    Activists call for Capital One to drop Alec Baldwin over homophobic tweets

    A coalition of leading gay and straight activists are calling for Capital One to part ways with spokesman Alec Baldwin following his homophobic Twitter rant directed at a reporter.

    “We urge all Americans to ask themselves, ‘What’s in your wallet?’ We hope they will reject Alec Baldwin’s homophobia by cutting up those Capital One cards in their wallets,” Jimmy LaSalvia, gay conservative strategist and GOProud co-founder, told Breitbart.com.

    Baldwin’s controversial tweets read, “[I’d] put my foot up your f**king ass, George Stark, but I’m sure you’d dig it too much,” and “I’m gonna find you George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I’m gonna f**k you…up.”


    Some have pointed out that while Baldwin’s homophobic slurs were similar to TV chef Paula Deen’s racial slurs (she admitted to using the N-word 30 years ago), the fallout is not. The 66-year-old chef was dropped by all of her major business partners, including Target, Walmart, the Food Network and Sears, while so far Baldwin seems to be getting off scot free.

    “Companies know the media won't beat them up for keeping Baldwin on board, despite his violent threat and homophobic comments,” explained Dan Gainor, vice president of business and culture at Media Research Center. “Why? Because he's liberal and the same rules don't apply.”

    so tell me liberals how is it that Paula Deen has her career decimated for something she said 30 years ago, but Baldwin gets a pass for saying something much worse. he just didn't use a homophobic slur he threatened violence against the gay reporter that is a hate crime at least it would be if a conservative did so. the hypocrisy never seams to end with the left

    It's easy, Baldwin is a cash cow and whatever he's in will make someone a lot of money. Paula Deen isn't. She was already on her way to being cancelled as it was.

    It's all about money. The quicker you realize that and get off your "We're so persecuted" thing, you'll notice that things make sense.

    wait wait wait. How exactly is this Alec Baldwin "getting a pass"?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    You didn't really think it through at all. People that protest for gay causes are almost certainly liberal. So these liberals are protesting that he should be fired by capital one. How are liberals giving him a free pass if they're protesting that he get fired?

    30 Rock, which netted him hundreds of thousands of dollars per episode.

    Oh, so you're saying Capital One is run by liberals? Because you're not mad at the liberal protestors asking him to be fired, you're mad at the 'liberal' bank owners who won't fire him?

    Bahahahahahahahahaha.. A gay conservative activist!!! Gays.... that support a party whose platform very clearly discriminates against them. That'd be like a black member of the KKK.

    Oh you, this had nothing to do with liberals at all, did it?
