Video: 'Where at least I [should] know I'm free [but some won't let that happen]

by Jeremy Hooper

This video was recently posted to the official website of Washingon's Reject R-71 campaign:

Let us repeat: Washington's OFFICIAL campaign to roll back domestic partnerships is using this video on their website. This comically amateur, completely unscientific, deeply offensive, kid/Lee Greenwood-exploiting video is what the organized campaign is using against us and our basic rights. The same campaign that has already used a '70s era Adam & Eve and a completely bullcrappy quote in past vids.

Our only question: Who is the pro-gay mole that managed to land a job as "Protect Marriage Washington's" head video guru?!

Your thoughts

Wow. That's just sad. But probably also effective on some people.

The outright lies ("[Scandinavia's] illegal drug rate increased 19 times" -- well, I'm not sure it's a lie per se because it's a nonsense statement), ignoring that lesbians have the lowest AIDS infection rate of any group (thus being God's chosen people), and the annoying reliance on built-in Windows Movie Maker effects is just plain pathetic.

Wow. I highly doubt that the copyright owner of the sound recording or the owner of the composition (i.e., the lyrics and music) has given permission for this to be used.

It is hard to tell which record label owns this particular sound recording, since the song has been recorded many times over the years. However, the owner of the composition would be represented by The Harry Fox Agency.

Just when you thought that the fake-statistics, and over the top hyperbole could not get any worse... well, I guess one should never expect, or even hope for that. Because when it comes to holy jihads, no lie is too big, and no bounds are ever going to constrain the unmitigated hatred and bile from the lying liars.

This video offends me. Not so much as a gay man but as an intelligent person. Wow! Where do we even begin to address whats wrong with this video? At least the anti-gay fucknuts in Maine TRY to make their ads APPEAR somewhat professional and research/reality based.

And on top of it all, it's also sexist. Did anyone else notice that 'ONE MAN' was in large letters, and 'one woman' was in small? Up yours, assholes.

Help is keep the pro-domestic partnership ads on the air!
