I didn’t think that I’d be proven right so quickly. It was only yesterday that I blogged about Liberal haters and for all of you that said, “Oh Al come on you’ve got it all wrong its Neo-Cons who hate.” In a classic case of my bias is acceptable but yours is not Barry Manilow has crossed the line regarding what is acceptable in America.
Here’s why, I challenge you to think, when is the last time you heard or read that a Conservative refused to appear on a television or radio show because the host was black?
Better yet search your memory can you recall of a time that a Conservative publicly cancelled a scheduled television engagement because the host was homosexual or lesbian?
No you can’t you know why? Liberals have so successfully forced their issues on society and everyone knows that you put your life or career in jeopardy if you so much as have a private thought that is not in agreement with liberal doctrine and acceptance of Liberal ideas and causes. Don’t believe me?
Just ask former Grey’s Anatomy actor Isaiah Washington or General Peter Pace both men lost their jobs for expressing politically incorrect ideas. Ideas that were their truth, and truth for many Americans. Both men were forced to apologize for their own truth. You remember the force recantations both men gave for having their own personal truths.
Funny thing about truth, if you are former New Jersey Governor, James E. McGreevey, you can announce before your wife and the world that, your truth is that you are a gay American when the actual truth is what you really are is an adulterous malfeasant government nepotist who placed your unqualified gay lover on the State pay role so that you could play footsy at work while living a lie with your wife. (Some truth!)
McGreevey left office because of malfeasance in elected office not because he was a “gay American.” Whatever that means? Yet McGreevey knowing that it was politically correct to claim that he was gay offered that little tidbit of information in a blatant attempt to mitigate the circumstances that he faced while pandering to gays for sympathy and support.
It didn’t work though. A married Governor just can’t hire his unqualified lover so that they can have sexual encounters on government time no matter how patriotic he claims to be.
But least I digress to far Barry Manilow confirms all of my assessments of yesterday about Liberal Democrats and their unfounded and all consuming hate for Conservatives.
Barry Manilow is a Liberal Hater.
TMZ has learned that legendary singer Barry Manilow has pulled out of his scheduled appearance on “The View” tomorrow — because he strongly disagrees with host Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s conservative view! Paging Rosie O’Donnell!And on Barry’s own website he posts ;
In an exclusive statement to TMZ, Barry says, “I strongly disagree with her views. I think she’s dangerous and offensive. I will not be on the same stage as her.” Barry, taking a stand!
A message from Barry...Earth to Barry! You’re not speaking love you’re speaking hate! And the views that are dangerous and offensive in America Barry are the views which try to censor free speech and the free exchange of ideas that would be your views not Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s views!
I wanted to let you know that I will no longer be on The View tomorrow as scheduled. I had made a request that I be interviewed by Joy, Barbara or Whoopi, but not Elisabeth Hasselback. Unfortunately, the show was not willing to accommodate this simple request so I bowed out.
It’s really too bad because I've always been a big supporter of the show, but I cannot compromise my beliefs. The good news is that I will be on a whole slew of other shows promoting the new album so I hope you can catch me on those.
Barry Your little passive aggressive attack against a 5’3” 105 lb Conservative woman is typical of the left’s attempts to stifle all Conservatives.
Further your transparent attempt to negatively define Elisabeth Hasselbeck is irreprehensible and will not be tolerated by fair minded people in America. We are on to the Democrats tactic of negatively defining Conservatives and conservative issues and we are not going to allow you liberals to continue to do it unscathed.
You don’t like Ms. Hasselbeck’s ideas so you aren’t going to be on the show, an opportunity to promote your new release? That is straight repressive neo-liberal fascism Barry. And not very smart business sense!
How would you like it if no show ever invited you to appear to promote your songs because you have an effeminate appearance? You would scream discrimination to the high heavens so why would you think that you can discriminate against a person with Conservative ideas Barry?
If the CD sales on your new release suffer from this episode it is your own doing. Barry you have relegated yourself to the company of the Dixie Chicks, a group that like you didn’t realize that it was their music not their political punditry that people supported.
The bottom line is Barry you owe Elisabeth Hasselbeck and fifty percent of the American people, who by the way have similar views to Ms. Hasselbeck (who voted to elect George Bush twice) an apology and until you do I don’t care how many other shows you appear on or where you appear in Vegas, until you apologize no one especially conservatives should patronize anything that you do!
You want to spread hate for Conservatives, Barry? Fine don’t expect anymore support from the group that you hate. Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a part of that group. So apologize before what’s left of your career is adversely affected.
And after you apologize to Ms. Hasselbeck and the half of America that is Conservative here is some sage advice for the future…
Shut up and sing!
