Busting the intolerant right myth
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, April 05, 2006

OK, we've ridden the McKinney wave about as far as it's going to go. So on to other things.

Oh, I know, let's put a stake through the heart of the old stereotype that it is only the right which is mean and intolerant. I give you none other than Rebecca Traister of Salon pointing out that "ain't necessarily true":
Let's hear it for those on the left who dismiss a man they don't like by calling him "gay," and who take a woman down a couple of notches by throwing around the word "whore" and labeling her ugly, old and desperate.
She's talking about remarks left on Huffington Post concerning the marriage of NBC correspondent Campbell Brown and Fox News analyst and GOP strategist Dan Senor.

Read the whole thing.

Class, nothing but class.

I read that post earlier, and it’s sick. How can you talk policy with people who clearly think you’re less than human?

The joke is really on those who think any specific behavior is isolated to just one side of the political spectrum.

I have to agree with Robb here. There are degenerates in all parties. However, the right does NOT make a consistent attempt to portray themselves as the party of tolerance. That is the point of this post, I believe.
