You saw it too? I couldn’t believe it. I wasn’t paying attention, then my wife tells me to look, because of course it’s notable that they were being respectful to the troops. The applause wasn’t too noticeable (and far less than later one when the guy made his dark side comment). So I’m like, well at least they did something nice. Then I hear the people who won the award talking about the movie and this woman is crying about how important it was to make this movie about same sex marriage or something. I’m like WHAT?! They had the military introduce an award given to a movie about homosexuality (knowing the don’t ask don’t tell Clinton policy), NO WAY! Then they follow up with anti-Iraq war anti WOT documentaries. Man. Just another chapter in a long story.
Well why not? The US government holds homosexuals up to be a protected class of people. They are held up in a special place where they get special rights that go above and beyond what the rest of us are given. I am surprised by nothing anymore.
