Idiot of the Week: Cliff Kincaid

cliff_kincaid.pngAnother week, another idiot. It was not easy to select just one this week, but our "winner" stole the show with the combination of blatant lying, religiously-motivated hatred, and fear mongering that always gets my attention.

This week's award goes to Christian extremist, Cliff Kincaid, of America’s Survival. This is the group who has been campaigning intensely against repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT). If they want to oppose DADT, fine. However, they've chosen to oppose it in a monstrously idiotic way, warning that "disease-tainted gay blood threatens our troops." See Think Progress for more, including the group's twisted video, and everything that is wrong with it.

Christian extremists are on the verge of losing two big issues in their bigoted crusade against the LGBT community: gays in the military and gay marriage. Public opinion is not on their side, and they know it. Like a cornered animal, they are going to fight with everything they've got. And let us all remember which side they took and be prepared to oppose the revisionist history they will surely attempt in the future.
