Huey Freeman

The PAC [and Party] of Religious Bigots. . .

Jim Newell of Gawker did the dirty work so I don't have to pollute my blargh and video list with this commercial, but it has to be seen to be believed. The National Republican Trust PAC is not run by the Republican Party, but by NewsMax magazine -- one of the most right-wing commentary sites on the Internet.

No matter.

They are trading under their name, and has been with outrageous ads like this since 2008. The Republican Party needs to come out and condemn this group and demand they stop advertising under that name. Otherwise, I can only assume the Republican Party has no problem with religious bigotry in their name, which makes them accessories to it.
