On August 2, Isabel Hughes, a crime reporter for The Gwinnett Daily Post, penned a hit piece in which she characterized longtime citizens’ advocate, and founder of The Dustin Inman Society, D.A. King, as a “white nationalist and anti-immigration activist.” Of course, she was simply parroting the words of open-borders Duluth City Councilman Kirkland Carden, as well as the views of the now, much-disgraced Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which has laughably labeled The Dustin Inman Society as a “hate group.”
I find it interesting, and typical that Hughes never mentions the fact that The Dustin Inman Society was started by King in order to combat the flood of illegal aliens coming into Georgia (just like the one who killed 16-year old Dustin Inman in 2000). Nor does she mention that the successful businessman basically gave up his comfortable life, trading it in for lobbying, writing, and speaking to groups in an effort to make the state safer for all Georgians.
No, Hughes would rather rely on information from the discredited and biased Southern Poverty Law Center, who mindlessly deems any group or individual a “bigot” or “hate group” who simply does not subscribe to their brand of race-baiting, or who refuses to be extorted in exchange for a donation.
D.A. King has worked tirelessly, financing his efforts from his own pocket and does not owe the now-troubled SPLC, which even the left-wing Washington Post, recently said has no credibility, an apology, nor is he a bigot. Nor is anyone a bigot who simply wants our immigration laws enforced … . What “race” is illegal?
Unfortunately, Hughes has given us yet another display of “lazy journalism,” taken as fact, the words of a left-wing politician and a corrupt group who cares more about lining their pockets, than they do about actually defending wrongly accused citizens.
To Ms. Hughes: Why didn’t you offer D.A. King the chance to tell his side of the story, before penning such an attack?
Because you were not interested in both sides, nor certainly in the carnage caused by illegal aliens in your state. And, by the way, the terms “racist,” “bigot,” and “white nationalist” have been so overused, they no longer have any meaning.
In all fairness, this writer spoke to Ms. Hughes, who promised a forthcoming follow-up piece, in which King will be given a chance to speak.
Not D.A King, nor anyone on this side of the movement (law and order) is against “immigration,” that is, legal immigration. As an illegal alien’s first act in this country is, in fact, a crime, often to be followed by many more.
Perhaps Ms. Hughes could do an interview with what remains of that 16-year-old boy’s family, maybe you can catch Kathy (Dustin’s mom) during one of her many hospital or therapy visits, as she has been confined to a wheelchair and left in deteriorating health since Gonzalo Harrel-Gonzalez slammed into their vehicle, 19 years ago.
