Awards Shows: Little More Than Liberal Promotional Ads

I watched a small portion of the Emmy Awards on Sunday because an acquaintance of mine produced it and I wanted to see the tribute to my late friend, John Dye, who played the angel of death on the old "Touched by an Angel" program.

The show was dull and boring and once again a vehicle in which too many pandered to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender wing of the entertainment industry. From the host, Jane Lynch, who paraded her lesbianism as if she was telling the world for the first time, to the sexual innuendo and other badges of cultural liberalism, this was the warm-up act for those headed for perdition, which is as nicely as I can put it here.

Liberals giving awards to liberals is nothing new, but in recent years these shows are little more than promotional ads for sexual perversion and liberal Democrat politics.

Not only do I not watch any of them -- with the noted exception of Sunday night -- neither do I watch the shows that received the awards. Books and conversation are better.
