Anti-LGBT pundits hate nothing more than own words, example #532,123

by Jeremy Hooper

Thanks for the GLAAD CAP shout out, Brent Bozell:

The official gay censorship lobbies — from the Orwellian-named "GLAAD" to the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association — define "fairness and accuracy" as being stories that try to scrape "fairness" away, treating opposition like used gum on someone's shoe. GLAAD created what they call the "Commentator Accountability Project" designed to discourage reporters and TV bookers from booking "hate" guests.
...
To quote GLAAD censor Aaron McQuade, "Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from the consequences of speech." If they prevail, the "consequences" of speaking in opposition to the gay lobby equals zero bookings. In their dreamland, every "news" segment looks like the usual MSNBC "Lean Forward" gay segment where everyone embraces the equality and fluidity of "sexual preference."

As you hopefully know, GLAAD CAP is the project that does nothing more—literally, nothing more—than round up the anti-LGBT comments that the anti-LGBT commentators themselves put on the record. And that, my friends, is what the other side hates most: the mirror that we hold up to their movement.
