Strange Twist: Rep. Jesse White Calls His Own Words “Hate Speech”

For some time MDN has chronicled the sad story of western PA Rep. Jesse White, an anti-driller with a grudge against Range Resources who turned to using fake online IDs in order to trash talk his own constituents (see How the Mighty Have Fallen: PA Rep White Admits Guilt, Not Sorry). White eventually (months later) saw the error of his ways when he was outed at Harvard summer school and his “peers” told him “Jesse, you done wrong” (see PA Rep. White Says Fake IDs were “Error in Judgment”).

So get this. Some of White’s constituents, rightly outraged that he is still in office, put his own fake ID words on a big poster board and showed it at an information table set up at the local Fall Festival at an area park. Local Democrat officials were miffed that someone had the audacity to tell the truth about one of their own–in public! Some of the local Dems resigned from their respective boards in protest over the booth. Jesse called his own words on that poster “hate speech.” Huh? That’s right–the fact that someone took his exact words and showed them to local residents (because the media continues to fail to do its job), and White said it’s hate speech. Yeah Jesse, we’re glad you agree that what you previously said is indeed “hate speech”…
