Media Matter’s is targeting Ken Blackwell, an NRA official, claiming he blamed the UCSB murders on gay marriage.
Blackwell said on Family Research Council’s radio show:
When you see there's a crumbling of the moral foundation of the country, you see the attack on the -- on natural marriage and the family that has been a part of the, not only the moral foundation and the upbringing of our children but the teaching of sexual roles and the development of human sexuality in our culture. When these fundamental institutions are attacked and destroyed and weakened and abandoned, you get what we are now seeing and that is a flood of these disturbed people in our society that are causing great, great pain. And as opposed to dealing with the foundational problems, we look for ways of blaming the Second Amendment, or blaming knives or blaming cars when they are used. At the end of the day, you have just underscored the problem. This is a convenient way of avoiding talking about what's at the root cause.
Blackwell never mentions same-sex marriage. Not once. His discussion with the radio host revolves around the generalized breakdown and destruction of sexual values. Blackwell’s main point is with the hyper-sexualized, porn-obsessed society that we live in, Elliot Rodger’s perception of what a relationship between a man and a woman comes from the “development of human sexuality in our culture.” Media Matters absurd stretch is just that. An absurd stretch to try and spin the words of someone they do not agree with so as to fit the narrative of the left-leaning organization.
