Christian Fascist Says Akin Victim of ‘Political Gang Rape’ »« Economist Nails Romney and Ryan for Distorting His Work

It’s Only Blacklisting When the Other Side Does It

Some of you may be familiar with the Commentator Accountability Project, which was created to inform media outlets of some of the more outrageous statements made by people they turned to for commentary, like Tony Perkins and others. When that project went live, howls of outrage went up from the religious right at this Stalin-style blacklisting. Here’s what Matt Barber and Peter LaBarbera said about it:

“McCarthyism is alive and well within the ranks of the homo-fascist political lobby. Since liberals can’t win the debate, all they have left is to silence dissent,” said Barber, AFTAH board member and Vice President of Liberty Counsel Action. “As we’ve seen evidenced by the recent [Sandra] Fluke flap involving Rush Limbaugh, left-wing extremists have ramped-up their Orwellian efforts to silence those who pose a threat to their radical secular-socialist agenda.

“I count it an honor to be included among such a distinguished list of pro-family warriors,” Barber said. “As Christ followers, we will never stop speaking God’s truth in love. These homosexualist hatemongers have exposed who they truly are. They will never silence us.”

Said AFTAH’s LaBarbera: “This is all about silencing, discrediting and demonizing pro-family voices. I guess GLAAD is so afraid that the truth about homosexuality will be heard that it will go to the extreme of creating a ‘blacklist’ against moral leaders — for a media already disinclined to be fair on this politically correct issue.”

ZOMG! Orwellian homo-fascists are creating blacklists! And here’s what they say now by signing on to a letter demanding that Fox News no longer use Wayne Besen to talk about gay rights:

It 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.

Well isn’t that special?

    I find it amusing that even Tony Perkins, Matt Barber and Peter LaBarbera acknowledge that factual information about them will lose them their credibility on the national media.

    They are actually being honest, for once. I am quite surprised.

    That sounds like an actionable threat.

    Since when is promoting violence a “family value”? For fark’s sake, these people have such a narrow view of life. So sad.

    Many secular people also have “family values”, but for some of us, what defines “family” is more broad than husband-wife-child(ren).

    Translation: Fox should only employ “liberals” that will agree with everything we say, just like 99% of the “liberals” on Fox now.

    Does anyone know S.E Cupp’s position on gay rights, she may be able to take an additional role as convenient “gay rights supporter” to supplement her income as convenient pro-theocracy atheist.

    fixed.

    …. long standing question:

    what are the “strike” tags for this site?

    @10 Ichthyic

    Should be listed above the reply box. Replace the square brackets with less than and greater than signs.

  8. Ichthyic says

    yeah, for some reason it hasn’t been working for me for a while now.

    thought maybe they changed the tag.

    seems to be working now that I check again, though.

    *shrug*

    She would probably say something like, “I support gay rights, but the people who oppose them have some really good arguments and we should just let them have whatever they want.”
