With full page ads in the NY Times, the Pro-8 forces are trying to suppress free speech by trying to redefine legitimate, peaceful public protests as "mob rule". The Human Rights campaign takes it on at Demand the Truth. The FACT is that there have been only a few isolated incidents of violence against churches. But to say this is part of the movement is a blatant lie. So what else is new from these people? On the KPFA morning show, they did an interview with Seamus Hassan for the Pro-8 side, and our own Susan Russell for the No-on-8 side. Susan reports that pro-8 forces are now comparing gay rights activists to Al Qaeda and saying that any non-gay opponents of Prop 8 are violent radical secularists.
Go read Susan's blog for the transcript.
(Updated) This obviously a coordinated talking point for these guys--they were relentlessly on message for the campaign and now they are relentless on message equating free speech to terrorism. Read here a response to Pat Boone's recent interview, where Boone equated gay activists with the Mumbai bombers, calling us "sexual jihadists".
