It’s okay to be a GLEEK. But please don’t be a GLEEDIOT.
CORY MONTEITH : 1982 – 2013
In the past, there have already been other popular television shows focusing upon the lives and loves of young teenage characters as they grow up, develop, evolve and mature into young adulthood.
BEVERLY HILLS 90210. DAWSON’S CREEK. ONE TREE HILL. THE O.C. GOSSIP GIRL. THAT 70S SHOW. SAVED BY THE BELL.
Fortunately, none of these beloved TV series ever tragically suffered the abrupt and unexpected death of a major cast member in connection to drugs or alcohol DURING their lengthy historical broadcast runs.
( Shannen Doherty of 90210 came close but she’s still very much alive until today. Moreover, a few other stars also experienced their own worsening substance abuse problems but only did so many years AFTER the cancellation of their programs. A very recent example was the late Lisa Robin Kelly from That 70s Show. )
Conceivably, thanks in large measure to the heartfelt prayers of their devoted fans, most handsome teen heartthrobs managed to survive their initial showbiz successes and healthily moved onward to more important things within their respective individual lives.
( PROVIDED that they mainly keep quiet and stay in the closet about any conservative beliefs or right-of-center political sympathies they may secretly have, especially in the dangerous presence of The Intoleratti – Hollywood’s reigning leftist cultural elites. )
Jason Priestley. Luke Perry. James Van Der Beek. Joshua Jackson. Chad Michael Murray. James Lafferty. Benjamin McKenzie. Adam Brody. Chace Crawford. Ed Westwick. Topher Grace. Ashton Kutcher. Mark-Paul Gosselaar. Mario Lopez.
All of them LUCKY SHOWBIZ SURVIVORS ( at least by the end of their respective shows and until the present time so far ).
Therefore, why was poor Cory Monteith so incredibly UNLUCKY?
Surely, a hot young actor ( like him ) in a CURRENTLY ONGOING hit television series, who has dabbled in alcohol or drugs, would possess enough common sense to keep things from getting out of control, particularly when his yet ascending stardom remains still very much at stake.
Come to think of it, what does make GLEE so different from the rest of them??
The ANSWER is here:
“WHY IS ‘GLEE’ SO MEAN?’ A show about a group of outcast kids who gain self-esteem by coming together and excelling in their high school glee club should have been downright inspirational. BUT WHAT MAKES ‘GLEE’ SO INSUFFERABLE IS ITS HYPOCRITICAL PRETENSE OF BEING ABOUT TOLERANCE WHEN, IN FACT, IT’S REALLY ABOUT STIGMATIZING AND RIDICULING THOSE WITH WHOM CREATOR/ PRODUCER RYAN MURPHY APPARENTLY DISAGREES.
A real show about Tolerance would stress Kindness and Growing Understanding between people of differing perspectives. The humor would be more gentle, the laughs more universal and less degrading. It wouldn’t condone, much less practice, nastiness toward anyone. BUT NASTINESS, DIVISION AND UGLY STEREOTYPING IS EXACTLY WHAT ‘GLEE’ TRADES IN.
The irony is that IF THE SHOW WERE KINDER AND GENTLER TOWARD THOSE MURPHY VIEWS AS INTOLERANT ( AND APPARENTLY DESERVING OF FIERCE RIDICULE ), HE ACTUALLY MIGHT SOFTEN THEIR HEARTS toward those he sees them as being intolerant of. As it is, HIS APPROACH IS TOTALLY COUNTERPRODUCTIVE TOWARD ANY SORT OF ACTUAL BRIDGE BUILDING.
What should be a feel-good show about people coming together to support, help and love each other instead leaves A BITTER TASTE.”
( “GLEE IS NOT ABOUT TOLERANCE” by John W. Kennedy, http://blogbeliefnet.com )
A BITTER TASTE in the past. A DEAD CORPSE in the present.
The Hidden UGLEENESS of GLEE.
Accomplished film and television screenwriter Lionel Chetwynd vividly recalled an unfortunate encounter with a gay HBO television executive:
“HE DECLINED TO HIRE ME BECAUSE ACCORDING TO HIM, CONSERVATIVES LIKE MYSELF CANNOT WRITE CARING CHARACTERS. THIS DISTRESSED ME VERY MUCH BECAUSE HE WAS A GAY MAN. AND I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT HE AS A GAY INDIVIDUAL MIGHT HAVE ENOUGH SENSITIVITY TO AVOID THAT KIND OF PREJUDICED STEREOTYPING.”
What’s ultimately most IRONIC is this:
GLEE creator Ryan Murphy and his homo-friendly TV writers also cannot write caring characters either, whether gay or straight, to save their own hypocritical lives.
At the very least, they couldn’t write caring characters on their show even to save Cory Monteith’s life.
Our deepest and most sincere condolences to all of Cory Monteith’s grieving fans. He will be missed.
But THE TRUTH must still be told. Sorry if this upsets certain people.
( Please don’t sabotage this site. It would ultimately be the moral equivalent of World War II Nazis burning the diary of Anne Frank. )
GLEEKS may take solace in the fact that Cory Monteith’s once bright acting career was not maliciously destroyed and his artistic spirit was never mercilessly crushed by the industry’s Hypocritical Cultural Elites for the sake of Political Correctness and due to the Self-Righteous Intolerance of the Hollywood Left.
Ironically speaking, drugs and drinking ultimately spared him from a worse fate : the living showbiz death known as THE NEW BLACKLIST.
“I was AN ACTRESS WORKING ON THE SOAP OPERA ‘ONE LIFE TO LIVE’. I played the recurring role of CARLOTTA VEGA for the last 14 YEARS.
‘One Life To Live’ was taping a scene in which MY CHARACTER MISTAKENLY BELIEVES THAT HER SON IS GAY. As originally written, CARLOTTA’S REACTION WAS HIGHLY UNREALISTIC. She was portrayed as TOO IMMEDIATELY ACCEPTING and INEXPLICABLY AMUSED by this possibility. I POLITELY OBJECTED, EXPLAINING THAT A DEEPLY RELIGIOUS LATINA MOTHER WOULD BE A LOT MORE GENUINELY CONCERNED AND WORRIED IN SUCH A REAL LIFE SCENARIO.
Now please understand my situation. I DIDN’T OBJECT TO BEING IN A GAY STORYLINE. I MERELY OBJECTED REGARDING THE TRUTH OF WHAT MY ROLE IS, HOW CARLOTTA VEGA WOULD LIVE, BREATHE AND ACT IN THAT STORYLINE. And this goes against everything I am, my belief system, and what I know my devout character’s belief system is aligned to. THE SIMPLISTIC GAY-FRIENDLY DIALOGUE WAS INCONSISTENT WITH THE ROLE I HELPED TO CREATE DURING THE LAST 14 YEARS BY DRAWING UPON MY OWN FAITH AS A CHRISTIAN ACTRESS.
AS A COMPROMISE SITUATION, I NAIVELY OFFERED TO HELP REWRITE THE SCENE TO MORE REALISTICALLY PORTRAY CARLOTTA’S REACTION and gave my suggestions to the show’s executives.
What happened after that? THEY FIRED ME AND I WAS REPLACED.
That was MY REWARD FOR 14 YEARS OF LOYAL SERVICE AND DEDICATED HARD WORK on the set of ‘ONE LIFE TO LIVE’.”

THE HIDEOUS UGLINESS OF THE HOLLYWOOD GAYSTAPO.
NEW BLACKLISTING. REVERSE BLACKLISTING. WHITELISTING. GRAYLISTING. PASSIONING. THE HOLLYWOOD LEFT’S P.C. APPROVED VERSIONS OF BULLYING.
IF ONE WANTS TO PREACH IN FAVOR OF TOLERANCE, EQUALITY, LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE TO OTHERS, YOU MUST OPENLY PRACTISE SAID VIRTUES IN YOUR OWN PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL LIVES FIRST.
In this matter, GLEE has failed. Even GOD has noticed this by now.
