HGTV flips off fans! Pulls brothers’ new show for their pro-life, traditional marriage values

It appears the HGTV network is the latest high-profile company taking a public stand for the progressives’ liberal agenda by punishing those who don’t fall into line.

A new show “Flip it Forward,” scheduled to debut in October has been pulled after liberal lobbying group Right Wing Watch put pressure on the network.

The real estate show, starring twins David and Jason Benham, would “leverage their good-natured sibling rivalry to help families find a fixer-upper and transform it into the dream home they never thought they could afford.”

When HGTV became aware that the brothers are pro-life and pro-traditional marriage, and have spoken out on the issues, they suddenly lost their entertainment value.

Shortly after the announcement of the show last month, Right Wing Watch began preparing “evidence” of “extremism” based largely on the behavior of the twins’ father, Flip Benham, who was a life-long activist for pro-life causes  like Operation Save America and Operation Rescue, according to the group’s research.

One of the brothers, David, has been active in his own right on many conservative issues, taking a strong stand against abortion and gay marriage ( see video below).

HGTV issued a statement and tweeted Wednesday saying it is “not moving forward” with the series, but neglected to say why.

Benhams’ representative said comments would be forthcoming.

In the meantime, Twitter reacted to the controversy swiftly.

Anthony Carrino, host of HGTV’s “Cousins Undercover,” was eager to put his opinion out there:


Pro-life groups are getting the word out:

There were plenty of supporters of HGTV for the decision.

One tweet brought out that good old looney liberal logic:

I think you just proved the other side’s point, dude.
