Clay Aiken went up against MSNBC pundit and Family Research Council hate group President Tomy Perkin’s on Sunday’s Face the Nation.
Not only did Tony Perkins sit there and boldly LIE that churches are being forced to host gay weddings. But over and over again he stated that civil rights are based on “natural law” and not once was he corrected with the truth that civil rights are based on the “Declaration of Independence” and the “Constitiution of the United States” and whats right and whats good.
Now I know that Clay Aiken helped out greatly with fighting against North Carolina’s Amendment One. But was he really a good choice to sit against Perkins on Meet The Press?
Only until we have spokespeople on television and in other forms of the media for the LGBT community who are strong and will speak up loudly and forcefully against the lies and propaganda that Perkin’s and his ilk say while they are and they are called out and proven liars in the public eyes will they ever stop getting national platforms to debase us.
Next time you need someone to go up against Tony Perkins, Face the Nation. Call me.
Well except for all those time where she judged gay people, but those don’t count. I have to actually give David Gregory some credit here for pursuing the question. Calling out Crazy Eyes for saying that gay people are “of Satan” is actually rather journalistic of him. Spin, Michele! Spin!
Tip of the hat to AMERICAblog Gay.
On Meet the Press this morning, Senator John McCain, America’s number 1 hoimophobic asshole with a Napoleon Complex is very unhappy and stamping his littlle eviul feet that the results of the Pentagon’s DADT study were leaked, because now he’s saying he won’t listen to those results:
“I will listen to our military leaders, and not a study that is leaked.”
McCain also criticizes the study itself, and says it took the wrong approach:
“All four service chiefs are saying we need a thorough and complete study of the effects, not how to implement the repeal, but the effects on morale and battle effectiveness. That’s what I want, and once we get this study, we need to have hearings and we need to examine it and look at whether it’s the kind of study that we wanted. It isn’t in my view.”
David Gregory also asked what he thought of Cindy McCain’s recent statements on DADT. Said McCain: “I respect the first amendment rights of every member of my family.”
That is until after they say it and you brow beat them at home into issuing a statement saying that they don;t mean it and really support you McCain. Isn’tt hat what you mean?
David Gregory on “Meet The Press” today asked Senator John McCain why Admiral Mullen’s statements isn’t enough to satisfy his 2006 statement that if military leaders say the policy should be changed, that’s what should happen.
Grandpa Munster replied: “As I said back then, we need to have a careful examination. And Admiral Mullen was, as quote, speaking personally. Just this week the commandant of the Marine Corps said that he did not want DADT repealed. There are many in the military who do not want to. We are going to go through, hopefully, a year-long study that will, hopefully, also, have the feelings of the men and women who are serving.”
Well McCain there were many in the military that didn’t want African Americans or women to serve in the armed forces but they eventually got over it. Equality is not a popularity contest.
At this poiut I even question why we would want to serve and defened a country who won’t recognize us as equals.
