During Tuesday night’s selectmen meeting in Canton the McAlberts and their supporters showed up in full force to urge people to vote NO on the audit of the Police Department and Board of Selectmen at the November 20 Special Town Meeting. Audits are routine in most businesses, and if things are fine and dandy in Canton then everyone should want the audit because it will show just how wonderful they are. But the McAlberts and company don’t want an audit because they likely know that it will reveal widespread problems with the police and local government, particularly their involvement in the coverup of John O’Keefe’s murder, and the suppression of First Amendment rights of citizens after the fact.
One of the women who spoke on behalf of the establishment was this flannel clad woman:
Karen Kelly started her speech by announcing that she lives on Randolph Street, claiming that she wasn’t prepared, and then whipping out a prepared speech on her cell phone that she read out loud to the class. Gal Borland claimed to have started a Facebook group meant to bring people together in Canton, but then proceeded to rip apart anyone who had the audacity to believe that an audit would be a good thing for the town.
I’ve never seen bullies pull off the “I’m a victim” act less effectively than these people. That entire speech could be summed up by saying, “anyone who points out the glaring issues with the way that John O’Keefe’s murder was handled and covered up is a bad person who has to shut up.”
Karen claimed that concerned citizens like Rita Lombardi are trying to “transform our town to create a new form of governance,” simply because they want accountability. Except there’s just one problem when she says “our town” – Rita lives in Canton, but Karen Kelly does not. Karen USED to live in Canton, but the problem with living in Canton is they expect you to pay your rent there, which Karen didn’t like to do.
Karen Kelly is somewhat of a common name, and it seems that someone with that same name also had a $15K judgement against them by AT&T in Brockton District Court around the time of her eviction.
She now reportedly ives in Holbrook, which goes to Quincy District Court. It’s unclear if this is the same Karen Kelly, but if it’s not then it’s a pretty common name for criminals and deadbeats.
So I guess it makes sense why she supports Chris Albert so much. They both feel like they shouldn’t have to pay their bills.
Karen told the crowd that people like Rita were “using the cover of a murder trial to advance their political agenda.” But I know that Rita and I did not vote for the same person for President in 2020, yet we’re on the same side of the Karen Read issue because we all agree that covering up murders is a bad thing.
What you’re seeing from these people is something called “DARVO” – Deny, Attack, and Reverse Victim and Offender. It is a reaction perpetrators of wrong doing display in response to being held accountable for their behavior.
“The perpetrator or offender may Deny the behavior, Attack the individual doing the confronting, and Reverse the roles of Victim and Offender such that the perpetrator assumes the victim role and turns the true victim — or the whistle blower — into an alleged offender. This occurs, for instance, when an actually guilty perpetrator assumes the role of “falsely accused” and attacks the accuser’s credibility and blames the accuser of being the perpetrator of a false accusation.”
In other words, they’re narcissists. They know what the McAlberts have done, and they know it’s blatantly obvious to anyone looking into it. But their only way out of it is by reversing the roles and turning concerned, law abiding citizens into the bad guys. It’s gaslighting 101. These people are the definition of uncivil, yet they claim to be the ones wanting civility. They claim to be standing up to bullies, yet that is the only role they’ve ever known how to play. They claim to be the victims of false rumors and threats, yet they’ve been attacking their victims in this manner for years.
This is why we need every citizen of Canton to be at Canton High School on November 20 for the Special Town Meeting. Vote YES on the audit, and bring as many friends and family members with you as you can.
