Photos: Frustration and fury at the Anchorage Assembly

On September 28 and 29, the Anchorage Assembly met to discuss AO 2021-91, the controversial “mask mandate.” On both nights, the Assembly chambers were filled almost entirely with unmasked individuals protesting the proposed mandate. The mood in the room was charged, and both nights were filled with near-constant interruptions, heckling, and outbursts targeted at sitting Assembly members. Many individuals wore yellow Stars of David, meant to evoke parallels between Covid restrictions and the Holocaust, and repeatedly invoked Nazi history and imagery.

Some of those present were respectful and provided thoughtful testimony, while others shouted, jeered, danced, or made violent remarks. On September 28, a man near the press box stated that it was “time to get out the gallows” for the Assembly. On September 29, a man in the front row told a confused security guard attempting to remove a disruptive individual that “Alaska is a stand-your-ground state” and that continued removals could result in the killing of security personnel. Multiple people were arrested at the September 29 meeting, including one individual with a firearm.

On the same day, a man providing testimony called Christopher Constant, who is openly gay, a “cock sucker.” The audience responded with sustained cheering, laughter, flag-waving, and applause.

Just imagine how it will help local businesses if the bases should put heavier restrictions on

The pandemic provided an avenue to reverse the concentration of economic power and its negative effects. Instead, most people chose to go the other direction (didn’t the net worth of Jeff Bezos double?). Understanding the effects of this stranglehold is far more important than understanding the machinations of one or another titular head of government and their cult of personality. I’m sure most people will never get it because they’re addicted to the level of convenience they receive from our current economy.

Go look at old lynching mob photos and you will see the same celebration of hate. Thanks Bronson and Allard.

They hate America and most of all, hate democracy. That is the purpose of disgusting behavior at a public meeting – to attempt to disrupt and destroy it. Yes, those faces really do look like lynchers!

Who made the stars? Who handed them out?

Why is the press not covering the fear these unveiled threats to the Jewish community caused?

Why is there not a public movement to remove the Mayor for supporting threatening the Jewish community of Alaska?

Oh yeah-now I remember-everyone hates the jews

It is crude to use that term however in the context of what happened next it is justified. Do you know that many of the Bronson supporters immediately cheered the use of that derisive term by a radical member of their group? Perhaps that disgusting public display by Bronson’s supporters was the reason to use that term?

Oh, your poor child. Won’t someone think of the children before using homophobic comments toward elected officials in a public meeting.

Looks like Mayor Bronson finally realized that a little leadership goes a long way, or perhaps his legal advisors got ahold of him. And it made a difference – pictures on adn from yesterday’s meeting do not have a single yellow star in sight. There will always be some filled with hate and blaming others for their problems, but is it good leadership that keeps those people from taking over the discourse.

You really like apostrophes, but don’t really know how to use them. You sure “……….” isn’t your own name? If it quacks like a duck… be a man and say what you mean.

FYI, homophobia doesn’t mean fear of gay people. Homophobia is the fear that you yourself are gay. When you do homophobia in public, everyone can see your fear.

Embarrassing to not be smart enough to grow and kill your own food, leaving yourself vulnerable to queer kike shutdowns.

The asshat pointing two fingers at Dunbar is Skip Meyers, CEO of Rainbow International, a franchise deep cleaning service in Anchorage. I offer that in case you need that type of service, you can go elsewhere.
