O, here we go. Buckle the seatbelts:
Yep. You heard right. An official campaign spokesman at a Sacramento Yes on 8 rally just compared advocates of marriage equality to Adolf Hitler.
Yes, that Adolf Hitler.
Along the way he had the gall to quote Pastor Martin Niemöler.
Yes, that Pastor Niemöler.
And that’s not all. Baldfaced lies in the ads. Using video of other peoples’ kids, without permission, in other ads. Extortion-like tactics used on No on 8 corporate and business donors. And now this, from Kate Kendall and Geoff Kors:
Beginning last night and continuing this morning a coordinated cyber attack on the No on Prop 8 website prevented some donors from being able to contribute. This attack is being investigated by federal authorities. Fortunately, there was no breach in security and we are again able to accept contributions online.
As if that attack isn’t outrageous enough, at a recent Prop 8 rally an official campaign spokesman actually compared the right of same-sex couples to marry to the rise of Adolph Hitler and Nazi Germany.Watch the video.
This insanity needs to stop. Prop 8 needs to be defeated. It’s wrong. It’s unfair. The people supporting it are fanatical, intolerant, and willing to do and say anything to eliminate our rights. Period.
We cannot let them succeed.
Let’s do this once and for all. Help us reach our goal of $3 million by Friday.
Tony Perkins, national crusader in the effort to eliminate the right to marry, has said the battle to pass Prop 8 is more important than the presidential election. The result is that they have raised $4.5 million in the last two days and purchased another $2 million in advertising.
That’s how critical this fight is to the other side. That’s how much they care.
I believe you care more. So what more are you going to do?
I totally knew that cyberattack was happening. I tried to access the No on 8 site numerous times last night and came up blank. When I thought it was an attack, for a moment I wondered: “Is it paranoid of me to imagine that Yes on 8 zealots are behind this?”
The answer is, “No.”
Please forward this widely.
