They Just Can't Help Themselves


L
ast Tuesday we received another comment from Kevin Blier that betrays the bigotry that is a part of the hard wiring of the radical religious right brain.
"(O)nly a liberal from Berkeley could possibly buy that argument. Oh wait, it was a liberal from Berkeley who made the argument...go figure!"
No doubt Kevin feels at great ease to display his bias against certain places of origin.  It's a favored prejudice of most hate-mongers.  Of course it's become gauche among bigots to mention some places like, oh, say, Africa, Israel or Puerto Rico, but we get your drift, Kevin.

Here's a recent example from the founder of a group, the American Family Association, as well as its propaganda arm, AgapePress, that Kevin's Center for American Cultural Renewal likes to cite from time to time, [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8], ad nauseum.  Don Wildmon, an ardent homophobe activist, has gotten his panties in a knot over a "Freedom Ride"-like action called "Equality Ride" that began earlier this month under the auspices of Soulfource.
BENSON: Yeah, I mean, this is -- this is what you call -- what? -- chutzpah. This is -- this is --

WILDMON: That's a Jewish word, right? Be careful.
You can hear AFA's Don Wildmon for yourself here.  He also has some interesting and untrue things to say about gay income, à la "rich Jews."

UPDATE (3/28):  More on Don Wildmon and the AFA's anti-Semitism

What do fellow GOP conservatives say about The Center for American Cultural Renewal? "...(A)n organization with no Washington presence and little clout with social conservatives outside Vermont where it is based."
