Diversity Lane and Beauty Pageants

… and they call us haters.  Have you heard their potty mouths?  Even the “feminists” have attacked Miss California for daring to have a value set different from their own.  Zig Heil or Shut Up… that’s the Liberal Message to all who oppose their vision of Utopia.  Ridicule, “translating” from what was said to the twist they want to spin are all the ways they tell anyone who has a different or diverse point of view to “shut up”.

Isn’t their version of tollerance and diversity civil?

    It’s terrible how they’ve gone after this girl. It creates such a chilling effect on free speech for those that believe in traditional marriage. It basically says, “if you support traditional marriage, then we’re going to look at every aspect of your life to make sure you are a perfect person and have never screwed up. And if you aren’t perfect we’re going to destroy your life, make fun of you in the media, and basically paint a ridiculous caricature of those that believe in traditional marriage.”

    Unbelievable! Those intolerant, anti-free speech liberals! This attitude dominates the MSM. By the way, John Edwards never received have the scrutiny that Miss California received…and can anyone honestly say that that is right?

  2. CDNMR,

    I don’t recall the 1st Amendment guaranteeing that free speech is appreciated speech (the mythical “satisfaction guranteed or your money back” clause).

    In fact, I remember a whole bunch of people, circa 2002-2003, were told to leave the country when they exercised their freedom of speech, one famous chap even held up a sign that read “Get a brain, morans!” and a group of Quakers was infiltrated by the police for speaking their minds. There was this band – the Dix-E Chix, I believe – who lost entire swaths of playtime, and we’re spat at and such.

    Basically – get over yourselves. Or, if you are going to play Lt. Renault, at least wear the appropriate Vichy gendarme outfit.

    Klute,

    I’m referring to the attitude displayed by the MSM. Someone as unimportant as Miss California somehow finds herself at the top of the nightly news? How did she become the center of attention?

    I understand if it’s hard for you to see from my point of view…liberals rarely have to experience such things. I don’t recall the Dixie chicks or other groups making the nightly news. However, the MSM feels inclined to investigate the lives of people like Miss California or Joe the Plumber in some sort of apparent effort to discredit conservatives.

    Klute, human civility is not a 1st Amendment issue.

  5. “Human civility is not a 1st Amendment issue.”

    Yes, VV. We on the left got that memo during the run up to the Iraq War.

  6. “I understand if it’s hard for you to see from my point of view…liberals rarely have to experience such things.”

    Really.

    So on, and so on, and so on. I can play that tit for tat game all night. You can pretend that the right stood there and said “I may disagree with what you have to say but I will defend your right to the death to say it” but that’s not what happened and you damn well know it. We were told to leave, that we were traitors, we weren’t real Americans, etc. etc. Fox News has the highest ratings of all cable news channels – combined. The martyr complex is over.

    “I don’t recall the Dixie chicks or other groups making the nightly news.”

    Then you weren’t paying attention.

    “However, the MSM feels inclined to investigate the lives of people like Miss California or Joe the Plumber in some sort of apparent effort to discredit conservatives.”

    I couldn’t care less about Miss California one way or another – Joe the Plumber has started a PAC, got a book published, is a featured speaker at CPAC, reports for Pajamas Media. The most dangerous place in America is between Joe the Plumber and a camera. He’s fair game.

    This Miss California is an opportunist. She’s getting knocked around not because of one answer during the pageant but because she has been on a non-stop publicity campaign ever since. I don’t think she actually cares that much about gay marriage, she’s just latched on to a gravy train of news coverage.

    Miss California would attend the opening of an envelope if she thought it would help her career.
