AFA & Ford: Someone's gots some splainin' to do

by Jeremy Hooper

Earlier this morning, we showed you how the American Family Assocation has called off their boycott of the Ford Motor Company amidst cries of victory. And even though we are highly skeptical that Ford has capitulated to the AFA's demands (and also letting the automaker know that they are about to experience a HUGE GAY BACKLASH if they did), the folks on the far right are certainly starting to carry out the "WE WON" meme. Here is a blip that's running on MassResistance:

Picture 4-127

And here's WorldNetDaily's headline:

Picture 5-117

So here's what we need:

FROM THE AFA: We need some specifics. What, exactly, has Ford promised you? Your vague claims of victory do not a success make!

FROM FORD: You're probably going to have to dignify these claims. We seriously can;t imagine that you would even consider siding with the AFA considering the major backlash that erupted when you did so in 2005. But our community has been wronged before and certainly will be wronged again. So please reassure us ASAP.

Someone's being deceitful, whether it's the "pro-family" groups who are faking a triumph, or the motor company who is selling out their LGBT consumers under the weight of extremism. But neither the far right's misguided jubilance or the automaker's misguided kowtowing are something we will just sit back and allow to go on in an unchecked fashion!

**UPDATE: JoeMyGod got an answer from Ford. They company's response, in a nutshell: The AFA is full of it! Check that out:

Your thoughts

LOL @ the updated JMG news!!!

What else do you expect but lies and BS, from the likes of that hallucinating liver-spotted deflated blowup doll, Don Wildmon, and kooky company?

This makes me even more proud to be driving a Ford truck!

BTW, did Stephen Bennett ever get that discount, free vehicle, or whatever he was expecting from Ford, because he's "ex-gay" (and should be rewarded for being "special")? I know those "ex-gay" guys make their livings off handouts and by panhandling, but THAT was just ridiculously outrageous.

I suspected the AFA was lying, as usual. They're so full of manure that nothing they say can ever be taken at face value.
