A host of the local Dallas morning show The Broadcast was so overwhelmed by disdain after watching Michael Sam kiss his boyfriend that she stormed off the set during Tuesday's broadcast.
Amy Kushnir employed the tried-and-untrue "it's being pushed in faces" argument regarding homosexuality before bolting away, shutting down the debate with her three other panelists. She was sassy and reminiscent of Aunt Sassy—her diatribe included the phrase, "I don't want to see that!"
When parents do not have a choice about whether or not they want their children to see this, it is wrong...I don't call it a moment of celebration...It's being pushed in faces. I don't want to see that. I don't want to see cake in your face, kissing each other.
The climax is above, but really the entire nine minutes of the segment is worth watching (see below). In addition to Kushnir's shit fit, it includes her well-meaning co-host Courtney Kerr saying that the anti-Sam outcry is "racist toward homosexuals." Suzie Humphreys falls into the Kushnir camp and is frustrated that she's not allowed to express her bigotry without being told, "Hey, lady, you're a bigot." She reasons that gay acceptance "all has to do with social media, the whole thing."
Good thinkin' all around!
