Capital One, Alec Baldwin, and the problem with This country

It is disturbing that GLAAD is using threats and boycotts against Captial One because they interpreted Alec Baldwin's tweets as "homophobic." 
An even worse commentary on the state of our society is the fact that nobody seems to care that he also physically threatened another person and used the worst profanity possible to do so. 
Isn't this the same nation that was appalled when Rhett Butler uttered that famous four-letter word in 1939? Isn't this the same nation that has many laws against threatening others? 
Yet, it's the homosexual community that is getting all the press. It seems they have taken lessons from Al Sharpton in using the media to both intimidate and threaten those who do not play according to their rules.
