  • Still Friends? The trouble with old sitcoms (90's sitcom "Friends" was sexist and homophobic!)

    Ahh, Friends. The US sitcom that took over the world. Millennials may look back fondly to the heady days of the ultimate 20-something Manhattan lifestyle enjoyed by our favourite flatmates - Monica, Ross, Chandler, Joey, Rachel and Phoebe. But nearly a quarter of a century - yikes! - since the show began, a new generation of fans are discovering the hit show for the first time on Netflix. And some of them are clearly finding it a bit uncomfortable. christina @cxorlando There is nothing I hate more than Ross in the male nanny episode of Friends. He is SO SEXIST...

    The lead promoter and founder of East Coast Comicon, Cliff Galbraith, bragged on social media about banning Christian conservative actor Kevin Sorbo from the upcoming geek convention in New Jersey because of the actor’s friendship with Sean Hannity. “I turned down Kevin Sorbo for East Coast Comicon,” organizer Galbraith wrote on Facebook over the weekend. “He’s pals with Sean Hannity. Just can’t do it.” As with video games, YA literature, and tech, the comic book and nerd culture convention circuit has become progressively left-leaning over the past few years–and East Coast Comicon is no exception. Its founder, Cliff Galbraith, advertised...
  • Democrat Al Franken ‘Jokes’ About Gay Murder: “I Don’t Like Homosexuals–Was Glad He Got Killed”

    Democrat Al Franken laughed about a homosexual being killed: Al Franken: “I just don’t like homosexuals… Hey, I was glad when that Pudding homosexual got killed in Philadelphia.” Democrat Al Franken does not just have a history of abusing women and cracking rape jokes. For more context in 2005 Mike Adams at Frontpage discussed the murder Franken thought was so funny. For those who don’t get this “fair mean” joke, Franken is attacking Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Club, which is a humorous dramatic society – one that never invited Franken to join while he was at Harvard. So, naturally, when you...

    Washington (CNN) — A Pennsylvania lawmaker is under fire after insinuating that a fellow state representative was gay for touching his arm during a committee meeting. The incident, captured on a video feed, took place during a state government committee meeting in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives Tuesday night. Republican state Rep. Daryl Metcalfe was chairing a meeting about land use legislation when state Rep. Matthew Bradford, a Democrat who was speaking at the time, touched his arm.

    Given its prominence in current public discourse, one would think that hate, not love, is a many-splendored thing. The perfectly good word, which oozes out of every media pore, is now so overused that it means next to nothing. Every time you turn around, someone is accused of “hate” merely for expressing disagreement. This is not just a matter of semantics. It’s serious. When you cheapen a word, it discourages honest discussion and leads to more confusion and conflict, which is how the devil likes it. We have it on good authority that the underworld thrives on mayhem. One large...

    A small hop, skip and jump to homophobia, Islamophobia, trans-phobia and all the gazillion other ‘phobias’ that are becoming socially unacceptable The restrictions on free speech in today’s universities are nothing less than the attempt to take control of language to prevent the free exchange and discussion of ideas. It all starts innocuously enough; who doesn’t want to end racism? And if the use of certain pejoratives becomes socially unacceptable, then let’s all pitch in! However, the progressive mind is never satisfied unless it is able to impose its will on everyone else.

    Left-wing Mexican senators celebrated the start of the Christmas season by beating a pińata of U.S. President-Elect Donald J. Trump while chanting “faggot” and other expletives. In this case, the assembled group echoed the chant, “chinga tu madre”, calling for the President-Elect’s mother to be violated sexually. Many senators whistled the insult in lieu of saying the exact words.

December 7, 2015 Joe Kaufman In a push to do outreach to the local Muslim community, the Florida Democratic Party has officially recognized the American Muslim Democratic Caucus (AMDC), a group based in South Florida with members around the state. While this might look innocuous on its face, AMDC is headed by a woman, Ghazala Salam, who is the leader of a terrorist organization and has deep ties to various radical Islamic institutions. Salam is the Community and Government Relations...

    (BREITBART) A Islamic preacher who has referred to non-Muslims as “kuffar” and preached on how to kill homosexuals is due to deliver a set of nightly lectures at an Iranian government-backed organisation in London, Breitbart London can reveal. Shaykh Hamza Sodagar – who gained notoriety earlier this year for his lecture on “one of five” ways to kill homosexuals – is due to speak at the Islamic Republic of Iran School in north-west London between October 4th – 12th. According to a speaker biography, Mr. Sodagar regards himself as a “role model” for “young Muslims all around the world”. A...

    WASHINGTON -- I see that CNN is calling upon the good offices of Mr. Potato Head to refute Donald Trump's evisceration of Hillary Clinton in his speech last Wednesday. Mr. Potato Head is very indignant that Peter Schweizer has written a book, "Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich," demonstrating that a pattern of corruption exists in the relationship between The Clinton Foundation and the Clinton State Department. He says that pattern of corruption does not establish the Clintons' guilt. Well, an author can only do so much....

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says she feels sympathy for Donald Trump supporters who are taken in by the New Yorker, but warned voters that she thinks his message is offensive. “I am sympathetic to a lot of the people attracted by Trump’s message, who are feeling really left out and left behind,” she said during a YouTube Creators summit in Los Angeles, California on Tuesday.

    One way in which the world's largest conclave of English professors--the Modern Language Association (MLA)--lives up to its name is to leave attendees at its annual conferences with a new vocabulary that they cannot shake. After a couple of days at one of these annual meet-ups, you find yourself uttering sentences such as, "We must ascertain whether we are witnessing a discursive binary or a recursive modality." Similarly, the MLA loves intersections. For example, the latest MLA convention in Austin, Texas featured a panel on "The Oldest Profession: Teaching and Aging." We learned that one of the speakers, Helene Meyers...

    Discussing reports that New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham may have been the target of gay taunts by members of the Carolina Panthers during a Dec. 20, 2015 NFL game, an MSNBC panelist said it’s "not so much about homophobia as it is about hating women." "At the heart of the homophobia, especially on the athletic level, is a hatred of women," Senior Editor Jamil Smith of The New Republic said. "I would completely agree that we know homophobia is rooted in a hatred of women,” Monica Dennis, a New York Coordinator of Black Lives Matters later added. “The...

    Leave to Barack Obama to turn what should be a celebration of the Jewish people’s survival in the face of adversity into a politicized rant celebrating the cause of the Palestinians, who want to “drive them into the sea,” as has been promised since the birth of the modern State of Israel. Daniel Greenfield reports on what should have been the highlight of this year’s White House ceremony at Front Page Magazine: …the White House chose Susan Talve to light the Menorah. Talve is a member of the anti-Israel group T'ruah which is currently promoting assorted "soft BDS" programs. She's...

    Not surprisingly a new study has just come out of Italy claiming that people who “harbor homophobic attitudes” suffer from a psychological disorder — a phobia. So now liberals can point to a scientific study that supposedly shows that people who believe homosexuality is a sexual perversion, such as Bible believers, are “homophobic,” as if opponents have an irrational fear of homosexuals. According to the study, homophobia is a “culture-induced disease.”

    Long before Jim Messina became a trusted aide to President Barack Obama and one of the most powerful men in Washington, he was just a simple boy from Boise. Now, after working in politics for just over a decade, he lives in a lavish D.C. estate. How this happened is a classic Washington Cinderella story. Raised in Idaho by a single mother, Messina moved to Washington in 1995, in his mid-20s, to take a job as a legislative aide for Max Baucus, the conservative Democratic senator from Montana (now ambassador to China). Baucus supported George W. Bush-era personal and corporate...

    President Obama has wrapped up his tour of Africa. It was notable, insofar as that word can be applied to the trip, for his somewhat condescending and neo-colonial lecture to his hosts on the need to ease up on the old homophobia. Certainly, Africa is not terribly gay-friendly. But nor are other parts of the planet. In his ardent wooing of Iran, for example, he doesn't seem to have been perturbed in the least by his new best friends' executions of homosexuals, anymore than he is by the brutalization of gays elsewhere in the Muslim world. You might deduce in...

    Since the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges that legalized marriage equality in America, some conservative Christians have been downright apoplectic.
