I've seen a lot of things on TV, but I don't think I've ever seen a TV anchor threaten to punch a guest.
Mckelway: I'm about ready to do a lot more than point my finger at you
Rogers: what would that be?
Mckelway: I, er, I will take you outside and give you a punch across the face because that is not what I said and that is not what I mean.
And then to make matters worse the next day asks for a close-up....so he can announce he has no intention of apologizing.
Only to end up get slapped down by his co-anchor...
Wow. What a great video moment. I think I'll file it under Bad Television and Closet Queens.
Because methinks that meatpuppet doth protest too much. Does he really think people should be ashamed to be gay?
Or does it explain why he spends soooooo much time.
Playing the banjo with the boys...
Seriously though....first there's homophobia
"Mckelway's use of threatened violence is another indication of how far the LGBT community has yet to go to be safe in America. Had this been any other minority in America, Mckelway would never have felt that threatened violence was acceptable.
Then there's self loathing. Normally I'd feel sorry for people who hate themselves. Because they only have one life just like everybody else. And I wouldn't out anyone...even though their actions suggest there is something wrong with being gay.
But when self loathing makes some closeted gay politicians our WORST enemies. And makes the fight against homophobia even more difficult.
They really have to be STOPPED....
