NOM’s Race Baiting Scandal Goes Viral – Brian Brown, NOM’s President Responds….. Sort of.

After last nights BOMBSHELL was revealed of The National Organizations “strategy” to fight same sex marriage by creating and using a racial wedge against the LGBT community was exposed the story has caught on like wildfire across the Internet and hopefully will be spreading to the national media shortly.

The National Organization For Marriage’s President Brian Brown released this (non) statement:

“The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) was formed in 2007 and has worked extensively with supporters of traditional marriage from every color, creed and background. We have worked with prominent African-American and Hispanic leaders, including Dr. Aveeda King, Bishop George McKinney of the COGIC Church, Bishop Harry Jackson and the New York State Senator Reverend Rubén Díaz Sr., all of whom share our concern about protecting marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Gay marriage advocates have attempted to portray same-sex marriage as a civil right, but the voices of these and many other leaders have provided powerful witness that this claim is patently false. Gay marriage is not a civil right, and we will continue to point this out in written materials such as those released in Maine. We proudly bring together people of different races, creeds and colors to fight for our most fundamental institution: marriage.” – NOM president Brian Brownshirt

But given the evidence in reality it should read:

We have given generous sums of money to prominent African-American and Hispanic leaders, including Dr. Aveeda King, Bishop George McKinney of the COGIC Church, Bishop Harry Jackson and the New York State Senator Reverend Rubén Díaz Sr.,  (And btw Brian he late Rev. Kings bigoted relative who is selling out and making money off his name is  Alveda…as in the cheese.)

For those of you who missed this bombshell and didn’t have a time to read the NOM Strategy Documents.  Heres a quick overview of what was included, on paper within them.

·Racial Politics
o  NOM’s admitted key goal is to “drive a wedge between gays and blacks.”
o  NOM aims to manipulate Hispanic communities by “making support for marriage a key badge of Latino identity” and “to make opposition to gay marriage an identity marker, a badge of youth rebellion to conformist assimilation to the bad side of ‘Anglo’ culture.”
 
·Facing a Losing Battle
o  They were 0 for 3 in their 2010 priority: “Roll back gay marriage in New Hampshire, Iowa, and D.C.” Marriage equality remains on the books in all three with the New Hampshire Republican legislature just last week rejecting a move to repeal their law.
 
·Huge Coffers Fund Phony “Research”
o  NOM outlined a plan to spend $100,000 on a “study of what schools are teaching in gay marriage/civil union regimes.”
o  $150,000 is earmarked for videotaping stories of those supposedly harmed by marriage equality called “The Face of the Victims” project.
o  $60,000 in salary earmarked for an “outreach coordinator to identify children of gay parents willing to speak on camera.”
o  $50,000 earmarked for “Expert Witness Project” that couldn’t cultivate a single credible witness to stand up in the Prop 8 trial for example.
 
·Painting Themselves as Victims
o  NOM pushes the false notion that Americans are under attack:“Gay marriage is the tip of the spear, the weapon that will be and is being used to marginalize and repress Christianity and the Church.”
o  Embracing marriage equality supposedly “affects economic performance, expands the regulatory and taxing powers of government, and threatens the family businesses that generate economic growth and prosperity.”
o  Despite every court to hear the issue finding no evidence of any harassment or intimidation, NOM continues to claim “gay marriage advocates have focused relentlessly on harassing and intimidating local donors.”
 
·Ignoring Campaign Finance Rules
o  NOM brags that “one key advantage we now have is the capacity to protect the identity of our donors.”
o  Worried about disclosure laws, NOM encourages donors to give to a slush fund for use around the country saying, “It is critical that we have a reserve fund to give to these efforts to ensure victory and protect donor identity.”
 
·Small Movement with a Big Voice
o  Recognizing that they are a fringe movement, they brag about having wide media exposure writing: “there is an opportunity for a small countercultural community to have a disproportionate cultural impact.”
 
·It’s Not Just About Marriage
o  NOM can no longer claim that they’re only focused on marriage. Their “American Principles Project” seeks to “Expose Obama as a social radical” by “develop[ing] side issues” like “pornography” and veering off into issues around the Guantanamo Prison and opposing administration appointments.
o  As part of their “cultural strategies” they suggest “raising the negatives on homosexuality.”
o  Their state affiliate in Rhode Island “hopes to introduce divorce reform legislation in an effort to strengthen Rhode Island’s marriage and families.”
 
·Taking their Movement Internationally
o  “The movement for gay marriage is global. The counterrevolution protecting marriage needs to have a similar international reach.”
 
NOM should never recover from this.  And we shouldn’t let them. 
 
We need to shout and pass the word of their evil bigotry and hate everywhere and to anyone because this is just the tip of the iceberg baby.  When the floodgates open and the rest of documents become available hopefully this will be the end of NOM, Maggie Gallagher, and Brian Brown once and for all.
