NYT: GOP has always been much better at the art of twisting English for purposes of propaganda than those on the left – witness the rise of the term “pro-life” (as if anyone is “anti-life”), and laws like the Defense of Marriage Act, which denied federal benefits to same-sex couples.
Today’s prize goes to Michelle Malkin, the conservative commentator. Ms. Malkin tweeted last week about a ruling in Colorado in favor of a baker, Marjorie Silva, who declined to make cakes with biblical verses denouncing homosexuality.
Ms. Malkin called this a double standard favoring gay people because a court had earlier ruled against another baker who refused to provide a cake for a wedding between two people of the same gender. “Just in: CO Civil Rights agency rules bakery can refuse anti-gay cake, but it’s discrimination to refuse pro-gay cake,” Ms. Malkin tweeted.
