Yesterday, we brought you the news that unsealed documents from 2009 revealed the anti-marriage-equality National Organization for Marriage sought to “drive a wedge between gays and blacks.” (Read the whole despicable thing here.)

Another part of NOM’s plan to insert the race card heavily into the fight against gay marriage: recruit “glamorous young” Hispanic celebrities to the cause. Sounds pretty similar to the tactics liberals have been using (more effectively).

“We seek to identify glamorous young Latino and Latina leaders, especially artists, actors, musicians, athletes, writers, and other celebrities willing to stand for marriage, regardless of national boundaries. Develop Spanish-language radio and TV ads in an appropriate range of dialects; develop pamphlets, YouTube videos, church handouts for Spanish-speaking people, and create a template that can be used abroad.”

Beautiful Latina star Naya Rivera, who plays lesbian cheerleader Santana on Glee, seems exactly the star they’d be looking for. Unfortunately for them, she’s already in the LGBT pocket, telling the Huffington Post that “we need more” gay characters on TV:

    Actually, Naya Rivera is a two-fer, she’s a black Latina like Zoe Saldana and Rosario Dawson.
