The Values Voters Summit: An Introduction

The 2014 Values Voters Summit has come and gone, but its parade of controversial speakers will provide news and blog fodder for days to come. Right Wing Watch has posted exhaustive coverage of the summit, and Political Research Associates live-blogged the event as well.

Media Matters released a short video on some of the speakers at this year's Values Voters Summit. As you can see, many of them have histories of homophobic, sexist, and racist comments. (Hat tip to Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters.)

None of this is new, unfortunately. Republic of Gilead has posted commentary on the 2012 Values Voters Summit, which was a source of amusement and alarm.
