Video: 'Overruled' film, overwrought martyrdom

by Jeremy Hooper

And now, yet another conservative, self-victimizing, ominously scored propaganda video meant to make progressives seem like the truly intolerant ones. And lo and behold, this one features the Parkers, one of the two out of hundreds of thousands of potential sets of Massachusetts parents that the far-right loves to haul out to "prove" same-sex marriage's supposed ill effects on that state and its public school curriculum (The Wirthlins being the other).

Video is cued to pertinent spot:


[Overruled Movie]

It should be noted that the book in question was actually Who's in a Family, which covers all kinds of different families, and not the mocked up, wholly gay-focused My Two Dads that's used in the video. "My Two Dads" was actually an '80s sitcom, and the only thing it indoctrinated into us '80s era gay boys were vivid Greg Evigan daydreams:

But hey, why should this propaganda video be honest about the book's title? Considering how aggressively they reject the lessons and lives made easier within, why would we expect them to treat the cover with any more respect?
