This is going to cost me about 3/4 of my traffic
but I am delinking The Other McCain. Yesterday he put up a post that ended –
Why is Arianna defending Charlie Crist? I don’t know, but she certainly has an extensive history of supporting closeted gay Republicans. IYKWIMAITYD.
In other words “don’t vote for Crist, he’s a fag”
I questioned him on it this morning and his response was that it’s just politics not homophobia and that Crist had gone dirty first. That may be but I am not following the FL Senate race, and I don’t link Crist, and I’m sorry this crosses the line from politics to intolerance.
Unreligious Right noted in the comments-
Just a thought… I have some left-wing atheist sites linked that I disagree with strongly on about 99% of topics not related to atheism. Putting someone on the blogroll doesn’t necessarily imply endorsement. If someone links me, I link them back just as a reciprocal thing, whether I like their site or not.
My response –
You’re right and I had just come to the same conclusion after I cooled down a bit. Err in haste repent in leisure. The thing is I know that McCain and Smitty aren’t really homophobic or intolerant or they wouldn’t have had some of the conversations with me that they have. I was just so mad that I wrote stuff I shouldn’t have.
I am going to add The Other McCain back to the blogroll but I reserve the right to make a pain in the ass out of myself over stuff like this.
I also want to add that in my opinion not only was this comment offensive but it’s bad politics. Florida has a large gay population, at least some of them are going to lean conservative how do you think they respond to things like this.
