NOM continues to play the victim: Road rage edition

by Jeremy Hooper

Late yesterday afternoon, Brian Brown posted this to the National Organization for Marriage's Twitter account:

The ow.ly link goes to this photo, presumably of the driver in question:

Okay, here's the thing: This writer drives (or usually rides while husband drives) along New York state highways all the time. The two of us drive in the city, we drive upstate, we drive to Long Island. Here, there, and everywhere that our gay agenda takes us. And after all of this driving, I have learned one concrete truth: New York drivers can be a**holes! Seriously.

We've swerved, we've swooped. We've near-missed, we've near-screamed. We've been middle-fingered, we've gotten the "I'm driving here" only-in-New York hands. And, admittedly, we've given it all back in return. That's New York driving for ya: if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.

So for NOM president Brian Brown to now take this situation and automatically, with NO EVIDENCE, paint it as an act of intolerance? That is COMPLETELY out of line! Completely.

I mean for the love of stock photo, the driver might have just been blinded by all of the carefully selected models they've used to represent actual traditional marriage supporters! Or it could have been a simple act of road rage. Or the NOM RV, being of a size as large as NOM's marital arrogance, might have made been the one to make a dumb move. We just don't know. But the more important reality: Neither does NOM!

*Oh, and this isn't the only RV-based victimization game NOM is playing. While parked in Atlantic City, NJ, NOM strategist and bus driver Louis "gays want pedophilia, polygamy, and prostitution" Marinelli, claims that someone slashed one of their stock-photo-collection-on-wheels' tires. So NOM is again, without ANY EVIDENCE, going ahead and claiming it to be an act of gay intolerance. And even more egregiously: They have turned the whole thing into a fundraising pitch!

Weird, they can always find the money to put our rights to referendum. But they can't buy a friggin' tire? Get outta here!

**UPDATE: This tire thing is a flat-out lie! On his own blog, Marinelli says that the tire was already covered by roadside assistance: Dear NOM followers: NOM wants $29 for a flat (-out lie in the name of God) [G-A-Y]
