WorldNetDaily publisher Joe Farah was stopped at the Dulles airport in D.C. for carrying a loaded gun. He explained he carries one always because he’s afraid of murderous gay activists, as he posted on his site:

I am licensed to carry a loaded firearm in multiple states and carry a concealed weapon virtually all of the time. I get death threats against me. Let me tell you about that. Aug. 15, 2012, a gunman attempting to enter Family Research Council’s Washington, D.C., headquarters shot a security guard, 46-year-old Leonardo Johnson, in the left arm. While injured, Johnson assisted others who wrestled the gunman to the ground until police arrived and placed the gunman under arrest.

During his FBI interview, the gunman, Floyd Corkins was asked how he chose his target. His response was “Southern Poverty Law, lists … uh … anti-gay groups. I found them online.” [snip] You might note who broke the story that Joseph Farah was detained at Dulles Airport Sunday for carrying a handgun – the Southern Poverty Law Center. You might also note the Southern Poverty Law Center has repeatedly labeled my news organization a hate group – with even worse descriptions of me personally.

I have many friends at the Family Research Council. I knew that August day that it could just as easily have been my office that was attacked. Again, I’m not making any excuses about my dumb mistake last Sunday. What I did was dumber than dumb. But I thought you deserved to know the rest of the story, as my inspiration Paul Harvey would say.

    Odds are very high that Joseph Farah is a self-loathing gay man, who thinks constantly about his homosexuality

    This will be the next main “Open Carry” push by the NRA — American citizens bringing loaded guns onto commercial airliners.

    These right-wing nut jobs just keep getting stranger all the time.

      Like the handle. Mine was inspired by Herman Cain.

    And the Family Research Council is so …”friendly”

    He’s afraid of gay activists? What are they going to do, take him to a stylist for a decent haircut?

    Don’t worry Joe, that mustache will repel them.

      Is that ‘stash’ even real?

        Looks worse then George Will’s toupee.

    Vigilance against the Godless sodomites. That’s the key. It’s either Chick-fil-A, or the everlasting fires of hell.

    WND birthers agree this is the tip of their melted iceberg of denial “What I did was dumber than dumb.”
