Jon Henke Crusades Against the ‘Fevered Swamp’ Mentality
Jon Henke feels that much of what is reported in the WorldNetDaily is just hideously embarrassing to the Right and is calling on Conservatives with a brain to reject this mentality, which he calls the ‘fevered swamps.’
Jon Henke of The Next Right takes up this crusade and challenges Republicans to veer away from the cyber-tabloid and its fringe lunacy thinking. Henke calls on Conservatives with a brain to reject this mentality.
An example from WND of what Henke feels is extremely embarrassing can be found at The Next Right:
[T]he Web site Worldnetdaily.com says that the government is considering Nazi-like concentration camps for dissidents. Jerome Corsi, the author of “The Obama Nation,” an anti-Obama book, says that a proposal in Congress “appears designed to create the type of detention center that those concerned about use of the military in domestic affairs fear could be used as concentration camps for political dissidents, such as occurred in Nazi Germany
Jon Henke has some impressive credentials. According to Lowell over at Blue Virginia:
Jon Henke was George Allen’s netroots coordinator, New Media Director for the Republican Communications Office in the U.S. Senate, Online Brand Manager for Fred Thompson’s presidential campaign, and is co-founder of The Next Right.
I welcome Henke’s attempts to bring normalcy back to the Republican Party. Right now, all I can do is laugh. There are many people out there who, like me, aren’t really comfortable with the Democrats but who can’t stop laughing at the fringe lunatics.
It is time for all Republicans and Democrats to engage in honest debate of issues and leave behind conspiracy theories and other wing nut theories if either party is to have any credibility with people of reason.
