Confronted with a considerable record of liberal media gay bashing, including its own approving post of a Los Angeles Times article that said a gay man who seeks out sex from a 16 year old boy needs “experts in psychiatry and sexual misconduct,” Media Matters went into black-out overdrive.
It is, admittedly, an awkward revelation for the crew at Media Mattress.
After participating in a furious witch hunt against a gay Republican Congressman for sending sexually suggestive e-mails and text messages to 16-year-old House pages, the Mattress dwellers are waking up to the realization that they helped undermine the political survival of Obama Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings. Jennings, of course, condoned just such an affair.
So which is it, Mattress-ites? Are gays, as you eagerly posted in 2006, in need of psychiatric help for sexual misconduct when dealing with 16 year olds cavorting with older men? Is gay sex between an older man and a 16 year old, as the DNCC said, a “sex crime”? Did Mr. Jennings look a sex crime in the eye and respond by saying a condom should be used?
No wonder you have nothing to say.
Surely Mr. Jennings wishes you had learned to be quiet in 2006.
But the gay witch hunt was on. And you and your friends couldn’t mount your brooms fast enough.
The word shameful comes to mind, but you would have to have a sense of shame in the first place.
