Shanna Moakler: NOM is Hate Group
Shanna Moakler was on the CBS Early Show today to explain why she resigned as co-executive director of Miss California USA one day after Trump's decision to let Carrie Prejean keep the crown. She cited Carrie's self-victimization and association with the National Organization for Marriage, which Shanna considers a "hate group."
“I think she's a young girl, and I think she was thrown into the spotlight (after the Miss USA pageant). I think she was not prepared. I think a lot of organizations latched onto her. They exploited her. They didn't prepare her. I think, you know, she's very honest when she says that, you know, she never expected this. But at the same time, I think it's wrong to start screaming that you're being persecuted and then you go and align yourself with organizations like NOM that are particularly -- I consider them hate groups. (NOM is) the National Organization for Marriage”
She also noted that Carrie should have just admitted that she made a mistake posing for topless pictures instead of blaming it on the wind.
I find it interesting that Shanna and Carrie have both posed for racy pictures but Shanna is honest and open about her life. Carrie, who is so quick to judge others, lacks the integrity to admit what she's done even when she's caught. It's not the pictures, it's the integrity.
