Talk about ironic…
I guess Perez Hilton is more of an idiot than I thought. After the Miss USA gay marriage fiasco, in which he called Miss California Carrie Prejean a “dumb bitch” for saying she supports the rights of Americans to choose whether they are for or against gay marriage although she personally opposes it, he’s posted this quote on his blog:
“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt”
– Abraham Lincoln
Really, Perez? Really?
I guess he doesn’t see the irony in putting up that particular quote.
He apparently didn’t take President Lincoln’s advice to heart, seeing as how he can’t keep his damn mouth shut. And all it does is make him look more and more idiotic. Here he is, trying to present himself as some kind of political commentator who can credibly speak about current events and hot-button political topics like gay marriage, when all he does is write snarky crap about celebrities. What, because he’s gay, he’s suddenly an authority on every angle of the argument over gay marriage? He’s a blogger notorious for drawing drips of semen from celebrities’ mouths and posting crotch shots and nip slips. He delights in tearing others down. And hey, that works for him. He has a huge following and has turned it into a pretty lucrative business. And that’s great, but it certainly doesn’t make him any kind of political genius. In fact, I’d wager that the guy would be lucky to be able to claim average intelligence.
I think my favorite part of his idiotic arguments is how she shouldn’t have said what she said because she comes from California, who recently voted for Prop. 8, and therefore, she doesn’t represent Californians properly. Yes, he really has used that exact argument, and multiple times. Here’s one example.
Um, Perez, if most Californians voted for Prop. 8, which stated that marriage was to be kept between a man and a woman, then doesn’t that mean she actually is pretty damn representative of Californians? Just because most of you liberals in California are insane moonbats doesn’t mean all Californians are, much as you might close your eyes and try to pretend the sane ones don’t exist.
In any case, maybe Perez should take the advice of President Lincoln and follow the words of wisdom presented in the quote that Perez posted on his own website.
Oh, and just for fun, here’s how the apparent majority of every day Americans feel about this controversy:
She is the perfect representation of what America is – we stand up for what we believe and defend it no matter the cost!
Why is it that Perez Hilton can insult all the people who dont share his view but he can insult us? He is the one who was rude and insultin
She was asked her opinion and she gave it. Giving a neutral answer just to please that judge would have meant she was lying. he was wrong
I think the liberal media needs to practice their tolerance with other people. They are not always (and rarely) right.
Good for her! Our country was founded on Christian principles, NOT the way man has manipulated the Constitution to justify selfish desires.
I support gay marriage. I knew she blew it with her response. I do respect her for being honest and true to herself.
She should be respected for saying what she believes and not conforming to every pressure put on her. Every American should learn from her.
Personally I couldn’t be prouder of Carrie for saying what many people feel but are too intimidated to say.
I’m openly gay and believe the answer was CORRECT!! Perez Hilton has showed that he is without CLASS, MORAL, or VALUE by calling her names.
She was right, he was wrong. I don’t share her view but nobody asked me my opinion, if they had the judge would have nothing to cry about
Hanging in the balance doesnt mean bowing down to other peoples views.. it’s simply being open minded and representing ALL AMERICANS
The question was inappropriate. not the answer. The contestants have the right to their opinion. Answer with your opinion or lie? No way
The judge asked a politically-charged question, then was upset by the answer. Any answer would be political. She answered honestly, kudos
I guess it’s okay to have an opinion as long as it agrees with Perez Hilton’s opinion. She is a very courageous young woman and I share her belief. In my opinion, the Miss USA Pageant needs to be a little more discriminating in selecting their judges.
