Maggie Gallagher’s New Culture War Victory Fund Uses Santorum To Beef Up Mailing List

Post image for Maggie Gallagher’s New Culture War Victory Fund Uses Santorum To Beef Up Mailing List

Maggie Gallagher is using GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum to beef up her new venture, by asking email list recipients (apparently, including me!) to “Thank Rick Santorum for Standing Up for Principle!” (Does that sound a little awkward to you, too?) Of course, to “thank” Santorum, you have to give up your name, ZIP code, and email address, so Gallagher and her Culture War Victory Fund (not to be confused with the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund!) get to harvest your info, which is how most of these 501 (c) organizations ultimately make money. More on that below.

Gallagher’s email links to an email harvesting page that reads:

Yes, I want to thank Rick Santorum for his fearless defense of life, marriage and religious liberty.

Yes, I want to fight back against the hard left which attempt to smear not only Santorum but many decent and good people who stand up for marriage.

Yes I want to tell the Wall street Journal and all the GOP elites: values voters matter.

Yes I want the mainstream media to know: some truths really are fundamental to the American Republic!

(One would think for all the millions Gallagher is trying to make off the backs of the LGBT community and Rick Santorum, she could at least spell Wall Street Journal properly, but hey, she is dealing with ignorant haters. They probably can’t spell very well, either.)

You see, it’s all a sham. I’m pretty sure whatever relationship Rick Santorum has with Maggie Gallagher, her “Culture War Victory Find” didn’t clear this harvesting haven with him. (Fess up, Maggie and Rick, are you two in cahoots together?)

Find an issue, beat the hell out of it, put together a huge mailing list, (or, in the case of Tony Perkins, pay the KKK $80,000+ to buy a mailing list,) then scam America by claiming you’re going to DO SOMETHING ABOUT THAT EVIL ________ (insert “culture war” issue topic here.)

Don’t believe me?

Ever sign a petition?

Ever get emails asking you for money?

See?

Need more proof? Pam Spaulding explains the scam here, and links to the $1.3 million proof, courtesy of one of the biggest anti-gay liars of all time, Eugene Delgaudio, whose group earned $1.3 million in 2008, thanks to suckers who hate “the gays.”

(Of course, there are many fine organizations out there who do great work and deserve your support, but you should know that many of these are frauds and scams. Use your judgment. Or, if they’re a charity, look up how they spend their money.)

Maggie Gallagher is asking you to stand with her to thank Rick Santorum for taking a stand against gay marriage.

Gallagher, former Chair of NOM, the National Organization For Marriage — the shadowy organization that’s lost court battle after court battle attempting to shield donors who are too embarrassed that they donated to what has almost become an actual hate group — has been very busy with her latest ventures, including the Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance (MarriageADA), a support network for people who feel they are living in fear because of gay marriage, (yes, seriously, that’s what it is….) and now, her latest scheme, the Culture War Victory Fund. You remember the “culture wars,” right? Does anyone aside from Bill O’Reilly actually use that term anymore?

Good Lord!

Maggie Gallagher is so cute and coy. She says, “I’m not speaking for any organization right now. Just me. Maggie, a girl with a pen.” You see, Maggie really fancies herself a journalist — first and foremost — and it’s just too bad that there was that tiny little controversy, where she accepted tens of thousands of dollars to shill for then-President George W. Bush’s “President’s Healthy Marriage Initiative,” which used your tax dollars to fight same-sex marriage and to make sure opposite-sex marriages were “healthy,” I suppose. Sadly, as she says, I forgot…

“I should have disclosed a government contract when I later wrote about the Bush marriage initiative. I would have, if I had remembered it.”

That’s right, Gallagher just simply forgot to mention that good ol’ George W. had written her a check — from your tax dollars — to tell people that straight marriage is good, gay marriage, bad.

For those of you who feel like doing some research, Maggie’s new Culture Wars Victory Fund is a product of American Principles in Action, which is related to the American Principles Project, which, both, unsurprisingly, has the same address in D.C., at least as their domain name registration, as, wait for it… NOM, the National Organization For Marriage.

Do with that what you will…

Anyway, here’s the text of Maggie’s email, which, frankly, is too long and offensive for me to read and digest and analyze fully, after spending last night thinking and writing about the suicide of a 19-year old LGBT teen whose mother performed an exorcism on him before throwing him out of the house for being gay.

Why don’t you think about that, Maggie, and your “Culture War Victory Find,” which is using anti-LGBT hatred to line your pockets?

The “Culture War,” Maggie, has real, honest to goodness, flesh and blood casualties.

Anyway, finally, here’s the text of Maggie’s email:

You and I have fought hard for marriage together with millions of other Americans.Maggie Gallagher

Will you stand with me today (regardless of which candidate you ultimately support) by thanking Rick Santorum for his fearless and consistent defense of life, marriage and religious liberty?

Click here to sign petition.

I just had to share with you the reasons for my personal decision to rally for Rick Santorum, to show him and the media how many people care about his fearless, deeply moving, personal and political faithfulness to the core principles we care about most.

I’m not speaking for any organization right now. Just me. Maggie, a girl with a pen.

Four years ago, I set out to found a single-issue national organization to fight for marriage—and win.

So, now that I’ve stepped down as NOM’s Chairman of the Board, why am I personally supporting Rick Santorum?

I explained in my nationally syndicated column here:

On Tuesday night in Iowa, he stood before the cheering throngs like a Republican Rocky, or better yet, a latter-day Rudy suddenly lifted above his Notre Dame teammates in a fantastic storybook finish.

Rick Santorum was a contender.

Santorum stood before the cameras, the living embodiment of a certain Northeastern Catholic sensibility: tough, hardworking, less than slick, often underestimated, the kind of guy who has to work hard to get respect because life is tough, not fair—the kind of man who gets knocked down but who will always get up again.

As he recalled his immigrant coal-miner grandfather’s funeral, Santorum’s words sang: “I knelt next to his coffin, and all I could do was look at his hands. They were enormous hands. And all I could think was: ‘Those hands dug freedom for me.’”

“What wins in America,” Rick Santorum said, “are bold ideas, sharp contrasts, and a plan that includes everyone.”

What moved me most are the words Rick Santorum used to “connect the dots”—to explain why support for marriage, for life, and for an economy that provides the dignity of jobs to average Americans are not three separate things. They are bound together by principles—by American principles:

“Whether it’s the sanctity of life in the womb, or the dignity of every working person in America to fulfill their potential, you will have a friend in Rick Santorum,” he said.

Unlike some values voters, I am not anti-anybody, certainly not Mitt Romney. Romney is in my view a fundamentally decent, extremely capable man, who fought hard for marriage in Massachusetts. If he is the GOP nominee, I can vote for him with a clean conscience.

But, when the guy who has taken more hits than any other for standing up for life and marriage fights his way with nobody’s help from nowhere to, well, becoming a major contender for the GOP nomination, I have to cheer. I have to show I stand with him in some special way. Will you help me? Click here now to act.

The left, which thought it had buried Santorum years ago, is going after him with a hatred unmatched. They hate him with that special ire reserved for a man’s virtues, not his vices.

They will go after him not just to defeat Rick Santorum, but to smear his good name, to associate it with their own muck, to take a decent and honorable man and try literally to make his name mean mud.

(Any mother who has tried to google “Santorum” and gotten the gross and obscene definition gay activists have tried to make of his honorable family name—a name which literally means ‘holiest of holies’—will know exactly what I am talking about).

They will not succeed.

The American people, I promise you, are not going to reject a man they would otherwise support because he believes in traditional Christian views of sex and marriage. Especially when he believes—not just with his words, and not just with his vote, but with every action of his soul and his life—that a man’s job is to support his children, born and unborn, to commit a loving and faithful marriage to one woman, and to devote himself to being a good dad.

That’s Rick Santorum.

The media and some GOP elites are trying to dismiss Rick Santorum as a mere “culture warrior” with no chance to win. Will you stand with me today against all those powerful elites who say life, marriage, and religious liberty are not “core” issues to voters?

Will you stand up and say: “Yes life, marriage, and religious liberty matter to me. Thank you Rick Santorum for fighting the good fight your whole political career?”

Here are the unconventional things I’m asking you to do: Regardless of which of these good men you ultimately plan to support, can I ask you today to sign this petition, thanking Rick Santorum for standing up so bravely for life, marriage, and religious liberty?

Can I count you as a “values voter” committed to demonstrating to the media and to Republican elites that social issues matter?

I know it will mean a lot to Rick Santorum and to the social conservative movement. And ultimately to the American Republic.

Win or lose we have a chance to demonstrate that consistent, principled support for marriage, for life, and for religious liberty, matter.

Elections come and go. God’s enduring truths remain.

By signing this petition you will be saying “yes”:

  • Yes, I want to thank Rick Santorum for his fearless defense of life, marriage and religious liberty.
  • Yes, I want to fight back against the hard left which attempt to smear not only Santorum but so many decent and good people who stand up for marriage.
  • Yes, I want to stand tall and tell the Wall Street Journal and all the Washington GOP elites: We values voters are here, we are not going away, and we matter.
  • Yes, I want the mainstream media to know: Some truths really are fundamental to the American Republic. Among these are life, marriage and religious liberty!

Thank you again for being a consistent, principled voice for fundamental truth.

I’m so proud to fight the good fight in the company of people like you.

Together, we can—and will—make a difference.

Maggie

P.S. If you do one thing this week, would you show that values votes matter by thanking Rick Santorum? In doing so, you are not committing yourself to vote for any candidate—some things are bigger than politics! Especially life, liberty and marriage! Thanks in advance for responding to my call to principled action.

In my observation, santorum is *not* "devoting himself to being a good dad" as gallagher claims. He has no chance whatsoever of winning the nomination, or even of being asked to be the eventual V.P.'s running made. Meanwhile, he has a large brood at home that includes a very severely disabled toddler. He is out on his doomed quest, abandoning the very severely disabled toddler at long stretches, depriving her of her "right to be raised by her own father," as it were.

Maggie calls herself "a girl with a pen"???? How about "a cow with an agenda", which would be much closer to the truth.

I am sorry for whatever happened to this "woman" to make her obsess with and hate gay people; my theory is she has a lack of male attention in her life, so she feels she must strike out against the most obvious group that pays her no attention, sexual or otherwise.

I did notice that the picture of Rick Santorum she used on the website is about 20 to 30 pounds ago; perhaps she can use photoshop to perform the same magic on herself. I pray for her health, it is often the angry and depressed who turn to food for solace and comfort, especially as a replacement for interaction and love from fellow humans. I would bet she owns several cats as well.

Well I hope this new website helps Maggie feel she's really throwing her weight behind Rick Santorum and his agenda of lying and spreading falsehoods about gay men (i rarely hear Rick talk about gay women, perhaps his obsession is exclusively male?). Well, Maggie and Rick prove again that a couple of well placed mentally ill individuals can inflict damage on a culture — let's just hope this country comes to it's senses before the patients are running the asylum.

Maqggie is the great defender of "marriage"

Which she defends by having not 1 but 2 illegitimate children.

Since she has been exposed, she seems to have disappeared from the front page stories

RE Delgaurdio – I know he needs a good shrink, I've seen his emails. I didnt realize he was earing a real fat living with his hate. Maybe he should read the bible about the love of money is the root of all evil.

Re money, George Rekers, founder of FRC and the fix the gays NARTH got caught taking a college male escort from rentboy.com with him on a trip to Europe. The boy admitted they had light gay sex.

This was a 2 week trip. the rentboy.com website indicates that to rent a boy, its about $8000/week

Time to cut off the head of the snake. = the money.
