LETTER: Gorak, a coalition of one

  • 0

This letter has two purposes. Some newspapers may publish it. Others may find it useful as background about a man from whom they receive letters.

Dave Gorak is a right wing propagandist originally from Chicago, but now from tiny La Valle. His past letters have primarily been anti-immigrant, racist rants, but recently he has turned to attacks on President Joe Biden. One of his latest letters claims - without evidence - that Biden is “in cognitive decline.” A few sentences later, he says he voted for Donald Trump, and will again. He says nothing about Trump’s mental and emotional issues.

The Chicago Tribune in a Jan. 13, 2004, article by Eric Zorn exposed Gorak and his “Midwest Coalition to Reduce Immigration.” The article was entitled, “Immigration policy critic a force of one.” It described Gorak as “the coalition’s director and only employee,” and its headquarters as “a tiny converted bedroom of the first floor of a 1 ½ -story home on a quiet street in suburban Lombard.”

Newspapers with right-wing editorial page editors, such as the Wisconsin State Journal’s Scott Milfred, have been particularly gullible to Gorak’s rants. The Journal’s editorial page editor is also its conservative debater.
