Yelp! Yanked Yelp About Huntington Park City Attorney

It is not enough for us to tell people how much we dislike their choices and their behavior.

Those individuals have to receive consequences if they continue to do what we do not want them to do.

The Huntington Park City Attorney, Arnold Alvarez-Glasman, refused to answer my questions about the status of the live scan for the two illegal aliens appointed to city commissions.

I asked him about the matter just before the city council went into closed session, and he refused to say anything.

I then sent a series of questions to his law firm.

That's right - the city attorney has been contracted through his private law firm, and his clients and businesses elsewhere.

I decided to write a negative review of his law firm on Yelp!

No one should give the city attorney any business, especially if he is aiding and abetting the appointment of two illegal aliens to civil service positions, while ignoring the thousands of legal residents who live in the city and could  just as well serve the public.

A good friend of mine, David, found out what I wanted to, and posted a Facebook Event for anyone who wanted to post negative reviews of the city attorney.

Removed Content:

I would not give this man -- Arnold Alvarez-Glasman -- any business. He is presiding as the current council for the city of Huntington Park, where they have appointed two illegal aliens.

He has not enforced the city council to respect the Brown Act, and there have been numerous violations against citizens who speak to the city council.

He admitted during the last city council meeting that he did not whether the two illegal aliens' livescan was in process or not.

He is not competent, and he is not giving good legal advice. Do not give this law firm your business!

I had read over the guidelines for Yelp!, and I did not finding anything which particularly required a direct contact and service with the business in order to qualify.

Regardless of whether the site pulled my comments or not, other people took the time to make comments protesting this city attorney's connection with the bogus appointments.

Furthermore, someone must have noticed to report the comment and then have it taken down.

Whatever actions and goals people want to accomplish, conservatives must make sure to keep up the pressure, make sure that they know what we are doing, and that we refuse to be quiet.

Sometimes, the best pressure to change behavior attacks the individual pocketbooks and profits. Conservatives should not hesitate to use boycotts.
