Daily Dish – February 25
In any case, he hits my anger at this hypocrisy of the left right on the nose.
The real scandal is the blatant use of homophobic rhetoric by the self-appointed Savonarolas of homo-left-wingery. It’s an Animal Farm moment: the difference between a fanatic on the gay left and a fanatic on the religious right is harder and harder to discern. Just ask yourself: if a Catholic conservative blogger had found out that a liberal-leaning pseudo-pundit/reporter was a gay sex worker, had outed the guy as gay and a “hooker,” published pictures of the guy naked, and demanded a response from a Democratic administration, do you think gay rights groups would be silent? They’d rightly be outraged. But the left can get away with anything, can’t they? Especially homophobia.
You got it, Sully. We’ve been making that case on saying that here for weeks on a variety of subjects.
UPDATE: A GP Reader notes that this cartoon is up at AmericaBlog.org. “Would the gay left find this cartoon funny if the shoe were on the other foot?” Of course not, there would be outrage all over Gay Street.
Why is homophobia now a talking point of the left wing? And they call me self-loathing! *grin*
