Major Jonathan C. Dowty, the Christian Fighter Pilot, Sinks to an All-Time Low
Since starting his “ministry” in 2006, Maj. Dowty has written an astounding number of posts about Mikey and MRFF, and the frequency of these posts has been escalating in the past few years. A staggering 432 of the posts on Maj. Dowty’s blog are tagged “Mikey Weinstein” and/or “MRFF.” In the past year alone, he has written 172 posts tagged with Mikey’s name. And these aren’t short posts. Many are in excess of a thousand words with numerous links (usually to his own previous posts), and obviously take him considerable time to write. Many of these posts attack Mikey personally; others are about things that MRFF has done; and some are about things that really have nothing to do with Mikey or MRFF, but Maj. Dowty finds ways to somehow work Mikey into them anyway. But, even given his disturbing obsession with all things Mikey Weinstein, I really didn’t think even the disturbingly obsessed Maj. Dowty would sink as low as he did last week.
As I posted two weeks ago, former Navy SEAL Glen Doherty, one of the four Americans killed in the attack in Libya, was a long time member of MRFF’s Advisory Board. When the names of those killed in the attack were released, the media naturally took to the web in search of biographical information on them for their reports. This led scores of reporters to the Advisory Board page on the MRFF website, where they found a more detailed bio of Glen than could be found elsewhere on the web. Finding MRFF’s bio of Glen of course led to countless requests from the media for statements from Mikey, both as the head of MRFF and a close friend of Glen. One of these media requests was for Mikey to appear on the Justice with Judge Jeanine show on FOX News. Mikey appeared on the show on Sunday, September 16.
Two days later, on Tuesday, September 18, Maj. Dowty, whose obsession with Mikey knows no bounds whatsoever, came out with a post on his “ministry” blog titled “Weinstein Uses Friend’s Death to Shill for Foundation.”
Apparently not being able to grasp that Glen Doherty was a dedicated member and advocate of MRFF (and also apparently needing to look up the word shill), Maj. Dowty proceeded to write a lengthy rant bashing Mikey for talking about MRFF during his appearance on FOX. Of course Mikey talked about MRFF and the fight against religious extremism during this interview! This fight was the reason that he met and became friends with Glen! When Mikey recounted the last time he talked to Glen, which was a few weeks before he left for Libya, he said they talked about the new Air Force regulation prohibiting commanders from proselytizing. This new regulation would of course have been a big topic during their last conversation. This was a very important victory that Glen was extremely excited about.
