Putz: Homophobia is "Partisan"


WENDY KAMINER says that the ACLU is becoming steadily more partisan.

Except that's not what she's saying.

What Kaminer wonders is why the ACLU doesn't defend a high school kid's right to be a bigot (or, as Kaminer so delicately puts it, "wear a T-shirt condemning homosexuality") or, in the case of the "Muhammad cartoons," a newspaper's right to bait Muslims.

Now, whether the ACLU should have defended these parties is up for debate. But let's not delude ourselves into calling this a "partisan matter." Unless, of course, Putz is finally conceding that bigotry is a conservative trait.
