Once Again: Leftist Hate Speech is OK
Most readers by now will be aware that Democrat Presidential hopeful John Edwards put on his staff two Christianity-hating bloggers. Their extreme abuse of Christianity and Christians was widely protested -- by Catholics in particular -- and one of them, Amanda Marcotte, eventually resigned under that pressure.
But, as at the time of writing this, one was still employed by Edwards: Melissa McEwan. In one of her blog posts, she referred to religious conservatives as President Bush's "wingnut Christofascist base." If that's not hate speech and biogotry what would be? What would happen if someone referred to certain homosexual groups as the Democrat "wingnut AnalFascist base"? No need to guess, is there?
But Leftist hate speech is OK, apparently. That a Democrat as prominent as Edwards persists with employing a hater like McEwan shows that all the Democrat huffing and puffing about hate speech is pure hypocrisy. They don't care about hate speech at all. They just use it as a stick to attack Christians and conservatives with.
Details here and here. And Don Surber comments on Marcotte's claim that she is a "victim". Conservatives who break Leftist rules about speech are expected to apologize for it but there has been no apology from Marcotte.
