Former ‘SNL’ star Victoria Jackson blasts 'Glee'
Washington Times ^ | March 21, 2011

Posted on 03/21/2011 7:58:28 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

Comedian Victoria Jackson, who attended this years Conservative Political Action Conference, made headlines over the weekend for her Friday column onWorldNetDaily.com, “The Muslims Next Door,” in which she criticized the television program “Glee” for continuously promoting a socially liberal lifestyle.

The latest episode of “Glee” included comedian Kathy Griffin playing a tea party-inspired character and two gay male students sharing a much-anticipated kiss.

I haven’t seen her in years. But there was a time when she was a cutie.

She has a website, but it says her articles are on breitbart.

What’s the matter with her? Didn’t she get the memo that says all comedians, singers, actors, and other entertainers are supposed to be somewhere to the left of Michael Moore in their politics?

Very nice to see and exception to the “RULE”

I don’t watch TV shows or even movies very often, much of that is attributed to male-bashing and other liberal dreams. That said, I saw this ad for Subaru and was floored. The child is gorgeous and the young girl is respectful of her dad, who, shockingly, isn’t shown as a bumbling fool. It is refreshing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qf8OGLqE1s

You must have missed that show last night, where the five ex-con US Marshalls chase crazy fugitives.

They called the bad guy TeaBag.

I’d heard so much about “Glee” that one night it came on and I watched for 5-10 minutes. Unbearable. It is one of the stupidest shows ever. I don’t want to ponder the IQ of its audience.

I can’t watch videos due to bandwidth, but if it’s what I think, with the young girl taking the car out, it makes my husband and I both mist. Our 15 year old just her learner’s permit, and it seems like just yesterday she was 4. I love that commercial.

My family loves that commercial. A very real moment in a parent/child life. Sweet and terrifying. My daughter is nine, so that time is on the horizon. This commercial makes me laugh and worry at the same time.

It seems like every television show targeting teenagers includes homosexual acts and homosexual indoctrination messages.

The first season of Glee featured some terrific music segments. When we tuned in this Fall, the show had taken a sharp turn to the left. They had hooked the kids the first season, took that popularity as an opportunity to indoctrinate them. From the emphasis put on gay characters, one would think at least 50% of the population is gay. Whenever I talk to young teenage females (who seem to be the audience for this show), I just tell them I don’t watch it anymore, that it really went downhill from the first season.

Most of the Subaru “Love” commercials are dreck, but I commented to my squeeze the other night that someone finally hit the proper note with that one. A truly great commercial.

I watched about ten minutes of the Anthony Bourdain show, he was in Nicaragua. A native (I assume) asked him what he knew of Nicaraguan politics. Bourdain said “I remember the Iran-Contra Affair and my disdain for Reagan...” Click.

I love that commercial as well. I have a 12-year-odl daughter so it hits me right in my heart.

I read online that both the girls are the real-life daughters of the guy playing the dad:

As a father, I feel that way every day.

Also the AllState commercial where the long line of teens in cars drive down the highway, seemingly never to return. I think they capture a parents nightmares very well.

I love that commercial too. My daughter just turned 17 in Jan. so we’ve been going for a little over a year on her own. We live about 1 mile from the high school so she drives there and then to dance twice a week in town, about 20 miles away. Lots of one words texts, comprising of Here & Leaving . . . although she seems to be forgetting lately. We got her a cute little fire engine red Ford Escape. The first 6 or so months, she was driving my old Expedition, a real tank, so she was thrilled with the Escape, not too big and not too small for my little goldie locks. :) Oh and I taught her to always drive with her headlights on, even though her vehicle has daylight running lights, I read an article many years ago before even having kids how statistics proved you were more visible/noticeable to other drivers . . . . even though more people do it now, figure it can’t hurt.

Good luck to all you soon to be Mom’s and Dad’s of teen drivers. I’ve got another one coming up too soon, he will turn 14 in May.

"Glee" used to be pretty popular among the hip-young-early-20-somethings I work with. And those who were trying to be in that crowd, as well.

Anyhoo, I heard them talking about it in the breakroom just the other day. Sounds like the show has jumped the shark. Reason? "Too Gay."

There might be hope yet, but I doubt it.

It always bothered me that the Nicaragua part is the part everyone remembers, and, unless you’re a diehard partisan, those memories are usually sour. I could care less if the Contras were funded against Congress’ wishes. Big deal. The bad part was debasing ourselves with Iran and negotiating with terrorists.

You should have stuck it out. Bourdain went to the dump where he watched children dig through trash for food or recyclables. Later he visited a farm where the family told of having of fleeing for the US during the Sandinista years and having their land expropriated. And time after time he goes after Daniel Ortega, who he says now has a personal wealth of $400 million. He talks about how the people are force fed on their "glorious revolution," but that the reality is just another impoverished state with a corrupt leadership.

The thing that's interesting about Bourdain is that you can see how all this travel has actually changed him over the years. It's one thing to be a young guy in the early 1980s, thinking that you're sticking up for oppressed people against "the man." It's another thing as an adult, married with a child, to go see for yourself.

Victoria has pretty much been a conservative. And intelligent.

As for Glee, no kidding they will do this. The head ‘glee coach’ gal is a real life lesbian. The one who played the therapist on “two and a half penises”.

That hip 20-something crowd is definitely their target. And it’s usually ‘hip’ to be all for the gay agenda. To my (admittedly limited) experience, even the otherwise conservative among them identify with that agenda.

Maybe. There's a pretty large number of gay people where I work (well, a half dozen or so....larger number than at past jobs....). I'd count all of them among the "older than 20-somethings, but still trying desperately to fit in and retain their youth" crowd.

When a bunch of gay people look at something and say "That's too gay for me to watch", sez I, the show is in trouble.

Whatever. I've only seen commercials for it on FOX. Mrs WBill watched a couple of shows (because her students were talking about it) and gave up on it pretty quickly. So, it's not like they're counting on my household's viewership, or anything.

And I doubt that the show's writers are surfing FR, and wringing their dainty little hands over our comments. :-)

GLEE is just proof that television shows should have an “H” to go along with the other content letters. This way any show with a H for homosexual content can be vchipped.

you are not old.

It still holds true. Glee has established itself as a homosexual propaganda show. I know of a music teach who discourages her students from watching it because of the no-talent actors and actresses AND because she does not want to discourage the students in her class from real music lessons.

I find it difficult to believe advertisers pay money to have their product placed next to a show with all the negative implications.
