I'm going to post more follow up on the WorldNetDaily issue - including the response I've gotten from the RNC - but first a round-up of the responses we've gotten from WND and their charming readers.
- He says my call for right-of-center organizations to stop supporting WND's conspiracy peddling is "bullying tactics".
- He says he has never heard of me.
- He says that WND didn't say they were "concentration camps"; they just said that the legislation "appears designed to create the type of detention center" that people "fear" could be used as "concentration camps for political dissidents, such as occurred in Nazi Germany." He calls this "nuanced".
- He claims I have called "for an all-out jihad against WND."
- He says, "Am I scared? No, folks. I'm not." and says he's just standing up for "truth".
In The Washington Times, Farah "questioned Mr. Henke's motives and standing", arguing that The Next Right is "pretty much a Republican establishment group who has worked for the RNC and the Republican Party and I can certainly understand why a group like that would have problems with World Net Daily." He added "these are not journalists, they are political activists who have their own agendas."
So, he's taking the "you can't handle the truth!" approach so beloved by true believers and conspiracy theorists. He also seems to think I'm part of the "Republican establishment" and aligned with the RNC. This is an interesting argument, considering the fact that I'm trying to get the RNC to stop working with Joseph Farah.
Some WorldNetDaily readers also wrote to offer feedback.
Dave says I'm a Commie Leftist or RINO and he does't read this blog.
"Tell me son are you a Commie Leftist incognito or just a RINO being stupid? I've read WND for years, which is more than I can say for your blog. I can't wait to read your blog after BO gets his army of maggots after you one day."
Randy Curtis says Birchers and Birthers were right and I've drunk the Kool-Aid
Actually you are embarrassing to the right but you wouldn't know the right from Adam's off ox. History is showing that the Bircher's were right and while the "Birthers" may not be correct in their accusations they are right in demanding that Obama show what he has in order to prove what he says. Instead he spends thousands to stop people from questioning him. This is not a problem for you? These questions could end tomorrow and we could look ar his Socialist agenda if he would put up. Have another sip of Kool-aid and go to sleep since you disregard the founding documents and their principles. If you belong to the right then you should appreciate WND.
Carmen Valdes says I must be enjoying the traffic from WND (actually, WND doesn't really send much traffic) and I'm a communist:
you must be basking in the sun with all the free publicity you must be getting from Farah's editorial in WND directing traffic to your unknown little hole. since you are in the same bed as media matters and the huffinton post no serious normal thinking conservative would be associated with the likes of you. why don't you direct your efforts to exposing obama's administration being run by communists and terrorists? what am i thinking? you are one of them
Jeffery says I am an "enemy of American", he's going to troll the web attacking me and our CAPTCHA sucks:
YOU sir are an enemy of America in the WORSE FORM! www.wnd.com is one of the FEW REAL INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALIST LEFT!! So I will be posting and suggesting a boycott of YOUR MOVEMENT all over the net today and the rest of the week, then month and maybe even year unless I see a retraction of some type from wnd.com. Have a good day. By the way your "captcha" makes no sense, the first word is no "word" at all.
Gunnery Sgt D.C. Robertson threatened me with violence and wrote a lot of things that I'm going to redact.
Jon,I hope you get a triple case of AIDS the next time you take it up the a**, you f*****g homo. You and your putrid ilk put that Comie n****r in the White House and accidently woke up the silent majority of white, Christain, tax-paying Americans. No longer will the soul of this great nation be intimidated by political correctness. You f****d up buddy and now you have a front row seat to see the newly awakened vanquish the cancer of fascism from this land. Oh, by the by, I do hope to meet you in person some day for a bit of attitude adjustment.Semper Fi, Motherf****r.
Plungeon offered his thoughts in ALL CAPS. That's way more convincing than those sentence case arguments.
SHOULD WE FOLLOW OUR CONSTITUTION OR NOT? DO THE TERM "NATURAL BORN" MEAN NUTTIN' TO YOU ALL?! AHH....THE 14TH AMENDMENT: IS YOUR POSITION THAT WHEN AN ILLEGAL ALIEN DROPS A NEWBORN BABY ON OUR SOIL THAT THE BABY IS A U.S. CITIZEN? IF SO, TRY REREADING OUR CONSTITUTION CORRECTLY!!!!!!!!!
J.T. Wheeler thinks I was put up to this in order to help somebody stage a "coup".
You smell like a liberal. It sounds like someone put you up to a hit piece on WND, to help commence a staged "right-wing" coup.
I wear the criticisms of Joseph Farah and his WorldNetDaily supporters like a badge of honor.
