False Right Wing Talking Points Never Die
One thing that you can count on from the Religious Right is that once a talking point has been established, it will be repeated endlessly even after it has been proven to be demonstrably false.
For example, several months ago we wrote a post debunking the idea that Floyd Lee Corkins, the man convicted of attacking the Family Research Council with the intent to kill as many people as possible in 2012, found the FRC headquarters because of a "hate map" posted on the Southern Poverty Law Center's website.
As we pointed out, the map was nothing more than a vague image of Washington, DC and the addresses of the organizations on it were not even listed:
How that vague image somehow directed Corkins to the FRC's headquarters is never explained. In fact, the map doesn't even provide any data as to FRC's actual location, unlike the FRC's own website which provides its address and detailed directions.
It is pretty obvious that nobody in the world would be able to find their way to FRC's office using this map, but that didn't stop "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt from declaring (23:00 in) on his program today that the SPLC "listed the address of the FRC on their website and that's the map used by the shooter, Floyd Corkins, to go in with a gun and try to kill people at FRC headquarters ... He later told police he relied on the Southern Poverty Law Center map to find the address of his victims."
None of that is true:
