Herr Doktor Auf Der Kinder

October 23, 2012

From The Evil Dr. Guarino at The Greensboro Guardian:

I am told that the system’s IB program has required reading that includes a book called “A Handmaid’s Tale.” This book has numerous sexual references and graphic passages. It repeatedly depicts promiscuity and multiple partner sexuality. It contains cultural messages regarding sexuality and relationships that are potentially harmful to adolescents during their formative years.

The book also glorifies drug use and dwells on suicide. There is considerable profanity found throughout the book– which also contains unfavorable depictions of Christianity.

From Wikipedia:

Set in the near future, in a totalitarian Christian theocracy which has overthrown the United States government, The Handmaid’s Tale explores themes of women in subjugation and the various means by which they gain agency.

Methinks The Evil Doctor is being disingenuous. But having complained of an offense, he’s off to bigger things.

The Guilford County Schools system has been ruled by liberals since its inception. Democratic gerrymandering gave the school board precisely the same district lines the Board of County Commissioners has had. This means that the school board has been dominated by individuals who harbor a liberal Democratic perspective.

Cultural relativism, secular liberalism, and sexual liberationism will therefore animate the philosophy that key players bring to the system.

And thank God for it. Of course, Guarino goes too far.

Consider, for instance, the fact that the school board chairman– a practicing attorney– recently helped represent former Senator John Edwards with his legal troubles. It is somehow a bit unseemly that the person guiding the ship at the school system was involved representing such a sordid case. But that is what we have in GuilfordCounty.

Heaven forbid The Evil Doctor Guarino should choose to practice his dark art on someone who has sinned. As to the person in question, despite spending countless hours caring for the Guilford County Schools instead of practicing law, he has managed to become “president elect of the NC Bar Association and should not be maligned like this,” as an email stated.

It seems especially evil to me that Guarino would disparage a person who has accepted a great responsibility, fraught with the very worst disputes among parents concerning their children, to serve all the community, when The Doctor expends so much energy trying to bring it down on behalf of hateful Christofascists.

They’re putting up a lot of crap at The Greensboro Guardian and I have no desire to rebut all of it, primarily because it causes me to repeat myself, which I do not enjoy, and I therefore assume neither do you. However, this latest post from Guarino is especially vile.

Also, I’m reluctant to address these evil posts if it causes someone else not to do the same. I am convinced others could do this much better than me and would like to read their takes on Guarino’s venom. I remain committed to the cause, but the water is warm and inviting.

    I tried to leave a comment over there. It’s not showing up; can’t tell whether it got eaten or simply went into moderation. I don’t give a rat’s ass what he thinks about The Handmaid’s Tale, but that crap about Alan Duncan was beyond the pale. And I told him so. Or tried to, anyway.

    I tried to leave a comment here with a link to an old column about a previous attempt at much the same thing. Had a link, maybe trapped in moderation?

      Nothing in moderation. Please try again.

    I read The Handmaid’s Tale while in undergrad at UNC-Chapel Hill – the same school that Guarino’s sons attend (BOOM). I, for one, am surprised and quite pleased that some GCS students are reading such a quality work of modern literature. My guess is that Guarino would prefer high school juniors and seniors be required to read extremely difficult and complexly written “classics” like Stevenson’s ‘Treasure Island’ and Kipling’s ‘Captain’s Courageous’ – you know, books about vulnerable young men getting along with and living in cramped quarters on the high seas with grown, brutish old salts – Guarinoian romances, if you will.

    Trolling Guarino has become extremely difficult now that he’s abandoned his blog and relocated to Davenport’s lair. I’ve never once pondered commenting over there and never will. We can only hope one of those rascals writes something so outrageous that it grabs the attention of the mainstream media. Then, the world will learn of their hate and lunacy.

      Fred Smith was from Johnston County. I knew his type well and made much fun of him and his 100 County BBQ Tour. McCrory still owes me for that one.
