American Family Association fails miserably in its defense of Breitbart

Religious right groups are pandering very hard to defend the Breitbart news site from accurate charges that it panders to the white supremacist alt-right and embraces racism, sexism, and anti-Semitism.

First it was the Family Research Council defending the site and its former editor, Steve Bannon, while omitting the website's history of appealing to white supremacists.

Now, it is the American Family Association not only defending Breitbart but also its boycott of the Kellogg corporation. Recently, Kellogg, citing that Breitbart's appeal to the white supremacist alt-right, pulled its advertising from the site.  Via its fake news publication, One News Now, AFA said the following about the decision:

"... Kellogg's has shown how utterly intolerant they are of anyone's viewpoint other than their own," AFA spokesman Walker Wildmon says by way of explanation.

AFA is known for past boycotts, too, including an ongoing boycott of Target stores due to a liberal corporate policy that caters to transgendered employees and customers.

AFA is also familiar with left-wing scare tactics, since the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center has designated AFA a "hate group."

Writers at Breitbart.com wrote glowingly about Trump during the presidential campaign, drawing criticism from fellow conservatives about its editorial content. Yet the website drew little attention from the Left until Bannon was named an advisor to Trump in the final months of the campaign. 

It's ironic that AFA calls Kellogg 'intolerant" for its boycott of Breitbart and then in the next sentence admits that the organization itself has engaged in a number of boycott. So to AFA, Kellogg is intolerant for boycotting but the organization itself isn't.

'TX bill could endanger lgbt youth' & other Tue. midday news briefs

TX Lt. Gov Dan Patrick unveils a damaging bill for lgbt youth.

New Texas bill endangers LGBT youth: Behind the legislation that could lead to a surge in anti-gay conversion therapy - Texas again. Deferring to "faith-based communities" communities when it comes to the fostering and adopting of children is a HUGE mistake. And yes, it would be worse than the problem it's supposed to solve. Seems to me that some Texas officials were too concerned with picking on lgbts instead of doing their jobs and here we are.

 Here’s What It’s REALLY Like Having A Transgender Parent - With all of the talk about the transgender community in the news, does it bother you that the media doesn't spotlight enough medical professionals, transgender men and women, or their children instead of phony experts from religious right and conservative think tanks? 

University of Oklahoma football players targeted with anti-gay abuse - Isn't it awful how some people use calling someone gay as an insult? When someone told me once said to me, "at least I don't suck d#$k," I retorted, "well maybe if you applied yourself, you never know what you could achieve."
