Homophobic Martyr Amy Kushnir Tells Fox News Gay Kisses Are “Inappropriate,” But Male Strippers Are Fine

amy-kushnir-homophobicAmy 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.

    “”Since voicing her opinion on air, she has reportedly received “death threats,” “rape threats,” and “petitions to have me fired” on social media.””

    This is the same B.S. that NOM and other bigots tried to pull, until several of them were questioned on the supposed threats and couldn’t produce any proof.

    My favorite is her lying about “Rape Threats” Yes, because everybody knows that when gay men are upset, the first thing they want to do is run out and rape women. (Eye roll).
    But they need to try to paint her as a victim, so her conservative advisors have not doubt come up with this to try to shock people. Be interesting when somebody asks the Dallas police if any of these “Threats” have been reported and they say “No”.

    She makes Jesus vomit.

    Just another privileged white woman out of touch and living in her pure bubble. Welcome to the world sweety.

  • flexdoc

    Maybe she should be looking for a job in Saudi Arabia, Uganda or Iran.

  • Thomathy

    How old is she? I find it absolutely fascinating that there’s anyone born in the last 30-40 years who can have been raised within the kind of bubble she must have been.

    Well, if she’s the spokesperson for bigots, I’ll just back away slowly while they all suffocate in that bubble of theirs.

  • Dawson

    I didn’t see the video where she walked off the set but I get the impression that others were defending the kiss so maybe we are looking at this from the wrong lens. If people are “evolving” especially in Texas maybe this should be OUR focus. Making her seem out of the loop ESPECIALLY in Texas rather than her histronics seems more appropriate.

  • Taurox

    I am willing to bet a lot of money that a few of those strippers were Gay.

  • Cam


    Two of them did not like the kiss and one said that it was “Rac-ist” of them to say gays shouldn’t kiss.
    So two were against, and the one defending the kiss wasn’t the best defense, but still enough to infuriate this woman.
    Just another Carrie Prejean, I’m sure there is some low grade porn in this woman’s background.

    I feel so sorry for her children having to go out into a world where they are going to be ill prepared for the reality and existence of GAY PEOPLE! She can rate and carry on all she likes but gay couples kissing is going to become more and more common. So she needs to sit down with her children now and explain that gay people, just like straight people, sometimes hold hands and kiss and they do it because, just like straight people, they love each other. I’m sure the concept of love isn’t that difficult for her children to understand.

  • gaym50ish

    It probably never occurred to her that the shirtless male strippers she was all over are probably gay.

    Any other kind of a kiss would never be considered “oversexualized.” In fact, even in the 1950s, when married sitcom stars had to be depicted sleeping in twin beds, a kiss was just a kiss.

    A kiss never became “sex” until two guys did it.

    I had no clue the utter hell and torture this woman…no… not woman…SAINT has been thru. We must hunt down these awful demons who, apparently, hold down these good christian people and force them to watch gays do gay things on cable tv. These satanists who tie up their babies…their BABIES…and hold open those sweet innocent eyes so that they must witness the horror of 2 men kissing. Cause we all know Christians didn’t know MS was gay before hand or know how to use the remote for cable. We should have a walk-a-thon or bake sale or something to raise money for the PTS she must be experiencing.

    Once she sit on my JACK, she`ll always go for HOMOS.

  • dbmcvey

    I’ve gotten death threats on the internet and I’m not even on a show.

  • michael mellor

    She comes across as resentful of male homosexuality due to the fact that it suggests a level of male superiority over women. It’s as if the gender war is being played out at a new angle.

  • toberlin

    Even if she would be the Blessed Virgin Mary,uptight girls don’t keep me away from having fun.

  • tjr101

    Conservative women are some of the biggest hypocrites there is.

    She had better check herself before she wreaks herself, oh too late!

    Quote from link above, go read the full post………..
    It appears that anti-gay Dallas television host Amy Kushnir, who is so terribly outraged by Michael Sam’s kiss, is the daughter of legendarily disgraced scamvangelist Rev. Robert Tilton, whose multi-million dollar grifting empire first crumbled in the early 90s following an exposé by ABC News.

    ………….. “That’s an awful lot of possible coincidences, but if I’ve connected the dots properly, it’s certainly understandable that Amy Kushnir wouldn’t want the world to know about her infamous father. But it’s rather illuminating if she indeed grew up in lavish mansions that were paid for by the then-estimated $80M conned annually out of old ladies by Rev. Robert Tilton, who is still in the scamvangelism game and was raking in $24M a year as recently as a few years ago.”

  • startenout

    So you’re telling me she’s unprofessional, uneducated and a hypocrite about what is “appropriate” for us to show our children? I am shocked.

  • Tookietookie123

    If your opinion doesn’t match another person’s opinion then they don’t want to hear it had always been a thing since the dawn of humanity. The more relatively recent one I can think of is racism, it’s an opinion, but by the large constituent of Americans, we don’t want to hear it on tv, but the way Amy is defending homophobia it makes me wonder if she would support racism since she worded it exactly the same. She basically wants to protect everyone’s opinion, even if it’s the KKK? Or Westboro Baptist Church? Not all opinions are good and a lot don’t flow with our modern society. Don’t be so naive Amy.
