Topic: Accuracy in Media
Accuracy in Media's favorite pseudonymous coward, "Jonah Knox," uses his Nov. 5 AIM column to ask the question, "Will the Tea Party Tackle the Moral Crisis?" And by "moral crisis," "Knox" means the existence of gays.
"Knox" wrote that failed New York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino "initially made correct statements about homosexuality, but homosexuals and their leftist allies came out in force to smear him." But he lamented that "Paladino later backed down from his comments which earned him a reprieve from GOProud but proved that his conservatism was itself questionable."
"Knox" then attacked MSNBC's Ed Schultz because he "used Paladino’s remarks to accuse the GOP of “homophobia,” which is supposed to be an unwarranted fear of a 'lifestyle' that is characterized by serious health problems that frequently result in disease and death. It’s not homophobia but common sense and concerns for public health that make people recoil from embracing 'gay rights.'"
Yeah, you see where this is going, and it deteriorates quickly. "Knox" goes on to assert that "there is an urgent need for conservatives concerned about morality and values to understand why the agenda of the 'gay conservatives' has to be exposed and defeated." He recites a laundry list of alleged "crimes committed by homosexuals in the U.S. and worldwide are either unreported or not described by their true nature." Among them: "Perez Hilton calling Carrie Prejean a c***." You really want to throw Hilton in prison for that, "Jonah"?
"Knox" also asserts that "There is a clear connection between Marxism and homosexuality," citing as evidence two guys alleged to be communist. "Knox" apparently thinks that two people comprise a scientifically valid sample.
Given that "Knox" hates gays as much as AIM's Cliff Kincaid does, how do we know that "Knox" really isn't Kincaid himself?
