TV Networks Become Activists For Militant Causes
There would be plenty of examples of the MSM pushing radical agendas and engaging in social engineering. And there would be plenty of examples of morally and mentally challenged celebs jumping on these bandwagons. The most recent example involves the Seven Network.
Their morning Sunrise program is starting a campaign in support of homosexual marriage this week. They have decided that the whole nation must now fall in line with the demands of this militant minority group. And a bunch of big cheese celebs known more for their looks than their intellect and ethics have joined in the crusade.
As one news item reports: “Megan Gale and Jennifer Hawkins have put the weight of their celebrity behind the campaign to legalise gay marriage. The models are part of a group of high-profile identities supporting the push that is being promoted through Channel 7′s Sunrise show and magazine Marie Clair.
“‘Love is quite commonly referred to as being universal and having no boundaries,’ Gale told Marie Claire. ‘With this in mind, I find it quite unbelievable that we can be living in a modern society, in a country like Australia, yet still not have the support from the Government to allow all couples the right to be legally bound.’ Hawkins agreed with Gale. ‘Everyone should have the right to get married and have a special day,’ Hawkins said. ‘Everyone loves the same way, so they should be able to celebrate it in the same way.’
“Other celebrities backing the push include reality TV judge Brian McFadden and Olympic gold medal-winning diver Matthew Mitcham. The campaign comes after US President Barack Obama changed his mind and announced he would support gay marriage.
“On Thursday, Sunrise will feature outside broadcasts in Melbourne and Sydney to launch the push that the program plans to take to Canberra. Executive producer Michael Pell said it was a first for television and while it wouldn’t please everyone, he said it was important the show took a stand. The move has the full support of hosts David Koch and Melissa Doyle.
“‘For a long time now they have both been behind the whole gay marriage issue,’ Mr Pell said. ‘They understand everyone does not support it, but a show like Sunrise, we care. We are trying to make a difference, affect change rather than just comment on it. It’s not an issue about sexuality, it’s a human rights issue’.”
Yet more cases of celebutards who are completely clueless. Of course we expect brainless remarks like this from those who give every appearance of being just that: brainless. How idiotic. Don’t these celebs ever think for one moment in their lives?
“Everyone should have the right to get married and have a special day”? Really. Everyone? Anytime? To anyone? For any reason? So if I love my library, then why not? If three people love each other, then why not? If a football team loves each other, then why not? If a girl loves her goldfish, then why not?
Megan, Jennifer, et al – just what sort of mental midgets are you? Have you ever had a moment of cognitive clarity in your lives, or do you just always parrot the latest social activist trends? And to be honest, who really cares what you think about these matters anyway.
That is the real problem here – the dumbing down of public discourse. Don’t worry about actually trying to offer a sustained and evidence-based argument – just trot out the usual suspects. Get the celebs to do your PR work for you. Sure beats making a coherent argument.
And consider the very revealing, and moronic, remarks of executive producer Michael Pell: “For a long time now they have both been behind the whole gay marriage issue. They understand everyone does not support it, but a show like Sunrise, we care. We are trying to make a difference, affect change rather than just comment on it. It’s not an issue about sexuality, it’s a human rights issue.”
“We are trying to make a difference, affect change rather than just comment on it.” Yeah that much is obvious. Since when does a lightweight morning entertainment and news show all of a sudden became an activist agent for change? Why have they taken it upon themselves to promote the agenda of 1.5 per cent of the population, and side against the other 98.5 percent?
And given that most homosexuals don’t even want marriage, these num-nums at Seven are actually agitating for a miniscule percentage of the population. Whatever for? Why not represent all Australians, instead of just a tiny fraction of militant activists?
And what is this baloney about a “human rights issue”? It is nothing of the sort of course, as I carefully document in my new book, Strained Relations. And if they are really all of a sudden worried about human rights issues, why aren’t they championing a genuine issue like the right of the unborn to simply live?
Real social justice begins in the womb. But obviously for these trendy social engineers, not all persons have rights – only the militants do, and their radical agenda will be crammed down our throats whether we like it or not. Sorry, but these morally challenged elites at Seven are simply out of touch with the real world. They are not about representing Australian values, but are instead just promoting cultural Marxism.
I for one won’t take this lying down. Indeed, I have already made a stink about this. And I suggest you do just the same – and pronto. Please email Channel Seven and let them know you are dead set against this radical social engineering. You can contact them here: au.tv.yahoo.com/sunrise/contact-us/the-sunrise-team/
And please do it now.
