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.
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.
