Yep, this is a great way to appeal to the 61% of Californians who voted against accepting gay marriage in the state in 2000: Equate Gov. Schwarzenegger, and those same voters indirectly, with the racist policies of the late Alabama Gov. George Wallace.
Commercial Compares Schwarzenegger to Wallace – CBS 5 (San Francisco)
Gay rights activists plan to air a television commercial this week that compares Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s forthcoming veto of a bill that would legalize same-sex marriage in California to the segregationist policies of former Alabama Gov. George Wallace.
Because Lord knows, when ever you oppose any political issue of the Secular Left, you are obviously a racist.
RELATED UPDATE: Chad at Cake Or Death points out that the gay rights groups in Massachusetts now have the LibDem Party all in a twist…..
State Speaker Sal DiMasi (D) “has no realistic choice other than to allow a vote of the legislators inasmuch as the Democratic support of homosexual marriage is destroying his Party in this state.”
UP-UPDATE (from GPW): On the day after his second blogiversary, BoifromTroy notes that a Reiner (AKA Meathead) Strategist is Behind the Attacks on the Governator. And he thinks Equality California may be becoming a “fringe-organization in California Politics instead of a useful means to advance gay and lesbian rights in the State.”
