An Alabama author who's spoken to white supremacists who believe slavery is ordained by God [was] scheduled to headline a Wausau tea party rally next week.John Eidsmoe has spoken to white supremacists [sic]. What if he told them they were a bunch of apostate xenophobes and that they must repent. It's not often (as in: never) this blog quotes approvingly (in pertinent part) from FreeRepublic.com, but here goes:*
Jefferson County Circuit Court Judge Randy Koschnick complained to the rally's organizer ...

I have heard John Eidsmoe speak, and he is no racist. If you look at his biography, you cannot find anything in his life that would indicate that he is a racist. Read it for yourselves, and you decide. Obama was a member of a racist congregation for twenty years, but the MSM told us that he was not a racist simply because he was a member of a racist congregation. Eidsmoe is on a speakers circuit. He speaks at all sorts of meetings. This is a horrible slight against a good man.And he's a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel and a professor of law, among other accomplishments (including a fifth degree black belt: step quickly, Grill Daddy!).
Eidsmoe offered to withdraw from the rally.Sounds like a gentleman too.
Eidsmoe may espouse a few wacky Biblical interpretations of his own, but nobody seems to have shown him to be any kind of a racist yet.
So has potential Supreme Court candidate Randy Koschnick tragically misfired his political blunderbuss, and helped propagate unwarranted negative aspersions against this man's character and reputation?
Or else does Koschnick know something about Col. John Eidsmoe that the rest of the world doesn't know. In the meantime what he should know is that you can't believe everything you read in the papers.
Koschnick didn't mind sitting down with Joe the Plumber who, while not a racist, is just a goof, which in many respects is much worse.
