SPLC-inspired shooter Floyd Lee Corkins sentenced to 25 years

If you don’t know who Floyd Lee Corkins is, that’s because he attempted a mass murder in service of a liberal agenda item. A little over a year ago, he walked into the lobby of the Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, DC. This is what happened next.

Here’s the Southern Poverty Law Center map that Corkins used to find the people he intended to kill, and whose corpses he intended to desecrate, because they disagree with him about gay marriage.


Despite the efforts of the SPLC, the media campaign against Chick-fil-A, and everybody else who contributed to the culture of hatred against opponents of gay marriage, Corkins is now going to prison. Associated Press:

The man who planned a mass shooting in the headquarters of the Family Research Council, a conservative lobbying group, was sentenced to 25 years in prison Thursday…

Corkins was carrying 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches during the August 2012 shooting. He said he planned to smear them in his victims’ faces as a political statement. Chick-fil-A was making headlines at the time because of its president’s opposition to gay marriage. The Family Research Council also opposes gay marriage.

“I forgive you, but I do not forget,” said Leo Johnson, the guard shot in the incident. “If you believe in God you should pray to Him everyday because not only did God save my life that day, He saved yours too.”

Leo Johnson is an American hero. And he’d be recognized as such, if he’d saved anybody else’s lives. But the FRC is unpopular with the cool kids, so who cares?

Let the SPLC keep lecturing us about “hatred.” We know who and what they are.
