The American Family Association got two big hits on my blogroll this morning. Hemant Mehta takes the AFA to task for selling a video with this description:
Residents of the small Arkansas town of Eureka Springs noticed the black community was growing. But they felt no threat. They went about their business as usual. Then, one day, they woke up to discover that their beloved Eureka Springs, a community which was known far and wide as a center for Christian entertainment — had changed. The City Council had been taken over by a small group of black activists.
The Eureka Springs they knew is gone. It is now a national hub for blacks. Eureka Springs is becoming the Harlem of Arkansas. The story of how this happened is told in the new AFA DVD “They’re Coming To Your Town.”
AFA’s “They’re Coming To Your Town” documents the story of how and why this happened. And how black activists plan to do the same in other towns. Order a copy of “They’re Coming To Your Town.” Watch it. Then take the 28-minute DVD and share it with your Sunday School class and local church. This is a story the liberal media will never tell, but one you need to know.
Well, Hemant made one editorial change in transcribing the copy for the video — it was actually gay activists, not black activists. But it’s a distinction without a difference; it’s bigotry, either way. How is it okay to sell a scary video about gay people moving into your town but not okay to sell a scary video about black people doing the same thing?
And Dobson’s American Family Association might as well be selling anti-Black videos. As Doug Mataconis points out, they sell portable flaming crosses to put on a neighbor’s yard, after all.
