I kinda feel sorry for Brian Brown, of the National organization for Marriage [NOM]. I mean, there was that picture of him weeping openly after marriage equality became legal in one state or another, and he’s seen his little group lose battle after battle on the marriage issue, and battle after battle in courts regarding the secrecy of their donors list.
It’s hard to be NOM; which may explain why Brian brown has officially jumped the shark.
At CPAC last week Brown brought up two of the GOP’s favorite topics — gays and guns — and somehow managed to link them together in a Word Soup even the Mama Grizzly Bore™ couldn’t figure out.
He said that if Americans allow judges to find a right for same-sex couples to marry, they could also find a way to take away their guns.
Cue the choruses of ‘You’ll have to pry my gun from my cold dead hand!”
“We need to stand up against it because if they can do this on marriage, folks who are concerned about gun rights, taxes, anything, if we give the courts the power to rewrite our constitution at will, then we have lost our republican form of government and that’s something everyone should be standing up and saying ‘no we’re not going to accept this.’”
But the funniest thing about his lunacy is that he isn’t the first to try to link Taking-Away-Our-Guns with Same-Sex-Marriage. He got the idea from Louisiana’s wingnut Republican Governor and Bobby Jindal who said the same thing at a NOM event three years ago.
Funny, though, it didn’t happen after Jindal said it, and it won’t happen now. Brian Brown is desperate and wingnutted and asshatted and filled with WTFuckery, and will say anything to keep this fight going.
Here’s a tissue, Bri, wipe away the tears because you’re losing the battle ... and the war.
