Now even the Miss USA pageant is decided by political correctness

Michelle Malkin lists the errors made by the winner of the pageant.

Excerpt:

She nearly tripped over her gown.

She called birth control a “controlled substance.”

She argued that contraceptives should be covered by health insurers because they are “expensive” — and then said you could get them for “free” from your OB/GYN’s office.

But she is a Muslim, and an Arab-American, and she expressed support for taxpayer-funded birth control, so she won.

More from Michelle:

Does she even comprehend the concept of insurance? The purpose of insurance isn’t to cover every last medical expense. It’s supposed to cover events that are beyond your control. Should auto insurers now cover oil changes and satellite radio installations? I mean, hey, they’re “expensive,” too!

Yes, if something is totally optional, based on individual priorities and choices, but it is “expensive”, then people should not have to pay for it themselves. Someone else should pay, because it’s expensive. Perhaps a working husband, who doesn’t really need the money he earns anyway, should have to pay for it. After all, he needs to help people who freely choose to engage in risky behaviors. Especially if he is pro-life, because then he can pay for abortions that sometimes result from using birth control pills.

UPDATE: In 2007, she won a pole-dancing contest. There she is, your ideal…

UPDATE: Her family is Linked to the terrorist group Hezbollah???

Who should have won?

So who should have won, if politics were set aside?

Miss Oklahoma Morgan Elizabeth Woolard finished first runner-up to winner Rima Fakih of Michigan, and conspiracy theorists are grumbling that her support of SB 1070 may have cost her the crown in a repeat of last year’s Carrie Prejean controversy.

When “The Office” star Cesar Nunez posed Miss Oklahoma a question about where she stood on Arizona’s SB 1070 Sunday night, the crowd erupted in boos over the intrusion of politics, Fox News reported.

“I’m a huge believer in states’ rights. I think that’s what’s so wonderful about America,” Woolard answered of the law which requires state police to stop and question possible undocumented immigrants. “So I think it’s perfectly fine for Arizona to create that law.”

Woolard added that she is against racial profiling.

There’s your winner: Miss Oklahoma.

After last year, you’d think they would have got some judges who could actually judge the merits of the argument instead of whether the conclusion is politically correct. But you’d be wrong. This is just more of the fascists on the secular left sending a clear message to conservatives – agree with us or we will destroy your career. It’s “Expelled” all over again. When the left is in control, there is no diversity of thought.

Secular leftists cannot handle disagreement and debate, so they silence and suppress those who disagree with them. They don’t want to discuss the merits. They just want to feel good and to be perceived as being good, regardless of the effects of the policies that they advocate. Secular leftists are the only ones who care about race, because they are racists. They are the only ones who care about sex, because they are sexist.

By the way, I have no television, so I did not watch this travesty. If I want to admire a woman, I listen to Jennifer Roback Morse lectures, or watch Michele Bachmann speeches, or read Ann Coulter columns.
