**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
If you are like many Americans and millions of foreigners, on Sunday Evening your eyes will be glued to the Super Bowl on NBC. But just after the Super Bowl, the Peacock Network’s “American Idol” rip-off, “The Voice” will air. One of the hosts/judges of the show, tattoo-encrusted Adam Levine of the pop group, “Maroon 5,” recently announced his pride in boycotting a Mexican restaurant for contributing to the campaign for California’s Prop 8, the law which declares that marriage is between a man and a woman. (For the record, Levine is NOT Jewish, contrary to popular belief and a Jewish surname. Also, his uncle is extremely liberal journalist Timothy Noah, who is also not Jewish.) Maroon 5 was recently nominated for a Grammy Award for the hit song, “Moves Like Jagger,” and in connection with that, here’s what he told the February 6th issue of People:
ON GRAMMY NIGHT RITUALS:
We used to go to this Mexican restaurant to celebrate after the Grammys. But the place supported the movement to make gay marriage illegal [in California] so we bailed on that.
So much for the “tolerance” of liberals like Levine. They’re all for respecting a “diversity” of opinions, as long as the “diversity” starts at left-wing and ends at far left-wing. You can bet that if Levine announced he boycotted restaurants for opposing Proposal 8, he’d be replaced on “The Voice,” and be running himself ragged in apologies. And while we’re in the midst of the discussion about the “tolerance” of liberals, since it was a Mexican restaurant, it appears he’s intolerant of Latino values. As we know, many Latinos, including Mexicans, are devout Catholics and, therefore, against gay marriage and the gay lifestyle. It wouldn’t be inaccurate to call Levine an anti-Hispanic bigot.
That’s what his restaurant boycott, and lack of the “tolerance” liberals always preach to me, implies.
**** UPDATE: Reader Brian writes:
I wasn’t able to determine from your post what Mexican restaurant was being complained about by that tolerant, socialist intellectual. Could you let me know, so if I’m ever in LA, I can make a point of patronizing the place?
As you’ll note, Levine conveniently leaves out the name of the restaurant because he knows there are plenty of people like reader Brian who would support the place. So, I do not know which restaurant it is. I’ve researched it, and, as I told Brian, I’ve been unable to find out the answer. Brian writes back:
Isn’t it great to see a cowardly person take a principled stand on something?
**** UPDATE #2: Commenter Tammy Summers says the restaurant in question is “El Coyote” on Beverly Blvd. At least two gay news websites (here and here) claim the same. I say, to my non-kosher readers, go support that restaurant to make up for Adam Levine’s idiocy.
