A few days ago, Bruce alerted me to Pat Dollard’s tweet reminding us that current MSNBC host Al Sharpton once referenced “Greek homos.” After a quick google search, I learned that the left-leaning pundit also used a term that caused the folks at HRC to get their panties all in a bunch when the daughter of a prominent Republican celebrity used it.
Although I could find no reference online indicating that HRC rebuked the bombastic Reverend for his use of the term, they did honor him in 2005 as one of their “Top 10 Straight Advocates for Gay and Transgender Rights“.
Now, people can surely change. And perhaps HRC did fault Mr. Sharpton when he made these statements and their rebukes are no longer online. But, that man did, in recent years, defend a prejudiced pastor who used anti-gay rhetoric.
Wonder why HRC and GLAAD are not calling for him to publicly rebuke his past statements in order to retain his post on MSNBC. I mean, if they called on Sarah Palin to apologize publicly for her teenage daughter’s remark.
Just sayin’ . . .
