The AFA is a hate group
I don't think it is much of a stretch linguistically, to classify the AFA as a hate group, so I have begun referring to it as such. Of COURSE it is not working on spreading love or peace, it is a group meant to rouse anger, fear, and suspicion. . .or so I observe.
Yes, I've followed this whole Ford mess. Two minutes ago I sent an email to Ford Motor Company thanking them for 'seeing reason' and severing ties with the AFA, which as I wrote, amounts to a fringe hate group. I reminded Ford that the vast majority of its consumers value fairness, and are going to disapprove of them aligning themselves with such a shrill, extremist minority. A week ago I sent them a scathing letter of condemnation, asking them to re-consider their decision, so I feel a bit responsible for following up with a thank you now.
