Big shocker—MN For Marriage claims Hitler comparison was 'out of context'

by Jeremy Hooper

For the second time in as many days, a state marriage campaign shoots the messenger rather than take full responsibility for the rabidly offensive slight:

Minneapolis News and Weather KMSP FOX 9

This is horse dung! Everyone who knows Brad Brandon knows how he engages. I started telling people about it in 2010—audio that my friends at ThinkProgress put into a handy Youtube video:

Minnesota for Marriage staffers have made several appearances on Brandon's now-defunct radio show. They have paid him thousands to do church outreach. But now, rather than take responsibility for what they've been recruiting, they are offending all Minnesotans by claiming something fishy is going on with those who brought this harsh vision to light.

Those of us who fight the all-too-reliable extremism are very used to this. Doesn't make it any less offensive.
