GLAAD

Alec Baldwin Gets a Pass

'Cause We're Shameless Starf**kers

Alec Baldwin just got a "Get Out of Homophobia Jail Free" card from the people at GLAAD ... because they don't have the balls to go after a self-proclaimed Hollywood liberal.

After Baldwin essentially called for the gay-bashing of a Daily Mail reporter ... the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation -- the same org. that's CRUSHED people for making far less harmful and threatening statements --  asked critics to back off Baldwin.

"Alec Baldwin is making it clear [to GLAAD]  that the intent behind his tweets does not excuse his language, especially at a time when there were 11 incidents of violence against gay men in New York City just last month. As we all work to end such senseless acts of violence, allies like Baldwin are right to use these moments to reinforce support for the community and LGBT equality."

But the statement continues ... and might reveal the REAL reason they're letting Alec off easy:

"Alec Baldwin has worked with several organizations and added his voice to a campaign by Fight Back NY to encourage the State Senate to pass marriage equality with out actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson. He also had a guest role on Will & Grace and played a gay character in the 2006 Off-Broadway revival of 'Entertaining Mr. Sloane.'"

It's almost like the org. is afraid if they bash Baldwin, he'll STOP doing pro-gay projects. Hmmmm ...

If Bill O'Reilly said the same thing ... with the same explanation -- ya think GLAAD would still think it was no big deal?  Hmmmm ...

What's with the Alec Baldwin witch hunt? I don't think he's homophobic. His creepy little brother Stephen, maybe. Alec just has anger management issues.

I don't think Alec Baldwin is homophobic. He just gets pissed off and goes off on his tirades, trying to think of the meanest thing he can say about the person he is mad at. I am not saying he is right because he clearly needs to learn to reel in his temper, but I don't see why people have to turn it into something more than the temper tantrum that it is is. Its not his first, its not his last. But I would hardly put him in the "Mel Gibson" category.

GLAAD has no power. What do they even do? Send angry letters and sign up their targets for Black Inches magazine? Point and laugh at them. Who cares if they are mad at you. Do they REALLY speak for all LGBTQWRXNWO4LYFE people? Don't respond to them or even acknowledge them.

Paula Deen campaigned for and voted for this current president twice but she is getting crucified for remarks she made 30 years ago. I guess since she cannot portray a black character on TV she is of no use to those she scorned.

NBC is not going to fire him, they do not care what he does or says. They are one of the most liberal (Media) organization in the U.S.
