Several elections ago, Guilford County Commissioner candidate, Tony Wilkins, and I had a little dust up at a polling place. I filmed some of it, and recently posted it again out of pure meanness on my part. It doesn’t make Tony look particularly bad, but does showcase my terrible video skills.
The fact is that since then I’ve come to respect Tony and the good work he has done on behalf of the Guilford County GOP, especially in their struggle to fend off the Tea Party idiots of C4GC, who have attempted to take over the organization, much like Nathan Tabor did with the Forsyth County GOP. C4GC is made up of a bunch of fundamentalist Christians and led by Jeff Hyde and Jodi Riddleberger. They count among their number a convicted ephebophile and the owner of several Latino strip clubs. In short, they are racist, bigoted, hypocritical dumbasses who desire only to be seen before the cameras. They are constantly putting on events to achieve their need for attention.
As the campaign season got going, a certain Jeremy Williams threw his hat in the ring and received the endorsement of the sociopaths at C4GC. Fine. I’d never heard of the guy and was prepared to let him go his merry way until this comment showed up on my post of the Wilkins video:
So a liberal is saying that Tony Wilkins a “Republican” is a good guy? I have a feeling Tony Wilkins leans toward Liberal Progressive!
Here’s my reply:
I’ve been a member of the GOP since 1978 and never voted otherwise. Furthermore, I’m doing all I can to take the GOP back from Tea Party fuck ups like you.
I hereby urge those living in District 6 to vote for Tony Wilkins for Guilford County Commissioner. Jeremy Williams represents the worst kind of people getting into politics: those who have spent no time in the county GOP organization, but seek to subvert the will of the people with the will of God. Additionally, being ignorant of the political process in Guilford County, they are reckless zealots who promise tax cuts and less spending without being aware of the complicated process of local governance.
OTOH, Tony has spent years involved in this arena, knows the issues and the constituents. Rather than acting on a frustrated desire to make a difference, Wilkins is a committed public servant with a long history of community involvement.
Williams is a cagy one, soft-pedaling the biblical worldview, but I’m sure when you get right down to it, he’s just as right wing authoritarian as any other evil pseudo-conservative. Hooking up with these cracked pots shows he has a tin ear for politics. He probably takes that Revolutionary reenactment bullshit too literally.
I wonder where he comes down on the marriage amendment. Speaking of which, how’d you like a life sentence playing catch and cleaning up after that big sack of shit?
He’s a human resource professional. How exciting. This guy’s wound too tight not to have some dirt on him. If so, he’s running with the right crowd. As Greensboro’s only transvestite Hooter’s waitress and adult entertainer, I’ll have to keep an eye out for him. He’ll be hard to miss.
I just got off the phone with one of the actresses about the Diddler Candy scene we’re shooting tonight at Riddleberger’s lair. She said the reason I haven’t seen Big Jer at the strip clubs is because he has a thing for Josephine G. Just as well. I’ve got my hands full with Billy Yow.
