Brian Brown, President of National Organization for Marriage came on MSNBC this morning to talk about same-sex marriage in New Hampshire being set to be repealed. He is joined by Craig Stowell, co-chair of Stand Up For New Hampshire Families.
Brian is 100% confident about the outcome and says, “I expect we are going to have a majority here. It would be historic to have a state vote and have a majority vote to say ‘this was wrong, we made a tragic mistake 2 years ago and we are gonna right that wrong and I expect to see a victory today.”
But what really happened in the House Of Representatives… we all know now. The Bill was defeated and same-sex marriage remains legal in the Granite State. The Republican dominated house rubbed Brian’s face raw against the granite of the Granite State.
MSNBC rejected an ad about Tony Perkins, which shows how vile, hateful he and his Family Research Council is. Incidentally Tony had been invited 23 times on MSNBC just in the past year. Worth mentioning Family Research Council has been labled by Southern Poverty Law Centre as a hate group.
But here is what I figure why MSNBC refused to air the ad. The ad along with denouncing the bigoted and false claims of Perkins also criticizes MSNBC for giving him so much air-time. Which company in their right mind would publish something that paints them in a bad light?
If the organization had thought it out a little bit, they would have done the ad differently, by focusing and talking about just FRC and Perkins and not mention MSNBC (if their aim was to see that it airs on that perticular channel). Its like someone giving me a certificate which says I am a disgusting man and threat to the society and wants me to frame it and hang it in my living room.
When I saw Maggie Gallaghar, the first thing it reminded me was of a toad. Then when I heard her speak, it reminded me of a fable about a toad who lived in the bottom of a well for all its life and hence came to think that the well was the entire world. It didn’t and couldn’t comprehend a world beyond the high walls of it.
Like Brian Brown, who was called upon on FOX News ( watch it here) and bombarded with questions about his organization’s stance on same-sex marriage and made a fool of, Maggie went through a similar process but this time on MSNBC in “Up With Chris Hayes“. NOM’s entire foundation is built on lies and Maggie being the co-founder of National Organization for Marriage, its little surprising that all her arguments were false.
From denying advocating gay reparative therapy to trying to establish homosexuality as a pathological disfunction, her lies spread in every word that came out of her mouth.
But as I mentioned the similarity between her and that toad in the well, which goes beyond the physical likeness, is amazing. Add stupidity to that. By coming to these maga chanels time after time and making a fool of themselves, they are actually making it easy for the gay rights activists job to expose them, quite easy. Nothing can show their baseless, bigoted, hateful actions to the mass better than these talk shows which are watched by millions.
If they were smart enough, they would refuse to appear on tv. But their thirst for publicity is so great, they come again and again on national television and get ripped by the hosts. And as a result, what would have taken a lot of energy, hard work precious time and not to mention, man power (to make the mass see through the false vail of NOM) is made easy. And what can be better than when its done by themselves.
I hope they keep on coming and make an ass of themselves, in her case a toad of herself and we will be just fine.
