Some people have little sense of history and even less of irony...

Case in point, an organization calling itself MassResistance, apparently a conservative group in the Bay State, which has a screed out there about how marriage equality is ruining their state.

Here's one of my favorites:
It has become commonplace in Massachusetts schools for teachers to display photos of their same-sex "spouses" and occasionally bring their "spouses" to school functions. At one point, both high schools in my own town had principals who were "married" to their same-sex partners who came to school and were introduced to the students.
So if anyone actually knows the history of "massive resistance," they will know it is totally appropriate to play around with the wording a bit here:
It has become commonplace in Massachusetts schools for teachers to display photos of their Negro "spouses" and occasionally bring their "spouses" to school functions. At one point, both high schools in my own town had principals who were "married" to their Negro partners who came to school and were introduced to the students.
But, let's face it, irony is a dead art form in America today.
