What If George W. Bush Had Called Gay Rights Activists 'Faggots?'
newsbusters ^ | 5/5/10 | Brent Bozell

Posted on 05/05/2010 2:29:06 PM PDT by Nachum

Editor's Note: NewsBusters Publisher and Media Research Center President President Brent Bozell released the following statement today regarding the broadcast and cable news media's silence about President Barack Obama's use of a crass sexual slang term to refer to Tea Party members.

If President George W. Bush had slurred the gay-rights movement during his presidency, it would have immediately dominated the news of every single national media outlet. Reporters would have pummeled the Administration and demanded an explanation and apology for the offense, and rightly so. You don’t smear anyone – let alone fellow Americans who elected you to office – regardless of your political differences.

“What If George W. Bush Had Called Gay Rights Activists ‘Faggots?’”

Heck you don’t even have to go that far. What if George W called gay rights activists “Teabaggers”?

The Lavender Mafia is in a tizzy today about a Christian “leader” nobody ever heard of having a “rentboy”.

Barney Frank had a rent boy executive at Fannie Mae and they didn’t care.

Larry Sinclair alleged a crack fueled sexual escapade with Barack Obama and they didn’t blink.

We deserve to know which anchors are homosexuals. Why is “don’t ask don’t tell” just bad policy for the military? Why must journalists remain in the closet? The public deserves to know why they spin these issues.

They also used the term “chickenhawks” when patriots rallied to support the troops in Iraq.

Chickenhawk is a term used to describe an older man who cruises boys for sex.

In the interest of brevity, which ones aren't?

The Left can't ever figure out those damn acronyms so they went straight to the Urban dictionary for reference.

Well you can’t expect the media to condemn obama calling us Tea Baggers when it was one of their esteemed bretheren who first used the term to describe us. Since then it has become part of their common lexicon. And since so many of them enjoy the activity the term implies they can’t understand why anyone would object to their use of said term.

“Tea Bagger” is a gay sexual slur.

The Left is Vile and Evil and exists to denigrate all that is Good and Just.

If a “TEA Party” member can be maligned, they’ll do it.

If a Priest can be maligned, they’ll do it.

If an unborn baby can be maligned, they’ll do it.

If a disabled person can be maligned, they’ll do it.

If a non-RINO Republican can be maligned, they’ll do it.

Philippians 4: 8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Maybe a TEA Party member could put this on a poster to glaringly reflect what is good to those who are not.

More aptly, if he had called leftist protesters in general “cornholers”, “buggerers” or something describing a gay sexual act, as Obama and the leftists do with conservatives, he would be vilified to this day.

No, he called us teabaggers, which is a gay slur and it was intended as such, just like his childish display of his middle finger during his campaign.

Larry Sinclair. The media doesn’t want to hear anything of it even though Larry went on the record to talk of it.
