For John, BLUF: Tolerance for me, but not for thee. Nothing to see here; just move along.
This kind of reminds one of the Cracker Barrel incident. Home and Garden Network (HGTV) has pulled a show because of the social/political views of the two stars. The headline at Breitbart is "Christian Hosts Lose HGTV Show for Opposing Homosexuality, Abortion". The lede:
Deadline reports that HGTV has pulled a home-flipping reality series after receiving pressure from the leftist Right Wing Watch. The Benham brothers were set to star in "Flip It Forward" until Right Wing Watch reported Tuesday that the Christian brothers opposed homosexuality and abortion:So, it isn't the overall record of HGTV that counted (Deadline reports "HGTV also announced it had greenlighted a design competition show from Ellen DeGeneres."), but each individual act. Diversity, it appears, does not exist in any large measure on the Progressive portion of the social/political spectrum, at least with Right Wing Watch.♠
