I was going to comment on Miguel’s last post and then decided to make a post of my own on the subject.
Miguel found this image somewhere on the internet:
I don’t actually find it all that surprising.
Radical leftism- progressivism – is an evil and insidious political ideology that is every bit as destructive and morally bankrupt as Radical Islam.
No, I will not back down from that statement.
Many years ago I was introduced to a group that was once called Queers for Palestine and now known as Queers Undermining Israeli Terrorism (QUIT!). Let that sink in for a moment. Israeli, which has full gay rights, which has the largest and only gay pride parade in the Middle East and Central Asia, is being attacked by a gay interest group. A group who’s members would be beheaded, stoned, thrown from buildings, or hung from cranes, in EVERY OTHER nation in the region.
The LGTB community in the US has been openly hostile to Israeli gays. Israeli gays have been thrown out of LGTB rights conferences. Israel has been accused of Pinkwashing – an anti-Semetic social justice paradox where Israel is criticized for being a gay friendly nation. The LGBT community has been at the tip of the spear in the BDS (Boycott, Divest, and Sanction) movement, which is an anti-Semitic movement to stop trade with Israel and target Israeli citizens traveling abroad, singling them out for harassment because of Israel’s actions, while ignoring the atrocities carried out by EVERY OTHER nation in the region.
The Left is full of anti-Semites. The further left you go, the worse it gets. Until you get all the way the Liberal Mecca, Berkeley California (where rational thought goes to die) where the most tolerant people on earth go around painting swastikas on things.
So to find out that the far left, vocal , LGBT community is racially pro-Islam doesn’t surprise me at all. Jew haters stick together.
Absolutely none of this is to justify the attack on the nightclub in Orlando.
In fact, it is the opposite.
Perhaps this attack, call it the LGBT 9/11, will wake at least some of the LGBT community up from it’s progressive, intellectual stupor. We are the same now.
The shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando and the shooting at a Jewish nightclub in Tel Aviv were carried out by the same people (radical Muslims) for the same reason (Jihad) during the same holiday (Ramadan).
Winston Churchill once said about Nazi Germany: An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
You cannot appease the radical Islamists. You can’t march for Palestine and demand boycotts against Israel in the hope that it will keep you from being targeted. There are more than enough racial Muslims to kill us both.
To borrow some words from Benjamin Franklin: We must hang together, or assuredly, we will all hang, or be stoned, or beheaded, or shot, or blown up, or burned alive together.
