Taylor Swift may have stirred up some “Bad Blood” with social justice warriors for not being sufficiently woke in her new pro-LGBT song. On Friday the pop star released the lyric video to the single “You Need to Calm Down” and on Monday she released the official music video which appears to take place in a gay, rainbow-themed trailer park and features dozens of (mostly) LGBT celebrity cameos.
It’s no big secret that the left openly targets Christianity for its views on marriage and gender. From the “Shame List” of faith-based colleges to the “Slate of Hate” of religious liberty bills, private religious institutions everywhere are smacked with the labels “hateful” and “bigotted” by the left-wing media. Now, bestselling romance novelist Nicholas Sparks is next to face the media’s branding iron.
Remember the days when you could plop your kid in front of the TV without worrying about lefty indoctrination? Well, those days are over. Yesterday, Buzzfeed confirmed that My Little Pony will premiere an episode featuring a lesbian couple on Saturday for Discovery Family. This is coupled with a tweet from the Cartoon Network celebrating Pride Month.
Pop star Kesha is out with a new song blasting the intersectional left’s number one, most-hated target – or, as Rolling Stone excitedly reported, “Kesha Rids the World of ‘Rich, White, Straight Men’ on New Track.” The artist formerly known as Ke$ha posted the song literally titled ‘Rich, White, Straight, Men’ on YouTube on Sunday, apparently without the approval of her record label. The video accompanying the song is just a repeated loop of Kesha giving the camera the middle finger, which makes it the most honest depiction of the entertainment industry’s attitude toward middle America I’ve ever seen.
U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell (who's openly gay) earlier this year launched an international campaign to decriminalize homosexuality worldwide, paying particular attention to countries like Iran, where the act carries the death penalty. President Trump recently publicized the initiative on Twitter. A grudging win for Trump from the socially liberal media, right? Not at all. New York Times White House correspondent Katie Rogers’ Saturday story claimed “Trump’s Celebration of L.G.B.T. Rights Is Met With Criticism.”
In an article posted on Monday, The Guardian attacked what the liberal Tennessee Equality Project has dubbed the “Slate of Hate”-- a set of bills designed to protect religious liberty in Tennessee. The headline asserted that the state is “set to ‘legalize hate.’”
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?
During the Third Hour Today show on Tuesday, the network broadcast seized on left-wing outrage over Alabama Public Television deciding not to air an episode of the PBS children’s cartoon Arthur that included a gay wedding. Hosts accused the state of “homophobia and intolerance” for objecting to the controversial program.
Oh, Alabama. Tsk, tsk. You already provoked the attention of Perpetual Outrage, Inc.(™) by trying to make your state safe for the unborn. But your willingness allow parents to raise the kids they do have without the guidance of federally funded gay propaganda is really too much. This disdain for progressive pieties will not stand.
CBS’s social justice mini-series The Red Line finally came to an end on May 19. It’s just another series that has promoted obvious progressive talking points like cops shooting black people and the “peaceful” Black Lives Matter movement. The final two episodes likewise end not with a bang but with a whimper as they preach intolerance in the name of gay acceptance.
Some say that if a hero lives long enough, they’ll eventually see themselves become the villain. Well, that certainly can be said for PBS children's classic Arthur. The show, now in its 22nd season, has taken beloved character, Mr. Ratburn, and made him blindingly queer. In the season premiere, the 3rd grade teacher and male role model for Arthur and his gang said “I do” to a male anthropomorphic muskrat (or something) in a wedding ceremony attended by his students. As one character exclaimed, “It’s a brand new world.”
Unofficially, Hollywood seems to have chosen its candidate. And while that may be an an ambitious claim at this stage in the 2020 race, it only reflects the insane amount of support Hollywood bigwigs are showing to Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana. ABC news ran a story on how just starstruck celebs and heavyweight producers are with Buttigieg, claiming he’s everything they’ve ever dreamed of — the “unicorn candidate.”
