Gingrich Announces Endorsement from Hate Group ‘American Family Association’
Today, Newt Gingrich is proudly announcing the endorsement of what may be the most insane religious right group in America: the incredibly bigoted American Family Association, home of hate monger Bryan Fischer.
Newt Gingrich rolled out a pair of high-profile endorsements Tuesday, hoping to regain momentum in Iowa as recent polls have shown the one-time front-runner slipping back into the middle of the Republican pack.
Don Wildmon, the founder and chairman of the American Family Association, announced his support for Gingrich on Tuesday. The group, which promotes conservative Christian values and has a nationwide radio network of more than 180 stations, is a coup for Gingrich, who has struggled to convince conservative voters to overlook a past that includes multiple divorces and admitted marital infidelity.
Notice again, the bland description of the American Family Association in this article: “promotes conservative Christian values.”
In truth, this is an outright hate group, run by people who are absolutely bug-eyed nuts. I don’t expect the media to use words like that to describe them, of course — but is it too much to ask for a recognition of the fact that this group traffics in the worst kind of bigotry?
