Ryan Messano #homophobia timesheraldonline.com

A local resident was removed from Tuesday’s Vallejo City Council meeting after he made homophobic remarks.

The incident began when Ryan Messano questioned why Brenda Crawford, who is an African-American and openly gay, was being nominated as the city’s new representative to the Senior Coalition of Solano County.

Messano began his remarks by explaining that if the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was in the room, he would not have approved of Crawford’s appointment.

“We now have a nest of homosexuals infesting our city right now — who have absolutely no business getting involved in our politics,” Messano said as he looked at the audience in attendance.

“None!” he added.

After Messano repeated his previous comments, Vallejo Mayor Bob Sampayan interrupted.

“Mr. Messano, I’m going to stop you,” Sampayan said.

Messano refused to stop talking.

“You’re going to stand down,” Messano shouted to Sampayan. “I have free speech in America and you’re not taking it from me.”

Sampayan called for a recess to the meeting, while also asking Vallejo police in attendance to remove Messano from the chambers.

The microphone to the public comment podium was turned off as three members of Vallejo police, including the chief of police, attempted to escort Messano from the building.

“I’m not going anywhere!” Messano shouted, his voice being picked up by the chamber’s other microphones.

“You communists in this room are going to face the music,” Messano added before those microphones were turned off as well.

At the request of Sampayan, the council left the dais until Messano was escorted out.

Messano eventually left the room after a brief standoff with police.

“His comments were disparaging, disturbing, and inciting anger and disruptive to the entire proceedings,” Sampayan said in an interview during a council recess later in the evening.

Sampayan said the City Attorney’s Office, along with Vallejo Police Department, are exploring taking out a temporary restraining order against Messano.

Reached by phone Wednesday, Messano said the mayor was acting in a hypocritical manner for removing him but not the pro-cannabis speakers who, according to Messano, verbally attacked the City Attorney during council hearings on marijuana.

Messano said he isn’t a bigot but “attacks on the family need to be confronted.”

“I’m not advocating harming anyone,” he added.

When told about the move by the city regarding a possible temporary restraining order, Messano said he is looking into filing a lawsuit against the city for denying his First Amendment rights to free speech.

Richard Porter, executive director of the Global Center for Success (GCS), confirmed to the Times-Herald on Wednesday that Messano is no longer a board member for the nonprofit, which assists homeless in the area.

“His views/viewpoints are his and they do not reflect the views of GCS,” Porter said about Messano, who left the board three months ago.

In February, Messano got into a verbal spat with Sampayan regarding whether the mayor or anyone in attendance had read biographies about the nation’s Founding Fathers.

Our Founding Fathers did not give us the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms for it to be taken away by politicians who refuse to address the three real causes of gun crime: Mind altering drugs, pornography escalation into violence, and radical Islam. Not a single mass shooting in America, from Columbine in 1999 forward, has ever occurred without one or more of these factors being present. Why do our bureaucrat liberal politicians desperately want to take our guns away, but refuse to give up the guns protecting themselves? Are their lives more important than ours, and worth protecting but ours are not?

It is said that the great Japanese World War II genius Admiral Yamamoto, who was behind the Pearl Harbor attack, expressed reservations about attacking the United States mainland, because he is reputed to have said (though liberals will dispute this to the high heavens) that “behind every blade of grass is a gun.” Anyone knowing Yamamoto’s genius knows it is something he could have said. Not only does massive gun ownership of citizens ward off impending invasions, but it also, ensures our own government does not tyrannically trample the rights of Americans. Let us not forget that before Hitler, Stalin, and Mao began their atrocities, they instituted “gun control.” When the citizens no longer had guns, they no longer had any will to resist murderous government policies.

Today, we volunteer not to read, and are unfortunately foolish by default, and now our greedy and power hungry rulers want our guns to ease us into slavery. They whine and cry about the murders that their own disastrous social policies cause. They love the chaos these vehicles produce, as it increases their power.

Let’s not be fooled by the Democrats’ temper tantrums. They are badly deluded, and foolish. Speaking of which, what in the world are John Garamendi and Mike Thompson doing joining in these “protests”? Please return to your districts and take care of the sad state of affairs here, and cease trying to enslave your citizens even further. Unless I hear the words radical Islam coming out of your mouths, I really shouldn’t be hearing a peep from either of you two on taking anyone’s guns away. And you both have a lot of nerve, because you are proud gun owners yourselves. The latest ridiculous efforts to deny guns to those on the terror watch list, sounds really good. But, unfortunately the terror watch list often places the wrong people on these lists, and it is quite difficult to get ones name off. Getting anything done through the government is difficult, and the government should never have the right to put people on lists to deny them their God-given right to bear arms without due process. If they are a terrorist, and evidence is available, then going through a court should not be too hard.

We have a glorious heritage, and it is time to go back. It is time for us to start living the lives our Founders lived, and we will then have the peace, joy, prosperity, and freedom they enjoyed. Let’s avoid the clever lies of the left, and let’s start honestly looking at history for ourselves. If you have not read history books outside of your college, that were written more than 50 years ago, you probably know Marxist revisionist history, and are misinformed. If your loves in life are television and movies and you seldom read worthwhile literature, I hate to inform you, but you are easy to control, and you are being enslaved.

Let me close with the words of Alexander Hamilton, “For it is a truth, which the experience of ages has attested, that the people are always most in danger when the means of injuring their rights are in the possession of those of whom they entertain the least suspicion.” Let’s wake up to the unscrupulous knaves who are Democrats, who are running our nation into the ground. Let’s call them to account, and let’s reclaim the glorious heritage we were given, so that we too may leave a legacy that will be remembered 1,000 years from now. We cannot escape history. We will be judged. We will either be found foolish and wanting, or wise and inspired, the choice is ours, our destiny is in our hands.
