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.

Why I Left The Republican Party

If one needs any reason why many people are leaving and have left the Republican Party, one need not look any further than the discussions going on over at the South Dakota GOP press release web site Dakota War College.

Bob Ellis takes time out of his busy day of hating gays and Liberals over at his place to tell the mostly republican audience that they need to measure up to his standards of conservatism or else. Obviously I could never live up to those standards (which is why I left a long time ago) and from what I can tell, neither can many others in the SDGOP whom have now become targets of Ellis and other fringe groups and their robo/name calling campaign to cleanse the party.

If you have the stomach, head on over and check it out and then try to honestly tell me that Ellis’s version of the GOP is any different than what we’re fighting against overseas with the only difference being the book that they use to justify their hatred and the tactics being employed to make their point.

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.
