So what’s the big deal with Ann Coulter and her “inflammatory” gay slur against Democratic Presidential candidate John Edwards?
The Associated Press goes out of its way to call the word “faggot”, theFaggot is the f-word? Huh? Since when? I always thought the F-word was “Fuck”.
It amazes me that the media can be so hyper-sensitive over perceived slurs to the gay community when they, on a regular basis, have no problem in lessening the pain and hurt of Israelis by omitting details of reports, downright fabrications by Reuter’s photographers etc. etc. etc. ad nauseum.
It all depends on the media outlet’s political leanings as to what is truly important to them.
I can’t seem to recall the media getting their panties all twisted up when
comedian Bill Maher said something to the effect of “A lot of people would live
if the assassination attempt on Dick Cheney had been successful”.
I suppose the American public should not be surprised at the liberal media (and now yes, idiot conservatives too like John McCain and Michelle Malkin) for condemning Coulter for her remarks at the Washington Conference concerning John Edwards.
The media has a hard time using the “t-word” word too. To them, a “terrorist” is always a “militant.”
I guess that is why the American Public, and probably the public in every country around the world now, has to learn to call a “faggot” a “Gay Person.”
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t advocate treating any particular group of people wrongly, and I really don’t think it was cool for Coulter to call John Edwards a faggot. But I also happen to think I am just freaking sick and tired of the media’s (amongst others) hypocrisy and ridiculous political correctness.
Long live Ann Coulter and yeah…I guess Bill Maher too.
