    It's hard to violate Godwin's law when the subject of your criticism borrows exact language from the Nazis.

      The group is lead by Paul Jackson, whose Facebook page describes him as a 1992 graduate of Provo High School, a supporter of "traditional marriage" and a Tea Party enthusiast. Currently, he is the sole member of the Patriots for a Moral Utah’s Facebook page. It is unknown how many people belong to Patriots for a Moral Utah. There is no organization registered with the state under the name.

      •  Yep, it's bogus. No press conference scheduled. (6+ / 0-)

        According to the article, the "press conference" is supposed to take place at the Capitol Rotunda.  Whose schedule must be booked in advance, and which is posted online.  

        March agenda.

              The author of the original article did a really sloppy job.  I mean, I checked this out just because I had a couple of minutes:  but it's his job as a journalist to verify info before putting it out there to fake people out.  He must have gone to the Drudge schul of reporterage.  

              And believe me, it's not like I've never made a mistake in a diary.  

              Just wanted to get the facts out.  Good idea to let people unrec; that way, there's less confusion.

        hoaxers, if corporatespeak wasn't subject to such unbelievable excesses of greed.

        And this hoax, of apparently Nazi-flavored homophobia, wouldn't have any oomph if we didn't know the forces of bigotry are plenty creepy.
