For years I have been posting about Family Research Council President Tony Perkins and his ties to various White Supremacist Organizations. Back in 2001 then Louisiana state Rep. Perkins addressed and received an award from the Council Of Conservative Citizens, an SPLC certified racist hate group with active chapters in more than a dozen states including South Carolina.
Now this weekend we learn that another follower of the CCC is Charleston mass murderer Dylann Roof.
The Inquisitr quotes from Roof’s just-discovered manifesto:
“But more importantly this prompted me to type in the words ‘black on White crime’ into Google, and I have never been the same since that day. The first website I came to was the Council of Conservative Citizens. There were pages upon pages of these brutal black on White murders. I was in disbelief. At this moment I realized that something was very wrong. How could the news be blowing up the Trayvon Martin case while hundreds of these black on White murders got ignored?”
Per its website, the CCC opposes “race mixing” and considers black people “a retrograde species of humanity.”
According to the SPLC, the CCC calls LGBT Americans “perverted sodomites.” and notes that the membership rolls of the Council Of Conservative Citizens “overlap greatly” with those of the League Of The South,
Perkins’ speech to the CCC (formerly the White Citizens Council) came only five years after he was fined by the Federal Elections Commission for lying about an $82k payment to Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke.
