Turns out Cindy Brady hates Muslims
The Victoria Jackson of The Brady Bunch
I'm a bit shocked about Susan Olsen, TV's Cindy Brady. She used to grow marijuana, and she was fired from her radio show, "Two Chicks Talkin' [sic] Politics" after a "homophibic rant" against gay actor Leon Acord-Whiting (who attacked her first).
It turns out that Olsen was a Trump supporter, weirdly enough. She thinks Obama is a "Marxist", she hates Muslims and claims to have "studied Islam for a few years."
Yeah? Where did she study Islam? I think she's studied it the way Tom Cruise "studied" the history of psychology.
Susan worked with Robert Reed for years. She said she was aware that he was gay early on.
It all started with Al Franken's Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot. Yes, Limbaugh was terribly overweight, and a drug addict. Should we attack him for these two medical conditions? Now some "artist" has been putting up "sculptures" of naked Donald Trump, "body shaming" a 70-year-old man and thinking it was a political statement.
The Clinton campaign released photos of Bernie Sanders sunbathing. They thought it would be a blow to his campaign, but all they did was reveal he was in pretty good shape. Let's see Hillary Clinton out there.
But, you see, this is what it has led to--Cindy Brady attacking someone for an irrelevant personal attribute.
It is weird that she's a Muslim-hating Trump supporter, though. I never thought about it, but I guess I would have imagined that the cast of the Brady Bunch would be right of center but with no really strong political opinions. Pretty much the same with the Partridge Family. Except for Danny Bonaduce.
There have been a few occasions over the years--and I know other people this has happened to--when I've gotten into political arguments with strangers and slowly realized that they were mentally ill. It's always embarrassing. I look around hoping nobody had been listening.
I don't know who Leon Acord-Whiting is, but he should probably feel the same way when he realizes he was arguing with Cindy Brady.
