Outrageous Proposition 8 “Legal Analyst” Bob Massi Spouts Disinformation and Propaganda

Dear FOX,

Is Bob Massi a Fox News Legal Analyst???  What kind of commentary is this?  With months of preparation wasted, FOX News’ Bob Massey, on live television mangled easily obtained facts and instead spouted gay activist propaganda:

“this movement, prop 8 was very much funded , millions of dollars, much by the Mormon Church as you know, they spent, they were organized, they went out .. what’s going to happen now? The bottom line is they lost….

There is a lot to be learned by this….  they got out charged, money wise.   They got out organized.  You and I have covered these kind of cases… its all about money.  If you have the amount of money to go out and try to raise the kind of support you want, and to pay the people and the volunteers to get out there, those are the ones that usually win.”

—Bob Massi, Fox News Legal Analyst

Would you like a point by point rebuttal of this awful “legal” analyzing?  I’m just a regular Joe and even I know the true facts about the Proposition 8 campaign.  Send me a check!  I know more than your “Legal Analyst” does!

The Mormon Church gave no money.  They only gave in-kind donations amounting to an insignificant fraction of the donations recieved in the Proposition 8 fight.  As a prop 8 supporter I can tell you that I was not paid, and neither were any of the thousands of volunteers who worked tirelessly for marriage. We worked for Proposition 8 because it was right, not for money.

Proposition 8 supporters were out fundraised and outspent by far, not the other way around.

Fire the “Legal Analyst”.

    This whole commentary from this guy was ridiculous. It’s too bad that he is what all Fox viewers had to hear right after they announced the decision. No unbiased reporting from him… all slated towards the future gay plans to attack marriage again.

    Yes, and how one sided. If politics were all popularity contests, the other side would have won hands down the way the media is reporting it.

    You know, these anti-Mormon bigots do not say why it would be wrong from the Church — or any religious leadership — to have participated in an issue campaign.

    There were such participants on the No-on-8 side, too.

    Here is a post discussing the Church’s true Prop 8 involvement in relation to its tax-exempt status.

    I’m getting pretty fed up with the lies the media is perpetuating.

    I’ve been reading a lot of news articles about the Prop. 8 ruling, just to get a feel for the media coverage. Most were extremely biased to one side (I’ll let you guess which side). And, of course, many mentioned Christian involvement in general, and Mormons specifically. In the comments, it was much, much worse. It is very plain to see that many of these activists see organized religion as an enemy.

    Not all organized religion, Emissary.

    Some time ago I blogged a satirical Top Ten List of why SSM is right. It included the point that the only good religion is the pro-SSM kind.

    After The Ball predicted this. Or more accurately, the authors of that political strategy planned on it. A lie oft repeated ….

    And these are the ones we are supposed to feel secure with when our religious rights are on the line?

    If the commenters were thinking logically, I would agree with you. But in this case, what I saw was not logic, it was pure emotion. Things like “all churches should lose their tax exemption” and “no one belonging to a church should be allowed to vote” and “no religious beliefs should be voiced in the political arena” are not the products of people who are thinking rationally.

    It was unfortunately expected that this would be the outcome. The four judges that forced homosexual marriage upon the entire state of California in May 2008 felt obligated to those they missled into getting “married”. Those four judges are more concerned about their own personal reputatiuons than they are about judicial law. They have now created a specialy protected class within a specialy prortected class of homosexuals that can remain legally married in California, regardless of what the constitution says. This situation cannot remain as is and there needs to be a new challenge filed to invalidate any marriages that do not consist of a man and woman. A married couple in Arkansas had their marriage license revoked last month because it was disscovered that the one that was supposed to be a woman was actually a man. Yes, “rights” can taken away when it is because of doing wrong. Just ask all the people in jail.

    Sorry, my comment was supposed to go in the Supreme Court judges topic. I clicked the wrong comments button. Please move it if possible.

    Here’s another blog post that talks about the Mormon church’s invovement in Prop. 8 and why these claims re: tax exemption are way off base:

    Yikes. It’s surprising this thing got published.

    “It’s a blessing that the next time Prop 8 is put to a vote with the people of California, it won’t share the ballot with the historic “Obama Election” and Black and Hispanic turnout will be lower, despite the pro-Prop 8 rallies sure to be organized again by community and church leaders. We can again expect Mormon money to pour into pro-8 ads and, next time around, this will be the biggest factor in a Prop 8 re-vote. We must prepare now to counter the Mormon ad machine with our own messages to kill the abomination that is Prop 8.”

    That’s the strategy? Hold down the hispanic and black vote? Good tactic guys. Keep it up.

    oh that’s rich. Puts a damper on the minority “protected class” position doesn’t it?

    The trend during the Prop 8 campign rose in our favor and we probably would have had more than 52% if the campaign had gone on another couple of weeks or so.

    One strategy could be to put up our own ballot measure to counter theirs. Such as domestic partnership shall not be construed to be the equivalent of marital status.

    I love how they portray Obama’s 52% as a near landslide, and Proposition 8’s 52% as a bare majority. Hanging on there by a thread! Please. Gerry, thanks for the link, that story was outrageous.

    So, Beetle, when do we get our paychecks? You’ll be able to take your family on a really nice vacation with all the money you earned as a paid prop 8 volunteer.LOL

    Hey, Beetle, could you please blog on this: by the time the SSM people bring this up to another vote, many of the very liberal high school students who opposed prop 8 will be voters. We need our children IN the public schools, as many were last fall, to talk to their peers and be their bright and shining selves in support of what is right.
    BTW, when you ask students to stay home from school in protest of some of these gay support issues, I think you don’t realize that HS student are marked “truant” and whatever went on in class that day they get an “F” on. There must be a better way….

  24. beetlebabee said,

    I wish there were a better way. When the legislators don’t listen, when the federal government doesn’t keep to the constitution, what other course is there? Are you going to allow your children to be indoctrinated if after all you can do no one listens? At some point the only possibility left is to abandon the public school system. Whether for one day or for good, is up to the individual.

    You can’t expect them to pat you on the back for standing up against the tyranny. Losing money hurts them, they’re bound to pass the hurt along. That doesn’t mean it’s wrong, it means it’s right. If it didn’t hurt them, it wouldn’t be effective.

    My personal view is that we need as many people OUT of the public school system as possible and into constitutional homeschool curriculums as possible to keep the leaven in the lump.

    years ago the HS librarian asked a mom to NOT pull her kids out, saying”they are the only light left here. If they leave it will all be dark”. I know it’s sometimes hard, but I know my kids do good being there.

    Leslie, You mean you didn’t get yours yet?? LOL. I just went to the dentist and let me tell you, OW! I could use an extra paycheck!
