NOM President Brian Brown On Anti-Gay Activists: 'We Stand On The Right Side Of History' - VIDEO

BrianBrownNational Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown spoke at the sparsely-attended March for Marriage rally this week, and, not surprisingly, did a disservice to civil rights vernacular. Reappropriating one of the more beautifully simplistic phrases utilized by those fighting the good fight for equal rights, Brown stated that anti-gay activists "stand on the right side of history." 

Right Wing Watch reports:

"We know that some day," Brown proclaimed, "whether it's one year, ten years, twenty years, or decades from now, people will look back at this time and remember those of us who stood up for the truth."

The "truth" about what? Brown and other vehement anti-gay activists are simply cementing the fact that they are the most noble and honorable jerks of our time.

  1. Some day: after he went to heaven.
    Somewhere: the Vatican if it is still there. The canonization of Saint Brown.
    As for history, probably not. I mean REAL history. Too bad the Bible can't be re-written.

  3. Oh, but it IS being re-written: the Duck Dynasty guy is releasing the "Duck Commander Bible", didn't you know?

  5. It's no coincidence that George Wallace said the very same thing about Jim Crow and segregation; and five decades later? NOPE, we still remember them as bigots who were on the wrong side of history.

  6. The bible has been rewritten hundreds of times. Verses that weren't in the original (or as close to original as we can get) texts began appearing and proliferating over the centuries as scribes and clergy strove to make it clearer on certain points, or to make it read easier, and most are still in there.

  7. What this cements is the fact that people like Brian Brown aren't unaware of our side and what we are saying; he must be paying attention because he keeps appropriating our semantics and appropriating our syntax.

    People like this know exactly what they are doing. He knows he is wrong. They are so uncreative that they have to wait for pro-gay people to say inspiring things so they can lift them for their own anti-gay agenda.

  10. Raybob:
    Can't be re-written of course is the teaching of the "Mother Church", the one and only one Church which is the only "true" church, a direct descendant of "St Peter". That happens to be Saint Brian's church. Duck Dynasty kind of bible is heresy according to them. Of course that won't stop me from rewriting it myself because they can't burn me anymore.
    There were different versions of the Bible because there have been copies and recopies. That doesn't mean the Catholic Church will allow you to modify their "official history".

  11. The Catholic Church has never admitted that the Bible has ever been rewritten after they have pronounced what they had was the official history. The reason is very simple. They are supposed to be God's words. How can God made any mistake? Of course the reality was very different. Passages have been inserted or deleted by scribes and bishops. They are simply called pious frauds. All these things were swept under the carpet to avoid embarrassment.

    Posted by: simon | Jun 21, 2014 8:55:46 PM


  12. That's why the Catholic Church has never announced or will announce there will be a second edition of the Bible.

  13. Hey Joe...no not the "most noble and honorable jerks" but simply the most wrong-headed ones. So pathetic.

  14. Oh, Brian. Just come out already.

  15. Twenty years from now? Babe, in twenty years people will remember you as the weird homophobe who's now parked in a rest home, muttering about equality. Those kids aren't going to care at all.

  16. The real question, of course, is whether Brian Brown actually believes what he is spouting - there is a certain class of "sales types" who will spout anything shamelessly to push what they are paid to promote. So what's the scoop on Brian Brown?

    As an example, take the Nazi criminal J. Mengele - he kept records of all his letters and (after the war) those were sorted into two sets of boxes - one for the stuff useful in prosecuting him and the other for things like letters to his mother. The personal stuff was misplaced and didn't surface for several decades. Historically it is useful - aside from his gruesome medical "experiments", he was a notorious back-stabber and would spout what his bosses wanted to hear. As his world collapsed around him, he wrote a letter to his mom saying that they had always followed the highest ideas and made derogatory statements about various ethnic groups in those letters. That's an indication that he really believed it - even in Nazi Germany, it would have been acceptable in a letter to one's mother to simply ask about her health and other relatives. You couldn't trust anything he said in any official document regarding his actual beliefs as he was a liar and would say or do anything to get promoted.

  17. Oddly, it saddens me that these people are choosing to go down in history as spreaders of hate and fear. One would think they would have a more productive use for their time, like actually making the world a better place by helping the poor; aiding the sick or comforting the grieving. You know... like Jesus. Asshats hypocrites, every single one of them.

  18. I think what Brian Brown meant to say was: "We stand on the Far Right side of History."

    He has never really understood the difference between Right and Wrong.

  19. Pathetic - because futility combined with stupidity is unbearable to witness.

    Posted by: Heartboy | Jun 22, 2014 5:27:21 AM


  20. Awww... the faster they sink, the harder they struggle. I guess they need to say these things since nobody else is.

  21. This era will be remembered like the civil right's era of the 1960's and 1970's is remembered. There are those on the right side and those on the wrong side.

    There are also those who were very wrong but have repented, Such as the late Governor George Wallace of Alabama.

  22. Those against ending slavery, who were equally anti-gay, thought the same thing. Those against integration and voting right for blacks , who were equally anti-gay, though the same thing. Those against women's rights, who were equally anti-gay, thought the same thing. Those against interracial marriage, who were also equally anti-gay, thought the same thing. Those anti-freedom savages all thought that they were on the right side of history as the violated the constitutional rights of other Americans illegally interfering in and controlling the lives of other American against those American free will. History ha snot been kind to them and history will not me kind to blood thirsty Nazi savage Brian Brown who supports laws that legalize and/or encourage imprisonment and murder of LGBT human beings. He IS on the wrong side of history and will be remembered as such by all civilized human beings.

  23. My problem with the National Organization for Marriage is that it does nothing to ''protect'' the institution. The greatest threat to marriage isn't from gays (whose marriages probably count for such a teeny percentage); it's from the tons of straight couples who are divorcing. Why doesn't NOM address that? Because it only exists to ''prevent'' gays from marrying. Brown's a homophobic bigot, plain and simple, and we don't even know if he genuinely believes it, or is just in this for the paycheck.

  24. "History (from Greek ἱστορία, historia, meaning "inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation") is the study of the past, specifically how it relates to humans."

    i don't think history can have a 'right' or 'wrong' side. it's one of the few things that just "is"........

  25. Brian, you stand on the edge of a toliet and world just gave you a little push. Now everybody push down on the handle so that he will go back to where he came from.
