In a recent column in The Federalist, “The new totalitarians are here,” Tom Nichols (U.S. Naval War College and Harvard Extension School) wrote about the difference between authoritarians and totalitarians. “Simply put, authoritarians merely want obedience, while totalitarians, whose rule is rooted in an ideology, want obedience and conversion …. The authoritarians are the guys in charge who want to stay in charge, and don’t much care about you, or what you’re doing, so long as you stay out of their way …. Totalitarians are a different breed. These are the people who have a plan, who think they see the future more clearly than you or who are convinced they grasp reality in a way that you do not ….” In other words, disagreement is not allowed as their viewpoints are superior.

Nichols used the recent example of actor George Takei and his “odious attack on Justice Clarence Thomas” to demonstrate totalitarianism. Even though the Supreme Court ruled in favor of gay marriage, “Takei called Thomas a ‘clown in blackface’ and said Thomas had ‘abdicated’ his status as an African-American.”

"but they got a twofer with the turncoat actions of Council President Bud Otis"
Yup, and a many of us are quite proud of a man that can think for himself, gathers all the facts, then makes decisions that SERVE the best interests of the county. You know... "serve"... not yourself, not your donors, but the greater good. Nice try though.

If the NC Senate Bill 2 reaches the SCOTUS I'm curious how will Justice Thomas rule.[beam]

Sallyforth

I wonder what Keough thinks/feels when he reads these comments? Not one single person stood up for him or echoed his remarks. It must feel horrible to be so, so very wrong.

public-redux

I imagine he thinks that he is right, that people who have a different opinion are: 1) wrong; 2) narrow-minded ideological zealots if they are Democrats; 3) not "True" Republicans if they are Republicans.

I've seen some interesting research that shows pointing out that someone's belief is factually incorrect results in their believing it even more strongly.

Um, the headline is mis-spelled at least online.
It was intended to be a growth area. Ironically, in its present state it appealed to the kind of people who wouldn't go for it. Buyers aren't looking at overall plans. They assume. They value the area as it is and figure it's worth the fight. I'm sure if I am getting anything wrong, someone will correct me. Recently I watched Mr. McKay on TV speak exceedingly respectfully at the podium on issues he cares deeply about. I agree Mr. Chmelik is in a spot. Some of us are just observers watching from more congested surroundings, not our fight, but we get it. The fact that I read about the 5 car pileup on 194 just before this letter doesn't help. Our air was "orange" by early June and still we're looking to cram in more people. They live there. Listen to them.

des21

You're right to a certain extent Dwaserba. We fell in love with our house and land when we bought and I wish it wouldn't change at all but I realize that some growth is to be expected and we knew the plans. To some extent mass planning with high density makes sense in Urbana as it is right next to the highway. That's not as true in Monrovia with two fairly narrow roads (80 in parts & 75 all the way) offering access.

We shall see. I just wish a Republican who was not involved in the building trade would run for office in this county! (Other than Mr. Otis I guess.)

threecents

Political party does not matter much in county govt.

DickD

It does in Frederick County when the Republicans put up lousy canidates and go in and pull the R lever without thinking. We could have had a real lousy council member, in Ellen, where are my goats, Bartlett, in District 1, if it were not for Jerry Donald, who saved the day. God help us all!

threecents

Good point.

Nicki

Agreed, DickD. I still shudder to think how it could have been different. Are local R's really that dumb? Or was she just a place-holder for Blaine, Shreve or Delauter should any of them have lost?
Can you imagine what our council would be like if Blaine was sitting in Jerry's seat?
Very pleased with Jerry Donald, in D1. I would also "cross over" to vote for Mr. Otis should he decide to run again.

des21

Way not to go on the attack there Nikki "are local republicans really that dumb?" Way to remain classy and above the fray.

gary4books

"next to the highway?"

I suspect you mean 270, but I drive on 355 and it goes through Urbana, too. Roads can be enhanced, given enough funds. Why not let the developers pay that bill up front?

Tigerzord

I find this a bit comical - Does Mr. Keough even know who "these" people are? "Rale" people? Let me sum it up, we are a group of citizens (mostly, but not ALL from D2) who are not only against this type of growth, but are also against lies, deception and unethical behavior. That is exactly what we saw through 13 nights of hearings with the BoCC and FcPc. That is why "we" were a strong voice! Corruption exposed is a BIG motivator!

While growth may have always been in the picture - one needs to sit back and consider all the ramifications - what has changed and what has not. Is growth needed? Has the infrastructure been running current with growth plans? Are there real plans? NO, NO and NO. When growth is not done properly, it causes BIG problems for everyone (not just D2).

So, if Mr. Chmelik wants to represent ALL the people in his district, then he needs to have at least taken the time to find out what "the" people want and he has not ONCE done that!!! Oh, excuse me, he JUST announced his first town hall meeting this week - let's see who shows up, what they tell him and how he responds - remember, this is open to ALL of D2 - not just "RALE" people. What will the people of D2 tell Tony Chmelik on the 16th? What will you tell him Mr. Keough? - I don't believe I have ever met you at any hearings......

Charles_Nelson_Reilly

Is it really too much to ask for liberty minded, free market oriented, humble and honest grown ups to represent the Republican Party in Frederick County? What is with these know-it-all cast of characters and their worship of these clowns in office (formerly Blaine & now Shreve & DeLauter).

Goodness, gracious... If Chemlik only came out and rebuked these guys, opposed the MTC and promised limited gov't, he'd have 60% of the vote for County Executive if he ran.

DickD

Makes me wonder too.

FrederickTwinMom

I think Chmelik knows he has angered a lot of people he represents, he scheduled a town hall meeting according to wfmd.com :

CHMELIK TOWN MEETING July 16th 6:00-8:00pm, Urbana Library:

Residents of District Two in Frederick County are invited to a town hall meeting with Councilman Tony Chmelik. It will take place on Thursday, July 16th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the Urbana Regional Library's Natelli Community Room. It's on the ground floor across from the welcome desk.

Chmelik says in a statement that he's looking forward to meeting his constituents. "I invite residents from my district, which includes Green Valley, Monrovia, Urbana and Kemptown, to come to my town hall meeting," he says in a statement. "I want to hear their ideas and thoughts about important issues that are going on in District Two. I tremendously value the importance of communication from the people of Frederick County."

For more information, you can contact Councilman Chmelik at 301-600-1034, or by e-mail at TChmelik@FrederickCountyMD.gov.

matts853

Chmelik, Shrelauter, Smith, Blaine and their friends are neither Republican nor conservative. They are misfit opportunists manipulating their office for personal gain. It's so humorous when political homers like FK, who crave their attention with a lap-dog-esque yearning for acceptance, come running to their defense whenever people criticize them. Tony is a big boy and can and should write his own letters. I wonder if he knew FK was going to send this in? I hope he reads the comments so he can realize that FK has no political credibility outside of his dingy-sized, sinking ship of sycophantic fools that listen to him. I would not want him in my political corner. Talking politics with him is like talking taxes with my 8 year-old. I know this from experience.

And how was Bud a "victory" for RALE? We didn't even support him in the election because we had concerns with his work on the ethics committee with respect to Blaine and his myriad issues. Fortunately for all of Frederick County, Bud has thus far proven to be a worthy statesman and honest broker, something the three other "Republicans" clearly are not and never will be. Farrell seems to RALE has some magical Jedi-Knight influence over him. Bud is his own man, and I respect and appreciate him for that.

Good thing the natural born leader of hypocracy who home schooled his 11 kids lost his bid for Board of Ed. That whole thing was a joke, right? Reminds me of Blaine's bid for governor that feral was for before he was against it. It was a rocky romance.

Folks, you couldn't make this stuff up if you tried.

MCEDDE21

All of your comments today are, as usual, quite apropos. This is Farrell's first foray into the realm of written communications since his never-to-be-forgotten "abaft" letter from many months ago. Politics does, indeed, make strange bedfellows and, in the Blaine/Farrell/Chmelik case we may see that strange individuals make even stranger politics.

What really struck me about Farrell's latest memo to the masses, was not simply his unfounded personal attacks on everyone he has ever had a disagreement with, but his equating of solid community organizing and the expression of real public sentiment with "totalitarianism." He clearly doesn't understand people or politics, all the while claiming unique political insight and demeaning anyone and everyone who holds a different opinion from his own.

Nobody can make stuff up the way Farrell does. Consequently, I hope that, for the entertainment value alone, he never goes away. Now... about this new turn-of-phrase: "ballistic people." Abaft!

matts853

Good post 21. I was utterly abaft as well when I found out that I'm a "ballistic" person.

So, if I'm "ballistic" what do you think that makes feral, Blaine, Kirby, Tony, and Billy et al.? Thermonuclear???

matts853

The more I think about this column the more laughable it becomes. I just can't help but comment again.

I'm flattered that feral thought it incumbent enough for him to use a SCOTUS ruling to make a political equivalency to RALE. Thanks for the compliment feral!!! Well, we're moving on up...

And aside from chmelik (you know the guy whose job it is to represent the overwhelming majority of Monrovia residents who don't want MTC) I'm not aware of a single person who has offered a differing view point on MTC - other than the 10 or so out of county ringers planted by the out of county developers that uttered their single sentence support at the first hearing. But feral wouldn't know because he wasn't there.

des21

Wow, I didn't expect this letter to go from Totalitarianism to George Takei (he's still alive?) to Tony Chemlik. Now that's covering a lot of ground!

To say that Mr. Takei represents totalitarianism is silly. Almost as silly as his hyperbolic comments about Justice Thomas. Actors want (and need) attention Mr. Keough. Do you assume that they are intelligent? Why? Mao and Stalin were totalitarians. Mr. Takei is simply ignored which is the worst of all worlds for an actor.
You cheapen the word (like many do with the term "racist") by using it so irresponsibly.

I oppose Mr. Chmelik (for whom I voted) on this not because of an over-sized sense of my own importance (although I may have that) but because it will negatively effect my quality of life in District 2 and I think it is a gross abnegation of Mr. Chmelik's duties as a representative. You think he is showing leadership? I think he is running and hiding on this issue.

I chose not to live in Urbana Mr. Keough and I paid more not to live in a community with postage stamp yards and HOAs. If you are happy with that God Bless. I don't want it in Monrovia and neither do my neighbors. At some point the "people's" will has to be respected. Mr. Chemlik is not doing that.

There is truth in the saying "leopards don't change their spots", and this piece of untruth must have been written while the writer was looking in the mirror....So lets see; if one doesn't agree with FK then one naturally becomes totalitarian, if one chooses to fight against schools becoming trailer parks and single lane roads like Rts.80 and 75 becoming parking lots not unlike I-270, then one must be a totalitarian, if one chooses NOT to cave in to the money folks whose only interest is to line their wallets while the taxpayers pay the freight they are surely totalitarian....this is FK logic; the same logic he exhibited when he castigated time and again those who chose to fight the trash incinerator, that same incinerator that FK told us was good for us; yeah right....$3 Billion to turn 138K tons of Frederick trash into 151K tons of toxic ash that still needed to be landfilled and all the while poisoning the air and water (including the Bay) with mercury , hexavalent chromium, lead, arsenic and other toxins.....but you see he was connected to the burn industry along with marschner and the waste authority so they lied to us about who would be responsible for paying the debt associated with that boondoggle, with marschner ever lying to Blaine on his radio talk show and FK spun his untruths in various LTEs....this latest piece of trash is right up there with his prior garbage ....as Jan Gardner has stated, our housing pipeline is filled for the next 20-30 years and its time to call a halt to further development that has already exceeded the infra-structure's capabilities to cope...keough ought to go pedal his papers elsewhere!

Please give one example FK of how RALE (and that is who you are talking about, so please don't be afraid to use our name) - meaning board members like myself - have acted in an uncivil manner. Given the circus-like atmosphere in which Blaine conducted the MTC hearings, the people that spoke should be applauded for the civility they showed. Sure the hearings were heated at times, but RALE board members cannot control the emotions of the 100s of other citizens that come to the MTC hearings, just like we can't control the volcanic tempers of Kirby or the condescending attitudes of planning staff or the developer's counsel.

Speaking of hearings, how come neither you nor Tony never attended any of the 13+ hearings, past or present??? Until you find the courage to show your face in public and put some skin in the game, no one gives an "abaft" what you think.

RALE has accomplished great things. We helped unseat an authoritarian totalitarian from office - your buddy Blaine - and we continue to educate the public on the extremely flawed and illegal zoning practices of the Young BoCC and the planning staff he controlled with a hammer and sickle. We have galvanized an entire community to fight unethical business practices and hold the developers and the politicians they financially support accountable for breaking the rules. Other than write an occasional tabloid hit piece, what is that you do?

The MTC deal was corrupt from the beginning - you know it, and I know it - and RALE has done an excellent job of exposing the corruption as well as the myriad mistakes and rule violations concerning land use and zoning that occurred under Blaine's regime. We also finally have brought Tony out of hiding as we put enough pressure on him to hold a Town Hall meeting this Thursday evening (Urbana Library 6-8 PM). Will you show up?

Chmelik may appear to be considerate and certainly gave a good performance reasoning through his support of MTC, but the fact is he took developer money and ran side by side (literally with his campaign signs) with Blaine. It's no surprise that he won given the dirty money he received - I think > 80% was from developers in some form or fashion - and yes, the field was weak. You know as well as I that the worst candidate sometimes wins. I mean Ellen Bartlett almost beat Jerry Donald, a result I'm sure that upset you! Fred Ugast or Stephens Dempsey would have made a much better council member than Tony.

People are judged by the company they keep. The fact that you support Shreve and Delauter (or Shrelauter for short) speaks volumes about you. I'm sorry you're upset that Bud is his own man and doesn't goose step along with Shrelauter and Tony. Maybe you should attend a council meeting and voice your displeasure about Bud in person, instead of hiding behind the sanctuary of your keyboard.

You and Tony don't know the first thing about how bad a deal MTC is. Both of you need to crack open the books and study up, and then maybe we can have a civil discussion based on merit and not blind allegiance to your friends.

Nicki

Funny how his words "they are still ballistic people with a tunneled vision of their importance" describe those in armillary's 6:49AM comment.

DickD

Farrell , this is the "pot calling the kettle black". Why is Otis a "turncoat"? Just because his ideas and yours don't agree? That by itself makes your entire article false. Otis is a Republican, not a Blaine "lap dog". Kirby and Billy have their own problems. Kiirby will probably get reelected due to the far right majority in his district. Billy's position will be up for "grabs" next time around.

Chemelik is approved by his district and the rest of the County? Then what is the reason for your article defending him? Chemelic cares about no one, except himself. He pretend to represent his district to get elected, but has failed to represent the wishes of those that elected him. He should be gone next time around, may not even make it through the primary.

I found your entered LTE offensive and off base!

Bud Otis has made decisions that benefit the county. Just because he doesn't fit the Blaine Young mold does not make him a "turncoat". How can anyone think that urban sprawl is a good thing?

Sometimes comments are quite rude and personal but I was trying to remember when there was a letter published quite as offensive as this. As an unaffiliated voter, I am liking Mr. Otis' approach and don't much care what affiliated voters think of him. We tend to be overlooked/ignored but we are a growing voting segment of the population.

As in, "get thee abaft me Satan," or Farrell's rendition, which was more "confused."

public-redux

Tom Nichol's distinction between totalitarianism and authoritarianism is interesting. Not especially useful, however, since I wouldn't want to be under the thumb of either.

I might look up the article to see who he thinks the "old" totalitarians were since he is talking about the "new" ones. I think a great example of the "old" totalitarians is faith-based religion. Christianity, for example, seems to be about what one believes. I've been told by xians that I will burn in hell if I don't believe certain things even if my actions are praiseworthy.

I'm guessing the "new" ones are what I think of as the illiberal left. I see a lot of that in the "Atheism +" community.

They have found their ways to the law. Both, when boiled down to their component parts represent dictators (here and abroad), oligarchy governance and lords of their feifdoms, much like Frederick County is ruled and has been for decades.

Cut through all this shouting at one another and you have a DEMOCRACY, or what's left of it, locally, nationally or internationally.

FK lives in a pixalated world and amounts to a prick prick we can't even find when we get to see the bigger picture. It's been a very long time since we last pulled up the picture of corruption and can see it for what it's been allowed to be while hiding under the same rock we forded to the other side of another creek bed.

If we're not the glue that holds Frederick County together we will continue to fall prey to our emotions and not best business practices. Aren't we at that turnaround point yet?

MMFNP

Growth at any cost is a little like peace with Iran at any cost, and most of us wouldn't like that either. Then again, this is an area filled with people who are probably included in the 21+ million whose very sensitive documents were just, no make that long ago stolen because of a government so incompetent to protect its most sensitive secrets is incapable of closing the door on a breach that is probably still on going.

So why might that have happened? Bloomberg and others have already published many accurate summations with details that only make us froth even more. So anyone who thinks this country can be defended with less government and less money, especially after the weapon's details, personnel details have long left the archives. Consider these few links:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/sf/business/2015/06/22/net-of-insecurity-part-3/
A disaster foretold — and ignored is described in the link above:
“Your computers, they told the panel of senators in May 1998, are not safe — not the software, not the hardware, not the networks that link them together. The companies that build these things don’t care, the hackers continued, and they have no reason to care because failure costs them nothing. And the federal government has neither the skill nor the will to do anything about it.”
We won the war in Europe because we could build ships and planes faster than our enemies could destroy them. Today, China has more exceptionally educated people in their government and military than we have people. Have you seen this?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljbI-363A2Q
25% of China’s people with the highest IQ’s is a number larger than the population of all of North America? The link above is quite old in today’s standards, so it is no surprise to those who know and should have acted upon these details in our government and our do nothing congress. NONE of the information stolen was encrypted!

It makes you wonder why we would try to destroy public schools when we need to get our children educated as much as possible, preferably more than China.

the comments are still there scroll down to mine.

At least in this letter he seems to understand the meaning of the words and has used them correctly.

I think what he may be trying to tell us is to be nice to Chmelik? Then again I am not so sure why he thinks we care what he thinks, especially since he should probably take his own advice or submitted a different letter because he did call Bud Otis a turncoat, so maybe that wasn't the nicest thing you should be saying about Bud?

It is kinda hard to care what he says about any thing when there is hate seething from his words.

Many of us are very good at reading between the lines...but at least you did use your words correctly this time. I will give your letter a C+ for using your words correctly, you would have received an A had you not forgotten to apply Totalitarianism to the Blaine Young and the BOCC. You seemed to very confused as to whom the totalitarians were..but as long as your party was in control you just were not bothered by totalitarianism that much right?

Totalitarianism is a political system in which the state holds total control over the society and seeks to control all aspects of public and private life wherever possible.

Only Farrell could concoct and compare a national civil rights matter to a local adequate public facilities - roads, schools, ex-parte violations - zoning matter. [wink]

stevemckay

Kim - I think in Farrell's world, RALE was doing fine while we argued against MTC. When we also argued against Blaine as the person primarily responsible for the development - and all the other developments - that must be when we became "totalitarians." The real issues - roads, schools, ethics violations, circuit court remand order - none of these fit in his world view, so he ignores them. Instead, he confounds civic participation and freedom of speech with some twisted view of "totalitarianism." Last time I looked, neither I nor any of the people that I know who argue against MTC have any legal or political control over just about anything. We're just regular people making our voices heard. I don't have to pick up the dictionary to know that that has nothing to do with "totalitarianism."
