BOO!!!! FOX News Yanks Longtime Contributor Off Air After He Comes Out In Support Of Equal Rights!

Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayPolitik

It seems that FOX News has one way of handling anyone who opposes their conservatism…cutting them off! How very close-minded!

When longtime FOX News contributor Bernie Goldberg came on The Kelly File, we bet Shannon Bream, who was filling in for host Megyn Kelly, did not expect him to come to the defense of Jan Brewer's veto of Arizona's Anti-Gay Discrimination bill.

During his all too brief time on the show, Bernie made some pretty excellent points against such blatant discrimination:

Arizona Governor Vetoes Anti-Gay Bill! Hooray!

arizona governor jan brewer vetoes anti gay bill senate bill 1062

Finally! Some good news out of Arizona!!

The state's Republican lawmakers recently pissed off, well, everyone when they passed Senate Bill 1062, a measure which sought to legally condone many types of discrimination under the guise of protecting religious freedom.

Thankfully, mercifully, Governor Jan Brewer has come to her senses — just moments ago she VETOED that horrible, hateful bill instead of signing it into law!

Did Arizona's Republican governor veto it because the angels on her shoulder begged her to do the right thing? Or did she succumb to the pressure of all the pundits, politicians, and private companies who were calling her state out for passing such a preposterously mean-spirited bill in the first place?

We don't know, but she did tweet this:

Ginnifer Goodwin Speaks Out Against Ag Gag Bill

Ginnifer Goodwin

Ginnifer Goodwin has stepped up and is voicing her opposition to the ag gag bill in Tennessee.

She joins the likes of Carrie Underwood in her plea for Tenn. Governor Bill Haslam to veto the bill.

If you haven't heard somehow, in Tennessee there's a bill trying to make it so animal abuse whistleblowers have to turn their evidence over to police within 48 hours of learning of the abuse or risk facing charges themselves.

The whole point of this bill is to make it so farm industry abuse is harder to document because two days isn't enough time to document ongoing, systemic abuse.

Smart move!

In support of a woman's right to choose and Barack Obama's new policy for contraceptive insurance coverage, Missouri's Governor Jay Nixon has vetoed a bill which would have only expanded religious and moral exemptions from insurance policies.

In an explanation that Republican critics call "silly" and "phony," Nixon said:

California Deems New Pet Insurance Bill "Not Necessary"

aarinewenn2959148.jpg

You know what's really not necessary, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger? The $19 billion deficit you put us in! Also, you taking time out to star in The Expendables when we're all in $19 billion in debt! Did your paycheck go towards the deficit at all?! Did it? DID IT?!

Whatever!

On Friday, our stoopid governor terminated a bill the would have required greater disclosure from pet insurers. So many wonderful pet owners take out insurance on their pets to ensure their well being and health. So many insurance companies take advantage of that and don't offer enough explanation of benefits at the time of purchase.

But apparently, this doesn't concern Arnie, as he said in his veto, “As such, this bill is not necessary."

Fail! We're sorely disappointed in you, Governor!
