A Refutation of Icarus

Excellent article from Political Vine:

There’s a story posted on the blog regarding John Oxendine. The author of it is “Icarus”, whose real name is Charlie Harper (no, not the TV character, a real person).

Within the story, Harper weaves a little bit of fact with a lot of conjecture and innuendo directed at innocent bystanders. In one of his paragraphs, he writes:

“Behind the scenes, some are getting nervous about the reflection on the Republican party as a whole, and it was under this guise that Matt Towery called Congressman Westmoreland last week emphatically telling him he had to drop his claims against Oxendine. Towery documented the number of politicians connected with SEUS and numerous claims were made about the issue taking the whole party down. For the good of the party, Lynn needed to stand down.“

AND, then, there’s this paragraph in which Harper decides he has the right to malign as many people as possible in his usual attempt to paint a broad brush of, well, dare I say it: “Karen-Handel-esque” verbiage (which is quite suitable since Icarus is a devout Handel supporter):

“The question remains as to why Towery allowed himself to be dragged into the middle of this. He generally is considered to be a bright man, and understands that Ox is on the verge of toxic. So why was Towery calling a Congressman who gave exactly one interview on this topic weeks ago asking him to stand down? Why was this call made with Oxendine present?

I guess if I was being asked these questions, I would add Dick Pettys’ name to a story I wrote claiming I had a bad head injury too.“

Please read this article. It really shines a light on the pro-Handel/neo-Conservative/Progressive smear machine that is trying to destroy a man of honor and statesmanship like Oxendine. I will not demand apologies from the cretins at RedState/Peach Pundit for this matter, I simply demand that people stop reading these liars and enabling their faux-Conservative policies which they're trying to force down our throats. I DO NOT want Handel OR Barnes(The radical leftist Erickson would rather see as Governor than the True Conservative candidate John Oxendine, which tells you how un-Conservative he is) as my Governor. Your thoughts.

  1. All you have to do is meet John Oxedine once to know that he is typical of every bad cliche of a slimy politician. This Conservative will vote for Barnes to keep John out of the governor's mansion! Don't want him to damage the GOP brand anymore than it already has been.
