HGTV DECIDES AGAINST FREEDOM!

ANY CHARACTER HERE

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.

“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, HGTVare a part of it.

 

n.b. Merillion: My readers – what do You think? Please don’t be afraid to “Talk To Me.”

Paula Dean & Political Correctness

My letter to the Food Network:

I swear I don’t know what’s happening to people these days.

Paula Dean said a bad word, maybe more than once, just like all of us humans.

She’s being crucified for it.

What are we going to do next to people, besides ruining their careers and their lives?  Lash them in the public square?  What has happened here with Paula Dean reminds me of the time that women were burned at the stake because they were thought to be witches.

She did not commit a crime, didn’t murder anyone, steal anything.

Haven’t any of YOU ever said anything bad?

Why don’t you reinstate her?  You won’t look bad or silly if you do – you’ll look human.  You’ll contribute to the end of “Political Correctness.”  Do you know that the words “politically correct” started as a joke by some comedian?  I know, because I remember it (I don’t remember who the comedian was).  And now look at us!  Lots of people think political correctness is the LAW!

It ISN’T.

Political Correctness is a Cancer upon the earth.  It creates fear in all of us.  Everyone is afraid to say anything.  What is it that we fear?  Maybe what we fear is that we’ll lose our jobs; that our lives and our careers will be ruined.  That people will shun us.  Some people even fear for their safety and the safety of their families!!  POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IS OBSCENE.

A Grand Old Flag

THIS AUTHOR DOES NOT PERMIT “RE-BLOGGING” WITHOUT PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT.

I just finished watching “Yankee Doodle Dandy,” with James Cagney as composer George M. Cohan.  A wonderful movie and a superb actor.  His dancing and his portrayal of Cohan were from his heart; I felt that Cagney himself was passionate about his country.  I think all of us, with some exceptions, have that passion for America.  There’s nothing like this country.  Americans have love in their hearts for each other and for those in other countries, whether they are meeting for the first time during an emergency, or hearing about others’ suffering.

Americans welcome new arrivals to our country.  We want them to be happy here.  However, we want them to come in through the front door, not break our glass and sneak in through the back door.

Our current government officials don’t agree.  Their own agendas come first.  People from other countries, who make superhuman efforts to legally come into America, are confronted with terrible problems.  They wait.

At our border in Arizona, hey, no problem – walk right in, climb right in.  And the President of the United States fights against them – no, not illegal border jumpers – he fights against a Governor of the United States!  And if many of these illegal aliens cause  American citizens to live in fear for their lives or be murdered, this government and president say, “who cares?”

Ever see one of those movies where robbers force their way into a house and beat up the people who live there?  The victims cry and say, “Why are you doing this to us?”  It doesn’t matter “why.”  All that matters is that the home invaders  be STOPPED.   Why they are criminals is their problem.   Stopping them from hurting us is the only problem we have.  Someone else can psychoanalyze them in prison.

Why people in our government and elsewhere want to hurt our country doesn’t matter.  Stopping them from hurting our country is the key.

THE AMERICAN FLAG ISN’T JUST A PIECE OF FABRIC; OUR FLAG IS OUR COUNTRY.  OUR COUNTRY MUST BE PROTECTED AND HONORED.  IT DOESN’T WORK ANY OTHER WAY FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
