No on Prop. 8 from Equality California

Another video ad against California’s Prop 8.

Video description: The 30-second video begins and ends with a woman holding an infant. She and several other people address the camera directly: “I don’t want my kids to grow up with discrimination, or thinking it’s okay to take away people’s rights.”

“I want our kids to know that discrimination is wrong, and that Prop 8 is wrong.”

“I want our kid to know that we don’t pass laws that treat people differently.”

“I want them to know that we vote against intolerance, because California is better than that.”

“And that we never, ever discriminate.”

“That’s why we’re voting No on Prop 8.”

“No on 8”

“No on 8.”

    Sorry not to be entirely on-topic here, but I think this issue of equality has to be pushed among self-identified liberals as well as toward independents and conservatives.

    I hope that everyone who is troubled by the advertisement that the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees is running against Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will contact the AFSCME. I sent them the following message:

    To whom it may concern,

    I am horrified at the advertisements the AFSCME is running against Mitch McConnell in Kentucky, and I urge you to remove them and to apologize for them. While there is disagreement among Democrats about the extent to which we should campaign for homosexuals’ equality, I hope there is no disagreement that our tactics should not sink to those of our opponents. Unfortunately, in referencing McConnell’s military record and asking that he be “straight” with voters, the AFSCME has found a low ground to share with Republicans, and it makes me ashamed to have made common cause with the AFSCME.

    Please, please reconsider such advertisements, and please remember that the Democratic coalition cannot be strengthened by using sexual orientation as a fear factor in politics.
