Kicked off of the air on CNN, Bryan Fischer says: CNN is ‘What the Gay Gestapo Looks Like in Action’

By: Friday October 19, 2012 3:00 pm

The tide has turned and hate and junk science purveyors like Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association need to be prepared to be tossed off the air (CNN’s Carol Costello had enough of his foolishness the other day). Now Fischer is foaming at the mouth — and TEH HOMO is to blame. If only [...]

Well done – CNN’s Carol Costello tosses hate-spewing Bryan Fischer off the air

By: Tuesday October 16, 2012 3:42 pm

The mainstream media usually gives professional Beltway homophobes like Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council and Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association uncontested air time to spew homophobic, misogynistic crap (often couched in pious “Christian” remarks about “family”). CNN’s Carol Costello had her fill of Fischer today. The headline from Mediaite: “CNN Anchor [...]

Dismissive, defensive Dana Milbank slams LGBT groups, Southern Poverty Law Center on Mike Signorile Show

By: Thursday August 23, 2012 10:11 am

Milbank’s reason for believing the Family Research Council can’t be a hate group is because it is a “Washington think tank” with respectability in political circles. Apparently Tony Perkins wardrobe and demeanor inoculate him from comparison to backwoods haters in Klan regalia. After publishing a poorly thought out column in the WaPo defending FRC last [...]

Challenges to Tony Perkins and the WaPo’s Dana Milbank column on FRC’s ‘hate group’ label

By: Tuesday August 21, 2012 1:01 pm

UPDATE: Dana Milbank will be on Michaelangelo Signorile’s show at 4:30 ET today to discuss his WaPo defense of Perkins and FRC. Michelangelo Signorile has published an open letter to the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins, challenging him to a public debate over at Huffpost or on his SiriusXM show over whether the organization deserves [...]

Dana Milbank gives WaPo readers a crash course on heterosupremacy as he argues that FRC is not a hate group

By: Friday August 17, 2012 1:21 pm

I could hardly believe what I was reading when I saw this breathtaking quote in Dana Milbank’s WaPo column arguing that the Family Research Council, because Tony Perkins doesn’t wear white sheets and go on Night Rides, isn’t a hate group. Gays and lesbians are winning the fight for equality by example and persuasion. Those [...]

Southern Poverty Law Center responds to ‘license to kill’ charge by FRC’s Tony Perkins

By: Thursday August 16, 2012 5:43 pm

Sadly, Family Research Council’s honcho Tony Perkins took to the media today in an attempt to discredit the Southern Poverty Law Center’s accurate assessment of FRC as a hate group, charging that the organization gave shooter Floyd Corkins a license to shoot the security guard at its building in DC. SPLC responds - with facts: Yesterday’s [...]

The Family Research Council shooting and the impact of words and heads in the sand about violence

By: Thursday August 16, 2012 1:30 pm

Thank goodness that I’ve been offline all night and most of today. I needed time to reflect upon the tragic shooting at the Family Research Council, where 28-year-old gunman Floyd Corkins of Virginia shot a security guard Wednesday at organization’s Washington, D.C. offices. Yesterday — when there weren’t a lot of details available at that [...]

Pennsylvania newspapers refer to white supremacist org as ‘white people’s rights group’

By: Sunday August 12, 2012 1:29 pm

The Philadelphia Daily News picks up a story by the Scranton Times-Tribune and doesn’t seem to have a problem with that phrase. Even worse, the Associated Press editors didn’t see an issue either. I love it when newspapers and other traditional media get on indy blogs for having “no editorial standards” and then lo and [...]

WTF from hate group spokesbot Bryan Fischer: neo-Nazi Sikh temple mass murderer is a liberal

By: Wednesday August 8, 2012 10:48 am

This goon Bryan Fischer, the director of issues analysis for the American Family Association (designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center),  is scrambling to spin that the racist piece of sh*te, Wade Michael Page, who blew away innocent Sikhs in their house of worship, cannot possibly share the same hateful world view as [...]
