  • Boycott! - NOM, the failed social engineering project of twice unwed mother Maggie Gallagher that would deny civil rights to gay people, is agitating to boycott companies that don’t discriminate against LGBT employees. Now in range, Apple and Amazon. Given how well their Starbucks and General Mills boycotts have gone, this could be a lot of future Claim Chowder. (Good As You)

Maggie Gallagher sees the Prop 8 future, and weeps

We have little doubt that this trial judge is going to knock down Prop. 8. I hope I’m proven wrong tomorrow. This has been a judge that looks pretty eager to make a historic decision.

– Maggie Gallagher, chairman of the National Organization for Marriage

Poor Maggie Gallagher, what a tough summer she has had. First, Carrie Prejean (the notorious finger-banging Xristian Sensation, and Gallagher’s own shower-nozzle masturbation fetish object) gets married, and of course NOM’s own Feel the Hate bus tours to spread the word of the evils of marriage equality have been poorly attended. And now Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker is set to rule today on the landmark case that might overturn the controversial limiting of civil liberties against gay and lesbian people.

As Maggie Gallagher weeps…

Poor Ethics-challenged Homophobe, former unwed mother and known beauty queen stalker, El Presidente for Life of the failed social engineering non-profit National Organization for Marriage (NOM, which may be a front for the Mormon Church), Chimpy’s shills for hire, the auture of the much-ridiculed Gathering Storm ad, Maggie Gallagher must be having a terrible week:

  • Last week, The Supreme Court ruled against the gay-marriage opponents in an unambiguous 8-to-1 decision holding that petition-signers don’t have a constitutional right to privacy—a reasonable conclusion, given that the petitions were circulated in front of Wal-Mart, among other public venues.
  • And now, a U.S. district judge in Boston, Massachusetts declared Thursday in two separate rulings that a nation-wide ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional because it prohibits individual states from defining what marriage is and is not.
  • CARRIE PREJEAN, The topless Xristian sensation and infamous finger-banging soft-core underaged porn actress, homophobic decrowned/deflowered failed beauty queen, and shower-nozzle masturbation fetish-object of Maggie Gallagher, got straight-married.

NOM: “Carrie who?”

maggie-gallagher

Yes, the inevitable has happened: Ethics-challenged Homophobe, former unwed mother and known beauty queen stalker, El Presidente for Life of the failed social engineering non-profit National Organization for Marriage (NOM, which may be a front for the Mormon Church), Chimpy’s shills for hire, the auture of the much-ridiculed Gathering Storm ad, Maggie Gallagher has scrubbed the taint of Carrie Prejean from the NOM website.

According to the Colorado Independent…

Carrie Prejean, the decrowned Miss California USA and darling of the Christian right, appears to have been scrubbed from the National Organization for Marriage website. The move comes in the wake of a TMZ interview with the man whom Prejean reportedly met through MySpace and had a four-day hotel fling with in 2007. He alleges Prejean sent a series of sex tapes to him over the next couple of years. It’s the latest chapter in the story of Prejean’s partygirl past, which keeps leaking into the public sphere, ruining what had been her budding career as a Christian-values conservative politics spokesperson.

Poor Maggie Gallagher, alone with her WaterPik, weeps in the shower.

Carrie Prejean: the bakery called, they want their cupcakes back

The infamous homophobe and decrowned/deflowered failed beauty queen, soft-core underaged porn actress, and shower-nozzle masturbation fetish-object of NOM’s lesbian-challenged unwed mother Maggie Gallagher, CARRIE PREJEAN is being sued to reimburse the Miss California Pageant for her boob job.

Take THAT, Maggie!

maggie-gallagher

The nominal head of NOM (National Organization for Marriage, AKA the Pity Party), the homophobic Catholic and formerly unwed mother, infamous Dan Quayle-supporting Murphy Brown-bashing, and Chimpy’s ethically-challenged Flack for Hire, Maggie Gallagher, has another notch to add to her belt, so to speak, of losses.

As the DesMoines Register tells us…

Democrats retained a fiercely contested House seat in a special election Tuesday, turning aside Republican hopes to showcase a victory as a sign that Iowa’s political tide has turned.

Maggie, displaying her usual organizational excellence, decided to create The Reclaim Iowa Project, arrived late in the state and late the race, and spent $86,000 to run one of NOM’s unremarkable ads on the teevee machine constantly, and to no avail. And this one didn’t even involve talking corpses discussing the weather in some sort of Gothic-lampoon production of Our Town.

Maggie, we Scissorheads salute you, and hope you continue to run these sorts of campaigns, spending all the money you have on nothing.

UPDATE 1: NOM faces multiple ethics violations accusations in Iowa and Maine.

Maggie bleats on-and-on on gay marriage (again)

maggie-gallagher

Poor Maggie Gallagher. The homophobic Xristian and formerly unwed mother, Chimpy’s notoriously ethics-challenged hack-for-hire and the nominal president of NOM (AKA the Pity Party), she who fetishized failed beauty queen and topless Xristian-lite-porn model sensation, Carrie Prejean, into early retirement, feels that she was almost trapped, Trapped, TRAPPED into what Mooselini calls Gotcha Journalism. But using her slow wits, she managed to decline her tormentor’s questions, but then blogged her answer, anyway, at the Blog at Poo Corner, the most intellectually dishonest spot on the innernets, where she knew that no one would question her.

Steve Chapman, of the Chicago Tribune asks a simple question of the foes of marriage equality, make a prediction about what will happen in states that allow same-sex marriage — “…to make simple, concrete predictions about measurable social indicators — marriage rates, divorce, out-of-wedlock births, child poverty, you name it.”

Now, considering that is a pretty open-ended question, and is exactly the sort of soapbox that Gallagher usually gets on and brays endlessly about how marriage equality is the end of the world as we know it, it seems surprising that she would “politely decline” to answer. (And in fairness to her colleagues in hatred, none of them responded…)

But then, here’s her answer in her post at the Blog at Poo Corner:

In gay-marriage states, a large minority people committed to traditional notions of marriage will feel afraid to speak up for their views, lest they be punished in some way.

Public schools will teach about gay marriage.

Parents in public schools who object to gay marriage being taught to their children will be told with increasing public firmness that they don’t belong in public schools and their views will not be accomodated [sic] in any way.

Religous [sic] institutions will face new legal threats (especially soft litigation threats) that will cause some to close, or modify their missions, to avoid clashing with the government’s official views of marriage (which will include the view that opponents are akin to racists for failing to see same-sex couples as married).

Support for the idea “the ideal for a child is a married mother and father” will decline.

Aside from the typos, Maggies answer, oddly, is not the sort of measurable societal indicators that Chapman was asking for. Those are the scare tactic responses, which in all honesty are boiled down to this: if you allow marriage equality, then we who want to discriminate against gays and lesbians will have no where to go.

See? I told you the Blog at Poo corner is the most intellectually dishonest spot on the innernets.

While Maggie Gallagher and NOM gently weeps

That noted Xristian and under-aged soft core porn model, the surgically augmented Carrie Prejean, Miss California and shower-nozzle masturbation and fetish object of the known beauty queen stalker, Maggie Gallagher,the titular head of the bigoted National Organization for Marriage (aka “the Pitty Party”), has been stripped of her crown and essentially fired.

Prejean was not fired, as you might imagine for the porno-shoots, not for the outspoken-ness of her bigoted ways, but for breech of contract. Prejean it seems found being a beauty queen too taxing for her to do in addition to her rightwing activities and missed too many promotional appearances to keep the title.

Oh, Maggie: this is another fail:

Maggie takes Manhattan! (or tries to)

maggie-gallagher

Noted homophobe and outrageous beauty queen stalker, former single mother and shill for hire, Maggie Gallagher, the auture of the much-ridiculed Gathering Storm ad opposing marriage equality, and nominal president of NOM is now terrorizing New York about the dangers of same-sex marriage.

As usual, her premise that marriage belongs exclusively between a man and a woman, cannot be argued on its merits, so once again she brings in kids to be virtual human shields. Besides using a more “ethnic” voice for New York (a first for the very, very white NOM), this time around they are citing single events that happened in California as what would be the standard if love wins the state.

Well, see for yourself:

But I must counter this premise of kids finding out about love in all its different guises: so what if kids learn that they can marry whoever they want? I don’t understand the problem here. I think what Maggie and the haters are really trying to say is that marriage equality takes away their right to take away the rights of others, or something equally confusing.
