Standing Up to the Lesbian Gay Bullies and Totalitarians Motivates Congressional Run

Hunter Baker is a university professor running a longshot campaign for the open congressional seat in the 8th District of Tennessee. He is very clear-eyed about his challenges. In explaining why he chose to run, a lot of it has to do with the gay left’s bullying, anti-American behavior. He cites the hate campaigns against Brendan Eich, Atlanta Fie Chief Kelvin Cochran, Christian florists and bakers, and the left’s all-out-war on Religious Freedom in general as his motivation.

When Dan Cathy of Chick-fil-A affirmed traditional marriage, a media storm followed. Mayors of Boston and Chicago said the company shouldn’t be allowed to do business in their cities. But instead of leaving Chick-fil-A vulnerable, millions of people rallied to its support. A huge show of solidarity and the company’s simple dignity changed the story.

Houston Mayor Annise Parker tried to silence pastors in the city by issuing subpoenas demanding they turn over their sermons so they could be examined for any mention of a controversial local equal rights ordinance. The response was overwhelming against such a move. Parker backed down.

These two examples show we can stand up to those who demand conformity to the corporate/DC/Hollywood party line. We deserve to have rights of faith and conscience protected. But every time a Republican office holder runs scared, the task becomes that much harder. We need people in office who are able to offer a simple, reasoned defense of religious liberty.

I wish him well. Without him and people like him, the future is going to look like a pair of Birkenstocks tramping on a human face forever.

  1. That should not be his only motivation. There are plenty more:

    1) To make government as small as possible with the idea that this will increase liberty.
    2) To get government out of the way of economic growth by keeping it to the simple duty of keeping the market open and competitive.
    3) To actually represent the people, rather than the party.

  2. This is another reason why conservatives and libertarians are FED UP with the DC Establishment and are resorting to in-your-face tactics that have long been the Left’s playbook.

    I always say fight fire with fire. And return fire as often as necessary. Period.

    Does that include getting Trump the Republican nomination? If so, great work.

    Personally, I prefer SCORCHED EARTH and return fire MORE than necessary. In other words, nuke the site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

    No, but since you brought it up, Cinesnatch, I suggest you read V’s story about the Bernie Sanders terrorists at the Shrillary speech and then get back to me once you’ve digested it.

    Checkmate.
