HUH? Ellen Degeneres Audience Loudly Cheers Jason Collins’ Announcement He’s Gay (VIDEO); Don’t Look for Muslim Jason Collins in Egypt, Iran
Apparently, in today’s day and age, it’s a laudable achievement to publicly proclaim that you are having sex with someone of the same gender. At least, you’d come to that conclusion if you listened to Ellen Degeneres’ daytime talk show audience’s loud cheers and applause when she mentioned it. See the video below. So-and-so just cured cancer. Loud silence, crickets chirping. Lackluster NBA player Jason Collins just announced to the world he’s gay. The world erupts in accolades, encomiums, and other over-exuberant back-slapping over someone announcing he has oral and anal sex. Yay, Western civilization. Since when is that “courageous”? And, yet, the media and the rest of the conventional wisdom purveyors call this, “courage.” PUH-LEEZE. For the record, I don’t care what you do behind closed doors. It’s none of my business, so don’t shove it in my face (same goes for far too many heterosexuals who know zero boundaries). But it’s comical the congrats this guy is getting for talking about his sex life, which is all his announcement amounts to. TMI in a sadly TMI-as-the-norm world. The only places where this announcement would truly be remarkable is in Cairo, Tehran, Riyadh, or Tunis. Then, the remarkable thing would be how long until Jasser Al-Khollins was beheaded.
You’ll never hear Ellen Degeneres’ moronic audience ever cheering Israel, where gays have more rights than anywhere in the world. Because Ellen would never want to offend Muslims who hate and want to execute her and her fellow gays. That’s how hypocritical and fraudulent she and most of the rest of her ilk (Elton John is one of the notable exceptions) are. And how vacant her audience is, not to ever think twice about blindly cheering her baloney.
By the way, since we’re now all about giving the world the nitty gritty on our sex lives, why did Jason Collins stop there? Is he too embarrassed and self-hating/homophobic to not also tell us whether he’s the chick or the dude in the relationship? In front or behind? Don’t worry, I’m sure that’s next in our ever-declining society. After all, a porn star–Kim Kardashian–who made an explicit video of herself having sex with rapper Ray J shot to stardom and multi-millions because of it and is now the most admired chick among America’s young women. And Farrah Abraham (a “Christian” Arab) is now the talk of the country, since this star of MTV’s “Teen Mom” has now made a porn movie, “Backdoor Teen Mom.”
Good luck, America. Jason Collins’ announcement is yet another manifestation of an illness (and I’m not referring to homosexuality). And the cancer has metastasized.
Check out my tweets on the topic from yesterday (follow me on Twitter):
Reader Sean M.:
So Jason Collins comes out as gay. I think the universal reaction to that is . . . who? I mean this guy played for the Celtics, the team I’ve rooted for since I was a kid, and I HAD NO IDEA WHO HE WAS! I’ve heard some discussion about the classy way he went about this. I’m not so sure. His statement was “I’m black and I’m gay.” Okay, so if I don’t approve of your lifestyle does that mean I’m racist?
Here’s the thing. I have no problems with what people do in their spare time. Hell, a TON of straight athletes beat their wives/girlfriends/baby-mommas so if the gay athletes aren’t physically abusing their significant other, that might be some progress. But as I’ve seen before, this will likely create a new class of “other” that needs protection/legal action. Or worse. Back in the early 90s, when my alma mater officially sanctioned the campus LGBT group as an official campus organization (after the group claimed they simply wanted to be represented on campus), what happened? They started an action to try to drive ROTC from campus, simply because the military didn’t allow gays to serve openly. It was unsuccessful, but it speaks to the nature of officially recognized victimhood.
No one has yet observed that under the Sharia law of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Mr. Collins would be stoned to death or hung in public. Oh my!, we dare not offend Islam?
