Anti-Gay Marriage Propagandist Frank Schubert Says Election Losses 'Don't Signal Any Shift At All' in Public Opinion

Frank Schubert, the advertising propagandiast and mastermind behind the Prop 8 ads and the ads in all four states that lost same-sex marriage measures this last election, suddenly thinks the losses have no significance:

Schubert"The activists in the homosexual movement are very aggressive trying to spin the election results as somehow signaling a big shift in public opinion on the issue of gay marriage, when in fact it doesn't signal any shift at all," he remarks.

Schubert goes on to explain that last Tuesday, traditional marriage lost in liberal states by a relatively small percentage -- even though its supporters were outspent considerably. He also told OneNewsNow that the poll should reassure traditional marriage proponents the movement is still very much alive.

He has to think that. His career depends on it.

Writes Jeremy Hooper:

Interesting, huh? In the run up to the election, Schubert & Co. told us that everything was riding on these state battles and the presidential contest. But now that the everything that they told us was at stake blew up in their faces, with American reelecting its first pro-equality President and defeating discrimination in four states, we are are suddenly told that the historic outcome was of no significance whatsoever. Isn't that convenient?

  1. What a collection of childish sore losers! The longer they are lost in their denial, the likelier their demise.

  2. If public opinion hasn't shifted, Frankie, does this mean you're really bad at your job?

  3. I agree with Schubert - no shift in public opinion. Its confirmation of the direction we all know public opinion has been moving in - more support for equality.

  4. Gayface. There. I said it.

    Look, I'm as tired as everyone else by claims of "oh, he hates gays therefore he's a closeted homosexual" but it's just so gallingly obvious.

    I don't know any comfortable and confident heterosexual males who are in any way threatened by not only gay people, but "open displays" of homosexual affection or sexuality.

    Whether it's men like my father and best straight friends who joyfully celebrate WITH US each year at pride, and in the parade, to my casual straight male acquaintances who always, without fail, ask how my romantic life is.

    They're not threatened by anything that they know is in no way a threat to them.

    whenever men like this plebe, or the Rick Santorums of the world, vent their nonsense all they're really saying is is "I got busted with a j/o buddy when i was a teen and i'm still trying to live it down"

    well, thanks for sharing, sugarpie.

    behind every anti-gay male is an insecurity about his own sexuality.
    behind every anti-gay woman is a sad housewife who hasn't had an orgasm.

  5. His gay sister should disown him.

  6. Excuse me but this propagandist Schubert is considered a "mastermind" yet spews drivel like this statement? Puh-lese, Ms. Thing (yep, look at THAT gay face), just whose bank account are you trying to pad in your state of homo (and home rights) denial stage (no, wait, I already know the answer)!

  7. As heartening as his position is Obama is a pro-equality individual, not President.

  8. Sorry to kvetch, but "states that lost same-sex marriage measures" isn't the clearest way of putting it. You could just as (likely more) clearly say "won."

    I agree with you, per usual, Kiwi. Those who protest too much usually have some bizarre issue. It seems like a stupid stereotype at times, but many stereotypes exist for a reason. Not all, obviously.

  9. He is an ultra-conservative Catholic nutbag, but a lot of his motivation is purely financial. He gets paid a lot of money and needs to keep his employers happy somehow

  10. Frank, Clearly you are trying to save your account which made you hundreds of thousands of dollars in personal income. As a business owner who hires ad agencies to market my product an 0 for 4 record equals me firing your ass.

  11. Let's hope they continue to behave this way! Let's hope they continue to spew out such nonsense and that the Republicans believe it! That will just be one more (big) nail in the coffin.

    Already many REPUBLICANS are saying that if the party doesn't change, it will go the route of The Whig Party. Let's hope they never change.

  13. So much poo comes out of these peoples' mouths I bet their ass gets jealous.

  14. The more I hear of the Republican/conservative attempts to spin this election, the more I see how quickly they forget recent history, especially their own words. Romney seems not to have been a loose canon after all - he has simply been a leader in the mass amnesia.

  15. Who cares what these obsessed-invaders-of-privacy think? Once we have the power of the SCOTUS on our side, home run. Their power and control over our autonomous lives shall be cauterized.

  16. You've hitched your wagon to a star, and it has become a black hole. Get a life, bozo.

  17. I'd love to hear what his lesbian sister has to say about all of this!!! What a horrible brother... I heard him being interviewed by Michelangelo Signorile. He came across as very smug and even had a small meltdown.. It is hard for me to imagine actually making a living by demonizing a group of people..including one's own sister!

  18. Yes, gayface. Let the crybabies cry, the American people have had their say and the bigots lost pretty much everything. Boo hoo hoo!

  19. Public opinion has changed at least in Maine as testified in the voting outcome. It is an undeniable fact.

  20. Such flailing desperation is always sad to see.

  21. I just tried to post a funny wisecrack about Schubert based on a W.C. Fields film. Unfortunately, towleroad automatically censored it, I suspect because the title of the movie I referred to used some 1930s slang for "detective" that consisted of a "D" followed by the letters, "ick".

    I'd suggest they fix their filters or at least tell people what the problem is before wiping out the text.

  22. @Bill: I have been trying to figure out TR's policies and have given up. That includes comments that have been deleted after being posted.

  23. The professional bigots are really delusional.

  24. and again, I even hate responding this nucklehead. The American voter has spoken! What can be clearer than the results of last Tuesday!!! The conservative movement is declining and will never climb its way back. denialll, delusionallllll

  25. He is using anti-gay propaganda by you posting this here, you know. He most likely learned how to use propaganda from the CIA or FBI or the Nazis who were good enough to get the German Catholics to kill millions of Jews and homosexuals. So when ever you see any anti-gay propaganda you now know where it is coming from, for that matter most of the anti-propaganda is coming from those people. Some of them also happen to be anti-gay Christians as well as CIA and FBI, etc..
