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.

Ferguson will sell guns. Our gun culture is a legacy of slavery. Whites will arm up just like the slave owners of the Antebellum South.

Every day on extremist radio, someone will say, “A race war is coming”

In 1968 after Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated and the riots began Larry Pratt bought his first firearm. 

Christian Identity, which Larry Pratt is invested in, has this line in it’s basic “Seedlines”:

“Whites in America (the true "House of Israel") must battle bloodily to usher in a period of Godly rule prior to the Second Coming. That means a race war.”

Seedlines and The Garden of Eden -How the Christian Identity Movement Began - Southern Poverty Law Center.

"Coatesville’s connection to Larry Pratt had it’s origins following the Ruby Ridge bloodshed and the 1992 Christian Identity Estes Park, Colorado meeting."

Whether the threat of a “race war” is real or not it sells an awful lot of guns and it’s a huge vote getter for the Republican Party. 

I think Larry Pratt inspires people like State Trooper murderer Eric Frein and Timothy McVeigh the Oklahoma City Bomber.

A Conversation Between Josh Horwitz and Alex Zaitchik (Full Video):

"It was during his involvement in Central American policy and supporting counterinsurgencies around the world that Pratt made multiple trips to Guatemala to observe rural "Civil Defense Patrols." Contemporary human rights observers (and two subsequent Truth Commissions) consider them "death squads" for their role in killing and torturing civilians. But Pratt found much to admire. He combined observations from these visits with similarly impressed notes on the Civilian Home Defense Forces, vigilante patrols in Ferdinand Marcos' Philippines, for a slim book published by the Gun Owners Foundation in 1990, Armed People Victorious. In it, he praises the leadership of Efrain Rios Montt, the country's military leader during 1982 and 1983 who greatly expanded the civil defense patrols. Twenty years later, Guatemalan judges would find Montt guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity. One Amnesty International Report from Montt's tenure detailed massacres in 60 Indian villages over a three-month period, leaving more than 2,500 dead. As late as 2001, Pratt was publically praising Montt as a "powerful Christian leader." 
In the concluding chapter of Armed People Victorious, titled "Bringing the Lessons Home," Pratt writes: The War on Drugs can be won the same way the guerilla insurgencies were pushed back in Guatemala and the Philippines... The history of the United States for years before and after the founding of the Republic was the history of an armed people with functioning militias involved in civil defense... While the United States has forgotten its successes in this area, other countries have rediscovered them. It is time that the United States return to reliance on an armed people. There is no acceptable alternative.”
Coatesville’s connection to Larry Pratt had it’s origins following the Ruby Ridge bloodshed and the 1992 Christian Identity Estes Park, Colorado meeting.
'The most important event in this development was a three- day meeting convened in October 1992 by Christian Identity leader Pete Peters. Christian Identity maintains that Aryans are the true Jews, that blacks are a pre-Adamic subhuman species, and that a race war is coming, after which whites will establish a "Christian government." These were the baseline ideas uniting the 150 far-right leaders who answered Peters' call to action at a YMCA hall in Estes Park, Colorado. Among those present was Larry Pratt. According to media reports, Pratt railed against the 14th Amendment and delivered one of his favorite lines: "The Second Amendment ain't about duck hunting." 
I think Pat Sellers learned some things from Larry Pratt.  Sellers organized the “Save our Farm” campaign and it’s 32 frivolous lawsuits against the City of Coatesville that nearly bankrupted our city.

He went door to door asking people to run for Coatesville City Council. The “Bloc of Four” was the result of Pat Seller’s efforts. 

I believe Sellers does not believe in government and government includes police. He once recommended laying off police to balance the city budget. 

Shortly after Seller’s Coatesville government took effect about one half of our police department, including Chief Bellizzie, left. 

That loss of Coatesville Police meant one officer on duty for the entire city at night. An unforeseen result of Sellers’ extremist ideology was the arson fires of 2008. 

In his second run for Congress Pat Sellers proudly exclaimed his John Birch Society background. 

Here is where Larry Pratt and Coatesville's connection to the Christian Identity Movement comes in:

Pat Sellers ran for Pennsylvania’s 6th Congressional District twice. In his 1996 run for Congress Sellers true colors were unfurled. Patrick Henry Sellers consulted with and got a campaign assist from Larry Pratt. Here is where the Christian Identity Estes Park meeting comes in:

"Larry Pratt was the keynote speaker in a fundraiser for Pat Sellers in his first run for Pennsylvania's 6 Congressional District in 1996. Sellers ran again in 2010.

From the Lancaster Intelligencer Journal: 
"Pratt is executive director of Gun Owners of America. He left the Buchanan Campaign after the media reported on his ties to the Ku Klux Klan and the white supremacist group Aryan Nation.  
Pratt has indorsed Sellers and will be the keynote speaker at a fund-raising dinner for Sellers next week.  
Sellers said the allegations against Pratt are untrue and that he sought Pratt's support because of his expertise on gun issues."
