MSNBC's Joy Reid set aside nearly six minutes of air time on Wednesday's The Reid Report to letting homosexual activists Larry Kramer and Dan Savage boast about their longtime involvement in the far-left LGBT movement. Reid gave Kramer a platform to wax ecstatic about his founding of the radical group ACT-UP, as well as boost his play/movie The Normal Heart. Savage hyped his It Gets Better Project, and sang the praises of Kramer during the segment
Regardless of what The Washington Post says, its “Civilities” advice column is not primarily about manners. It's a political correctness column, about adjusting to the new intolerance of anything that doesn’t offer complete acceptance of the gay agenda.
Steven Petrow isn’t really for “manners” when it comes to conservatives or religious traditionalists. On his Facebook page, he praised a “great interview” The Wall Street Journal conducted promoting the books of one of the biggest gay bullies around, “sex columnist” Dan Savage, who concluded a promotion for his book "American Savage" with this exchange.
The Washington Post' s free tabloid Express put Dan Savage in its "top stops" feature -- "The best things to do this weekend." He's touring with his annual festival of amateur pornography.
"If you're shy, you may want to avoid this touring version of the Pacific Northwest's Hump! Film Festival. Curated by 'Savage Love' columnist Dan Savage, Hump! is a 90-minute showcase of short, often pornographic films that celebrate all types of human sexuality," it promised. It's showing at the trendy-left Woolly Mammoth Theater in DC. What's exactly "all types" of sexuality? Here are some of the offerings from Savage's Humptour.com website:
You’ll have to forgive the delay on this item, but perhaps it was best to get a polite distance from the Christmas season before we review how “War on Christmas” books make some liberals lose their marbles.
On December 18 at his usual Internet haunt, TheStranger.com, Dan Savage posted his failed attempt to review Sarah Palin’s book “Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas.” He didn’t actually read it. His anger management issues were too strong, and he reported he kept flinging the book across the room. (Warning: graphic language and hate speech ahead).
As NewsBusters previously reported, HBO's Real Time this past Friday once again featured some truly disgusting attacks on the Pope, priests, and the Catholic Church. This has led the Catholic League to formally request HBO and Time Warner fire host Bill Maher and cancel the show.
On Tuesday, after Newsmax TV's Steve Malzberg played a clip of Maher and guest Dan Savage from Friday's program to Catholic League president Bill Donohue, Donohue responded (video follows with transcript and commentary):
The Catholic Church in the United States has taken extraordinary steps in the last decade to stamp out any sexual abuse by clergy or other responsible adults at Catholic churches. The problem is becoming a rarity. But vicious homosexual activists take any Catholic opposition to their agenda and accuse every church official of either sexual abuse or complete tolerance of sexual abuse.
On Friday night’s Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, America’s leading basher of religion welcomed leftist sex columnist Dan Savage, who claims to be against bullying but often sounds like a bully. He unleashed a tirade against “Catholic f—ing bishops, priests, cardinals” that oppose gay marriage:
Conservative Telegraph (U.K.) columnist Tim Stanley reported on the latest outrage from MTV star Dan Savage in Australia. “As part of the Festival of Dangerous Ideas, he went head-to-head with Britain's Peter Hitchens on marriage, Christianity and sex – and got progressively filthier and angrier as the evening wore on.”
At the end, when panelists were asked to provide a truly “dangerous idea,” he cracked that abortion should be mandatory:
NPR has been a breeze beneath the wings of snarky gay advice columnist/MTV host Dan Savage on his book tour for “American Savage.” NPR White House correspondent Ari Shapiro hosted a book event in his hometown of Seattle. Now, Savage is denouncing traditional Mormons and Catholics on the NPR station KCPW in Salt Lake City.
The local NPR drone Ryan Cunningham wished him a happy birthday, and led him through a softball interview. Savage (inaccurately) trashed both Mormons and Catholics on this so-called network of civility for believing that sex is only for providing more “zombie-eyed followers for Jesus”:
At the very end of ABC’s “The View” on Thursday, they turned for advice on infidelity to MTV star/gay activist/sex columnist Dan Savage. (He's in favor of "sexual adventure.") When Savage explained how he and his partner Terry Miller are not exactly monogamous, Barbara Walters jumped in to wonder about the etiquette of this process: What does Savage say to Miller after an infidelity? [See video below. MP3 audio here.]
Walters wasn’t posing as anti-infidelity, considering her tattling about her Edward Brooke affair, but more as a Miss Manners of misbehavior. Savage quipped: “When I’m cheating on my partner, he’s cheating on me at the same time -- at the other end of the same guy.” In the midst of the furor of shock, laughter, and applause, Savage added: “It’s not cheating when everyone agrees!”
On Wednesday's All In show on MSNBC, host Chris Hayes opened the program rejoicing over the "sweet, sweet victory" of the Supreme Court ruling against the federal Defense of Marriage Act, calling it a "watershed moment in the centuries-long struggle for equality in this country."
After playing clips of news coverage of the ruling, Hayes declared:
NPR is lending its imprimatur to one of America's nastiest leftists -- Dan Savage. The sex columnist and author boasted online:
"Ari Shapiro, NPR's White House Correspondent, will be interviewing me about my new book this Sunday night at 7 PM at Town Hall in Seattle. We'll wind up talking about more than just American Savage—I have some questions for Ari about covering the Romney campaign for NPR—and it's sure to be an interesting conversation." Is Shapiro being paid, or is he appearing free of charge because he's a big Dan Savage fan?
Dan Savage really is a disgusting human being.
On Comedy Central’s Colbert Report Monday, the anti-bullying advocate said that Vatican City’s healthcare plan doesn’t include birth control “because altar boys can’t get pregnant” (video follows with transcript and commentary):
