White House praises Jason Collins for coming out
Washington Examiner ^ | 4/29/13 | Brian Hughes

Posted on 04/29/2013 12:28:03 PM PDT by Nachum

The White House applauded National Basketball Association player Jason Collins, who on Monday became the first active male player in a major American sport to announce he was gay. “We view that as another example of the progress that has been made and the evolution that has been taking place,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said, praising the "courage" of the National Basketball Association veteran.

Hey, how else could a player who averaged 0.9 points game this season and whose career is almost certainly over get props from the White House? This should guarantee him an analyst job covering gay sports issues with ESPN. :)

How can they call it courage in this day and age? It is a badge of honor for the left and the gay agenda.

Now if the president "comes out", we will all be able to be proud of America for the first time in our adult lives.

It's a wacky world out there.

Courage is going on the battlefield and dying for your country..courage is fighting a horrendous disease like cancer..putting your pecker in another dude’s ass and calling it “love” is NOT courage

And Obama’s wife made a hospital visit to a guy tackled at the Boston bombing who she knew was Osama Bin Laden’s son Hamzi, shortly after somebody singlehandedly removed his classification of “known terrorist”. And the Hawaii state registrar effectively confirmed that Obama’s Hawaii BC is non-valid (revealing that the whole stinkin’ system hid the truth about him just like he hid the truth about Bin Laden’s son smiling wide for the camera after he planned the killing of innocent Americans and gets to waltz scott-free because Obama is his ally....

Aside from all that, we could talk about something really important - like the kind of nightee my husband prefers me to wear.... And I’m sure Obama would praise me for revealing the sexual preferences within our household too....

This world is insane.

I understand that this is not new, and that Kennedy and Clinton did the same thing, but I just can't condone using the prestige of the presidential office to hit on potential love interests.

It's not seemly.

Reggie Love, for one, must be livid.

This is such a joke...a total set up. We have this big month-long buildup by the left about athletes coming out. Then the big new breaks that an unknown bench player comes out just before retirement. I’ve never heard this guy’s name. Now, he has years of new income and special honors coming his way.

Oh, and did I mention that there’s a hole in our south-facing radar and it’s believed that both North Korea and Iran have put super-EMP’s in orbit so they can exploit that hole in our defenses and put this country back to the 4th century?

Hate to bore everybody; I guess I’ll just shut up. We just don’t have time to address such puny and irrelevant issues.

Fast and Furious? The drug cartels and their Islamist terrorist allies on our southern border being armed by our own (illegal) government? Nah, who cares about that...

Benghazi? Our heroes left on a rooftop painting targets for a drone that our sleeping foreign enemy combatant-in-chief wouldn’t allow to come and rescue him? Way too conspiratorial to merit a second look....

Absolutely!

Bring back the closet!

Like dennis Miller says: “Lord, just give me one day WITHOUT gays!”

They seem to predominate every news cycle and to insert themselves (pun intended) into our daily consciousness.

YUCK!

They are obsessed with their private sexual desires.

The media is brainwashing others that they must conform to being gay friendly/gay acceptance while the gay checks the normal guys out in the locker rooms, okay. This reminds me of the gays forcing themselves into scouting. The guy can do whatever he wants. He should have stayed private about his sexual desires. I look at him as gay now, nothing more as a agenda driven person. I don't want my male neighbors to boost about their sexual desires either.
