Leftists have little or no problem with their own going homophobic
It's worth noting the following:
Let's not forget how GLAAD handled CNN anchor Roland Martin's case. Martin, who is black, was castigated by GLAAD for a series of Tweets regarding a soccer player that were likely meant as humorous, not mean spirited.For a group that's oh-so concerned about discrimination against gays and lesbians, they seem to have no problem discriminating against blacks.
Martin apologized. He also lost his job at CNN thanks, in part, to pressure from groups like GLAAD.
Not everyone on the left is happy about the lenient approach to Baldwin. Andrew Sullivan, that former employee of the New Republic, said he shouldn't get a free pass, but that's what he's getting. And Baldwin, in his attempt to say he's sorry, attacked the Tea Party, probably his way of making a goodwill gesture to the left. So he's sorry he wrote a homophobic rant, yet he's not sorry for insulting the Tea Party? How hypocritical of him.
