Their latest gaffe comes in the form of a "confidential" document circulated among NOM's "leadership" that became public through the State of Maine's investigation into the financial tactics of the group.
For all of their accusations of a "homosexual agenda", it seems that NOM has an agenda of their own.
1. "Drive a wedge between gays and blacks" in order to divide the Democratic party.
2. "Find, energize, and connect African American spokespeople for marriage."
3. "Develop a media campaign around their objections to gay marriage.
4. "Provoke the gay marriage base into responding by denouncing these spokesmen and women as bigots."
In addition, NOM says they are hoping to "recruit glamorous" but "non cognitive" celebrities in their attempt to thwart gay marriage.
Seems like a pretty specific agenda to this busy Queen! And a pretty stupid one, too!
Their first naive agenda item mistakes the whole thing as political, as they attempt to divide the Democratic party. If the issue were political, they may (and that's a big may) be able to change the minds of some blacks or gays by exaggerating specific issues. We all know, however, that is a fundamental rights issue, and it would be much harder, probably impossible, to change the hearts of people who have felt the pain and sting of discrimination their entire lives. That's a bond that NOM can't understand, so there's no way they could ever find a way to dissolve it.
As far as finding African American spokespeople to take up the cause against gay marriage, this is probably the only respectable tactic on their hate-filled agenda. I don't care what race, creed, or gender their spokespeople are, but if they think having black spokespeople will further their cause, more power to them.
For the third, any tactic that begins with the word "provoke" just smacks of sadness to Miss Ginger. Really, NOM? Your plan is to invite well-respected African American scholars to spew your spiel, then turn the media on them so they are called names by their own people? Niiiiiice!
And the final idea, to recruit "non cognitive celebrities" seemed so senseless to Miss G that she had to check her understanding of the language to make sure she was following the words correctly:
cognition |ˌkägˈniSHən|nounthe mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understandingthrough thought, experience, and the senses.• a result of this; a perception, sensation, notion, or intuition.
So, if my tiny little drag queen brain is interpreting this correctly, NOM wants to recruit celebrities who are too stupid and uninformed to understand what they are arguing for?
Oh, wait, they already have plenty of those!
