Would somebody please tell County Councilman Norman Dorn to shut up?
Column by the Editor
posted February 6, 2008
COLUMN – If I were a resident of the
Northside County Council District I believe, no I know, I would move so
that thinking people would not relate me to having the most ignorant,
uneducated, and asinine county councilman that ever held a seat on the
county council. Granted, Merriwether’s former councilman Danny Bishop
always gave Norman Dorn a run for his money for that dubious
distinction, but at least Merriwether voted Bishop out only to have Fox
Creek Charter High School embrace him. Make what you will
However, every single month the meetings of the county council are
always prolonged by Mr. Dorn rambling on about some personal problem he
has be it being found guilty in a Magistrate Court case or being
notified by the Town of Edgefield that his property is in need of being
cleaned up or face fines.
Mr. Dorn does not want answers; he just wants to ramble on with
unintelligible conversation that leaves the entire audience and council
members shaking their heads trying to figure out what the heck he is
To top it off, Mr. Dorn is a former educator. That speaks volumes about
the educational standards in Edgefield County. Mr. Dorn could not
string a cognitive thought together in proper English if his life
depended on it. Sometimes I wish it did.
This idiot is an embarrassment to Edgefield County and especially to
those living in the Northside District he represents.
Norman Dorn will grandstand for those he invites to the meetings from
the black community with the most ridiculous, ignorant, and asinine
comments. He berates other council members, the Chairman, the county
attorney, and any white constituent from his district that challenges
his views. When others try to offer answers to the few intelligible
questions he asks he says he does not need to hear from them because “I
have the floor”.
Almost all of his rants have absolutely nothing to do with county
business and has no business being allowed in the meetings to waste the
time of taxpayers who attend the county council meetings to become
informed. In fact, anyone who listens to this moron for more than five
seconds lowers his or her IQ by 40 points. Simply having an IQ of 40
points would be an improvement for Mr. Dorn.
I blame Chairman Kneece for a large portion of this ongoing idiocy
because he allows the “Norman Dorn Show” to continue each month.
Chairman Kneece is responsible for conducting the county council
meetings in an orderly fashion and when Norman Dorn wants to show is
arse the chairman should gavel him down. If Dorn refuses to yield, have
his ignorant butt put out of the meeting. I am sure that Chairman
Kneece would receive a half-hour standing ovation if he did so by those
attending the meetings.
Of course with the budget meetings beginning next month Mr. Dorn will
begin his annual ritual of inviting every member of black churches in
his district to attend the first two readings of the county budget
where he will rant for half an hour telling “his people” how the money
the council is spending is not the council’s money it is “the people’s
money,” drawing the annual “amen’s” by the packed house, and then
voting against passing the budget.
Of course he fails to invite the same people to the only vote that
counts, the third reading, (I wonder if his followers even know there
are three readings) where he votes to pass the budget he so ardently
opposes in the first two votes.
It is a shame that the Northside District has had intelligent
challengers to Mr. Dorn’s seat, both black and white, that are defeated
by the ignorant followers of the brainless Norman Dorn. And then Mr.
Dorn has to question why his district falls so far behind the rest of
Well, the answer is simple, stupid is as stupid does.
Until the Northside District takes a hint from the Merriwether
District, who ran off their village idiot only to flourish, don’t
expect anything more than what you have.
The Northside District would see a vast improvement in representation
if they elected a retarded three-headed frog over Norman Dorn. Face
facts, removing Dorn would increase the average IQ of the entire County
Council by at least 60 points.
