Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Fri Jan 4, 2013, 05:06 PM

Pentagon bans Towleroad, AMERICAblog sites for being “LGBT.” Coulter, Limbaugh ok.

UPDATE: Even more gay news sites have been found to have been banned by the Pentagon, while an officially-designated hate group is not. Good as You, Bilerico – banned. AFA, NOM, Red State, Breitbart, Glenn Beck – not banned.

UPDATE: The filter category used by the Pentagon, “LGBT,” also bans gay anti-bullying and suicide prevention sites.

It’s bad enough the United States Department of Defense censors Towleroad and AMERICAblog – banning the gay civil rights Web sites from being accessed on DOD computers – and it’s even worse that the Pentagon has no problem permitting their computers to access Ann Coulter’s and Rush Limbaugh’s hate-filled Web sites.

And now they want Chuck Hagel to run the place? If it's a fight they want, I say it's a fight we give them.

1. This goes on in a lot of school systems as well.

ACLU had or has a whole initiative directed toward UN-banning LGBT sites from school systems.

I wrote a long email to Bloomberg's NYC school's chancellor asking him to explain why PFLAG and EqualityForum.org were blocked.

That was last year. Still waiting for a reply. Or an acknowledgement.

4. I don't see this getting any better. I guess can we can always be surprised, but...

Once again, I feel betrayed.

5. Don't look now, but there is a contingent on DU that is so keen to promote Hagel

that they will smear actual Democrats like Barney Frank or anyone else who opposes his nomination.
