FRC Hate Group Leader Tony Perkins Considers Run for GOP Congressional Seat
Tony Perkins, President of the of the officially designated hate group the Family Research Council is considering considering a run for Louisiana’s Sixth Congressional District.
Tony Perkins and his protege Gene Mills, the current leader of the Louisiana Family Forum (an organization founded by Perkins), have spent millions of dollars and the last fifteen years of their lives lying and spreading hateful propaganda about the LGBT community, all in the name of “Christianity”
Said Perkins: “I’ve been encouraged by many people to consider getting in and I’m thinking about it,” Perkins said. “It’s an attractive prospect to be closer to home.”
Perkins, who its says has ties to white supremacist groups in 1996, while managing Republican Woody Jenkins’s campaign for U.S. Senate, Perkins paid David Duke, the former Klansman, $82,500 for his mailing list; five years later, Perkins spoke before Louisiana’s Council of Conservative Citizens (CofCC) which Max Blumenthal calls “America’s premier racist organization”s.
Perkins has never denied that he paid for Duke’s mailing list (the campaign was fined for ethics violations) and refuses to talk about on national television and has he has said, that he didn’t know whose list it was. even though Duke is a close personal friend. Perkins has also never denied his appearance before the CofCC (he can’t, there is photographic proof); instead, even though he hails from Louisiana, that he didn’t know what organization it was.
