Conservatives 'Would Be Vilified'
As NewsBusters previously reported, Alec Baldwin had another major meltdown on Twitter Thursday which included a homophobic attack on a British reporter.
CNN's Anderson Cooper struck back Friday posting on Twitter, "Why does #AlecBaldwin get a pass when he uses gay slurs? If a conservative talked of beating up a 'queen' they would be vilified":
Well Anderson, it's simple: liberals are allowed to say and do whatever they want no matter how offensive and hypocrites in the media will always give them a pass.
It's like how feminist groups such as the National Organization for Women weren't at all bothered by how President Clinton treated women.
Since they agreed with his politics, his sexual misdeeds were unimportant.
Frankly, I'm surprised Cooper didn't realize this up until now, and that it took a slur hitting him where he lives to wake him up to the hypocrisy.
Imagine a conservative radio host making such a comment. Seems doubtful he'd be on radio any longer.
But a liberal such as Baldwin tweeting this?
Probably won't impact his career one bit.

Baldwin's tweets are posted here, *vulgar language warning!* A liberal homosexual exhibiting some intellectual honesty. Is Anderson Cooper trying to make amends for practically coining the slur "teabaggers"?
seriously, did he really need to ask?

The left is an unholy alliance of unlikely allies - many of them do not like one another - but they set aside their differences and unite for a common goal. Power.

Isn’t this another case of the pot calling the kettle black?
Same tactic, different target ?

“Baldwin’s tweets are posted here”.
I have never read a tweet, and do not intend to start.
I guess it has to do with Twitter, which I have never been to.
I have all the internet and communications that I need.

She hasn’t repented enough yet.
She’ll have to go to church with Je$$e and go on The View first.

For one thing, Baldwin does NOT have a strong southern drawl.

Anderson needs to be careful. Asking these sort of questions will get you blacklisted in the American Pravda Press.
