Another Case of Liberal Descrimination

It amazes me how liberal democrats can say they take the mantle of equal rights and free speech and at the same time dish out the same level of discrimination and censorship.


TMZ.com reports that Barry Manilow cancelled his appearance on The View because he did not want to be on the same stage as Elizabeth Hasselbeck.  Manilow states “I strongly disagree with [Hasselbeck’s] views. I think she’s dangerous and offensive. I will not be on the same stage as her.”  To their credit, Barbara Walters said it was “too bad” about Barry’s stand and producer Bill Geddie adds “we don’t do that…we support everybody…he’s not going to call the shots.


This is not the only instance of liberal not wanting to be in the vicinity of conservatives.  It’s just the most recent.  Here’s the hypocrisy of the whole situation:


  • Censorship. Liberals support your freedom of speech as long as you agree with liberals or if you don’t, then keep your mouth shut.
  • Discrimination.  Liberals will discriminate against you based on creed and religion.  There’s a reason why Hollywood and the press are mostly comprised of liberals.  Once a liberal finds out that you’re a conservative they automatically label you as closed minded and fanatical. This, my friend, is classic prejudice. 
  • Hatred. Liberal will say that conservatives hate minorities, the poor, etc.  But with even more passion, they can get away with hating a person with opposite views.  They describe any outspoken conservative and evil and hateful, or as Mr. Manilow puts it “dangerous and offensive.”


I have many liberal friends, but I will tell you that when Bush won re-election in 2004, I was not a well-liked person.  It wasn’t for anything that I did personally, but it was based solely on my beliefs.


In response, I did not “hate” my liberal friends when the Democrats took back Congress.  Because they had nothing to do with it.


Your comments are welcome.

The Emmy's Last Night

For those of you care, here’s my thoughts on the Emmy awards broadcast.


As many of my critics can attest, I love to watch television and so I enjoy watching the Emmys.  Unlike the Oscars, I probably have seen most of the entries, especially in the comedy categories.  So with that, let’s get to it.


Censored Moments.  I saw three censored moments and was curious to see what happened:


  1. Ray Romano’s stand up was replaced by preshow footage of the audience.  Here’s what he said.  In making comments about Patricia Heaton and Kelsey Grammer starring in the new show “Back to You”, Ray said “Frasier is screwing my wife.”  Is the s-word in the case forbidden?  I guess from my conservative Christian background, this is just not that big a deal to me.
  2. Katherine Heigl mouthed the real s-word when hearing that she won for best supporting actress.  OK. I’ll give this one to them, but it’s interesting that you can say the s-word on other cable channels after primetime.
  3. Sally Field said “Let's face it, if the mothers ruled the world, there would be no goddamned wars in the first place.”  Other than this being a really stupid statement from a no nothing liberal.  I ask myself, when was “goddamned” a bad word?  I would have let this one slip.


Other thoughts

  1. Ryan Seacrest was OK as host.  I’m glad that they decided to give him and minimal amount of jokes to tell.  This allowed the show to move on quickly, even though it ended late.
  2. I had just seen the second season of Extras and Ricky Gervais was hilarious and deserved the Emmy.  My only thought was that the show was only 6 episodes; it just doesn’t seem like enough.
  3. Loved Ray’s standup, not much into Brad Garrett’s.
  4. Sopranos is finally never going to win another Emmy.
  5. Terry O’Quinn was the only award that I cared about.  When I saw the episode of Lost where we find out how Locke ends up in a wheelchair, I thought, Terry better win than Emmy or to me the whole award process is political.
  6. Another surprise was Conan O’Brien winning the best writing for a variety series.  I was ecstatic that he won, especially over the Daily Show.  This last season was especially brilliant.  Can anyone say “Horny Manatee?”


That’s what I think.  Also, Kim won Design Star, which I thought would happen.  She has the presence to be the host of a show, more than anyone else.  The worst part of the finale was the video montage of all the HGTV hosts saying a few words to the finalists.  I hated this piece, because everyone obviously shot their segment before the finalists were even selected.  The constant barrage of “hey you two deserved it”, “I loved all of your work”, you deserved it was starting to make me gag.  All you needed to do was show someone say, “Hey Todd and Kim, you rock.”  Next time, don’t waste my time with worthless praise and that’s what it was, worthless.

New Website Upgrade

Things are getting real exciting for me and this website.  I've recently upgrade to Coldfusion 8 and there's a lot of cool features.  You can see some of them right now with the WSOP Photo Gallery.  With the latest upgrade from Adobe, they have tightened up the way things are done and as a result I've had to make fixes (good fixes) to the site.  If you're interested in a new home site and would like to take advantage of some of the automated features of this website, let me know.  Contact me at rep@humblefolks.com.
You can see the work that I've done at www.mypalal.com - Alan Ng Home Page. I've been able to link my various blog sites to my main site, so that my main site acts as dashboard of all of my blogs. The main site also help build the Search Engine rankings for each other.
