March for Marriage 2: Electric Boogaloo

After last year’s March for Marriage was a massive failure (fewer people showed up than for the Reason Rally), the National Organization for Marriage is now planning March for Marriage 2: Electric Boogaloo for June 19. That’s a month after a few hundred wingnuts who think they’re 20 million strong are planning to remove Obama from office. And they need your money:

So, what can be done about it? Many things — but it all boils down to this: mobilize the American people to defend God’s truth about marriage and stand up to the radical extremists that want to redefine marriage, marginalize its supporters and stifle free speech and the democratic process!

That’s why NOM has decided to move forward with our second (and annual) March for Marriage. We must show that we will not be intimidated by the thought-police-bullies intent on silencing us so they can push their agenda down America’s throat!

We are in the midst of intense preparations for the March, taking place this June 19th. We are securing permits, organizing logistics, signing contracts, making arrangements with speakers…all of which constitute large up-front costs.

And that’s why we’re launching a campaign to raise $100,000 by the end of April to support this essential initiative.

Of course you are.

    So this is the second “annual” march? Sounds like NOM wants to create a counterpart to the “March for Life” every January. Good luck with that. Most people are not able to work up that much hatred for someone else getting married and most supporters of “God’s truth about marriage” understand that they will still be able to enter into that form of marriage regardless of the legal rights of those who don’t worship their version of “God.”

    Man, they really can’t stop with the ‘throat’ thing. Every damn time.

    Yeah, it’s the Thought Police who are the bad guys, trying to regulate what people think in the privacy of their own heads, amirite? The assholes who want the real police to smack down what real people do in the privacy of their own homes and their own personal relationships are just harmless little snowflakes.

    No, it really is “March for Marriage.” Just like “March for Muscular Dystrophy” or “Walk for Breast Cancer.”

    No, DC, they are against same-sex marriage, so no matter how they bill it, it is a march against marriage.
    They wish fewer people to be married than do we marriage equality supporters.

    I notice I omitted the <snark> tag in my earlier comment.

    I imagine that all this is made even more difficult in Obama’s North Korea style dictatorship.

    “So, what can be done about it? Many things — but it all boils down to this: we’re launching a campaign to raise $100,000 by the end of April”

    I think that’s the central message.

    Everyone can stop the unfunny remarks about the pushing down the throat thing please. It gets boring. The metaphor is about force feeding, not necessarily about forced fellatio which gets you all so giddy with excitement. The wingnuts are using the expression correctly in this case and in other instances to explain what they think is happening. Even when they are of course still wrong.

    vmanis1 (@9), D. C. Sessions got your snark. I think you’re missing his. The “March for Marriage” is a march against marriage in the same way as the “March for Muscular Dystrophy” is a march to end—not to support—muscular dystrophy and as the “Walk for Breast Cancer” is a walk to end breast cancer.

    Clearly a whole lot of marriage supporters (read: gay marriage supporters) need to show up at this event, signs in tow, arm in arm.

    The gay version of the March for Marriage is better. Sure, the gayhomos are trying to destroy marriage by having it, but their March isn’t a bunch of sour-puss old Puritan and other pearl-clutching hypocritical moralists.
    Plus, the Gay March for Marriage has floats and thumping dance music.

    You know, on some level, you have to admire the ability of rightwing organizations to fleece the gullible.

    Can it be called a march when the majority of them will be riding on rascal scooters?

    Yes indeedy! Let’s have a march to deny a minority equal rights. And just to make it extra ironical, let’s have it on Juneteenth!

    Well, clearly I’m a bit late to the party – moarscienceplz beat me to it.

    Having this on Juneteenth? Fuck white ignorance, that’s just wrong.

    Where is America’s throat, exactly? Is it somewhere in Kansas? One of those sinkholes in Florida?

    Oh, wait — he meant “down Americans’ throats”, as in force-feeding.

    Well, if everybody has to do it once to get it out of their system, and about 100 people post here on occasion, then I figure we have about 50 more to endure.
