Topic: Media Research Center
Mysterious Media Research Center sports blogger Jay Maxson has found someone he hates with as much passion as Colin Kaepernick and Barack Obama, and it's the gays and anything that might be remotely considered gay, like basic human decency and compassion for one's fellow man.
Consider Maxson's July 5 rant against a columnist who questioned "toxic masculinity" in baseball, which obviously means that we must succumb to "LGBT fascists":
This is not my father's issue of The Sporting News anymore. A minor league baseball writer fronting as a major league LGBT activist for the publication claims Major League Baseball has a problem with "toxic masculinity" and that by allowing "Christian Night" at the ballpark, teams are negatively offsetting "pride nights." If Jessica Quiroli, alias #heels on the field, had her way, baseball would also succumb to the ongoing feminization of the American male.
Quiroli opened her piece by zeroing in on Toronto outfielder Kevin Pillar, who got into hot water when he hurled a less-than-masculine insult at a rival pitcher earlier this season. "But he didn’t just lash out; he resorted to using a homophobic word to express his anger," she writes. "In that moment, he didn’t just expose his own faults, but the distance MLB still has to go in order to guide players on a deeper level."
Of course that deeper level means ball players should be robotically programmed with a healthy fear of the LGBT fascists and do their bidding.
Maxson went on to justify homophobia in baseball because two players were suspended for their anti-gay slurs: "Neither player was at the time fearful of homosexuals, but you can bet they have a big-league phobia about the clout of LGBT activists now."
The next day, the words "gay rodeo" were enough to set Maxson off on another gay-bashing screed:
The Washington Post sports section is suddenly showing a lot of interest in unusual events. If you're saying there must be an agenda behind it, you're absolutely right! The Post's story on a homosexual rodeo follows the typical major metro daily script on liberal issues and people: portray them as sympathetic figures doing normal things. Normalize the illegal or the unusual. Help the LGBT agenda occupy yet another part of the culture until it is awash in the rainbow flag.
Roman Stubbs normally covers University of Maryland sports, but recently made a stunning departure from his normal beat by detouring to Harrisburg, Pa., for some agenda reporting. That was the site of the sparsely attended Keystone State Gay Rodeo. It's run by the International Gay Rodeo Association, which has more defunct chapters than active, but it's newsworthy to the Post and worth brownie points with LGBT activists.
Stubbs' story focuses on Louis Varnado and Andy Pittman, rodeo competitors ... and husbands: "The married couple from Upper Marlboro shared a kiss and whispered good luck to each other before lining up with the other riders."
Competing against each other in the pole (and gender) bending competition, Pittman "beat his husband's time" and then "gave his husband a thumb's up."
Maxson obviously (and egotistically) believes the rest of America should be as squicked out by people of the same sex showing affection for each other as he is, as his concluding rant amply demonstrates:
Homosexual rodeos would not be complete without a little romance either. Stubbs tells how Mark Smith married Floyd Zwiers in a ceremony in the middle of a rodeo arena. A photo embedded in the story displays the two showing off their wedding rings.
"And while it is not every rodeo that (International Gay Rodeo Association president Bruce) Gros officiates a wedding, those are the kind of celebrations that tie the organization together," Stubbs says, probably grabbing for a tissue by now.
Some of these rodeo hands said they feel snubbed by mainstream rodeo, but the Professional Bull Riders organization has contacted Gros about a relationship in the future. “What we’re looking forward to is the day that there are out cowboys and cowgirls competing in the professional level, but that has not yet happened,” he said.
Maybe that's because many Americans, in a majority of states, were disgusted and disenfranchised when activist Supreme Court justices mandated same-sex marriage as the law of the land. They voted for marriage as the union of one man and one woman because it's been the bedrock of civilization, and the High Court threw out their votes. They won't be amused by the way this story ends either.
Varnado won some money at the Keystone rodeo, prompting this line from Stubbs: "Pittman gently wrapped his arm around his husband’s neck and said: “I’m proud of you, baby doll.”
Perhaps if he circulated outside the right-wing MRC retinue, he might figure out that it's a bad idea to dictate someone else's human rights by popular vote.
Does hatred and contempt make one a good blogger for a multimillion-dollar organization? The MRC has apparently decided it does.
