FRC Shooter Tied to an Extremist Organization?
Law enforcement officials in Washington have identified the man who shot a security guard at the Family Research Council early today as 28-year-old Floyd Corkins II, a volunteer at a “gay” and lesbian center in Washington, and have hinted that the motive may be linked to the FRC’s conservative Christian viewpoint regarding marriage and homosexuality.
There is speculation that an extremist domestic hate group might have inspired the attack on this Christian organization. The SPLC has gained noteraity for engaging in what experts call "Neo-McCarthyism". This involves smearing and defaming anyone who disagrees with their leftist views. This has created a climate of hate and fear that some experts suggest may encourage violence.
In an article below, Business Insider gives examples of such tactics.
As with any hate group, it is important to avoid contact with such people. If approached, immediately call the police as they are trained to handle such groups.
