Gingrich Announces Endorsement from Hate Group ‘American Family Association’

Proudly touting the support of deranged bigots

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?

This will make Reverend Wright seem like an annoying fly at a BBQ.

Newt will not be able to separate himself from Fischer.

Isn’t the FFA (that caused Lowe’s to pull its adverts from “All American Muslim”) even more certifiably insane than the AFA?

So he’s got the RWNJ and the Adulterers both endorsing him?

Maybe the guy is more of a uniter than we give him credit for.

Ironic, since Fischer would like to have Newt and Callista arrested for adultery.

Newt Gingrich recognizes the threat to our country posed by judges and lawyers imposing values upon the country inconsistent with our religious heritage, and has proposed constitutional steps to bring the courts back in balance under the constitution,” Wildmon said in a statement.

“promotes conservative Christian values.”

“outright hate group, run by people who are absolutely bug-eyed nuts; traffics in the worst kind of bigotry”

Did you mean to be redundant?
