How dare those Israelis support gay rights

The poor Israelis can’t do anything right. The  “progressive left” criticise everything they do, even when it totally agrees with progressive-left values. They have demonised the Israelis so much that they appear incapable of acknowledging anything good that they do.

At a gay rights conference Friday dedicated to advancing and supporting “allied movements for justice and equality,” hundreds of demonstrators showed up to obstruct a Jewish reception hosted by an organization that builds connections between LGBTQ communities in North America and Israel.

…protestors filled the hallway holding signs that read “Cant Pinkwash away your guilt” and “Pinkwashing isn’t pretty.”
The term “pinkwashing” is used to suggest that Israel promotes its tolerance of and protections for LGBTQ individuals as a way to downplay or obscure its treatment of Palestinians.

They choose to ignore the fact that many gay Palestinians have fled Palestine for the safety and acceptance of Israel. I challenge the same activists to call Palestine out for its abuse of gay Palestinian men and women.  It seems that all gay activists are equal but some are more equal than others.

A universal truth is well… universal

I don’t understand. When the Left talk about human rights, women’s rights, gay rights and children’s rights we are on the same page. I am a conservative, right wing, libertarian but some ideas are universal. You don’t have to vote one way or the other to agree about basic human rights and what is right and what is wrong. What I don’t understand, and I mean this sincerely, is why some on the Left support these things when left-wing activists promote them but condemn them when right-wing activists promote them. It is as if they think that they, exclusively, own those views and if we say we share them then we must have a hidden agenda.

We have common ground here people. If we work together so much more can be achieved. I can only wonder if this is really about fear and that all to often it is the right-hand side of the political spectrum that has the courage to be ‘provocative’ to risk harm and to speak up in the face of death threats. When I believe something it is not skin deep it goes all the way to my core. I do not change my stance because it is no longer easy or safe to hold that view. I hold a view because I believe it.

A while back I wrote about an upcoming Gay march through a mainly Muslim area of Sweden. The media have been strangely silent about it so I went looking to find out what actually happened when it went ahead. Remember that these kind of marches are very common in Sweden as they have been happening for a long time and are part of their culture.

Sweden is widely known for its progressive political stance regarding the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual and Queer) community, with the highlight being decriminalising homosexual relationships in 1944.

The only difference this time was that it was organised by the right not the left.

What do Brian Tamaki and Muhammad have in common?

The New Zealand media is shocked at the ignorance and prejudice of Brian Tamaki towards Gay people but as usual ignore the much worse reality of Islam, a ‘ religion ‘ that even in today’s modern day and age actually murders and executes people for being gay. I would love to see a New Zealand reporter actually go and ask the hard questions about homosexuals of a New Zealand Islamic leader or a Principal of a New Zealand Islamic school. No one wants to ask the questions because they know that they won’t like the answers.

Brian Tamaki might be intolerant ( that wonderful politically correct word ) but he is not advocating that gay people be executed or murdered. When Gay, liberal men defend Islam or talk about it being a religion of peace I want to scream.

Open your eyes gentlemen, Islam is no friend of yours.

Destiny Church leader Brian Tamaki has launched an astonishing attack on the gay community.

He’s blasted what he calls “gay power”, and says it’s the biggest problem facing the world. Mr Tamaki warned his followers of an entire generation of children being bisexual, saying the perversion of homosexuality is leading the charge.

Mr Tamaki said he’s shocked in particular at the decision to endorse gay marriage in Ireland.

And he’s warned of an entire generation of children who’ll be bisexual, saying the perversion of homosexuality is leading the charge.

Green MP Jan Logie said it’s an astonishing attack.

“I speak for myself when I say I find it offensive that my identity as a person and who I am is being described as something that is open to influence by political whim.”

Jan Logie said it’s a warped view if the love between two people is being described as the biggest problem facing the world.

“He seems to be reverting to messages of hate as a way of trying to gain support for his own mission.”

Ted Cruz calls out the media and the left on gay rights

I’ve been saying this for months now…that the left and media are silent on ISIS and their treatment of women and homosexuals. They are more concerned with whether or not our soldiers might end up in combat and how that can be avoided than thinking about why it is that ISIS must be defeated.

Ted Cruz has been under attack in the US about his views on gay rights and he finally had something to say about the fascination of the media with his views.

Truth Revolt reports:

After a string of questions on his opinion on same-sex marriage and gay rights, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (TX) called out the left and the leftist media (particularly MSNBC) for “obsess[ing]” over opinions on sexuality while “ISIS is executing homosexuals.”

The comments came during a campaign stop Tuesday in Beaumont, where Cruz met with county officials and other local leaders to discuss his positions on foreign policy, promoting economic growth, and defending the Constitution. When reporters began to ask him about his views on same-sex marriage, Cruz called out the left and the media for what he characterized as a myopic perspective on gay rights (transcript via Texas Tribune):

CRUZ: Is there something about the left—and I am going to put the media in this category—that is obsessed with sex? ISIS is executing homosexuals—you want to talk about gay rights? This week was a very bad week for gay rights because the expansion of ISIS, the expansion of radical, theocratic, Islamic zealots that crucify Christians, that behead children and that murder homosexuals—that ought to be concerning you far more than asking six questions all on the same topic.   Read more »

Courtney Hoffman (Facebook)

Todays face of the day Courtney Hoffman reacted in an unexpected way when a business that was happy to serve Gay people in its restaurant refused to cater a Gay wedding. By reacting the way she did she made a much more powerful statement about Gay love than any of the haters who threatened and harassed the business owners.

A Gay perspective on Islam

dsc_0104-635x421

I have given this article the title  ‘A Gay perspective on Islam’, but after re  reading both the blog post quotes and the advertisement I realised that both have failed to link Sharia Law ( Which is Islam ) to the way homosexuals are treated in Palestine, Syria and Iran. It is this liberal failure to gloss over the root cause and to instead pretend it is a terrorist/autocratic thing that deeply concerns me. Why this fear to say what is so obvious? Saudi Arabia is held up as an almost perfect example of Islam and we all know how they treat women and gays.

The rights of LGBT people in Saudi Arabia are unrecognized. Homosexuality is frequently a taboo subject in Saudi Arabian society and is punished with imprisonment, fines, corporal punishment, capital punishment, whipping/flogging, and chemical castrations.

I think people are confused because they see Islam as a religion and separate from politics/government. It is the fact that religion and politics are the exact same thing in Islam that is the problem. The Islamic activists are very honest about this. They say Islam is Sharia and Sharia is Islam. Historically and now there is no shortage of hard evidence that this is the case, so why are the victims so afraid to name their oppressor? I think that the below advertisement is great but it is like the victim of child abuse speaking out against the social worker who placed them with the pedophile rather than speaking out against the pedophile who abused them.

Today’s face of the day is Kevin Hague, the new co-leader of the Green Party.
I did a little research and judging by this image he is going to be as focused on Cameron as his predecessor, Russell, ‘ Who are you texting? ‘ Norman.

Feral and proud.
