Whoopi Goldberg & Rosie O’Donnell Go At It Against Each Other Over Racism … “YOU ARE A WHITE LADY TELLING ME WHAT IS RACIST!”
WHEN THE VIEW ATTACKS EACH OTHER … OMG, THIS SHOW HAS GONE IN THE TOILET, NO WONDER BARBARA WALTERS JUMPED SHIP.
There is nothing better than two liberals trying to out-liberal each other. Take a good watch and listen to Whoopi and Rosie go at it when it comes to racism in America. However, what might have been the best exchange was when Rosie O’Donnell tried to compare being gay to being black. Whoopi wanted no part of the comparison. Aren’t liberals so tolerant?
“Listen! You are a white lady telling me what is racist to you,” Goldberg said, with O’Donnell shooting back, “I am a gay American.”
“It’s not the same!” Goldberg said, raising her voice.
“You guys need to know what real racism is … Racism is when someone comes up and says (expletive) and die. That’s racist.”
Goldberg added that it was “ignorance,” and not racism, that caused racial profiling, but Cox disagreed, stating that it was caused by “implicit bias.”
“I’ve been black for 60 years,” Goldberg said. “For me, stupidity, dumb folks who just say dumb stuff because they’re not looking or paying attention to the person they’re talking to, which is why people could walk up to Obama and not look up at him and see that it’s the President.”
i guess it would be astonishing for blacks and gays to hear that even white folks have been profiled, followed in stores and asked to do things as if they were the hired help.
First Openly Gay Football PlayerDrafted by NFL Team Michael Sam Has Been Cut By St. Louis Rams (Update: Clears Waivers)(Update: SF 49′ers Appear to Need D-Line Help)
Michael Sam, the first openly gay football player drafted by an NFL team has been cut by the St. Louis Rams. According to Rams head coach Jeff Fisher, the decision to cut Sam was “a football decision” Fisher said he was “proud” to be a part of the historic moment when Sam was drafted, but he also thought the emphasis on Sam’s sexual orientation was overblown. In the end Fisher and the Rams both stated that Sam’s sexual orientation was not a factor in the decision to cut him. I would have to agree as it was also a football decision to draft him.
I am sure the gay activists will disagree.
As reported at ESPN, Michael Sam officially hit waivers Saturday at 4 p.m. ET when all NFL teams had to trim their rosters down to the league-mandated 53 players. From there, the other 31 teams will have until noon ET on Sunday to put in a claim for Sam. If he goes unclaimed, he will be free to sign with a practice squad.
But just curious, notice that ESPN did not go out of their way to mention the many other players who were cut and had their dreams of playing in the NFL crushed. So, for the St. Louis Rams the decision may not have been about Sam’s sexual orientation, but for the media, that was the only thing it was about.
Michael Sam, the first openly gay football player drafted by an NFL team, was cut by the St. Louis Rams Saturday but one of the nation’s most prominent gay-rights organizations and the team’s coach predicted the defensive end will start the regular season with another team.
“This is not the last of Michael Sam,” Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of gay-rights advocacy group GLAAD, said in a statement. “America is ready for its first openly gay NFL player, and Sam’s strong preseason performance leaves us confident that he’ll be wearing an NFL jersey come the regular season kickoff.”
Rams head coach Jeff Fisher told reporters Saturday that the decision to cut Sam was “a football decision,” and that competition to make the team was an uphill battle because the Rams is deep in the position he plays. Sam, 24, came out in February and was the first openly gay player drafted in the history of the NFL when the Rams picked him in the seventh round.
Michael Sam is unlikely to have a future with the Ram’s as they are deep at the defensive line, which makes me wonder why any NFL team would waste a draft pick in the first place for a position that you had no need to draft for. Any how, maybe he will get a look-see in San Francisco, they appear to be in need of D-line help.
All 21 players released Saturday cleared waivers. Sam’s future was a major topic on Twitter, some of it vitriol, some reasoned.
The Rams appeared unlikely to re-sign Sam to the 10-player practice squad because the defensive line is their strongest unit and they need help elsewhere.
- Accusing the First Lady a being transgender is out of line and lower class than usual for the aging, not so funny comedian
Daily Commentary – Monday, July 7, 2014 Download
She said what, get ready to be audited by the IRS?
Oh my while being asked by a street reporter whether a gay president or a female president will take office first, Joan Rivers says Barack Obama is gay and Michelle is a tranny, … not that there is anything wrong with it.
Joan Rivers calls President Obama “gay” and describes Michelle Obama with a homophobic slur in a new video.
Asked by a street reporter whether a gay president or a female president will take office first, Rivers replied, “We already have it with Obama.”
“You know Michelle is a tr*nny,” she went on. “A transgender. We all know.”
Hypocrisy Hillary … Wow, if Hillary Clinton can’t keep composed on liberal NPR, how is she going to handle questions as a presidential candidate or will the MSM just give her a pass like Obama?
Get ready for Hillary Clinton’s favorable ratings to drop even more as America listens to Hillary Clinton and suddenly remembers that the Clinton era gave us the words, parsing and “Clintonesque”. Neither an endearing quality. In what can only be described as another disastrous interview, Hillary Clinton snaps at the radio host Terry Gross on NPR for pressing her on her gay marriage record. Note to Hillary, an NPR interview is supposed to be a liberal softball. More at Hot Air.
CLINTON: “No, I don’t think you are trying to clarify. I think you are trying to say that I used to be opposed and now I am in favor and I did it for political reasons. And that’s just flat wrong. So let me just state what I feel like I think you are implying and repudiate it. I have a strong record. I have a great commitment to this issue and I am proud of what I’ve done and the progress were making.”
Defensive, Testy Gay Marriage Interview
In an interview this afternoon on NPR, Hillary Clinton gets testy and defensive about her and her husband’s gay marriage record.
After 6 minutes of questioning, Clinton attacks host Terry Gross for pressing her on whether she changed her mind on gay marriage or she publicly stated something she had always believed.
GROSS: “So that’s one for you changed your mind?”
CLINTON: You know I really, I have to say, I think you being very persistent, but you are playing with my words and playing with what is such an important issue.”
GROSS: “I’m just trying to clarify so I can understand-”
CLINTON: “No, I don’t think you are trying to clarify.
During the interview, Clinton also attacks gay marriage opponents who “believe they have a direct line to the divine” and claims that “not that many” people supported gay marriage when her husband signed DOMA into law.
Bill Maher Actually Makes a Valid Point as People Laugh: “There Is A Gay Mafia, If You Cross Them, You Do Get Whacked” … The Intollerance of the Gay Rights Activists
Liberal comedian Bill Maher proves even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every so often …
During the online-only “Overtime” portion of HBO’s ‘Real Time’ with Bill Maher, the liberal comedian weighed in on the Mozilla controversy, and his comments may actually surprise you. Maher seemed to disagree with gay rights activists for targeting Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich because of a 2008 $1000 donation to support a ballot initiative, proposition 8, that would ban same-sex marriage in California. Not only did the gay right activists target Brendan Eich, they successfully got him removed from Mozilla for simply applying his First Amendment rights of free speech. Bill Maher said, “There is a Gay Mafia, if you cross them, you do get whacked.”
Gay Rights activists just crossed a line that they will wish one day they did not. Paybacks are as they say, a bitch.
MAHER: What do you think about the Mozilla CEO having to step down over his donation to a pro-Proposition 8 group.
The Mozilla — which I’m wearing right now, by the way. I didn’t know what Mozilla was. I saw it on my computer, but — it’s Firefix, right? It’s the browser.
So this guy apparently does not want gay people to get married and he had to step down. What do you think of that, the question asks.
FMR. REP. TOM DAVIS (R-VA): Because he gave $1,000 eight years ago and it’s come back to haunt him.
CARRIE SHEFFIELD, FORBES: Well, and he gave it when President Obama was still against gay marriage. So, I don’t think it’s very fair.
MAHER: Good point. Also, I think there is a gay mafia. I think if you cross them, you do get whacked.
Founder of Westboro Baptist Church Rev. Fred Phelps Sr. is Dead at 84 … Oh the Irony, No Funeral for Fred Phelps
Good riddance to bad rubbish … Hell has a new occupant.
Westboro Baptist Church founder Rev. Fred Phelps Sr. has died at age 84. The founder of the controversial church died of natural causes at 11:15 p.m. Wednesday, according to
church spokesman Steve Drain Satan. Phelps and his misguided flock are known for their protesting of military funerals, preaching their “God Hates …” message. Sorry, but you do not have to be a member or even a supporter of the LGBT community to be against Phelps and the WBC. One only needs to have a clue and a sense of compassion. Never has a group of individuals been so misguided, under the guise of religion. Well, except Muslim jihadist extremists.
Fred Phelps — the founding pastor of a Kansas church known for its virulently anti-gay protests at public events, including military funerals — has died, the church said Thursday.
The 84-year-old died of natural causes at 11:15 p.m. Wednesday, according to church spokesman Steve Drain.
Phelps founded Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, in 1955 and molded it in his fire-and-brimstone image. Many members of the small congregation are related to Phelps through blood or marriage.
According to Westboro, the church has picketed more than 53,000 events, ranging from Lady Gaga concerts to funerals for slain U.S. soldiers. Typically, a dozen or so church members — including small children — will brandish signs that say “God Hates Fags” and “Thank God for Dead Soldiers.”
Phelps was often called “the most hated man in America,” a label he seemed to relish.
Oh the irony of ironies … according to his daughter, Margie Phelps, there will be no funeral for Fred Phelps. HA!!! What’s the matter, is the Westboro Baptist Church and the Phelps family afraid that a record number of people will show up to picket and protect his funeral, Hmm? Are they afraid that there will be signs by protesters stating, “GOD hates Fred”. Just curious? But this is the way that hypocritical hate works. It would appear that the iront was not lost on American Power either.
Margie Phelps, Phleps daughter, told WIBW-AM that there will be no funeral for him.
Over the weekend, we learned that Phelps was reportedly “on the edge of death.”
In a statement on his Facebook page, Nathan Phelps, who has been estranged from his father for 30 years, said the senior Phelps was dying in hospice care in Topeka, Kan., and that he had been ex-communicated from his own church in August of 2013.
Kudos to Lefitists Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters … Rise above the hate.
I’m sending this message to you in hopes that you may send it on. I hope that as in other times a cooler mind may win out before others make a choice we, the LGBT community, won’t be able to take back. It has been reported today that Fred Phelps has died. It is safe to say that, given his attitude and his devotion to hate, those of us within, and around, the LGBT community will not mourn his end. He caused many families pain at a time when they were already hurting from the death of loved ones. However, this is his legacy, not ours.
As reported at Kansas First News, the founder of the hate-filled, judgmental church may be dead, but the ill-intended message continues. The WBC will continue to picket and spread their message of judgmental hate. Why would they stop, it is the only way they get attention.
Some called his family the most hated in America, and there has been reaction worldwide about the death of that founder of the Westboro Baptist Church, Fred Phelps. According to Tim Phelps, one of Fred Phelps Sr.’s sons, Phelps passed away Wednesday night.
With the news of his passing, there is a question people are asking: Will the picketing stop?
It was business as usual for the members of the Westboro Baptist Church, less than a day after their founder’s death.
“So it’s no different today?” Kansas First News asked Westboro Baptist Church members. ”No different today. Duty is the same,” answered a member who was picketing on 17th and Gage in Topeka.
Fred Phelps Sr., the founder of the radical Westboro Baptist Church is reportedly near death. Phelps is 84. This so-called Kansas church has become infamous for its protests at military funerals and anti-gay sentiments, promoting “Gad Hates Fags”. From the WAPO, members of the Westboro church frequently protest at funerals of soldiers with signs containing messages like “Thank God for dead soldiers” and “Thank God for 9/11,” claiming the deaths are God’s punishment for American immorality and tolerance of homosexuality and abortion. I guess some one forgot to tell this group that God loves, he does not hate.
According to his estranged son via Facebook, Nathan Phelps, Fred Phelps is now on the edge of death at Midland Hospice house in Topeka, Kansas.” Nathan Phelps also said, the elder Phelps was ex-communicated from his own church last year. A second son of the elder Phelps Sr., Nate Phelps, also has confirmed that his father had been voted out of church.
The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., who founded a Kansas church that’s widely known for its protests at military funerals and anti-gay sentiments, is in a care facility.
Westboro Baptist Church spokesman Steve Drain said Sunday that Phelps is being cared for in a Shawnee County facility. Drain wouldn’t identify the facility but says Phelps is 84 and “having some health problems.”
The information is based on an email sent by the son, Nate Phelps, to a Topeka Capital-Journal reporter. Nate Phelps said his father is near death.
“(Fred) is at Midland Hospice House where, as of yesterday (Friday), he is comfortable without the respiratory difficultly that he was having the day before and is unresponsive,” Nate Phelps wrote, quoting a message sent to him.
After Fred Phelps Sr. was voted out of the church, he was moved to another house where he could be watched for fear of him hurting himself, then he “basically stopped eating and drinking,” Nate Phelps said in the email.
For many years, Fred Phelps Sr. and his wife, Margie Marie Phelps, lived in an upper floor of the church.
A Westboro Baptist Church spokesman declined to comment Sunday on whether a report that Pastor Fred Waldron Phelps Sr. has been excommunicated from the conservative church, known for its controversial anti-gay stance, that he founded in the 1950s.
Sorry, but HATE is not a religion. Isn’t this guy going to be in for a surprise when he finds the Pearly Gates locked and a sign that says, sorry, take this elevator straight to Hell.
Actress Ellen Page of the Movie Says, “I am Gay” … Honestly, Who Cares? You’re a Hollywood Actress, Not Like You Came Out and Said You Were a Republican!
Just curious, what would get a Hollywood actor/actress more of a backlash … whether they came out and said they were Gay or a Conservative Republican?
26 year old Hollywood actress Ellen Page made the announcement that she was gay during a conference for LGBT teens ‘Time to Thrive’ Friday in Las Vegas at the ‘Human Rights Campaign’. She said she, “was tired of hiding and tired of lying by omission.” How is this a major or bold announcement? Seriously, I am not being flip here. Personally, I could care less what sexual orientation she is. It makes no difference whether I will or will not watch her movies. I have always enjoyed her in such movies like X-Men: The Last Stand, Whip It, Juno and Super. It might be one thing for individuals in some locals, but the notion that in this day and age some one who is in the movie business environment can’t come of of the closet is absurd. It is not like you are going to be ostracized, harassed or made fun of because you are gay. If there was ever an industry that is more openly accepting of gays, it would be Hollywood and the movie industry. Sorry, but it is not a bad thing to be gay. Hollywood might be tough on you to have the right look, have the right weight, have the right hair color, but they could care less if you are gay or not. In fact, it might be a plus.
Hollywood actress Ellen Page, known for her role in the movie “Juno,” announced she is gay, in a very public way.
Page broke the news during an emotional speech Friday in a crowded conference hall in Las Vegas, her publicist confirmed to CNN.
“I’m here today because I am gay. And because… maybe I can make a difference,” Page told a crowd at an event called Time to THRIVE, a conference to promote issues of the gay community.
The website for the Human Rights Campaign, which hosted the conference in Nevada, congratulated the star for her “brave decision to live openly and authentically.” My question is why does it have to be public knowledge what your sexual orientation is? Does it really matter? Why do we need to know if you like guys, girls or both?
It is not like Ellen Page came out and said … I am a Republican! Now imagine if Hollywood actress Ellen Page had come out of the closet and said she was a Tea Party Conservative and said, she did not vote for Barack Obama and does not know how anyone could have done so. Imagine if she said that President Obama’s policies were hurting teen’s chances for future jobs and that the LGBT teens sitting in the audience will have an insurmountable $17.4 trillion and counting debt because of Obama? Now that would have been really coming out of the closet for an actor/actress that would have been a story and have caused her more of a mean and hateful reaction on Facebook and Twitter.
Mizzouri Tigers DE Michael Sam Says He’s Gay, Set to be First Openly Gay Player in NFL … “Not That There is Anything Wrong With That”
In an interview with ESPN’s ‘Outside the Lines,’ Missouri Tiger’s DE Michael Sam says, “I am an openly, proud gay man.”
Michael Sam was the 2013 AP SEC defensive player of the year and is expected to be drafted in the early to mid rounds of the upcoming NFL draft. But believe it or not, for those in the know and around football, especially teams getting background and vetting college players for the NFL draft, this is hardly a revelation. So for the most part this was not a surprise. NFL teams vet players more than the media vets potential presidential candidates, which is a shame and a story for another day. With the story out there Michael Sam came out and professed his sexuality as he said, “I want to own my truth. … No one else should tell my story but me.”
Michael Sam, an All-American defensive lineman from Missouri and the Associated Press’ SEC Defensive Player of the Year, said that he is gay in an interview with ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” on Sunday.
Sam stated publicly what his teammates and coaches at Mizzou have known since August: “I am an openly, proud gay man.”
Sam is eligible for the NFL draft in May. Assuming that he is drafted, Sam could become the first openly gay player in the history of the NFL.
“I understand how big this is,” he said. “It’s a big deal. No one has done this before. And it’s kind of a nervous process, but I know what I want to be … I want to be a football player in the NFL.”
The NFL released a statement Sunday night supporting Michael Sam. (VIDEO)
“We admire Michael Sam’s honesty and courage,” NFL senior vice president of communications Greg Aiello said in the statement. “Michael is a football player. Any player with ability and determination can succeed in the NFL. We look forward to welcoming and supporting Michael Sam in 2014.”
ABC News: Michael Sam should be commended.
What happens next is what’s most interesting here. Michael Sam’s decision to come out as gay in advance of his arrival in the NFL is courageous and historic and should be celebrated as such. The best way to celebrate it would be to leave him alone and let him play football.
But that’s not going to happen, at least not right away. This is going to be the story of the week and the story of next week’s scouting combine and one of the big stories of the draft and of the early days of training camp for whichever team picks Sam. The manner in which this story is received and covered by the outside world will say a lot about where we are as a society in 2014. We’ve been covering and anticipating this story for a while without a name or a date. Now that we have both, let’s all hope we’re as well prepared to handle it as he is.
Hmm, commended … The American Thinker has another point of view that has validity as well … “Tolerance is a good thing. I’m all for it. But being tolerant doesn’t mean you have to shut your mouth when people make fools of themselves.” I thought the mantra from the Bill Clinton – Monica affair was that it was a personal matter and none of our business?
I will never understand this narcissistic impulse among many gays to flaunt their sexual preference. This is a personal and private matter that most of the rest of us aren’t interested in knowing.
On a person note so Michael Sam is gay, not that there is anything wrong with that (VIDEO). From personal experience a sports locker room can be an interesting place when it comes to comments. Let’s just hope that from this point going forward he is just known as a football player; however, the media is going to make a circus out of the fact that he is the first openly gay football player. The truth is that it is commendable that he came out; however, another truth is that many teams may think that this will be a distraction in the locker room and many will not want to deal with the circus of a MSM focusing on a players sexuality, rather than the team. This could cause his draft stock to drop and of course if he does go lower than what was originally projected, that will become a media story and cries of discrimination.
The news that former Missouri defensive end Michael Sam is gay holds significant social and cultural ramifications. But from a purely football perspective, his decision to come out prior to May’s NFL draft will make his path to the league daunting, eight NFL executives and coaches told SI.com.
In blunt terms, they project a significant drop in Sam’s draft stock, a publicity circus and an NFL locker room culture not prepared to deal with an openly gay player. Sam, the SEC Defensive Player of the Year, was projected as a mid- to late-round draft pick prior to his announcement.
While none of the executives overtly condemned Sam’s decision, their opinions illuminated an NFL culture in which an openly gay player — from the draft room to the locker room — faces long odds and a lonely path.
