Tim Hardaway: "I Hate Gay People"

And that's the actual quote. But there's so much more.

The five time All Star was asked how he would deal with a gay teammate.

"First of all I wouldn't want him on my team," said Hardaway. "Second of all, if he was on my team I would really distance myself from him because I don't think that's right and I don't think he should be in the locker room when we're in the locker room."

Le Batard took Hardaway to task, pointing out that his comments were 'flatly homophobic' and bigoted, but that only seemed to stir up the former point guard.

"Well, you know, I hate gay people," Hardaway said in response to Le Batard. "I let it be known I don't like gay people. I don't like to be around gay people. I'm homophobic. It shouldn't be in the world, in the United States, I don't like it."

Okay, homophobia is bad, but it exists.

The interesting thing here is that the liberals' thirty year Tolerance Project has been applied only to whites and particularly straight white males. Only these folks get mau-maued with charges of hatred.

By and large. There are exceptions here and there.

And the liberal Coalition of the Oppressed has sort of kept itself together by fixating its collective ire on the enemy -- Straight White Males.

Blacks have been given a pass. There was an incident in the NBA about ten years ago when some New York Knicks said, basically, that anyone who doesn't believe in Jesus is going to Hell. Including Jews. And that produced a small brouhaha.

(Christians, you see, aren't allowed to say what just about every other religious believer can say, i.e., "My religion is the correct one and God will reward me for following it." Whites have been browbeaten a bit into accepting this -- that such statements are impolitic, impolite, and perhaps even "hateful" -- but not blacks.)

And the players didn't apologize much for it, because they didn't think they'd done anything wrong. Blacks have not been relentless instructed to be "sensitive" to other cultures, religions, races and lifestyles for thirty years now.

The liberal PC cops don't dare imposing their own rules on their political bretheren for fear of being told to fuck off, and alienating members of the coalition. These are weapons to be used against one's enemies, not against one's allies.

But that political calculation comes at a price. Because it wasn't a prominent white guy questioning whether Joe Lieberman could put aside his Jewish dual-loyalties enough to serve as Vice President -- it was a local NAACP chapter head, a black guy. And now a black guy saying, without any embarassment whatsoever, that he hates gays.

The liberals are going to have to knock Hardaway around a bit (as he should be), but they can't be relishing the prospect of doing so. Minorities -- members of the Coaltion -- are without sin and incapable of biogotry and hatred, the Standard Model claims. College courses preach that blacks can't be guilty of such things, even in theory.

It's really about time that those who profess to be so concerned with hatred began policing their own political confreres for the sins they're so eager to extirpate in those outside the Coalition.
