Weber Chevrolet Heat Phone: Forced To Be Anonymous In Parkway
ST. LOUIS —
A bit of a battle went down on The Allman Report's Twitter feed Thursday after Jamie talked to Jeanie Ames, a lifelong resident, former student, and current mother to students in the Parkway School District in the West St. Louis County area who is running for a seat on the Parkway Education Board. Ames says she has been fed up with some of the board's questionable moves in the past few years.
Ames is one of many who are either conservative or critical of very liberal, left-wing concepts when it comes to education, especially sex education. This week, two St. Louis TV stations, St. Louis Public Radio, and three newspapers including the Post-Dispatch all brought a high level of news coverage to a very small race, giving credence to the opinion of a small number of people that Ames' political views are "racist", "xenophobic", "sexist", etc. The stories told of a group of "alarmed" parents.
We found that one parent tried to get attention on his Facebook page, and when that didn't work (because he himself noted that he, "didn't know many parents" at Parkway), he sent his diatribe to local media. About 75% of the St. Louis news media ran wildly with the story.
After we aired our interview with Ames, a viewer who called the Weber Chevrolet Heat Phone informed us of a culture of intolerance he experienced at Parkway. "Anonymous" says that he felt that he could not express his beliefs on many issues or he, too, would be vilified as a "racist"...just like Ames.
On Twitter, Ames said that she would not leave the race. Now, thanks to those "alarmed" parent(s), and a media willing to carry their water, Ames goes from a little known candidate in a little known race, to a much bigger name with a lot of people in her corner.
