‘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”
| Wednesday May 7, 2014 @ 12:22pm PDT
“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.
n.b. Merillion: My readers – what do You think? Please don’t be afraid to “Talk To Me.”
I’m very worried about this country. America. My country. Are you worried, too? Sometimes I wonder if anybody cares anymore, especially our Senators and Congressmen. They’re on vacation. Obama is campaigning. Yes, yes, the word is “campaigning.” Don’t give me any crap about a “talking tour,” “just want to talk to the people, the “folks,” as he likes to call them.
Everyone’s talking about the 2012 election. It seems nothing will be done until “the election.” Do you know how much damage can be done to this country in a year and a half? By people behind the scenes at the White House? By 2012, I don’t know if there will be much left to be president of. Room only for a dictator.
And we have a Tea Party leader who had the nerve to ask Obama the question, “What about Biden calling us terrorists?” A person on Fox News found that the question made her “so uncomfortable, I just don’t like that it happened.”
Oh Dear! And one of the men said he thinks we should only ask questions regarding the issues, such as jobs and the economy; that it was wrong to confront Obama that way. (He was only there to shake hands & smile, not to be confronted with reality.)
Why do some people treat Obama like he’s a frail, delicate child – always defending him, always giving him a pass. What’s with these people? If he’s so damn delicate, he should not even be in the position of President. People, stop with the crap! Grow up! Open your eyes! Question not only Obama, question what is going on – our defense budget gets cut; the president doesn’t care about whether we have jobs. He keeps repeating: “the folks out there worry about not having jobs; they worry about food on the table; they worry about their kids.”
Obama doesn’t really care about any of that. Talks a good game. He worries about getting elected in 2012. And I worry about what our country will lose by 2012. We’ll lose more jobs; we’ll lose more of our defenses; we’ll lose more of our rights; and more of our freedoms, inch by inch, day by day, regulation by regulation. And I don’t know if anyone cares enough to stop it – to stop it NOW, before our beloved country is dead and gone.
Please let me have your thoughts, your opinions – I welcome them. Leave a Reply, below:
“Government Waste By the Numbers: Report Identifies Dozens of Overlapping Programs”
Published March 01, 2011 | FoxNews.com
“This report confirms what most Americans assume about their government. We are spending trillions of dollars every year and nobody knows what we are doing. The executive branch doesn’t know. The congressional branch doesn’t know. Nobody knows,” Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., said in a statement Tuesday morning. “This report also shows we could save taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars every year without cutting services.”

ARE YOU ENRAGED ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON IN AMERICA? I SURE AM!
I’M ANGRY BECAUSE A CEMETERY IN THE UNITED STATES HAS REMOVED THE HORIZONTAL BARS ON ALL THE CROSSES THERE;
BECAUSE JOE BIDEN SAYS WALL STREET HAS CAUSED OUR PRESENT ECONOMIC DILEMMA. NO, JOE, YOU AND YOUR LEFT-WING DEMOCRATS DID THAT. BARNEY FRANK DID THAT. OBAMA DID THAT BY SPENDING LIKE IT’S HIS OWN MONEY, INCREASING BY AN ASTONISHING AMOUNT OF MONEY AN ALREADY INCREDIBLY HIGH DEBT AND DEFICIT. POLITICIANS WHO ARE OBSESSED WITH THEIR OWN RE-ELECTIONS DID THAT;
BECAUSE I HEAR OBAMA & MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TELLING ME THAT WE THE PEOPLE WILL HAVE TO MAKE SACRIFICES TO HELP OUR DESTROYED ECONOMY. WE HAVE TO SACRIFICE? NO, YOU MAKE THE SACRIFICES. YOU DO WITHOUT YOUR PAYCHECKS. LOTS OF U.S. CITIZENS ARE DOING WITHOUT THEIR PAYCHECKS BECAUSE OF YOU!
BECAUSE THOSE WE ELECTED DIDN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT OUR DEBT AND DEFICIT A LONG TIME AGO;
BECAUSE PRES. GEORGE BUSH IGNORED PLEAS FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO PUT A STOP TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, AND OBAMA AND HIS ADMINISTRATION NOT ONLY DO NOTHING, BUT ALSO TREAT THE GOVERNOR AND THE PEOPLE OF ARIZONA AS ENEMIES OF AMERICA;
BECAUSE I DON’T SEE JOHN BOEHNER STANDING BEFORE US AND ACTING LIKE HE’S ENRAGED ABOUT WHERE THIS ADMINISTRATION IS TAKING US. WHERE’S THE ANGER FROM REPUBLICANS, CONSERVATIVES? IS EVERYTHING GOING ON TODAY OK WITH ALL OF YOU?
BECAUSE SO MANY OF OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS DON’T CARE WHAT HAPPENS TO THIS COUNTRY. HEY, DON’T YOU LIVE HERE, TOO?
BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY LIARS IN THIS ADMINISTRATION. I’M ANGRY THAT THOSE WHO KNOW ABOUT THIS DISHONESTY ARE AFRAID TO CALL OUT THE LIARS, AND IF THEY COURAGEOUSLY DO CALL THEM OUT, THEY ARE ASKED TO APOLOGIZE! NO MORE APOLOGIZING FOR TELLING THE TRUTH!
PEOPLE YOU AND I HAVE ELECTED TO OFFICE, TRUSTING IN THEIR INTEGRITY, ARE LIARS. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. I PARTICULARLY HATE PRESIDENTS, SENATORS, & REPRESENTATIVES WHO LIE TO ME.
I’M ANGRY BECAUSE IN RED HOOK, BROOKLYN, CITIZENS WANT TO HONOR SEVEN FIREFIGHTERS KILLED ON 9/11 BY NAMING A STREET FOR THEM “SEVEN IN HEAVEN.” A GROUP OF ATHEISTS IS FIGHTING AGAINST THIS BECAUSE THE WORD “HEAVEN” IS USED, & THEY FEEL “INSULTED.” MESSAGE TO THIS GROUP: BE AN ATHEIST. I DON’T GIVE A CRAP WHAT YOU ARE. I’LL ALLOW YOU TO BE AN ATHEIST. AND YOU WILL ALLOW ME TO BE A CHRISTIAN, OR WHATEVER I DAMN WELL WANT TO BE. WHY DON’T YOU SHUT UP.
THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WANTS TO DESTROY THE UNITED STATES. HOW ABOUT THAT, CONGRESS?
AND ABOUT OUR CONSTITUTION: WE AMERICANS WHO CARE ABOUT AMERICA WILL NOT ALLOW YOU WHO DON’T CARE TO DO AWAY WITH THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
BE IT KNOWN BY ALL:
THE WORDS OF THE AMERICAN “PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE” ARE NOT A TOPIC FOR LEFT-WING DISCUSSION.
THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES DO NOT REQUIRE THE APPROVAL OF MEXICO.
WHEN LEFT-WING DEMOCRATS RESORT TO CALLING OTHERS “RACISTS!” IT’S BECAUSE THEY ARE UNABLE TO CONFRONT THE TRUTH.
FROM THE STRUCTURE AND LEGALITY OF ELLIS ISLAND, WHICH HELPED TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT, TO THE CHAOS AND DEATH OF THE AMERICAN/MEXICAN BORDER; TO THE CHAOS AND DEATH IN NORWAY – THERE IS A CONNECTION, A THREAD.
I HEARD THAT WE MUST NOT USE CAPITAL LETTERS WHEN WRITING BLOGS, ETC., AS PEOPLE WILL THINK WE ARE “SHOUTING.”
I AM SHOUTING:

Congress Gets an American President — For a Day
“Perhaps, worst of all, they have had to endure a nauseating rewriting of their own history and sacrifice by a President who errantly speaks of the great contributions that Islam made from early on in our history in the development of this country. Today Mr. Netanyahu came in front of the entire Congress of the United States “not to bury her, but to praise her.” It was as if for one day we had an American President again.” Read entire article here:
I’M REALLY ANGRY WHEN I HEAR PEOPLE LIKE LOU DOBBS, JUAN WILLIAMS, AND CHRIS WALLACE STATE THAT ISRAELI P.M. NETANYAHU “LECTURED” PRES. OBAMA.
THE PRIME MINISTER DID NO SUCH THING! I WATCHED THEIR CONVERSATION JUST LIKE YOU DID. MR. NETANYAHU SPOKE TO MR. OBAMA IN A POLITE WAY, LEADER TO LEADER, STATING HIS CASE VERY CLEARLY.
MESSRS. DOBBS, WILLIAMS, AND WALLACE: YOUR DISHONEST STATEMENTS ARE FAWNING, WHINING, AND SELF-RIGHTEOUS.
Hey, everybody, what’s happenin’?
You know what??
No one is doing anything about bringing America, the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, back from the abyss. And NOW is the time to do it. Can’t wait for the 2012 election, can’t wait for Congress to come back from their holiday recess.
I don’t hear anyone speaking out about what is going on with this White House, this government. But us, all of us, we know “what’s happenin’,” don’t we? In the House and in the Senate, Republicans, Independents, and Democrats know too, and they know a lot more than they’re telling us, the American citizens.
But here we all sit, with our headaches and stomach-aches starting every time we listen to Obama on the TV. Our country is in grave danger, and all we do is talk, talk, talk. Listen to and watch the Conservative talk shows – they’re right, most of the time. But it’s talk!
America, it’s action time! And if there will be talk by the Congress, speeches, townhalls, and appearances, why must it all be wishy-washy and namby-pamby? And “respectful?” When do we get someone up there who isn’t afraid? Who speaks with honesty, who says outright what we are all thinking? Who actually shocks us by stating our thoughts out loud? My God, what a freedom that would be! How liberating that would be! It would be like winning a war!
It would be winning the war.
I’m sorry to be writing this,
It makes me very sad
But I have to apologize,
Or I’ll feel bad.
You think I’m wimpy?
Think I’m weak?
Think I’m being mild and meek?
For this I do apologize
But I must be polite
Apology required? I don’t want to fight.
My country’s being torn apart
Destroyed left and right
My nerves are shot, I feel so ill
That I can’t sleep at night.
But all that doesn’t matter,
I have to be PC
Nothing else matters
When you are me.
I want to make a statement
But I know it isn’t wise.
If I tell the truth courageously
I’ll have to apologize.
I’m sorry I’m the way I am
My faults I can’t disguise.
I might be right or I may be wrong,
But I have to apologize!
If you hate my apologies,
And my poem you despise,
Well, what can I tell you?
