The great Morgan Freeman lends his talents for a marriage equality advertisement.

Courtesy of the Wisconsin Gazette:  

The Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest LGBT civil rights organization, released a national TV ad campaign celebrating marriage equality and featuring the voice of Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman. 

The ad titled "Dawn of a New Day" began running on Nov. 25 and is available online. 

The ad script: 

"America stands at the dawn of a new day.
 Freedom, justice and human dignity have always guided our journey toward a more perfect union.
 Now across our country, we are standing together for the right of gay and lesbian Americans to marry the person they love. 
And with historic victories for marriage, we've delivered a mandate for full equality.
 The wind is at our back. But our journey has just begun. 
Join us."

I swear that voice could sell 3D televisions to the sightless.  Amazing voice, amazing man.

    This is how wickedly smart our president is!

    How Obama Killed the Norquist Pledge

    ...All of this - the Republican bubble - hinged on a single thing, however. Their fantasy would or would not become reality based on a singular event: the 2012 presidential election. The Republicans bet their house on their inside-the-bubble idea that they were successful in their obstruction and thus this president would be a one-term president. The President, on the other hand, made a different bet with the same hinge. He bet that he could make the case to the American people to return him to office. While Republicans did everything with an eye towards a goal of making this president a failure, the president put his presidency on the line to do the right thing. And he took his case to the American people.

    The American people listened, and we sent the president back to the White House with a thumping victory. Suddenly, the Republican bubble burst. Suddenly, their house of cards collapsed in on itself. Suddenly, the GOP found a strengthened, re-elected President who ran on the promise of raising taxes on the wealthiest, and won. Twice. The real "demographic" the GOP should be worried about isn't just the increasingly ethnically diverse face of America but a the spring of a new American economic patriotism that believes in the common good and in investing in our people by ensuring everyone pay their fair share.

    Republicans were not prepared. They weren't prepared for the possibility that the president would win re-election and that all of their obstruction would blow up in their faces in the form of the fiscal cliff. And now they are scurrying like roaches to figure out a way to avoid the cliff, knowing the president holds most of the cards. They put a lot of things on the bet that Obama would lose, and now that it didn't happen, they are abandoning their pledge never ever to ask the rich to pay their fair share. Right now, saving their defense jobs and not being blamed for another recession is suddenly more important to them than holding firm on the Norquist pledge.

    Well, at least I can comment on the actual posting!

    Morgan Freeman has ALWAYS been near the top of my favorites list. The man is quiet, calm, educated and thought provoking. He can take almost any subject and make it palatable for almost anyone except the die-hard delusional haters and the Xtions! (Those people will NEVER accept any law which allows the LGBT community equal rights of any sort.)

    I admire that man for a lot of things, but mostly his compassion and his strength of character. A character that lets him stand up and say, and do, what is right.

    He sounds like how I imagine God would sound but that's probably because he played God once lol.

    Morgan Freeman could read a Sarah Palin speech, and I'd hang on every word (Yes, he's THAT good!)

    I love everything about this advertisement, especially the use of the Constitution and those wonderful words "A more perfect union" in relationship to Marriage Equality for all.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
