HRC blogs about 3-year-old using anti-gay slur;
silent when adult gay activist uses it

This is a screen capture I just made of my search on HRC’s blog for “Dan Savage“:

It has been a full month (and three days) since Mr. Savage used “faggot” as a derogatory slur.  And still HRC still hasn’t spoken up.

And yet when Sarah Palin’s grandson used the same slur and his mother said (on her reality show) that this suggests she’s “doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp. I know he’s going to continue to push the boundaries and push the limits.” Seems she’s acknowledging this is not a good term to use.

Maybe she should talk to Dan Savage.   Someone’s been doing a terrible job disciplining that bully; he continues to push the boundaries, push the limits.

The folks at HRC’s blog found the Palin episode worthy of a blog post, reminding us “this isn’t the first time the anti-gay phrase has landed one of the Palin daughters in hot water. Two years ago, Willow herself used the same slur on Facebook.”  (H/t reader Just Me in the comments.)

When a three-year-old utters the word, “faggot,” HRC sees fit to issue a blog post.  When a grown man uses it to slur his political adversaries, the supposed gay advocacy outfit is silent.  Wonder why that is.

UPDATE: Did 3-year-old really use the gay slur? (Via Mark Steyn.)

Breitbart reports GLAAD hypocrisy (gay media silent)

Seems the conservative media is doing what the gay media won’t: call out gay organizations for their hypocrisy. Breitbart reports:

When CNN’s Roland Martin sent out a series of Tweets about an underwear commercial starring soccer standout David Beckham GLAAD snapped into action.

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation claimed Martin’s Tweets were tantamount to gay bashing, and Martin had to undergo the standard public deprogramming effort to escape from future punishment.

Just ask film director Brett Ratner how that feels.

But when BuzzFeed’s Michael Hastings fired off a Tweet that questioned the masculinity of Richard Grenell, an openly gay political consultant who recently worked for Mitt Romney, the gay rights group went silent.

Breitbart News reached out to GLAAD’s PR arm twice over the last seven days for comment.

The group chose not to respond.

Maybe they should change the name of their outfit from GLAAD to GLAAD-EDACRGL (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation — Except for Defamation Against Conservative and Republican Gays and Lesbians).

By the way, it’s now been more than a month since Dan Savage uttered his “hateful remarks” in a public forum and still HRC hasn’t spoken up.
