I wrote about Chai Feldblum on Tuesday and I am not going to repeat myself. You can click on the link. Then it was American Family Association. Now it is Brian S. Brown of National Organization for Marriage who sees an opportunity for the gullible to send him some money. According to Brown:
It’s being reported that President Donald Trump has nominated a radical LGBT extremist to a key civil rights post. Chai Feldblum is a prominent activist and avowed proponent of expansive special legal rights for gay men, lesbians, bisexuals and the transgendered. Worse, she has repeatedly said that their rights take precedence over any religious liberty claims that Christians might assert. Her nomination to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is a disaster that we must oppose.
None of the above is true. There is nothing radical about the former Georgetown law professor who was raised as an orthodox Jew. “Special rights” is usually a reliable indication that the substance of a claim is bullshit. She also has not said what Brown claims she said (see Tuesday’s piece).
The obligatory petition is linked from: worldcongress.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=[identifying information]. Increasingly we see the consolidation of NOM and World Congress of Families when it comes to raising money.
Brown prattles on and on including:
I don’t understand what’s gotten into President Trump with this
nomination. I wonder if it is more evidence of Ivanka and Jared’s
influence on him. Or maybe the White House is just being lazy because
Feldblum was appointed to the EEOC previously by President Obama …
Brown is too stupid to consider the obvious. There are currently two vacancies on the commission plus a vacancy for general counsel. If Trump does not renominate Feldblum the commission will be down to two members. I really like this part:
I have enjoyed working with President Trump’s administration on many things and do not relish opposing them now, but I am determined to do so in this instance. We cannot sit idly by and let an extreme radical like Chai Feldblum shape our nation’s anti-discrimination laws to punish Christians…
In other words: “I am important. I am special.” My neighbor’s poodle is more influential. I find it interesting that Brown is not offering the supposed quote from Feldblum obtained by Maggie Gallagher, co-found of NOM. I guess that he prefers the hyperbole over an inaccurate quote.
