NOM Fundraises Off George Takei PSA Mocking Anti-Gay Bigots: VIDEO


Last week I posted an amazing new PSA for 'Funny or Die' from George Takei warning of the dangerous individuals who oppose marriage equality. The video, which features Takei, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Brad Goreski.

BrownNOM's Brian Brown is freaking out about the video, telling his flock, "the producers of this video want your friends, family and the rest of society to believe" that you are a "sick, bigoted, ignorant, drunken, hypocritical, fill-in-the-blank."

Shrieks Brown, as he holds out his donation cup:

This video is unbridled hatred and bigotry towards people like you and me who believe in marriage. Some gay marriage activists clearly believe their own propaganda that gay marriage is inevitable, and now they are no longer attempting to hide their loathing and hatred of good people like you and me who simply believe marriage is the unique and special union of husband and wife.

If you are outraged as I am over this video please help counteract its desired effect by taking a stand for marriage by donating $35, $50, $100 or $500 to NOM today to support our efforts to protect marriage and good people like you who believe in marriage....We can't afford to let this kind of overt prejudice and bigotry against good people who believe in marriage become mainstream!

Unfortunately for Brown, according to polls, support for marriage equality is already mainstream.

Watch Takei's video again (and it deserves a second watch), AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Compared to George Takei's funny video, Brian Brown's money plea criticism comes across as petty grousing from a stuck in the mud crank.

  2. BB is getting mighty desperate - he's sees that gravy train coming to end - how will he support his litter of 8 kids?

  4. NOM can dish it out, but they can't take it.

    But they will take your donations. That says it all right there.

  5. Here's a quote posted on NOM's facebook page: "The sad thing is 7 of the 13 colonies (and 9 of the 16 states formed from them) have sold out to the deviants."

    It is not unusual to see gay people called all sorts of names by NOM followers, and apparently that is fine and dandy with Brian Brown.

  6. "...and now they are no longer attempting to hide their loathing and hatred of good people like you and me who simply believe marriage is the unique and special union of husband and wife."

    No, they don't "simply believe" it. They want to enshrine their beliefs into law and force other people to live by their beliefs. They can believe whatever they want, they just need to keep their beliefs out of my life and the lives of my family members and friends.

  7. Well, aren't they "sick,bigoted,ignorant, drunken, hypocritical fill-in-the-blank"s? Brown and his ilk use their "Christianity" as a shield to justify their bigotry and ignorance and their hatred of Marriage Equality. Perhaps, by following Christ's teachings,they would come to understand that the God they worship made me and all LGBTs in his image...and THEIRS!

  8. "...they are no longer attempting to hide their loathing and hatred of good people like you and me who simply believe marriage is the unique and special union of husband and wife."

    The problem is, the vast majority of people don't think there is anything unique and special about these marriages: Rush Limbaugh's marriage #4, Newt Gingrich's marriage #3 (2nd adulterous marriage), Kim Kardashian's 72-day marriage, Gov. Sanford's adulterous marriage, Donald Trump's marriage #3, and on and on. I mean, how unique and special can opposite-sex marriage actually be when almost 50% of them end in divorce?

  9. Great video. Go George!!

    The irony is that Brian Brown is incapable of seeing that every time he opens his mouth (and his grubby, greedy hand for donations), he only confirms that he and his followers are exactly what Brian Brown claims we are accusing them of being: vile, hateful, insidious, foul, homophobic bigots.

  10. "that you are a "sick, bigoted, ignorant, drunken, hypocritical, fill-in-the-blank."

    ALL true.

  11. "Tie the Knot" with a clip-on?!
    A Clip-on is not a Bow Tie: in fact, a Clip-on is to BowTies as Civil Union and Domestic Partnership are to Marriage Equality.
    Just sayin'...

  12. People used to think there was something "unique and special" about being white, too. Just like this situation, it stops being a "belief" when you institutionalize it and use it to harm the people you don't think are as special as you are.

    If straight marriage is so self-evidently superior, same-sex marriage will be a fad that fades away when it stops being trendy. If it isn't unique and special, but simply a reflection of equality and common humanity, it will thrive. You don't need to "protect" marriage. Let it play out.

    Unless Brian thinks he knows something about bisexuality, the closet, and the inherent attractive allure of same-sex relationships. But that would be projection on his part, not a valid assessment of reality.

  13. "whether the couple just met on a drunken chip to Vegas, a reality show," or they are just marrying for a Green Card. haha very funny...great way to make "pro-family" people sound ridiculous.

  15. May we just rewind to the colonial times for a moment? George Washington hired an openly gay man to train our troops. He even brought over the guy's lover over here so I really doubt our founding forefathers had this big issue with gay people.

    Posted by: Michael | May 13, 2013 5:17:21 PM


    And spend the effort protesting at catholic churches, the more important blockers of equality

  17. One look at that face rings the gaydar bell loud and clear, and I'm str8 but have many gay friends. He kinda looks like George rekers of fix the gays fame who couldn't even fix himself, except no mustache

  19. Here's the thing. If Brian Brown and his NOMbies choose to believe that same-sex marriages aren't equal to heterosexual marriages, that's actually fine. Just like I don't think Trump's, Gingrich's, Limbaugh's, or Hugh Hefner's marital contracts, performed in a church or not) with their latest humps are equal to some of the gay couples of long standing that I know. (In case my meaning is unclear those str8 marriages are lesser.) He's free to think that, and I in turn don't give a f*ck what Brian Brown thinks.

    But when Brown and his ilk try and limit LEGAL equality to a group of people, to codify their religious beliefs and biases into law, then that IS bigotry and they deserve the label. As the the punchline to the old joke goes, "If the Foo sh!ts, wear it."

  20. Yea, Brian? And how did you and people like you portray homosexuals and homosexuality for just as long as you could get away with it, you giant prick?

  21. Clip-on bowties are vile, insidious, foul, and homophobic.

  23. Yeah, so I am totally donating money to NOM now. Thanks for pointing out how loving and tolerant SSM supporters are, I appreciate it.
