I seriously don’t know what’s going on with the leftist run Mainstream Media these days. Obama got the nod, Democrats are in total control and Republicans have been reduced to a laughable irrelevance. So why has the hate and intolerance increased? Seems as though they should be happy as clams with the complete shift in power, partially brought to you by the MSM. But they obviously are not, as witnessed by three recent displays of meanspirited hate and intolerance.
Exhibit #1……. the Miss America pageant.
Enter Carrie Prejean, a California lovely that was the leader by most accounts in the Miss America beauty pageant until some troll named Perez Hilton asked her a question on Gay marraige. Prejean’s crime, speaking her mind on the subject with what was a very honest answer. Unfortunately for her, the intolerant Hilton didn’t accept her answer as being what he “wanted” to hear and gave her a zero mark which cost her the prize. This coming from a Gay who would have us all be “tolerant” of his choice. Some irony, eh?!!! But he wasn’t done. A day or two later on his Blog, Perez tried to explain his actions with this little rant;
Disgusting little creature!
Now, earlier this week, the weak-kneed folks that run the Miss California pageant with the head troll being none other than Donald Trump, decided to fire Prejean and take away her title. Guess they just couldn’t handle a conservative woman who spoke her mind on a hot topic and gave the “wrong answer”. What ever happened to free speech and freedom of thought in this country?!!!! I guess THAT only applies if you have the reigning conformist views of the left.
In case you have forgotten the story on the Miss America pageant controversy;
Exhibit # 2…… the Palin/Letterman lovefest.
The nastiness was ratcheted up this week when David Letterman decided to go after the Palin family. Sarah Palin along with her 14 year old daughter Willow were in New York attending a conference on Autism. On the invitation by Rudy Giuliani to see a Yankee game, Letterman found this to be fair game for his monologue and suggested A-Rod could be found during the 7th inning stretch up in the stands knocking up Palin’s daughter. Another gem coming from his Top Ten segment on what Palin did while in New York, Letterman came up with this tasteless example of meanspirited hate when he said….. “bought makeup at Bloomingdales to update her “slutty flight attendant” look. Regardless of what your opinion is of Sarah Palin, this kind of viciousness is what has been increasingly deemed “acceptable” by those on the left and their pals in the MSM……. as long as it is directed towards conservatives. Letterman’s show is contracted and can be seen on CBS, the same network that instantly rushed in and cancelled Don Imus’s morning show over the “knappy headed Hoe” comment. Imus, to his credit went to Rutgers and met privately with the basketball team for two hours giving his sincere apologies and this was AFTER he had been fired so there was really nothing to be gained. So why isn’t CBS giving Dave some sort of reprimand? His so called apology later in the week was weak at best as he “claimed” he meant his “knocked-up” joke to be directed at Palin’s 18 year old as though THAT was supposed to exonerate him from this whole fiasco. Another “double standard” exposed!
See the controversy and an interview by Contessa Brewer here;
Yeah……. cut that mic Contessa, you just got pwned!
Exhibit # 3…… the Playboy Hate F%*k article.
Playboy showed it’s true colors this week with an article written by an obvious “lover” of good looking conservative women named Guy Cimbalo. In this article, Cimbalo described how he would like to have “hateful” sex with a number of conservative women and was not at all coming from an angle of flattery. This is simply disgusting. The double standard again looms large here as, if this had been written about liberal women, the author would have been publicly flogged and demands for the Magazine to shut down would be all over the media. But again, not a peep from the MSM. Their silence is as good as a guilty plea to this charge. And where is this dude coming from……… I mean Peggy Noonan? She’s probably old enough to be his Grandmother! WTF?
“The names on the Playboy list of conservative women Guy Cimbalo wants to “hate f*ck” is, quite bluntly, a fantasy sex assault hit list:”
- Michelle Malkin
- Megyn Kelly
- Mary Katharine Ham
- Amanda Carpenter
- Elisabeth Hasselbeck
- Dana Perino
- Laura Ingraham
- Pamela Geller
- Michele Bachmann
- Peggy Noonan

I just don’t understand the meanspirited, hateful and intolerant left these days. What ever happened to COMMON DECENCY?!!!!!
