Shep Smith Takes a Dig at Chick-fil-A Holiday (FreeRepublic referenced)
The Boston Edge ^ | August 6, 2012 | Jason St. Amand

Fox News’ Shep Smith, the host of the cable news channel’s primetime "Studio B," seemed to take issue with the controversial Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, which was created by former Gov. Mike Huckabee -- a fellow Fox News anchor -- and turned out to be one of the company’s best days regarding sales.

Smith, who has stated that he supports marriage equality in the past, was able to cleverly slam the fast-food chain and the politician without directly mentioning them, Mediaite reported.

"It’s National Badminton Day," he said on his show. "Let’s forget National Day of Intolerance. Let’s just stay with badminton."

Smith did not go on to elaborate on his comments.

Comments on the far right-wing site Free Republic were typical: Commenters made not-so-subtle references to longstanding rumors that Smith is gay.

"Poor Shep. Americans caused him to smear his eye liner today," was a typical comment."Shep is a$$ loving tosser. Who cares what he thinks? That little faggot is one of the main reasons I quit watching FOX," another wrote.

Smith’s sexuality has been questioned for years. Kevin Naff, the longtime editor of the Washington Blade, alleged that Smith hit on him at gay bar in New York City a few years ago.

"Smith once chatted me up in a New York City gay piano bar, bought me drinks, and invited me back to his place," Naff said, according to an account on the blog site Pam’s House Blend. "When I declined, he asked me to dinner the next night, another invitation I politely refused. We sat at the bar chatting and drinking martinis until 3 a.m., our conversation interrupted only when he paused to belt out the lyrics to whatever showtune was being performed,"

In April 2011, Out magazine published its "Power 50" list that ranked the most powerful gay men and lesbians. The publication placed Smith in the number six spot and featured Anderson Cooper, then still in the closet, and Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, who has never formally come out.

After President Obama announced his support for gay marriage, Smith said on his show that the president is on the "right side of the 21st century." He then asked his colleague Bret Baier if the Republican Party would campaign against marriage equality "while sitting very firmly, without much question, on the wrong side of history on it," according to the Huffington Post.

Smith’s comments seemed to deeply upset conservative radio personality Rush Limbaugh as he condemned the broadcaster for his remarks, the Huffington Post pointed out.

"Shep, where has the issue won?" Limbaugh said. "Where has the issue been victorious, Shep, outside your house? Where has the issue won an election? What state? Tell me where it’s happened."

Shep married Virginia Donald in 1987 but divorced in 1993. They had no children.

He's gayer than a barbershop quartet.

Only typical since the pro-gay crowd migrated to that pro-gay cesspool for zotted misfits.

He may not be gay. He may just wish he had been born a woman.

Whoa, there! My uncle sang in a barbershop quartet. If you called him gay, he would have beaten the living daylights out of you. LOL

When did barbershop become popular? And what was that decade called?

Shep may or may not be a homo. He is unquestionably a left wing zealot whose very limited talent is better suited for Current TV than a major network.

Shep is from WSVN in Miami home to Rick Sanchez as well as many other leftist drama queens. I interned there for a bit at Channel 7 back in the 90s when Shep was there...he was funny as hell but everyone knew he was gay.

I didn’t mean to imply that he isn’t a homo. My point was he is a left wing clown with very little talent. He certainly is not an impartial reporter of the news.

LOL. Point taken.

My uncle was a big burly Marine, fought in World War Ii, had at least one medal that I know of. He sang in a quartet for years, almost till the day he died. Made a few extra bucks performing at nursing homes and senior citizen centers. He was good at it too. I on the other hand sing like a rusty gate.

Certainly not - - he's an entertainer.

The morality of these homosexuals-—for centuries-—has always reduced human beings to the level of the sewer and destroyed every civilization which celebrated the evil acts which always included pederasty.

Shame on Shep for advocating such degrading actions-—and trying to glorify such dysfunctional, unnatural acts for “children”. Sure —if he had any sons—he wouldn’t want them degrading and debasing not only their own bodies, but that of others—or would he join them. Such a sick, pathetic, EVIL worldview.

Shep—The Founders said civilization would collapse without Virtue. Sodomy is a Vice. It was always illegal in the US until Marxists judges removed the laws to destroy our civil society. Think again— what ugly acts you stand for and repent. They lust for the young beautiful boys-—in all homsexual cultures whether Japan, China, The Greeks/Romans/Persians/Celts/ American Indians—Tibetans-—it is ALWAYS about the BOYS!!!!! It is a learned behavior.

Anyone who supports homosexual “Rights” is supporting child abuse and pure evil.

I wonder if he was forced to make pro-gay anti-conservative statements to avoid being blackmailed by the people who see the REAL him at the NYC nightclubs.

“I can barely watch THE FIVE because of the MEANNESS of Bob Beckel.”

I was just thinking about Beckel on The Five this morning. Bob is a disgusting jerk, but I think it’s good that he’s in this group — as a useful idiot.

1. Libs might tune in to see Beckel. (And libs need to tune in.)

1. His potty mouth, low-class, trailer-trash, behavior is such a contrast to the generally classy other four that libs might be able to draw good conclusions. He focuses on the women he’s “known”, his alcoholism, his drug abuse, etc., and seems to relish all those things. Plus, he paid a hooker with a personal check; how stupid is that?

One thing that bothers me is that Beckel claims to be a born-again Christian, and that Cal Thomas was the one who led him to receive Christ. Obviously, his “conversion” didn’t take (”Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them”). His claim of Christianity makes us look bad, and sure isn’t helping Cal Thomas.

As a friend of mine would say: “He’s as gay as Dick’s hatband.” I never knew what it meant, but it sounded good.
