Andrew Sullivan Discusses The Gay Mafia With Stephen Colbert: WATCH


Much like a six-lane highway during rush hour, you don’t want to cross the gay mafia — that totally real cabal of highly powerful gays that run the media, politics…the world? The gayluminati. The gaystapo. The cast of A Chorus Line. However you refer to them, they’re more or less real…sorta. At least that’s been the narrative surrounding Mozilla’s former CEO Brandon Eich who¬†resigned from the company after campaign contributions he made in support of Proposition 8 came to light.

Conservative kween Andrew Sullivan went on The Colbert Report last night mostly to serve as the punchline for Colbert’s satirical gay-baiting, calling for everyone to just simma down now with the name-calling and strong-arming. Sullivan has drawn considerable queer ire after coming to the defense of Eich, blasting the so-called “ugly intolerance of parts of the gay movement.” It’s unlikely he’ll engender himself to his detractors with this appearance, but the Colbert Bump is known to do wonders.
