Hello Americans, I’m Todd Starnes. Stand by for news and commentary next.
Reports are beginning to flood in from around the country of pro-lifers losing their jobs because they supported a Texas law that effectively bans abortion.
The most egregious case involves a former Food Network host.
Years ago Josh Denny hosted a show on popular cooking channel called Ginormous Food. He’s also pro-life.
And when the Supreme Court voted to deny an emergency appeal to block the Texas heartbeat law – he took to Twitter to celebrate.
In response – some 10,000 angry abortion rights activists tried to get him fired — from a show that ended three and a half years ago.
“I think everyone has horribly misunderstood me: I’m totally pro-choice,” Denny quipped in one tweet. “As long as the unborn babies are given AR-15’s to defend themselves, I’m fine with you going in there.”
Food Network even went so far as to disown their former host — announcing they had pulled Ginormous Food from all of its platforms.
“Our working relationship with Josh Denny ended years ago and we removed all episodes he hosted at that time,” they wrote in a statement. “His views do not reflect our company values and we regret giving him a platform.
Denny correctly pointed out the network’s hypocrisy by making millions of dollars off of the millions of conservatives who watch the channel.
“If you regret having ever given me a platform, how about you send me a check for the 10s of millions of dollars my show made for your network(s)?” he tweeted. “You knew my views and my style of comedy when you hired me. My views represent the beliefs of half of this country.”
So if you want to work at Food Network you have to support abortion rights. Pro-lifers need not apply.
I don’t know about you, folks — but Food Network’s policy has left a bad taste in my mouth.
