On Saturday night, as MSNBC host Ali Velshi hosted his network's live special coverage of the South Carolina Democratic Primary results, he held a discussion and worry fest over the Donald Trump administration's handling of the Coronavirus issue. The liberal host not only mocked Vice President Mike Pence's religious belief in prayer -- which he referred to as "pray the gay away" -- as Velshi blamed him for more HIV infections in Indiana, but he also brought up President Trump's opposition to gun control as a reason not to trust him to deal with an epidemic.
On Friday's New Day show, CNN's John Avlon presented a "Reality Check" segment in which he listed a number of alleged reasons that Vice President Mike Pence's past suggests that he will not be suitable for coordinating the federal government's efforts against the coronavirus. Avlon not only hinted that Vice President Pence's history of praying is "superstition," but, amongst his list, he even suggested that being skeptical of climate alarmism was a sign that sometimes the vice president is "barely on speaking terms with science."
Apple TV has truly hit the peak of progressiveness, and there’s no turning back. The five-part documentary series Visible: Out on Television spells out the true agenda behind LGBTQ representation on television. Namely, the idea that “television is at its best” when it’s being used as a tool for the gay community.
Tuesday, June 11 marked the beginning of another season of Pose on FX and the flood of LGBTQ+ activism that comes with it. By now, the constants cries about homophobia and racism should come as no surprise to anyone who is familiar with this show based in New York in the late '80s and early '90s.
ABC’s Designated Survivor almost faced cancellation last year until Netflix surprisingly saved the series. Considering the show already featured awful jabs at Republicans and America’s “gun problem” when it was on network television, pushing it to a streaming site with less restrictions meant nothing but trouble. Sure enough, Designated Survivor is not only worse than before but one of the most social justice-pandering, politically-slanted, overly-vulgar shows of the summer.
Maybe GLAAD, Hollywood’s gay lobby, can find some satisfaction in the fact that through all their grandstanding, more gay representation has found its way into the film industry. Turns out, 2018 was one of the best years in the history of gya representation in movies, but as we all have come to expect, GLAAD’s never one to shut up. Yes, there was ample gay visibility, but what about transgender visibility?
The Washington Post "Fact Checker" squad has one article featured every Sunday in the A-section. On Easter Sunday, Glenn Kessler established that Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg should not claim Vice President Mike Pence spoke in favor of "conversion therapy" to press homosexuals to drop their same-sex attraction. "We can find no evidence that Pence ever expressed support for conversion therapy." And yet....where are the Pinocchios?
The Annual GLAAD Media Awards Nominations recently hit the internet rounds, rewarding all things gay in entertainment and journalism. Of course all the gayest staples were present in terms of movies and TV shows. Gay teen dramedy Love, Simon rounded out the list for “Outstanding Movies,” while Will & Grace, Modern Family, and Dear White People were listed as contenders for the TV nod. My money’s on Will & Grace for it’s very flam rendition of our 16th president, “Gaybraham Lincoln” and his “Lincoln log.” Really.
On Friday's Real Time show, HBO host Bill Maher not only complained about what he called "patriotic bulls***" at national sporting events, but he also lauded former Secretary of State John Kerry as someone who "told the truth" about the Vietnam War, and gave him a forum to take credit for the program that fights AIDS in Africa without noting that it was President George W. Bush who pushed for its creation.
LGBTQ people are not just victims of political policy; they are also victims of disease. And it’s conservatives’ fault, one writer suggests.
Season Two of Netflix’s original hit show GLOW premiered last Friday with ten episodes to binge on, and the season was thankfully tamer compared to season one. But that’s not saying much considering how season one was one big “f--- you to the Republican party,” and was filled with rampant sex, foul language, abortion and more.
It was only a matter of time before a show centered on the LGBT community and AIDs in the late 1980s would push the myth that Ronald Reagan turned a blind eye to AIDs. Sunday night’s episode of FX’s Pose falsely claimed President Reagan “will not say the word ‘AIDS.’"
