In the wake of the racist chant video from University of Oklahoma frat members that went viral last week, right wingers have had some pretty interesting takes on the story, the latest coming from a prominent member of the Family Research Council.
FRC senior fellow Ken Blackwell appeared in the group’s weekly radio show Washington Watch to talk about the video, which resulted in two students being expelled and fraternity kicked off campus.
According to a report from Right Wing Watch, Blackwell praised the school for acting “quickly” and called the broad condemnation of the video “positive.”
But then things got weird:
This comes at at a time when you have one of our nemeses, Dan Savage, who is now having his life story being portrayed on a new sitcom on ABC, you know, here’s a guy that’s responsible for the coarsening of civil discussion and conversation being celebrated, at a time when there are knuckleheads who are still spewing from their lips the sort of nonsense that we’ve heard from these fraternity members.
Savage, who is a well-known LGBT activist, is currently working on a sitcom based on his life produced by ABC.
