I read recently that Gray’s Anatomy star Isaiah Washington agreed to meet with homosexual activist from Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) and Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) to smooth the waters after calling a homosexual co-star a certain slur that begins with “f.” The actor offered his apologies and expressed a desire to help the activist groups with their agenda, possibly in the form of public service announcements.
Not satisfied with this diplomatic outreach, “ABC has told [Isaiah Washington] he must enter [a residential treatment facility] to examine why he would say such hateful words.” Per the network’s request, Washington has agreed to “undergo a psychological assessment.”
Before I go on, allow me to make a disclaimer lest I be accused of wondering too far from my “psychic iron cage” –that purgatorial refuge where WASP like myself are supposed to be fearfully bound under the ever gazing eye of the politically correct thought-police. I do not in any way condone the use of the word Washington used, nor do I condone the loss of temper that MUST have occurred for him to have uttered it in such company. For him to spew that word in the entertainment industry, his anger must have been of such magnitude that it completely overrode his instinct of self-preservation -the very instinct now begging me not to post this blog entry.
However, with GLSEN and GLAAD, the issue here is not merely the word, but what it betrayed: a disapproval of homosexuality. When one considers the fact that the slur was uttered in October (and only recently became widely known), it is clear that this is not a matter of ABC enforcing it’s own convictions after four months of disciplinary dormancy. The network is obviously kowtowing to radical homosexual activist.
So, in their capitulation, ABC has sent Washington off to “rehabilitation,” which, lets face it, is Cultural Marxism’s fashionable codeword for “reeducation,” which was Political Marxism’s fashionable codeword for “indoctrination.” “Repeat after me Mr. Washington: ‘Intolerance must not be tolerated!' 'Four legs good. Two Legs Better!’ We’ll ask the questions, Mr. Ten!”
How ironic that homosexual activists often demonize their critics through accusations of fascist, totalitarian behavior (the implication of the pink triangle). Hey ABC, GLSEN, and GLAAD; next time you turn a counter-revolutionary over to a “residential treatment facility,” so that upon “rehabilitation” he can star in your “educational” films, ask the the little dissident's shrinks about a term called “psychological projection.”
