NOM Continues to Play the Blacks Hate Gays Game
The National Organization for Marriage’s head hater Brian Brown continues to get his race-baiting jabs in where he can, as seen in this debate with the National Stonewall Democrats’ Executive Director (and Bilerico Project co-founder) Jerame Davis on the UK’s Channel 4 News.
“The people of this country know what marriage is, and they know that marriage is the union of a man and a woman. And I think that President Obama has now energized support for Mitt Romney and he has definitely hurt himself with African American voters, with blue collar Catholic democrats, who have been a key swing constituency since Reagan. So I think you’re going to see him lose this election, and part of the reason is how radical he’s turned.”
You have to squint your eyes pretty hard to ignore the fact that the Obama campaign has broken two fundraising records since announcing his support for same-sex marriage. The president raised over $1 Million in online donations in the 90 minutes following his announcement, and an additional $15 Million last night at a celebrity-studded dinner, the most ever from an event.
But by all means, do go ahead and take this straight, white man at his word when he tells you all about what African American voters are thinking on the issue of marriage equality.
Do YOU think African American voters will be more inclined to support marriage equality now that our president has endorsed the idea?
