On its blog, NOM is trumpeting the interview it conducted with Superbowl hero and former New York Giant David Tyree regarding his disagreement with marriage equality
NOM makes it a point to brag that the interview had been picked up by other media outlets including Politico and TMZ.
The only thing is that TMZ burns Tyree hard, by just letting him talk and demonstrating that the brother is simply clueless:
Ex-NY Giants receiver David Tyree — who made the LEGENDARY helmet catch in Super Bowl XLII — is coming out against gay marriage HARD … claiming it's the first step on the road to “ANARCHY.”
. . . During the interview, Tyree is asked about the push to legalize gay marriage in the United States — and says if it happens, “This will be the beginning of our country sliding toward … it's a strong word, but anarchy.”
To reinforce his point, Tyree says, “You can't teach something that you don't have … so two men will never be able to show a woman how to be a woman.”
And the kicker, Tyree — who's black — says, “How can marriage be marriage for thousands of years and now all the sudden because a minority, an influential minority, has a push or agenda … and totally reshapes something that was not founded in our country.”
FYI — Tyree's statement comes almost 44 years to the day after interracial marriage was legalized in the United States … thanks, in part, to the agenda of an influential minority.
I love TMZ.
Dear David, an old saying goes like “it's better to be thought of as a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.”
Take the hint.
