Why Complain about Homophobic Crap on Fox News When You Can Laugh at the Death of a Beloved Conservative Icon?
Some guy named John Gibson, who appears on the so-called Fox News Channel, has made homophobic remarks about the actor from Brokeback Mountain who died a few days ago. Well, that sure is surprising. Discussion of this is taking place on the radio as well as in the blogosphere. Example here.
Instead of complaining about Gibson being obnoxious, though, why not do him one better? Rather than gripe, let's respond with a rousing chorus of the MDC song "John Wayne Was a Nazi."
They first recorded this circa 1981, while based in Austin and playing as the Stains.Sure wish I still had the single. The flipside was something like "No War, No KKK, No Fascist USA."
Back when nobody could imagine that a black presidential candidate would ever try to make nice about Ronald Reagan. A certain clarity about things does seem to get lost over time.
