John Oliver: Gaywatch

June 14, 2013

Daily Show guest host John Oliver tonight took on the social progress (or lack thereof) towards gay marriage rights in the United States and around the world. Between mocking Pat Robertson’s odd phrasing and the rumors of a “gay lobby” at the Vatican, Oliver saved his sharpest barbs for the violent anti-gay protestors taking to the streets in France, marching in gaudy pink grab, leading Oliver to ask, “How is it that France’s anti-gay protests look so much gayer than our pro-gay protests?”

“Listen, I don’t want to be in the position of giving tips to bigoted, anti-gay forces, but just in terms of pure message discipline, you might want to go with something that doesn’t so much scream audition piece for Cirque du Soleil.”
