Well, I'm sure you all remember when we discussed the "gay commercial" in Montana where the Democrat tried to appeal to homophobes in the state. If not, you can read it here. Now, Strom Thurmond's Senate seat is up for grabs in South Carolina, and Democrat candidate Alex Sanders is not above exploiting homophobia if it gets him votes. After his Republican opponent Lindsey Graham received a televised endorsement from former NY Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Sanders said of Giuliani, "He's an ultra-liberal. His wife kicked him out and he moved in with two gay men and a Shih Tzu. Is that South Carolina values? I don't think so." Of course, there is no peep from this nation's liberal elite press about these outrageous and politically incorrect comments. It only ran in the South Carolina paper The State. Why? Because these comments are from one of their own. Can you imagine if it had been a Republican saying that? it would be above the fold in the New York Times and every gay rights group in the country would be burning him in effigy right now. It must be nice for the Democrats to have an entirely complicit national media machine on their side. It's the same media machine that continues to gloss over the fact that the only Klansman currently serving in the US Senate is a Democrat, Robert Byrd; a man who passionately fought on the Senate floor against integrating the US military ("I will never fight with a Negro by my side. Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.") and who has used the dreaded N-word in public as recently as two years ago ("There are white niggers. I've seen a lot of white niggers in my time. I'm gonna use that word."). And let's not forget California Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante, who actually used the N-word in a speech to a local chapter of the NAACP, which immediately cause a third of those attending the speech to walk out. The story, of course, was buried around page nine in the local papers the next day and received no national attention. His apology was immediately accepted with grace by the NAACP. Ah, the perks of being a member of the "politically correct" party. You can be as politically incorrect as you want with no consequences. :shrug: -Lyle J.P.
