Offensive gay joke removed from The Dilemma trailer

Many on the liberal left say that they are not actually censorious; that it's the people on the other side you've really got to worry about. But the examples of liberal bullying and intimidation are far more numerous than any other kind in the west. And the pettiness of their complaints often reaches a surreal degree.

Take this recent furore about a gay joke in the trailer of the movie The Dilemma starring Vince Vaughn. Gay rights activists managed to have the gag taken out of the film's trailer. Director Ron Howard, who is hardly a conservative, is not backing down any further, and insists on keeping the gag in the film itself.

I suspect even many liberals are shaking their heads in disbelief at the sheer intensity of the outrage over just one line of dialogue - in a comedy. You'd think the zealots at GLAAD would have much more important things to complain about.
