NOM Anti-Defamation Spokesman Damian Goddard Goes After Vikings Punter Chris Kluwe: VIDEO


NOM anti-defamation spokesman Damian Goddard went after equality advocate and Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe in a recent video rant about same-sex marriage and pro football, calling Kluwe a "pose-in-a-gay-mag-shanking-20-yard-punts kicker, an idiot kicker who uses bully tactics in open letters to state delegates."

Kluwe isn't having it, responding to Goddard, a former sports tv host, on Twitter: "So @heydamo, I'm curious. Where is the logical backing for your arguments? All I see are a bunch of ad hominem attacks and fallacies...I'm also curious @heydamo, why you think that discrimination should be tolerated by people, especially those relying on freedom of religion...Also, @heydamo, for future reference, I'm a punter, not a kicker. I'd say do some research, but clearly that's beyond you...You can deny you're a bigot all you want, but when you discriminate against people, your actions speak for you."

  1. I don't know which is funnier - Kluwe's response or the fact that NOM has an "Anti-Defamation" spokesman... Love Chris Kluwe!

  3. Bravo Damian Goddard. Plain spoken and eloquent.

  4. Sounds like he's their defamation spokesman.

  5. These bigots just make it too easy for Chris Kluwe to embarrass them. Hilarious and excellent retort from Mr. Kluwe once again.

  6. Wrong man to go after. Kluwe is going to destroy him without any effort

  7. Goddard, NOM's newly appointed spokesbigot, is an embarrassment to my home country of Canada and to Catholics all over the world.

  8. Xomode, if that is your idea of eloquent, you might perhaps be in need of a new dictionary.

  9. Goddard's not very bright, is he? Most rational people know not to beat on a hornet's nest...

  10. XOMODE, perhaps you should troll somewhere else

  11. Damien was an on-air bigot and an embarrassment to Canadians. He was fired from reading sports scores on a cable sports channel. He's now working in the USA as NOM's attack dog. If we wants trouble somebody should report him to INS to see if he has a green card or working legally in the states.

  12. It's that "180 degree" politics thing that conservatives and bigots (is that redundant?) use. Place the blame on their opponents for exactly what they, themselves, do. Really? "Defamation Spokesman"? Does that mean, in NOM-speak, that NOM hires him to defame? Even Goddam's attempt to try to out-Kluwe's adjectival gymnastics is childish. Kluwe's force of attack and clear thinking communication skills are the perfect needle for that gas bag.

  13. "It's time to get your hands dirty" - "I am assuming a 3 point-stace"(An attack stance)-"It's time to smashmouth America... {figurativly speaking ofcourse}" {while laughing}.

    Seriously, this is just more violent retoric geared towards my community. It's interesting that the bigots in a room will vaporize if they actually have to get their hands dirty.

  14. "Anti-defamation" spokesperson? What the hell is that?

    Posted by: BETTY | Nov 27, 2012 4:47:26 PM

  15. This "spokesperson" used to work for a sports network and he doesn't even get Kluwe's position right?

  16. the awesome straight jocks will bring equal rights for gays for the win..accept it already!!

  17. Did you hear Goddard using the bible as his authority. Make no mistake about it. That primitive collection of myths, mostly made up bloody history and collection of contradictions is the enemy of human freedom and progress. Don't let even "nice" people get away with quoting the warm and fuzzy parts of the bible show them the vile, murderous and immoral parts. Show them where the god of the bible ordered death and destruction on innocent people.

  18. Yes, the awesome 'straight' jock will be useful.

  19. Looks like someone needs paid again. I wonder what the hourly rate for speaking out against gay people is?

  20. Mr. Crazy Eyes

  21. Hang in there punter Chris Klume, with enemies like Goddard you must know you are doing the right thing.

    Posted by: andrew | Nov 27, 2012 6:32:15 PM

  22. I am all for one man, one woman and one man as a bisexual Christian. God created us all gay and straight to love one another, gay or straight, get over it anti-gay Christians.

  23. That's it Mr. Kluwe kick him in the head, you are uniquely qualified (and encouraged) to do so. Anyway, being fried he'll soon be fired.

    And XOMODE..."eloquent" means you eat Goddard's b**t, right? Got it.

    Posted by: UFFDA | Nov 27, 2012 7:52:56 PM

  24. Maybe Chris can prove he is an "idiot kicker" by kicking that NOM idiot!

    Posted by: Bill | Nov 27, 2012 8:40:18 PM

  25. Calling Kluwe an idiot kicker? Too bad no one threw a flag at this dude and penalizing him for unsportsmanlike conduct.
