Talk show host storms off set after heated discussion over Michael Sam's kiss with boyfriend
The Blaze ^ | May. 14, 2014 7:38pm | Oliver Darcy

A Texas talk show host stormed off set Tuesday after a heated discussion was ignited when she expressed disapproval of coverage showing Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend.

“Can we just agree that this was an opportunity to make news?” KTXD-TV’s “The Broadcast” host Amy Kushnir asked.

“He has every right to do what he wants, that’s not my issue,” she added. “I just don’t want it in my face.”

“Well, then maybe you don’t need to see romantic comedies or when people kiss on television,” one of the co-hosts shot back.

“Why does she not have the right to say what she means without being slandered?” another co-host countered.

Moments later, Kushnir gathered her belongings and stormed off the set.

“I’m done,” she said.

I didn't know that you could come out as a "black man"? I thought that was pretty self explanatory. For the last time, being a homosexual is not the same as being a black man! Now, if you don't tow the "homosexuality is great" bandwagon, you are a racist. I call BS! I'm tired this crap. I would have left the conversation too. I would have had to in order not to slug somebody!

Enormous numbers of cultural idiots these days attempt to equate homosexuals kissing on television with heterosexuals kissing; it is very much NOT the same.

But try to explain that here in modern-day Sodom.

so let me get this straight.. to guys can kiss on TV and we’re suppose to take that...

But some guy can’t tell his girlfriend what he thinks in a private conversation and keep his b-ball team?

I am starting to think I should take my kids and hide on a mountain top. The country is almost completely insane.

I don’t disagree with your premise, but frankly, I don’t want to see icing and cake licking even from a couple like Tom Brady and Giselle…..let alone these two.

Its what the Homosexual left is doing to fundamentally change this country..they are attempting to make homosexuality the “New Normal” next will come having sex with young boys, that will be the next thing they will want “Legalized.” I was flipping through the channels last night and I see that freakazoid Don Lemon interviewing some rapper who was friends with Donald Sterling..he also taped Sterling’s conversation with him..Lemon asked him “Did Sterling give his consent to record him?” and the Rapper said “NO.” this country is officially insane where you can have someone go on Live TV and ADMIT to committing a FELONY and nothing happens..absolutely nothing

Two men kissing is SICK. It disgusts me. No society should allow these images be seen by young children, either. There’s enough to confuse them about, let alone disgusting abnormal sick vile behavior.

Tebow was black listed because he was to controversial as a Christian

meanwhile, mikey, the ‘courageous fag’, is celebrated for his bravery... and isn’t at all controversial

what a load (pardon the pun)

just remember... if you watch the NFL, attend any of their games or participate in any fantasy leagues, you’re supporting the homo agenda.

the only power we have is with our wallets (until they start confiscating those)

Whenever they show it I just change the channel..but this is what the media is doing..they think if they show it enough people will become “used” to it and not care. It makes my stomach turn every time they show his face and I know what is about to happen. Little kids should NOT be seeing that..kissing is between a man and a woman..PERIOD..not two men, not two women..but its what the progressives want to do to this country..the fundamental change they have had in mind for generations, to destroy marriage as we know it

The Problem is the Homo Mafia thinks they have everybody convinced that homosexuality is the same as heterosexuality. They haven’t. Most heterosexuals probably got a little nauseous watching Sam liplock with his boyfriend. I know I did.

the only power you truly have is your wallet.

turn off the tv. but if you must have it on, take note of the advertisers supporting the homo agenda and stop buying their products

It really is like 1984 isn’t it! You can’t even have a conversation in the privacy of your own home without fear of reprisal and people reporting back to the “authorities” with your statements. We’re on a very slippery slope right now. People need to wake up!

Yup! You are so right regarding Tim Tebow! Were any of the NFL football players suspended and fined for criticizing him on Twitter for being so Christian? Um, no. Total BS!

I think the velvet mafia knows that their lifestyle is not going to be accepted despite their campaign! That is exactly why they are resorting to their “no tolerance” policy. Accept their lifestyle or lose your job, get fined, etc. Somebody needs to put a stop to it or else it’s going to get completely out of hand!

I thought tape recording phone conversations without the person’s consent was illegal? Yet people are admitting to it left and right on national TV and instead of arresting that person who ad ADMITTING IT, the media wants to hear the tape..what next, taking posts off message boards and using that to bring a person down too..that is what will happen next..get the IP address info from people who post messages that don’t fit with the left’s agenda and they will use that to destroy people too..this country IS changing, or has already changed, and NOT for the better..its like living in North Korea

I just turn it off. it’s a aversion to me. Don’t want to see it. Any channel it’s on I change it. any discussion or lgbt discussions here I ignore. on days where it seems do dominate free republic, I go somewhere else.

I know exactly What you mean. Sterling’s ex girlfriend should be prosecuted but she won’t be. It’s a sick crazy world we live in and yes, there is such a thing as the “thought police”. Literally! Scary scary stuff!

"No kidding! We are basically living in Roman times! There is no reasoning with people."

The other day, a Freeper (can't recall the name) said it's so bad, Caligula would pack up and go home. I laughed, but I felt sick at the same time, because it's the truth.

The Rapper last night on CNN admitted to taping Sterling without his consent..Lemon had NO issue with it, asked it and moved on..so its now cool to commit felonies and admit it on TV without any consequence..what next..admitting to be a murderer and getting away with it..oh wait that’s already been done..Hillary Clinton/Obama

I haven’t watched television is about 15 years. It is rather liberating not hearing 5 minutes of commercials, for each 20 minutes of my life.

I always watch both sides...I will not comment on their depravity without first reading it or seeing it.

I am more than a little outspoken when it comes to my conservative opinions....it has worked internally, my three college graduated sons are EXTREMELY conservative. Society, however seems to ignore me..I am 75 years old and the same people are in poverty are still there when I was a kid in Milwaukee and they still vote the same...pathetic

“...this country is officially insane where you can have someone (black person) go on Live TV and ADMIT to committing a FELONY and nothing happens..absolutely nothing”

What about a country where a black hate group commits a federal hate crime caught on video, and the black AG dismisses the case and says “don’t disparage my people”?

The USA owes those NAZIs executed at Nuremburg an apology.

I DVR my shows I want to watch. then FF through the commercials. it’s rare if ever i watch commercials.. I suspect commercials will start to go away and you will see more product placement ads in the shows (as if there where not enough of those already)

That twit on the left kept saying it was racist to not like him kissing his boyfriend? As a woman, I am ashamed that sadly, that simplistic emotional line of thinking is prevailing in my gender.

Sexual orientation is not a race. Her crying racism just absolutely infuriated me. Despite what the LGBT crowd would like to believe, sexual orientation is a choice. You cannot choose to be black or white. Talk about trying to change reality by force! They think that if you just call not believing that homosexuality is normal racism, it will stick. Watching that clip was torture for me. God help those two poor women that had to endure the stupidity of the other two!
