‘If you don’t agree with what we say, we will punish you!’
This, in effect, is what the website “Right Wing Watch” is saying to all Americans. Right Wing Watch is, guess what? A website! One of millions currently on the internet. My blog, Merillion, is a “website.” You got a blog? You got a website that isn’t a blog? My point being that Right Wing Watch is just one of many blogs & websites.
So why did HGTV bow down to them? Look at this:
“After the group Right Wing Watch reported the twins who star in HGTV’s recently greenlit reality series Flip It Forward are anti-gay activists…”
Wow! The group “Right Wing Watch!” It’s official! I never heard of them, but they sound so important!
No, they’re just one website out of many. Did HGTV know of them? Did HGTV even vet them? Why did HGTV consider what Right Wing Watch said as having even the slightest bit of importance? Did HGTV think for themselves, or did they act out of fear? THEY ACTED OUT OF FEAR – NO THOUGHT INVOLVED! Therein lies one of the secrets of Marxist, Socialist, Left-wing Liberals who want to control YOU – AND ME – AND ALL AMERICANS!
This is where we have a Big problem. Think about this the next time there is a punishment of any kind for SAYING THE “WRONG” THING, WRITING THE “WRONG” THING or BELIEVING THE “WRONG” THING.
“HGTV Pulls New Home-Flipping Series After Report Emerges Identifying Its Stars as Anti-Gay Activists”

“After the group Right Wing Watch reported the twins who star in HGTV’s recently greenlit reality series Flip It Forward are anti-gay activists, the network said this morning it had given the hook to the series, which was set to debut in October…”
“After a decade of flipping houses for profit, brothers David Benham and Jason Benham now help families buy the homes they never thought they could afford…”
In response to the actions of HGTV, on May 8, 2014 Merillion contacted HGTV by email, as follows:
Re: BENHAM BROTHERS’ SHOW PULLED FROM HGTV BECAUSE THEY HAVE OPINIONS THAT DIFFER FROM OTHER OPINIONS, AND BECAUSE THEY HAVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH.
And is HGTV so self-righteous and pure as the driven snow, or is HGTV Politically Correct?
A tv show is a tv show. If it’s a good show, people will watch it. People connected to the good show will make money.
An American who has freedom of speech, which is by the way how America operates, is free to speak and to have opinions & thoughts.
The above two statements are separate from one another. The twins’ opinions have nothing to do with the show they would be a part of.
When you at HGTV read this report from Right Wing Watch, what was the first thing that came into your minds? I’m willing to bet that it was FEAR. Fear that the ACLU would file suit against you? Fear that you would lose viewers? Fear of not being “politically correct” and not thinking the way everyone is SUPPOSED to think?
Political Correctness is a Cancer upon the earth, and now you, HGTV, are a part of it.
