BREITBART: We're here, we're queer and we're hypocrites
Andrew Breitbart


Greetings, from a poolside cabana at a trendy boutique hotel in Santa Monica. Oh, how I love
these overpriced overnight stays. The sleek designs. The ambient
music. The uniformly attractive and stylishly dressed young staffs. The plush beds with sheets
of an absurdly high thread count. Weird faucets and weirder
sinks. I bask in the attention to detail. W is my favorite letter. Philippe Starck is a personal

As a realist, I've built into my mindset that the majority heterosexual population is less than
exclusively responsible for creating this and countless
other high-end consumer and artistic experiences. Plus, I have a ton of wonderful gay friends -
even ones "married" and with children. If gay activists
created "A Day Without a Gay" (as they promoted Dec. 10 of last year), I'd be the first to cry
"uncle" - even before Cher. So, accordingly, I make philosophical
and political accommodations. I'm - as the MTV generation says - "gay-friendly."

But lately, color me "gay perturbed." "Gay-friendly," a term once manifestly redundant, now
seems a glaring contradiction.

The gay political-activist community - in my view, a small minority of left-wing agitators
acting on behalf of the whole - has been on a binge of bad public
behavior, and I'm not referring to the bare-buttocked-chaps look and inappropriately placed
sparklers during "pride" parades.

The Mormon community was recently targeted for its support of Proposition 8, the
pro-traditional-marriage initiative in California. Donors to the cause
were isolated and even exposed on online maps. Businesses were targeted. People lost their jobs.

The latest high-profile act on behalf of the "community" came from the Miss USA pageant. Perez
Hilton, the wildly popular Internet gossip and celebrity
hit man, somehow got himself placed as a judge of female beauty at the Donald Trump-sponsored
event. Not to be judgmental, but the apprentice behind that
hire should be fired. But I digress.

At the point in the pageant when the young lovelies are asked questions by those who pick the
winners, the flamboyantly gay man (who by day pries into the
private lives of stars and scrawls human DNA-spewing phalli under the faces of those he doesn't
like) asked Miss California, Carrie Prejean, whether she
approved of gay marriage.

It was a setup.

Miss Prejean is a student at San Diego Christian College - the kind of place activist gay
leftists are at war with, where Christians preach what they practice.

"Out of all the topics I studied up on, I dreaded that one: I prayed I would not be asked about
gay marriage. If I had any other question, I know I would
have won," she told Fox News.

Perez Hilton, whose real name is Mario Armando Lavandeira Jr., affirmed Miss California's fear:
"She lost it because of that question. She was definitely
the front-runner before that." Miss Prejean received zero points from Perez Hilton, who put her
on the spot defending her faith. She finished in second

On display at the Miss USA event was the activist left's pageant of selective bullying, a
concerted strategy to go after low-hanging fruit like Mormons.
But the left leaves off its hit list members in good standing of its normal coalition - its
"rainbow" coalition. In California, one of the gayest places
on the map, blacks and Hispanics - who disproportionately disapprove of same-sex marriage - get
a stunning pass from outraged proponents of gay marriage.

Since 9/11, the highly organized gay left has also been deafeningly silent on Islam's
anti-modern approach to homosexuality - let alone same-sex unions.
The mullahs in Iran somehow get a major pass while the director of the California Musical
Theatre in Sacramento is targeted for ruin. This contradiction
is not subtle. Indeed, it's obvious and pathetic.

In fact, in the beauty contest that was the 2008 presidential race, Barack Obama - the left's
hand-tailored candidate and an icon of "hope" in the gay community
- like his vice president, Joseph R. Biden Jr., shares Miss California's stance on gay marriage.

"I'm a Christian," Mr. Obama told the Chicago Tribune. "And so, although I try not to have my
religious beliefs dominate or determine my political views
on this issue, I do believe that tradition and my religious beliefs say that marriage is
something sanctified between a man and a woman."

Why the pass, fellas?

I fear the vicious and hypocritical path that the activist gay left is headed on will eventually
be met with a backlash. If it already hasn't. Activism
goes both ways and somehow the majority has a way of having its say. Unless the gay community
polices itself better and registers its displeasure against
these pitiful and selective acts of political retribution, many tolerant Americans who hold the
same beliefs on marriage as Mr. Obama and the Dalai Lama
are going to begin to register their displeasure at the voting booth and through consumer
boycotts against those who employ or support the thuggish tactics
of Perez Hilton and his ilk.

"A Day Without a Gay" may become a prolonged and mostly unspoken reality. Trust me, I don't want
to throw out all my John Waters DVDs. But if push comes
to shove, and if the bullying continues, I'm more than willing to stay at a Ramada.
