Tony Perkins Again Blames SPLC For FRC Shooting On Fox News: VIDEO


Family Research Council president Tony Perkins has again claimed that Southern Poverty Law Center and related groups played a role in Floyd Corkins' allegedly shooting a security guard at FRC's base in DC earlier this week.

"Now, Bill, let me say: the gunman, Floyd Corkins, pulled the trigger yesterday. He is responsible for shooting my colleague and my friend. But, let me say, I believe that the Southern Poverty Law Center is responsible for creating the environment that led to this," Perkins said on Bill O'Reilly's Fox News show, which headlined the segment by wondering if the FRC shooting was politically motivated. 

More from Perkins' argument against SPLC: "Because they disagree with our positions on marriage and certain religious issues, [they] have labeled us a ‘hate group’, and that gives license to lunatics like this to come in with a gun and shoot innocent people.”

Perkins was also asked about his group's association with Chick-fil-A, the conservative-run chicken franchise from which Corkins bought 15 sandwiches before heading to FRC's HQ. Perkins claims FRC and Chick-fil-A had the most frivolous of relationships, but hinted that he wouldn't mind getting more personal, especially if money is involved. "Chick-fil-A gave us $1,000 a few years ago. Far from being a big supporter of ours. We wouldn’t mind having their support but they haven’t been that way," he said. The conservative big-wig then brought the topic back to SPLC's list of hate groups. "In those reports, they say, ‘The Family Research Council, which is a hate group, a certified hate group from the Law Center.’ when you you marginalize people like that it gives license to people like this to take action.”

  1. Robert K, I think Bill O'Reilly is an apologist for homosexuality & as I'm Bengali and not Irish, I'm not Bill O'Reilly's son. I'm a non-religious person who sees something wrong with homo/lesbian activities and who believes in making it a crime to do sex changes. Aborting transexuals and homos/lesbians before they're born makes world a better place. ncidentally Diogenes Artkos, most gay bashings are men reacting to crimes the gays did.

    What I said Robert K, Diogenes Artkos about the truth that gay & lesbian sexual activities are comparable to drug junkyism and truth that sex changes are comparable to dangerous drug junkyism are facts. What I wrote about truth that most gay bashings are men reacting to crimes the gays first did are facts. What I say are facts just as it's a fact that Black lesbian Pam Spaulding farts and shits like every1 else. Pam Spaulding is a Black crack lesbian as she uses crack.

  2. Wealth is the test of a man's character. The best hearts are always the bravest. Honesty is the best policy.

  3. Ideal is the beacon. Without ideal, there is no secure direction; without direction ,there is no life. If you doubt yourself, then indeed you stand on shaky ground.
