NOM Supporter and Wisconsin State Assembly Candidate Gives Up After Anti-Gay Tweet and Racist Posts Resurface

UPDATE 9/17/2014: We have learned late Tuesday that Jacob Dorsey has suspended his campaign for State Assembly 44th District (Janesville, Wisconsin). Read news story here. NOManiacs would like to thank the Janesville community, Wisconsin press, political leaders and organizations (both Republican and Democrat) in Wisconsin who stepped up and denounced his hate speech, our Twitter friends and followers. We hope Jacob Dorsey truly regrets his posts. America needs leaders at all levels who champion diversity and are committed to represent all. Dorsey was not yet that person. 

UPDATE 9/16/2014: NOManiacs has discovered Youtube comments made by Jacob Dorsey (jdorsey1995) https://www.youtube.com/user/jdorsey1995

Meet Jacob Dorsey. Last Christmas, he was angry that Utah was allowing gay marriages to take place. He sent out a Tweet. 9 months later, even after it was deleted, NOManiacs received a notice from Facebook that the screencap of the Tweet was removed. We wondered why. Turns out, this 19-year-old Mormon kid halted his studies at BYU-Idaho in order to run for Wisconsin State Assembly in Janesville. Made sense — he wanted that screencap removed. So we reposted it. We sent it to the Janesville press, various media outlets. The people have a right to know who and what they are voting.

Within a week, Jacob Dorsey has “apologized” to the press in a statement. He claims he “promptly deleted it” which is untrue. He deleted the gay slur DAYS after and only after getting unwanted attention for it.

Now he’s getting support from an anti-gay Facebook group. He even went as far as to personally thank them.

Here’s how it played out (click to expand graphic):

My Name is Joe Garcia and I’m a NOM Supporter and I Think Gay People Should Be Murdered

Image

Meet the new loudmouth supporter on NOM’s Facebook Page, Joe Garcia. The last thing NOM needs right now is ANOTHER supporter calling for the death of gay people. Why hasn’t he been banned, NOM?

Like Mary Marcolin, featured in our last post, he, too, hails from a state where marriage equality exists.

Image

Image

Joe has a friend, Eddie C Simolin, who agrees with his murder comment and anything Joe posts. He goes so far to defend him on NOM’s Facebook page.

My Name is Mary Marcolin and I’m a NOM Supporter Obsessed with Anal Sex

Image

Really, NOM? You just posted recently about “trolls” on your Facebook page who turn out 9 times out of 10 being people who politely disagree with you. Yet, people like Mary Marcolin are not banned despite using hate language or graphic references to fuel her animus. 

Times are tough for NOM and Mary (she lives in Maryland where there is marriage equality). She reminded us of resident anus-expert Wayne C Cooper

NOM addresses “trolls” on its Facebook page; conveniently ignores hate speech posts

Finally. For the first in over 4 years, National Organization for Marriage decided to finally address their Facebook page. We’ve seen some pretty nasty comments on there — after all, an organization is made possible by their supporters. However, today, NOM posted a “PSA” for their supporters — “ignore the trolls, report them, etc.” Silly.

Image

What NOM does not address
• NOM’s supporters who post hate speech (even those who do it very frequently) are never banned
• Those who post views or engage in a debate with a dissenting/pro-gay marriage view have been banned
• Those who point out the hate speech posted by NOM supporters have been banned
• NOM’s supporters create duplicate profiles or go under fake names
• NOM is falling and can’t get up — so finally after 4 years, they have time to address their Facebook page

Let’s point out some examples. These individuals featured below have not been banned by NOM. Many post on a daily basis to NOM’s Facebook page. Why aren’t these individuals banned?

This flyer was circulated at the March for Marriage last year. It highlighted NOM’s most anti-gay supporters (most posts weren’t even about marriage). It was also sent to the Lee Boys, the band that NOM had selected to perform at the March for Marriage. The Lee Boys promptly cancelled on NOM.

So, NOM, you really want to address your Facebook page? Maybe it begins with your supporters, not the “trolls.” A “troll” to NOM is anyone who disagrees and posts their viewpoint to the Facebook page, even when they post in a civil manner.

Black Roses: Rose Parade Boycott by NOM Supporter Karen Grube Backfires.

karen_grube_1388194904200_1716507_ver1.0_640_480

Karen L. Grube of San Diego is no stranger to this blog (she tried removing NOManiacs a year or so ago). When she learned that the 2014 Tournament of Roses Parade was to feature a gay male couple marrying (because it’s legal in California) on top of a parade float (because that’s super awesome and straight couples have married there in years past), she immediately started a boycott. Grube got some initial local media attention for her Boycott the 2014 Rose Parade page. However, her rationale for the boycott was quite flawed. Choosing to not use the religious route, she claimed Prop 8 was still in effect. Prop 8 was halted in late June 2013 by the Supreme Court and marriages have been taking place since then. Call it intense denial, Grube was reminded even by news media that Prop 8 was no longer in effect.

Here is the 10News Story.

Image

People began to point out how ridiculous her claims were, so she resorted to another one.

Image

Grube by now, frustrated, turned to her Boycott the 2014 Rose Parade Facebook page. She asked people to go onto the Rose Parade Facebook page, news sites, including the LA Times, featuring the boycott story to flood it with comments supporting the boycott. Clearly, she wasn’t the only one that was frustrated.

Image

Image

Disgraced Pasadena pastor Wayne Cooper jumped in. As you may remember, Cooper was exposed over the years for posting disgusting, graphic hate speech claiming that “gay men eat feces.” Great company you keep there, Grube.

Some even suggested spamming and tampering with the Rose Parade Facebook page.

Image

Image

As Grube turned her attention to external websites and news stories, her boycott page was receiving new likes at a steady rate.

However, hate speech was also being posted on Grube’s Boycott page.

Image

Image

The marriage float, sponsored but the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, was to point out that research has shown that the sanctity of marriage was one way of preventing HIV and other sexually-transmitted diseases.

Image
Grube, who presses the buttons for the Boycott Page, gave this particular hateful comment a LIKE. When pointed out on Twitter, she even defended it.

Image

There was one post on the Boycott page that received a lot of attention.
Image

This was in reference to “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson who known as a duck hunter, loves his guns and 15-year-old women are ripe for marriage (no, we are not making this up). Tracy Potter suggested murdering the gay couple.

After exposing this comment and Grube’s inaction to remove it, she claimed that she also received threats. All of a sudden she was now the victim. Easy way out.

The 2014 Rose Parade was a huge success and the marriage took place. News outlets later reported it was one of the highest rated parade broadcasts. So much for the boycott. Actually, the “boycott” and news coverage of it created new fans who invited the parade into their homes. Some even attended in person specifically to see the marriage.

Grube had failed. Hard. JoeMyGod even pointed out that Grube had proven not only to be a homophobe with too much spare time on her hands but also a racist individual.

If you don’t like this blog, NOM supporters, TOUGH.

Image

We’ve received a lot of hate mail over the past year from NOM supporters. Some are threatening. Some come with a list of demands.

One NOM supporter, Leila Habra Miller, contacted us recently asking us to repost the WHOLE thread containing the homophobic posts she made on National Organization for Marriage’s Facebook Page back in… get this, early Spring! When we refused to comply with her demands and reminded her that this is not her blog, she continuously spammed our blog (see below) and even hired her pal JoAnna Wahlund (who is no stranger to the NOM Facebook page) to write a complaint (full of silly insults) to us. Leila demanded that we engage in a debate on her blog about why she isn’t a homophobe. If you are not a homophobe, Leila, why did you post articles about bestiality and attribute it to the LGBT community as part of your silly arguments against marriage equality?
Why did you defend “a grandma” who posted this?
Sorry, lady, we owe you nothing.

We did our homework. This blog exists solely to expose just how hateful, crazy and wacky NOM supporters can be, especially when they are caught. We do not comply to demands. If you are featured on this blog and you want your posts removed, too bad. It is now up to you to explain to friends, family, partners, coworkers why you posted hateful things. We can’t do that for you. If you google yourself and you don’t like the search results, maybe it’s time to reevaluate your actions online (googling “Leila Habra Miller” results in the NOManiacs link featuring her hateful posts).

Spamming our blog doesn’t help.
