metta8 saidIs Notorious Anti-Gay Group Behind Effort to Sabotage Obama's African-American Support?
1. Totally not shocked by this. It's pretty despicable.
2. This is kind of what I was talking about when I said emotionally charged activism is not always the best method for fighting ignorance. The opposition is banking off of us attacking the African American community in hopes of scoring political votes and dividing two key groups in the liberal base. The reason? They've done it before, and it seems to work pretty well. Plus, it rallies the Christian base. It's a win-win for them.
Activism needs to be part of our strategy, but it needs to be more of a grass roots effort. In instances like this, we need gay organizations to take on more rational takes in fighting these attacks.
