The LGBT freakouts are continuing at the Media Research Center.
Alex Nitzberg -- who we last saw having a transgender freakout -- complained that "CBSNews.com published propaganda pieces promoting the radical left’s perverted LGBT agenda" by discussing gender identity. He ranted: "In the twisted logic of the choose-your-own-gender world of contrived gender identities, boys can be girls, girls can be boys and anyone can declare themselves to be something in between, a combination of both or something entirely foreign to the male/female dichotomy." He says it like that's a bad thing.
Sarah Stites huffs in an April 1 post noting awards given out by GLAAD: "When it comes to media portrayal, the LGBT community has one mission – promoting complete and total acceptance. Tolerance is no longer enough." She went on to complain about a "burgeoning movement of beauty vloggers working to de-stigmatize male makeup usage."
Nitzberg struck again in an April 8 post whining that "NBCNews.com’s pro-LGBTQ propaganda arm “NBC OUT” recently announced that it will create a “#Pride30 List” for “Pride Month” this June," complaining further how "many media outlets jettison journalistic standards by blatantly promoting and celebrating the LGBT movement." Does that mean the MRC jettisons any journalistic standards it pretends to have by attacking the LGBT movement at every opportunity?
Lindsay Kornick grumbled that the ABC show "Imaginary Mary" featured a plotline in which a high school student stages a rival version of the musical "Grease" starring her brother in the lead female role.
That was followed by a Sarah Stites freakout over Dove soap putting a "transgender 'mother'" in an ad, as well as "a large number of transgender-themed ads within the beauty sphere."
And Matt Philbin turns in a reliable freakout over a claim that Timon and Pumbaa might be a same-sex couple in an upcoming live-action remake of "The Lion King":
That whirring sound you hear is Walt Disney spinning in his grave, or his cryogenic vault, or whatever his final resting place really is.
Disney is on a big gay roll. Having won props from the left for making this year’s live action Beauty and the Beast reboot the studio’s “gayest film ever,” why shouldn’t it give The Lion King a similarly fabulous makeover?
And with at least a dozen live action remakes on the slate, it looks like Walt won’t be getting rest anytime soon.
And neither will anyone at the MRC, if their goal is to attack any and every instance of suspected gayness in the media.
