Watch: Ellen DeGeneres Hates America?


The patriarch of the Sutton family would probably feel comfortable at a teabagger rally.

  1. Is he confusing Ellen with Rosie? Sounds like some of the Fox News demonizing crap they would spew at Rosie.

  2. Odd. I guess some folks think gay = U.S. hater, but where they come up with that crap is a mystery. She's never said anything that could even be vaguely misconstrued as being against the U.S.

  3. She's not even a political figure. He said that, and audience members applauded, solely because she's gay.

  4. Mike = total self-potato.

    Ellen = funny & classy.

  7. It could be a simple mistake. The audience would have clapped because of the applause sign. I cringed when I heard the dad make the statement, but his idea of her "not liking our country very well" could had been due to gays not having equal rights. I don't like the country very well because of this reason ... but I think things will eventually change.

  8. Sounds like the Tea-Bagger crap to me. Gay, Supported Obama, etc must be a "damned, socialist, liberal". Anyone who's not just "Gods, Guts, and Guns" is a U.S. Hating Terrorist.

  9. I can't see Ellen hating anyone. She does not strike me as the type.

  10. When you heard the accent was there any doubt where he was going to go?

    To people like him, if she's homasekshul, then she MUST hate Amurka.

    Too bad the audience, I'm sure out of politeness, didn't sit silently without applauding.

  11. Some of the applause was enthusiastic. I'm sure there were more "Palin people" present.

  12. I wouldn't read too much into the applause, since the audience is instructed to clap enthusiastically after each answer.

  13. This is outrageous! Family Freud is still on t.v.??!!

  14. Errr... that should be "Family Feud" (but could I have made a more literal Freudian slip?)

  15. The Dad must be a FOX NEWS viewer.

    I miss Richard Dawson.

  16. I take this as a reminder to us of the hatred that exists towards us that is so close to the surface but often hidden. The rest of the family was so nice and encouraging but Dad? Not so much. No matter how me meant it, just rude...and yet he thinks its ok to say such things.

  17. That's what this country has come to: people feel like they can spew their ill-reasoned, unsubstantiated opinions wherever they want and think it's "right to free speech."

    Is it really?

  19. i live in az, and the tea party movement promotes anti gay rhetoric identifying anything lgbt as un-american, anti-god and wrong.

    there is so much hate, as i drive around in phoenix with equality for all bumper stickers, i get the finger, and get almost run off the road by the 4x4 gas guzzling pickup trucks with mccain palin stickers & "you lied" obama stickers.

    these people need to be put in their place they aren't right. they claim the constitution gives them the right to act uncivilized, spreading lies & hate. claiming their founding fathers are infallible and their bible the word.

    we need to be more vocal & more aggressive with our cause!

  20. i wonder if he knows that ellen degeneres has raised over 500 million dollars in disaster relief for this country she hates so much.
    pretty sad statement. i wonder what he's done for his country...

  21. I like how the presenter changed it to "the country" so it sounds like the meant the countryside and not the US. Ellen is a classy lass and handled it lovely.

  22. If you pay close attention, you'll notice the rest of his family kind of just stands there all "WTF, DAD?" before remembering they're supposed to clap no matter how retarded the answer. There's definitely a beat or two before they clap.

  23. outrageous.

    why hasn't the mainstream media gone to this asshole's door and asked him exactly what he meant? i'm guessing they're from a small town or the 'burbs, so what's their local paper? someone should find out and contact the editor.

  25. not sure what the dad was trying to say with his answer, but the knee-jerk comments here about the tea party movement/fox news/sarah palin speak volumes.
