Advice columnist and radical gay activist Dan Savage founded the ‘It Gets Better’ project, which aims to encourage gay and lesbian youth that everything gets better. The website asks people to join the anti-bullying crusade by taking an oath:
I believe in a world where hope outshines fear. I commit to stand up and speak out against hate and intolerance. My support for LGBTQ youth will be steadfast. I am part of a global community that is proud and resolute in its efforts to create a brighter, more inclusive world for all people. I know it will get better.
The emphasis on the vow to "speak out against hate" is ironic because Savage started his radio program recently with this sentence:
"I want to open today’s show talking about someone I hate."
It didn't take listeners long to determine he was about to talk about a Republican -- the people that liberals think deserve hate (and more!) because of their political beliefs. Don't believe me? Read what Savage said about the First Lady:
... God knows there’s enough hate in the world, and I don’t want to add to the sum total but forgive me, I have got to get this off my chest: I f***ing hate Melania Trump. I’m not alone in loathing Donald Trump’s third wife — she’s married to a misogynist after all. Odds are good her husband hates her, too. But there are some folks on the left who not only don’t hate her. They view her as some sort of sympathetic figure.
The pretty princess in the tower locked up by the orange ogre with the bad combover, a princess desperately blinking out distress signals during swearing-in ceremonies and inaugural balls. I think we can credit that undeserving charitable view of our new first lady to our propensity as humans, as a species to think that the insides of pretty people match the outsides of pretty people. And that may be true sometimes but only randomly. And everyone always beware of confirmation bias. And you know what it’s definitely not true in this case.
Mrs. Trump, Melania Trump, is as ugly on the inside as she is pretty on the outside. She is a birther. Pretty Melania went on TV to push the same racist conspiracy theories about Barack Obama that her husband did. She’s an immigrant who doesn’t give a s**t about the plight of other immigrants. She’s famously a plagiarist. And she’s brought ruinous lawsuits against journalists and bloggers accusing them of, among other things, potentially interfering with her ability to profit off her role as first lady.
In other words, Savage is not against hate. He completely fine with hate, as long as it is directed toward people he also hates.
Dear Republicans, it doesn't get better. Not with people like Savage showing their true colors every single day.
