[Video] ‘When did it become hateful to support marriage?’

Anna Maria Hoffman

Video blogger Anna Maria Hoffman wants to know “when it became hateful to support marriage.”

Hoffman, a contributor to conservative website Counter Cultured, tries her best Sarah Palin impersonation while breaking down the current climate around marriage in a recent video posted to YouTube. Hoffman is not a fan of the gays.

She begins the video by calling marriage equality “cool” and opposing same-sex marriage rights “uncool.” Well, at least she's got that part right.

“I thought the popularity contest of who's cool and who's not cool ended right when we left high school,” she says in the video.

The campaign winds up in Arlington, Va., where gay couples will also be denied marriage licenses Jan. 17. Then the group of activists will march approximately four miles to Washington, D.C., to participate in the legal marriage of a couple in front of the Jefferson Memorial.
