Let’s Be Honest


The left went crazy nuts over the fact that some audience members booed a gay American soldier after he asked this question at the last GOP debate:

“My question is, under one of your presidencies, do you intend to circumvent the progress that’s been made for gay and lesbian soldiers in the military?”

It was certainly wrong to boo this soldier, no matter what his question, because of the sacrifice he makes, but does anyone doubt for a moment that if a soldier had asked at a Democrat debate, “Are any one of you willing to defend traditional marriage and fight the recent rulings in states that make gay marriage legal?” that he WOULDN’T have been booed? Of course he would have. If a soldier asked the Democrats “Will you fight for the rights of the unborn child to live?” I know some audience members would boo. So please.

Clearly, in both cases, the audiences would be booing the question because it disagrees with their worldview.

In a perfect world we would all hope that there would be civil disagreement and respect for one another’s opinion. But we live in a truly imperfect world, but let’s not pretend that one side would have acted any differently than the other.
