Honestly, has the Family Research Council never received angry messages before? It sure seems that way, given that they are highlighting this voicemail they recently received on their blog, in their Washington Update, and even in a stand alone press release:
I read about your, uh, homophobic comments, and I just gotta give you some advice. It’s not a good idea to be, uh, an intolerant bigot s*****g. Uh, because, you know, you reap what you sow and when you start spreadin’ hate against other people, that’s exactly what you’re gonna get back. And, you know, who knows what effect that could have on you, or your family, or your office, you know, on G Street? Uh, just a bit of advice for ya. You should really learn, really-stop bein’ such a redneck piece of ****.
Granted, that is not a very nice message and it even seems to contain a vague threat, but if FRC thinks that is bad, they ought to see some of the messages we get here at RWW. And frankly the messages we get here don’t even begin to compare to the hate directed at groups like ACORN:
Hi, I was just calling to let you all know that Barack Obama needs to get hung. He’s a f*****g n****r, and he’s a piece of s**t. You guys are fraudulent, and you need to go to hell. All the n*****s on oak trees. They’re gonna get all hung honeys, they’re gonna get assassinated, they’re gonna get killed.
If FRC feels the message it received constituted a threat, they should contact the authorities. But they really ought to stop acting as if getting hate messages is uncommon or as if they are the only group receiving such messages.
