“Coach” Dave Daubenmire doesn’t think Christian right groups like the Family Research Council and the American Family Association go far enough. In fact, he says they don’t want to actually win the political battle against abortion and equality that they use to raise funds. Probably because they’re all lilly-livered and cowardly and that kinda thing.
After claiming that Democrats will never end abortion because the federal government gives hundreds of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood, which he falsely claimed then gets “recycled out” into Democratic campaign coffers, Daubenmire said that Republicans and groups like the Family Research Council and the American Family Association don’t really want to end abortion either.“I want people to understand this because I know this to be the truth,” he said. “Republicans raise hundreds of millions of dollars fighting against Planned Parenthood. All those pro-life Focus on the Family, the Family Research Council, I could just go on and on, the American Family Association, they raise hundreds of millions of dollars to end abortion and, Chuck, what do you suppose they do with that money? Yes, you’re right. They funnel it to pro-life representatives. So neither one of those people, neither group, Chuck, wants abortion to go away. The Democrats want it to stay because they can raise money on it and the Republicans want it to stay because they can raise money on it. I know that sounds callous, brother, but I’m just telling you that’s the way that game is played.”
But wait, Dave…you have a “ministry” and raise funds off those issues too, you just don’t raise as much as they do. So how do we know that you actually want to stop abortion? Because you say so? They say so too.
