Let’s say when rustling around in the closet of some leading conservative pundit with a weekly television show, an investigator finds that when that conservative was working in government, he asked the FBI to find out if any of his political rivals were gay?Â Let’s say this very pundit had investigated the sexuality of one of his peers.
How would the Human Right Campaign (HRC), the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF) react?Â Other gay groups?Â You can bet they’d be calling for his head, demanding he, at minimum issue an apology, quite possibly attend sensitivity training classes and maybe even demand the network to drop his show.Â At minimum, they would issue a statement on this.
Since a leading liberal pundit did just that, I’m about to investigate how they reacted.Â Now, as I type these words, I admit not having yet checked their websites nor done any manner of google searches into this matter, but I have reached a preliminary conclusion, that they haven’t mentioned it.
Time will tell how right I am.Â And whether I need add “Liberal Hypocrisy” as a category for this post.
Keep an eye on this post.Â Updates to come.
HRC UPDATE:Â Here’s the only reference to Bill Moyers on the HRC web-site.
NGLTF UPDATE:Â My search yielded no results.
I was right!Â I was right.Â Oh, how easy it is to predict how these groups will react to a Democrat’s questionable conduct on matters of sexuality.
I can’t even find this on the Washington Blade web-site, but at least they linked this Washington Post story.
Time to add a new category to this post.
