A target

This man could not have made himself a better target if he'd painted a bulls-eye on his face and went to the shooting range.

Just read this article: Rage-filled Tennessee minister is LIVID wicked women are donating to Planned Parenthood in his name

He went on YouTube to rant and rave about someone donating to Planned Parenthood in his name—which he found out about because Planned Parenthood sent him a "thank you" card in the mail.

Many of us have been donating to various organizations in DJT's name or the VP's name or the Speaker's or Senate Majority Leader's name. But they have vast bureaucratic machines to deal with floods of mail like the cards that Planned Parenthood sends out, and by now I'm sure they all understand that such "revenge donations" are part of the whole 'being a politician' package.

This minister has no idea. And he has no bureaucracy in place to deal with it. And he has a freaking YouTube channel with which to tell the world about how apoplectic he is that liberals are doing this to him.

So . . . let's bury him! Why? Because doing so will encourage those who might otherwise be too scared or too discouraged to act. It will give them hope that something they can do will have an impact. After all, Minister Locke posted that ranting video after receiving only one card. ONE! And because he posted that video, a Daily Kos user found it and told one of their correspondents about it, who then wrote the above-linked article—thus informing thousands of other people that one person's action provoked such a response.

Here's the link to the Planned Parenthood closest to him: Planned Parenthood of Middle and East Tennessee. And here is his information, which anyone donating should put into the "Honoree" section of the donation form:

Greg Locke
c/o Global Vision Bible Church
2060 Old Lebanon Dirt Rd
Mt Juliet, TN 37122

Heck, for that matter, why stop at Planned Parenthood? I'm sure he'd be just as pissed off if he received letters from the Human Rights Campaign, the ACLU, or the National Organization for Women.

I think I have some charitable donations to make! Hee hee heee!

He probably wouldn't appreciate thank-yous for donations to NAACP or SPLC either....

Probably not, but I'd rather not assume that he's also a racist asshole. If we end up donating to a cause he either has no feelings about or actually supports, then the message gets muddled.

That being said, here are a few more organizations that advocate for women and the LGBTQ community that I'm sure he'll just hate: Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice, Center for Reproductive Rights, Equality Now, NARAL Pro-Choice America, National Women's Law Center, Transgender Law Center.

As you will...

It seems like all the bigotries and prejudices are pretty tight traveling companions these days; given a small town Tennessee that's 94% white, I know which way I'd bet on the question.

Also, if your primary intent is to piss him off/get cookies, that's fine. Me? I'm more focussed on getting money to where it will do good, and if there's a way to piss somebody off in the process that's a bonus.

My goal is to get him to continue blathering about it on YouTube—with the hope that seeing how frothing-at-the-mouth he is over it might inspire others to take similar actions.
