Tobias Wolff and Lou Dobbs Rip NOM's Maggie Gallagher on DOMA


Lou Dobbs hosted law professor Tobias Wolff and the National Organization for Marriage's Maggie Gallagher to discuss the Obama administration's recent brief that said it is obligated to defend DOMA but believes that it is discriminatory and should be repealed.

Gallagher demonstrates just why the wingnut talking points on same-sex marriage just aren't working anymore. Sane folks are finally demanding answers to that old right-wing chestnut that same-sex marriages somehow threaten heterosexual marriages.

  1. Right - lets be civil to a woman whose stated goal is to legally render gays & lesbians second class citizens.

    Though I do agree with the posters that say civil debate is the better and more effective means of expressing disagreement, particularly when you're trying to win over converts to your point of view.

    However, considering the present forum and its audience, I don't think that these message boards must necessarily be limited to such higher civil discord...

    Lighten up already - she's a terrible fat person.

  2. Ok, let me understand her position. If Gays are allowed marriage then all the straights will have a new reason to get divorced. Ok, so, does that mean that 90% of America is actually Gay and just waiting for a chance to switch teams?

    If so, I would like to put in my bids for LL Cool J, Rick Fox and McSteamy.

  3. What a sad, sad woman. Imagine having as your sole reason for waking in the morning be your vain attempts to keep equal rights from American citizens. That can't be good for your psyche.

  4. Actually isn't gluttony mentioned in the Bible? So yes, Maggie being a bloated neckless bag of discrimination is up for discussion, 'cause, y'know, she wants to stamp the Bible on the U.S. Code.

  6. She just sounds completely without logic .... maybe that is why people like her?

  7. I feel sorry for this woman. She sounded exhausted to me -- she is clearly on the losing side of history, and must be aware that she will be remembered for advocating hatred and fear.

    On the other hand, Tobias is a total hottie!

  8. She has no legal leg to stand on, just her (so-called) moral leg. She can't argue on facts, just the twisted/spun 'argument' she keeps repeating like a parrot. Unfortunately, that broken record spew is what gets through because people hear it over and over again.

  9. Lou Dobbs is a racist, xenophobic, hater who has made homophobic comments in the past. He has a radio show where he bashes immigrants, blacks and gays on a regular basis.

    He is no ally.

  10. I hope no one fell for this

  11. Wolff is worse than an apologist. He's a blamer. He said, the repeal of DOMA is being held up by Congress, not a flip flopping President. They got our votes and our money and have moved along to other things.

  12. And Maggie should realize that you "rebuild a marriage culture" by tightening up divorce laws, not by keeping others from enjoining in the institution you are trying to save. Why doesn't anyone bring up this point?

  13. Gallagher seems like a friendly person aside from the whole "OMG TEH GHEYZ!!!". But I'm laughing how she doesn't let them talk as well, she just keeps going...
