Quote# 79170

(in response to an "Entertainment Weekly" story on gay teens in the media)

As you might suspect, Entertainment Weekly didn't plan to debate gay teen propaganda, but to encourage it, energetically. Not a single soul had anything critical to say. Not even a question. If this magazine weren't so earnestly in the tank, the story could come with a disclaimer: “This issue is an advertisement bought and paid for by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.”

Media Matters notes: "Bozell has a history of anti-gay rhetoric. He previously argued Hollywood demonstrated 'liberal bias' by failing to portray gays as 'morally wrong.' He's also warned that the gay lifestyle and agenda 'endorses the right of gays to marry and teach children, and that's in utter opposition to mainstream America.' Bozell's Media Research Council is also boycotting the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), because GOProud, a group for conservative gays and their allies, is participating."

This comment could look interesting to some people, until you rearrange it a bit...

Giant quotes from some random sources are okay, as long as they agree with what you're thinking - otherwise, they're quite naughty indeed!

Not living up to your own standards, are you?

Brent Bozell, there is nothing critical to say about being gay. I know it's a tired comparison but it's kinda like there's nothing critical to say about being left-handed. You are a member of a religion that despises homosexuals.
You have every right to continue being a member (pun intended). Just so you know, not everyone sees your deity as the right deity, nor does everyone regard your deity as real. Therefore not everyone is going to accept your religion's authority over their lives.

Go fuck yourself :-)

@Zeus Almighty:
slip me a hard copy of the "gay agenda". Is that what they call it these days :-D

Gotta love how businesses have every right to be anti-gay, but let any of them be pro-gay, and the guardians of right-wing political correctness will scream to the high heavens about it.

Um, why would they need to "debate gay teen propaganda"? I thought gay teens had been seduced by the gay agenda. Oh, wait, I forgot. They're gay. That automatically makes them evil and part of the gay agenda. Yes, my friends, even children want to... take your children. Makes perfect sense.

Also, Mr. Bozell? If you're so dead set on having a debate, I recommend you watch the proceedings during the Prop 8 trial. There is no debate. And isn't it funny how you want a debate so much, while also failing to want gays and lesbians representing fairly? One would think you just want to portray gays and lesbians one way, a way that is morally wrong, instead of, you know, having a bit of criticism for your side.

But you're a hypocrite, so I'm just going to tell you to DIAF and STFU.

Bozell, you name seems to say it all!

OK, produce for me, please (see, I can be nice!) a properly authenitcated copy of this much referred to 'Gay Agenda"

If you cannot do this then you are just stirring hatred on the basis of your personal bigotry. Nice people don't do that sort of thing. Get the message?

I'm gay, btw, and I have never seen such an agenda/document. It is, I maintain, a fiction cobbled together by people such as you to further their own twisted and disgustingly warped minds.

Oh, and while you're about it, why not let us see a duly authenticated copy of the heterosexual agenda, or is that the lying, erring and disgusting book you call the bible that I hold unfit for children under the age of 15.

These past few years have made it perfectly clear that gay youth need and deserve good role models. Besides, one of the TV magazines just ran an article about the rise in faith depicted on television (positively).

2/2/2011 6:52:07 AM



Aww poor Brent, it seems you're reading the wrong media. Get yourself over to the Daily Mail for some mainstream media taking your side. They do a delicious sideline in claiming a bit of persecution towards those against the agenda too, a prick like you will love it.

See Xotan, if this bastion of the British press is saying there's a Gay Agenda, it must be true. Maybe your copy got lost in the post.

You are quite amusing.

Well of course people who don't agree with you are evil! </sarcasm>

Get a fucking life dude and quit sticking your nose into everyone else's.

Not a single soul had anything critical to say.

Right, because Entertainment Weekly really wants to alienate an entire demographic for absolutely no reason. Besides, their job isn't to be the sexuality police, their job is to provide entertainment related news. Besides, why should they be critical? Ever heard of "judge not lest ye be judged?".

the story could come with a disclaimer: “This issue is an advertisement bought and paid for by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.”

And what if it was? I'll never understand your sick fascination with not just picking on gays all the time but then getting all pissed off when they start to defend themselves.

He previously argued Hollywood demonstrated 'liberal bias' by failing to portray gays as 'morally wrong.'

And? Hollywood also isn't the sexuality police.

Bozell's Media Research Council is also boycotting the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), because GOProud, a group for conservative gays and their allies, is participating."

Good. In fact, stay out of politics altogether. You never know, you might accidentally talk to a gay politician at some point and then you might get a heart attack.

Homophobia is so mainstream.

Waaaaaahhhh, not everyone agrees with you. Get the fuck over it.

I really get tired of this idea that not totally condemning homosexuality is promoting and encouraging it.

As you might expect, Reader's Digest didn't plan to debate Christian teen propaganda, but to encourage it, energetically. Not a single soul had anything critical to say. Not even a question. If this magazine weren't so earnestly in the tank, the story could have come with a disclaimer: "This issue is an advertisement bought and paid for by the Christian and Mentally Retarded Alliance Against Defamation."

Let's see, a pompous attitude of "agree with me on everything or be rejected as a fool," a hint of paranoia, an unhealthy dash of presumption when speaking about what America "really" wants and an apparent enthusiasm for stalling action if it involves help from people you think are beneath you...Its official Mr. Bozell, you are the perfect poster boy for everything that is wrong with the conservative movement in this country! Now step forward and claim your prize.

"He's also warned that the gay lifestyle and agenda 'endorses the right of gays to marry and teach children, and that's in utter opposition to mainstream America.'"

Uh, no. Gay marriage has passed in some states and almost here in CA.(probably would have without out of state meddlers.) Gays teaching chiuldren isn't much of an issue except in the minds of those like you, Brent.

My U.S. government teacher in high school was gay. He was a very good teacher and never tried to "recruit" me or slip me a hard copy of the "gay agenda."
So, as someone else mentioned earlier, DIAF. And take Pat Robertson with you, mmmkay? Oh, and if it's not too much trouble build a really big bonfire big enough for the entire Phelps family.

"As you might suspect", Brent is about to tell you what to think, and he prefaces this with, "as you might suspect" so you'll think you should have been thinking it already. That is, if you've been conditioned not to think. Think about it.

Okay, let's debate!

Have there been gay teens since the dawn of time?

Yes.

Is there currently an effort to bring the gay lifestyle out of the closet and into the mainstream?

Yes.

Is this effort being made in part because allowing and encouraging self-righteous bullies to demonize and injure these children creates psychological wreckage among the gay teens and sociopathic monsters among the straight population?

Yes.

Not much to debate there. Let's try another topic.

Is Brent Bozell one of the monsters?

IMO Probably. Anyone want to debate?

Is his ranting a result of a doomed attempt to legitimize his past reprehensible behavior against fellow human beings?

IMO Possibly. Can we get someone to cover both sides of that?

Hmm. Still not much of a debate. I guess it's just hopeless Brent. As are you.

Yet another piece of run-of-the-mill homophobia from a right-wing nobody. Doesn't really qualify as darndest, as far as I'm concerned.

Don't get me wrong, I wish it could qualify. But, well, this is America. Political gay-bashing is mainstream.

"Mainstream America" just gave Britney Spears another #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100, and several hundred thousand "Mainstream Americans" bought tickets to her last tour even though she literally lipped every song, played no instrument on stage, and sleepwalked through the choreography.

I couldn't care less if something is "in utter opposition to Mainstream America."

[No name, I note]

I'm not British, or American, but I know the Daily Mail! A comic for grown ups who can hardly (or can't be bothered to) read, and whose intellectual level is often of the 'brain switched off at birth' kind. It caters for the tits and concocted sex story brigade. News of any interest or value it does not contain.

Nah. I wouldn't believe anything that Bozo the Clown sent me. It would probably be forged anyway.

I feel sorry for this dead horse, as conservatives just will not stop beating it.

Most stories in magazines are not debates, merely articles about stuff. You have to make up your own mind as to what to think about them. I know that's hard, what with no Pastor or Religious Right propaganda to instruct you.

Please provide the receipt/invoice as proof that GLAAD paid for that article in Entertainment Weekly.

In related news, Brent Bozell has announced he will boycott the 21st century, as gays are participating in it.
