Two More Cave to Pink Mafia: HGTV and Nintendo
The reason militant gays and their cultural Marxist allies have been able to transform the mainstream culture into something that would have appalled any normal person only a few years ago is that no one has the guts to stand up to them. Two more companies deserve a conspicuous place on the dishonor roll, right up there with Mozilla and Barilla: HGTV and Nintendo.
HGTV pulled the plug on a new series entitled Flip It Forward, featuring David and Jason Benham, when it was revealed by a leftist website that the brothers hold traditional Christian views, which are not permissible in the kind of society this is becoming. Via The Examiner:
Following a post by Right Wing Watch which called the Benham brothers Christian extremists, HGTV posted on their Facebook page, “HGTV has decided not to move forward with the Benham Brothers’ series.” …
LifeNews.com first reported that the reason was that the brothers are pro-life. Lifenews.com said “Home and Garden Television has decided to cancel the show after pro-abortion activists outed the brothers as pro-life. The pro-abortion group People for the American Way tagged the brothers as “anti-choice” extremists in an article on their web site and includes comments one of the brothers made about God abhoring abortion.”
But as more news came out, abortion was apparently not the only reason for cancelling the show.
According to Entertainment Weekly, “The twins are the sons of controversial evangelical minister Flip Benham and have a history of preaching against homosexuality, abortion, and divorce. While speaking at a North Carolina rally for a constitutional amendment that would define marriage only between a man and a woman, David Benham said in 2012: ‘We have no-fault divorce; we have pornography and perversion; we have homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation; we have adultery … while the church sits silent and just builds big churches.’”
These views — which no one outside of a brothel or an insane asylum would have considered controversial until recently — were highly unlikely to come up in the context of renovating homes for resale. But the thought police go beyond merely repressing views that conflict with their agenda. Anyone seen as opposition must be erased from the mainstream culture. Quivering in fear of homofascists, HGTV complied.
Erasing thought criminals isn’t enough. Every company must actively promote the homosexual agenda if it is to escape the wrath of the Gay Mafia. This is particularly true where children are concerned, as corrupting the innocent takes high priority. This is why Nintendo was targeted for not providing homosexual love interests in a video play world. Disgustingly but typically, the Japanese company groveled and complied:
Nintendo is apologizing and pledging to be more inclusive after being criticized for not recognizing same-sex relationships in English editions of a life-simulator video game. The publisher said that while it was too late to change the current game, it was committed to building virtual equality into future versions if they’re produced. …
“We are committed to advancing our longtime company values of fun and entertainment for everyone,” Nintendo said on Friday. “We pledge that if we create a next installment in the ‘Tomodachi’ series, we will strive to design a game-play experience from the ground up that is more inclusive, and better represents all players.”
To be “inclusive” of “everyone” means to pander to the tiny but extremely pushy minority who base their self-image on perversion, while excluding everyone who hasn’t been corrupted into abandoning traditional values.
Nintendo had better watch themselves; they are not off the hook yet:
“Nintendo has taken a first step, but if the company’s longtime values are rooted in ‘fun and entertainment for everyone,’ then it needs to catch up to peers like Electronic Arts, which has been inclusive of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) gamers for years,” said GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis in a statement.
The goal is for kids growing up today to regard any society that does not revolve around obsessive indulgence in degeneracy, immorality, and sexual perversion as alien. An objective so unnatural cannot be achieved by natural means. That’s why force is required, as with all things leftist. For now it isn’t usually government force, because that is rarely needed in a culture that lacks the spine to stand up to political correctness. But eventually the coercion will be codified in law.
