How can they justify that friendship?

They are in a state of denial. The fact that their cultural imperatives include Regressive politics is at odds with the fact that Muslim scriptures call for the death of homosexuals:

Hadith: "Narrated by Abdullah ibn Abbas: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: If you find anyone doing as Lot's people did, kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done."
(Sunan Abu Dawood, 38:4447)

"Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas: If a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy, he will be stoned to death."
(Sunan of Abu-Dawood – Book 38 Hadith 4448)

And then to turn around and blame Christians is absurd. Jesus never called for the death of homosexuals.

I didn't read the whole article yet. But the Gay Party has been turning this whole thing into a huge hot-air balloon for their dwindling victim narrative.

I have heard on the news how they are stepping up security at gay clubs and parades...and how the 'community is on edge'...

cause you know it wasn't a random Muslim terrorist...it's all them Conservative right wingers spreading hate.

I was thinking about this horrific union of the Left and Muslims...I get it: the enemy of my enemy is my friend but you would think they would take a look at that 'enemy of my enemy' to make sure they aren't worse than what you are protesting..

SOME Christians won't bake a gay wedding cake? hardly seems worth protesting when their good ally is strapping young gay men to chairs and throwing them off the roof. How can they justify that friendship?

I didn't read the whole article yet. But the Gay Party has been turning this whole thing into a huge hot-air balloon for their dwindling victim narrative. With genderless marriage being approved by SCOTUS, a gay character on almost every TV show, openly gay everything from athletes to weathermen, making a case for gays as a victimized class gets weaker and weaker. Then when you add the HUGE push-back over the tranny bathroom issue, there is even more ground lost by the Agenda. So this shooting is just want the Gay Party needed to resuscitate its "fight" in the most emotional way possible.

The message is loud and clear: These murdered and injured club-goers were gay first, American second. Gays are even criticizing public officials and media for either not mentioning the fact that the deceased and injured were gay...or even for not mentioning it FIRST, before describing them as anything else. Yanno, I wonder how someone who was killed in their massacre would feel if they knew that to the gay community, their achievements in life, and their American identity were taking a back seat to their gayness?

Brendan O'Neill asserts that solidarity with the essential humanity of the victims is being overwhelmed by the claims of identity politics.

Any comments?



oh I knew as soon as I heard that this was a gay nightclub that the Left would be using it to try to further their agenda...gun control. And deflect the idea that it was Islamic terrorism.

no, now the story is he was just a confused gay man, driven to insanity by our ridged Christian beliefs and laws..

"The growing demand for LGBT dorms in the UK parallels an increased demand on US college campuses for ‘racially themed dorms’ so that black students can live away from their white colleagues. ...

"Today, identity politics is so dominant that talk of expanding universalism appears hopelessly old-fashioned. The current generation of students scorn the notion of equality because they believe people only have interests in common with others who, at the most basic level, look like them. It is assumed that people with different skin colour, gender or sexuality experience the world in a qualitatively different way, and can neither speak about, nor on behalf of, each other. Worse, different groups of people are pitched against each other, as if the very existence of some groups, particularly white straight men, is a source of oppression."

While the federal government reviewed this taxpayer funded program to elimnate the more contentious bits, the State Premier of what is fondly termed Victoriastan has ordered the program be made compulsory in all state schools.


Obama had the Department of Education and the Department of Justice work together on a memo containing similar guidelines for every school district in America. They are attempting to use the threat of withholding federal funds as the price for non-compliance.

Mind you things have gotten even more ridiculous at the State University of California.

A commenter on a local blog writes:

We have moved to an age where Victimhood is now expressly sought to signal social status and virtue.

eg – an early adopter was Crazy Eyes Bill McKibbon

In a 1996 piece titled “Job and Matthew,” McKibben describes his arrival at college in 1978 as a liberal-leaning student with a suburban Protestant background. “My leftism grew more righteous in college,” he says, “but still there was something pro forma about it.” The problem? “Being white, male, straight, and of impeccably middle-class background, I could not realistically claim to be a victim of anything.”

At one point, in what he calls a “loony” attempt to claim the mantle of victimhood, McKibben nearly convinced himself that he was part Irish so he could don a black armband as Bobby Sands and fellow members of the Provisional Irish Republican Army died in a hunger strike. Yet even as he failed to persuade himself he was Irish, McKibben continued to enthusiastically support every leftist-approved victim group he could find. Nonetheless, something was missing. None of these causes seemed truly his own. When McKibben almost singlehandedly turned global warming into a public issue in 1989, his problem was solved. Now everyone could be a victim …

Global warming allows the upper-middle-class to join the proletariat, cloaking erstwhile oppressors in the mantle of righteous victimhood.

Forget the Transgender Bathroom Wars, things have gotten far more interesting in Oz according to this report in today's papers:

Roz Ward, the hardline Marxist behind the contentious Safe Schools program, has been ­appointed to a high-level committee advising the Victorian govern­ment on education issues...

Ms Ward, already a director of the Safe Schools Coalition Victoria, has joined the education reference group set up to provide advice on the government’s LGBTI education priorit­ies and identify new ways to improve equality for gay and transgender youth in schools…

Ms Ward, an academic with a degree in gender studies, has ­become the controversial face of the Safe Schools movement, largely due to her extreme Left political views; including publicly linking the program to a broader Marxist push to liberate society from “gender constructs”.


Safe Schools, ostensibly an anti-bullying program, sets out to teach queer theory (gender fluidity - reference to boys and girls discouraged, role plays imagining you have no genitals, penis tucking, breast binding, links to radical websites - the whole box and dice) to kids as young as seven.

While the federal government reviewed this taxpayer funded program to elimnate the more contentious bits, the State Premier of what is fondly termed Victoriastan has ordered the program be made compulsory in all state schools.

Milo, IMO we should automatically assume that any policy from the Left in this country works to the destruction of the Republic - as we have known it. after all, Obama did not mince words, he stated again and again that he was working towards a fundamental transformation of this country. many assumed that he just wanted to change health care delivery, but really he means much more than that. Obama and his followers want to fundamentally transform the US into a 3rd world multilingual, multicultural nation. look to Brazil - that is the future that Obama envisions for the US.

many did...but Obama's greatest trick was making so many people believe he was whatever they wanted him to be.."Hope and Change" was vague enough for people to put their own dreams into it. Some thought he meant he would make the country 'post racial' or turn Washington around to congeniality and cooperation, he'd stop the corruption (remember how he promised to not let lobbyists set agenda?)...it was all a big snake oil show.

^^
and this all is why there are many of us that distrust the same rhetoric coming from our side from Trump. Words are cheap....and we have learned from hard experience to watch carefully for misleading information.
