NOM's YouTube page: Roger Ebert could work two more lifetimes and not see so many thumbs-downs

by Jeremy Hooper

Louis Marinelli recently posted these revelations about the National Organization For Marriage's realization and efforts to combat their truly terrible YouTube reputation:

Last fall, after the Summer for Marriage Tour ended, the National Organization for Marriage started looking into ways to build a SWAT Team. The objective of this SWAT Team, which I’ve mentioned before, was to create the illusion of an active and motivated base of online activists supporting traditional marriage definition of marriage NOM supports.

For instance, when NOM uploads a video to YouTube, naturally they are upset to find that the YouTube community is largely against the content of their video. In an effort to strike back, NOM wants their secret team to login to give the videos a thumbs up and to comment in support. Not knowing that these positive comments were posted at the request of the organization, the average reader gets the impression that NOM has some support
.
It may be worthwhile looking into NOM’s ActRight project [LJM]

Unfortunately for NOM: Their stealth efforts are failing. Hard:

Consequently, we'd like to go on record right now and propose new legislation: Only voters who have a valid YouTube account are allowed to vote on marriage bans. We'll call it The Viral Video as Prerequisite for Virulent Ballot Initiatives Act of 2011.

Sen. Gillibrand? Rep. Polis? Anyone feel like carrying such a bill?
