Liberals finally got their scalp and what a lovely one it is. The Donald "fired" his lovely apprentice for what he claimed were contract issues. Out went Miss California USA Carrie Prejean. In comes the celebration from the hateful faithful on the left.
Perez Hilton, the gossip blogger who pretends to be human, was eager to rejoice over Prejean's unemployment.
We hear a lot about tolerance on the left but in reality they hate tolerance . . . What they really want is devotion -- to their beliefs, to their celebrities and to their causes.
Three big photos of the young star were covered with graffiti saying: "Fired," "bye bye," and "show her the door!" And here's how Hilton described Trump: "He has seen the light!"
After weeks of left-wing campaigns to destroy the young woman, Americans have now seen what happens to anyone who dares run up against the gay lobby. The exact same scenario played out with Proposition 8 against gay marriage. They are attacked by the left and the media, which on this issue like so many others, are identical.
And it all happened not because Prejean made a career out of attacking gays. She didn't mock the Matthew Shepherd Foundation or protest at a gay marriage rally. All she did was answer a question posed by Hilton, who was a judge at the Miss USA pageant, about gay marriage. Prejean, who is opposed to the idea, answered honestly. And, Lord knows, we can't have any of that in the media. "I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised," she explained.
The horror! For that she was skewered as "controversial," and everything she had ever done in her life was dragged through the mud; photos, her parents, their divorce, surgery and more, all became fair game for an unfair media.
MSNBC's "news" anchor David Shuster went berserk when Trump first allowed Prejean to keep her crown. "Can I vomit right now? I mean, literally. Can I vomit?" Maybe if he did, his ratings would improve.
Michael Musto of The Village Voice said Prejean was actually a "homophobic man" during an appearance on MSNBC's "Countdown." Musto went on to compare her to the Nazis. "Well, she's dumb and twisted. She's sort of like a human Klaus Barbie Doll"
But Hilton was easily the worst. The openly gay scandal-sheet blogger had started the controversy by asking the initial question. He then responded by attacking her and calling her a "bitch," but really wanted to go lower. "She lost, not because she doesn't believe in gay marriage, Miss California lost because she's a dumb bitch, OK?" He followed with a bogus apology: "I was thinking the c-word and I didn't say it."
This is the same Hilton who runs a Web site where he scrawls dirty pictures on top of photos, shows images of penises where microphones should be or has drawings of semen dripping from the mouths of celebrities. Instead of that kind of bile causing the media to ignore him, major news outlets embracedit.
He went on "Larry King Live" where the host was actually nice to him. He appeared on ABC, CBS, NBC and more. Every outlet gave credence to Hilton's comments attacking a young woman who merely dared to oppose gay marriage.
We hear a lot about tolerance on the left but in reality they hate tolerance. They don't want acceptance either. They want devotion -- to their beliefs, to their celebrities and to their causes. The symbol of the gay rights movement is the rainbow flag or Pride flag. Given how they treat opponents, they should try the skull and crossbones.
