WFAN’s Craig Carton should stick to sports and leave the social issues like gay rights to the adults
Every once in a while a caller calls into WFAN’s morning show Boomer and Carton to voice an opinion on Gays in sports. With the recent news that NBA has the first openly Gays player in team sports on the Brooklyn Nets in Jason Collins and college football player and possible NFL draft pick Michael Sam announced he’s Gay, it’s been a hot topic.
Caller: How do you think the other guys in the locker room feel about a Gay player looking at him naked?
At this point Craig Carton, the comic relief side of Boomer and Carton proceeds to berate the caller for being closed mind, intolerant, a bad person, not enlightened, backward thinking, on the wrong side of history and a homophobe among other things. So in Carton’s mind a difference of opinion is not allowed. Either caller’s need to tow the progressive line or face Carton’s wrath as being not as good a person as he is.
Carton is nothing new. He’s a typical Liberal with a sense that only other Liberals like him are the truly compassionate and all-knowing. He likes to ridicule people of faith as haters because they believe in a particular religious book.
But, I thought Boomer and Carton is sports talk show? Who is it other than the Liberal sports media that is pushing for a Gay player to come onto the scene? Why? So they can live vicariously through a media created Jackie Robinson-like moment breaking the Gay barrier? Does how a player have sex mean more than hitting a baseball or shooting a basket? It shouldn’t, and that’s the point.
But, what Carton doesn’t understand in his feeble brain is that others in this country are allowed to feel differently than him with his sanctimonious mockery or belittling. And other players are allowed to feel what they feel without Carton being the sole arbiter of how anyone should feel.
Stick to sports, Craig! You’re out of your depth!
