Brown County Commissioner Sutton Not Good at Checking Sources
By Cory Allen Heidelberger on 2015-11-30
Brown County Commission chairman Duane Sutton is up for re-election next year. Yet if his Facebook page accurately reflects his primary concerns, Commissioner Sutton is much less worried about mundane Brown County issues and far more worried about free speech, crime and race, worker rights, child-rearing, the federal judicial and executive branches, armed revolution, and the end of the world. Here’s a sample of Commissioner Sutton’s public posts yesterday:
Strangely, that last image of the Supreme Court links to an apoca-prepper site connected with FamilySurvivalSystem.com and ClickBank, which apparently spam folks with pitches for survival and preparedness courses. The site plays an odd animated video dedicated to scaring viewers into believing a vast economic collapse from which Government cannot save them is imminent.
Say what you want about Commissioner Sutton’s casual (??) political spoutings. I might sound the greatest alarm about an elected official’s inability to critically evaluate his sources. Commissioner Sutton cites bogus statistics from a non-existent source a week after the press widely debunked them, then links to an end-times video that predicts an American economic catastrophe by 2014. We can only hope Commissioner Sutton bases his county policy on more reliable sources.
