Group has racism in its mouth.

The Concerned Women for America spend their time castigating Barbie for sowing "gender confusion" and pushing for things like half million dollar fines for CBS's brief display of Janet Jackson's nipple. Nipple nipple nipple.

On today's Christian News Wire is a press release urging CBS to pay a $550,000 fine, entitled: "CWA Says CBS has Dirt in Its Eyeball."

I'm assuming this is a clumsy wink to Luke 6:41, which (ironically) says: "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?"

Ironic, of course, because it's intended to promote introspection and to forestall self-righteousness. So I'll start the cycle myself and admit that I don't give to charity. Ever.

As for the CWA, their eyes are filled with enough planks to build a boardwalk -- watch the clip above from Michael Shea's Redstate the movie for starters.

The whole scene, only some of which is included the clip, is described by Amanda Marcotte:

Which brings me back to Gladys Gill, the head of the CWA in Mississippi, who Michael managed to provoke into carrying on about how she thinks the Civil Rights Act was the downfall of this country and how she’d like to return to the era of segregation. It’s the highlight of the movie, because it really drives home how racism is the linchpin of movement conservatism, no matter what bizarre lengths to go to deny this.
