By now you have all heard about the Perez Hilton / Carrie Prejean dust up. While none of us should be surprised that Hilton got on his blog and launched an ugly screed against the lovely Miss Prejean (conservatives are all too familiar with the intolerance from the party of tolerance), we should be surprised by what Perez Hilton told Larry King on CNN:
“Yes. I do expect Miss USA to be politically correct”.
Wow! That is one stunning admission. In other words, people are no longer allowed to give their honest opinions when asked for. Instead, they must spew politically correct bullshit so that the delicate sensibilities of people (read: agenda pushers) like Perez Hilton are not offended. Well, if that is the case, Perez Hilton can file himself under: Fascist, Fascist, Fascist!
Carrie Prejean was well within her rights to answer that question as she damn well pleased. Perez Hilton also was well within his rights to get on his blog and voice his displeasure with her answer (good taste aside). However, for Perez Hilton to suggest that Carrie Prejean (or any of us for that matter) must parrot some politically correct answers in order to appease people following a certain agenda, is nothing more than thought control. When this type of behavior is promoted we need to call out such promoters for exactly what they are …FASCISTS!
So, Carrie Prejean, you go right ahead and speak your mind as you see fit!
This is America!
