Appointment of the person to the Ceres city council canceled; he condemns “abolish culture”

The remarks he made on his podcast cost the Ceres man an appointment to the city council.

The exposure of John Osgood’s racist and derogatory statements drew opposition from community members, and on Monday the council reversed its decision two weeks ago to appoint him to its vacant seat, according to the Ceres Courier.

Osgood frequently used offensive and derogatory terms on his Forgotten Liberty Radio podcast, including repeatedly using the N-word in one episode. Both the Courier and Modesto Bee spoke out against his appointment.

An editorial from The Bee called Osgood a “vulgar, evil extremist” and said it was a mystery why he was appointed, given that he frequently attended city council meetings and ridiculed and humiliated their members.

Osgood responded to the decision on Monday with a statement that, inter alia, said: “The decision by the Ceres City Council to cancel my appointment to the council represents the worst hysteria of the abolition culture today and is based on an inaccurate and libelous portrayal of my character.”

Osgood was one of three applicants for the vacancy following the unexpected resignation last month of Cooper Condit, the 25-year-old grandson of former Congressman Gary Condit. Originally on November 9, the council voted 2-2 for Osgood’s appointment, but Mayor Javier Lopez changed his vote to no, saying he wanted to avoid a by-election for the post. Osgood was due to be sworn in on Monday.

The council has scheduled a special meeting for December 6 to discuss filling the vacancy.

Ceres is a city of about 50,000 on the outskirts of Modesto.
