Hate Group Hypocrisy Of The Day
Remember back in the spring when GLAAD launched a campaign to inform the media about the incendiary rhetoric of the hate groups leaders regularly invited to appear on cable news? Remember how those targeted hate groups leaders screamed blue bloody murder in dozens of blog posts and press releases? "Freedom of speech! Religious liberty! Censorship! You hate Jeeeeeeeebussss!"
Well. Guess who is now doing the very thing that they all fucking screeched about exactly five months ago? Via press release from a literal who's who of hate groups:
In light of last week's attempted murder of employees at the Family Research Council (FRC), we pro-family organizations ask Fox News to discontinue guest appearances by homosexual agitator Wayne Besen on the popular O'Reilly Factor TV show.Signing the above letter: Matt Barber, Mat Staver, Sally Kern, Peter LaBarbera, Linda Harvey, Scott Lively, Diane Gramley, Regina Griggs, Greg Quinlan, and several other hate group leaders. Sounds like I need to do another round of flashback quotes excerpting their own screams about "censorship." I'm sure Wayne Besen is falling the fuck out of his desk chair with laughter. I sure did.
Besen has a long history of slandering conservative groups and the ex-gay community in language that foments hatred and undermines civil discourse. t is time that the O'Reilly Factor cease using Besen as a guest commentator. Providing Besen with a forum lends credibility to his pernicious tactics and enables Besen to exploit his appearances for fundraising purposes.
When Fox News provides a forum to a radical homosexual activist known for employing inflammatory and hateful language in the service of promoting lies, the network becomes complicit in the damage done to the victims of Wayne Besen's and the SPLC's smear campaigns.
We ask the News Corporation, Fox News, and Bill O'Reilly to find more ethical spokespersons for the liberal view of sexuality. In their infamous Washington Post ad accusing FRC of hateful values, Besen and the SPLC claim that "words have consequences." Yes, they do. And Besen's may lead to violence.
