Early Thursday morning on "Morning Joe," the left-wing Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski did exactly what I feared the media would do after Beck's announcement: they trashed conservatives who disagreed with Beck as lacking in compassion.

    I admit that I am truly baffled and quite irked by the decision of Premiere Radio Networks to hire Senator John McCain's daughter, Meghan McCain, to host the nationally syndicated radio talk show, America Now. I'm baffled, because America Now is carried on conservative talk radio stations, and Meghan McCain is not a conservative (more on that in a moment), so conservative talk show listeners will tune out each time she signs on.

But that five-syllable word has never been more loaded, more deliberately used and, to the ears of many gays and lesbians, more pejorative. ď ĎHomosexualí has the ring of Ďcoloredí now, in the way your grandmother might have used that term, except that it hasnít been recuperated in the same way,Ē said George Chauncey, a Yale professor of history and an author who studies gay and lesbian culture.

    GLAAD is the Gay and Lesbian Alliance against Defamation. The OIC is the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation, a 56-state organization which constitutes the largest voting bloc in the UN. At first glance, the two groups would not seem to have much in commonóparticularly when one considers the general antipathy toward homosexuals in the Muslim world.Upon further consideration, however, there are some interesting similarities between the two groups. For example, both are in the anti-defamation business. So as not to exclude bisexuals and transgenders, GLAAD no longer uses the full title, but its missionóto protect the gay community from...

The first in which he continues his crusade to support GLAAD, comparing Russia's law protecting minors from homosexual propaganda to the Holocaust, and blowing up incendiary comments made by a Russian actor for no apparent reason other than to help push the narrative of permanent victimhood that the homosexual lobby thrives on. Here, we can be treated to Glenn engaging in left wing obfuscation more likely to be used by Al Sharpton than any...

After all the failed subsidized green companies, the postponement of the Keystone Pipeline, the radical restrictions of new gas and oil leasing on federal lands, and the promises for radical climate-change legislation curtailing carbon energy use, the United States nevertheless seems awash in old energy.

    Unpleasant video footage of reinstated Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson has emerged in which he appears to advise young men to marry underage girls because they are easier to control. In the 2009 Sportsmen's Ministry talk, Robertson, 67, who began dating his wife when she was 14-years-old, advises his audience, 'You got to marry these girls when they are 15 or 16. They'll pick your ducks' - which is a literal reference to removing dead bird's feathers. Warming to his stereotypical redneck theme, Robertson, who was suspended from the A&E hit for nine days earlier this month for homophobic comments,...

    Michelle Obama's Mirror | 4-22-2013 | MOTUS
    After last week, Iím really GLAAD to have this opportunity to change the subject. And that opportunity was presented by what I guess are the monthly GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) Media Awards, this time in Los Angeles. Sort of ironic that they were held the same week as the latest Islamic Extremist (am I allowed to say that anymore?) bombing; as we all know how tolerant the ďreligion of piecesĒ is of homosexuality. Anyway, guess who was there? To accept an award. Did you guess former President Bill Clinton? ďIím so glaad to be here!Ē Me neither....

    <p>Madonna has never been a stranger to controversy, and she once again dipped her toe into those waters at last nightís GLAAD Awards, where she was presenting an award to Anderson Cooper.</p> <p>Dressed in an oversized Boy Scout uniform, Madonna took the organization to task for its policy that bans gay people from joining. ďI wanted to be a Boy Scout, but they wouldnít let me join,Ē she said during a 10-minute speech. ďI think thatís (messed) up. I know how to build a fire. I can pitch a tent Ö most importantly, I know how to scout for boys.Ē</p>

    The advocacy group backed a petition started by Will Oliver, a 20-year-old gay Eagle Scout, that calls on Nat Geo to air a disclaimer clarifying the network's views before each episode of its new series, "Are You Tougher than a Boy Scout." It debuts this spring. "That National Geographic would brush aside countless gay teens suffering at the hands of the BSA, shrugging off injustice as just another Ďpoint of view,' is irresponsible," GLAAD president Herndon Graddick said in a statement. "By airing this program, National Geographic is providing support and publicity to an organization that harms young people...

    Exclusive: Joseph Farah rips 'gay gestapo' for bullying joking player into contrition Are Mom and apple pie next? Those may be the next targets of the homosexual fascists Ė who are like the anti-American poofy sect of the Taliban. Itís not enough to institute speech codes in colleges and universities. Itís not enough to chill free speech in the media. Itís not enough to shamelessly parade their sexuality in front of Americaís children on the streets, in schools and on television. Now the crude, vulgar, name-calling, arrogant pink-shirt gestapo is going after baseball and other American sports. Hereís the latest...

    ALEXANDRIA, La. (BP) -- "The New Normal" is a television situation comedy set to debut on NBC in September. According to advance reports, the premise of the program is a woman becomes a surrogate mother so a male homosexual couple can start a family. Let me say that "new" might be applicable in the title. "Normal," though, is a stretch. Whether you use any of the various synonyms for the word normal or employ it as an adjective or a noun, one thing is certain: Two men using a surrogate mother to produce a child is anything but normal. First,...

    Like many others, I will not be able to go to a Chik-Fil-A tomorrow to show support for them choosing to stand up for traditional marriage. Actually, that really bothers me. When a business owner is willing to stand up to the radical left, I feel it is critical to support them! So, I went to their website to see if I could order a gift card online tomorrow, I want to see tomorrow be their biggest day of sales ever! So, while I couldn't find a gift card, I found their store that has lots of various items for...

    NEW YORK (CNN) -- After initially disqualifying a transgender contestant, organizers of the Miss Universe beauty pageant have reversed course saying she can participate. In a statement late Monday night, the Miss Universe Organization said Jenna Talackova can compete provided "she meets the legal gender recognition requirements of Canada, and the standards established by other international competitions." The statement, however, did not elaborate on what the requirements were. The news came a day before Talackova was expected to hold a news conference with high-profile feminist lawyer Gloria Allred to talk about her experience. Until now she hasn't spoken to reporters,...

    Former Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron has spoken out against homosexuality and his comments are not sitting well with The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. Cameron, who is an evangelical Christian, made his comments yesterday on CNNís Piers Morgan Tonight. When asked by Morgan if he thinks homosexuality is a sin, the 41-year-old star did not mince his words. 'I think that itís unnatural,' Cameron said. 'I think that itís detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilisation.' Cameron also spoke out against gay marriage adding: 'I believe that marriage was defined by God. 'Marriage...
