Intolerant Left strikes again: HGTV forced to cancel TV show for hosts’ traditional marriage stand

I am always amazed at the tolerance of the liberal progressive Left. They’re just so very accepting of views in opposition to their own — especially the radical liberal gay Left. It’s funny how the “Coexist” bumper stickers encourage us to accommodate a theocratic-political totalitarian belief system that believes in death as a punishment for homosexuality — yet you don’t hear a peep from those oh-so-tolerant pushing their gay agenda.

And here is another example of their kind benevolence, as reported over at BizPac Review, ” the HGTV network is the latest high-profile company taking a public stand for the progressives’ liberal agenda by punishing those who don’t fall into line. A new show “Flip it Forward,” scheduled to debut in October has been pulled after liberal lobbying group Right Wing Watch put pressure on the network.”

Remember how Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, got fired from his own company because of his support of Proposition 8 in California for traditional marriage back in 2008? Here we go again.

The real estate show, starring twins David and Jason Benham, was promoted as “leveraging their good-natured sibling rivalry to help families find a fixer-upper and transform it into the dream home they never thought they could afford.” When HGTV became aware that the brothers are pro-life and pro-traditional marriage, and have spoken out on the issues, they suddenly lost their entertainment value.

Shortly after the announcement of the show last month, Right Wing Watch began preparing “evidence” of “extremism” based largely on the behavior of the twins’ father, Flip Benham, who was a life-long activist for pro-life causes like Operation Save America and Operation Rescue, according to the group’s research.

Apparently HGTV doesn’t support the Constitutional rights of freedom of speech and expression. We already know the liberal progressive socialists — those really tolerant folks – don’t.

What type of nation are we becoming? I can tell you — one that is fascist and tyrannical, allowing a radical minority to dominate and destroy anyone opposing their agenda. HGTV issued a statement and tweeted Wednesday saying it is “not moving forward” with the series, but neglected to say why.

So, a show designed to help others realize the American dream of owning a home is cancelled because the two brothers believe in traditional marriage?

Well, I believe in traditional marriage. I support civil unions but I believe marriage should be defined as between one man and one woman.

If your “pursuit of happiness” is defined as being with someone of the same sex, fine, — but that doesn’t mean I have to change my principles, values and my “pursuit of happiness” to acquiesce to yours.

This radical gay agenda is destroying lives and businesses. It is the most intolerant movement in America. Funny, it seems they do have something in common with radical Islamists after all.
