Gays Checking Out Kos's Junk, "Anti-Gay" Article Mysteriously Disappears
Here is a letter in which Markos Moulitsas Zúniga, aka "Kos", defends the pre-Clinton policy of not allowing gays in the military. You'll notice the date on the article he wrote in The Northern Star, the student newspaper of Northern Illinois University where he was an editor, is January 25th 1993-- just three days after President Clinton was inaugurated and right in the middle of the gays in the military controversy.
I wonder how John Aravosis, the editor of the America Blog, feels about Kos? He's the same guy who called Clinton's policy on gays in the military, "anti-gay". So, if Clinton's policy is anti-gay wouldn't the preceding policy be even more anti-gay? You might even call it gobsmackingly homophobic and the product of the American Taliban!
This is the same Kos who thought it was ok to help Aravosis out Jeff Gannon because:
"He has been extremely anti-gay in his writings. He's been a shill for the Christian right. So there's a certain level of hypocrisy there that I thought was fair game and needed to be called out."Hypocrisy, thy name is Kos!
What's even better? Markos pulls the "I served in the military but you [Bill Clinton] didn't" card. A message he would come to perfect as cover for his vile criticisms of the military because, you know, he's been in the shit and has therefore earned the right to call our men and women baby killers!
