Equality Maine—Epic Grass Roots FAIL!

grassroots_fail_1

First came the news that Equality California (EQCA) was uprooting activists and moving them to Maine to fight against the People’s Veto.  Now this.

Today as I was tweeting my heart out on Tweetdeck, I came across many pleas for assistance from the Equality Maine group, and then there was this reply:

Click the link provided and voila!  A map appears with precise location targeted for the phone bank.  Sure enough, it’s Redlands California, more than 3,000 miles from the nearest port in Maine.

But Wait, There’s More!  Here’s example #2 of EPIC Grass Roots FAIL:

Free Maine Vacation! Courtesy of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force

“Meetup in Maine” By Lisa Neff

“Well, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force has taken on the role of travel agent and is lining up GLBT folks from across the country for an October holiday.

This is a New England holiday, a meet-up in Maine, where, next month, Mainers and their out-of-state allies will be courting votes to defend marriage rights against a wrong-wing attack.

“We need volunteers who can commit to spending at least a week in Maine in October to be part of an unprecedented get-out-the-vote operation,” reads the action alert from the NGLTF. “We have several shifts to choose from, each lasting one week. If you can, feel free to take more than one shift.”

And, for those who can’t trek to Maine, join the stay-cation volunteer campaign. Pledge support or donate to No on 1/Protect Maine Equality.”

Our friend gabegonz must be a “stay-cation” volunteer.  Thank you to the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and @gabegonz for your tweet display of honesty to the people of Maine.  But I can’t say the same for the “No on 1″ Campaign.

What about the promises made in the beginning of the campaign that this would be a local deal?  It looks like a grass-roots FAIL of epic proportions as I looked into the issue deeper and found that the “No on 1″ campaign is actually ADVERTISING for astroturfers on their website!

“The countdown is on. In the weeks ahead, volunteers will be needed in key places throughout the state. Join us by taking a Volunteer Vacation and if you live in Maine, we also need help finding housing for our out-of-state volunteers.” —“No on 1″ Campaign Website

Epic FAIL.

Stand for Marriage Maine!  Stand up and hold back against the tide of the opposition!  Truly, this is an issue that will affect us all for generations.

More Indoctrination? The “Story of Stuff” Debunked

Debunking The Story of Stuff

Glenn Beck: September 22, 2009

Indoctrination? Actually, the progressives are starting much younger these days…there is a video being played in schools all across America — that lays out the ‘story of stuff’ a loving, anti-capitalist tale that unfortunately has virtually no facts correct. Visit THIS site to watch the video (if you can stomach the entire thing) — when you are done, check out this thorough debunking of the video, in which the commentator investigates the footnotes used in the ‘story of stuff’ video.

Public School Children Replace Anthem Words With Praises to Barack Hussein Obama

This was filmed around June 19, 2009 at the B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington, NJ.

Barack Hussein Obama
He said that all must lend a hand
To make this country strong again
Mmm, mmm, mm!

Barack Hussein Obama
He said we must be clear today
Equal work means equal pay
Mmm, mmm, mm!

Barack Hussein Obama
He said that we must take a stand
To make sure everyone gets a chance
Mmm, mmm, mm!

Barack Hussein Obama
He said Red, Yellow, Black or White
All are equal in his sight Mmm, mmm, mm!

Hello Mr. President, we honor you today, for all your great accomplishments we all must sing hooray! Hooray Mr. President, you’re number 1! The first black American to lead this great nation. Hooray Mr. President we honor your great plans to make this economy number one again! Hooray Mr. President we’re really proud of you and you stand for all _________ red white and blue. So 3 cheers for Mr. President for all you do is great! So here is _________ President. Hip Hip Hooray, Hip, Hip! Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray!”

These are public school children, singing not in praise of the country, or praise for the office, but praise for the man, AND for his policies.  This is indoctrination.

When parents stood up and said they would not stand by while their children were dragged into participation in Barack Obama’s cult of personality, who was overreacting?
