I expect to have more to say later in the day about HotAir’s interview with our friend Jimmy LaSalvia, but want to keep this post brief to focus on one thing Jimmy said in response to the question about the mean-spirited attacks on GOProud coming from the left:
It seems that it’s OK to use racist, masochistic, anti-Semitic, and homophobic words and phrases when attacking gay conservatives. Nobody in the mainstream media condemns it or comes to our defense. We are fortunate to have a lot of friends in the conservative blogosphere who regularly stand up for us. That means a lot to us, and it gives us the resolve to continue to stand up to the left wing bullies.
Read the whole thing. Emphasis added. Once again (and this reaffirmed in my conversation with Richard Grenell last night), the overwhelming (as in over 90%) of the vicious attacks on gay conservatives come from the gay left, many of which, to borrow an expression from Alan Jay Lerner, “would make a sailor blush“.
Do wonder when our friends in the legacy media will get around to reporting the story of this liberal intolerance.
This is not the first time left-wing bullies have expressed their animus against gay conservatives in hateful terms. Nor will it (alas!) be the last.
