In Wake of NOM Leak, Maggie Gallagher Accused of Having Blood on Her Hands
Two days after confidential strategy documents from the National Organization for Marriage were unsealed by the state of Maine and then leaked, NOM big bad Maggie Gallagher is being accused of having blood on her hands.
Waking Up Now writes a brutal takedown of the lying, duplicitous Gallagher that is officially UB required reading.
Do I have blood on my hands?
To no one’s surprise, her answer was No. But now, with the release of NOM’s confidential 2009 report to its Board, we can firmly tell her:
Yes, Maggie, you do have blood on your hands.
One bit of NOM’s strategy is getting special attention. In a section called, “Not a Civil Rights Project,” the document states:
The strategic goal of this project is to drive a wedge between gays and blacks…Fanning the hostility raised in the wake of Prop 8 is key to raising the costs of pushing gay marriage to its advocates and persuading the movement’s allies that advocates are unacceptably overreaching on this issue.
You read that right: NOM, while publicly calling for a civil dialog on marriage, privately pinned its hopes on fanning hostility between gays and blacks. Does that make you angry? Never mind; stupid question; of course it does. But don’t forget this:
Gays and blacks are not separate groups.
They overlap. And not just within society, but within families as well. NOM has committed up to $5,000,000 to fanning hostility not just between gay and black constituencies, gay and black neighborhoods, or gay and black churches, but between straight black parents and their young gay teens.
Please go on an read the entire post at Waking Up Now. NOM’s strategy of fanning hostility between blacks and gays is (correctly) identified as devaluing black, gay teens as collateral damage in the organizations fight to end marriage equality.
NOM is absolutely willing to let a few black kids die in order to get what they want, and they should be held accountable for that.
Seriously though, why are you still reading what I’ve written here? GO.
