Another Example of the Intolerant Left

In Sunday's Miss USA beauty pageant, judge Perez Hilton, an openly gay celebrity blogger, asked finalist Carrie Prejean, Miss California, the following question:

Vermont recently became the fourth state to legalize same-sex marriage. Do you think every state should follow suit. Why or why not?

As part of Prejean's answer, she said, "I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman."

Her answer drew boos from the audience, and according to Hilton himself, probably cost Prejean the title of Miss USA.

What a sad commentary on the state of our society!

First of all, why is a self-proclaimed "queen of all media" celebrity blogger chosen as a judge of the Miss USA contest? Secondly, why is he allowed to ask an entirely political question on a topic in which he, as a gay man, has a personal interest; and thirdly, why is this girl essentially eliminated from the running for the crown because this judge doesn't agree with her personal opinion on the subject?

Prejean has stated that she believes that her answer cost her the title of Miss USA, and Hilton himself later admitted to Larry King that Prejean's answer hurt her. "She was definitely, either the frontrunner or one of the top two contenders," Hilton told King.

King then asked, "Did you think that it (Prejean's answer) hurt her?"

"Absolutely," Hilton responded, "and I think a lot of the judges did."

Even though it probably cost Prejean the title, she believes that she did the right thing by being true to her beliefs. "I have no regrets," Prejean said. "By having to answer that question in front of a national audience, God was testing my character and faith. I'm glad I stayed true to myself."

For his part, Hilton has called Prejean a "dumb bitch" and said that she has "half a brain." I'm sure that Hilton's status as a "celebrity blogger," qualifies him as an intellectual giant, but don't those comments seem just a little harsh when directed toward someone simply because she doesn't agree with you, especially when they are coming from someone who claims that all viewpoints should be accepted and respected?

Politically Correct Dilemma

The politically correct crowd is facing quite a predicament. No honorable adherent of politically correct speech would ever suggest that humanity faces, in global warming, anything less than a potentially catastrophic crisis of epic proportions. According to those self-proclaimed protectors of the earth, man has the responsibility to do whatever it takes to stop the clock of impending doom.

It is also contrary to accepted politically correct dialogue to suggest that any person might be overweight. Therein lies the dilemma.

Scientists now claim that overweight people cause global warming. That's right. According to scientists, overweight people eat more than lower-weight people, which means that feeding them requires more food production, which is a major cause of CO2 emissions. Additionally, overweight people are more likely to drive a car as opposed to walking, further adding to global warming.

I can't wait to see the all-loving, all-accepting left-wing nuts trying to explain to fat people that they are destroying the planet.

Thousands of Right-Wing Extremists Fail to Become Violent

Homeland Security was ready. They had just issued a report warning law enforcement to be on the alert. But those darn right-wing extremists! They can't do anything right!

There they were - thousands of them, gathered in groups of hundreds and thousands, all across the county, holding tea party protests. They had the perfect opportunity. Surely thousands of hate-oriented, anti-government radicals who are opposed to abortion and illegal immigration could set a couple of cars on fire. There were also plenty of gun-totin' rednecks present. You would think they could have shot-up a few buildings. Better yet, some of the disgruntled military veterans in attendance could have firebombed the buildings. At the very least, someone could have thrown a rock through a window!

It's not like these right-wing extremists haven't had opportunity to witness plenty of properly-conducted protests from which to learn: WTO, G8, G20, pro-immigration, anti-war... leftists really know how protest. So these right-wing extremists have no excuse for not having at least some violence at Wednesday's tea parties.

Now, Homeland Security is going to have to go back to wasting their time on something silly - like Islamic terrorists.

The Loving, Tolerant Left

Those on the left are often telling us that we right-wingers are intolerant hate-mongers. We should be more like they are: tolerant, loving, and open to all viewpoints.

On Tuesday, former Colorado congressman Tom Tancredo saw first-hand just how tolerant and loving the left can be. Tancredo, an outspoken opponent of illegal immigration into the United States, was on the campus of UNC Chapel Hill to give a speech opposing in-state tuition benefits to illegal immigrants.

While he was speaking, protesters were gathered outside the door, chanting, "There's no debate, no space for hate." Wait a minute. No debate? I thought these people were open to all viewpoints. Oh, they must mean that they are open to all viewpoints that are in agreement with their viewpoint.

Well, at least the “no space for hate” part of the chant shows that leftists don’t hate like we right-wing extremists do. When the protests escalated and a window was shattered, I’m sure it was done in a most loving manner. I’m also sure that as Tancredo left, unable to finish his speech, he felt the warmth of the left’s loving embrace.

I just wish that we intolerant right-wing extremist hate-mongers could somehow learn to be as loving and accepting of others as what the left is.

Tax Day Tea Party is Here!

U.S. Military Still the Best

Yesterday's successful rescue of Captain Richard Phillips shows why the United States military is still the best in the world. The Somalian thugs' "demands" of $2 million and a guarantee of their own safety in exchange for Phillips' release was answered by U.S. Navy SEALs with three dead and one captured pirate. I'm guessing that pirates will think twice before again deciding to conduct their "business" with a U.S.-flagged ship.

Note: I haven't given credit to President Obama very often (maybe never before), but I'll give him credit when he deserves it, and I give him credit for authorizing the use of force against the pirates.

Are You Kidding Me?

A U.S. ship captain is being held captive, and the President of the United States refuses to answer reporters’ questions about the situation? Evidently, that is the case with President Barack Obama who, according to a Reuters report "was asked to comment on the situation several times by reporters," but refused to comment, and instead "stuck closely to the script and replied that he wanted to remain focused on housing."

Are you kidding me? The President of the United States cannot focus on more than one thing at a time? We may be in even more trouble than I thought.

Brrr... It's Cold!

I woke up this morning, looked outside, and saw my yard covered with snow - in April! So please, everyone in Indiana, start buying more SUVs. Maybe we can bring some warming to this part of the globe!
