Wash. Times Gives Dwyer a Chance to Take It Back

The CRC wants to portray itself as a mainstream organization representing normal people in our county, but when they decided to go public with a "town hall" meeting they brought in a team of radical conservative homophobes to work up the crowd. Afterwards, their leaders tried to distance themselves from the extremism. But you didn't hear any apologies at the meeting, with their beyond-the-fringe crowd sitting there, no.

This morning The Washington Times gave one of their speakers a chance to take some of it back. Don Dwyer, a Maryland delegate from Anne Arundel County, was the featured speaker at the March 19th revival meetin', he spoke right before they asked people to contribute a little something. He worked up that crowd, preachin' in the old-time style, spreading the hate of the homosexual agenda and the fear of what it's going to do to our kids' morals.
A Maryland lawmaker last week defended his comments at an earlier meeting in Montgomery County in which he said he was "spreading the hate of homosexual activists."

Delegate Don Dwyer Jr. said he was alerting his audience to the hatred that homosexual activists have for those who oppose them and their agenda.

The Anne Arundel County Republican said he was not endorsing hatred for homosexuals.

Mr. Dwyer addressed about 200 people at a March 19 meeting organized by Citizens for a Responsible Curriculum, which opposes a proposed sex education curriculum in Montgomery County.

"I've been accused of spreading hate and fear among the churches throughout the state of Maryland. Guilty as charged. ... I am spreading the hate of the homosexual activist, and I am spreading my fear of what's going to happen in this great state and our great nation if the people of this world do not take a stand," he said.

Mr. Dwyer last week acknowledged his comments could be misconstrued.

"I need to be careful about that," he said. Delegate defends remarks on homosexual 'hate'


I don't think that's his problem. I was there, I heard what he said -- I heard what they all said, the only difference was his speaking style is more dynamic than the others. His problem is not in being misconstrued, he's got a problem if his words are construed at all. He said just exactly what he wanted to say, it's what he always says, and it's what the Ex-Recall group brought him in to say.

He delivered the Citizens for a Responsible Curriculum's message to their crowd in a clear, unambiguous way.

We recorded his speech. Well, Ex-Recall recorded it too, but they decided not to put it on their web site. They posted a few things, but most of their featured speakers were so far off the righthand edge of the spectrum that even those guys knew it would be bad publicity if people heard what was being said.

Listen to Dwyer HERE. You tell me how his words could possible be "misconstrued."

By the way, when the Times quoted him, there is a little dot-dot-dot in the middle. You might want to know what went there. It was simply Dwyer saying:
I am spreading hate and fear.

Today he's telling The Times that it wasn't him, it's the homosexual activist, who's spreading the hate. But last week he admitted that he himself was spreading hate and fear.
