Ford ally AFA promotes known "hate group" that "echoes Nazi Germany," per lead civil rights group
Ford Motor Company’s new friend, the extremist American Family Association (AFA), is promoting the research of a known "hate group" whose work "echoes Nazi German," according to one of America’s premiere civil rights groups (see samples below).
The hate group, the Family Research Institute (based in Colorado) is run by a discredited anti-gay researcher named Paul Cameron. What is most troubling about the AFA helping to disseminate Cameron’s "research" is that Cameron’s "institute" has been declared a "hate group" by the highly-regarded civil rights leader Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization best known for successfully taking on the Klan.
With Ford’s Nazi past, you’d think the company would be a bit more sensitive about aligning itself with those who promote Nazi-esque "science" in the year 2005. You’d think wrong.
Has Ford, the company or the family, ever apologized for or renounced the stomach-turning anti-Semitism of their patriarch, Henry Ford, Sr.? Just wondering…
