Andrew Bolt has noticed the same thing I have…the left wing is silent on Islamism.
WHAT will it take for many in the Left to openly condemn the Islamic State? Why this silence in the face of evil?
In January, the Islamic State threw two men off a tall building in Iraq for the “crime” of being gay.
In February, they threw another gay man off a building, this time in Syria and, when he somehow survived, had a crowd stone him to death.
IS is in a war against gays — not just against Jews, Christians and any Muslim thought insufficiently devout.
But what have our main gay representatives — largely Left-leaning — said in response to such savagery against gays?
The NSW Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby? Silent.
Victoria’s Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby? Not one press release.
Labor frontbencher Penny Wong, openly lesbian? Nothing.
Former Greens leader Bob Brown, our first openly gay senator?
Current Greens leader Christine Milne? Not a tweet.
Indeed, not one of the 150 floats in Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian mardi gras on Saturday flew a banner of protest against this deadly persecution or the brand of faith which inspired it.
Yes, the faith. Many Muslim countries do permit gay sex, yet it is also true that all seven countries which punish homosexuality with death are Muslim, with the Koran damning gays as “people transgressing beyond bounds” who should have “rained down on them a shower (of brimstone)”.
So why no protest from the gay Left? Read more »
