Family Research Council Hate Group President Tony Perkins Has Proven Ties To The Ku Klux Klan

This isn’t exactly “new” news.  But it has been forgotten over the years that Family Research Council President Tony Perkins does have ties to white supremacists. a  This information must brought to light again and again. 

In 1996, Tony Perkins paid former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke $82,000 for use of his mailing list.(Both Perkins and Duke are from Louisiana)  At the time, Perkins was campaign manager for Louis E. “Woody” Jenkins, a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Louisiana. The Federal Election Commission fined the Jenkins campaign $3,000 for attempting to hide the money paid to Duke. The Family Research Council has always claimed that Perkins was unaware of David Dukes involvement with the KKK even though it was well known at the time.  Of course, if Perkins had been unaware of Duke’s connection to this list and the Klan then why did they try to hide the money paid to David Duke?

But that’s not all…..

In 2001, Perkins addressed the Council of Conservative Citizens (successor organization to the anti-integration White Citizens Council) – a known racist group with an agenda of white supremacy. CCC members focus on issues like interracial marriage, which the group calls “mongrelization of the races”; black-on-white violence; and the demise of white Southern pride and culture, best exemplified in the debate about the Confederate flag. Additionally, in its heightened rhetoric about the expropriation of states’ rights by the federal government and by an impending “New World Order,”  Perkins refuses to answer questions about his affiliation with this White Supremacist organization  Associates of the CCC include Mark Cotterill, Chris Temple, Jared Taylor, Paul Fromm and once again David Duke.

So in 1996 Perkins he didn’t know Duke had “KKK” white supremacist/Klan connections but 5 years later in 2001 Perkins speaks at a white supremacist hate group meeting that had associations to David Duke and the “KKK”?

BIG coincidence.

In 2002, Perkins embarked on a campaign to run for the US Senate Perkins was dogged with questions about his involvement with David Duke. Perkins issued a flat denial that he had ever had anything to do with Duke, and he denounced him for good measure. Fortunately for us, Perkins’s signature was on the document authorizing the purchase of Duke’s list.”

To this day Perkins refuses to talk about this and respond to questions in hopes that it will go away.  And it seems to be working until now.  And I for one WILL NOT let this information fade into the woodwork.

Perkins is an anti-gay racist who makes his money off hate.  Pure and simple.  That this man…..no this THING can make money off the noxious evil hate he spreads is unthinkable.  And whats even more unthinkable that right wing GOP politicians look to him for advice and follow him.

THIS is the kind of information that needs to be kept alive and told, and retold and shouted to expose this racist anti-gay hate mongering charlatan for the evil fucking human being  that he is and should be used to destroy him.
