Push the envelope even further? Considering the contest’s controversial pornified leather-and-lace photo shoots of the recent past, one might expect that the producer of Donald Trump’s yearly strumpet strut may have in mind to drop all pretenses this time around and opt for an all-nude show.
Certainly the “progressive attitude” Lewis is looking for includes promoting the gay-lesbian agenda. The Los Angeles Times reported on January 7:
Jenelle Hutcherson, 26, of Long Beach and Mollie Thomas, 19, of West Hollywood are the first openly gay contestants in the 60-year history of the state pageant, whose winner will go on to compete in Miss USA, the national pageant.
"That Miss California crown would sure look nice atop the 'hawk," Hutcherson said, referring to her Mohawk hairstyle.
The lesbian activists were actively recruited by Trump’s promoters, reports the Times:
Set apart in age, style and background, both Hutcherson and Thomas were approached by pageant recruiters to participate in the beauty contest. Thomas, a part-time UCLA student, said this is her first time in a pageant.
She agreed to compete because it allowed her to represent the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in a positive way, she said. "I'm running for equality and will use this in order to promote visibility on current issues, to become a youth advocate and a role model," Thomas said in an interview.
Pageant maestro Keith Lewis, an outspoken homosexual activist, notoriously bared his blatant bias during the 2008 competition, in which Christian contestant Carrie Prejean, Miss California, was attacked for stating her belief that marriage should be restricted to heterosexuals. The question had been posed to her by Perez Hilton, a militant homosexual activist and gay celebrity gossipest whose qualifications to be a Miss USA “judge” appear to be his insatiable craving for publicity and the proclivity for buggery he shares with Lewis.
Hilton not only took unfair advantage of his position as judge to ask Miss Prejean a very atypical and politically loaded question, but then publicly insulted her because he didn’t like her “politically incorrect” response. Showing further his intolerance, Hilton then attacked Prejean in his video blog, calling her “a dumb b****.”
This was too much for HollywoodGrind.com, a Tinsel Town website, which reported:
Intolerant of people who don’t agree with him Perez got so angry he made a video calling Prejean the b word, and said he would have gone up on stage if she won, and snatched her crown off her head, then he would have run out the door.
Well, a gay activist that was in the audience actually got into a fight with Miss New Mexico’s mother in the hallway after the show. Lately, gays who aren’t getting their way are showing no class, and resorting to breaking the law to get their way, which isn’t unusual.
HG completely respects Prejean for saying what SHE believes. No one should try to blackmail anyone into saying a scripted answer with the threat of losing the pageant, but that’s what happened. We support freedom of speech 100%. We support Prejean, not gay fascists like Hilton.
Instead of supporting and defending Miss Prejean’s right candidly to state her beliefs, Keith Lewis joined Hilton's “gay fascist” attack on the young woman, claiming to be “saddened and hurt” by her statement. Lewis manfully (and somewhat incoherently) averred:
As co-director of the Miss California USA, I am personally saddened and hurt that Miss California believes marriage rights belong only to a man and a woman. I believe all religions should be able to ordain what unions they see fit. I do not believe our government should be able to discriminate against anyone and religious beliefs have no politics in the Miss California family.
Miss USA’s other co-director, Shanna Moakler, jumped into the fray as well — siding with Hilton and Lewis, not Miss Prejean. That was to be expected; after all, the sexually “liberated” Moakler, a former Playboy centerfold and Hugh Hefner bunny, is also an advocate of homosexual “marriage.”
Lewis and Moakler then went on a campaign to fire Carrie Prejean and cancel her Miss California contract. Lewis even violated the law by publicly and maliciously revealing private medical information about Miss Prejean. Did “The Donald” exercise his famous executive authority and tell Lewis, Moakler, and Hilton: “You’re fired!” for unethical, unprofessional, and illegal behavior? Not at all; Lewis continues to use the Miss USA program as a platform for “pushing the envelope” of the sexual-social revolution.
Apparently, the “conservative” Trump is OK with that, which shouldn’t surprise, as he has always been comfortable with the Hugh Hefner-Playboy-Hollywood-Sin City set.
