Anderson Cooper’s Vulgar ‘Tea-Bagging’ Joke Epitomizes Media’s Hatred of Conservatives

Labeled as powerful homosexual by gay magazine OUT, Cooper owes apology to conservatives nationwide; WARNING: GRAPHIC SUBJECT MATTER

anderson_cooper-tea-bagging-joke.jpgCNN’s Anderson Cooper yesterday had a sex act called “tea-bagging” on his mind — rather than the Boston Tea Party that ignited America’s drive for independence — as he snidely poked fun at conservative Americans attending symbolic “tea party” rallies for responsible government. Cooper, who uses his CNN perch to promote the homosexual agenda, ranks high year after year on OUT Magazine’s “Power 50″ of the “most powerful gay men and women in America” — even as he remains mum on his alleged homosexuality. Watch the YouTube video with Cooper’s sick joke below. Write CNN HERE and Anderson Cooper HERE.

Folks, Anderson Cooper embarrassed himself and his profession Wednesday with his vulgar “tea bagging” joke in an interview with David Gergen on CNN. Gergen was making the point that Republicans “still haven’t found their voice” as an opposition party, to which Cooper replied: “It’s hard to talk when you’re tea-bagging” — a reference to an oral sex act. (See the Urban Dictionary definition of “tea-bagging” with it’s “gay” example; and see the excellent MRC Newsbusters coverage of Cooper’s perverted quip HERE.) There’s more commentary following the YouTube:

Cooper — ranked Number 3 on this year’s OUT Magazine list of most powerful homosexuals — is a pro-homosexuality activist who pretends to be an objective reporter, but sometimes the contempt he holds for conservatives gets the best of him, as it did yesterday. Let’s be honest: this is only the crudest example of Cooper’s bias against the Right — remember the sophomoric stunt he pulled at a CNN-sponsored GOP presidential debate by enlisting a homosexual retired general (conveniently placed in the audience) to ask pointed questions critical of “Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell”? But it’s not just Cooper: I’d bet you could find college J-school students who could have produced more professional coverage of the nationwide conservative “tea parties” than what CNN did yesterday. (One CNN “reporter” chose to fixate on the lack of African-Americans at a Tea Party rally.)

And we would be remiss if we failed to note that as bad as CNN is, it could never approach the liberal bias and sheer anti-conservative animus of MSNBC, whose openly lesbian talker, Rachel Maddow, and others have been using the crude “tea-bagger” references all week to slam the decent Americans attending conservative “tea party” events. See the Newsbusters piece on MSBNC’s snotty “tea-bagging” coverage HERE.

Cooper travels to hot spots all over the world for CNN, but he can’t seem to muster up the guts to discuss his potential conflict of interest on the matter of homosexuality. At least Maddow is open with her lesbianism, even as she shills — with the subtlety of a sledgehammer — for “gay” rights causes such as homosexuals in the military. (And as fingernails-on-a-chalkboard irritating as the smarty-pants Maddow is with her nonstop conservative-bashing, she still can’t match the Obnoxiousness Factor of her MSNBC colleague Keith Olbermann — although the occasional Maddow-Olbermann interview should be banned by the Geneva Convention against Torture.)

But back to Cooper. He may remain silent on whether he is a homosexual — memo to Anderson: most men can answer that question pretty easily — but his ugly bias and bitterness toward conservatives is out of the closet. If he has any class, he’ll apologize to CNN’s world audience — and especially all those good people who attended the “tea party” rallies — for his perverted on-air remark denigrating their cause.

TAKE ACTION:  Write CNN News at www.cnn.com/feedback/forms/form5.html?92 and/or Anderson Cooper at http://www.cnn.com/feedback/forms/form5.html?10 to comment on their egregious lack of professionalism in denigrating conservative “tea parties” with his vulgar “tea-bagging” joke.
