The Family Research Council (FRC) has a long and inglorious history of hatred directed at and attempts to violate the rights of Muslims, Gays, Women and anyone else who refuses to goose-step to their Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christian dogma.  Now they have chosen yet another notorious hatemonger to a high executive post.

14BoykinThe Family Research Council (FRC), an anti-gay hate group that claims LGBT rights advocates want to “recognize pedophiles as the ‘prophets’ of a new sexual order,” announced on Friday the appointment of retired Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin as its new executive vice president.

The press release accurately describes Boykin as a veteran who spent 36 years in the Army, serving in the elite Delta Force and, later, as deputy undersecretary of defense and intelligence in Donald Rumsfeld’s Pentagon.

What it does not mention, however, is Boykin’s troubled history of making  damaging, controversial statements; his work as a radical anti-Muslim propagandist; or his close involvement with the New Apostolic Reformation, a theocratic evangelical movement that believes demons control LGBT people, Catholics, Muslims and freemasons.

Boykin, who in 2011 said Muslims do not have First Amendment rights because Islam “is not just a religion, it is a totalitarian way of life,” became the subject of international criticism in 2003 when it came out that he had given a series of speeches at religious events, wearing full military dress, in which he said the United States was fighting “Satan” in the Middle East and insisted his God was stronger than that of his enemies… [emphasis added]

Here’s Boykin in action.

I could have chosen a video in which Boykin and Glenn Beck found themselves in complete agreement about everything they discussed, but I had mercy on you.

I’m not at all surprised that FRC chose Boykin.  However, I am appalled that such an individual climbed such a high rank in our in our military.

In a Republican Regime, Boykin and people like him would make decisions over your lives.

  1. The Family Research Council (FRC) = Inglorious Basterds (and not the movie!) — It never ceases to amaze me that anti LGBT groups still continue to equate pedophilia with homosexuality when all evidence shows that one has nothing to do with the other, and that the greatest number of pedophiles are heterosexual men.  Of course they purposely don't mention that because that wouldn't serve their purpose of lying to people, unfortunately to people who won't bother to think about the statements or challenge them.
     
    "…his close involvement with the New Apostolic Reformation, a theocratic evangelical movement that believes demons control LGBT people, Catholics, Muslims and freemasons." — Catholics and freemasons too!  Oh my, he does have a load of hate in him!  I am not Catholic and I have a problem with the Catholic hierarchy and their need for blind obedience to church doctrine from their faithful, but this . . .?  I'm surprised that they haven't chosen to hate Jews too!
     
    And Boykin's comments on 'Occupy' — aberrant behaviour — using drugs, robbing and raping; youth robbed of their identity as Americans; Marxists.  He is so far off the mark — he has no idea about socialism or Marxism.  And I would say that 'Occupy' has helped youth find their identity as Americans, the Americans that started this country, that wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
     
    Boykin and Beck — that would have been something to see!  I suppose you were having pity on our pocket books because after seeing that, we'd need new monitors and keyboards!?
     
    I said yesterday that Cheney was dog shit on Rmoney's shoe that he couldn't shake off fast enough.  Well if these guys are truly supporting Rmoney, here's an even bigger pile of dog shit for Rmoney to shake off!  I think Rmoney should carry one of those really big pooper-scoopers with him at all times.
