This is the anti-gay marriage organization recently linked in the news to CFA owner's donations.

Doesn't say if the guard was armed or not? Armed guards are still intimidating to knuckleheads. This wasn't a terrorist plot was it? Glad he survived.

Well since he attacked a conservative organization, where is the media? shouldn't they be fair and try to link him to "Occupy wall street", "ACORN" , or at least "Democratic Underground"?

The shooter is in FBI custody and has not yet been charged, authorities said. A law enforcement official said at one point in the scuffle, the shooter expressed views that differed from those of the Family Research Council. The official also said the shooter was carrying a bag that had a Chick-Fil-A bag inside. Chick-Fil-A’s chief executive has expressed similar views against same-sex marriage as the Research Council.

Why is this not on all networks in detail.... if he had been a TEA party guy

another link:

A man suspected of shooting and wounding a security guard in the lobby of a Christian lobbying group had been volunteering at a community center for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.


A law enforcement official has identified the suspect arrested in Wednesday's shooting as Floyd Corkins II of Herndon, Va. Investigators were interviewing his neighbors.


Another official says the shooter made a negative reference about the work of the Family Research Council before opening fire. The officials spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation.


David Mariner is executive director of The DC Center for the LGBT Community. He says Corkins had been volunteering at the center for about the past 6 months. Mariner describes Corkins as "kind, gentle and unassuming."

After the guard gets the drop on him (with his own gun), he is now afraid of being shot. Missed oppurtunity.

Willing to kill others but scared of being hurt. What scum.

We'll see more of that, too. Especially if it looks like Obama isn't gonna get re-elected. He and his supporters won't go quietly, won't wait four more years to work within the system to get another of their own elected to office. They are a generation of people who demand immediate gratification of their desires. The media will fan the flames until blood runs in the streets.

Even more so if his successor, Elizabeth "Dances With Lies" Warren, loses her election in November. The state media has been fawning over her exactly the same way they did over the Dear Leader back in 2006.

Yeah, if simply opposing abortion and/or redefining marriage makes an organization a hate group, it may be time to start thinking about getting some gear together in case we have to start pulling guard duty shifts at our churches.

This scenario is just around the corner. Don't think I'm not being serious. It's open season on conservative Christians, and the Muslim Brotherhood is into our government at the highest levels. Just ask Hillary's sidekick. Well, she probably won't admit to anything. They can lie for jihad.

Just saw Tony Perkins, the president of FRC, on Fox. The "security guard" is actually the building operations manager who doubles as an unofficial unarmed security guard. The shooter was carrying a Sig 9mm with two extra magazines, along with a bag of 15 CFA sandwiches.

He says that CFA has only donated $1,000 to them over the past few years.

No, but he has ties to a LGBT hate group... Even if SPLC doesn't deem them a hate group..

Yes. But I think it was more of promoting and furthering their agenda to be able to say CFA gives money to hate groups. I don't think they take what SPLC a gospel. I just think it fit the agenda this time. How else can they try to get people stirred up about what the CEO said unless they can tie him and his money to a "hate group"

Sorry but somehow your train of thought on this derailed in my brain tunnel??????

As I get it, the group attacked was on the SPLC's list of hate groups. The loon that attacked had a bunch of CFA goodies in his bag. I can't say for sure but it appears as though the loon was trying to make a statement about CFA and the FRC deserving to be attacked because HE hatd that kind of group.

I kinda fail to see how a group, tagged as a "hate group" , being itself targeted by violence, fits the "media agenda"?:dunno:

Well, since the Southern Poverty Law Center labeled the organization a "hate group" I suppose the Natso left must support such intolerant violence. The Natsos on GT are strangely silent on this one.

I just hope the SPLC (http://foxnewsinsider.com/2012/08/16/frc-president-tony-perkins-speaks-out-following-shooting-points-finger-at-southern-poverty-law-center-for-labeling-frc-a-hate-group/) bigots sleep well at night knowing their intolerant hatred spawns violence.

What I meant is that CFA giving to religious groups or groups that support traditional marriage wouldn't make them seem as bad or evil as if the media said they donated to "Hate Groups".

I get that , but I am pointing out the SPLC being the media's authority.

Which is ironic in a way, since their actions towards "hate groups" actually makes them a "hate group"

Last I knew, The SPLC was prominently staffed by gays. You'd have to figure they have their own agenda.

You have to note also, that Obama's efforts to factionalize our "celebrate diversity" society into seething hate-filled splinter groups seems to be succeeding. Enough to get this mama's boy to get a gun and head off to do mass murder.

Thankfully, like many of those types, he lost his stomach for it when somebody resisted him with violence. I guess real life killing isn't as easy as it is on x-box games.

The BG was no longer a threat, so he had no legal grounds to shoot.

Maybe he will hang himself in his cell.

If it had been someone who did the same thing at the Planned Parenthood offices it would have beeen THE only news story of the week.

I sleep well at night knowing my firearms are ready to put down any attack against me by idiots who don't like what I believe. I don't care if any of the Libtards sleep well at night. Actually, maybe they don't. That is why they are so cranky and stupid. LOL!!!!

This will keep increasing in frequency as the left gets more worried about losing power. They will try anything to make us look bad.

You know a Racist is someone who is winning an argument with a liberal... Right???

I think you're on to something. Just the recent Chick Fil A controversy should make this page 1 news...unless it is being intentionally downplayed.

Instead, I look at CNN's front page and see that a lawyer was sued for saying bad things about a gay guy, and Rage Against the Machine doesn't like Paul Ryan. Closest thing to mentioning this event is an article titles: "What is the SPLC? | And the FRC?"

However, there are 2 articles about a Russian punk rock band being sent to prison for 2 years for acting up in a chruch.

That is a good article.

People here need to read it and then think: nearly all we know about the world, our government, crime, society, etc., outside of personal experience, we get from the news media or similar mass communication sources. When you stop and think about how biased and just plain false that information is, you have to wonder if we really know anything about what's going on in this country and the world, at all.

Personally I blame the nut that pulls the trigger. But maybe I'm misguided, I don't tend to blame Jodie Foster for Hinkley shooting the President either.

Folks, this just has to be said, here is some background on the shooter,


Corkins had been volunteering for roughly six months at The DC Center for the LGBT Community, according to David Mariner, executive director of the northwest Washington community center. Corkins usually staffed the center's front desk on Saturdays, and his most recent shift was about two weeks ago.

Now, what do you think the media would do if he had been a volunteer at the Family Research center and had gone shooting in the DC center for the LGBT Community?


Media bias much?
