In my post, “Just Wondering” I asked where the outrage was concerning Michael Savage’s attack on on transgender people. It’s two weeks later, and I’m still asking myself the same question.
Ann Coulter – Called one man a faggot.
Don Imus – Called a team “nappy headed hoes.”
Michael Savage – Called a murdered transwoman a psycho freak. “Yeah, process of becoming a woman — psychopath. [She] should have been in a back ward in a straitjacket for years, howling on major medication.” “But you know what? You’re never gonna make me respect the freak. I don’t want to respect the freak. The freak ought to be glad that they’re allowed to walk around without begging for something.”
Ann Coulter’s punishment – Net Bank, Verizon, Washington Mutual, AT&T/Cingular, Dollar Rent-A-Car, SmileTrain.org, University of Phoenix, Sallie Mae, LasikPlus, Power Chord Academy, Gulf Shores.com/Alabama Gulf Coast Convention and Visitors Bureau, Ulta.com, and Yellow Pages.comÂ all stopped advertising at Coulter’s web site. The Oakland Press , The Mountain Press, The Times of Shreveport, La, The American Press, andÂ the Lancaster New Era have stopped publishing her columns.Â HRC started a letter writing campaign to other papers that carry her.Â
Don Imus – Staples Inc., Bigelow Tea, and Procter & Gamble pulled advertising.Â MSNBC removed Imus in the Morning completely. CBS Radio suspended him for two weeks. There was even a protest on the campus ofÂ Rutgers University.
That’s right, not one repercussion. No press release. No protest. No outrage. Nothing.
GLAAD? HRC? NGLTF? NCTE? GPAC? ANYONE?
