Andrew Zimmern, star of Travel Channel’s “Bizarre Foods,” swallowed a propaganda morsel hook, line and sinker.
A one-sided newspaper hit piece recently implied that Texas Attorney General and Republican candidate for governor Greg Abbott would be against interracial marriage because he refused to answer a hypothetical question. Abbott had defended the state’s gay marriage ban recently and Peggy Fikac, of the San Antonio Express News, asked him if he would have defended a law against interracial marriage.
“Right now, if there was a ban on interracial marriage, that’s already been ruled unconstitutional,” Abbott said. “And all I can do is deal with the issues that are before me … The job of an attorney general is to represent and defend in court the laws of their client, which is the state Legislature, unless and until a court strikes it down.”
propaganda article goes on to show how Abbott defended anti-sex toy laws as well.
In essence, the article accuses Abbott of doing his job and defending the state’s laws. Be that as it may, the inference that he would be against interracial marriage is particularly rich because Abbott is in one with a Hispanic wife.
That didn’t matter to Zimmern. At this point, believing anything from the Wendy Davis campaign is akin to believing OJ didn’t do it. Still, Zimmern was all too eager to take the bait.
This guy is a piece of work. Oh sweet lord, deliver us from the Greg Abotts of the world http://t.co/0V4pxydzYJ

The Twitterverse was unforgiving in its ridicule of the “Bizarre” star.
