New media, NOM hardly knows ya

by Jeremy Hooper

The Family Research Council has announced that at this year's annual anti-gay parade, the Values Voters Summit, their "new media row" will be sponsored by NOM:

Because honesty, who knows more about new media than an organization that (a) created one of the most widely criticized, roundly mocked, deliberately fallacious, one star-rated online video in the brief history of the medium; (b) put together another ad wherein they failed on the spelling of their own pet issue; (c) epically failed at Facebook organizing,;(d) allowed their organizational domain name to go unpurchased so that others could do with it whatever they wish (which originally meant linking it to the KKK's page, though that has since been changed); and (e) who, despite their crazy amount of national PR, only have a relatively paltry 909 Twitter followers (a bulk of whom are actually pro-LGBT folks keeping tabs on their foe)?

When it comes to "new media," NOM would seem to be as avant garde as the abacus. But then again, when it comes to gay-centric "values," the Family Research Council's are as peace-loving as those of Anita Bryant's more intolerant cousin.

Your thoughts

Well, if they practice Bronze Age religion and medieval politics, of course the folks at NOM are going to look downright modern by comparison. :-)

Personally, I am *just fine* with NOM spreading their new media techniques to like-minded organizations.

They still have Caribou Barbie and (Dethroned/Defrocked/Sashless/Formerly Known as Miss California/All of the Above) Barbie listed as "invited" but noncommittal speakers. But, I didn't see Magaglagher, or her equally offensive protege Brian Brown on that mugshot (hall of shame) board.

"...avant garde as the abacus." I love it!

And you're right. Most people I see following @nomwtweets are just doing so for the ability to fire back replies whenever that corpulent hag Maggie Gallagher wanders too near a keyboard.
