Texas School Board Creationist Goes Wacko

... which should not be a huge surprise. Here are a few quotes from the recently published ... then hastily removed ... column of Cynthia Dunbar, who is a member of the Texas State Board of Education. Yes, she's one of the creationists:

Can we truly even imagine an America under an Obama Administration? I sincerely believe that an Obama Administration would ultimately mean one thing...the end of America as we know her.... [some babbling about Obama not really being a citizen] ...

I perceive it [terrorist attack on U.S. soil in first six months of Obama Presidency] will be a planned effort by those with whom Obama truly sympathizes to take down the America that is threat to tyranny. What nobody seems to be discussing is the fact that if such an attack takes place, what about Martial Law? What happens to expand executive power when a state of civil disorder is declared?

The column was originally posted on the Christian Worldview Network but was quickly pulled once the publishers realized how OTT Mz Dunbar, or as we call her The Wacko, really is. Fortunately, the column was preserved here, on the blog Just Orb. Thank you Orb.

We didn't have to wait long for right wing brains to explode into loopy, tangled strands of conspiracy theory nonsense. Creationist brains, already in a state of disarray, are already predisposed to this kind of inanity, so don't be too shocked at what Cynthia Dunbar, creationist, Christian, and…
I'm honestly undecided about Elena Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court. She's got a distinguished record of legal service and scholarship, though few publications to document her views. Larry Lessig likes her, Glenn Greenwald doesn't. At the end of the day, President Obama likes her, and the…
Sally Wall, a teacher, insists that the TEKS are about laying a foundation for future study, and the S&W language is distracting from that. "My job is not to fight cultural wars." Tell that to Chairman McLeroy, who urges "Enlisting in the culture war." No questions. Randy Linder then insists…
Cynthia Dunbar has written a book. It's typical wingnut nonsense: it "refers to public education as 'a subtly deceptive tool of perversion' and calls the establishment of public schools unconstitutional and 'tyrannical.'" It goes further and says that… …she believes public schools are…

I've been reading her blog since the beginning almost (namely because she was married to my BIL). She has a great blog, very eclectic!!!!

Thanks for mentioning her, I'm sure she will come over and say Hi!

I'm always amused that righties get upset when their comments get publicized. You would think they would be happy about it.

Wow I didn't know Obama isn't a citizen. Very clever of him to become the president of a country he doesn't even like! Veeerryyy sneeaaakyyyy.

"Texas School Board Creationist Goes Wacko"
"goes" wacko? Isn't wacko their baseline state?

Cynthia Dunbar, Esq., it turns out, is a graduate of that wonderful 4th tier Regent University School of Law, the Pat Robertson school that gave us Monica Goodling and all those other wonderful legal minds scattered throughout the Bush Administration.

Why am I not surprised?
