The answer to that question is, apparently, a lot more:

Wow, that was easy.

Even TMZ wasn’t buying GLAAD’s quick acceptance of Baldwin’s “apology”:

GLAAD left many others bewildered as well:

In between shoots for Capital One commercials, perhaps?


GLAAD insists it’s not a free pass. It’s that Baldwin is well on his way to getting a pass.


‘Almost all of my best friends are gay’; Alec Baldwin’s wife defends ‘queen’ slur

Hilary Rosen knows Alec Baldwin’s heart (and mouth): ‘He’s not a homophobe’

  • ChampionCapua

    Gee, I used to get quoted on Twitchy regularly. Oh well: What’s in #AlecBaldwin’s wallet? A free pass to slur gays compliments of @glaad , complete with Orwellian headline:

  • detroit19

    Paula Deen apologized, AND asked forgiveness, for something she said 20-30 years ago, not 20-30 minutes ago. Hypocrites much?

    • lainer51


    • SideshowJon36

      She hasn’t paid reparation money to Je$$e Jack$on yet

      • Stephen K

        She must have tithed some amount to the good Reverend, because he actually came out and made some tepid statement in support of her to the effect that she had suffered enough.

        He was promptly shredded by the caring and compassionate left for his efforts. I do love me some blue on blue catfight. :)

        • Pat R.

          those catfights are the very best…break out the popcorn and enjoy!

    • trixiewoobeans

      The Left is a joke and Phonies abound. I hope people are realizing that, like I did back in the day. They make the rules, and the rules change or are temporarily rescinded frequently, depending on who broke them, and how important they are to the big picture. Important Political, Media and Entertainment industry connections (friends in high places) are vitally important if you get a pass. Alec has all three.

      After the SCOTUS ruling, JoeMGN won’t surface for air for a month. Even then he’ll say nothing about Baldwin.

        Heh. That might be true. It is Gay Pride week in NYC after all. After the SCOTUS ruling, who knows what on earth is happening in the city right now.

        • Pat R.

          Had to go into Midtown this afternoon for an MD appointment. Ever seen what a city looks like after an all-night Drunk-I did.
          It wasn’t pretty. To use the vernacular of my down-under relatives, some of the streets were coated in “Technicolor Yawn”

          • wwbdinct

            I’ll be there tomorrow visiting my lefty relatives who live in the city. Thanks for the visual (I think)…. I might run into JoeMyGodNYC passed out dead drunk somewhere around Broadway and 57th! I’ll report back.

            Was that a quote from Airplane?

  • $4356589

    For one, “queen” is hardly as incendiary a slur as some other terms used to disparage gays. Plus context is important: was the reference friendly or used with the intent to convey hate?

    Love how conservalemmings jump on Baldwin for a softball epithet, but will defend someone like Paula Deen to the hilt for using a far worse word and having appalling ideas to exploit minorities, or George Zimmerman despite (or perhaps because of) his verifiable prejudices. Further enforcing the “if liberals are for it, we’re against it without even thinking about it” reflex that’s apparently programmed in to right-wingers.

    • r07a23c

      It was not friendly. In this instance, it is the left who is reflexively defending one of their own.

    • 1CatEye

      He also threatened to put his foot up the man’s rear. Sounds friendly to me, you moron.
      Paul Deen said what she said 30 years ago. Get over it. Did you know the “context” of her remark? It was right after a black man shoved a gun in her face and robbed her at work.
      Seems like dims get a pass (see the Minn Rep who made a racist comment about Clarence Thomas, he got a pass, too) whenever they make these kind of remarks. And if you think gayness is so great, why is that the first insult you hypocrites come up with?

      • Pat R.

        This goes to prove a theory many have:
        Lefties are the biggest bigots and homophobes going. They shield it by calling others the above. Worse still is that always get a pass when THEY flame off at the mouth by the very people they denigrate.

        • Finrod Felagund

          If they didn’t have projection, they might get disturbed by their own feelings.

    • alicepoli1land

      Zeke, how about you go read what Baldwin said before commenting. What he said was in no way “friendly”. He said it hatefully then followed up by saying that “he would shove his foot up the reporter’s ass … But he’d probably enjoy that” (since he’s gay). The point is that Baldwin gets a pass no matter how many times this kind of crap spews from his lips. He didnt say this almost 30 yrs ago like Paula Deen (btw it’s not only conservatives that have come to her defense, but Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton as well); this was a few days ago! Also not too long ago he referred to a photographer as “coon”. This is not his first offense by far. So have about you do some research and learn about the issue before making ignorant comments?

    • wwbdinct

      Are you stupid? Did you actually read his tweets? He said he wanted to “F” him up. Does that sound like a friendly reference to you?

    • Derek plt

      You’re a great example of what you tried to project on to conservatives: your comment that conservatives are “programmed” & automatically reject anything to do w/ a lib, lib’s actions, etc..
      It’s truly dumbed down lib robots like yourself who reflexively pounce on the right because you’re so delusional & lost in your leftist mentality of poorgressive-hate programmed, attack-anything-conservative/defend everything anti-American leftism regardless of whether you know what you’re talking about, you have proven yourself to be ludicrously biased & embarrassingly uninformed (which indicates that the scope of information of which you’re lacking in other areas is evidently vast)

    • lainer51

      How can it be friendly to use the term “queen” when referring to gays?… you KNOW that is a slur; give it up…

    • TocksNedlog

      Threatening to put his foot up the guy’s ass is a “softball epithet”?

      Alec Baldwin is the biggest douche in the universe; just because he’s a big liberal doesn’t mean you have to flail around in a pathetic attempt to defend the indefensible.

    • Pat R.

      threatening to put his foot up someone’s ass-then claiming he would ‘like it’ ain’t very friendly IMHO. You want context-go look up each of the individuals involved. Baldwin called a photographer “Coon”-again, not exactly friendly and definitely a slur.
      Baldwin had been using such slurs for while-but in the last few years he’s really taken off.
      Was Paula Deen wrong in what she said? She sure was! She also said it decades ago and didn’t try to hide it. Baldwin doesn’t give a rat’s rear what he says and whom it’s aimed at-he knows he’ll get a pass.

    • mickeyco

      You with GLAAD by any chance?

      • trixiewoobeans

        I don’t know about THAT, but Zeke is a stone- cold misogynist!

    • DrSamHerman

      Look at how lefties spew venom for things said three decades ago but hypocritically let one of their own get away with murder. You are pathetic.

  • descolada9

    Who is surprised by this? Really, look at now NOW has acted over the decades. Alec is the right kind of lib, he’s rich and famous and he says the right thing at the right time for the right people. He will never be held responsible. The matter with Paula Deen? She was a heavy, white Southern woman who pushed “unhealthy” foods. There have been people who disliked her for years. Once they had the opportunity to go after her, with her own words, they wasted no time. Just another sign of now sick and demented our culture has become.

  • CDUB

      I wonder when Tina Fey will come out and lecture Alec Baldwin , like she did to Tracey Morgan…. I won’t hold me breath waiting for that to happen.

  • Joshua

    Liberalism and media work as the Catholicism of old. They excommunicate enemies and whoever they don’t like, but give friends and those that pay the correct indulgence a pass.

    • David Raineri-Maldonado

      I am a Catholic, and I don’t take such LIBEL of my Church lightly-while I won’t sue you, I WILL downvote, and warn others.

      • Joshua

        I am and was raised Catholic too. Do you not know the history of the abuse of Catholic indulgences? My point is that libs use their power the same way as then. They “excommunicated” Paula Deen and they “indulged” Baldwin.

      • Richard Jefferies

        You call it libel? Is it false to assert that the Church was selling indulgences? It is a factual assertion, you may not like it, but that doesn’t make it false, thus it is not libel.

  • M F Scotto

    The Left can do whatever they want. Tempest in a tea pot. They’ve won the war. They just weather a few waves and it’s back to vilifying anyone to the right of Stalin… ’cause they know it works and stifles speech. They’ve spent the last several days defending and forgiving “cracker” and “queen” as they destroy someone who uttered one word, 27 years ago, during a bank robbery… and she’s not even trying to defend it. They know they’ve won.

    • Derek plt

      They’ve won several battles but I wouldn’t say that they’ve won the war. As long as there are still determined, brave & honest people with true American values in this country, the battle continues.
      Besides, the left & their relatively modern twisted ideology combined with one of their most fanatic, reckless, incompetent, deceitful & disastrous comrades in the WH they just cannot sustain their position for very much longer. I think that leaves two outcomes: the left do win & America falls OR we Americans stand for our country, repair the hideous damage this current 3rd world Marxist POS POTUS has done to our country &repair our relations w/ our allies while putting America’s enemy nations back in their place, help the ones on the extreme left (who haven’t realized their errors by then) & the extreme right to realize that we are the Greatest country on Earth & we will carry on that greatness then pass it on to our children, the next generation (hopefully in a better state, or considering our current situation, an improving state with real, SINCERE Hope)

      • M F Scotto

      You can, but Uncle Bill is too afraid to. That would mean he would have to have balls enough to explain liberals are hypocrites instead of his trademark straddle-the-fence BS.

  • Guest

    It’s all about liberalism……if you support it, your personal behavior has no bearing on their view of you, they’re only interested in vilifying the behaviors of those who stray off the left wing Big Government reservation or examine their wasteful spending and lack of results.

    • AdoEdem

      Actually, that’s just the start of the Byzantine hierarchy of the victimhood death cult we fondly call leftistm. The foundation must be suitably leftist, otherwise you’re a racist-sexist-homophobic-religious bigot by default no matter what you say. From that point, there are various levels of victimhood, with the Most Oppressed Minority possessing Absolute Moral Authority.

      I’m going to start claiming to be a lesbian midget left-handed eskimo albino. Then, I can say anything I want and no one can talk back to me, ever. Because white heteronormative racist Christofascist righthanded height-typical melanin-balanced patriarchy.

      You’re a hoot. Let me guess, let me guess, is it because Tracy has a girl’s name?

    Baldwin has repeatedly shown himself to be pure scum over and over. Paula Deen has been generally seen as a sweet woman – hardly “hateful” … She loses her job, and Baldwin gets a pass???

    When others transgress, it is GLADD that gets to determine their fate, including the amount of sensitivity training required, and the number of PSA’s they must do.

    GLAAD cheapens and demeans its organization, its purpose, and its message when it invokes the double standard on hypocritical scum like Baldwin. They no longer have the moral authority to make anybody else jump through their hoops of political correctness.

    As for CaptialOne, they too need to do the right thing. Drop this POS now.

  • Cy

    Hipocracy from the left? No way!

    Also, thanks for speaking for all gays, GLAAD. I had no idea I was ok with homophobic slurs as long as the slur-slinger speaks out in support of a community I have nothing to do with until right now. You guys are the best! And by best I mean f*** off.

  • 912er

    Every time Balwin goes off on someone,he belittles them by stating things that would make his audience believe that homosexuality is a terrible way of life…as if thats the worst thing someone could be…and when its over they love him….A very strange alliance.

  • nickshaw

    Did GLAAD ever ask the opinions of the queens he went off on?
    Their opinions don’t matter, I guess.
    I doubt they would be so benevolent.
    They know exactly the context he was using it and it wasn’t the hip colloquialism used by gays among themselves.

  • Ty Mcwilliams

    Wait, doesn’t Mel Gibson have a bunch of Jewish friends? Politics aside, Mel and Alec are two peas in a pod. They both have severe anger issues, love to go ballistic on the phone, and spew anti- ‘you name it’ slurs.

    Tracy Morgan made some gay jokes (which is like totally unprecedented for someone that considers himself a comedian, y’know), so GLADD leads a condemnation tour. Alec Baldwin called someone a queen and threatened to hit him (though granted, Baldwin hitting someone has greater precedence that a comedian making a joke), and GLADD kisses his ass. Go figure.
