In a CNN Crossfire discussion about ex-NFL player Derrick Ward’s Twitter meltdown over the Michael Sam kiss, Newt Gingrich said that LGBT folks should be more “open and understanding” and tolerant of those who object to their existence.
“You guys talk about how you want to be inclusive, except of course if somebody tweets this, then [there are] death threat or let’s send them off to sensitivity training. I mean it strikes me as repression, that’s not inclusive. Shouldn’t you also be teaching people who are gay to be open and understanding [of anti-gay views]?”
Of course, the answer is “no.” You don’t teach African-Americans to be more tolerant of a racist.
