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. Schubert's lack of discussion about the outcome in Iowa was instructive (the pro-gay judge was retained by 54%.) Nor did voters return Republicans to control of the statehouse so they could begin amending the state constitution to get rid of gay marriage, as conservatives had hoped would happen. Since some SSM supporters were opposed to the judges ruling (they wanted a voter referendum to give it legitimacy) the judge's 54% retention vote actually underestimates the number of Iowa voters who support same-sex marriage. What happened this past Tuesday effectively places Iowa, a midwestern, middle-0f-the-road state in the pro-equality column. That says more than SSM passing in 3 or 4 liberal states. As usual, the media misses the biggest story.

  2. @ Diogenes Arktos While Towleroad may want to censor "d" followed by "ick" due to its use as slang for a male sex organ, the censors should realize that "D" followed by "ick" often has a different meaning, including its use as the first name of a former but recent vice president of the U.S. Hint to towleroad (and others): when a word is capitalized mid sentence, chances are that it is a proper name. If you must censor the word, at least make it case sensitive - while some people use all upper case to "shout", someone on a rant is not likely to capitalize the first letter of a word simply to get by towleroad's filters.

    Some of the web-censorship policies of various sites are absolutely crazy - I once had a comment censored because of a word in a quote from an article that the web site had in fact published: they could say it, but you could not quote it.

  3. Little Kiwi and a few others should turn their gaydar the f*ck off. It just shows how they buy into silly stereotypes.

  4. We need to start rating these people...since they ALL look like closet cases, the only fun would be in comparing HOW MUCH they look like a closet case. I give Schubert 7 out of 10 airport restroom toe taps.

  5. @PAUL R: Thank you! Semantics mean everything. I think TW could have used a little better editing and/or proofreading on several stories today.

    What? OK, Andy, I'll sit down and shut up.
