Another even crazier missive from AFA re: Walgreens


Tim Wildmon
Hate Group Leader Tim Wildmon - American Family Association
Saturday, American Family Association is doing it again. The hate group is striking out at yet another company that will tell them to assume an improbable position. It is a mix of crazy and stupid. The subject line of the email reads: “Walgreens shocking new policy puts women in real danger.” The headline is even more unhinged: “Unrestrained: Men can follow women into restroom for kicks.”

Both of those statements are demonstrably false. Those sanctimonious, holier-than-thou Christian supremacists at AFA have no problem whatsoever telling bold faced lies when it suits their purpose. Men simply do not pretend to be transgender in order to have access to women's bathrooms. It doesn't happen and Tiny Tim Wildmon's little brain is incapable of proving that it happens.

This is one of the many reasons that AFA is designated a hate group by Southern Poverty Law Center. When they are not claiming that gay people pose a threat to children they are positing that trans women pose a threat to other women. It would be comical were it not for the legions of people who believe every syllable of this nonsense.

The email goes on to state:
On Nov. 17, 2017, Walgreens issued a memo stating, “All individuals have a right to use restroom facilities that correspond to the individual's gender identity, regardless of the individual's sex assigned at birth.”
Well, that makes perfect sense to me. Where does Timmy think these people have been peeing all these years?
Since a similar public policy was announced by Target Stores, Inc. two years ago, dozens of women and children have been victimized by male predators inside Target stores.
That is simply a lie. There was one peeping Tom who was not trans and who was hitting other stores in the area. There may have been one other somewhere. Tim Wildmon cannot reasonably demonstrate that those are in any way related to Target policy or that anyone was “victimized.” Doesn't he have anything better to do with his time? Is he bored or something? I am sure that the good Christians could spend idle time at a soup kitchen or something that is actually worthwhile.

Supposedly, their idiotic petition already has 67,000 signatures (it's been up for a few days now). AFA is garnering attention at the expense of a vulnerable minority. They are people who are really being victimized. I doubt that Jesus would approve.
