RIGHT-WING PROMISES TO BEAT US UP!
HILARIOUS NEW VIDEO COMMERCIAL FROM NEW YORKERS FOR CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOMS 'threatens" GAYS AND LESBIANS!
A new group calling itself "New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms" has, without any apparent sense of irony at all, just released a video to kick off a retaliatory campaign against another group called "Fight Back New York."
FBNY formed in the aftermath of New York's failure to pass same-sex marriage rights with the goal of unseating those NY senators who opposed the legislation and especially those six democratic senators who lied to the Gay Community, took our donations, and then betrayed us at the vote.
Particularly amusing, given the violent fight imagery in the video, is that one of the politicians "New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms" seeks to protect is Hiram Monserrate, a former policeman turned state senator, who was recently convicted of beating up his girlfriend and slashing her face. Although the conviction was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor, Monserrate was expelled from his senate seat by his own colleagues.
So now, "New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms" is promising to beat us up. To gay-bash us at the polls, as it were. And if the video encourages a little bashing in the streets, too, I'm sure they won't mind.
And damn, that boxer is hot. I'd do him.
