Anything involving Donald Trump is crazy. Anything involving Brian Brown is nuts. Combine the two and the result is absolute insanity. In an email to supporters, Brian S. Brown of National Organization for Marriage fame seems to imply that NOM is responsible for Trump’s ban on transgender troops.
The email is titled: “President Trump Acts.” Behold:
Late last week we issued a call for our political leaders to give us more than words, but give us deeds when it comes to fulfilling campaign promises to protect people of faith, defend religious liberty and roll back the dangerous agenda of LGBT extremists pushed by President Obama.
Within hours of our action, President Trump moved forward to implement his previous decision to ban transgender individuals from serving in the military and issued definitive rules for the military to follow.
Clearly the intended inference is that Trump reacted to Brown which seems highly improbable. Why would he? Tony Perkins? Sure. But Brian S. Brown … come to think of it where Agent Orange is concerned the more irrational something is, the greater the probability that it is true.
By now you all know where this is headed. The meme is familiar: Trump does our bidding so hand over some money and he will do more of our bidding. To be completely accurate the email leads to a petition thanking Trump. It does not directly ask for money. The sculpted URL identifies who views the petition and the petition collects more email addresses. This information will be useful the next time NOM wants to send out a gimme. Undoubtedly we will see many more of those by week’s end. If you sign the petition you get this:
