"All right everyone, the U.S. Army is outside now. Don't worry, I'm going to filibuster them while you all get away."
The American Family Association is nuts. They're (1) a hate group and (2) nuts. Have I mentioned how freaking nuts they are
Upset that the AFA was included on an Army training session’s list of hate groups, AFA spokesman Bryan Fischer on Friday charged that the Armed Forces will use “lethal force” against Christians and Tea Party activists, and may even “surround” the hotel hosting next year’s Values Voter Summit.
“The military is being conditioned to use weapons on the American Family Association. The soldiers are being conditioned in their brains to think of evangelicals, Tea Partyers, the American Family Association and the Family Research Council as domestic enemies that may have to be neutralized by lethal force,” Fischer maintained. “The people you got to watch out for, you may have to turn your tanks on, are American Family Association.”
The Army likely included them on a list of hate groups because they are a hate group
. Getting from that to the notion of a U.S. Army assault on the crackpot-and-Republican-laden Value Voters Summit is a hell of a stretch, but not that far afield from Bryan Fischer's normal fever dreams
Mind you, I'm not saying it's a bad idea. Just that it's probably not likely. Why this particular cult gets constant affection from a who's who list of national Republican officeholders shall be left unspeculated-to, but I don't see Ted Cruz and Phyllis Schlafly gunning it out with the Army from their hotel room balconies anytime soon.
