HRC called upon Sarah Palin to “speak up” about her teenage daughter’s use of anti-gay slur, but won’t speak out when a gay Republican is beaten and hospitalized in a politically motivated attack.
The man who attacked “Kyle Wood, a full-time volunteer working for GOP House candidate Chad Lee” in Wisconsin said he had “warned” the young man. Wood believes . . .
. . . his attacker’s reference to a warning likely pointed to graffiti he found painted on his car last week. The vandalism included the phrases “house trained republican faggot,” “traitor,” and “ur like a jew 4 hitler.”
Those slurs, he explained, were references to him being a gay Republican working to help Lee, a straight GOP candidate, defeat the openly gay Democrat Mark Pocan.
The man used the same slur Sarah Palin’s daughter had used, but, unlike the Republican teen, followed it up with a brutal attack.
Yet, HRC called upon a woman who never uttered the slur to “speak up,” but won’t speak up when a vandal uses the term against a gay Republican, then proceeds to beat him.
