  1. does this mean they're going to start releasing ads that target the parents who are raising kids as single mothers or single fathers because their spouse was killed in Combat?

    because I'd like to know how this group feels about those horrible single parents who are raising a kid without a spouse who's been killed in war..

    or their thoughts on Bistol palin.

    after your husband gets blown to bits in Afghanistan, how soon SHOULD one remarry?

  2. I'd expect the FEC to shut down the superpac that posted the ad due to libel.

    For Immediate Release:

    GROUNDBREAKING GAY MARRIAGE FILM
    UNLEASHED DURING ELECTION
    Nation’s Most Controversial Filmmaker Releases
    Star-filled Movie as Battle for Equality Rages

    Now available on iTunes and DVD
    VOD on December 4, 2012

    New York: After a successful national theatrical release, Kenneth Del Vecchio’s AN AFFIRMATIVE ACT – the first-ever courtroom drama about the legalization of gay marriage – is now available on iTunes and DVD. This historic film, released by Screen Media Films and Universal, will be available on VOD beginning December 4, 2012.

    Starring multiple Academy Award and Emmy winners and nominees, AN AFFIRMATIVE ACT tackles the illegality of gay marriage head-on. In this thriller, a lesbian couple are arrested and prosecuted for fraudulently marrying as a “man and woman” in order to obtain equal benefits. Several states have same-sex marriage on their ballots this November, and Kenneth Del Vecchio – a Renaissance Man filmmaker/author/former judge who has brazenly produced one star-filled controversial film after another – created AN AFFIRMATIVE ACT as an effort to change the law. Leading LGBT publication Go Magazine wrote, “An Affirmative Act is a masterpiece of artistic commentary.” Echelon Magazine proclaimed the film, “A riveting courtroom drama guaranteed to inflame the passions of the masses.”

    This landmark film stars Charles Durning (2-time Academy Award, 4-time Golden Globe, 9-time Emmy winner & nominee), Blanche Baker (Emmy winner; Sixteen Candles), Costas Mandylor (Saw movies; The Pledge), Justin Deas (6-time Emmy winner), Randy Jones (Cowboy – “The Village People”), Robert Clohessy (“Boardwalk Empire”; “Oz”), Thomas G. Waites (And Justice For All; The Thing), Rachael Robbins (O.B.A.M. Nude), Jackie Martling (“The Howard Stern Show” ), and Eric Etebari (“Witchblade”; The Lincoln Lawyer).

  4. What kind of BS is this? Any mention of pride in one's family is an automatic endorsement of inequality? That's about as twisted as illogic can get. The anti-equality group may as well say, "No matter what you say, you support our position."

  5. Because "family" has become synonymous with "anti-gay"

  6. Michelle's gonna be pissed.

    Posted by: Steve | Oct 22, 2012 3:07:55 PM


  7. @steve Yeah I would not want to piss her off myself but hey cant wait to see what comes of this if anything.

  8. As a comment on "I'd expect the FEC to shut down the superpac that posted the ad due to libel.," that won't happen. It is not likely that they could run the bureaucratic process fast enough to shut anything down before the election, even if the FEC found some grounds to do that (libel BTW wouldn't count as it is the person who is libeled who has to complain, typically be filing a civil suit or sending a "nastygram" threatening a law suit).

  9. The hate side is very desperate. They keep using photos and twisting words of people who didn't ask to be associated with them. This ad should backfire on them.

  10. No, libel wouldn't apply here. They would have to make a statement about Mom-In-Chief that actually caused harm to her reputation. That didn't happen here.

    What DID happen is they took her comments and used them out of context to what she was talking about during that speach. If they are guilty of anything it is likely to be copyright violation, as I think all footage of the DNC Convention is owned by the DNC... I think, but don't quote me on that.
