Nixon Sees Gays on TV

When the president flipped through the channels after a ball game he wanted to watch was rained out, he came across an episode of CBS’s All in the Family in which an old buddy of Archie’s came out of the closet. “The show was a total glorification of homosex…. Is this common on TV?—destruction of civilization to build homos. Made the homos the most attractive type.” He added a fillip on classical civilization: “You know what happened to the Greeks! Homosexuality destroyed them.” Norman Lear on enemy list after watching that.
