Little liberal thugs and big conservative ones. Part 1.

Danger, danger, Will Robinson! New neo-con talking point approaching! And as Our Lady of Hateful Bile reports here, "The tolerant Left targets a 7 year old homophobe," describing how a bunch of little liberal "thug-kins" put the boots to ... oh, read it yourself.

Naturally, we on the Left are supposed to be outraged over this but, strangely, I'm having some difficulty getting all cranked up about it. See, I'm wondering where all that Kate-flavoured outrage was when, say, abortion provider Dr. Barnett Slepian was murdered in front of his family. Or when Matthew Shepard was beaten and left to die tied to a fence because of his sexuality. Or, if you want to get into simple assault, when a Young Republican kicked a female protestor who was already being held down by three secret service agents.

So, really, Kate, you have a lot of nerve being this annoyingly selective about what gets your thong in a knot. And while I don't condone a bunch of kids ganging up on a single victim, comparatively speaking, I still don't think that equates to beating someone to death. So just spare me the righteous indignation, OK? The day you start treating all of these cases equally is the day clinically sane people will start taking you seriously.

And, no, we're not even remotely done with this incident yet. But coffee awaits.

, it's more than a little grating to read McCullough's closer to that article:

It's also very sad that Ash's compadres have sunk to the level of assaulting the seven year old child of David Parker in their attempts to shut him up.

But then again liberals don't believe in absolutes, morality, or the law - so why should we be surprised?

Why, yes, Kevin -- if we liberals really don't believe in morality or the law, why should you be surprised? You and the rest of your right-wing nutbar friends spend all your time accusing all of us over here on the Left of a total lack of moral absolutes, but still manage to work up suitable outrage when we allegedly act that way.

You might want to try a little consistency there, Kevin. It might hurt the first few times, but you'll get used to it, I'm sure.
