Points for accuracy

You can say a few “choice” things about the anti-gay and lesbian group ‘The National Organization for Marriage” (and please do) but you cannot say they are subtle.  Yesterday, it was a handy-dandy memo plotting how to turn African-Americans against Gays and Lesbians in a “helter-skelter manner” Charles Manson might admire.

But, to quote Dan Savage, it gets better.

The have a plan for infiltrating the cultural zeitgeist to turn us all against the idea of same-sexual marriage:

We are looking for a new set of messengers,” one document declares. “Here’s the bottom line: Hollywood with its cultural biases is far bigger than we can hope to be. We recognize this.”

It goes on to note, “But we also recognize the opportunity — the disproportionate potential impact of proactively seeking to gather and connect a community of artists, athletes, writers, beauty queens and other glamorous noncognitive elites across national boundaries.”

So far their most famous “get” is Carrie Prejean. I’ll leave it to you to decide whether they got “elite”, “glamorous” or  “noncognitive” out of that acquisition.

Spotted Propaganda (1): Thursday, March 29, 2012 (includes Michael-Cavlan-isssue-related UPDATE)



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
