    Meghan McCain: Cut It Out, Internet Bullies! - The Daily Beast

    She hit the nail on the head. Not that anything will change - but she is right.

    Hey, GOProud went after her big time over Meghan" the faux conservative" fools comments about Breitbart as well they should. The woman showed she knows nothing, nada about Andrew and his monumental contributions to the conservative gay community.

    Many conservative and conservative gays were really insulted by her calling Breitbart an extremist.

    Distortion, lies, twisting the facts, taking things out of context, all specialties of the radical right.

    For those that don't know Breitbart's history with the conservative gay movement, here ya go. From a thread I made the other day:


    The moron McCain didn't even know Breitbart's history of supporting gays when she went on Al Sharpton's show and opened her big fat trap about Breitbart being an extremist.

    I love this quote:

    “Meghan McCain should be absolutely ashamed of herself,” GOProud co-founders Christopher R. Barron and Jimmy LaSalvia said in a joint statement.

    “She went on a liberal network with a liberal host and demonized Andrew Breitbart. During his life, Andrew Breitbart did more for gay people, and showed more political courage on behalf of gay people, than Meghan McCain could ever dream of,” they said.



    And for those that don't know. Andrew was a serious supporter of gays and gay rights.

    “When GOProud was just getting started and under intense fire from anti-gay forces within the conservative movement, Andrew Breitbart reached out to us and took up our fight as his own.

    Andrew showed real courage, standing up to the intolerance of some in the conservative movement,” LaSalvia and Barron added, noting that Breitbart was neither hateful nor extremist.



    And Breitbart truly championed GOProud.

    GOProud is a national organization of gay conservatives and their straight supporters. Breitbart served on the organization’s board and memorably hosted a party with the group during the 2011 CPAC conference.

    "Internet Bullies"
    "Internet Wimps"

    If a person is so mentally weak that they can be "bullied" over the internet, perhaps they should refrain from using the internet.

    She shouldn't hang out in the kitchen if her skin isn't thick enough and she's going to admit that it hurts and keeps her up at night.

    Taking what out of context? She slags conservatives, she gets slagged back. Meghan continually insults conservatives. McCain better get a thicker skin. Quickly.

    Meghan McCain? Is she not playing the right wing game properly and is being thrown under the bus?
    This is John McCain's daughter?

    Sorry I don't watch network politics so I miss the political soaps.

    If I can't call Meghan McCain a shithead, then I wouldn't be able to call anyone a shithead.
