Sarah Palin to bring her anti-abortion song and dance back to Dallas at the Majestic on Nov. 10

Sarah Palin’s coming back to town to encourage women once again to have unwanted pregnancies.

She’s scheduled to appear at the Majestic Theater on Nov. 10, The Dallas Observer notes.

We’d go and cover it, but media is routinely denied access to Palin events. I’d love to interview her, actually. I find her fascinating.

Doesn’t say what Palin will do. Sing? Dance? Tell Alaska jokes about lipstick and raising your kids to marry hot guys and get pregnant in high school?

Earlier this year, she appeared in Dallas for a fundraiser for a non-existent anti-abortion clinic in Uptown. The picture used was of a house on Fairmount Street.

The charity was advertised as being a 501(c)(3) but was never registered with the IRS. Anyone who deducts a donation to them could be subject to back taxes and penalties.

The Majestic event is sponsored by a group called Heroic Media.

That group “uses mass media to help women facing unexpected pregnancies to life-affirming resource centers.”

What they don’t provide is medical care for those women.

From Heroic Media’s website:

South Florida has the highest abortion ratio in the United States — the market records more than 600 abortions for every 1,000 births. The area’s 30 abortion facilities target low income and ethnic neighborhoods and their advertisements literally saturate the region.

Florida commercials, billboards and other advertisements generally showcase happy tourists and sun-kissed beachgoers; they don’t depict the desperation experienced by women forced into abortion. Heroic Media wants to provide the women of Florida with hope. They deserve to learn about positive options. They need to know there are people willing to listen and help.

Funny. I have family in South Florida and visit often. I have never seen an abortion ad. Not a billboard. Not a TV or radio ad. Nothing. And they don’t give an example of one of these ads on their website.

More about this if we can get through to Heroic Media. Tried this morning but no answer at their Austin headquarters.

NOM’s desperation mounts as it tries to unseat pro-equality councilmember in DC

Brian and Maggie are really hard up these days after that flop-o-rama of a Summer of Marriage road show. So now they are thinking smaller and inevitably think they are going to be more effective by trying to unseat elected officials that are standing in their way of the master plan to take marriage away from “teh homosexuals” in DC. As expected, in a majority minority area, NOM plays the race card. Again. Peter Montgomery at Right Wing Watch:

As we’ve been reporting, the National Organization for Marriage has been pumping money into Washington D.C.’s Democratic Party primaries in order to make good on its threat to punish elected officials who supported the District’s marriage equality law.

NOM is pouring its resources into attacks on Ward 5 Councilmember Harry ‘Tommy’ Thomas. We recently noted the chutzpah it took for NOM, which has bragged about efforts to get “white suburban Christian Republicans” to fund anti-equality candidates in DC, to send voters a flyer complaining about a fictional flood of “outside” money from San Francisco and New York supposedly attacking Hunter.

NOM’s latest flyer is even worse. It seems calculated for maximum divisiveness, featuring a rich, snooty, white guy looking down his nose at voters with claims that “DC Elites” are disrespecting voters in majority-Black Ward 5 by preventing a referendum on marriage equality. The flyer’s theme fits with comments by Bishop Harry Jackson, who has worked tirelessly to inflame racial divisions over the issue.
I wonder if the man whose image is in this flier knows his visage is pimping bigotry?
