Video: And now, Star Parker's yearly 'Ooh, look how provocative I am' speech #vvs11

by Jeremy Hooper

Star Parker is one of those outspoken social conservatives who is simply enamored with her own "provocative" voice. You can just tell. Whereas some commentators sound so committed one can't hep but believe that they themselves believe what is coming forth from their passionate mouths, Star always seems like she's in search of that next applause line that'll get the audience on its feet. Or better yet: The line that will have people dropping jaws and turning to their neighbors with full-on "Can you believe she just said that?!" looks all over their faces.

Which is to say: I find Star Parker's whole schtick less than genuine. Every year I listen in to her "shocking" Value Voters speeches, and every year I'm like, "Ooh wow, -- toughie talking tough," before yawning my way over to Hulu for some less targeted performance art.

But I do watch, and so I'm going to make you, too. So now, without further ado: This year's contribution:

Parker: God Will Judge Us For Abortion, Gay Marriage [Right Wing Watch]
