Amy Kushnir, the bigoted Texas morning show host who stormed off set earlier this week because she didn’t win an argument about Michael Sam’s “offensive” celebratory same-sex kiss, was welcomed as a champion voice for the conservative Christian right on Fox News last night.
Kushnir didn’t do any screaming or shouting during her Fox interview because, of course, she was in the company of all like-minded people who agreed with her. On Wednesday, if you recall, she shouted on the set of The Broadcast that Michael Sam’s kiss was “being thrown in her face” and how “wrong” it was.
In her interview with Fox last night, Kushnir claimed that the “Michael Sam incident” was “not appropriate” and “over the top.” “ESPN used it as an opportunity to put out shocking video,” she said. She went on to describe how ESPN is a “family network” for sports, and that her children who play sports should not be forced to watch gay things. Since voicing her opinion on air, she has reportedly received “death threats,” “rape threats,” and “petitions to have me fired” on social media.
But was the Michael Sam kiss really all that shocking? Does Amy Kushnir think it’s as appropriate as, say, that time back in February when she fondled male strippers and giggled like a schoolgirl while touching their bodies on an episode of The Broadcast?
Video of the “incident” is starting to make the rounds now that Kushnir has emerged as a champion of “traditional values” — we first reported the discovery yesterday. On Wednesday, she spoke of the frustration she feels when children are subjected to oversexualized things like same-sex kisses:
“When parents do not have a choice as to whether or not they want their children to see [men kissing], that’s wrong! I don’t call it a moment of celebration… It’s being pushed in faces!”
Below, you can watch the self-described “Christian,” “Wife,” and “Proud Mother” act like a 12-year-old girl and literally jump on top of three shirtless male strippers. Things like this are totally cool for children to be watching — so much more wholesome than that disgusting gay shit ESPN shows.
