Miss California 1, Perez Hilton 0
FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 04/21/2009 6:22:56 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

How bad a representative does Perez Hilton make for the pro gay-marriage cause? Even the Today show, normally a reliable bastion of political correctness on social issues, seemed more sympathetic to Miss California when both were interviewed this morning. Making his case against Carrie Prejean, Perez proffered a pastiche of personal insult and intellectual incoherence. In contrast, Miss California took the high road, putting personal integrity ahead of temporal achievement.

Hilton was in a hole even before the live interview began. Today ran a clip of Hilton’s comments from yesterday in which he called Prejean a “dumb b—ch.”

When Perez appeared, questioned by Matt Lauer, his answers were an inconsistent jumble. When Lauer asked if “we’re ushering in a new era . . where these contestants are going to be subjectively judged on political and moral and religious beliefs,” Hilton replied “I hope not.”

But just a few minutes later Hilton declared that “Miss USA is not a person that’s politically incorrect.”

So which is it?

Hilton was in a hole? I’d say that’s a bad choice of wording. It also seems unlikely as he has “Power Bottom” written all over him.

I really don’t think the fix is in on this one, but, Perez Hilton just gave Carrie Prejean more positive publicity than she ever would have gotten by winning this dumb contest. So, good for her.

Libtards never stand up to scrutiny. He used his position as a judge to trumpet his personal agenda and when he found someone who followed her own conscience, he resorted to personal attacks and name calling. What a loser.

The real news should be Miss North Carolina’s regurgitated pabulum answer about tax money going to education and welfare. Where’s that in the Constitution? How about providing for National Defence.. HELLLLLOOOOOOO!?!

I’m sure Miss NC made her teachers very proud. She’s everything I’d expect.

Puke.

“Carrie Prejean more positive publicity than she ever would have gotten by winning this dumb contest. So, good for her.”

Agreed, and Carrie herself said as much to Lauer, observing that she wouldn’t have been there this morning talking to him if she had won.

If anyone is a dumb B it is Perez Hilton..The media has a lot to do with what he said since all the Fags think the whole country is behind their sick relationships from reading the liberal news..The same question should have been ask of ever one of the contestants and then we could see who won or lost..since this country is still more Christian than the liberal media wants you to believe..Sick little Fag needs to be sent away to a mental institute.. or an island so they can't reproduce

"I’m sure Miss NC made her teachers very proud. She’s everything I’d expect."

Expecting beauty pageant contestants to be your "rough men willing to wreck violence upon those who would harm our nation" is setting the bar a bit high, and is perhaps symptomatic of someone who is underachieving and afraid to stand up for such principles yourself.

I don't expect Shakespear when I go see a Hollywood action fest.

I don't expect Michelangelo when I pay a drifter to paint my barn.

At some point in life, you've either got to have realistic expectations of others...or else live in complete frustration.

California does not deserve her. She needs to come to a pro-America state like Tennessee. I say this as a former Californian.

OK, I must admit that I don’t know who the heck Perez Hilton is or what he has done with his life that is noteworthy. Clearly, I haven’t missed much. Nevertheless, I saw this segment on the Today show this morning and was astounded at the complete inconsistency in his arguments. On one hand, Miss USA shouldn’t be political and yet on the other, he asks a deliberately loaded political question. All I can say is, “Dude, go get a real job in the real world.”

Good grief, it’s a freakin’ beauty pageant. Since when is a beauty pageant a referendum on the politics of the moment? I thought it was all about the swimsuit competition anyway?

Mainly because people like Perez like to stir things up wherever they go. Not like creating a party like atmosphere, more like always looking for trouble and starting it however they can.

Instead of getting into the positive spirit of things, that dipwit decided to ask a loaded question and stir up trouble.

This hilton is a homosexual and has revealed more about the mental instability that accompanies this illness than I could ever state.

Anyone who would let a homosexual have access to their children after viewing this video is a liberal or worse.

We should make a big deal about this. KABC in Los Angeles is making a big deal.

Perez peddles gissip and sleeze. Why was he ever chosen for the job.

Was the girl better off to LIE? Apparently, avccording to liberals, yes.

What amazes me is that a zero like this "Perez Hilton" person has achieved a measure of fame. For what? Is he a talented actor, singer or dancer? No. He's gained fame and made a lot of money by outing gay famous people. Shows what he's made of - he enjoys embarrassing and intimidating people.

He's merely a silly, bitter little man, that somehow, some people give a rat's patoot what he thinks and what spews out of hit mouth.

I’d love to see miss NC step down or be forced out by a scandal, and then see miss CA ascend to the throne-that little fag would sure have his panties in a bunch.

I'm waiting for the owners of the pageant to weigh in....if ever. This affair certainly has to have a negative effect on the reputation of the show which may be lasting. Whether or not it was a rigged decision is unimportant....it now has the APPEARANCE of that happening. A lot of money is at stake for the owners, organizers and sponsors of the event. What are THEY saying?

I wonder if Trump is still a part owner of this pageant. Wonder what he thinks of this flaming homosexual "judge" who's still running his mouth off and directly affecting the pageant's bottom line.

Politics aside, this flap is not over yet.....always follow the money trail.

I really don't care one way or another as I never watch Miss America, Miss USA, Miss World, Miss Budweiser or Miss Piggy. There's enough to worry about one's own bottom line let alone Trump's or that of anyone else who's involved in the flesh trade.

Hilton is a “friend” of Donald Trump and Trump owns the pagent. He appeared on Trump’s show “Celebrity Apprentice” recently and “judged” a viral blog contest.

He has no relevance. Many professional gay people I know consider him a complete and utter embarrassment.

And thanks, Perez, for giving the Yes on 8 people yet another wonderful soundbite to use if you twits ever bring this up again. You might ask Gavin Newsome how his arrogant comments, used in a Yes on 8 ad, turned many opinions and got many people to vote Yes on 8.

I've never heard of "Perez Hilton" until this flap came up and I just googled him to see who or what he is. Apparently he 'famous' for being famous and a celebrity because he hangs with celebrities. And has some crappy Gay Blog where he outs those in Hollywood -- Jodie Foster, or the MSM like -- Anderson Cooper.

Sooooooooo. Why was he even picked as a judge for the Miss USA 2009 pageant???

Oh and 'Perez Hilton' isn't even his name. It's Mario Armando Lavandeira, Jr.

Miss California won everything in my book. Why was this gay activist even a judge and why did he let his personal feeling get in the way of his job? This right here tells us that Prop 8 was the right thing to do.

Apparently Mr. Hilton doesn’t understand the meaning of the word “politics”. The last election in California shows that Miss California is politically correct, not him.

The ugly, angry, self-loathing left will “get” her. They own colleges, most major employers, most TV stations and newspapers. They won’t forget that a beautiful, kind, tolerant normal person said something the left doesn’t like.

As these things usually do, Ms. California will be so much more famous than if she had actually won the damn thing. If her opinions do not "fit in" with the pageant now, as the Hilton and the producers are saying, it's time for us to just stop watching. I heard that clip over and over yesterday, and it sounded like the audience was cheering when she said what she said, am I wrong? All of a sudden, Hilton said the audience overwhelmingly did not agree with her. Liberals lie because they are NEVER CALLED ON IT.

I think it's time to start writing Trump and the advertisers. Let Trump have a hard time putting this thing on.

By the way, this gal had better not sit down to coffee with this pig Hilton...keep him the non-entity that he is.

The bar’s height is not set by us but by Judaeo-Christian principles on which this Nation was founded.

The very existence and memory of that bar is what some strive to purge.

None of us can reach it consistently.

But for the grace of God we all fail.

Nonetheless, the bar is there and with that grace, we can and must both advocate and strive.

The guy who subs for KABC radio this morning says that he lives around the same neighborhood as Perez and they both get coffee at the same place.

He said Perez comes in all the time with the same clothes on looking like they have never been washed. He says his hair is matted and greasy every time he foes out.

And that Perez goes out to get his coffee while wearing pink bunnyslippers that are black with grime. He walks over pavement and asphault in the slippers.

He’s a pig ... and he looks it.

Perez specializes in “outing” gays who want to remain anonymous.

I think people should do a little ambush interviewing of the Donald and ask him what he thinks about all this. Then we can all watch Miz Hilton get thrown under the bus.

Miz Hilton says she knows a lot of celebrities, but the real class acts, serious artists want nothing to do with “her.” After all this, only the Hollywood psychotic fringe will be giving him the time of day, so look for him to start showing up with Janeane Barfalo on his arm, since she’s the only one who can make him look human. They’ll both be lucky to be invited to the opening of a door....

You, Perez, are a coward and a bully! What demon must have possessed those pageant officials when they appointed you as a judge of femininity? You are an inauthentic pretender of a man who obviously believes that for a woman to be considered worthy of such an honor as is the Miss America crown she must subjugate her principles and opinions to the mojo of Modern Deconstructive Thought. She should have been untrue to herself and spread wide to the New Sexual Dominance that is the homosexual political mind-rape! Does she not know her place? How dare she not lay down and enjoy the thrust of this brave, hard new world’s sodomite zeitgeist. Her calmly spoken resistance to the inevitability of the glorious coming mandatory acceptance of all things queer, her fighting off of the usurpation of traditional mores must be a damned lie! We all know the bitch wants it!

You are an insufferable, disgusting waste of protoplasm. We who oppose queer marriage are decidedly non-phobic of your vile habits and unnatural acts or your pomposity or your flamboyances. We see those traits for what they are, symptoms of a confused and perversely self-indulgent beast with a twisted psyche. And your demanding tantrums and immature rhetoric, thrown at a moral society unwilling to bestow you and your same-sex obsessed gang members with a title for which you cannot qualify does not terrify in the least. What should be feared is that such people, adolescent and proud, spiteful, violent and emboldened, are at the metaphorical gates of the human kingdom and are poised to breach them, that that which God has joined will be rent asunder and deflowered in the name of a love that won‘t shut up!

Miss California was on Neil Cavuto's show a few minutes ago. She was extremely gracious, and said she felt sorry for Perez Hilton and would pray for him.

She told Cavuto she didn't hate him, she loved him despite his actions. She also said that she felt God had come to her aid when she was asked that question.

Very impressive, and a demonstration of integrity and faith that I haven't seen in quite a while.

Actually, he’s becoming more and more successful. Madonna made him a part of her most recent tour. And there has been talk of TV for him.

I don’t think he’ll go away without some protests. That’s why I think it is important to stress that Miss California was penalized becaused she told the TRUTH.

If she had lied, she would have won!

There is a poll on Yahoo at this time on this subject.

Our side is pounding the gay butt boys like Hilton.

http://js.polls.yahoo.com/quiz/quiziframe.php?poll_id=44881

Go to the site and vote to pound more shame on the truly ugly/two ton gay butt boy, Hilton.

Q. Carrie Prejean caused a stir on the Miss USA stage when she said marriage should only be between a man and a woman. Judge Perez Hilton and others in the pageant slammed the response, which may have cost her the crown. On the talk-show circuit Prejan has stood by her response and garnered praise from opponents of same-sex marriage.

What do you think? Does Prejean deserve criticism or praise for her response?

She should be criticized. That sort of prejudice should never be tolerated. 11%
She should be praised for expressing her opinion. 87%
Not sure/No opinion. 1%
