Family Research Council (FRC) officials released video of federal investigators questioning convicted domestic terrorist Floyd Lee Corkins II, who explained that he attacked the group’s headquarters because the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) identified them as a “hate group” due to their traditional marriage views.
“Southern Poverty Law lists anti-gay groups,” Corkins tells interrogators in the video, which FRC obtained from the FBI. “I found them online, did a little research, went to the website, stuff like that.”
The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard reported that Corkins, who pleaded guilty to terrorism charges, said in court that he hoped to “kill as many as possible and smear the Chick-Fil-A sandwiches in victims’ faces, and kill the guard.” As Bedard explained, “the shooting occurred after an executive with Chick-Fil-A announced his support for traditional marriage, angering same-sex marriage proponents.”
The suspect, a 28-year-old male from Virginia named Floyd Corkins, “made statements regarding their policies, and then opened fire with a gun striking a security guard,” a source told Fox News.
AP later confirmed that Corkins is a liberal activist who volunteers with a left-wing group in the D.C. area.

Then point out the consistent, constant calls to violence, you can't because they're not there, unlike what you see from the "right" pundits.
Just because you repeat things doesn't make them true.
If "WE" engage in the exact same behavior post some links, you made the claim now prove it.

I agree. We're only at the start of this. And believe that the think tanks know the effects and are making most excellent use of them. This is cold and calculated stuff toward some end, and that end typically involves wealth and power...for some.
Lee said at the time that he experienced an ‘‘awakening” when he watched former Vice President Al Gore’s environmental documentary ‘‘An Inconvenient Truth.”
