Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council knows the secret to keeping the money flowing in to his organization: Scare the hell out of people and tell them that you’ll save them from impending doom that you just convinced them is going to happen. Thus we get this exchange on his radio show:
After the caller wondered if we are “going to find ourselves being loaded in cattle cars like it was when the Nazis took over before we realize we are in such terrible danger,” Perkins hailed her claim as an “excellent point.”
“You’ve just hit the nail on the head,” he exclaimed, warning that “isolationist” and “libertarian” politicians like Rand Paul are leaving America’s national security vulnerable and that violent anti-Christian persecution taking place in the Middle East could soon find its way here.
The caller’s words echoed his own claims in the past. Just a couple months ago Perkins wondered when the government will begin “rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians?” The correct answer, of course, is never, but that isn’t going to make anyone send money in, now is it?
