Cliff Kincaid, the editor of the conservative Accuracy in Media, took to the web to share his hatred-laden viewpoint that "Pro-homosexual media is going bankrupt."
I guess it's a shame that conservative personalities like Kincaid are causing their media to go intellectually bankrupt. Kincaid says:
What should be addressed is one of [Bush's] precious few "legacies" - that of promoting the acceptance of homosexuality - which some conservatives do not want to admit or address. It is a record that Barack Obama will build and expand upon.
Bush would prefer to call it "compassionate conservatism," but there is nothing compassionate about wasting taxpayer dollars promoting a "lifestyle" that spreads disease and death.
To prove his point that Bush has supported a "lifestyle" leading to "death," Kincaid spends three long paragraphs talking about the ills of the global AIDS pandemic and how Bush has spent "billions of our tax dollars" in the fight against the disease.
I guess Kincaid never took the time to research the underlying causes of the African and global AIDS epidemic. Neither have hardly anything to do with LGBT people. Maybe Kincaid should take the log out of his heterosexual world's eye before trying to pick out the spec in the queer world's eye. He's starting to sound like a little Jesse Helms.
Finally, after reading about facts and figures that have absolutely zero to do with LGBT people, Kincaid finally gets to his point: Bush has promoted gay people to serve in his administration, and, somehow, that makes him pro-gay.
Kincaid paints all the news organizations as "pro-homosexual" for their lack of "critical coverage" of Bush's gay appointments. Perhaps the media recognize, as Bush might, that all Americans are entitled to serve their country (if only Bush could apply that same rhetoric to Don't Ask, Don't Tell and marriage).
Even the "conservative" Fox News was a sponsor of this year's National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA). Other sponsors were CBS, CNN, ESPN, Gannett, Hearst Newspapers, NBC Universal, the McClatchy Company, the Washington Post, and Bloomberg.
And you thought that Fox News and NBC were rivals? Not on the matter of cozying up to the gays. They're strange bedfellows on the matter of gay rights. This crowd considers criticism of homosexuality a hate crime.
He goes on to list every article or piece of news coverage that's even slightly pro-gay. He conveniently ignores any mention of conservative-spun news pieces.
"It's no wonder 'mainstream; media outlets like Newsweek are losing readers and jobs," Kincaid writes. "They deserve to go economically bankrupt because they have demonstrated they are morally bankrupt."
Yeah, whatever, and Kincaid deserves to have his funding pulled right up from under him, too. He deserves to go economically bankrupt because he's demonstrated that he's intellectually bankrupt. He can't make an argument, can't write an opinion piece and brings in straw men and unrelated points that only serve to add to the perception of just how disconnected from reality he is.
What's up with this continued minority syndrome of radical Christians? At last check, Christianity was the world's largest religion. Why does it seem, through their eyes, that all of the world's power is set against them? If you ask me, it's starting to sound a little paranoid schizophrenic.
