Eagle forum participants would be laughable if they weren’t so scary

(Bryan Schott | The Salt Lake Tribune) Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes chats with Rep. Chris Stewart at the Utah Eagle Forum convention on January 8, 2022.

While I’m always grateful for the First Amendment and its guarantee of a free press, at the same time I still feel bad for the reporters in Utah who have to report and print details of the infamous Eagle Forum conference in Utah. ‘Utah. The recent report in the Tribune of the Jan. 8 meeting of Utah’s craziest man sent shivers down my spine.

At least the writer was free to freely use the term “fringe” to describe Gayle Ruzika and her gang of deceived sheep, including our Utah Attorney General, Blanding’s 15 Minutes of Fame poster. Warhol, Rep. Phil Lyman, most of our other elected officials, and a whopping 83.33% of our 6-member congressional delegation.

Fortunately, the article did not provide us with all the details, but it was enough to read that our Republican Uber friends continued to harp on the harmful effects of vaccination, the (disproven) effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, and the painting of Dr Anthony Fauci as the leader of a ‘religious cult’. What a cruel irony that the participants had the audacity to call anyone else a “cult”.

This bunch of disreputable siblings would be laughable if they weren’t so creepy.
