Dallas Morning TV Host Walks Off Set In Protest Of Michael Sam Kiss

The Broadcast's Amy Kushnir might be confused for Elisabeth Hasselbeck after a stunt she pulled on air Wednesday morning. The resistance she faced from the show's co-hosts (including LGBT ally Courtney Kerr) once her ugly anti-gay bigotry was laid on the set's table was too much for the small-minded Kushnir. Looks like the only articulate response she could form to confront reason and humanity was to storm off the set.

Prior to walking off stage, Kushnir said:

"When parents do not have a choice about whether or not they want their children to see this, it is wrong...I don't call it a moment of celebration...It's being pushed in faces. I don't want to see that. I don't want to see cake in your face, kissing each other."

So, TV subject matter that includes murder, rape, adult language, divorce, infidelity and so on is okay with Kusnir for kids' consumption, but a display of love between a gay monogamous couple is OMG EWWW WRONG THINK ABOUT THE CHILDREN I DON'T WANT TO SEE THAT! Mother of the Year award, anyone? 

Watch as the Fox News protégé brings the drama to Dallas morning TV:

 

UPDATE:  Amy Kushnir will address controversy in national interview with...you guessed it.

Canada has same-sex marriage, universal healthcare, a lower crime rate, decent wages, and cleaner cities. What faults does Canada have? Not being snarky here. Genuinely curious.

At the end of the clip, the co-host states, "I'd like to see something fun, motivating, inspiring and uplifting." Watching the sheer joy and elation of having your hard work and dedication pay off with a draft pick - and sharing that with the one you love - qualifies to me.

We do not want to necessarily see this from heterosexuals either and it is forced upon us every day on TV and in the street.

Luckily we dont want to see her on tv either. So it works out perfectly. I hope she resigns and is never seen again.

We have been stuck watching straight couples do this over and over again... Wedding receptions! Celebrating your wedding day which depending where we live, most still can't do the same. Shoving cake into each others face and kissing... Like i said, for years we've been suffering through it, now its your turn.

Well maybe we in the gay community don't really want to see straights kiss in public either..... affection has its place. Get over it hunny. It's in the norm now
