AFA rips, reuploads, reinterprets video as if it's their own; feign surprise if you wish

by Jeremy Hooper

The American Family Association is distributing a video, uploaded to their own YouTube channel, wherein the SPLC-designated "hate group" decries Home Depot for having a truck in the San Francisco LGBT Pride parade:

Only problem (besides the obvious anti-gay sentiment)? AFA lifted this video without the consent or knowledge of the pro-LGBT videographer who filmed it:

The AFA -- without permission, support, sourcing, or even reason, since they could've simply shared the original video if they wanted -- is distributing this reuploaded, uncredited clip through its online and email channels…

…without regard for ownership or intent, or even a link back to the original source. Whereas they could have just used the already in-place, fully embeddable clip and commented on it (which is standard practice and of course perfectly acceptable), the AFA is instead acting like this is some sort of shocking exposé that they were intrepid enough to catch on camera. What was once a celebration of corporate support, AFA has turned into an example of anti-family "agenda promotion."

Typical. Still insulting.
