Then there's Sarah Silverman, another comedian who thrives on shocking and insulting comments. Silverman went on YouTube to lecture the country: "Dear America, When you tell gay Americans that you can't serve their country openly or marry the person that they love, you're telling that to kids, too. So don't be f---ing shocked, wondering where all these bullies are coming from who are torturing young kids and driving them to kill themselves because they're different. They learned it from watching you."
Once again, putting aside the downright stupid accusation that opposing gay marriage is a bullying-and-suicide platform, is Silverman a role model against bullying? At almost the same time her accusatory video piled up more than 200,000 views, Silverman was vomiting this sex "joke" on Twitter: "9/11 widows give the best (sex act)." Can you say cognitive dissonance? She's now lecturing on bullying.
The left has no shame. None. On her satellite radio show, Rosie O'Donnell joined in the same party-line smear: "Well, if the society sanctions bigotry against gay people, how can you expect the children of this society not to ... internalize that? Whether it's Don't Ask, Don't Tell; whether it's gay marriage; (it's) being told by your country that you are not as valuable as your neighbor who's straight." O'Donnell denouncing bullying is akin to Michael Vick denouncing dog fighting.
Perhaps the least famous but most ridiculous scold on this issue is Hollywood gossip Perez Hilton, who CNN also sought out for advice and hailed his anti-suicide activism. Hilton's most famous for being a judge in the Miss USA contest and demanding during the final question-and-answer period that Miss California Carrie Prejean endorse gay marriage. When she refused, he did a round of interviews calling her a "dumb (B-word)." Then on a picture of her holding a microphone, he drew in a penis on his website. He's done that and worse sexual smears to celebrity pictures for years.
Now he's featured on CNN in an ongoing parade of guests denouncing conservatives for bullying.
