Posted on 03/28/2014 6:54:03 AM PDT by Qbert
Mississippi news station WLOX-TV anchor Dave Elliott on Thursday said that there has been too much coverage of LGBT issues in the news recently, according to Romanesko.
"I'm all for the LGBT community's ongoing fight for equality. I support their fight in every way. But, it seems they've been in the news too much lately. Maybe they should take a short break. Go on gaycation,.. [sic] just for the weekend. Enjoy yourselves!" Elliott wrote on his Facebook page, according to a screenshot published by Romanesko.
WLOX-TV condemned Elliott's comments on the station's Facebook page.
"We are not happy at all with the post or any imagined "free publicity." Dave made this post initially on his personal Facebook page," the station wrote.
"[O]ur station is committed to covering news that happens in our community, and issues important to our viewers - that includes the LGBT community," the station said in an additional comment on its Facebook page.
Not interested in their sexual life. They should all go back in the closet.
I love it! This guy is my new favorite. EVERYBODY AGREES.
Agreed. How long before there is a backlash?
No matter what you do on the stage
Keep it light, keep it bright, keep it gay!
Whether it’s murder, mayhem or rage
Don’t complain, it’s a pain
Keep it gay!

It does seem that we hear about homosexuality, or are exposed to it, constantly.
Aside from the obvious product placement of homosexual characters on TV shows, the news media go out of their way to cover homosexual stories, and they always do so in a sympathetic light. Aside from marriage, the media tell us that homosexuals are discriminated against in St. Patrick’s Day parades, for example, and make it sound as if they are being sent to the back of the bus. The media promote the agenda when they have an opening to do so.
I don’t support their agenda and I’m way, way past this malignant, narcissistic turd worshipping every day while the country continues to sink.
whole lotta noise over 1-2% of the population
The media does what they are told to do.
These deformed characters are determined to beat down the normal people with with reams of their propaganda spewed by the state-run media. The most despicable brainwashing in this regard is directed to children in our schools. It can cost these defenseless victims their lives.
I heard this directed at me as I passed a young fella holding a pen and a clipboard. As I sailed past him, I wondered what 'rights' they could possibly lack. Have I missed something?
Now the poor guy’s going to have to apologize or lose his job. I have to say, I’m with him. For years, I’d check for local news even before checking FR. Now, I no longer even look at philly.com - I just couldn’t take all the gay stories. Every.single.day there was some gay story right there on the front page. Quite frankly, it’s not my business nor do I want to know what any adult unrelated to me does in the privacy of their own bedroom. Why can’t they and their minions shut the hell up about sex?????
Well of course they condemned it. Ya think they want a bunch of protestors out front of the station HQ? Geez, maybe this guy is kinda sick and tired of being forced to promote things he doesn’t agree with. Maybe the backlash will be as strong as that which Phil Robertson had.(Like Phil cared. At all.) Seemingly forgetful of the fact that PC Avenue is a one way street and we’re drivin’ the wrong way. Your opinions don’t count. Only theirs. Sounds fair. Right? Uh, maybe not. But they don’t care.
In the closet or in the crosshairs.
Good for Dave Elliott!
I commented on my facebook page a few weeks ago that NPR seems to think that it’s listeners are waiting every day with baited breath for the lates homosexual news. For several days in a row one of their “morning edition” stories was homosexual related.
Got a lot of agreement.
And they next day they did it again.
Focusing on such an obscure issue exposes an obvious agenda. Their goal is to desensitize the population. For many people it is working, sadly.
“gays” have the same rights as everybody else, no they want special rights just for them
it’s called a propaganda drive.
the constant stream of bs is part of desensitization
the point is to make you think it’s ‘normal’
Sorry, but giving up on your right to object what they do in private is the reason why you have no standing now to object to what they do in public.
I am tired of hearing community this, community that, black community, gay community, & all of the other communities. I thought progressives wanted one big happy community under a big one world tent. All they do is split us up into separate communities. We here at FR know what they really want & it ain’t good for our country.
I attend a tech conference every year. It’s held in various locations. A few years ago it was in SF. I used to go to SF and the Bay Area frequently but I hadn’t been in SF in a long time. It seemed like every time I went out I was approached by someone wanting me to sign some sort of pro homosexual petition. Told one guy to put his pen back in his pants.
How come you never hear the term “Conservative Community”?
Gaycation. Love it! LOL
"For years, Id check for local news even before checking FR. Now, I no longer even look at philly.com - I just couldnt take all the gay stories. Every.single.day there was some gay story right there on the front page."
Yep. I swear, I wanted to see some sports news on a MSM news feed a few weeks ago... and nine out of ten stories they had were about Sam the gay football player. It's ridiculous.
Because they demand you applaud and worship their destructive lifestyle and exhibitionistic behavior. They can’t keep it in the bedroom, they’ve got to constantly parade themselves in every possible way. Political correctness and pressure removed their behavior as mentally ill from the medical books, but there is simply no other way to explain people whose needs, wants and desires run as they do with them.
WLOX covers the coastal area of MS, AL and these areas are pretty conservative in their politics. The station owners better tread lightly (as it were)on their apology over kill. Folks are sick of the gay agenda being shoved down their throats (as it were)
Probably because we are like herding cats. We all pick on each other and beat each other up a lot.
It would have been better if he used the correct word, homosexual, instead of “gay”.
I watch Walking Dead and was thinking, wow, there has been no recognition of homosexuals on this show. Then, sure enough, the last episode included a girl who talked about her homosexuality... during the APOCALYPSE.
Yeah, talking about homosexuality would trump survival in the apocalypse.
"I am tired of hearing community this, community that, black community, gay community, & all of the other communities."
That's all the left has- identity politics. Their policies have failed every time they have been tried, and so they need to distract people on emotionally-charged issues.
haha. Love it go on a gaycation! hearer here! or hear! hear! I be there are a lot of gay people that feel the same way.
I have conditioned myself to substitute the word ‘commune’ every time one of these pillow-biters uses the word ‘community.’
Makes it much more succinct and accurate.
I think the backlash has been here, but as you mentioned not visible to the public as of yet. It’s coming however. Another reason I think some gay people wish these people would shut up and get back to the real world of day to day privacy and boundaries.
You may have seen it yesterday but this author agrees with you.
Pertinent quote: “As a domestic radical, divisiveness is his natural weapon. Obama plays on fragmented identities, assembling coalitions to wage war against some phantom white heteronormative patriarchy consisting of a middle class barely able to pay its bills.
Its governing by terrorism. The bombs are ideological. The objective is a constant state of war.
The war that never ends has been good to Obama. Its various clashes have given him two terms and very little media scrutiny. They have given him a post-American army of identity groups with few mutual interests except radical politics and government dependency.”
"I commented on my facebook page a few weeks ago that NPR seems to think that its listeners are waiting every day with baited breath for the lates homosexual news. For several days in a row one of their morning edition stories was homosexual related."
And to think that ten years ago most NPR listeners were oh-so-concerned with the "rights" of Islamic Gitmo detainees when it came to bashing Bush... conveniently forgetting the fact that the terrorists they were defending not only "hated gays", but would kill people they found out were gay...
The problem is that he supports the sodomite agenda....just tired of hearing them gripe.
Ever since the Psychiatric associations (under political pressure) redefined sexual perversion as normal, they have been handing us a dog s#!t sandwich and telling us it is ham on rye, and we better accept it. If we don’t they will jam it down our throats. We know what it is and we won’t accept it.
I think you recently mentioned an approaching backlash on this subject.
The harder they true to make it normal, that harder it is going to be for people to accept.
There’s a giant billboard on the main drag of my city here in WA state, where one guy looks like he’s about to playfully bite the ear of the guy he’s holding from behind. It’s promoting Obamacare for the homo set.
My 13 year old daughter looked up at it, shuddered, and got in the car. This after the relentless onslaught of ‘Gay is OK’.
My community is a communion.
The library had perhaps 150 current issues of media communications research journals on display, with several back issues behind each one in the racks. Most research journals put the table of contents on the front cover.
Guess what the great majority of every cover I scanned contained? One, two, or three articles on homosexuality, out of ten or twelve articles. Why gays are in the media, why gays are not in the media, how gays are depicted in the media, how media affects gays, why media should do more and better for gays, and on and on.
Neither a digital search, the card catalog or my eyeballing turned up any serious research on what actually happens to the heart rate, the pupils, or the brain waves during various types of media stimuli on a general population, or on any demographic at all, not even gays. This is the state of higher education and well-funded scientific research.
HAHAHAHA! Me too.
Go away and don’t come back. You are not loved, wanted or needed.
Sodomites are mentally ill.
All gay all the time. I am sick of hearing about it.
IT'S THAT DAMN SIMPLE. ANYTHING ELSE IS WRONG
I see this phrase a lot...”privacy of their own bedroom”. As you alluded, it doesn’t stay in the bedroom. Widespread acceptance of this behavior is destroying the most stable, productive, revenue enhancing, security promoting, government reducing, security protecting force in our country or any country...I am speaking of the traditional family.
Thank you. You and I are in the minority here at FR. I used to have this as my tagline...
“Yes, as a matter of fact, what you do in the privacy of your bedroom IS my business.”
It would really piss off the liberals here. But the fact of the matter is; libertarians are as much to blame for the sorry state of affairs we now face as the democrats.
(See current tagline)
