Minnesota For Marriage's Comm guy pits liberals against July 4th

by Jeremy Hooper

I've been noting how hyper-partisan Andy Parrish, former Michelle Bachmann chief of staff and current Deputy Communications Director for the so-called Minnesota For Marriage campaign, tends to get on Twitter. But last night really took the cake—took the red, white, and blue cake right away from progressives who love their country too:

Not surprising to see Parrish's intense, "real American" partisanship, since all state marriage campaigns are basically GOP-commanded efforts (particularly in election years when Republicans use them to get out the vote). But seriously, this is how the people trying to change another state's most precious governing document so that is explicitly discriminates against same-sex couples spend their time on Independence Day? Essentially pitting liberals against love for their country is what comes to mind as a fun 4th activity? Really?

Fair enough, Andy Parrish. Just as long as anyone who is tired of this GOP war against LGBT equality celebrates election day by honoring true civil freedom—the kind that goes beyond fireworks and hot dogs and enters right into the homes of good and decent American taxpayers!
