MSNBC host and actor Alec Baldwin, under fire for anti-homosexual rants, is trying to save his reputation as a liberal by pointing to the money he’s giving to the liberal-left. He writes, “…my foundation has donated over $11 million of a projected $15 million from revenue from my recent Capital One ads. Many people don’t know that and when informed actually find it hard to believe.”
Baldwin desperately wants fellow liberals to know that he is a funder of left-wing groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center, People for the American Way and the Brennan Center for Justice.
But in the latest incident, which threatens to derail his career as a host on MSNBC, TMZ caught Baldwin yelling “c**ksucking f*g” at a photographer trying to take pictures of his family. “Alec has a bad habit of using language that’s considered offensive to gays,” TMZ reported.
His show on the MSNBC cable channel, whose premier host is lesbian Rachel Maddow, was suspended for two weeks as a result of his anti-homosexual remarks.
“I think Rachel Maddow is perhaps the single most important television journalist on the air today,” Baldwin says, trying to mollify his homosexual critics.
On his first MSNBC show, he conducted a softball “interview” of the then-candidate for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, ignoring the Democrat’s communist background. “I was an early supporter of de Blasio’s,” Baldwin said.
In order to further bolster his left-wing credentials, the Alec Baldwin Foundation is listed as a member of the dinner committee for the Brennan Legacy Awards Dinner 2013 in New York City on November 19. The event is designed to honor long-time liberal public television journalist Bill Moyers, and others.
The Brennan Center is a major liberal organization that campaigns against the counter-terrorism and anti-crime programs of the New York City Police Department.
It appears Baldwin could have used some of those police to protect his family from the paparazzi. “In Bloomberg’s New York, 40 or 50 paparazzi are allowed to block streets, inconvenience homeowners, workers and shoppers, and make life miserable for my neighbors,” Baldwin complains. This is apparently what led to his anti-homosexual rant.
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a recipient of Baldwin Foundation money, is a group that usually finds conservatives guilty of “homophobia” for taking stands against the homosexual political agenda. On November 11, Baldwin’s Facebook page promoted the Southern Poverty Law Center, with someone writing in to Baldwin and saying, “I bet your buddies at SPLC would love to know how you feel about ‘faggots’…hypocrite.”
It’s impossible to believe the SPLC is not aware of Baldwin’s outbursts, since they frequently make news.
Baldwin used his foundation website to call the Southern Poverty Law Center one of the “amazing organizations” he supports, even though it was implicated in a violent homosexual attack on the headquarters of the Family Research Council (FRC) in Washington, D.C. The SPLC labeled the FRC a “hate group” for its stands in support of traditional values, and published a map showing gay rights activist Floyd Corkins where to find the organization in Washington, D.C. Corkins showed up at the FRC and proceeded to open fire with a gun. He wounded a security guard before being taken down and disarmed.
