After failing at almost everything she has tried since the late 1970’s, former orange juice queen turned homophobe Anita Bryant (pictured) is back. She is speaking at the anti-gay, “Reclaiming America for Christ” rally in Oklahoma City tonight.
The hate event will also include the husband of state Rep. Sally Kern (R). The ever-lying David Barton of Wallbuilders will be appearing. Barton is known for inventing quotes out of thin air and ascribing them to the Founding Fathers. How Christian….
Reclaiming America For Christ was started by D. James Kennedy and is traditionally held in the liberal city of Fort Lauderdale, FL. As the right wing is losing steam, they are retreating to strongholds, such as rural Oklahoma. Recent mega-events from right wing groups have turned out to be duds this year. It will be interesting to see how this free event in Oklahoma does in terms of attendance. If Bryant can’t draw a crowd in the most conservative part of the nation, the extreme right should be very concerned.
Here are examples of three anti-gay mega events this year where attendance fell flat.
1) The Awakening conference, (Lynchburg, Va)
2) “May Day 2010: A Cry To God For A Nation In Distress”, (Washington, DC)
3) Sarah Palin at Old Dominion
