourage all voters in the WCASD to look closely at the candidates running for school board. Make sure you vote for what we need to run the schools not a right wing political gang with negative intentions.

  3. If you put in any single one of the following phrases mentioned by “Anonymous” in a separate Google searches; "Separation of Raunch and State," "Michael the Narc-Angel," and "Bible Verses Obama Avoids.": you will come up with many web pages that have something concerning all three. I don’t know where they originated but as I see it nearly all are connected anti-Semitic white supremacist web sites. The rest are counter-white supremacist websites. Just another example of where the leadership of the Republican Party is headed in Chester County.
