Step 1: Enter nationalorganizationformarriage.com into your browser. (*UPDATE: The link is technically SFW, but it may not be something you want on your work computer. Proceed with caution)
Step 2: Enjoy a shocked, "oh no you didn't!"-like gasp-laugh combo
I hope I am not on a "watch list" now ;)

Eh ... uh ... wha'?!
I'm not sure whether I'm shocked or thrilled.

I don't know what to say.

WTF?!?!? Why did the KKK hijack their site? Aren't they on the same side?

Greg: I did nothing more than catch wind of it, thanks to comments in a NOM post from yesterday.

I honestly don't know how this was pulled off. To redirect a url to this site, one has to have access to my DNS record. I'm not sure how one could do so without working with the KKK's site.

Yikes. Wish I hadn't done that at work. Whoops!
Posted by: Garet | Jun 9, 2009 9:09:37 AM
This is real?
Not that I would be surprised, but are they really that stupid?
Posted by: Annie | Jun 9, 2009 9:31:30 AM
Oh, look! They sell t-shirts!

Yeah I did this at work to. Now I feel I have to hide my pop up book of Mein Kampf as well...

Jeremy owes me a keyboard.

Yea, sorry, it was a little careless of me to not give a work warning. I just added one.

Blocked at work for "Violence/Hate/Racism".
Seems about right.

NOM have a .org site, and have had since 2007. This .com site has been newly registered by Trent Studios (whoever they are).
They don't need any agreement with the KKK. They simply output a HTTP header redirecting your browser to the KKK site.
Posted by: Timothy (TRiG) | Jun 9, 2009 11:06:15 AM
Thanks for the tech note, TRIG.
Posted by: G-A-Y | Jun 9, 2009 11:13:24 AM
Interesting that the .com was registered right after the election (November 8)...

I went ahead and clicked on to the main site, and it features an article citing Janet Porter on how a Gay Marriage Bill would protect paraphilias. I'm guessing this KKK site does pay attention to the NOM site...

This made my morning a little bit better.
Posted by: Alle | Jun 9, 2009 1:09:27 PM
Oh good find...now to go share around. Poor Jon... yep better remember warnings next time.
Posted by: LOrion | Jun 9, 2009 1:37:48 PM
O.o; Oh my. This is awkward. Did... Did the KKK really do this? Or was it some one whom really hates NOM?
Posted by: Clicky the Fox | Jun 9, 2009 4:35:32 PM
someone who really hates NOM? Well, that sure narrows it down.
But wow. I so was NOT expecting that.
Posted by: Bill S | Jun 9, 2009 7:35:03 PM
(wagging finger disapprovingly) And shame of you, Jeremy. You a very naughty boy. :)
Posted by: Bill S | Jun 9, 2009 7:36:56 PM
e-maill me anytime you have any good news on morals,ethics and "extreme right wing" news.Thanks a fellow extreme right wing follower.
Posted by: Jack | Jun 11, 2009 3:16:57 PM
It looks to me like the domain name has simply been redirected to a different website. NOM regular site is www.nationalorganizationformarriage.org it's not .com a gay guy owns that domain name. (wink)
