Brad Dacus, of the Pacific Justice Institute, rallied supporters of Prop 8 in Sacramento on Oct. 28, 2008, where he made his now infamous speech about how failing to defeat same-sex marriage was the same as failing to defeat the Nazis. Free speech is a lovely thing, especially when it’s exercised twice. In follow up remarks, when asked about his comments, Dacus told a reporter: “Obviously I wasn’t trying to infer that anyone in the San Francisco Bay Area was akin to the Third Reich or in favor of any cause of the Nazis. That would be a ludicrous understanding of the point that was being made.”
Just in case Olson and Boies need another piece of evidence to buffer their “Yes On 8 was about discrimination” argument.
