Non–New Yorker Brian Brown vows to never leave state to which he pays no taxes, has no ties

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2011-05-16 At 5.04.01 Pm Now listen in as a D.C. resident tells MSNBC.com how he will continue to publicly attack (for profit) certain New Yorker's loving unions, even though every single credible poll shows wide and unwavering in-state support:

Brian Brown, executive director of NOM, doesn't shy away from the fact his group is hoping to intimidate wavering lawmakers into opposing gay marriage.

“The message is clear, that supporting same-sex marriage is a losing issue, not a winning issue,” Brown told msnbc.com. “You could lose your career over supporting same-sex marriage.”

He also doesn't buy the argument that gay marriage is a settled issue in New York, even though a May 2012 poll by Quinnipac University found the state's voters support same-sex marriage 54 to 37 percent.

"If we don’t get a vote this year, we’re going to work to get one next year. We’re not going away," Brown said. "I think it’s just wishful thinking to say that once you have same-sex marriage the fight’s over. It’s not."

Just nasty. This man is collecting a paycheck off of telling certain kinds of taxpayers that their family will never know the easy peace of mind that comes with knowing your marriage is secure and telling politicians that they cannot continue on in their careers unless they cater to the militantly discriminatory NOM agenda. It's shockingly arrogant, appallingly insensitive, and dangerously misguided—an ignoble phrasing trio that could pretty much make up NOM's tag line circa 2012!
