‘Obama Is Trying To Force Gay Marriage On This Country’ Says Pro-Romney Ad

A Mitt Romney super PAC has just released this huge lie and hugely offensive ad, supposed to look like the iconic anti-Hillary Clinton health care (“Hillary-Care”) ads from the 1990′s. “Obama is trying to force gay marriage on this country,” the wife says to her husband, as they both agree, “that’s not the change I voted for.”

The super PAC that paid for the ad, the “Campaign for American Values,” has “ties to evangelist leader Gary Bauer,” Politicker notes:

Campaign for American Values was founded in 2010. It is a super PAC and can accept unlimited contributions. According to the latest documents on file with the Federal Election Commission, the group currently has $762,291.53 on hand. The group has several ties to evangelical leader Gary Bauer. Campaign for American Values’ treasurer is Dorie Black, who is also a staffer at Mr. Bauer’s non-profit. The super PAC’s website is registered to an address shared by Mr. Bauer’s political action committee, the campaign for working families. Mr. Bauer also posted the ad on his YouTube page.

Remember, this ad is for the man who promised he’d be a better advocate for LGBT rights than Ted Kennedy, as John Aravosis noted.

Romney is a flip-flopper, but these ads are disgusting.

Gary Bauer, who is Tony Perkins’ predecessor at the Family Research Council, calls marriage equality “an incredible risk to our country and to our faith,” and, as GLAAD notes:

[C]laims the embrace of “the radical idea of men marrying other men” have increased gang culture, deteriorated the black family.

How do you “force gay marriage on this country”? And, to actually address what they’re really claiming, what terrible things would this fictional couple envision if (I mean, when,) same-sex marriage equality is legal in all 50 U.S. states?

If this is what Romney has to use to win, he’s a loser.

Gay marriage should be forced on this country. No one is forcing you to get married to a same-sex partner, but you should be told, plainly and directly, that you can't stop a gay couple from getting married because of your dogma or because you think it's icky.

America is going to be all gay now. …and the sky is falling.
