Dishonest or dumb?

A couple weeks ago I posted an earlier video from Rob Tisinai, in which he explodes christianst lies against marriage equality. In this video he takes on a far right religious group called “Traditional Values Coalition”. The group makes fighting the civil and human rights of gay and lesbian Americans its mission, using lies, distortion and defamation as weapons.

In this video, Tisinai, who has a YouTube channel that I’ve subscribed to, looks at the TVC propaganda against H.R. 1913, the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009, and exposes their claims as—at best—incorrect. He shows how TVC is either being dishonest by manipulating statistical data, or just dumb—not understanding it. After watching the video, I think they’re simply being dishonest—on purpose.

This guy has been doing a great job of exposing the lies and distortions of the christianist right, and without the angry frustration that comes through when people like me try to do it. If we had a few dozen more like him, we might be able to expose the far right in the light of truth, helping normal people be rid of the winguts and their lies once and for all. But Rob is making a fantastic start all on his own.
