From Tim Dunkin at the Greensboro Guardian:
[T]he Right – Republicans, conservatives, libertarians, liberty-minded individuals of all stripes – just can’t seem to get it together. They can’t seem to find the traction needed to actually start making a difference in our public policies, even when receiving majorities. While at the state level, liberty lovers have managed to make a lot of positive changes, at the national level it seems that the Right is just thrashing around in a rut, unable to get the grip needed to start getting things done. We’ve held the Congress for two years with a whole slate of fresh-faced Tea Party outsiders who promised to “shake up” the system and start rolling back the fiscal irresponsibility we’ve seen for too long in this country. Yet, it hasn’t happened. This Congress has seen its budgets and its shortfalls increase as much as those previous. The Republican slate of candidates is likewise hopeless – filled either with RINOs of various sorts or with conservative candidates who nevertheless seem determined to shoot themselves in the foot every time they turn around. Our leaders are completely dropping the ball when it comes to actually making the case for our ideology and policies. It almost seems like no liberty-oriented candidate or elected official out there has either the knowledge or the courage to speak out loudly against the lies of the Left and to clearly articulate the merits and rightness of our cause. The Right in America – a giant filled with so much potential ability to roll back government excess and to restore liberty – is not living up to its potential in any way, shape, or form.
As you might expect, his solution is to return to the spirit of Reagan. It’s a pretty good article exposing the hypocrisy of conservatives. The article first appeared in December at Renew America. The byline indicates that Dunkin lives in Orange County. I suppose Davenport‘s need for content requires such decisions, but I’d hoped such an online effort might be limited to articles from people in Guilford County or even Greensboro. I don’t know if Art Pope‘s stooge, Sam Hieb, is available, but I’d much rather mock someone like him than a stranger. Dunkin also appears to write about national issues. I should think we’ve more than enough of that. I fully expected the Greensboro Guardian to focus on local issues, but am clearly mistaken. Sure, there are locals providing content, but also several whom I have never heard of.
Back to Dunkin, since this article he has embroiled himself in a controversial defense of Hephzibah House and immediately took a shellacking in the comments. Here’s a site telling the story of the Hephzibah girls. Here’s a blog post taking exception to Dunkin’s article. A reasonable person could take a quick look at these sites and reach the conclusion that Dunkin has really stepped in it.
So, Davenport, in his first effort with the Greensboro Guardian, rather than focusing on local issues as the site indicates, has gone out of his way to feature a religious fundamentalist who has apologized for a pastor who very well may be guilty of having abused helpless women under his care for decades. Given this circumstance, I sincerely question the ability of Davenport to operate his new website without further unfortunate missteps.
And now, thanks to Ernie McCracken in the comments, we know that Dunkin hates gays:
Some effort has been made by the homosexual lobby to find a “natural” basis for
their perversion. There has been the often remarked-but-never-seen “gay gene” hypothesis which continues to be floated in public discourse, despite having zero scientific backing whatsoever. Attempts have been made to find physiological
difference between homosexuals and heterosexuals, but once these were peer-reviewed by actual science, no differences could be maintained. So, the default position is to simply argue that because society is “evolving” (perhaps “degrading” would be a more accurate term), we need to evolve with it and recognize that homosexuals should have a right to marry each other.
The gays have a lobby? Exactly how does that work?
And as I stated in another post, homosexuals have a right to marry because they wish to sanctify their love for each other with God’s blessing, just like the rest of us.
Homosexual marriage is not a natural right. It cannot be, first of all, for the simple fact that it is not natural. It is “common sense” that men and women would engage in sexual relationships with each other. The regulation of these relationships within the bonds of marriage is established by the revelation of Scripture, and is affirmed by the reasonableness of the natural order. When the passions of mankind are constrained within an institution that directs these passions into positive, constructive ends – building a home, raising and providing for a family, training up the next generation – and away from negative, destructive ends – wildcatting around, no financial or emotional stability, disorder caused by sexual competition and jealousy – then stable social systems can be maintained, along with all the good things like education, prosperity, technology, and the rest that come about as a result of social stability.
Dunkin is full of shit. Despite his evil dalliance with scientific excuses, homosexuals were created by God and are therefore natural. I’m not sure, but I think Dunkin has ascribed all kinds of bad behavior to homosexuals. This is as pure an example of bigotry as I’ve seen. The terrible slurs continue in the article, but I’ve seen enough. Tim Dunkin is manifestly evil.
