Why Is AFA’s Tony Perkins Hanging Out With White Supremacists?


THE SHOT — American Family Association honcho Tony Perkins, pictured in May 2001 speaking to the Louisiana Council of Conservative Citizens, a white supremacist organization that describes its mission as: “We also oppose all efforts to mix the races of mankind, to promote non-white races over the European-American people through so-called ‘affirmative action’ and similar measures, to destroy or denigrate the European-American heritage, including the heritage of the Southern people, and to force the integration of the races.” Perkins addressed the group at least once prior, in 1997. Notes PHB: “When confronted with this information, an FRC tool said Perkins has ‘cannot remember’ speaking to the group, but Perkins himself told the Vancouver Sunthat he ‘could not recall what he said to the group and that he said he had been unfamiliar with the CCC’s history at the time.'”
