Shut Up And Sing: The Miss Liberal America Contest April 21, 2009

20090421

I am just calling it like I see it. Sarah Palin who was a former contest for Miss Alaska back in the day, would never would have had a chance with Perez Hilton as a judge.

Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton is calling it the YouTube moment of last night’s Miss USA pageant.

During the final round, Hilton, one of the night’s judges, was chosen to present Miss California, Carrie Prejean, with her final question.

” Vermont recently became the fourth state to legalize same-sex marriage. Do you think every state should follow suit? Why or why not?” he asked.

Hilton was clearly unhappy with her answer, and he let the world know about it on his Web site.

In a video blog that he posted just moments after the pageant ended, Hilton says that Prejean gave the worst answer in pageant history, that she was actually booed. He then goes on to say, “She lost, not because she doesn’t believe in gay marriage. Miss California lost because she’s a dumb –, OK?”

He said that Prejean could have answered that question in a more neutral way by perhaps acknowledging that same-sex marriage is a hot topic in this country and that each state should decide for itself how that issue should be handled.

Prejean, 21, of San Diego, answered that she thought it was great that she lived in a country where a person can choose one or the other, but that in her family, she was raised to believe marriage was between a man and a woman.

What follows is quite ironic as Perez creates a video blog calling Prejan derogatory names when he was a judge at A MISS AMERICA CONTEST. He attempted to defend himself on MSNBC (the perfect place for a misogynistic liberal to go):

Governor Palin you are far too conservative to be Miss USA

Governor Palin you are far too conservative to be Miss USA

So now not only can women not speak their minds on political campaigns, they can’t speak their minds during a contest that supposedly promotes women’s leadership. Sure Miss USA, parade around in your bikini, show them that you can play the harpsichord with your toes, but when it comes to what you really think….SHUT UP YOUR F@#% ING C@%t.

Afrocity’s question is….

WHERE ARE THE FEMINISTS???

Where is the outrage? Oh stupid me. Prejan’s answer was a little bit too conservative for the women at NOW.

Women we really have got to stop it with the double standards. How would you feel if the following questions were asked of you:

If you were ever raped would you have an abortion?
How do you feel about gun laws?
Would you marry a person of another race?
Do you believe in war?
Do you support Israel or Palestine’s position?

How would you feel if your answers to those questions were used to judge your ability to hold a job? Buy a home? Win a Miss USA pageant? Wake up!!!

The Outraged Feminists were Unavailable For Comment

The Outraged Feminists were Unavailiable For Comment

Our freedoms are being jeopardized.

Feminists where are you? In response to all of this Miss California Carrie Prejean said that “she prays for Miss USA judge blogger Perez Hilton”.
Meanwhile, I pray for the feminist movement”

The New Symbol of the Feminist Movement. Shhh She's A Conservative

    The quick clip that I saw of her answering this very leading question resulted in more cheers than boos. I don’t find it terribly surprising, however, that Ms. Hilton (not a typo) only heard what he wanted to hear. Just another case of liberal ‘open mindedness’. It seems to me that for many liberals their minds are so open they have apparently fallen out.

    I know this is in no way relevant to the topic, but I think you should take a look at this guy’s blog. Kindred spirits perhaps?

    Well, let’s face it. This girl IS dumb. Her answer was not well thought out, eloquently expressed or logical. But in fairness to her, it was a gotcha question with no good answer. She wasn’t sophisticated enough to realize that only women and gay men watch pageants, and to answer in a way that was true to her beliefs without being offensive.

    In any event, it’s foolish to even include questions for the contestants in a beauty pageant. It’s nothing more than a cattle show to select the handsomest heifer. To pretend it’s about scholarships, giving back to the community, or anything else is disingenuous.

    • Nancy Says:

      That’s not fair. She is not dumb.

      Her answer was not eloquent, but she was nervous. Do you never get tongue tied when you are nervous?

      I heard her on several talk shows yesterday and she was very thoughtful and eloquent. She said she started to go down the PC path with her answer but caught herself and decided to be honest about what she felt. I admire her integrity.

  4. WMCB Says:

    I was appalled to see that. First of all, what the heck do political questions like that have to do with the contest? I disagree with her on gay marriage, but my beef is that those questions have no business even being asked as some sort of litmus test in settings totally unrelated to that issue. She’s entitled to her belief, and the subject has nothing to do with what she’s competing for.

    Secondly, Perez and his ilk behave like rude children. We have lost all sense of reasoned debate or respect for opposing views in this country. It’s all about how many nasty names we can call, how we can ridicule the “other side” instead or arguing with them. Whatever happened to manners? Whatever happened to saying, “Well, we disagree on that, and here’s why.”? We may as well shut down all political speech in this country, and simply run an endless loop of old SNL clips: “Jane, you ignorant slut!” It would be easier and more efficient, since that’s pretty much what the level of discourse in the media is anyway.

    • afrocity Says:

      WCMB,

      I forgot about those SNL clips (shudder).

      I agree that those questions are politicizing the pageant. You would never ask them of someone who was applying for a job. What’s worse is that Hilton admitted that he did not choose her because of her answer.

      We don’t want people to think that they have to conform their beliefs to the accepted model.

      • Janis Says:

        Besides, honestly … isn’t it asking rather a lot of a 12 year old KID to have a totally perfectly articulate and well-thought out answer to ANYTHING?

        21 year olds are children. Cut them a goddamned break. If I got shredded to pieces nationally for every stupid thing I ever said at that age, I would be confetti by now. I cannot believe that anyone could be so vicious to a kid.

        She’s a dumb@$$, fine. Last I heard, that contest isn’t exactly an intellectual one.

      • Janis Says:

        21 year old kid, sorry. 🙂

    • Wild Thing Says:

      I agree with you so much. You have a GREAT blog.
      I don’t ever remember them asking the kind of
      questions they ask now at the USA contest of Miss
      America either.

  5. manbearpig68 Says:

    I don’t think questions like that should be asked in a beauty contest as well, and Perez is just trying to get some airtime.. But this is what happens when liberals come into power. It’s contagious when they have the stage. One says something completely stupid and all the others follow. Liberal Celebrity’s, Extreme Liberal Activists, Liberal politicians, LIBERAL MEDIA!!! When they come into power, all the pent up stupidity comes rolling out!!!

    hey, Afrocity:

    OT, but came late to your post, only read it this morning on TC. I sooo agree with you. I was die hard Dem till rules committee, and now registered Indy. Voted for Palin. There seems to be so much infighting on PUMA sites that I cannot read them all anymore. It is just too disheartening.

    Yours was a breath of fresh air. I have missed you, and am glad to see you return. And thanks for giving your blog address.

    I am from this day forward, a member of the Estrogen Party.

    ((((afrocity)))

    Thanks.

    You mean there are people that watch these pageants with the sound ON?

    (/drops bomb and runs)

    • afrocity Says:

      I stopped watching ages ago. I think the last one I saw was when Vanessa Williams won. I have mixed feelings about pageants but I do not belittle women that participate in them. However, the little girls such as Jon Benet Ramsey do trouble me

  9. I have just recently started my blog and am really enjoying leaving comments on my favorite blogs 😉 Bookmark for sure.

    You may be interested to see that MSNBC has a “Who died and made this gossip blogger official spokesperson of everything?’ article which doesn’t make you folks looks very, er, right about anything. Guess you’ll havce to dial up another right-wing talking point.

    • afrocity Says:

      You said MSNBC, enough said.

      GAZE

      Who cares what Keith Olberman and his toilet seat warmers at MSNBC have to say?

      Guess your life as a liberal shill must suck and is obviously lacking in hopenchange.
      Call the Kool Aid man you need another refill.

    • boldandbald Says:

      What, is MSNBC upset that they aren’t considered the official spokespeople of everything? I wouldn’t be surprised if there are a whole lot of blog sites that have a larger readership than MSNBC’s viewership.

    I found your site on google, great site, keep it up. Will return in the future. Submitted this post to Google News Reader.

    i find that Perez Hilton is just famous because he is a cry baby… the loudest people always get the most attention.
