As TRMS blog overlord Laura Conaway says, no one ever scrubs the internet well. Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) is no exception.
Next month the governor is hosting a stadium prayer rally. He’s invited his fellow 49 governors from all over the country to pray and fast and so far only one has accepted. But it’s Gov. Perry’s endorsers who’ve really piqued our interest. As People for the American Way’s Right Wing Watch has extensively reported, the list of endorsers reads like a Who’s Who of grainy You Tube stars out to make a buck and get attention for saying things so kooky a honey badger doing Madlibs would make more coherent arguments.
It used to be that the event webpage had a prominent link to the list of endorsers at the top of the page. Last night that changed (Right Wing Watched noticed on Monday). The “endorsers” link in the menu went away. Unless you speak Spanish. The Spanish language version still has the endosantes right up there at the top. We asked The Response for comment and here is what their representative Eric Bearse said:
Sponsors are still on the English website under the FAQ link. So, they haven’t been removed from either site. It is not unusual for content to be moved as a site is updated with new information.
He’s correct. If you click in FAQs and scroll down, way down past the information about where the event is, how to get there, where to park, whether or not there will be designated areas for bus parking, where to stay, how much it costs, the availability of Spanish translation, handicapped access, interpreters for the deaf, bringing a group, what the Response believes in, why it’s happening and why a person should go.. after all that you get to a link about who else supports the event. Dios mio!
