NOM's deeply divisive race games: CONFIRMED, disturbingly

by Jeremy Hooper

Over the past three years, I've spilled much digital ink on the obvious and disturbing way that I, based on my own analysis, perceived the National Organization For Marriage to be working to deliberately divide Americans on the basis of race. Here are just some examples:

12/23/08:
United we could stand, but divided is what they've been working since fall

10/13/09:
Audio: 'Jayla'

10/16/09
Wait, Brian Brown: When did 'crucial roadblock' come to mean 'strong, supportive body of allies'?

12/14/09:
Maggie's school exploitations: Now with more race wars!!

2/12/10:
As the white adult put it…

9/22/10:
*WARNING: No civil rights legacies were ably examined in the making of this ad

10/13/10:
'I have a scheme': NOM still co-opting Martin Luther King's legacy

10/14/10:
NOM is not MLK: A 10 point examination

3/12/11:
NOM's race chatter is obvious and disturbing. In Maryland it hit a new high/low

3/18/11:
NOM dividing us as a people: Rhode Island Hispanic Church edition

7/26/11:
Video: Brian Brown addresses lies in Albany; was he looking into a teleprompter or a mirror?

1/25/12:
NJ: NOM again dividing Americans on basis of race

3/20/12:
Brian Brown on MLK: His 'most important civil right' was right to vote on Bayard Rustin's love life

Little did I know that all I'd really have to do is wait until March of 2012, when everything I have been saying would be confirmed to me in one deeply disturbing NOM document, part of the just-released confidential docs that were part of the Maine trial record. The crude race admission and much, much more can be found at NOM Exposed:

The strategic goal…is to drive a wedge between gays and blacks—two key Democratic constituencies. Find, equip, energize and connect African American spokespeople for marriage, develop a media campaign around their objections to gay marriage as a civil right; provoke the gay marriage base into responding by denouncing these spokesmen and women as bigots…
