Macon City Councilman and Internet blogger Erick Erickson has been listed as one of the 100 most influential conservatives in America (69 to be precise). He is also the editor-in-chief of the site redstate.com. Erickson is unapologetic for his postings on the retirement of Supreme Court Justice David Souter, where he called the jurist a child molester and bestiality deviate.
Erickson’s post proclaimed: “The nation loses the only goat —-ing child molester to ever serve on the Supreme Court in David Souter’s retirement. . . .Lefties really get offended when you point out what David Souter does in his spare time with goats and kids.” I can only wonder why “lefties” would be offended.
Erickson, Republican, represents north Macon, later said that he does not actually know of child molesting or goat loving in his history but “It wouldn’t surprise me … ’cause he’s creepy.” What he says he does know for a fact is that this is “a guy that hates America.”
Erickson and redstate.com were profiled in Newsweek magazine in November and named the 69th most influential conservative in America last year by the Daily Telegraph in London.
