FRC: Southern Poverty Law Center Watch YOUR Hate Rhetoric

The head of the Family Research Center, Tony Perkins, has responded to the shooting yesterday in which a crazed man carried Chick fil A bags and a 9mm gun with 50 rounds of ammo into the Christian organization because “he didn’t agree with” their political views. Those political views include traditional marriage–you know, that extremist view that marriage should be between one man and one woman.

Perkins issued a throw down to the Southern Poverty Law Center during a news conference. He told them to clean up their rhetoric and cease their reckless characterizations of organizations like FRC as “hate groups.”

Perkins claimed such characterizations emboldened the gay rights activist to take a gun–and bags containing 15 Chick fil A sandwiches–and shoot up the place.

Thanks, President Obama: You’re the Reason My Kid Didn’t Find a Summer Job and Likely Won’t Find One Next Year, Either.

I wanted her to concentrate on school which is why she didn’t start looking for summer work till May. My bad. But I wanted her to finish school STRONG. The kid was blowing the doors off the curriculum at her school, taking AP classes, team captain, Sunday School teacher, full load–stuff I know I wasn’t bothering to take in my slacker senior year. I wanted her to look strong going into college. So she started looking for her first REAL non babysitter job in May. She should have started in March.

Odds were against her, however. The Oregon unemployment rate went UP to 8.7% in July. And with a 17.2% U6 unemployment rate in the state of Oregon, it’s obvious adults are cobbling together several part time jobs to make up for the full time ones they lost. They’re more experienced workers and my kid probably didn’t have a chance against them. After all, do you want to pay a wet-behind-the-ears kid Oregon’s inflated minimum wage or start an experienced worker in that spot at that wage?

Exactly. 

Now fold in the unemployment rate of kids in the 16-19 age range: 24%. That’s right, one out of every four kids looking for jobs in that age group won’t find them. For black kids it’s even worse. Teenage black males have a more than 50% unemployment rate. When she graduates college I hope she’ll be in the 50% who can find a job in her field–or a job at all.

Leftist Obamanomics has made everything worse. Through the EPA overreach, local regulations and permit fees, systems development charges, the specter of Obamacare fines over the heads of small business and higher taxes and future uncertainty (among other things) getting a summer job is very difficult for teens. Higher costs mean fewer employees will be hired.

And now the President has illegally –by fiat–granted illegal kids of illegal aliens who are under 30 years old never-before-issued- (made up) work permits in order to curry favor with Hispanics during an election year. Those kids will be competing against my kid for the same summer jobs next year and for years to come. And so will their kids.

The Daily Caller reports the Obama Administration will allow even illegal alien middle school drop outs to become a part of the American work force.

Great. Now non citizens will continue to gobble up the starter jobs so many of us had when we were teens. That experience will be deprived of not just my kid but hundreds of thousands across America.

And now, because of  EEOC and other “minority rights” laws, a kid by the last name of Lopez or Gonzalez will get a leg up on the legal kid whose last name is Taft.

When someone tells you that these illegal alien kids were brought here “through no fault of their own,” you tell them they’re right; it’s their parents’ fault. Their parents’ law breaking created the problem and their parents should solve the problem.

But the President is making it my kid’s problem.

Mr. President, in her first election as an 18 year old who has earned the franchise: she will not be voting for you.

Romney Gives Best Speech This Side of C-Pac

It Really Was a Stemwinder

Despite this guy yawning (the only time anyone did) this speech my Mitt Romney was terrific. It might actually be better than the CPAC speech he gave right after he got out of the campaign the last time around.
I remember thinking at the time, where did THAT guy come from, I’ve never seen him before!
In yesterday’s Ohio speech, Romney called out Obama on his lack luster, divisive campaign in basic terms that I’ve never heard Mitt use.

Watch this!

Visit by Joe Biden Turned Down by Small Biz Owner

HT BREITBART
The new Crumb and Get It Bakery in Virginia probably could have used the PR that a Vice Presidential visit would bring, but the owners said no. The owner of the business turned down the visit by Joe Biden because of his boss’s comments about how small business owners ‘didn’t build that’ ‘you didn’t do that on your own.’

The VP’s advance team found another spot around the corner but the Crumb and Get It owner says a couple of Secret Service guys came back later, said thank you to him, and bought some cookies.

UPDATED: Shooter at Family Research Council Deranged Gay Activist

From Breitbart via the DC Cops:

The gunman who opened fire and shot a security guard at the Family Research Council’s Washington, D.C. office has now been identified as Floyd Corkins, a volunteer for the last six months at The DC Center for the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender) Community. 

Corkins allegedly made negative comments about the FRC before shooting the guard and could have intended to shoot FRC employees had the security guard not heroically intervened.

The FRC is a pro-life and pro-traditional marriage organization. For holding these beliefs, the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) labelled the Family Research Center as a hate group
This label is not without consequences. For instance, on Tuesday, the Human Rights Campaign, a gay rights organization, ran a story on a blog about Paul Ryan’s appearance next month at the Values Voters summit, which is sponsored by the FRC, titled, “Paul Ryan Speaking at Hate Group’s Annual Conference.” 
READ MORE HERE.

UPDATE: Here’s where the reference to the shooter holding the Chick fil A bags comes from:

Two law enforcement officials said Corkins was carrying sandwiches from Chick-fil-A, a fast-food chain whose president’s opposition to same sex marriage recently placed the restaurant at the center of a national cultural debate.

John Hinderaker over at Powerline Blog describes the shooter as a teacher. Hope he doesn’t get his job back. 

While at the time he writes his post Hinderaker complains some folks are going overboard deriding the media for the lack of coverage, in the light of a new day I would disagree. There’s been a dearth of coverage about this. It’s shocking actually.

The shooter worked as a volunteer at a local LGBT resource center.  While the Southern Poverty Law Center points fingers at Tea Party types who have committed no acts of violence as hate groups, they may want to rethink their definitions of hate after this shooting. 

The Southern Poverty Law Center was instrumental in suing the White Aryan Resistance and wiping out their finances when morons in Portland, Oregon murdered an Ethipian man in 1988. They were able to connect WAR as the inspiration for the murder. With this shooting there are even tighter connections between the LGBT community and this one shooting and the assault on Christianity. Don’t look for the crazies at SPLC to pursue this case, however.

There have been crazy church shootings, but this is the first time in memory somebody wanted to shoot up a religiously rooted group for the ‘crime’ of being ‘politically incorrect.’ 

Time for the gay community to dial back the hate rhetoric against Christians and do a gut check on just who exactly is doing the ‘hating’ around here.
