32. I understand what you are saying.
Earlier you implied it was a RW tactic. No. The RW tactic is debating with someone about finances and saying, "well, I should have guessed a homosexual would think this way." The two have nothing to do with one another. Now, what I am talking about is Senator Goodhater standing on the Senate floor speaking about the ills of homosexuality and how laws should be passed to curtail their (gay people) rights. All the while, he is carrying on a sexual relationship with his page. But, Senator Closet, says nothing publicly about gays, doesn't show condemnation or support, and he is also having affair with Senator Goodhater's page. I would not be in favor of "outing" Senator Closet, but Sen. Goodhater...he'd be "out, out, damn" liar. The RW tactic would be to out the one who said nothing and conceal the one who supports their agenda.
