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