Openly gay NBA player Jason Collins to be guest of Michelle Obama
washingtontimes.com ^ | 01/27/2014 | Ben Wolfgang

Posted on 01/27/2014 7:19:23 AM PST by massmike

Jason Collins, who last year became the first male player in major American team sports to come out as gay, will be one of first lady Michelle Obama’s guests for Tuesday night’s State of the Union address, the White House announced Monday.

Mr. Collins, a former Stanford star who played for six NBA teams, including the Washington Wizards and Boston Celtics, revealed his homosexuality in a Sports Illustrated cover story last spring. Since his announcement, Mr. Collins, 35, has remained a free agent.

It’s really a pretty sad state of affairs when the only real accomplishment one can claim is that they take it up the poop-chute.

Every event in America has to be -centered- on homosexuality. The Russians might be civilizations only hope.

So, technically, he is not a player as he is not a member of an active NBA team.

I surprised the State of the Union and the Superbowl are not hosting a gay wedding.

Yeah...a real badge of honor.

You’d think they could have found someone who actually deserves to be honored. And you’d think that MO wouldn’t really love promoting gaydom due to her husband being a member.

He enjoys the 3-point play off the court as much as on the court.

He could be bench player...contribute some minutes..he’s not bad defensivelythe last guy on the squad...and it’s important for when teams practice...but he’s not that good that it warrants all the hype and chaos that would accompany it..

Same thing with Tebow. Could he be a serviceable backup? Sure, but would it be worth the distractions that come along with it? And I say that as a Tebow fan.

Of course, our “bystander” President has NO knowledge of IRS, NSA, Fast & Furious, Benghazi, etc......but, he does SOMEHOW find out about a middle-of-the-road NBA player (Jason Collins) coming out of the closet and is able to personally give him a phone call within a couple of hours of finding out. That is a microcosm of the world we live in today.....FANTASTIC!!

This kind of stuff does not sit well with ALL of his base..

If we exploited that he was the first BLACK and GAY president he would lose a ton of support from that community.

Esepcially if we point out how much he has done for gays and how little he has done for blacks.

Accomplishments?
Being somewhat skilled at putting a ball through a hoop, and being a Sodomite don't really register high on the list of what I'd consider to be 'accomplishments'. Maybe he was a semi-proficient entertainer.
Hopefully he has some real accomplishments under his belt (none which you or I listed) - but being a good Dad and/or husband certainly aren't any of them...

People of strange, perverse sexual practices tend to hang together. This is either that or Obama and his wife are grasping for the notoriety that will be provided by the news media for having that goofball sit with them.

Yep. Isn’t it thrilling? Just thinking of my American ancestors, who fought for independence, helped settle the rugged west, fought back the scourges of communism and Naziism...

But here in my lifetime, America’s big legacy is normalizing perverted feces-sex and zonking itself out on mind-altering substances. Yay America!

My God, how sick. How degenerate. And how pathetic.

I’ve never understood the wisdom of the health concerns that cause near hysteria (and rightly so) over washing your hands after using the restroom using two pumps of soap and the hottest water you can stand and lathering for a full two minutes then rinsing for two minutes then using a paper towel to open the door so you don’t have to touch the door handle, and yet where’s the concern with homosexuals - both homosexuals and lesbians????
