Confidential NOM Files Unsealed, Reveal Vile Plan to Pit Blacks Against Gays
HRC has published confidential NOM documents detailing the sinister, race-baiting strategies behind the National Organization for Marriage’s fight against marriage equality.
The documents, unsealed yesterday during an ongoing investigation by the state of Maine into the illegal campaign finance practices of the group, reveal specific plans to pit blacks and gays against each other, and to craft anti-gay attitudes into a badge of Latino pride.
“The Latino vote in America is a key swing vote, and will be so even more so in the future, both because of demographic growth and inherent uncertainty: Will the process of assimilation to the dominant Anglo culture lead Hispanics to abandon traditional family values? We must interrupt this process of assimilation by making support for marriage a key badge of Latino identity – a symbol of resistance to inappropriate assimilation.”
Zack Ford has a top ten list of the highlights (lowlights?) in the leak over at Think Progress. Or you can read the documents in their entirety right here:
The leak of these confidential documents could not have come at a worse time for NOM. The group has been made the butt of jokes after their boycott effort against Starbucks has resulted in less than 20,000 pledges, while a counter effort in support of the Seattle-based coffee chain and outspoken marriage equality supporter has attracted hundreds of thousands of pledges.
In December of last year, it was also revealed that NOM is funded almost entirely by only two wealthy donors, widely presumed to be both the Catholic and Mormon Churches.
What do you think of NOM’s race-baiting business plans?
