Update: Homosexual Activists Rickroll Internet in Attack on Mark Green
“Rick-rolling” is an internet bait-and-switch — where you are promised one thing while the hyperlink leads to another. That’s what the homosexual activists of GLAAD recently did to supporters and detractors alike — though their supporters didn’t even seem to notice.
Regarding the attempts to take down Mark Green as President Trump’s nominee for Secretary of the Army, Green had voiced his frustration with “the liberal left [that] has cut and spliced my words about terrorism and ISIS blatantly falsifying what I’ve said.”
GLAAD responded on Green’s Facebook page, saying [emphasis added]:
All we did was quote you. Hear for yourself starting at 15:20…
Similarly, they Tweeted [emphasis added]
All we did was quote him.
But you’ll note in neither of those social media bites did they actually provide a quotation. And, in fact, if you listen to the audio at 15:20, no quotes come from Mark Green that say what GLAAD claims they are “quoting”. So, instead of hearing what GLAAD says you’ll hear — you hear something entirely different. You’ve been rickrolled.
Again, for the record, the primary quote is below (and was already discussed). Even absent some important context, it still doesn’t say what the homosexual activists are claiming:
The government exists to honor those people who live honorably, who do good things – to reward people who behave well and to crush evil. So that means as a state senator, my responsibility very clearly in Romans 13 is to create an environment where people who do right are rewarded and the people who do wrong are crushed. Evil is crushed.
So I’m going to protect women in their bathrooms…
At the Huffington Post, though, GLAAD went even further and jumped the shark:
GLAAD unearthed and shared the full, unedited audio interview…
It’s not hard to “unearth” something publicly available on the internet, but OK. At least we have primary material.
…in which Mark Green called transgender Americans an ‘evil’ that must be ‘crushed,’” said Sarah Kate Ellis, the group’s president and CEO.
Except… if you listen to the full, unedited audio interview provided by GLAAD, Mark Green doesn’t call transgender Americans anything, nor does he say they must be crushed. Note, again, GLAAD does not quote anything.
“Mark Green can try and blame others, but it’s his own words that make him unfit to be the next Army Secretary.”
Hate to break it to you Ellis, but it’s not “his own words” if they’re your words instead of his. How about you try quoting next time you say you’re going to provide a quote?
Despite your repeated pleas, you didn’t quote him. You just made something up. Apparently the truth isn’t good enough.
As an aside, Liberty Mutual is sponsoring the GLAAD media awards. If their version of “quote” is the same as GLAAD’s, you may want to get your insurance somewhere else.
