Prop 8 Spokesman Says Defeating Gays is Like Defeating Hitler

by: Julia Rosen

Wed Oct 29, 2008 at 18:05:52 PM PDT


Yes, he went there at an official Sacramento Yes on 8 rally yesterday.  This is Brad Dacus, an official Prop 8 spokesperson speaking.  He is the President of the Pacific Justice Institute, a religious-right lawyers 501c3 organization.

Here is the transcript:

"There was another time in history when people, when the bell tolled. And the question was whether or not they were going to hear it. The time was during Nazi Germany with Adolf Hitler. You see he brought crowds of clergy together to assure them that he was going to look after the church.

And one of the members, bold and courageous, Reverend Niemand (sp?) made his way to the front and (inaudible) said "Hitler, we are not concerned about the church. Jesus Christ will take care of the church.

We are concerned about the soul of Germany." Embarrassed and chagrined, his peers quickly shuffled him to the back.

And as they did Adolf Hitler said, "The soul of Germany, you can leave that to me." And they did, and because they did bombs did not only fall upon the nation of Germany, but also upon the church and their testimony to this very day.

Let us not make that mistake folks. Let us hear the bell! Vote on Proposition 8!"

Dacus is the guy who was the chief architect of the movement to get an opt-out law for parents to take their child out of any school activity that violates their religious or moral beliefs.  Like say if a charter school asks the parents if they want to take their kids on a field trip to celebrate their teacher getting married.  You know, the one they are conveniently forgetting about and then lying in their ads about education and teh children.

The best way you can answer back to Dacus is to get out this weekend and election day and volunteer for the No on 8 campaign.  There is a special netroots volunteer sign-up form.  Fill it out and tell them you came from Calitics.

Heck you can even find instructions on how to get an opt-out form on his organization's website.  This is the guy who is comparing me to Hitler in an attempt to take away my rights.

Oh and there is another outrageous clip on the flip, where another spokesman from the Prop 8 campaign says the gays are trying to recruit children.

Everyone knows Hitler was a strong supporter of gay rights. (8.00 / 1)
That's what I learned in school anyway, just after learning about the Human-Velociraptor war.

Oh the irony (8.00 / 1)
Homosexuals were among the most prominent targets of Hitler and the Holocaust.

They're not content to rewrite the Constitution - now they want to rewrite history as well.

You can check out any time you like but you can never leave


As someone (8.00 / 1)
who is both gay and Jewish and probably lost family in the Holocaust, this is doubly offensive.

Get out and volunteer people!


Dacus is telling the story of Martin Niemöller (0.00 / 0)
Maybe Dacus could also tell the story of Helmuth Hübener, who was excommunicated by his local German Mormon leaders before being executed by the Nazis.

From Wikipedia:

[Hübener's] arrest was in connection to his political and anti-Nazi activities. Because of some of the local [Mormon] church leaders' political actions at the time of his excommunication it is most often seen as the reason why he was excommunicated. Some [Mormon] branch leaders allowed political broadcasts during some church meetings and refused to allow Jews to attend meetings. This was done to show that members were good German citizens.

This kind of irrationality shows exactly why we have to say NO to Prop 8.  We have seen what happens when particular groups get singled out.  We have seen what happens when fundamentals rights are eliminated.  Why should California go down that path?  Let's make sure we get our friends and family out to vote NO!

Even my daughters get it (0.00 / 0)
