“The military is being conditioned to use weapons on the American Family Association," Fishcer said during his program "Focal Point."
"The American military, the soldiers are being conditioned in their brains to think of evangelicals, tea partiers, the American Family Association and the Family Research Council as domestic enemies that may have to be neutralized by lethal force because that's what the military exists for. The military exists to kill people and to break things to preserve national security. That's why they exist. That's their job."
The AFA was listed as a domestic hate group during a briefing earlier this month at Camp Shelby in Mississippi. A Pentagon spokesman told Fox News that the slide used in the presentation "was produced by a soldier conducting a briefing which included info acquired from an Internet search." He said it was not based on "official Army sources, nor was it approved by senior Army leaders, senior equal opportunity counselors or judge-advocate personnel.”
Citing AFA's long history of anti-LGBT activity, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) began desginating the organization as a hate group in 2010.
