Yesterday the NBC employee, Carson Daly, who we all wonder how the FUCK he keeps on working ..made a gay slur yesterday, that was a lil bit of a nasty dig ..that gay folks really aren't tough..by insinuating that if there were gay people on a hijacked jet .. they would NOT be able to defend it.
i was pissed...Here's the Story and audio HERE and of course..Carson is doing the customary meeting with GLAAD... etc etc etc.. is it me or Does GLAAD lose its PUNCh ..cuz it seems like once a week they demand an apology from some moron...
Alice Hoagland ... the mother of Mark Bingham ... has a message for the radio host ... saying,
"Yes, my gay son was known in our family for bringing me flowers on my birthday and Mother’s Day. He also was known for careening down the rugby pitch, and, on the morning of September 11, 2001, for charging unarmed down the aisle of a doomed Boeing 757 to face knife-wielding Islamist thugs in a hijacked cockpit."
She adds, "No one among his pick-up team of fellow passengers was asking 'Are you straight? Are you gay?' No one doubted that a guy who weighed 220 and stood 6’4” tall -- who could run over a charging opponent on the field, and ran with the bulls in Pamplona earlier that summer -- would be an asset to a desperate group trying to overcome a threat onboard an airliner."
"The world has its share of strong, heroic gay men. Gay men in sports uniforms and military uniforms have been winning America’s games and fighting America’s battles for a long time: quietly, humbly, and in the face of vicious bigotry."
"I hope you and I may have an opportunity to talk sometime. I prefer to believe you didn’t mean to offend. Good luck to you."
