Rachel Maddow Blasts NOM's Collaboration with Russia on Anti-Gay Laws: VIDEO


Rachel Maddow last night launched into a condemnation of Russia's anti-gay adoption laws, and the country's next plan: to take children away from gay parents.

Maddow then looks at the anti-gay American activists that are throwing their full approval behind what Russia is doing - wingnuts like Bob Van Der Plaats, Bryan Fischer, and, more specifically, NOM's Brian Brown, who, as Towleroad has reported, traveled to Russia to collaborate with lawmakers there in support of the anti-gay laws.

Brown has been accused of violating the U.S. Logan Act by making this trip.

Maddow then makes note of Brown's scheduled speech today at the Values Voter Summit, and the top-level Republicans that are offering their blessing to this anti-gay collaborator.

  1. In all seriousness people - if we don't boycott the Russian Olympics then we are abetting Russia's anti-gay stance. We are cutting our own throats by NOT boycotting every sponsor, athlete and Russia itself if we turn our heads and pretend "it's okay if we watch the Olympics, after all, they are the Olympics and the Olympics are a tradition. We are idiots if we don't boycott the Russian Olympics.

    It can't be made any clearer then that.

  2. With all the conservative panic about Communism, you'd think these people would hesitate involving themselves in any type of politics with "evil empires" like Russia. But instead, hatred wins out, and the haters all flock together. All of a sudden, Russia isn't such a threat to democracy anymore.

  6. Well, this gives you an idea why Russia is always such a hell hole.

  7. Boycott the Sochi games; prosecute Brian Brown. Bryan Fischer and any other Communist sympathizers under the Logan Act for aiding & abetting the enemy. Sixty years ago, these men would have had to face the virulent McCarthy House UnAmerican Affairs Committee for their actions. It's time for traitors to face the public and explain their actions!

  8. Want to support the athletes who have trained so hard to compete in the Winter Olympics?
    Want to send a message of support to the LGBT people of Russia?
    Not happy with Vladimir Putin's human rights abuses?

  9. If you want to hurt Russia, sell your Range Rover and buy a Prius. Russia's economy is almost 100% dependent on oil exports. You are all spending $1000s more on gas each year than on Russian Vodka. Let's focus our efforts on making a real difference.

  10. It's her network that's covering the Olympics, she needs to get to the execs to get a gig in Russia in February.
