Anita Bryant Gets a Pie in the Face!

Is she even still alive? I love how smug she is right before she gets pied! The praying for the pie thrower was another classic .

Yes, she's still alive and head of the Anita Bryant Ministries International, which continues her life's work of spreading hatred in the name of Jesus.

You would think she'd be out there drawing attention to herself, ...er, I mean the cause that is. Why isn't she running around with Ann Coulter or Glen Beck? Why isn't she the 'gay expert' on Fox News or the 700 Club?

Poor pathetic national joke Anita. I wonder why they haven't trotted her out.

She made an appearance on Good Morning America a few years ago, and it became clear that the old anti-gay warrior hadn't even heard of Matthew Shepard's murder. Maybe she's too clueless even for the Republicans to use as a spokeswoman?

Just goes to show that liberals can't debate issues. They always have to strike out at those they disagree with.

Obviously you can't tell the difference between free speech and physically attacking someone.

I felt the same way about Anita and the pie that I feel about PETA paint bombing fur-wearers. I don't condone it, but I can't help but laugh.

Anita was the Ann Coulter of her day!


re: Anita Bryant Gets a Pie in the Face!

Later in a interview with Ladies Home Journals she says that she regrets her behavior and her views back then and says she has more of a live and let live attitude now.

Doesn't undo all the damage she did but at least it shows that people are capable of change.

That was awful. I am gay and do not condone what those pie throwers did at all, nor do I think it is the least bit funny.

Posted by Tom1071 2008-03-07 14:15:48.0

You must have no sense of humor.

Granted, I would never do that to another human being but I'm glad somebody did. She said some pretty vicious things during that time.


re: Anita Bryant Gets a Pie in the Face!

Just because I don't find this funny doesn't mean I don't have a sense of humor.

Frankly, I've been wishing for more of this kind of thing today. You can't "debate" extremist fools like Anita (and Coulter, and Limbaugh, and on and on...) because they just keep trotting out bumper-sticker phrases and prepackaged sound bites--you end up talking in circles. It takes a courageous act like this to show them up for what they really are--and you can't say the original pie throwers didn't pay for what they did.

Besides, wouldn't we all (except papa and Goth, of course) love to see Coulter with banana creme dripping down her face? Of course, the impact of the pie hitting her would probably knock her empty head clear off her pencil neck...


re: Anita Bryant Gets a Pie in the Face!
Posted by Tom1071 2008-03-07 15:37:06.0

I find it hysterical! And I would be all for seeing something like this happen to Ann Coulter. Ann only does what she does for the celebrity.


re: Anita Bryant Gets a Pie in the Face!
Posted by doodlenyc 2008-03-07 15:43:48.0

Coulter is used to cream dripping from her face.


re: Anita Bryant Gets a Pie in the Face!
Posted by romantico 2008-03-07 16:11:15.0

According to this article one of Anita's son's is gay. He must be real proud of Mom! Her homophobia more or less killed her career and her troubles began when she preached her hate towards gay people. Serves the bitch right!

I know I'm an old fart, and I was a very young fart when this actually happened...

...but do any of you remember the "tone" of the country back then?

There had been a lot of assassinations, and people walking up in the middle of crowds and plugging people with real bullets.

Then, the Pie Squad tactics started. And it wasn't viewed as funny or "light."

It was a non-felony way of saying... we can "get" you if we want to. The pie in Anita Bryant's face was a "humorous" way of saying, "Watch out! If we can get this close to you with a pie, we can get this close to you with a bullet as well. So be afraid... be VERY afraid."

It was a very serious act. And they meant business.

I CAN'T be the only one who remembers this!


re: Anita Bryant Gets a Pie in the Face!
Posted by romantico 2008-03-07 22:17:43.0

I recently saw the movie "The Bible Tells Me So" and they showed a much longer clip where Anita actually broke down sobbing when praying. I assumed it was because of being humiliated in front of the entire world but now I wonder if it because of what you said. Perhaps she feared for her life and thought about what you mentioned Best12Bars.

I'm probably gonna piss some people off here, but I had no idea who she was til i saw this documentary. I went and researched it and thought the pie in the face was a sort of justice. Interesting insight Best12Bars. Thanks for the post!

Best. I remember those days! I was still in the closet then and actually cheered when I saw that on the news! Wasn't that about 74-75?
She was horrible and dangerous, chosen as spokesperson for the Florida Orange Growers and spreading her hate. My brother was in the army then and she was entertaining the troops and spreading her anti gay rhetoric there too. She deserved the pie and probably a lot more for the pain she caused people in the "Name of God".


re: Anita Bryant Gets a Pie in the Face!
Posted by romantico 2008-09-04 21:05:43.0

Florida Orange Juice dropped her as their spokeswoman and she sort of just went away, didn't she? I never hear about her or see her on Fox News or anything.


re: Anita Bryant Gets a Pie in the Face!
Posted by SNAFU 2008-09-04 21:23:46.0

Yes, they did drop her shortly after this. She did disappear and that is a good thing. I think one of the reasons (besides having a Gay son) she has adopted a "Live and let live" philosophy is she realized how much she lost publicly spewing hate.

re: Anita Bryant Gets a Pie in the Face!
Posted by Roscoe 2008-09-05 09:37:36.0

A few years back GOOD MORNING AMERICA did a series of updates on Important Women of the 1970s, and there was a segment on Anita Bryant. It featured the usual stuff, but there was one bit where the interviewer asked if anti-gay rhetoric like hers led to acts of violence, like the Matthew Shepard case.

Anita hadn't heard of the Matthew Shepard case at all. She muttered the usual lies about not advocating violence, and all that, but it was startling how clueless she was on a story that had gotten such astonishing nationwide coverage.

Yep, put the fear of God in them. Personally, I think the times are tame now compared to the 70's. Back then we had the anti-war movement (Vietnam), the women's liberation movement, the Black Panther Party and Puerto Rico's FALN in the mix, amongst others.

One exercised one's freedom of speech back then with the constant threat of getting one's azz whupped for mouthing off in the wrong setting. There was none of this endless chatter from anonymous cyber tigers empowered by information technology.

With regard to her career being sabotaged by her extremist views, certainly her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ took good care of her.

I like when she prays with the pie on her face. And I kinda like when she cries, too. I wish I felt bad about that, but I don't.
