GLAAD Demands TV Networks Have 20% of Series Regulars Be LGBT Characters By 2025

It’ll probably happen…

By 2020, GLAAD demanded that 10% of series regulars on TV shows be gay. They won. Hollywood listened and now 10% of all series regulars that you see on TV are gay characters. It happened.

GLAAD wants more. They now want 20% of all series regulars to be gay by 2025. Because when you give liberals an inch, they’ll take a mile – every time.

And you know what? It will probably happen, too. Because we live in the Upside Down. Here’s the deal, via Daily Wire:

In the opening paragraphs of the report, GLAAD President Sarah Kate Ellis states that television plays a crucial role in our culture when it comes to “changing hearts and minds.” She adds that according to a study, “less than one-quarter of Americans have a close friend or family member who is transgender,” which means many Americans “learn about trans people from what they see in television, movies, and news.”

Even if one uses GLAAD’s survey data as a real estimate of the percentage of LGBTQ persons in the United States, the organization’s challenge that “20% of series regular characters on primetime scripted broadcast series” should be LGBTQ by the year 2025 would amount to severe overrepresentation.

Using GLAAD’s data, LGBTQ television characters would outweigh the actual LGBTQ population by 40%. Using Gallup’s data, the difference would be even more stark, with LGBT characters on television outweighing the actual LGBT population by 77.5% by 2025.

Left-wing members of the New Jersey legislature are trying to force a bill into law in Trenton that would force the state’s schools to teach “gay” history.

The new bill approved by the state Assembly on Monday would require middle schools and high schools to teach about the “historical contributions” of gay, queers, lesbians, and people of other proclaimed sexualities.

If New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signs the bill, New Jersey’s schools will have to make the changes to curriculum by the 2020-21 school year.

When the Obamas lived in Washington DC for eight years, sure, they were arguably the most powerful couple in the world. Barack, without question. That comes with the job. The same can be said today about President Trump and First Lady Melania.

But to claim that Barry and Mooch are two of the most powerful people in Hollywood in 2019 seems like a stretch. And yet, it just happened. Maybe one day the Obamas will rule the film industry! Could you imagine?

It would just be one propaganda film after another and the media would eat it up. It’s insane to think that Barack never did a single thing wrong in the left’s eyes. Not a single thing. Not ever.

From Daily Wire:

Former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama are now Hollywood power players, according to the latest top 100 list from The Hollywood Reporter.

Tone-Deaf Portland Runs Tourism Ad After Riot Police Quit En Masse

If you’re looking for chaos, have we got the vacation spot for you!

For months on end, a never-ending series of protests-turned-riots have plagued the city of Portland, Oregon. Night after night the northwestern locale rages, as protesters march in the street, commit arson, clash with cops, and generally relish in their new role as liberal nuisances to the citizens of the city. Things have gotten so bad, in fact, that a large contingent of the city’s riot police coordinated a mass resignation from that portion of the force. That makes the timing of the city’s latest tourism push all the more asinine. Portland ran a pricy full-page Sunday ad in the New York Times promoting tourism after the Portland police riot squad quit Thursday. “Some of what you’ve heard about Portland is true. Some is not. What matters most is that we’re true to ourselves,” Travel Portland wrote in the ad that could have cost up to $250,000. “You’ve heard a lot about us lately. It’s been a while since you heard from us,” it continues. “After a year of encouraging visitors and locals to support small businesses here and from a distance, it’s time to issue an invitation to come back to Portland,” the ad states. “Two sides to the same coin that keeps landing right on its edge. Anything can happen. We like it this way.” The ad also says “new ideas are welcome” in the city, a place where “you can be yourself.” “This is the kind of place where new ideas are welcome — whether they’re creative, cutting-edge or curious at first glance. You can speak up here. You can be yourself here,” it continues. Of course, the taxpayer money used to procure this ad could have been spent on any number of the projects that would have helped secure the city from these anarchistic rabble-rousers.

Canada Bucks International Trend, Won’t Open Border as Pandemic Fades

Airline industry officials are not happy.

In America and around the world, there is much optimism.  The year-plus reign of the COVID scourge is coming to an end as vaccination and natural antibody rates climb ever higher, and businesses from coast to coast begin to ramp up their capacities. But there are still those out there who are unwilling to admit this very palpable and tangible truth, and who are throttling economic recovery in their reticence. Our northern neighbors just so happen to fit that description. Canada said on Monday it would start cautiously lifting border restrictions for fully vaccinated citizens on July 5 but made clear it would be months before U.S. and other foreign travelers could enter the country. From 11:59 p.m. EDT on July 5 (0359 GMT on July 6), those who have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine will no longer have to spend time in quarantine. The move applies to Canadians and permanent residents. “This is the first phase of our precautionary approach … at this time we are not opening up our borders any further,” said Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc. Ottawa first announced the plan on June 9. LeBlanc told reporters that Ottawa was talking to its domestic and international partners “with the goal of allowing fully vaccinated travelers to enter Canada for non-essential reasons in the months to come.” Canada’s unwillingness to capitulate to the reality of the pandemic’s end has adversely affected the airline industry, and has drawn criticism from American lawmakers who believe that more could be done by our allies to the north in the realm of reopening.
