Miss Oklahoma Morgan Elizabeth Woolard Supports Arizona SB 1070!

Morgan Elizabeth Woolard took the runner-up prize at last night's Miss USA 2010 pageant after answering a politically-loaded question on Arizona's SB 1070. At Fox News, "Miss Oklahoma Named First Runner Up in Miss USA Pageant After Answering Immigration Question":

Miss Oklahoma Morgan Elizabeth Woolard lost the crown to Miss Michigan Rima Fakih.

An unhappy crowd booed Miss USA judge Oscar Nunez when he asked Miss Oklahoma Morgan Elizabeth Woolard a question about Arizona’s immigration law on Sunday night’s pageant.

But could Woolard's answer have cost her the crown?

The "The Office" star asked Woolard if she supported Arizona’s right to enforce the law, which requires police to verify a person's immigration status if there's "reasonable suspicion" that the person is in the country illegally.

Woolard said she supports state's rights, adding that she is against illegal immigration, but is also against racial profiling.

"I'm a huge believer in states' rights. I think that's what's so wonderful about America," Woolard said. "So I think it's perfectly fine for Arizona to create that law."

The night's events mirrored last year's pageant, when gossip blogger Perez Hilton asked Miss California Carrie Prejean if she believed in gay marriage. Prejean said she didn't, and a media firestorm ensued, with many arguing that it cost her the Miss USA title.

And that's what's so interesting: Miss Woolard certainly anticipated the possibility of a politically loaded question, and boy did she get one. And without missing a beat she smacked a home run over the stadium walls. My bet is that a year from now Morgan Elizabeth Woolard will be a household name while disaster winner Rima Fakih will be an afterthought.

Also interesting is how leftists are up in arms over the conservative reaction to Miss USA's Muslim affirmative action beauty contestants, but it's no problem when "The Office" star Oscar Nunez launches a torpedo shot at Miss Oklahoma. Nope. Everybody's down with that, just like last year.

Great post, Donald! :-)

In Sweden many bloggers are these days debating the interruption of Lars Vilks' lecture at Uppsala University a few days ago.

The discussion is about the incompatibility of freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

I agree.

Freedom of speech will never be compatible with freedom of religion.

France has a great policy, which approves the Catholic Church, but harshly discriminates perverted sects as the Pentecostal Church, The Jehovah's Witnesses, and the Scientology Church, for example.

Russia has also a wise and clear democratic policy, which only approves the Orthodox Church.

I have similarly expressed my view, on Swedish blog comments, that Swedish military and police should close down all non-Lutheran Churches and congregations, with the exception of Jewish synagogues.

Many religious organizations are terror networks and oppresses women.

That is not compatible with democracy.

State and religion can never be separated.

Freedom of speech, democracy, and national security, must always have priority over freedom of religion.

Besides, I think all troublemakers should be sent back to their jungle they came from.

Have a wonderful day! :-)
