"The Tea Party Is Homophobic and Racist."

Hollywood actor Alan Cumming said that the Tea Party is “full of such hatred in terms of politics,” in a recent interview. He went on to contradict himself somewhat before getting his train of lies back on track, by admitting that the Tea Party has “some quite sensible notions,” but “that kind of seems to be an umbrella thing that just covers up a lot of real homophobia and racism.”

Regarding same-sex "marriage," he observed: “I just think the Tea Party is out of touch with America, actually. That’s the sad thing for them to have to come to terms with.”

In March, he informed the world that, “I wanted to become a U.S. citizen so that I could vote for  Obama.”

Let's all take in the above for a moment. Now give this British, leftist, bisexual dual-citizen's words the shrift that they deserve. The guy's a poster-child for why Congress should flush the idea of dual citizenship.

I love the rank hubris of celebrities like Cumming. "I'm rich and famous; therefore, people should invite me on T.V. shows and let me pontificate to the unwashed masses about how they should live and what they should think. After all, name recognition and a sizeable bank account translates to expertise on political and cultural matters."

As for the Tea Party being "out of touch with America" on the issue of same-sex "marriage," perhaps Cumming would care to explain how his opinion harmonizes with the verifiable fact that forty-one states prohibit homosexual "marriage?" Or why the federal government gives no official recognition to same-sex "marriage?" Or why the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) passed with overwhelming support in the House and Senate in 1996? Or why "The legalization of same-sex marriage has been driven by court rulings and legislative action, rather than voter referendums"? Or why twenty-eight out of twenty-eight state voter referendums approved legislation defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman?

Don't hold your breath waiting for the likes of Cumming to answer any of these questions. You'll be able to sit under a palm tree and soak up the sun while sipping pina coladas at McMurdo Sound before that happens. Being famous means saying or doing whatever you desire, with little or no accountability. It means never having to answer the tough questions, or demonstrate that you have even an inkling of an idea what's going on outside your precious noggin. It means constantly pronouncing, while saying nothing.

I'm typing this in my new flat in the U.K., with citizenship papers running the bureaucratic gauntlet.


Because I reely want to vote for David Cameron.
