Redefining 'Hate Groups' in the Army

Neo-Nazis, the Klan and ... the American Family Association?

The war on religious liberty continues. Fox News’ Todd Starnes reports, “Several dozen U.S. Army active duty and reserve troops were told last week that the American Family Association, a well-respected Christian ministry, should be classified as a domestic hate group because the group advocates for traditional family values.” In other words, because the group stands for biblical values, the “tolerant” Left can’t tolerate them.

The incident allegedly happened during an official training session at Camp Shelby in Mississippi, which included a slide presentation listing the AFA alongside neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan. For AFA, the slide featured a picture of Fred Phelps of the Westboro “Baptist Church,” whose deranged flock grabs headlines by staging “God Hates Fags” protests at military funerals. Phelps has no connection to AFA, but much of the information was likely provided by the intolerant Leftists at the Southern Poverty Law Center.

An Army spokesman later said that the presentation was “produced by a soldier conducting a briefing which included info acquired from an Internet search,” and the briefing materials have “since been updated, and any references to AFA were removed.” But evidently, the Army is also trying to figure out who blew the whistle. Tragically, the military is becoming ever more a reflection of the cultural degradation promoted by the Left. But it’s critical that our military personnel are able to freely exercise the same rights they’ve sworn to defend.
