National Organization For Marriage Invokes Civil Rights Movement

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) isn’t sponsoring too many ballot initiatives attempting to ban same sex marriage during this election cycle, but the group is plenty busy pouring its money into campaigns on behalf of candidates, like Minnesota gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer, who are in favor of a constitutional amendment to outlaw gay marriage. The argument here is that voters, not the courts, should decide the matter. The Minnesota Independent reports that NOM is up with its fourth political ad of the cycle in the state — and that this one is drawing some pretty strange parallels between the civil rights movement and its cause:

The Minnesota Family Council and the National Organization for Marriage launched a new television ad this week in support of Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer. It’s the fourth foray into political advertising for the socially conservative groups this cycle and the second television ad. The ad uses footage of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and says that Emmer is the only candidate that supports putting a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage on the ballot.

“It is important that the citizens of Minnesota know that both Mark Dayton and Tom Horner support imposing gay ‘marriage’ on Minnesotans without a vote of the people,” Tom Prichard of the Minnesota Family Council said in a press release about the ad. “Only Tom Emmer has publicly supported traditional marriage and the right of the people to vote on this important issue. That’s what this ad communicates.”

“The right to vote: our most important civil right,” the ad’s narrator croons over footage from the civil rights movement, before launching into an attack against Tom Emmer’s opponents for apparently deferring to the courts on the issue of gay marriage. Even if you set aside the strangeness of equating the civil rights movement with denying rights to gays and lesbians, haven’t these folks ever heard of Brown v. Board of Education?

You can find the full ad here.
