It’s not about Buck

Of course it is. That comment about finding Democrats was nothing but a bunch of self-serving nonsense to make himself feel superior. And it’s disingenuous because there have been plenty of Republicans in the past two years who have gone on stage with noted bigots, anti-Semites, truthers, racists, birthers, and religious fanatics, and there haven’t been any condemnations coming from the right over it.

This isn’t about the MBF. It’s about the fact that the GOP does this sort of shit all the time and no one bats an eye, but as soon as it’s done on the left, we’re all expected to fall in line and be good little drones to find examples of elected officials condemning Clyburn. Fuck that. If he wants that list, he can compile it himself.

try to get past that friend and look at what Clyburn is doing.

I don’t like what Clyburn’s doing. I loathe Farrakhan. But I refuse to play the game of looking for Dems that are criticizing this when a similar event on the right would be met with a shrug of the shoulders.
