AIDS Action Committee &/or Ch. 7: Spreading Lies About MassResistance

Outright lies: Boston’s Ch. 7 WHDH-TV ran a story Wednesday (6-7-06) on the Macy’s “Gay Pride” window display, and MassResistance’s success in getting the “trans” mannequins removed.

(Watch the video of the news story.)

The Ch. 7 report included the expected name-calling by Mayor Menino. But worse was the libelous statement by Rebecca Haag, Executive Director of AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts! (Remember, AIDS Action Committee is publisher of the Little Black Book. Not exactly an exercise in truth-telling.)

Haag said: “These are the same people who go to soldiers’ funerals and protest because they believe that gays are in the military. These are not nice people.”

[Just before this, Haag said:] “They talked about the breasts looked enlarged. Those are ‘pecs’. Maybe they haven’t been to the gym. That’s what men do when they lift weights. So they’re trying to make things up. They’re trying to create controversy that doesn’t exist.”
