Sources state that William G. “Jerry” Boykin was the United States Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence under President George W. Bush from 2002 to 2007 and is a conservative Christian political activist.
He is currently executive vice president at the Family Research Council.
During his 36-year career in the U.S. Army, he spent 13 years in the Delta Force, including two years as its commander, and was involved in numerous high-profile missions, including the 1980 Iran hostage rescue attempt and the Black Hawk Down incident in Mogadishu, Somalia.
The Family Research Council was designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2010.
Recently, Boykin said “Thank God For ISIS” for bringing attention to the “Destruction Of The Military,” and he claimed the military will “never get out of” the Middle East.
Wikipedia states: “Anthony Richard ‘Tony’ Perkins (born March 20, 1963) is president of the Family Research Council, a conservative public policy and lobbying organization based in Washington, D.C. Perkins was previously a police officer and television reporter, served two terms as a Republican member of the Louisiana House of Representatives and unsuccessfully ran for the U.S. Senate in 2002.”
According to Right Wing Watch: “Last week, the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins appeared on the ‘Point Of View’ radio program to discuss his participation in the marriage conference hosted by the Vatican in November, saying that the event has convinced him that the Religious Right will win the fight against gay marriage in America because ‘we’re on the side of the one who wrote history.'”
The Southern Poverty Law Center listed the Family Research Council as an anti-gay hate group in 2010, and Perkins is a frequently-booked anti-gay marriage and anti-LGBT pundit.
