Hypocrisy, Thy Name Is The American Family Association

Sometimes you have to wonder how the American Family Association can say much of what it does with a straight face. The latest screed from the homophobic hate group involves them calling out the Southern Poverty Law Center for the “immoral” tactic of calling for the boycott of right wing favorite Chick-fil-A, going so far as saying “it shows that the left uses boycotts and pressure campaigns to wage “economic warfare against their political enemies“.

It is economic warfare against their political enemies, that’s the only way to describe it, it is literally economic warfare against their political enemies; it is nothing more than that, nothing less than that. The left is almost universally unscrupulous, they are amoral—that’s part of their philosophy—so they feel free to attack anybody and anything that they don’t like and they have legions of lawyers willing to go into court and sue and sue and sue again. They’re organized base is willing to uniformly engage in economic boycotts of companies so it’s a highly organized, almost a military type of organization, very monolithic that gets behind the leaders on any issue and they attack people, and they attack people and terrify people. We don’t have anything like that we are not inclined to do that because we are not that immoral, we just don’t do those kinds of things unless we are attacked first.

What is so funny is that while the AFA is condemning Liberals for using boycotts, the AFA is doing the exact same thing against numerous companies that they feel are just a bit too friendly to the LGBT cause including their highly publicized boycotts of JC Penny and Home Depot.

American Family Association Donation Returned

Even a group whose unfortunate mission is to prevent the terminally ill from getting help to end their lives is distancing itself from the hate group also known as the American Family Association. The AFA was the largest donor to the Committee Against Physician Assisted Suicide, a group formed to fight against a ballot initiative in Massachusetts that would allow patients to self administer life ending drugs.

A group opposed to a question that would allow terminally ill patients to self-administer life-ending drugs is returning a $250,000 donation from a conservative Mississippi-based organization with anti-gay and anti-Muslim views.

The American Family Association was the largest single donor to the Committee Against Physician Assisted Suicide, which has raised more than $900,000 to oppose the question.

So it appears that this is a double win for those of us hoping for basic human rights. We bask in the glow of the homophobic AFA getting slapped in the face and we get $250,000 off the books of a group looking to prevent terminally ill patients from ending their pain and dying with dignity.

A Day Of Prayer Brought To You By Hatred And Bigotry

Texas Governor and possible GOP Presidential candidate Rick Perry is organizing what he claims is a non-denominational, apolitical, Christian (please explain that) day of prayer event in Houston August 6th and invited the 49 other Governors to attend. The event is being sponsored by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) listed hate group the American Family Association guided by the one and only Bryan Fischer.

You may or may not be familiar with Fischer but he has a long and storied history of gay, immigrant, and Muslim bashing, as well as just plain outright bigotry. With that in mind one would wonder why Perry, and believe it or not many other Republican’s, would want to be associated with such a hateful group/person and so far only Kansas’ Sam Brownbeck has publicly agreed to attend though Louisiana’s Bobby Jindal would like to if he can get around a scheduling conflict.

All I can say to anyone believing that Perry or anyone else pandering to this guy and his organization (Michele Bachmann, Mike Huckabee, Tim Pawlenty, Haley Barbour, and Newt Gingrich that means you) should be anywhere near the White House is please watch Fischer at work below…and then re-consider.
