False anti-gay claims targeted at black voters in swing states
November 02, 2003
In an effort to win more votes for George W. Bush and other Republicans in the 2004 election, conservatives marketed false anti-gay claims to black voters in swing states.
- An automated telephone message that called voters in predominantly black cities like Detroit and said, “When you vote this Tuesday, remember to legalize gay marriage by supporting John Kerry.”
- Propaganda in Oregon that claimed that if the anti-gay marriage amendment failed, “gay and lesbian sex [would] be taught in Oregon schools.”
- The Republican parties of West Virginia and Arkansas distributing fliers stating that liberal politicians were planning to ban the Bible and legalize same-sex marriage.
