Some people don't like Vern.
I monitored some of the last Liberty Net get-together on its stickam.com site, both audio and text. While the ham radio superpatriots were exhanging their right-wing beliefs on air, some were also communicating in the Stickam chatroom. What was interesting was the contrast between what was being said on the air by a particular Lib Netter and the reaction by the listeners participating in the chatroom. For example:
"n8wgm: If [Vern] was trained in propaganda, and admits it here, then why should we trust anything he says?"
This is a response to an on-air statement by Lib Netter Vern Kaspar that he was trained in propaganda analysis during World War II. I must admit the same thought crossed my mind. Maybe he's working for Them.
Seriously, I doubt Vern is an agent provocateur. But after seeing some of the chatroom comments, it's obvious that he's unintentionally provoking jealously.
Vern sounds like a pleasant gentleman. He's a good speaker, an asset for someone who owns a few radio stations. During his long life (he's 88 years old) Vern has spent a lot of time traveling abroad, visiting Russia, China, and many other points within the four corners of the world. And while I don't agree with everything he says, Vern sounds knowledgeable. But for some people, he's too well-traveled, too knowledgeable. (Edited chatroom comments follow.)
"n8wgm: There you go. HE's the expert."
"n8wgm: He talked to all the leaders of the world"
"wb8rav: ...just sitting here in wide eyed, rapt attention!...."
"n8wgm: They wanted his wisdom"
"n8wgm: Glad I can be here to be listening to the VERN net."
"thelibertynet: Vern certainly kills the rotation!"
"n8wgm: I, I , I , I, I, I, Vern is the EYE man."
"n8wgm: I did that. I had dinner with. I traveled to...I have a license.....I can speak...I can ....."
"wb8rav: Of course, Tovarich!"
"wb8rav: All Vern, ALL the time...what else you need?!"
"thelibertynet: self-satisfied adj having or showing a complacent satisfaction with oneself, one's own actions, behaviour, etc. self-satisfaction n"
"n8wgm: over half an hour of the marvelous Vern. I wonder when anyone will come on and say how wonderful it is to have Vern back."
OK, Vern does go on a bit with his on-air comments but maybe you could diplomatically tell him instead of acting like schoolkids jealous of the friendly rich boy with all the cool toys?
The Liberty Net meets every week to discuss the various threats to freedom, the lurking menaces biding their time until world domination is within easy reach. When the Illuminati and New World Order emerge from the shadows to take over the world, it's good to know that the Liberty Net gang is ready to protect individualism and resist the power of evil. That is, if they're not too busy backstabbing each other.
