NOM's Anti-Defamation Spokesperson Calls Obama a Terrorist


Who's the defamer?

Jeremy Hooper points out a recent statement from NOM anti-defamation spokesperson Damian Goddard:

"You live in the freest country ever known to mankind.  As the anthem states, America is the land of the free but freedom comes with bravery, not running and hiding.   Your job is to stay.  And fight.  For the battle is still ongoing.

You leave, the terrorists win.  And heck, isn’t that what the Terrorist-in-Chief wants, anyway?"

GOProud Co-Founder Jimmy LaSalvia Suddenly Thinks Gay Marriage is an Important Republican Issue: VIDEO


GOProud co-founder Jimmy LaSalvia, who has called same-sex marriage a "distraction" issue while trumpeting his group's allegiance to Mitt Romney, suddenly thinks it's a Republican issue.

Said LaSalvia to the WSJ in a post-election interview about marriage:

“Singer Kelly Clarkson, a single woman who was asked while she was on her tour who she was voting for. She said well I'm a Republican at heart but I'll probably vote for Obama because I have a lot of gay friends. And so I think that [marriage equality] is an issue that everyone is considering. And especially because everyone has gay friends and family."

Meet the Chick-fil-A Superfans Who Fly to Restaurant Openings: VIDEO


More than 100 people camped overnight in Walnut Creek, California for the opening of a Chick-fil-A, including one superfan (below) who said it was the 27th time she'd traveled to the opening of a hate chikin shop.

Watch the insanity, AFTER THE JUMP...

Meanwhile, a small group of protesters showed up to try and counteract the mania:

Brent Allen already had a line out the door - more than 100 people camped overnight in a parking lot in Walnut Creek for his chicken sandwiches - so he just had to wonder how many protesters would show up Thursday.

Allen, the owner-operator of the first Chick-fil-A in the central Bay Area, was greeted by about a dozen sidewalk protesters who were angered by the fast-food chain CEO's opposition to same-sex marriage.

"I don't feel like they're here for me," said Allen, who delivered boxes of bottled water to picketers. "My sole goal is to run a business and serve delicious food. I'm here to treat and serve everyone with dignity and respect."

Stephen Colbert Grills Rachel Maddow About The Election and Her 'Conservative Dream-Killing Machine': VIDEO


Stephen Colbert asks Rachel Maddow why FOX News seemed more freaked out by Obama's win than MSNBC seemed elated.

Says Maddow: "I think the difference between the two sides is that the Right talked themselves into the idea that it was going to be a Romney landslide based on - I don't know. Gut. Feelings. Karl Rove was saying, 'Yes I see the polls but I also see the enthusiastic crowds and based on the enthusiastic crowds I'm sure that Romney is going to win.' Turned out it was a bad way to predict the election."

The two hosts also discuss the relationship between gay people and hurricanes.
