Andrew Sullivan: Liberals Like Rachel Maddow Need To Stop Sounding “So Fucking Condescending” [VIDEO]

CNN reports: Andrew Sullivan says it’s time for journalists to talk publicly about President Trump’s “mental stability.” “To have such an unstable figure, incapable of accepting reality, at the center of the world, is an extremely dangerous thing,” Sullivan said in an interview for Sunday’s “Reliable Sources” on CNN.

HomoQuotable – Andrew Sullivan

“I never believed this would happen in my lifetime when I wrote my first several TNR essays and then my book, Virtually Normal, and then the anthology and the hundreds and hundreds of talks and lectures and talk-shows and call-ins and blog-posts and articles in the 1990s and 2000s. I thought the book, at least, would be something I would ...

Andrew Sullivan To Stop Blogging

Citing recent health issues, his marriage, and the stresses brought on by 15-hour days over 15 years, Andrew Sullivan today told his readers that he will soon stop blogging. I am saturated in digital life and I want to return to the actual world again. I’m a human being before I am a writer; and a writer before I am ...

HomoQuotable – Andrew Sullivan

“If you run a public accommodation and use it to refuse service to a minority, you’re on the wrong side of the law (at least since the Civil Rights Movement). So why am I concerned by the latest case of a lesbian couple suing a family business that refused to rent out their property for a same-sex wedding? Simply because ...

Sullivan Backs Matthew Shepard Truthers

“The question here is whether the crime was solely a function of the homophobic hatred of two strangers who beat up and brutally murdered someone merely because he was gay. That’s the official line of the Matthew Shepard Foundation and the Human Rights Campaign. Of course these motives could also have been involved. I’m arguing that meth can explain all ...

Andrew Sullivan Writes About PrEP

“Here are your options: the blue pill or the red pill. Take the one-pill-a-day Truvada and never get HIV; take the often one-pill anti-retroviral pill, and you will never give someone HIV. To make doubly sure, you can always use a condom. Except almost every man who ever had sex hates condoms – and, unlike a pill you take every ...

HomoQuotable – Andrew Sullivan

“One of the greatest bodily regrets of my life – apart from having my foreskin chopped off as an infant because it was allegedly too ample – is that I have no back hair. My brother? An ape. God knows why this aspect of manhood has loomed so large in my erotic imagination … but there we are. The earliest ...

HomoQuotable – Andrew Sullivan

“Walking around Williamsburg last night, I was also reminded of one of the unique charms of NYC in the summer: vast piles of rotting garbage piled on the sidewalks, with that sweet yet nauseating smell of decomposing groceries sitting in the humid fetid air, and rancid food juices oozing over the sticky sidewalks. With my windows open to counter the ...

Andrew Sullivan On Sterling’s Ban

“If Brendan Eich had made comments telling his friends to keep away from faggots, if he’d used any such terminology or had ever been shown to have discriminated against gays in the workplace or in his daily interactions, then his case would be very similar. But no such comments are in the public or private record, and there’s zero evidence ...

A coalition of well-known homocons and others today released a public statement on the resignation of former Mozilla CEO Brandon Eich.

Sullivan Doubles-Down On Mozilla Flap

Yesterday Andrew Sullivan acknowledged that the resignation of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich was not the work of gay activists but came as the result of pressure from the “techie straight left.” (Ben Shapiro appears to concede that point as well.) But Sullivan remains outraged. A civil rights movement without toleration is not a civil rights movement; it is a cultural ...

Frank Bruni On The Mozilla Flap

“A leading supporter of gay marriage, [Andrew] Sullivan warned other supporters not to practice ‘a fanaticism more like the religious right than anyone else.’ I can’t get quite as worked up as he did. For one thing, prominent gay rights groups weren’t part of the Mozilla fray. For another, Mozilla isn’t the first company to make leadership decisions (or reconsiderations) ...

Signorile Vs Sullivan

Yesterday Andrew Sullivan denounced the campaign against now-former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, declaring that if the Eich controversy represents the gay rights movement today, he no longer wants any part of it. Michelangelo Signorile responded to Sullivan this morning in a post which contends that it wasn’t Eich’s donation to the Prop 8 campaign that did him in. An excerpt: ...

HomoQuotable – Andrew Sullivan

“The guy who had the gall to express his First Amendment rights and favor Prop 8 in California by donating $1,000 has just been scalped by some gay activists. Will he now be forced to walk through the streets in shame? Why not the stocks? The whole episode disgusts me – as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant ...

Andrew Sullivan On “Homosexual”

“I like the term ‘homo’! I use it all the time – about myself and others, although I also often use ‘fag’ as well. The gay thought-police would be aghast, but the intent is what matters. Mine is mostly benign. Mostly. But mainly, one great legacy of the gay community has been our love of freedom, especially of speech. For ...

HomoQuotable – Andrew Sullivan

“Robertson is a character in a reality show. He’s not a spokesman for A&E any more than some soul-sucking social x-ray from the Real Housewives series is a spokeswoman for Bravo. Is he being fired for being out of character? Nah. He’s being fired for staying in character – a character A&E have nurtured and promoted and benefited from. Turning ...
