Of course, with anything involving Morgan, he wouldn’t allow it to be that easy. During a recent comedy show in Nashville, Tennessee (you can guess where this is going), the comedian decided to let his audience know exactly how he felt about homosexuals and President Barack Obama’s “allegiance” to them.
During his tirade, Morgan mocked the President for accepting something as perverted as homosexuality, that being “born this way” is a joke and that he would even stand his own son, if he ever came out to him.
Morgan’s homophobic rant was captured by Kevin Rogers, an audience, who reported the overrated comedian’s efforts to to Truth Wins Out:
- -Mr. Morgan took it upon himself to mention about how he feels all this gay shit was crazy and that women are a gift from God and that “Born this Way” is bullshit, gay is a choice, and the reason he knows this is exactly because “God don’t make no mistakes” (referring to God not making someone gay cause that would be a mistake).
- -He said that there is no way a woman could love and have sexual desire for another woman, that’s just a woman pretending because she hates a fucking man. He took time to visit the bullshit of this bullying stuff and informed us that the gays needed to quit being pussies and not be whining about something as insignificant as bullying.
- -He mentioned that gay was something kids learn from the media and programming, and that bullied kids should just bust some ass and beat those other little fuckers that bully them, not whine about it. He said if his son that was gay he better come home and talk to him like a man and not [he mimicked a gay, high pitched voice] or he would pull out a knife and stab that little N (one word I refuse to use) to death.
- -He mentioned that Barack Obama needed to man up and quit being all down with this just because he has a wife and two daughters. All of this being followed by thunderous cheer and “You go Tracys”. Tracy then said he didn’t fucking care if he pissed off some gays, because if they can take a fucking dick up their ass… they can take a fucking joke.
What I don’t understand is why should we take the musings of a second rate sidekick on a hit TV show’s hateful rhetoric is funny? When did it become “funny” to denigrate a whole community of people and then throwing God in it to make yourself feel vindicated? Not only that but when will it ever be funny to joke about murdering your child, if he were ever to turn out gay.
Also, what does Obama having a wife and two daughters have anything to do with his stance on gay rights? The last I checked LGBT equality has not been utilized in every state. Using the President’s families as means to call him “soft” is shallow and reminiscent of the issues that some black men try to use when opposing the LGBT community. In other words, all Morgan was able to do is show that homophobia doesn’t cease to exist even if you are quasi-famous.
Morgan can attempt to mask his true feelings behind some cheap laughs (after all, who would dispute his rationale in Tennessee) but you can’t joke your way out of this. Luckily for him, Morgan’s show was in Tennessee – somehow it’s doubtful that this routine would fly in New York or on the set of 30 Rock. Neither Morgan or his publicist have yet to discuss the topics covered in his last comedic outing.
