White Supremacist Praises NOM Spokesman David Tyree for Opposition to Same-Sex Marriage

A white supremacist named James Edwards is praising former New York Giant David Tyree for speaking out against same-sex marriage, reports Alvin McEwen at Pam's House Blend:

Edwards Says Edwards:

Even a blind hog finds an acorn every now and then. While I might not agree with David Tyree on anything else, on this single issue, he is absolutely right.

The Southern Poverty Law Center writes, about Edwards:

Edwards, 27, is the host of "The Political Cesspool," a shamelessly white nationalist radio talk show that's broadcast for two hours every weeknight from a studio near Memphis, Tenn., where Edwards grew up and still lives.

"The Political Cesspool" in the past two years has become the primary radio nexus of hate in America. Its sponsors include the CCC and the Institute for Historical Review, a leading Holocaust denial organization. Its guest roster for 2007 reads like a "Who's Who" of the radical racist right. CCC leader Gordon Lee Baum, Holocaust denier Mark Weber, Canadian white supremacist Paul Fromm, American Renaissance editor Jared Taylor, neo-Nazi activist April Gaede, anti-Semitic professor Kevin MacDonald, Stormfront webmaster Jamie Kelso and League of the South president Michael Hill have all been favorably interviewed on the "Political Cesspool" this year, along with former Klan leader and neo-Nazi David Duke, the show's most frequent celebrity racist guest, who has logged three appearances.

NOM's Maggie Gallagher and Brian Brown should be so proud of the support they've rounded up.

  1. Here's a tip: When your views start to coincide with those of white supremacists, maybe it's time we reevaluate those particular views.

  2. Funny post, but seems ad hominem. After all, there are gay white supremists in FAVOR of marriage equality (see: Ratbastard et al.)

  5. I guess it's alright to agree with a n*gger as long as it's shared hatred for f*gs and d*kes. Makes perfect sense.

  6. The black dude is hopefully happy now. His associations appear to be correct. I hope he is pleased with his next 15 minutes perhaps he should have paid attention in school!

  7. Homophobic Blacks will never get it.They are just like white racists.Its an inconvenient truth for them.After all "ignorance is bliss"

  8. Kevin, as if NOM are a bunch of racist assholes. Please. Isn't Mr Cain hanging around with the GOP leadership? How many of them love those black folk?

    The right wing Christians have always treated the black groups like crap and they always fall back to them cause of 'religion'.

    The sad thing about Afro Americans is that you would think they would use their brains and see who the enemies were/are but alas no.

    Ha. Ha.

    Furthermore, it was the gays that marched for black civil rights. It was the women that marched for black civil rights.

    It was NOT the white right wing Christians who marched for black civil rights, yet they have decided to side with them publicly in this issue, with only a few black people coming out in support of gay marriage but they are not canvassing any of their community.

    Just like Diaz's grand daughter. No balls.

  9. Re: David Tyree
    Wow, all this coming from a black man! How soon some people forget that not too long ago African Americans had to fight for equality and protection under the law too! Not to mention that not everyone in this country is a Christian… It always amazes me how Christians always want to push their agenda and beliefs off on the world… kind of the same way Christianity was spread by murdering millions of non-believer!
    I’m sure when the anti-segregation laws were being put into place there were many people who still believed that blacks should not have their freedom! There were also laws against blacks marrying whites…. I guess he is not educated enough to remember Loving v. Virginia, 388 U.S. 1 (1967), in a unanimous decision, declared Virginia's anti-miscegenation statute, the "Racial Integrity Act of 1924", unconstitutional, thereby overturning Pace v. Alabama (1883) and ending all race-based legal restrictions on marriage in the United States.
    Maybe he was too busy being arrested for drug possession or feeding his crack addiction to learn American history!
    What bothers me the most is the conservative prospective is always using “God” to justify their cause! If I’m not mistaken this is America and in the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. The First Amendment reads "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ...."
    In other words using religious beliefs is not admissible to denying millions of American equal rights! We are entitled to the same freedoms and rights as every other American! This is not The United Sates of Christianity, it’s The United States of America!!
    The 14th Amendment reads “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
    Marriage equality is about being equal and having the same rights many take for granted! It's not about religion... it's about doing what’s fair!! Besides, the Constitution of the United States of America forbids basing any laws on religious beliefs....
    If Tyree wants live in a religious based society that has dictators may I suggest the Middle East…?
    To me “God” is like a mirror everyone who looks into it see’s something different! There are many different religions in the world and yet Christians expect us all to believe their way is the only way… I respectfully disagree!
    If we allow our country to revoke our rights all based on a religious belief, then we are opening the door to another Hitler style society. Next they will want to start extinguishing the GLBT community!

  10. Strange bedfellows...so to speak. :)

  11. Tyree must be so proud. And won't his children be proud when they grow up in a world where gay marriages become no more or less controversial than mixed race marriages.

  12. Again, I hate repeating myself, but the historical record actually shows that those who are oppressed do become the oppresor (by and large) when civil rights and/or assimilation is achieved...for example, look up the relationship between Frederick Douglass and the Irish.

    So whi do people here expect black Americans to act so differently from what actually is a cultural norm?

  13. wow.. this is the epitome of the saying... "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." This white supremacist takes the side of a black man against gays? Gay really IS the new black!

  14. Well, sounds like David Tyree is getting a little of the you reap what you sow treatment. I hope the insulting pseudo-praise as a "blind hog" gives him a least a moment's pause.

  15. This is the funniest, most wonderful thing I have read all day. I'm just speechless. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Take THAT Hasselbeck!!

  16. @Chitown Kev

    That's interesting, I'll have to research this particular social phenomenon. If what you say is accurate then gay people may one day find another group to oppress.

    Posted by: Davey | Jun 22, 2011 6:13:26 PM

  17. Chitown Kev, that's a great perspective that I hadn't considered (and awesome ammunition for future conversations!). Many people know something about the white-on-white racism that existed historically between various ethnic Europeans; Italians vs. Irish vs. Polish, etc.

    Then they more or less coalesced as one "white" identity (though still maintaining their individual ethnic pride as well).

    In South Boston there was a lot of violent backlash when the government decided to bus students to school for the purposes of desegregation. A lot of it was Irish racism (against blacks)--when, interestingly, it was the Irish who were dealing with anti-Irish racism just a few decades prior! So what you say matches the history I have learned--but I hadn't put it together the way you explained it!

  18. Congratulations NOM!

  19. @Redball

    Now I'm not suggesting that black people (or whatever the group) shouldn't "know better" than to perpetuate discrimination against others.

    The problem with white gays, it seems, is that the "those people should know better" has become the operating premise which fuels racist backlashes that we read sooooooo much of here at Towleroad.

    There is no basis in fact that "they should know better" should be or actually is the operative premise for any minority group.

    More often than not, you have 2 groups competing for resources.

    We've already cited black/gay relations and black/Irish relations but...I suppose that we can include the countries that composed the former Yugoslavia and perhaps the mose viasible and well known example is the Israelis and the Palestinians.

    Posted by: Chitown Kev | Jun 23, 2011 3:08:22 PM

  20. Chitown, I agree 100%!

    Although all discrimination is the same, it somehow feels justifiable to any one group when they perpetrate it against another. A sad curiosity of the human condition & one we will hopefully eradicate (or get close!) one day.

  21. The prediction was anarchy…so said former NY Giants Superbowl star David Tyree. He was talking about the results of the hotly contested gay marriage bill which just passed in New York, granting the right to gays the nation over to…God forbid…tie the knot. Just what could he mean by anarchy? Could he mean the national rush of drag queens to Kleinfeld Bridal of television reality fame—to ‘say yes to the dress’? Did he mean that traditional brides would have to plan that much further in advance as all the good ballrooms of Manhattan will be scooped by the double income no kids, DINKs, flush with cash and desire to out do the last do? Or is it something simpler, like public displays of affection springing up everywhere—hand holding, kisses goodbye? I dare ask, has Tyree ever walked through Chelsea? If it means anarchy…bring it on. The last time I understood true anarchy was during the LA Riots where people of Tyree’s own ethnicity took to the streets to burn what they could to…I guess…make a point and scare a nation. Fear not Tyree, gays are scared of fire—too much product in our hair makes us more combustible than the average straight guy. There will be no burnings in the streets.
