LGBT Hate Groups Received Millions of Dollars in COVID-19 PPP Small Business Loans

It has been exposed that LGBT hate groups, anti-immigration groups and anti-Muslim groups have received MILLIONS of dollars in government-aid backed Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) , intended for small businesses with 10 or fewer employees that have been harmed by the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic.

Via The New Civil Rights Movement:

The groups include the anti-Muslim organization The Center for Security Policy; the two anti-immigrant groups, the Center for Immigration Studies and the Federation for American Immigration Reform; and three rabidly anti-LGBTQ groups, the American Family Association (AFA), Liberty Counsel and the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI).

The  Liberty Counsel received somewhere between $350,000 and $1 million from the PPP program while listing they had no jobs to retain . It is unclear what Liberty Counsel was planning to do with its hundreds of thousands in government loans but I am sure we can all guess.

The largest loan went to the anti-LGBT hate group the American Family Association, which was allotted between $1 million and $2 million to support 124 jobs.

In its 2017 tax filing, which is the latest available, the AFA reported revenues exceeding $18.4 million, net assets of about $30 million.

In 2010 AFA’s most notorious wingnut Bryan Fischer blamed gay men for being Nazis and causing the holocaust.

“Homosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and six million dead Jews.” — Bryan Fischer, AFA director of issue analysis for government and public policy, 2010.

Other AFA statements on homosexuality include:

“This [policy] means a man can simply say he ‘feels like a woman today’ and enter the women’s restroom … even if young girls and women are already in there. Target’s policy is exactly how sexual predators get access to their victims. And with Target publicly boasting that men can enter women’s bathrooms, where do you think predators are going to go?”
— Tim Wildmon, April 2016.

“Homosexuality is a poor and dangerous choice, and has been proven to lead to a litany of health hazards to not only the individuals but also society as a whole.” — AFA Action Alert, July 20, 2012.

“The homosexual movement is a progressive outgrowth of the sexual revolution of the past 40 years and will lead to the normalization of even more deviant behavior.” —Don Wildmon, AFA website.

“Homosexuals are rarely monogamous and have as many as 300 to 1,000 sexual partners over the course of a lifetime. … [T]he risk of sexual abuse in a homosexual household is much greater than in a heterosexual household.” – Bryan Fischer Web post, “The Truth about Gay Marriage and Civil Unions,” 2006
