MN For Marriage spokesman caught comparing gays to Hitler (*just like he's done before)

by Jeremy Hooper

Regular G-A-Y readers will know the name Brad Brandon. He's the former radio host and paid Minnesota For Marriage consultant who has, on multiple occasions, compared "Satan-influenced" gays to alcoholics, pedophiles, and Hitler.

If Andy Parrish and his crew had just consulted me, I would've told them. But they didn't, so now they have egg on their face and animus in the public light:

MINNEAPOLIS — The campaign group trying to pass the constitutional gay marriage ban is apologizing after one of its officials told several small groups that supporters of gay marriage were using techniques similar to Adolf Hitler.

The thing is, a two second Google search would have told the campaign how, exactly, Brad Brandon engages. Audio of him saying unbelievably nasty things about gays comes up on the very first page of a Google search for his name (thanks to yours truly). And yet the campaign is now acting SURPRISED that he's comparing us to Hitler?! He's been saying that for years!

The other side loves to act like those of us who cover this stuff are just making it all up. They act like this until they are caught and called out. MN For Marriage is distancing the campaign from Brad Brandon because they have no choice. They got caught.

***REMINDER: Brad Brandon is also the radio host to whom MN For Marriage spokesperson Kalley Yanta admitted her views against "immoral actions" and about :not agreeing with the lifestyle":
