What is it with beauty pageants and gays. On the well worn heels of Anita Bryant, Carrie Prejean is picking up the antigay banner. Actually, there couldn’t be a better spokeswoman to protect ‘opposite’ marriage from the evil gays. Bryant who pitched her Florida OJ along with her brand of Christian hate against gays in Dade county. That campaign reached all the way across country to California where John Briggs was pushing legislation to bar gay teachers from the classroom.
That was 30 years ago and the hate crown, defacto has been passed to Prejean. A perfect fit apparently because she was a keynote speaker at a Republican confab over the weekend featuring those ’Family’ organizations ‘Family Research Council‘ (what research & where is what I‘d like to know) , Focus on the Family Action (focus on who?) and the American Family Association (associate how?) and appearances by Mitt Romney, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Mike Huckabee, Bill O’Reilly among other conservative jackhammers.
Prejean is “speaking the truth” as directed by God, she says, against same-sex marriage. I guess that’s as good a cover as any to deflect attention away from her nudie photo spread.
When she lost the Miss USA contest “God chose me for that moment..he had a plan for me that day…he knew I would be the only one to stick up for him.” and certainly. “he knew I was strong enough to get through all the junk that I’ve been through.” she told the rapurous crowd. I mean really, the gown competition alone is a trial by fire.
Course gays were not the only group on the enemies list. Speeches at the conference included topics such as “Thugocracy – Fighting The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy,” “The Threat Of Illegal Immigration,” “Global Warming Hysteria” and “Obamacare: Rationing Your Life Away.”
The attention from the power brokers to give Prejean the cultural war crown more than makes up for the fact that she missed out on her duties as Miss USA.
Pageant officials claimed that she lost the crown because she was not fulfilling the less glamorous responsibilities of the position, appearances at low profile humanitarian events for instance, but Prejean exposed the real reason she lost. A sinister gay plot by the velvet mafia that cost her her throne. You just can’t trust those boys unless they are doing your hair and nails.
Actually I think it was completely idiotic that Perez Hilton asked her about gay marriage. I mean how is one supposed to be taken seriously on any topic other than world hunger when they are clawing their way to the top of a beauty pageant in pursuit of that crazy crown. Crown or no, Anita would certainly approve. Drink your juice Carrie.
Meanwhile, Carrie is no fool, the best way to keep the gravy running in the trainwreck of a career is to be a right wing, anti-gay mouthpiece.
