Anti-LGBT Hate Group Lawyer Takes To Fox News To Whine About Being Called A Hate Group [VIDEO]

On Friday night Alliance Defending Freedom lawyer Kristen Waggoner appeared on Fox News to denounce ABC, NBC, and other outlets for correctly naming them as a hate group. As I’ve reported many times, the ADF openly advocates for criminalizing homosexuality and, of course, against virtually any LGBT civil rights. In fact, they even appeared before the Supreme Court in the landmark Lawrence V Texas ruling that struck down the remain anti-sodomy laws across the United States.

In his introduction, Fox host Tucker Carlson railed against the “widely discredited” Southern Poverty Law Center for categorizing the ADF as a hate group, noting that the American College Of Pediatricians is also so designated. What Carlson fails to mention, naturally, is that the American College of Pediatricians is a tiny fringe group of 200 or so haters whose name is intended to confuse the public with the legitimate and very pro-LGBT American Academy of Pediatrics, which has 64,000 members.

    And she makes a nice living. Which is what it’s all really about.

  • ADF calls for overturning Lawrence and enforcing sodomy laws. I think “hate group” is an accurate description. I would just call them bigots as that’s simpler and more accurate, but I’m not going to quibble over words.

    • Raisinhead

      The SPLC designation and context is done with clear, sometimes spartan, language, designed to withstand scrutiny. But relies heavily on the actual words used by ADF and associates. Unlike ADF itself, it doesn’t rely on made-up materials that high-schooler could pick holes in.

    • -M-

      Actually, hateful as that is, it wouldn’t be nearly enough to get SPLC to call them a hate group, I don’t know how SPLC specifically phrases it but the gist is that you have to attack people with false and defamatory rhetoric that dehumanizes or engenders hate to qualify for the designation. You can be as anti- X, Y, or Z or pro- legalized or government discrimination as you want and not be a SPLC certified hate group as long as you don’t cross that line.

      and with overwhelming equality!

    The only purpose of the Alliance Defending Freedom is to promote the idea of freedom as the right to discriminate. You’d think they’d wear the designation of “hate group” as a badge of honor since they clearly hate the LGBTQ community and have made it the entire focus of what they do.

    If repeating shameless propaganda is shameful then Tuck and everyone else at Fox should be ashamed of themselves.

  • Sure feels like hate when you’re the target of your client’s legislative goals to marginalize humans not exactly like themselves. Their fight to keep us in the closet just encourages bigotry and violence against us. Most of the blood is on their hands as it is on your’s for your complicity.

    “As the homosexual agenda continues to sexualize our culture, other once-forbidden behaviors are exalted as just more alternative lifestyles. The result is that the well-being of millions of children is at risk, along with the right of parents to protect their children from sexual exploitation.”

  • you can tell she is one of those professional liar/lobbying types who just loves the fact that she’s got a great job on the hater gravy train. i forget who funds these idiots, but the fact that they’re on TV a lot tells me there’s at least one rich person keeping them afloat in an era when donations for failing groups like this are hitting all time lows. you just wait, you’ll see her again, shilling for an oil company or mercenary group or some other right wing concern, with the same fake smile and fake outrage when inconvenient facts get in the way of their carefully crafted misrepresentations and lies. i bet she’s making at least six figures. maybe not all of it official income that she has to report and pay taxes on, wink wink nudge nudge.

    • The_Wretched

      ADF is massively capitalized by the christianist oligarchs. It’s up there with the Becket Fund for pushing the chistianist legal agenda with as many millions as they need for it.

  • netxtown

    One look at her and you can just feel the I-am-second-class-woman emanating from her biblical soul. Men control her – and she likes it that way.

  • Bad Tom

    The Southern Poverty Law Center applauds you for continuing to point out that hate groups exist, and that the ADF is considered one of them.

  • MBear

    Really, it’s like pointing at something to a dog: they look at your finger.

    Very simple:
    – Objective criteria for labelling a group as a hate group
    – ADF pings those criteria

    Don’t want to get labelled as a hate group? Stop lying, stop being anti-reality.
    Really: too much to ask from religious grifters. Grift grift grift. Oh what money they make!

    “What I object to is the name calling” – Tucker Carlson

    • Reality.Bites

      My late dog could understand pointing, but he was a border collie/German shepherd mix and pretty smart. My previous dog did the look at finger thing

      • MBear

        We have basenjis and they look where we’re pointing, too. 😉 Ours are smart, but mischievously smart – if they were high school students they’d break into the principal’s office to steal the test answers and sell them for cigarette money.
        But still: *usually* dogs look at your finger.

    • TheManicMechanic

      My two dogs learned early on to look where I point, probably because it directed them to lost treats, food, the cat, etc..

  • DaveMiller135

    If I smile real big, no one will believe how much we hate. C’mon, we gotta have someone we can hate. We stopped being so obvious about the coloreds, and switched over to the fags. If we can’t openly hate homos, then who’s left? Fatties?

    God help us.

    That makes you a hate group.

    With Trump stacking the federal judiciary with right-wing religious nutters like Gorsuch, ADF’s track record is likely to get much, much better.

    Thanks to all those too lazy or too righteous to vote for Hillary.

  • Galvestonian

    O.K – so they’re certainly NOT a ‘love group’ or anything approaching understanding and kindness. When a group certifies American taxpaying citizens, people whose only crime is love as unnatural, perverted and whatever doesn’t qualify them as anything but hate. So F**K them.

  • Todd

    Kristen ….. has your ‘ministry’ defended any LGBT people or organizations ??

    Tucker ….. FUCK YOU, you asshole. You know exactly who they are.

    Fox News. Those two words alone…Destroy ANY credibility. Period.
    Thankful for the Southern Poverty Law Center and their “Hate Watch”.
    Being designated as a “Hate Group” is not arbitrary. It’s earned.
    It’s not a “smear”. It’s a WARNING.
    The list only comes out once a year…after careful consideration.
    I know this first-hand.
    I was in touch with SPLC about a particular group here in Ohio. They asked that I submit EVERY quote, article, speech, media appearance, and more…FOR A YEAR, before a determination was made.
    I’m pretty sure that Fox News has never devoted that much time to fact gathering.
    Does the name Linda Harvey or her group Mission America ring a bell?
    Her group WAS added to the list, NOT because of any smear campaign…but rather because of that vile Woman’s own words!
    EXAMPLE: One year, during Suicide Prevention Week… Harvey took to the airwaves on her daily show to warn parents to steer clear of The Trevor Project…because it’s designed to “TURN YOUR KIDS GAY!!!” Nevermind that YOUR kid is considering ENDING THEIR LIFE!! WHAAAAT!!!!

    Oh, look, another smirking, blond Republicunt.

  • Dot Beech

    100 years from now, when people looking back at this era see that woman’s hair style, what are they going to think?

    Sure, it’s not entirely uncommon, but it is entirely unnatural and unflattering.

    She looks absurd and she dropped some serious money to make it happen.

  • agcons

    Well, Bucky, maybe you shouldn’t behave like a hate group?

  • Richard B

    Some of the very worst hate groups in our country use lofty patriotic sounding names to disguise themselves to the naïve and unaware, for example:
    * Alliance Defending Freedom
    * Family Research Council
    * American Family Association
    * Mission America
    * American College of Pediatricians
    * United Families International
    These sweetly named organizations work very hard to establish themselves as being credible and all despise being BRANDED as a HATE GROUPS, but we must do our due diligence or they will get away spreading their anti gay agendas.
    In particular, Alliance Defending Freedom(ADF) is an extraordinarily dangerous organization to the LGBTQ community and potentially one of the very worst hate groups in America. They are the nefarious legal arm to other hate groups and work internationally to use the court systems to advocate the creation of legal precedents to strip away LGBTQ rights and work tirelessly to make it illegal to be gay.
    They have fought us tirelessly in just about every legal case our tribe has been in.
    We all know Tucker Carlson is skittishly homophobic (you know what they say about self loathing closet cases) and the ADF certainly found a friendly forum to make their disingenuous complaints.
    Whenever the ADF shows up on television or radio, we should all complain to those networks vigorously they are giving publicity to a HATE GROUP.
