Rice University's intolerant marching band turned Saturday's halftime performance into a protest against visiting rival Baylor University's biblically based policy on sexuality. Rice's Marching Owl Band and fans displayed anti-Christian bigotry and showed their support for LGBTQ students at Baylor who recently tried and failed to start an LGBTQ club there.
The Chairman and CEO of the Television Academy calls it the “platinum age of television.” Frank Scherma spoke about how connected television viewing makes friends and family as it is a shared experience. Mostly, though, these awards shows prove it is the platinum age of bloated egos and groupthink.
For a group of entertainment producers who kill to come off as condescendingly woke, ‘SNL’ showrunners look super inept for hiring an apparent racist as one of their new cast members. One of the sketch comedy’s new talents has been labeled a racist by CNN journalists for making fun of Chinese people in 2018. SNL is in an even deeper pickle because another new cast member for the upcoming season is actually Chinese.
Imagine being so deluded that a hellish, child-eating, serial killer clown is one of your icons because his make-up is fabulous and his theatricality hints at what you hope is a homosexual orientation. Now imagine being disappointed the horrific harlequin isn’t gay.
On Saturday afternoon, CNN followed up on its Friday morning hosts gushing over the NFL's Ryan Russell coming out as bisexual by continuing to do its part to promote gay rights as CNN sports analyst Christine Brennan predicted the NFL must "encourage" more gays to come out so that it can be "viable" in the future.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees appeared in a Focus on the Family video last week to promote "Bring Your Bible To School Day," and that was waaaaay too controversial for anti-Christian media. They swarmed over Brees like angry bees for his association with Focus, stinging both with the "anti-LGBT bigot" label. The Washington Post, Deadspin blog, Big Easy Magazine and The Young Turks internet program led the smear against Brees and Focus.
On Friday's New Day, CNN's John Berman interviewed the NFL's Ryan Russell about his decision to announce that he is bisexual. The CNN host gushed over the decision and lamented that Russell is the only NFL member who is openly gay. Berman also ended up essentially pining for more high-profile gay athletes to come out of the closet as he and co-host Alisyn Camerota discussed the issue.
Traditional sexual and gender norms have no relevance in pop culture anymore. We’re past the point where the rebellious phases of youth are seen as just that, and now they’re lauded as some sort of standard that older folks need to adhere to, lest they be called fascists. Though is it really that convincing that since Miley Cyrus and Kristin Stewart can’t stay with a man, “heterosexuality is just not working?”
On MTV’s Video Music Awards on August 25, Taylor Swift won the Video of the Year award for her latest song “You Need to Calm Down.” It’s a song that trashes anyone still dissenting from the LGBTQ agenda, begging them to “control your urges to scream about all the people you hate / 'Cause shade never made anybody less gay.” The network news shows gushed over her leftist activism and the “Taylor Effect” they expect it to provide.
An international research team has just published a controversial genetic study that claims that “it is impossible to use genes to predict someone’s sexuality,” throwing more skepticism on the idea that homosexuals are born that way. However media sites reporting on the issue were quick to downplay the study’s implications, insisting that either way, “same-sex sexual behavior is ‘simply a natural part of our diversity as a species.’”
Variety really, really wants Taylor Swift to be an anti-Trump troubadour. The chorus of Cracker’s raucous “Teens Angst” might not be the greatest line in rock n’ roll history, but it’s up there. And it has the advantage of being timeless. As in 1992, the world needs a lot of things, but the political musings of musicians and poptarts aren’t among them.
Here we go. In the latest episode of “Comedians In Heresy Getting Blacklisted,” legendary stand-up comedian Dave Chappelle has once again ran afoul of the politically correct crowd with jokes that refuse to kiss the ring of every insane progressive cause on the market. Leftwing sites like Vice and Slate couldn’t handle Chappelle’s jokes on trans people and cancel culture, recommending that viewers “skip” his latest Netflix outing.
