  1. I would like to say that the amount of Hate that GLAAD has garnered on their Facebook is quite the thing. Also that members of the lgbt community aren’t speaking up or speaking out. I would like to say that I applaud a few African American leaders that have voiced outrage over the whole thing. I went looking at many organizations within the LGBT community that were supposed to be the voice of the community only to find nothing. I find that many were in fear of their personal opinions or thoughts for what is right vs the backlash of opinion. I am truly disappointed and also for the lack of clarity by the community what free speech is vs personal opinion and constitutional rights and wrongs. Want freedoms, speak up. Want to set everything back. Stay quiet and do nothing. The perfect time to educate and yet silence.

  2. What drives me nuts is your Harvey Levin type.
    Being a Louisiana native, I’ve heard worse things come from the pulpit than what this guy said.

    But Levin and his ilk claim activists are responsible for this guy and Paula Dean losin edorsements. “BUT”…. with Alec Baldwin’s “F”word debacle, the TMZ crew and many in the media were wondering why MSNBC hired him in the first place & he had to go YESTERDAY for his rants.

    From Harvey Levin, to, of all people, Sarah Palin who called critics of Robertson’s comments hypocritical, had me thinking.

    Earlier this year athletes who made homophobic remarks, a few pundits, [Levin included] said their owners had a right to fire them.

    Same with others like; Isaiah Washington, Tracey Morgan, Chris Brown, and a slew or hip- hop stars’ misogynistic comments, I don’t recall Sarah Palin and Harvey Levin defending their right to free speech.

    Even worse, after Paris Hilton said gays were had AIDS and were promiscuous, TMZ and other media conglomerates acted as if it never happened. Mr. Levin, excoriated a caller to his show saying ” Do remember this, the Hilton’s are richer than you and that’s all that counts. ” “Some people get a pass and only haters disagree.”

    Point being, in life, we all are jaded and take sides.

    Face it, this is what our media has become. Controversial sound bites and naked celebrity pics. CNN, MSNBC, and….especially TMZ . Media giants live for the ‘Gotcha’.
